As My Heart Beats (Remastered)


Author Comments

(Note: I am aware of the heat at 4:25. I am in the process of correcting this mastering issue.)

Music and Lyrics Composed by: Jon Babb (Bosa)
Vocals by: Asja Kadric

This is a remaster of my previous song. After receiving feedback, I brought up the vocals some and I added a few minor extras. This is more of my classical style rather than the usual cinematic style.

Asja Kadric is best known for her work with Jeremy Soule and performing "Fear Not This Night." She has also worked with Two Steps From Hell in the past, so she was my first choice during the planning stage of production.

I actually fucking cried.

This is a wonderful piece. I'm going through some stuff and this hit me hard

Bosa responds:

Thank you, I'm glad it can help you in some way.


Bosa responds:

Thank you!

Honestly, the entire piece is so smooth that when playing it in the background I didn't even notice the heat at 4:25 until I read the description. Your work is always so nice (even remasters like this), and I always perk up a bit when I get an email saying you've released something new.

Thanks so much for all you do.

Bosa responds:

And I always enjoy and appreciate your feedback. I'm very thankful that there are people here like you who support me during the difficult creative processes. You're awesome.

Take care,

This is simply gorgeous, Jon. Once you fix those moments where it hits the wall a little too hard, it will be perfect. Well, about as perfect as we're capable of achieving here on earth, at least.

Rather ironically, my initial thought was that the vocals were the tiniest touch too loud in the mix, but some of her notes are sung with such emotive softness that they would be almost washed out by the instruments if they were any lower.

Not ashamed to admit that the song got me a little choked up. Hitting an emotional chord is like the holy grail for any musician, so I would be remiss if I neglected to mention it.

Bosa responds:

Thank you SO MUCH! You don't know how much that means to me, and I really needed to hear that from somebody; but coming from you makes it even more special!

Yes, I do plan on cleaning up those few spots a bit and maybe editing the voice some more. Hopefully by the time I'm done we will have something worth the effort. Again, I am very thankful for your review and always appreciate your friendship.

Take care of yourself Chromo,
