Artist Bio

Influences:   Jon Foreman, Switchfoot, Jars of Clay, Fiction Family, Steven Delopoulos, Ages and Ages

I have a fondness for a variety of instruments, and enjoy making music on anything I can get to produce sound.

I have shifted the focus of my writing this year. Usually, I just start to write and then shape the song once I see what theme is surfacing. I've had a lot of good results that way, but now I'm starting to write with sync licensing in mind. I intend to polish and submit the songs with the best fit for placement in television, film, and advertisements. So you can expect a lot of what you hear from me this year to be more cinematic. 🙂

Please let me know if any of my songs this year sound like they would fit in a specific show or commercial. I would greatly appreciate it, and take it as a compliment! If any of you have had success in this arena, I would also be grateful for any tips. And of course, feedback is always welcome!

I'm looking forward to making this my most productive FAWM ever. The last 2 years I've done 19-20 songs while working full time...this year, I scheduled a week off, so we'll see what happens.

Thank you, fellow FAWMers, for being the most constructive, supportive, courageous songwriters anywhere and everywhere. You all rock just for putting yourselves out there.

    Hi! I am already on this site just forgot all about it...not sure how to follow people on here. Doesn't look like I ever completed my profile...

  • @zecoop  Mar 6

    Appreciate the listens and nice comments... Thank you! I do write a lot of atmospheric, or moody instrumentals that seems like they would go with TV, Web or whatever. No idea how to get started in that though. Looks like you are headed that way (and I'll be checking out some music), so if you have any leads or tips, just let me know how to get going. 😀

  • @stephiesongwriter Feb 10

    So you do much stuff with NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Assoication International...but they have chapters all over...)? I'm just wondering if that might be a place to connect with publishers and pitch songs for synch and what not..

  • @stephiesongwriter Feb 10

    cool americana feel

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 8

    the mods have said that there's nothing they can do about it- and i know some other folks who have the same problem with firefox, i dont know why , maybe the version you're using?supposedly mine is up to date, but im not much of a computer person... as i said, if you 'enable downloads' then those folks affected can listen...

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 7

    i'd like to listen to some of your songs, but in firefox, the player won't play (the mods here have looked into this, there's nothing they can do) If you enable downloads, tho, then us firefox people can listen.... (its a box you can check for each song when you post or anytime after)

  • @jmadison  Feb 1

    Hey, thanks for listening to my song about Eric. Yes, he laughed quite a bit, which was really my goal. 😀

  • @kissinginpublic  Jan 31

    Likewise looking forward to hearing yours! I was going to sit it out this year, but I'll do at least a couple.

  • @mkd  Jan 31

    Thanks for your kind words on my thread. Here's to a great month!

  • @metalfootlings Jan 31

    On behalf of Footling#2 -- thanks for listening to The Countries of Europe!

  • @cloudboy  Jan 26

    Yeah, I thought the same thing! How the hell have we not crossed paths?! Regarding a collab, I think our voices would blend well together. I think a piano/guitar thang would be fun. I'd be down sir!

  • @ayehahmur  Jan 25

    Thanks for the kind words! I've not managed to get through all of that thread yet, but am looking forward to hearing yours soon. And thanks for the welcome!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 25

    And a welcome back to FAWM to you as well! Hope 2018 is a wonderful time for you.

  • @nuj4x Jan 25

    Thank you for the generous comment on my soundboard! I've read through your bio and I can't wait to hear what cinematic goodness you come up with! 😁

  • @brrrse  Jan 25

    Welcome back to FAWM! Good luck with the sync-songs. Follow your passion! Have a good year!

  • @cloudboy  Jan 24

    Hey man, if you're into any collabs, let me know. Happy FAWMing!
