Influences: Rock, metal, 8bit chip tunes, funk, grunge + many many more
Pretty good jack of all trades, master of none. Started as a drummer in 2003, bought bass, guitar and keyboard in 2006 because I liked multi-instrumentalists like Lenny Kravitz, Mike Patton and Devin Townsend, and been on that route ever since. My main instruments is still my ears - been doing live mixing since 1999 and studio work since 2007. Interned at Finnvox (2012) and Harju (2007) studios and have Bachelors degree in Music technology, and Music, Mind & Technology - Masters degree program from University of Jyväskylä.
My goal for FAWM is to write, compose and record all the tracks. My FAWM's so far went like this:
2013 - My first year, managed to write 14 songs, but I didn't consider myself succesful: songs 7, 8, and 12 were lyrics only, and songs 1, 6, 9, 11 and 14 were instrumentals, so all and all, I managed to make 5 songs. The song called "New York, New York" was released on my first EP:
2014 - Had to work on a cruise ship for most of the month, so I managed to write only 4 full songs, one instrumental and one was left half-done.
2015 - Managed to write 12 songs, released all of them as an album in January 2017: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-0Ow...
2016 - New relationship happened (we are currently engaged). Managed to write exactly zero new songs. Wrote vocals to one song, that is currently unreleased, but will be featured on an upcoming album.
2017 - I managed to write 15 songs. I recycled 5 old ideas from way back to make them into full songs, but still two thirds of the songs were 100% original and written in February.
