Artist Bio

Influences:   I just love good songs/lyrics/musicians in whatever genre, if it's good it's good.

I play bass the whole year round.
And then suddenly in february I pick up a guitar, play some keys and start to sing. Every year I promise myself to practice more on guitar and keys and take singing lessons but every year as soon as FAWM ends the keys and guitar get locked away and I don't touch them for the rest of the year and my mouth stays shut too.
Guess I'm having too much fun playing the bass.

    Sorry for the auto correct spelling mistake -it just changed my spelling - should have been' Thankyou for breaking my zong ' .

    If you would ever consider a collaboration I have some lyrics that would I think work well with the orchestral style and feel of your recent song and that I would love to have a collaborator on.

    And when I say 'five bands' what I am saying is that, at that point it doesn't sound like any one of them in particular and you've come up with something nicely original. It's more like, oh that guitar tone there, or that key riff. A very nice mix indeed

    Haha... "Smell melody and a really compelling at of lyrics" - That would be my phone having fun with autocorrect! How about Sweet melody, Mr Phone? No? Smell works better for you? Anyway... I can't remember all the ones that were hitting me at the time, but the main one (to me) is definitely Men at Work (or Colin Hay). There's a bit of later Genesis in there too, I think, with the cool keyboards and changes from pop to more complex. Really nice smooth pop, but with a deeper message. That was a really nice tune with plenty of musical surprises. .

    hej, there is actually a song/poem in portuguese that consists of reading the phonebook (in this case, the yellow pages):

    "You have to get someone to sing on this one"
    OK... I got someone to sing on that one - Karl killed it!! A friend also added lead

    Hey, thanks for your nice comment. I have no idea about music theory, so it's always great when a savvy person tells me what I did there.

    You've got some really nice songs here. i Like! Harmonies and ideas going in all sorts of directions is really my cup of tea. Brilliant!

    I love Fracture too! Here's my attempt at it from a while ago:

    Thanks for the listen to The Way it Goes.
    That was me playing the harmonica.

  • @majordanby  2 weeks

    Thanks for listening to Be Good Be Else Be Gone. This is the first full song I’ve written in a longtime and it came from nowhere. I initially found the chords, whilst recording them for reference I ad libbed the words. Dan’s a fan of Radiohead, I’m not really so not sure what I was thinking. The muse obviously has his/her reasons. (Karl).

  • @sciren  2 weeks

    Same to you! I’ll be listening, and looking forward to your feedback as usual! Happy FAWM!

  • @cowex  2 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words! So far, all my instrumentation this year has been via VSTi, so you're spot on. I think they're all Komplete 10 Ultimate instruments.

    The Crazy/Stacy/Lazy bass uses the "Scarbee Pre-Bass - Amped - Punchy" instrument via Kontakt 5. Looks like I didn't even mess with EQ/distortion/compression for the bass track either, so that's a pretty faithful example of the sound. It's a really fun/expressive instrument to play with.

    I was also really impressed by the "Jazz Guitar" Band instrument, as heard on the left channel of my Poop song (though I'm not sure if it comes with Kontakt or part of some other set). I'm not great at playing a real guitar, so getting that sound with MIDI felt so good.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have other questions I can help with!

  • @ayehahmur  4 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words! I enjoyed yours too. As a fan of proper 70s easy listening I could see this being sung absolutely unironically by Tony Bennet or Perry Como. And that's very much a good thing.
