City of Bristol, UK /
Influences: Jimmy Eat World, Nine Inch Nails, Foo Fighters, Tenacious D, Metallica, U2, Alkaline Trio, Slash, REM, Nirvana, Lady Gaga, Soundgarden, Billy Talent
I am a Bristol-based singer-songwriter and home recording enthusiast. I also do vocals, guitar, bass & occasional drums with notionally-London based rock trio AvidFan (http://avidfan.net) with bandmate @Sw1n3flu. This is my second FAWM (last years efforts are here http://soundcloud.com/avidfanman/sets/fawm-2012), I am very excited to get back at it, looking to redeem myself after my poor showing at 50/90.
I will be recording using GarageBand for iOS & also for the first time for Mac.
If you are interested, here is my warm-up track (FAWM-up track, if you like!) recorded in January: http://soundcloud.com/avidfanman/free

Thank you for your nice comment on my piano piece Why did it happen.
I love your comment, I wish one day it would be in a movie. It's rather a dream though
@zeroshift Feb 21
Thanks! This whole thing's been more a case of 'i wonder what that button does?' tomfoolery. one day..one day i'll actually know what i'm doing. then we're in trouble.
@zeroshift Feb 21
AHHH, sorry, I did wonder how to properly reply to people. Thanks for the feedback, especially on LDV, you got it in one (as always)
@arthurrossi Feb 21
Done! thanks once again for this awesome collab!
@arthurrossi Feb 21
I already enjoyed our two previous collabs a lot, thank you so much for this gorgeous song! I absolutely love the tune, especially the verses have such a wonderful sing-along-feel... And your voice still sounds awesome - despite the flu... I hope you will feel better soon...
Thank you so much once again, it's really great how it turned out!
@musicsongwriter Feb 20
Hi James, you are very welcome, thank you very much for letting me know about your demo to Arthur's beautiful lyric You are the Sun. You've created a fantastic demo. Awesome collaboration
@arthurrossi Feb 20
Hey! Thank for the great comment! I would look very, very forward if you gave it a go!
@will87 Feb 20
Thanks man, ha yeah it was all I could do to not sing 'woke up, got out of bed...'
@conghal Feb 20
Thanks for the comment, definitely look forward to revisiting stuff when all this craziness is over. Organ and slow drums is a great idea.
@jsherling Feb 19
Thanks for the input - on listening back to it, I do think the guitar is too low in the mix for "Oh God (Psalm 151)" *5399. The headphones I'm using at the moment have a weak bass response, so I'll have to listen on my better headphones at home and compare. It could be that I need to reduce the bass if I increase the guitar to avoid it sounding to muddy.
@arthurrossi Feb 18
Hey! I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful comment on "I like the way you are"!
@writeandwrong Feb 18
Ahhhh, thanks for the feedback. Lol I was wondering how many people would remember the Bobits ha ha. Glad we were able to get you to laugh when you aren't feeling well. Hope you are on the mend and feel better soon. Take care!!
@snoozin Feb 18
Thanks for your positive feedback on 'Finish Line'....If you would like to give the music a go, I'd be interested in seeing what you come up with....after listening to some of your work, I'm sure it will be intriguing. Thanks....I should add that I think a couple of other fawmers might take it on as well, or so they have mentioned it, so if you still want to give it a try, I'd be happy to hear your take on it.
@soapmonster Feb 17
Hey thank you so much! I did it all myself
@adforperu Feb 16
Ha, that's ok - I realise now! Give him a slap from me
