Neil Williamson 14


Glasgow UK   Nov 2017  

Artist Bio

Influences:   The usual ones for a pianist: Elton, Tom Waits, Ben Folds, Ron Mael and any new music I can get my ears on.

I'm a writer and musician from Glasgow, Scotland. Been songwriting on and off since the 80s, but for the last 13 years most of my material has been in the service of my now defunkt band, murnie ( I'm fond of unusual subjects for lyrics, but that doesn't mean I don't take it seriously.

Collaborations: Not this year, sorry. Let me work myself out first.

Note on recordings: for FAWM I'm going to be recording songs quick on my phone, so apologies if things are a little hard to make out.

    Hey! If you want to do an album swap I'd be happy to listen to something from you if you have an album, or order with your tracks. Mine to throw down would be my best album.

    Thanks for listening to Rags & Moose! I'm glad it was effective. I think I might just edit the words and melody slightly and leave it at that!

    Hey there, just so you whatever messages to others in their page so that they see them. Or, you can do the @ and then their name on the forums and it will show up on their page....just a quirk of the site.

    Cheers @roddy. I actually grew up in Strathaven, so even closer I guess πŸ˜€. I've no idea what I'm going to produce songwise - we'll see what comes out. Which is pretty "exciting" in it's on way.
    Looking forward to hearing yours too - and everyone else's. Seems to be a fair bit of variety among FAWMers, which is perfect.

  • @roddy  Jan 2018

    Hi, good to see you here. Didn't realise you were from Glasgow (I'm originally from East Kilbride but in Australia for a while.). Looking forward to hearing your music.
