Artist Bio

Influences:   I enjoy all kinds of music, but here are a couple of favorites: John Prine, Bob Dylan, Tom Russell, Katy Moffatt, Tom Waits, R.E.M., 10,000 Maniacs, Billy Bragg, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen.

Get in touch FAWMers who want to collaborate! πŸ˜€ I'm mainly a lyricist, but I don't shy away from a bit of composition either.

Dear potential collaborators! Collaborations are VERY welcome. If you want to post, share or perform the song outside of FAWM, please ask first. Mechanical and other applicable rights will be an equal split between us, i.e. 50/50 where two people are involved. Vocalists, instrumentalists, mixing engineers, etc. may negotiate performance rights if applicable. Now, let's have some fun together! πŸ˜€

If you're interested, this is how I cheat/work:
- BiB or Magix for generating instrument tracks, combined with some playing of my own if I've got the time or ideas (although I can't really play anything).
- CoolEdit Pro 2.1 for chopping, editing, effects and mixing.
- Vocals mostly recorded on my PC mic, although I've got a nice Shure Beta 58a in my home studio.
- Vocal tweaking in Melodyne.
- Instruments i have access to in my home studio: Electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass, harmonicas, vibraslap and various percussion instruments, accordion, Irish flute, ukulele, keyboards (regular and midi), and probably a couple more.

    Thanks for the comment! I’m surprised you’ve heard of a psaltery / kantele by any name, really… they’re pretty unusual. I don’t use it as much as I’d like during FAWM, since it’s a little tricky to record, but maybe I could play on one of your songs next year.

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 9

    Thank you so much for your warm comment on Smelling Roses in My Dream. Kristi created very beautiful lyric. Here is our demo with beautiful vocals by Dawn:

  • @jamkar  Mar 8

    Hey thanks for commenting on my collab with Izaak! I will come back to listen here as well.

  • @alamous Mar 1

    Your vocal melody on the Champagne Battle's kept playing in my head for a whole straight day now πŸ˜€ Thanks again!

  • @tootoobee  Feb 28

    Hi Morten, just posted the song, it's quite late already and I have to work tomorrow. Was a challenge for me and I wished I could have done some things better... Thanks a lot for the lyrics!

  • @downfallroad  Feb 28

    Thanks! Eventually I'd love to re-record San Diego with a full backing track and MORE COWBELL 😁

  • @alamous Feb 28

    And now It's public again. That indeed does smell like a bug or at least a feature that would need some looking in to..

  • @alamous Feb 28

    I changed the link in to the one with properly timed vocals πŸ˜€ Go check it out when you've got the time.

  • @alamous Feb 27

    http://fawm.org/songs/75512/ Hey let me know If you wanna add anything to the description! I tried to figure out some harmony vocals but I came up with nothing that was really complimentary for the lead vocals, which are fabulous IMHO. You've got a really nice tone in your voice!

  • @tootoobee  Feb 26

    Hi, I'm still working on the collab. Finished most of the music but am not happy with my singing yet. But I have tomorrow and Tu off, that should give me enough time to finish.

  • @alamous Feb 26

    I just emailed you πŸ˜€

  • @alamous Feb 26

    You should definately give it a go!

  • @mrjoshuamclean Feb 20

    Hey - really looking forward to the collaboration. What's the best way to get in touch?

  • @complexissimple Feb 15

    Let me get back to you about the collab after I've finished my Morph, Exquisite Corpse, and Auntie Sin songs? It's my turn on all three.

  • @mom23gals  Feb 15

    Thanks for letting me collaborate on You Do Best What You Do Most! Really loved working with you! πŸ˜€

  • @mctown Feb 13

    good

  • @metalfoot  Feb 13

    Thanks again for your wonderful lyrics. πŸ˜€ I appreciated the chance to work with you and I wish you a great rest of FAWM!

  • @kc5 Feb 13

    Oh my gosh, Bithprod--your lyrics on Field of Dreams with Metalfoot's passionate voice just about made me cry--pretty close....

  • @marthie Feb 13

    thank you for your feedback on "Heaven"

  • @mom23gals  Feb 13

    I took a stab at You Do Best What You Do Most, in a country style. Just a rhythm track with voice. LMK if you want to give it a listen. And how to get it to you! πŸ˜€

  • @aprilm Feb 12

    Thanks for commenting on What We Love. It was a fun collaboration and I am so glad I was able to put Kristi's lyrics to music - we collaborated on another song too, which is a blues song Money Man. She writes some great song lyrics!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 9

    Hey! Thanks a lot for your lovely comment!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 7

    Tapping of toes is a completely acceptable alternative!! Thanks so much for listening to "I Will" and leaving that nice comment. Appreciate it!

  • @caseewilson  Feb 7

    Also, you're on 12 already???? Wow!

  • @caseewilson  Feb 7

    Hi @bithprod! Thank you for your kind words on Dreaming! I think that given I never even noticed that until you pointed out and given it's such a tiny part, I doubt I'll change it. It wasn't a conscious borrow and if Transvision Vamp and the Bangles both have it, it's clearly a good little progression and they won't mind πŸ˜€

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 7

    Thanks for your kind comments on "So Glad You Are Here." Tough on both sides of the equation... not sure why I'm getting pushed away... but that makes it even harder. Take care.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 3

    Feel free to email me with any lyrics etc. My email's on the profile.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 3

    Maybe we could do the week#1 challenge, "Dreams" together? remembering that my kids are floating around when I do most of my recording so we have to keep things PG!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 3

    Well, I don't mind singing -- I noticed from your post on the forum you don't want to sing-- so I guess we can have some fun with this. πŸ˜€ I will be doing my alphabet project pretty much lone-wolf, I think. So, since I work better off existing lyrics, and in the random collab thread you signed up as a lyricist.... do you want me just to grab one of your existing lyrics and start working on it?

  • @popmythology  Feb 2

    Thanks for the comment on "Alternative Facts," Morten! I see you're already six songs in, holy cow! *thumbs up*

  • @jnadon Feb 2

    Happy FAWM! Hope this year is a great one for you!

  • @stuartbenbow  Feb 2

    Thanks for your comment on my song. I usually give things a dark twist, too. Thought I'd keep one sweet for a change. πŸ˜€

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 1

    Hey, there! Happy to see you again this FAWM and look at you!! Five songs already??? WTH??! LOL You're on fire on day one! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

  • @brrrse  Feb 1

    Thanks for the kind words on I'm not scared. As I told him: Thanks for the feedback on I'm not scared - The mix is my quicky slap together. I use a program called Levelator - it levels everything, and in doing that it does fade certain frequencies in and out...but it's my quick and dirty make it all sound okay. That was done with one vocal take and me moving around the mic for dynamics since I'm still learning automation and I"m not really trying too hard with the mixing right now. I'm still a baby with all this...believe it or not πŸ˜€

  • @bhaile  Feb 1

    Hi! Yes:) I will get to work on music! if there's anything else you want me to think about while I'm working on it, my email address is brandihaile@icloud.com.

  • @krayzie003  Jan 30

    I look forward to checking out your lyrics and seeing if there is anything w can colab. on. Happy FAWMing!
