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! 😀 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! 😀

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.

    Thx for your msg. I usually work directly from a lyric, but also welcome any other thoughts regarding style, etc. Looking forward to it!

  • @taracraig  5 days

    Sorry for the delay but do not dismay. Things are coming along nicely for our collab.

  • @pambowen1 6 days

    Ha-ha! Yes, I thought about making that joke, but refrained. Thanks for reading the lyric and taking time to comment in detail. I appreciate it!

  • @writeandwrong  1 week

    Thanks for your kind comments on "I Want to Go to Mars." I have my moments where I'm kinda "out there." haha 😝

  • @taracraig  1 week

    would like to collaborate on, "You're Place Among the Stars". I'm traveling tomorrow so won't be able to get to it until at least Sunday. Let me know!

  • @tsunamidaily 1 week

    i am sorry about pairing you with a redundant collab mate. i will remedy that this round, i swear. thank you for letting me know.

  • @nuj4x 1 week

    Yes! I didn’t forget, just been covered up! It’s almost done, I’ll email it today or tomorrow! Monday by the latest but probably later today or tomorrow!

  • @wacha  1 week

    Thank you for your kind words on "Start Again". I might end up doing a more produced version with similar to this and then another with some more instrumentation to it.

  • @tiller2  1 week

    Okay, I'll suggest that they change us. I hope you get another great collab. Best regards--Andrew

  • @lieke 1 week

    Thank you so much for your comment on Nobody won, and just between you and me... I'm a great liar!

  • @tiller2  1 week

    Hi Morten, we've been paired in the random collab Round 3, but I think I disappointed you in an attempted collab a couple of years ago (never finished). I propose that if you affirmatively would like to try again, let's do so. But if you have any doubts or qualms, let's skip this opportunity, with no bad feelings. You're a good songwriter and compatibility is a fickle thing. Cheers.

    Helloooo, Morten! Just wanted to say "hi"! Happy FAWMing!

    Thanks for the welcome (couple of days later) 😀

  • @wlschule 1 week

    Not necessary but that's how I tend to write for myself and I'm def open to breaking my mold and try new things

  • @wlschule 1 week

    Hey there, if you have any lyrics that you have started I would not mind taking a stab at it and see what I think. If not, a melody also works. I am up for anything.

  • @andybalham 2 weeks

    Hi. Would you mind at all if I recorded a version of 'Don’t Let the Bastards Grind You Down'? I have an idea for it.

  • @haim  2 weeks

    Sure it's my pleasure, and thank you.

  • @engebretsen  2 weeks

    Hei igjen. Skal følge litt med på tekstene dine... Ha en fin Fawm i år og lykke til.

  • @writeandwrong  2 weeks

    Thank you for your kind comments on "Body and Ghost." He's fighting with his own ghost and learning to deal and accept both, and in the end, he realizes that it's easier accepting his body and ghost as they are and is able to move on in life. This is kinda why I was wondering whether I needed another verse as I wasn't sure if that would be clear, so thank you, I appreciate your comments ◉‿◉

    Welcome back! Have a great FAWM

  • @bhaile  2 weeks

    Hi! Glad to see you’re back 😀

  • @nuj4x 2 weeks

    I'm sure some awesome singer on FAWM would come forward and offer us vocals, if not...I have a cabinet of vocalists I can ask 😁 the ones that sing on my songs! 😁

  • @nuj4x 2 weeks

    I have yet to publish anything because I only started making music in September of 2017. I just woke up one day and decided I wanted to make music!

    Head over to my page again and look at my influences and I’ll make a beat and you could write lyrics to our beat and can you do vocals? Because if so, that would be epic!

  • @taracraig  2 weeks

    Hello! Good to see you here as always! I'm always up for a collab with you my friend. I love your lyrics! I totally agree about "Gasoline" and "Stuff Like That". I've incorporated both into my live set. "Stuff like that" will be on my next album whenever I finish it. I took a long hiatus from music due to some family stuff and am just now getting back in the groove. FAWM is the perfect place to dust things off and get started!
