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.

    Hey man, my apologies but I haven't logged on in a while. If you're still looking for someone, I'd definitely be willing to help out. Cheers.

  • @keithcuts Feb 27

    Hi Bith. Lol fair. Yeah my style is my style.
    I did the angry thing in my younger days but it wasn’t exactly me.
    Best of luck!

  • @cloudboy  Feb 26

    I will definitely try to get a dance party video of "To the Moon and Back". Thanks for listening! I'll be back.

  • @berni1954  Feb 26

    Thanks for giving "Love in the Twilight Years" a spin.
    And yes, it is only the young who think that love is reserved solely for them - the old know better 😉

  • @roelvanveldt Feb 25

    Hey Morten! The power ballad "Dreams of Dawn" is finally ready. 😀 I changed a wording here and there following the advice of a friend who studied English. Do you prefer to make me your collab partner for that song yourself, of do you want me to create a new song for it?

  • @jcooper  Feb 24

    Hi. I have done a piano and strings version of "I Would Have" here if you would like to have a listen and compare to the original. Thanks for the advice!

  • @katey Feb 24

    Thanks for feedback. Glad you like it.

  • @jcooper  Feb 24

    Hi! Thanks for you comments on “I would have”. I will try that! Thanks

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 24

    Tack! Jag blev jätteglad över din fina kommentar .

  • @aprilm  Feb 22

    Thanks for checking out My Shadow! I'll come back to take a listen, just getting home from work

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    Thank's for backing track.
    I will work with it and add vocals!

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    Hi....do you have it on 2 tracks? If so, if you sens as a wav ( using we transfer, a free service) I can do a higher harmony over yours. Or I can use the music track and sing 2 parts. It is really quite lovely

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    Hi...I think it is wonderful. How do you want to handle...Do you want to proceed as a demo with you doing vocals and I will explain that you were my voice in the liner notes?
    I think it is great that you so quickly made lovely music of this. Lemmee know

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    Yes...shone
    Good catch!

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    I guess if you could somehow be a narrator it would work.
    Or....you could create the music and I could sing it

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    Thank you for commenting on Crazy Danny song
    You said you heard a melody.
    Wanna give it a go?

  • @tunecat  Feb 21

    Looking forward to our random collab. Will try to get something to you tonight .. on the emails you sent.

  • @taracraig  Feb 20

    Haha! Not made in a lab, at least not that I’m aware off. I totally consider the comparison a complement. While I enjoy both of those artists I haven’t listened to either with any regularity so I don’t consider them influences. They are definitely among my, “sounds like” list however. Thanks for letting me write music for that song. It was truly a pleasure!!

  • @taracraig  Feb 20

    Posted, eek!

  • @taracraig  Feb 20

    That works!

  • @taracraig  Feb 20

    Demos is ready for "Your Place Among Stars" !!!!

  • @spinhead  Feb 19

    Delighted to hear Sir Perry's misadventures gave pleasure.

  • @mdavisto  Feb 19

    It was way, way ahead of its time. I used to flip between it and SoundForge, because they both had things they did well. I remember using CoolEdit Pro to generate delay FX which I'd then import back into my DAW (Cakewalk at the time). It was a powerhouse. Apparently it still is. Nice, man. Thanks for the nostalgia.

  • @mdavisto  Feb 19

    CoolEdit? Cool fucking EDIT?

    That thing was my jam in the 1990s. What are you even running it on?

  • @tjeff  Feb 14

    You can use ozrosongs@gmail.com

  • @tjeff  Feb 14

    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  Feb 13

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

  • @pambowen1 Feb 12

    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  Feb 11

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

  • @taracraig  Feb 10

    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 Feb 10

    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 Feb 9

    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  Feb 9

    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  Feb 9

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

  • @lieke Feb 9

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

  • @tiller2  Feb 9

    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.

  • @popmythology  Feb 7

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

  • @alxolex Feb 7

    Thanks for the welcome (couple of days later) 😀

  • @wlschule Feb 5

    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 Feb 5

  • @wlschule Feb 5

    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 Feb 4

    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  Feb 3

    Sure it's my pleasure, and thank you.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 1

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

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 1

    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 ◉‿◉

  • @lake  Feb 1

    Thank you!

  • @inciteful  Feb 1

    Welcome back! Have a great FAWM

  • @bhaile  Feb 1

    Hi! Glad to see you’re back 😀

  • @nuj4x Jan 31

    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 Jan 31

    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  Jan 30

    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!

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Jan 30

    Hey Morten! Welcome back to the fray!

  • @tamsnumber4 Jan 28

    Happy FAWMing!

  • @jamkar  Jan 24

    Howdy Morten! Happy FAWM!

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 15

    Hey, Morten! Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018! Always a nice treat hearing your work!
