Influences: beautiful voices, often in harmony, guitars, pianos, banjos, fiddles, and mandolins. basses too. things that can tell new stories with old tools.
I think I posted 4 songs last year. I'll be happy to do the same again!
Oops, forgot to re-set the song as collab. Or maybe you got too busy with other things?
Look forward to hearing your take on it!
Hiya. Thanks so much for leaving so many comments. That's very generous of you. And good luck with Rags and Moose!
For "Hive Mind" I just had a strong beat in mind, an underlying almost cheer-like beat for the chorus, but the verses with one word could be a lot more flowing. "Escape velocity" could take any turn or added twists, sound effects, even. That's what was in my head as I wrote. Wanna give it a go?
Thanks for you very kind words on my songs! Im so glad you like them. The mortal song almost went the Jesus route after that first verse popped into my head but thought better of it! The Horror at that the news was a fun song but yes also a statement song. A bit sneaky on my part! I agree on the Silent Stones song, I wanted a sorta of druid celtic feel, not sure if I got that or not. Yeah, it's sorta of a protest song in a veiled sort of way in the chorus. I may need my therapist to look at my lyrics and analyze me!
Thank you BJ for taking the time to listen to my music. I appreciate all of your feedback and your points of view. Yes we all have a lot of catching up to do listening to our fellow Fawmsters. There's so much great music out there I'm looking forward to hearing it. Here's to "Listening March"
Thanks for the online feedback Brian! "Lonely and defiant" for Your Pity Heart is right-on. I love thinking about songs that are defiant. 😀 Hoping to write a few more if that's what emerges this month. See you around town.....
Glad to see you made it on the board. Thanks for all the great comments.
In Always You, there isn't really a perspective change. I chose my pronouns very carefully throughout. The "you" I am singing to is just not what might be expected at first.
Hey! Welcome back to FAWM. Thanks for the listens / comments. Unfortunately there won’t be any banjo tunes this year as my banjo is currently 600 miles away. But that means you’ll have to pluck your banjo extra hard for the both us!
