Artist Bio

First and foremost I'm a husband and dad but also a multi-instrumentalist and singer. I work on my songwriting craft as others work on their house, their cars or whatnot, it's what I'll do when time allows it. As you can understand, I'm not the greatest around the house. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cheers for now,

  • @misterd Feb 18

    Thanks so much for listening and the insightful comments on my song 'grains of sound '. Cheers ๐Ÿ‘

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 17

    Indeed, exactly my thought. If Lightnin' can do it, so can I!

  • @ustaknow Feb 16

    -- fyi, eh, might be fun... we'll see ๐Ÿ˜€

    (I had an extra moment, pulled out a book and instead ripped this out, ad hoc... you play, I know you play, you said you play ๐Ÿ˜‰ hahahahahhh)

    Who knows if anyone has "extra" time... likely not.

  • @fonte  Feb 15

    Haha! We'd have to seriously increase our song per day ratio! I just played piano for 15 minutes - not sure if that helps but it was fun!

  • @fonte  Feb 15

    Thank you my friend! I'll count you as one of the imaginary audience at the gig ๐Ÿ˜‰ now, will we both manage a third track this month....?

  • @boostock Feb 15

    Ok, got it, I had to remove https completely. I hope it works now! Thanks for pointing it out U!

  • @ustaknow Feb 15

    FYI, your soundcloud link above is "broken".
    See if just this works?

  • @ustaknow Feb 14

    Hey, thank you!

    Yes, that was one of the 11 from my โ€œFishbowlโ€ work over at the other place in Dec, framing out drafts.

    I kinda write them to perform more than anything else.

    But since I need a track to remember it a year from now I do the best, fast demo I can. Kitchen-sink recordings I like to call them, and have even purchased... heck that last Jack White โ€œacousticโ€ album was all his studio doodles ๐Ÿ˜€ good stuff too, well, iffen u like JW ๐Ÿ˜€ hahhh...

    So, again, that you or anyone โ€œreallyโ€ likes it is good to know.

    I did it when not one did...! ๐Ÿ˜€ so, just love it... !

  • @kc5 Feb 13

    Hey, thanks for the comments, boostock. Hopefully Iโ€™ll get to the music part eventually, but though lyrics come somewhat easily, doing the music takes me considerable timeโ€”not as skilled in that arena as Iโ€™d like to be. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  • @ustaknow Feb 10

    Logic Pro X, -- I'll look into it.

    -- We sound like on the same page, -- make music, not more work? ๐Ÿ˜€ hahhh

    FYI, ... might find it interesting, don't think we dialogued the eng'g side, so ... ... :
    It may sound funny, but what I liked about Adobe Autidion then, ๐Ÿ˜€ 10 years ago, OMG! ... -- that daw, was for me in that is was the most like analogue mixing, very linear, very manual and went to tape/file. (Yes, it's what one knows I guess..., so no diff than the next guy.)

    The "new stuff", it makes "that", all of it yet another new hobby in itself... don't need/want one! ๐Ÿ˜€ hahhh...

    I use reverb (and love to fully control it; - slap-back; -
    compression; - Hz EQ/dB+-). What else is there? Get a MOOG then ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜

    Many times I just dup a section and shift it a few miliseconds one fully L, other fully R... vwah lah, "spacial relief", like sitting in a venue (if using headphones).
    -- I control it fully and get what I hear as a "rich" timbre (and can add "reverb" to that too, to get really hollow, etc.) For me, I know what "that" is; fast and cheap, the --xyz branded plugin ...dunno ๐Ÿ˜€ uNo ๐Ÿ˜€

    I say all that in case I get back about LP X -- again, thank you for the input-feedback.

  • @ustaknow Feb 10

    Thanks for that Pete, -- I am DL'g the Free version as I type this.

    I hope my i8 with 64GB is gonna last like my last Samsung. (Got nearly a decade out of that one ๐Ÿ˜€ hahaha.)

    Anyway, --do you have the "free" eval, or the $19 paid for version, and --is it worth it?
    -- Remember I was happy with voice recored enhanced on the Samsung... so, a little ambiance (compression and slap-back / reverb) like in your track is fine with me. Not seeking a garageband... that's there preloaded anyway (never bonded with GB, not sure why).

    -- The demo's I do, 1-voice/guitar are all done in audacity. The Reverb in it is fairly configurable, --pre-delay with 100% separation creates slap-back L/R, other stuff, real quick and easy. Kind of old school so to speak for a digital daw and for a bounce track.

    I've never heard anyone say, "hey, that production in demo is real krappe"... so, figure it's good for now. The only DAW I ever liked was Adobe Audition... --got tire of paying for upgrade 3 OS's back in Windows. Not to much I see yet with my Linux MINT (love my Mint...). So will live with Audacity for the OS stability trade off.

    -- UNLESS you have ideas for Linux DAW apps?

    Have a great weekend!

  • @martinswede Feb 8

    Thank you for your comment. Lookin forward to more songs from you.

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 8

    Thanks for listening and the encouraging response, man. Yeah, Harry was a proper original old dude. He needed some recognition.

  • @driftwood1  Feb 8

    Hey Peter, thanks for all the great comments. I don't know any actual finger patterns, just make em up as I go, so I don't know that it has a name. Glad you enjoyed!

  • @fonte  Feb 7

    Thank you for your kind comment on 'stay'. I will definitely come back to it after FAWM and work around the idea.

  • @fonte  Feb 7

    Just listened to your first song and was blown away! Can't wait to hear more you are amazing.

  • @ustaknow Feb 7

    Hey... by chance this got put together and is limited to invitation only, 4-5, will never be opened up... I'm guessing 10 max. Just now forming... if you are on FB, check it out?

  • @kc5 Feb 4

    You may be envious of my grasp on English, but Iโ€™m envious of your instrumental abilities. Thatโ€™s what holds up demos for me.โ€”Iโ€™m a bit rusty with even early guitar skills

  • @boostock Feb 4

    Thanks U! Appreciate your efforts and concern!!! I really do! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm in a lyrical slowdown right now, the reason probably because I've worked so hard for some time now to get better at it that once I started writing again I ran straight into a wall. Working on it though...hehe, it's all good! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ustaknow Feb 3

    Hey Pete, I'll give you a song so's you can participate if'n you need'n one? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Take one from Dec. and remix, throw some harp, take your last Sun-night skirmish... and write right rite ... but, no pressure.

    [Kidding buddy... just glad your around, --gud'nuff!]

  • @ustaknow Feb 3

    Hey S -- ๐Ÿ˜€ yes... I was feeling that too. Getting it to music, for me is that much harder too if get to close to "poetry" and sound narrative and all-hooks no fish ๐Ÿ˜ (You guys eat salt-fish up there right?) Anyway...

    Any technical suggestions, feel free to -mentor if so inclined. I know that's tricky online and know it can only be generally, --how that works. Just, say'in, just say'in...

    -- Glad lรถrdag, bror ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sumi Feb 2

    Hi.. a familiar face (though I'm a first timer here)! Looking forward to some good stuff from you ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ustaknow Feb 2

    I don't know, what I don't know, yah no? ๐Ÿ˜

  • @ustaknow Feb 2

    Hey Pete, she is who you think she is, I sent her over ๐Ÿ˜€ hahahahaa so funny we all are !!! I'm below your post over there, saying "hey... go say hi..." ๐Ÿ˜

  • @kc5 Feb 1

    Hi Pete. I am who you think I am (I think). Sunday club?

  • @kc5 Feb 1

    Hi! Good to see you here!
    Looking forward to your music!

  • @ustaknow Jan 31

    Hey buddy! I can't wait to hear what you've been doing.

    The music world, --it's very small at the top and bottom ... hahhhh, on which side are we? ๐Ÿ˜
