Artist Bio

My FAWM-scores so far:

2014: 9 songs finished
2015: 14 songs finished
2016: 3 songs finished

This year I'm going to try and write a concept album. Not really caring about the final track count, just aiming to tell the story from start to finish in whatever number of songs it requires.

    thanks for a great job on "hammer and nail"! i have had the flu the last couple of days, and have limited energy. a very appropriate setting and very well delivered. i'm glad we got paired randomly. that has worked out well for me this year.

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 20

    go ahead with hammer and nail! i do have changes for it, but i am more interested in hearing your take on it. that's the beauty of collaboration. i'm glad there was one you were interested in.

  • @tsunamidaily Feb 20

    hey there! we were paired for the random collab. take a look and see if any of my lyrics interest you, or give me n idea that you would like to explore. good meeting you

    I would like to thank you very much for your beautiful comment on "Getting off this train"! 😀

  • @piney  Feb 14

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment!

  • @spinhead  Feb 13

    I had so much fun making "Cat's Gotta Eat." My novels are literary noir, so I guess it's leaking over into my music. That's fine with me.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 13

    Hey! I would like to thank you very, very much for your that generous and thoughtful comment! I enjoyed reading it...

  • @crimulus  Feb 11

    Hey there -- thanks for the comments on "Traffic" 😀

    Your note about form and function totally makes sense, and I take it as a massive compliment. Thank you for telling me what you hear! I think it's a songwriter's dream.

  • @quork  Feb 11

    You have some SERIOUS song writing and performing chops, my friend. The four songs (so far) in your concept album hang together musically and thematically, while each being individual (and full of musical gem moments). On "32" I heard serious prog, but on the next songs you mixed it up. Kudos. I'll be following your FAWM progress with interest.

  • @emplate Feb 9

    Thank you so much for your in-depth comment on "Katarsis"! I'm glad the text provoked some thoughts and that you felt my choice to go with spoken word was correct. I definitely felt it was better expressed that way, but it was also a practical choice, as I'm not that good of a singer and I find coming up with vocal melodies to be quite difficult. I also felt that it was better with this song to stay in its most simple core, so I'm happy others think it was the right thing to do, as well!

  • @spunky4455 Feb 9

    Thanks a ton for all the compliments! I am pretty happy with this FAWM so far. Keep up your good work and have a great month!

  • @js6  Feb 7

    Kiitän ja kumarran!

  • @mosley  Feb 7

    Thanks for checking out my tune, glad you dig my vintage tone! 😸 I totally love your sound, and your album is coming along really great!

  • @ustaknow Feb 5

    Hey... great idea, --look forward to it.

    [I love the René Magritte icon... long ago and far away I was crazy for his work and Edward Hopper... -- great stuff, Light-feel, the paintings had sound 😀 , to me, when I studied them.]
