Clio Em 4


Canada   Feb 2015  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Lana Del Rey Leonard Cohen Bjรถrk Simon & Garfunkel Fever Ray Yann Tiersen Bob Dylan Dolly Parton Adele Beyonce Bach Edith Piaf Stevie Nicks

In 2015, I wrote Gravity Wing.
This year I release the final novel and album (have a look at my Indiegogo site: it's all very nifty, I promise!)

I'll be doing something different for FAWM 2017. It's actually a Gravity Wing tie-in. Listen for New Canada Engines . . .

    Stumbled across this recently - reminded me of your FAWM brief:

  • @electrocelte Mar 5

    The tuba players are always astounded. ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽท

  • @electrocelte Feb 28

    Most graduates in any University music program can pay the upgrade price for lessons from me, whereas I promise to call 911 and help keep them safe after they try and play for 1 minute on the pipes. Instead of point and laugh. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @electrocelte Feb 28

    Cute. It actually takes the better part of 1-2 years before you can really even begin to start playing a real set of pipes... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ

  • @electrocelte Feb 28

    Epic AND badass!! Wow, looks like I hit it out of the park!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @fineexcuses Feb 21

    Ello there, thanks for the comment. The drums are actually just samples I snipped out of the Amen break and played around with on my sequencer, rather than a synth. I wish I had some recommendations, but I don't to use drum synths much. Sorry that's not a tremendous amount of help!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 20

    Rather low, as it turns out. B below bass clef but for musical purposes, I usually stop at the D. ( might have been a rhetorical question but you asked!) The Road is so Long was a fun chance to play with my lower vocal range.

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 19

    Thank you sooo much for the awesome comment on 'Loser Lover'. You could tell I was just having too much fun singing that one right? Thanks for the compliment on my voice too. Cheers girl! x

  • @kenjku  Feb 19

    Thank you so much for the kind words on Seconds. Glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can totally hear the cafe sound now that you mentioned it haha. So you used to live in the city?

  • @electrocelte Feb 18

    Cheers Clio! It was a fun and interesting project for a day off!

  • @cloudboy  Feb 2017

    Thanks, Clio! Episode One was a beast to create. We're happy with the result though. Learned a bunch. Thanks for the enthusiasm. Episode Two is up...

  • @ferry0123 Feb 2017

    Hey thanks! Yes, 5/4 it is ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @electrocelte Feb 2017

    Thanks Clio... "KISS" method whenever possible!! Keep It Simple... (Stupid) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @electrocelte Feb 2017

    That's one of my Irish whistles, Clio... I love the sound as well, but have to admit it is not my "main" instrument... I like to dabble with it...

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    This alphabet project is intended for my kids and nieces/nephews. As you can tell, I'm having a ridiculous amount of fun making it. I try to be a great dad... I fail a lot, but I try. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @jamesstaubes  Feb 2017

    I'm so glad you liked, "Cross Country Friends." Thanks so much for your comments. I am definitely coming back to that one. ๐Ÿ˜€ And yes, I loved your idea for a female vocal doubling on the chorus. I will do that.

  • @williamjames Feb 2017

    Kids have insight alright ๐Ÿ˜€ I know of the pop filter issue... but I'm really pressed for time this FAWM so most of my recordings will be of appalling quality ๐Ÿ˜ž But this is way too fun to just hold up songs until a chance to properly record them ๐Ÿ˜

  • @beat  Feb 2017

    mail just went off... have good evening.

  • @alphanerg Feb 2017

    Thank you for your short but really amazing comment on "Do Androids Dream of Electric Beeps"! It made my day, or night in this case. Thank you!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    Well, I have 4 songs in the hopper, so I guess I'm kinda up to 14/15 right now but I have to record some of them yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just like working quickly -- FAWM as sketchpad -- and so people get to see me at my raw form here. I have no doubt that some of this year's pieces are keepers, which makes me hugely happy.

  • @beat  Feb 2017

    am doing fine clio, thx for askin'. let's meet for coffee, now that we are 4 in th city who are faming... cheers

  • @benschiem  Feb 2017

    Thank you for your comment @clioem that is the feeling I had too. Its still a weird city with a warm heart. @beat introduced me to your site, I love that you are into science fiction! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @notenkraker Feb 2017

    Can totally relate to the feeling @clioem, no judgement to be found from my side, love your work, keep it coming!

  • @kenficara  Feb 2017

    "Hidden Figures" is a good film, but it's a better book. The author's father worked at Langley and she started asking questions about his stories, and eventually got to meet the women at the center of the story. It's a longer and richer story.

  • @scubed  Feb 2017

    Thank you so much for your kind words about "I Dream of Green Hills"! And I'm so glad to see you're up and running now. Have a wonderful FAWM!

  • @apertome  Feb 2017

    I hear that, I'm sick so not off to the best start, we'll get some momentum I hope!

  • @electrocelte Feb 2017

    Speaking of great pipes, hello Clio!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @apertome  Feb 2017

    Glad you're back this year! Look forward t o hearing what you come up with this time around.

  • @popmythology  Feb 2017

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2017

    Goodness me, I haven't said "hello" on you soundboard yet? How embarrassing. I blame fb. Well, it need to blame some body/thing, right?

  • @chariotbaldwin  Jan 2017

    Good to see you here again!

  • @petemurphy  Jan 2017

    Hello! I hope you have a great time.
    I have returned, but this is going to be a very stripped down FAWM for me, compared to normal.
    I hope you're well ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tawny249  Jan 2017

    Yay! Hi there! Are you familiar with filk at all, if you're into sci-fi/fantasy music? If not, google it. It can be a beautiful thing. <3 Looking forward to seeing what you cook up, too.

  • @beat  Jan 2017

    Hi Clio, nice reading you.
    I'll hang around and see what I can do...

  • @mdavisto Jan 2017

    Hey @clioem, sorry, no, I haven't worked in advertising since the late 1990s - I am totally pre-internet in that regard. I work primarily in corporate print media. I guess the polite description would be "mercenary", but there are others.

  • @scubed  Jan 2017

    Howdy! Looking forward to hearing your FAWM 2017 music!

  • @popmythology  Jan 2017

    Hey hey to you too! ๐Ÿ˜€
