Artist Bio

Influences:   Influences is the wrong word because it somehow implies, to me anyway, that I aspire to be like them. In my dreams! But I'm especially inspired by the lyrics of Dylan, Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Adam Duritz, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Sarah McLachlan, and Natalie Merchant

Master bombaster. Sire of subtlety. Real name: Doug Haberman. At your service. Amateur lyric writer for about 3 years. I don't write music. Focus on storytelling and prosody. Love rhyme but it's less important than message and meter. This is my first FAWM.

    Doug,

    re "I like this more with every listen, Neil! And I liked it to begin with." I really like it too. Its a got a gospelly/country meet U2 vibe and it keeps on going round my head. Will do a decent version when I get home and send it over. Got a riff for no strings attached but gonna wait till i get my electric in hand and a proper drums going. ๐Ÿ˜€ neil

    Hahaha, I am not putting out any kind of FAWM album, but I will keep our song up on my Soundcloud in your honor.

    Hey Doug
    First off welcome to your first FAWM! I hope it's been an amazing experience for you and that you keep coming back. We're an amazing Community really a family at the end of the day and we all look forward to gathering every year. I wanted to thank you for dropping by and enjoying my song Follow Me. There's so much music to listen to out there so I appreciate it when people do drop by and take a listen. Cheers and keep writing your amazing lyrics ๐Ÿ˜ฎ)

    Thank you so much for your very kind compliment on "Jaguar". It means so much to me that you like this song this much. Once the craziness of this month is over I will be recording a proper version of the song.

    On a side note, I will be working on what you send me this weekend. I write my FAWM stuff predominately on my ukulele but really want to sit with my guitar to work on it.

  • @wacha 4 days

    I just emailed you, I am totally up for a collaboration.

    Thanks for listening to "Love Seeks", glad you liked it.

    Thank you for your comment on "My Stache" ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @rbmarty000 5 days

    Hi.. again.. this is a scratch track with mumbles where the words should be.. all the chords are the same and so far no bridge etc..
    Keep in mind the verses and the chorus overlap in harmony at the end.. so the words should blend too..

    Hey Doug.. If you send me your email.. I can add you to the collab link on songspace so you can add comments etc instead of going back and forth on this site..
    rbmartincomposer@gmail.com

    here is the chorus part I was working on.. and you can hear it really wants to go to the next verse.. which is great..

    Yes busy this evening.. can work with what you think works...
    I also had an idea of the girl being a lady of the evening coming to make him happy once in a while.. but he falls for her as she is the only one that will touch him.. weird idea I guess..

  • @rbmarty000 2 weeks

    OK...got your name... It's my first FAWM.ORG but I can write pretty quickly.. My voice is just passable though. Unlike many who write lyrics only, you keep pretty close to consistent meter and so it is easier to put a melody to it.
    For those wondering why their lyrics have not been picked up by a melody writer.. most often it is because they don't write it in terms of it being repetitive verse over verse.

  • @rbmarty000 2 weeks

    So if you approve I will add your name as a courier. Email me your name if you want.

  • @rbmarty000 2 weeks

    I put music to your song.. for your approval..

    Have a great Fawm

    BTW I use mumble tracks as placeholders for lyrics so one just replaces the gibberish with meaning.:)

    Hi.. I have a simple AAA song that could fit your style... if you are interested. I see it as an Irish or Scottish folk ballad...
    I use Songspace.com for collars
