Artist Bio

Influences:   AliceInChains DaysOfTheNew @Driftwood1 @keithbarrette @kweast23

This is my third year. FAWM is a great excuse to lock myself in a room and get some of these songs recorded.

I mostly compose dark grungy acoustic-rock but this seems like a good place to experiment.
Not sure how much I'll be participating this year as I'm pretty burnt out after spending all of 2017 recording our new album "The Legend Of Johnny Black"

I am looking for production tips and any feedback good/bad you have.
Thanks for listening!

    Thank you very much for the comment on "I'm Still Standing" and for continued support throughout FAWM. The atmosphere on here has been amazing, and I had such a blast writing music.

    Thanks for your nice comments! I will definitely go back and add some reverb to the vocals. I started tweaking some of those settings around track 8 or so, so the earlier songs definitely sound a bit dry. (Mixing is harder than I thought!) Also, I'm thrilled about the comparison to Linkin Park. They've been a huge influence on my style.

    Thank you so much for the compliments and the comment on "Invincible". Music is something I'd like to do for a living, and I've had a few projects but not at all enough to sustain myself yet. Studying music production right now, and I'd like to actually release some songs this year.

    Thank you for the comment on "When The T-Rex Cries"! It's the only song out of my FAWM tracks I didn't play guitar on myself, but I did produce and set the tones. Solos like that are above my ability. Thank you for the compliments!

    Hey, thank you for listening!

  • @ahasuerus Feb 2018

    Thanks for taking the time to comment on my trash hahaha. Great vocals dude and guitarwork. Props!

  • @tseaver  Feb 2018

    Hah, I was thinking about the straight-ahead acoustic guitars, and missed the effect on your vocal.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 2018

    My pleasure @downfallroad. My personal favorite was Dosage. Loved that album. So many good songs.

    Hi thanks for your kind comment. The acoustic is recorded in stereo via a pair of pencil condensers (SE Electronics SE5s) into my Focusrite Scarlett soundcard.
    The electric is through the DI outlet on my Blackstar HT5 practise amp.
