Artist Bio

Influences:   I guess I am a prog rock boy at heart, not that I write prog rock. I have an eclectic music collection that I listen to and influences ooze from there.

Excited about FAWM this year, but, also quite apprehensive as my work schedule is quite punishing at present; eating into a lot of personal time...Anyway, I hope to gain energy to complete the challenge by listening to the many wonderful songs that will be published by other FAWMers.

23-Feb-18 Update: Ducked off work early) all approved) as I have to work at the weekend, so I got to work on 3 tracks that were in progress...Now I just need to catch up with all that others have been posting and comments they have made...

20-Feb-18 Update: Got a respite from some work and other commitments to put together some more tracks in the last few days. I have a few more in different stages. But it meant I took a break from listening and commenting to other FAWMers' songs....I see since I last listened, there have been many songs posted I want to go and listen I will get there...I doknow there are some FAWMers' whose work on FAWM is so good it amazes me that their music is not on every radio instead of what is usually played...but then I know why and it is nothing to do with the quality of their work/art....Anyway, rant over and back to the day job...

Thank you to everyone that stops by and listens/comments. I have read the comments and all are great - I will come back to each of you.

    Thanks for your comments on "Runnin' Out of Time"! When I started with the surf beat I didn't know it was going to go in a different direction, but I'm really happy with it.

    Thanks for the comment, and keep up the good work !

  • @ransu Feb 2018

    Thanks for constructive comments! Hah, the "computer music is not real music" part of my song description was sarcasm. Should have put an emoji of some sort after the description for the song. šŸ˜‰

    Hey thanks Simon. Have a good FAWM. I hope that new guitar gets put to good use.

    Sure, sounds good šŸ˜€ Yeah, we would need a singer. Went to your SoundCloud page.. Nice variety of styles. (And I have a lyric from 2016 called Hallowed Ground lol - Was there a FAWM or 50/90 skirmish named that? lol)

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2018

    Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
