Influences: My music is a combo of new age, jazz, impressionism, and maybe even a bit of pop.
I'm a software engineer who plays piano in my free time (i.e. when I should be sleeping).
I've written 5 albums so far, which you can listen to at the links below:
1. Places in the Grove (2014)
2. Next Time For Sure (FAWM 2015)
3. Paw (2015)
4. I Just Want to Graduate (FAWM 2016)
5. Weights (FAWM 2017)
I usually try to leave a comment for everyone who takes the time to listen to my music, but if I don't get around to it for some reason, THANK YOU anyway for stopping by. 😀
So far I've only done solo piano music, but this FAWM I've decided to take a risk and add some vocals. It'll be challenging since I've never written lyrics before, and my voice is mostly untrained, but I've been singing along to my songs privately for a while now, so I figured I might as well record some of it!
Yo if you are interested send me the files for that track (Deranged) and i will add the beat to the whole thing and post it as a collaboration. Or, if you want I can send you the project file I used to make that and you can do what you want with it, it is in LMMS which is open source.
Check your email.
Thanks for your thoughts on Make A Fortune. I am especially chuffed that you found my playing and choice of chords nice. For years. I’ve been a synthesist masquerading asa keyboardist. But I have gotten serious about playing piano over the last 1.5 years and am glad that it shows. Re: sound - i’m recording into a professional IPad DAW with an iconnectivity Audio4+ interface and it gives a nice sound to my piano and synths.
Thanks for your comment on 'stay' Elliot. I don't usually sing so really appreciate the kinds worlds about the vocals working with the music. Keep going with your stuff it's sounding great!
Ben Folds did a song with Weird Al?!? The mind boggles! Ha!
Thank you for your kind words about Springtime. I'm happy with that song.
I'll email you the sheet music 😀 It's a rough sketch I used when recording but the chords and notes are all there
Haha you'll get used to it, but it can always get better that's the fun.
Hi, Thanks for the nice comment on my first song "After You Bleed". I am still checking your page every once in a while to see I haven't missed your first song. Looking forward and happy Fawm!
Hi Elliot! Hope to see you around this year.
