Fifth year fawming!
I play violin, guitar, piano, and ukulele, but singing is my favorite. I record in my closet. (This may change as @natrin and I turn my office into a working studio this month holy crap!!) I have a dog whom I love very very very much. I will probably sing about her. I'm really freakin excited to write music and listen to music and get all sorts of inspired by you awesome/crazy people.
I also just married @natrin in September and I'm all gross and excited about it. We sometimes write songs over at @honeybadgerfolk.
Goals for FAWM 2016:
1. Get to 14 without scrambling to write 5 songs on the last day of February.
2. Violin collab with @sajoli86!
3. Create some kind of digital composition.
4. Keep up with basic hygiene.
"Quit the bitching on your blog
And stop pretending art is hard
Just limit yourself to three chords
And do not practice daily
You'll minimize some stranger's sadness
With a piece of wood and plastic
Holy fuck, it's so fantastic, playing ukulele!"
Happy to have helped nudge you in an artistic direction, Erin! You make beautiful music. We're all better off for more of it.
Thanks for the feedback on "She Takes No Prisoners" - I'm glad you enjoyed it.
