Artist Bio

Influences:   General life. IDK grocery stores? The Magnetic Fields. Jonathan Richman. Liz Phair. Loudon Wainwright III. The Beatles. Teenage Fanclub. Cat Stevens. Mitski. Sonic Death/Love Eagle. Lucinda Williams. Guided By Voices.

Just trying to write some good/goofy pop songs.

Mostly interested in the lyrics, but hopefully I can find some cool melodies this year. Maybe get out of 4/4 time??? Pshh, like that's gonna happen anytime soon.

Usually record snippets in the voice memos app on my phone then work em into something.

    Thanks for turning me on to Terry Allen! He's right up my alley. I think I'm gonna have "I'ma panhandlin', Man handlin', Post holin', High rollin', Dust Bowlin' Daddy" stuck in my head. Have you ever listened to Norm MacDonald's Tex Hooper skit? It's hilarious, and your "Naked In a Deer Stand" song made it pop into my head.

    Hahaha! One of my favorite comments ever, "Your singing is like a vodka Redbull or something - boozy and strangely hyper"

    Can't wait to hear what you come up with! Your clever/funny lyrics were a highlight of last FAWM
