Sheffield UK   Feb 2016

Artist Bio

Influences:   I wanna say Anohni, City and Colour and Radiohead but I'm probably just come off sounding like a poor mans Taylor Swift aren't I. Dallas Green was the guy that imspired me to finally pick up a guitar after a life time of being non-musical. Sadly I've not applied myself enough to quite achieve his levels of guitar-prowess as yet!

Zomg I'm not a virgin anymore! Second year Fawm woooooop! Looking forward to discovering all new stuff and excited to throw my plectrum into the ring as inspiration hits. I'm not expecting 14 songs from myself cos I'm working waaaay too much in Feb so I will set the target of just beating my score last year, think I did 5!

Sad to say I've made no tangible improvement with my guitar playing or singing, honestly gonna schedule some lessons in soon cos it only annoys me when I can't play what I want to! Still happy to give it a go though.

Writing challenge I want to set myself is to write something entirely non-emotional. Like when people write about a story in the news or something instead of a personal viewpoint. No idea how that's done so will give it a pop.

Shout outs to my actual musical genius of a partner @adforperu, my guitar hero @degausser and swoony-vocal icon, @shortdan!

Bring on the February!
A Fawm win! Awesome. I still have another ten ideas I wanna put down but also really looking forward to a break and watching some movies! Thank you everyone for listening and making sweet sweet music 😀

    No need to be ashamed of your heritage. Belgium's a nice place!

  • @adforperu  7 weeks

    Anytime, sweetcheeks

  • @karlsburg25  7 weeks

    Thanks lovely . And the instrumental section was a complete random fluke . Lord knows what was going on there 😉

  • @shortdan  7 weeks

    Well, my plan is to keep writing beyond Feb this year - with a focus on things maybe we can use with the band (given that I'm contributing one from this FAWM - maybe!). I'll deffo try and use those lyrics first up. Can you tell what it's about? Haha!

  • @shortdan  7 weeks

    I'm thinking to try and reuse those lyrics on another track (outside of FAWM of course). Only ones I've written this FAWM that I actually like! Talking about the Hanley collab of course...

  • @shortdan  7 weeks

    That one's your favourite?! 😮 You nutter! Mind you, you do love a travel based song right?

  • @haim  7 weeks

    haha thanks.... yeah.... I'm going for 14. gonna record now a new song that I actually wrote at the beginning of fawm, and then try to upload a new one, in afford to get to 14 before the skirmish tonight. I have 5 hours in my country until 00:00 so I think I'm gonna make it....

  • @haim  7 weeks

    Congratulations on coming to 14!
    Thank you for your sweet comments on my songs...

  • @adforperu  7 weeks

    I should probably tell you this in real life, but I'm so, so proud that you're a FAWM winner. Fucking YES!

  • @shortdan  7 weeks

    Woohoo! 🙌🏻

  • @teapot 7 weeks

    Thanks for listening to Broken Julie! That's one of the sweetest comments I've probably ever had. Made me feel happy 😀

  • @degausser  7 weeks

    Ha! You want some for that FACE?

  • @degausser  8 weeks

    Well done on getting 13 songs

  • @theidleowl  8 weeks

    'Gregory, I'm Yours' may be being worked on...

  • @jbp123 8 weeks


  • @jbp123 8 weeks

    Haha yes!!! Give me a title and I'll collab you back 😁

  • @jbp123 8 weeks

    As if you've done 12! FFS. Well done! Will listen and comment over the course of the next couple of days.

  • @karlsburg25  8 weeks

    Stop snooping on your man's comments. I am trying to do this incognito!! 😉 Of course you know i am only saying those things to boost him as we both know he is clearly lacking in musical talent!! ahem xx

  • @degausser  Feb 22

    Erm... I counted 50... Not using that word again!

  • @degausser  Feb 22

    LOL did you actually count the amount of times I said Love? 😝
    Glad you like it though 😀

  • @thelowestbitter Feb 22

    Ah I feel the pain of living up to a much more musically proficient peer, my brother @gregthehero began playing instruments at 9 (I think?) and has been in loads of bands, and orchestras, and did a bloody music degree, and I have to try and compete with that having never touched an instrument until the age of 18. I keep thinking there's a point where I might catch up with him but almost a decade in it's showing no signs of happening.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 22

    OK first I made you and Adam dance in bed, now I made you and your cat mosh. You're really giving me an ego boost here. But please....don't stop..do continue.

  • @shortdan  Feb 20


  • @shortdan  Feb 20

    You are! 😝

  • @shortdan  Feb 20

    Well have no fear, the beeps shall return in whatever comes next - that was most definitely a one off!

  • @degausser  Feb 20

    Actually it's been a bit rainy.

  • @degausser  Feb 20

    Better check your privileges first

  • @degausser  Feb 20

    Thanks JMS. I'd like to hear ALL of your songs with the vocal removed... Oh, and the guitar too. Bahahaha. 😝
    Ah, I knew there was a reason for that. Everything does happen for a reason afterall!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 19

    To be fair, I started on bass when I was a pre-teen. Probably explains why it took me so long! 😂

  • @dragondreams  Feb 19

    Aww. Thank you! 😀
    Not magic really, just hours and hours of practise over many decades. But thank you again. I'm really glad I didn't frighten you with my grumpy old man looks! 😂

  • @yam655  Feb 19

    Congratulations on making it to the Century Club! 😀

  • @thelowestbitter Feb 18

    Thanks for the comments! My fingerpicking is actually absymal (Boo dyspraxia!) and I had to construct that song from chopped up parts of about 10 different takes because I can barely make it ten seconds without hitting a bum note. But fingerpicking does sound really nice so I'd definitely say to give it a go and if, like me, you struggle you can always cheat. 😀

  • @shortdan  Feb 18

    But I literally did just sing any old shite 😜

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 18

    OOooo....the "eye roll". I hate it when I go to a bar and some dude rolls his eyes at me. I get super sensitive and smack my arm with a fluffy hanky.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 18

    They're romantic, remember? Speaking of romantic, my toilet love song is up. Go comment on it. Do as your master says.

  • @degausser  Feb 15

    Ahh, OK

  • @degausser  Feb 15

    BOOM. What do I win? Your cornflake chocolate bar?

  • @degausser  Feb 12

    Oh I didn't realise that! I find that if you're writing and practicing a song in tandem then to suddenly separate it is very unnatural. We're all different though! 😀 I'm better at vocals when I thinking about them less but maybe you're better at them when you think about them more.. If ya know whadda mean?

  • @jonnyeureka33 Feb 11

    Thats like the sweetest thing anyone has ever said about my music. Thank you.

  • @teapot Feb 11

    Glad you're feeling better Julie 😀 I know, if I feel really down in the dumps- even just singing is always very therapeutic! So cool that you've been singing rocket, I've had your songs in my head too.

  • @teapot Feb 10

    I was going to attempt to be anonymous but ah well- it's so, so lovely to get your comments! And your guitar playing is wicked btw.

  • @shortdan  Feb 9

    Actually, I've written something on guitar tonight (music anyway - only written one verse). May record it on guitar as it's not too tough to play.... or I might rework it for keys 😜

  • @teapot Feb 9

    Aww, thank you for your very lovely comments Judypie! Looking forward to hearing more of your stuff 😀

  • @jvallius Feb 8

    Thanks for your comments!

  • @cblack  Feb 8

    Thanks for the comment. 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 8

    Thank you for your kindness and encouragement. Much appreciated.

  • @jbp123 Feb 7

    /morals/decency/respect is all yours. @shortdan won't have a song ready for weeks anyway 😝

  • @frenchcricket Feb 7

    Really? Damn him and his natural talents

  • @frenchcricket Feb 7

    I can't believe Ad won't teach you! Or is that too fraught with danger (like how Emma wouldn't let me teach her to drive)?

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 7

    Aw hellz yeah! If I can get couples to dance in bed then I'm doing SOMETHING right! Y'all have fun now y'hear? aaight.

  • @frenchcricket Feb 6

    Don't want to put this on your song page cos some people don't want constructive stuff there. FWIW I like your voice and would happily trade it for mine in a second!

    Have you had lessons or anything? I just mean for the basics - breath control, projection, etc. Nothing wrong with pitch - you hit notes better than I do. And like others have said you have a really great feel for rhythm.

    The other idea worth considering is overdubbing the vocals. Some people find it hard to get into the right vibe for this, but it does free you up to do different rhythms etc. Just a thought

  • @shortdan  Feb 6

    Ah, thanks JMS 😀 You're forgiven for visiting me for FIVE SECONDS!

  • @jbp123 Feb 5

    *googles 'hotbox' to make sure it's not something awful, if anything at all.

  • @jbp123 Feb 5

    You'll figure out harmonies in no/lots of time. You could always ask Mr Judypie for some help/tips - he's a harmony hotbox.

  • @hbusse Feb 5

    Thanks for listening to my first song The Battle and for the kind comments!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 4

    You're most welcome, and thank you too!
    Metre is just the accent and emphasis within your strumming pattern. You kept the same rhythm but changed the emphasis and it kicked the backing up a notch.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 4

    Punch Adam in the face. Do as your master says.

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Feb 4

    Thank you very much 😀

  • @haim  Feb 4

    It's my pleasure. Thanks for taking the time to listen to my song too. I will listen to your next songs as well, I liked you. And I think that you should try to write 14 songs! it is not that hard! I see you are doing a very good job until now. think about it.
    And yeah Santa Fe can be appropriate too there, This is why I thought about it.. I just know this place from Jon Bon Jovi song from a movie called "Young Guns".

  • @haim  Feb 4

    Hi. I liked your voice and tune, and songs. Good luck with the rest of your FAWM.

  • @richforperu Feb 4

    Hello! I am on here each year. Back in the day I even posted a song...

  • @degausser  Feb 3

    GLOL this is why you're so good at lyrics! Chocolate on it's way via carrier flamingo. xxx

  • @degausser  Feb 3

    You get a semi-sucked square.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 3

    Thank you! 😁
    There's a kind of history to the whole cowbell-playing gargoyle thing that started last year. But if you enjoyed it, that's good enough for me.

  • @degausser  Feb 3

    No problemo judypie. I think it's just the beginning of the verse bit that sounds like it. Not obvious though, I'm just winding you up.. Ha, I don't think anyone has written a song about me before.. That's my trick!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 3

    [yoda voice] Yes. Breathe must you [/yoda voice]

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2

    Thank you so much. 😀

  • @degausser  Feb 2

    *pushes play*

  • @clioem  Jan 31


  • @karlsburg25  Jan 31

    Hmmm eastern wonders may only exist if I capture the odd monkey scream! Don't expect Kula shaker karl 😉

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 31

    Looking forward to hearing your music!

  • @dragondreams  Jan 29

    Better late than never is good! I teach a young lady and her grandfather (he's 64) on Saturdays and he's the best student I've ever worked with! 😁

  • @dragondreams  Jan 29

    Hi 😊
    Pick up that guitar and go for it! 😁
