Artist Bio

This is my 5th FAWM and I am not going to stress over doing a certain number of songs, but will just take it as it comes. I was in the depths of doing my MA in Music Practice during the last FAWM so I was pleased to complete the MA in August last year.

This FAWM I going to go back to my regular song writing (rather than the experimental stuff of last year) and we try to write tunes that I could perform on my own (rather than with my band). If I can persuade him to get involved I will try writing some with my eldest son (who plays lead guitar in our band). We have written a few together in the past so it would be good to have a more focused approach.

If you want to know more about me as an artist and musician you can check out my website www.julesbryant.co.uk and my blog https://sonicsentience.music.blog/

Would be happy to hook up with more people on Facebook, I love the family atmosphere that FAWM produces and I keep up with some past FAWM friends throughout the year. (FAWM friends are not just for February!)

    Hi! Thanks for your comment on Iโ€™m Not, No More! I sing in a four piece band, and I plan to offer it up to them, as I think it could sound great with four different voices ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hey - the bass is a ministar basstar, but I think they've gone out of business. I got it about 10 years ago. You may be able to pick one up on ebay and, when I looked on Geoff's behalf (because he currently borrows my bass) I think there were Chinese knock offs (which may be exactly the same as the one I have, I'm not sure) still about on ebay.

  • @edwardsmusic Mar 22

    Thanks for commenting on my track "If I Knew You Better". I should have a completed version of the song when I find the time.

    Jules, thanks a lot for your nice comments on my efforts at putting benjo's 'Levitate'. It was fun to do. And the pressures of FAWM are definitely useful, as you said.

    Thanks so much for your encouragement regarding โ€œEpisodicโ€. Iโ€™ve always leaned towards minimalismโ€”although I do have my bombastic moments. Iโ€™m always happy to connect with musicians on Facebook too. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @tunecat  Feb 17

    Thanks for dropping by!

  • @berni1954  Feb 14

    Thanks for commenting on my "You Knew Where to Find Me"
    The lead guitar is probably so bad because
    a) it's a 3/4 electric guitar (perfect for my stumpy fingers) but the slightest unintentional bend when fretting will make it slightly sharp.
    b) I only started attempting lead solos last year (aged 63 ๐Ÿ˜€ ) so my playing in that area needs a lot of improvement ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 14

    Thank you so much for the nice comments on my tracks! I'm glad you liked them!

  • @splittybooms  Feb 14

    getting some great feedback stuff here, thank you! can't have someone call your song "killer catchy" and not feel better!
    the vocals are 2 samples that I have in a soundpack for my DAW. The rest is little ol' me.

    Thanks for the nice comment! I'd love to jam on some instruments other than uke this month, but I'm traveling so it's all I've got in my arsenal. I'll just have to coax some interesting sounds out if it! Happy FAWM. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @rachelmcclean Feb 2018

    Hey man, thanks! I'm excited and nervous to be back - I really want to get back to song writing because I've just not been getting to it the last couple of years - hopefully FAWM will spark it back this time around! My first song isn't particularly cello-y, but don't worry there'll be some cello before too long I'm sure ๐Ÿ˜€

    After last year didn't work out too well musically I'm not going to stress too much this time ๐Ÿ˜€
    Might do some experimental soundscapes as well to bump my numbers up
