Artist Bio

Influences:   Thoughts between waking and sleeping. The radio. Newspaper headlines. Overheard conversations. Trees. Everyday weirdness. Hikes through the jungle of the internet. Crows. Rainbows. The seven seas.

Seventh year FAWMer, coffee-addicted singer/songwriter, playing and singing in the German band "Singvøgel" (see website), stubborn user of her mother tongue for lyrics (don't worry, I'll provide translations), intending to have as much fun as can be possibly squeezed into the shortest month of the year.

Check out my bandmates:
@sentense
@dukemeyer



How I work:
Mostly with my guitar at hand, sometimes lyrics first, sometimes music. Recording with my Zoom H4n, mixing with Mixcraft. Occasionally I use Band in a Box. I am not very tech savvy, so don't expect professional productions here (they'll come later, in collaboration with my bandmates).

I won't mark any "artist's favourites" until all is done, because I just can't decide right now.

  • @kevinemmrich  3 weeks

    I have BIAB also and I have used the bass and drum on my last two fawm numbers (and acoustic guitar on #3). It is an excellent tool, but I haven't used it as much lately. I didn't even upgrade to 2015 this time around. However, it does some up with some fine rhythms and instrumentation. I even used the demo songs from a couple of styles to get started on my last two songs. Between that and the auto intro thing, I get a lot of musical ideas that I wouldn't come up with on my own!

  • @zumboletta 3 weeks

    Did it, my dear!
