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.
Fifth 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:
|1||Aus Atlantis / From Atlantis||
|2||Heim zum Mond / Home to the Moon||
|3||Ich weiß nicht / I do not know||
|4||Die Zeit vergeht / Time passes||
|5||Lobe den Tag / Praise the Day||
|7||Rattenschiff / Rat Ship||
|8||Guter Rat / Good Counsel||
|9||Weitgehend unsichtbar / Largely invisible||
|10||Viel zu still / Much too quiet||
|11||Deine Hände / Your Hands||
|13||Ich bin (nicht) / I am (not)||
|14||Nichts ist, wie es scheint / Nothing is as it seems @sentense||
|15||Abendland / Occident (Evening Land)||
|17||Wolkenkuckucksheim / Cloud Cuckoo Land @sentense||
|18||Weiße Rose / White Rose||
|19||Falsche Freunde @errol||
|20||Ich bin (nicht) @rahel||
|21||Wohin / Where @sentense||

Hey Karan: Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deinen fawmtastischen 21 Songs!
@wolfkier Mar 1
Thank you Karan for spending time with my music today.
I'm glad you enjoyed.
Looking forward to seeing/hearing you during 50/90 which, as you know, is much less intense.
Hope you had a marvlous month of February, or as I like to call it a Fab Feb!
@rahel Feb 25
Ich würde gerne versuchen, eine Geigenstimme zu deinem "Ich bin (nicht)" zu machen. Hättest du was dagegen?
@aquamunkee Feb 22
Congrats on another successful FAWM Karan! I had a late start this year and may not get to 14, but I'm writing again and that's what is important.

OOOOH! YOU WON! ALLLOOOOOO KARAN!
How's tricks? I've been so... unavailable this FAWM. *sigh*
Getting back to your soundboard comment, yes, you guys have to do a hangout concert, it is a lot of fun. The sound quality isn't all that great, but it's a good way to get non-local people to enjoy your music.
@johnstaples Feb 17
Thank you for listening to I Am Not and for your nice comments!!!
@snoozin Feb 16

@johnnyjustice Feb 8
Thank you so so much!
@jinx Feb 8
Liebe Karan, I'm happy to see you back here again! And your songs this year, as always, are magical. I actually recommended your music to my mother, who's learning German – what better way to learn than with such gorgeous lyrics that already include an English translation?
@paulmilne Feb 8
Thanks for your kind comment on "Low Sun Blinding my Winter Eyes". I see you have a few new songs up, looking forward to listening
@dukemeyer Feb 6
My whispering "louder than all the shouting"? Well then. I keep on doing it - both. To change. Following the promise: that there is no promise unless we give it. To every- or anybody we love. You told me to sing. You let my wings grow. Trying to fly now. But not alone. As long as I feel my heart beating, I'll pick you up: again and again. Soul sista! And when my heart won`l beat no longer: we'll meet again where we came from, and starting again and again. It's a circle. Not forever: only until the point is taken - far away, maybe. But I love every second I feel you. We are blessed. I'm with you. Always. Even in moments of doubt. I like to remember you of the better ones...
@shutyatrap Feb 5
I am not mistaken. your-style is so unique. however i think it must have been last years FAWM that I was thinking of! I can wait to listen to you more and thanks also for your comment!
@caterwauler Feb 5
