Karan 18


Germany   Jan 2009


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.

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

Check out my Singvøgel bandmates:
@sentense (who also accompanies my solo program with percussion)


How I work:
Mostly with my guitar, sometimes lyrics first, sometimes music. Recording with a 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 people who know what they're doing). 😉

    Thanks for translation, that is brilliant. Seems like tomorrow I have re-record the track with new vocals. 😀

    Thank You for commenting on "Matilda." It was fun song to make. Hopefully here is soon nicer weather for bike rides, -16c is nice and nature is beautiful and sun shines a lot during daytime, but for pointless bike rides it is a bit cold.

    If translating "Matilda" to German isn't too much of a trouble, I would like to have Your translation of it. I'm pretty sure that Your translation will be better than mine. 😀

  • @jamkar  Feb 23

    Danke Karan! Ich schätze deine Hilfe!

  • @sph  Feb 20

    Danke dir! Ich bin noch nicht gescheit dazu gekommen deine Lieder zu kommentieren, habe aber schon öfter abends reingehört. Viel schönes dabei

    Thanks for the listen & the kind comments on "Me Too".

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 15

    Thank you so much for commenting on my german songs. I really love the german language. It suits my type of writing so I urge to be able to write in it.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 11

    Thanks for your kind comment on the last which O am a bit obsessed with urban legends and stories so after living some years in germany she was my firat choice.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 9

    Karan, the Kickstarter, thank you but wait a while: there'll be another down the track because I want to put out the "Throttle me a busker" series of rage and angst, again with the fake book to go with it. (The Childes Garden Fake Book will be on sale as an eBook in a month or so and the CD will be available publicly too.)
