Artist Bio

Influences:   Truth, sanity, immigration, civil rights, freedom of the press.

Late February update: Thanks to a two-week business trip followed by a week recovering from a bad cough, I did less songwriting this February than I have since I started FAWM ten years ago. So this actually turns out to be February EP Writing Month.

Racists, Repugnant Party supporters, and fans of President Troll are not welcome here.

Most of my songs this year were composed and recorded almost entirely in the OP-1, a portable synth with a sequencer and a four-track recorder built in. It's a bit like recording to tape in that editing is not easy, and you have to bounce down often enough that you must make multiple cannot-undo decisions in the course of a single song.

Meanwhile the musical trend seems to be melodies, defaced and mangled. Appropriately distressed vocals. Distorted harmonica.

    Hey Ken...yeah dropped C tuning with partial Capo on Among the Roses. Thanks for your feedback. on the bass overload. I'm a lousy engineer but will know better and roll it off when I re-record. Thanks for the tip. I'm glad you enjoyed the tune overall.

    Thank you for your kind words on "Quilted Heart" and "#Metoo".

    I corrected my typo, I tend to rush to get the songs posts and mess up a lot on my lyrics when I post them.

    Ah, didn't even think about the fact that you'd be doing it in one session, makes total sense!

    that boss digital delay pedal I have might be slightly later the '83, tho its from , at the very latest, the early 90s..(googled the earliest they started making them and that was '83, i think) I know my mxr phase 45, tho, is from about 1978, early 79 at the latest (based on when I got it).
