Artist Bio

Influences:   Modest Mouse, Neutral Milk Hotel, Blackalicious, Justin Farren, Talking Heads

Wordy folk songwriter out of the Midwest US. First year doing FAWM! I mainly play my acoustic guitar and sing, but I've been trying to utilize my electric a little more. I do all my recording at home in a pretty humble setup, and I learn each time I make something new. I mix with Reaper and likewise, I learn as I go.

I put out a homemade album this past summer, titled "Drinking Water", which can be found on my soundcloud or bandcamp pages.

This month is an opportunity for me to get some stuff out without getting so stuck on polishing it. I've been really pleased to learn that I can create meaningful music more fluidly and quickly than I had thought. This has been a ton of fun so far.

I share some of my work on Instagram too at kevin_the_mason if you like it. πŸ˜€

    Yup yup, good to see you as well on here! Good work this month, I'm definitely still getting used to the songwriting process.

    Thanks for your comments on my song "The Puppeteer"

    I used to be an inanimate anthropomorphic representation manipulator myself - but nowhere near this guy on a skills level. I wish I could remember his name.

    Thank you, for reading my lyrics to Light astray, and for you interpreting and reading between the lines.
    I hope I find time to give it sound.

    Australian outbacks wane as well mate.

  • @erbaer  Feb 23

    thanks for the comment on Freedom-ness. I think it's still a bit unwieldy for song still. I have to either chop it up or expand it into a short essay.

  • @quork  Feb 23

    Thanks for listening to the harp riff. If you're interested here's the song I pulled it from: "Am I the Right Guy" (

  • @quork  Feb 22

    Thanks for you comment on "Mrs. Franklin". Even though it's a grim tale I had fun writing and demoing it.
