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. 😀

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.
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.
Thanks for you comment on "Mrs. Franklin". Even though it's a grim tale I had fun writing and demoing it.
Kevin, thanks for taking the time to listen to Numinous. I really appreciate it and your comments.

Thank you for your kind comments on "Nothing Is What It Seems" really appreciate it. I'll be watching you 😀
Thanks for commenting on my "Winter" song. Interesting that you have Justin Farren in your influences, I met him at a songwriter retreat last year, he's unique and engaging, both in his music and personality.
Wow, Kevin. Thanks for all the listening and kind words. I look forward to hearing more of your work.
Thanks for the lovely comment on "Better Angels"! Very glad you're enjoying your first FAWM. It is delightfully addictive, isn't it? 😀

Hey there thanks so much for your kind and thoughtful comment on 'stay' - fellow fist time fawmer and I'm much less productive than I'd hoped but I have some ideas waiting to record....😬
I appreciate it, thanks for the positive words.
Thanks for the feedback! That's definitely what I was going for with that track - consistent buildup. 😀
Thank you for the comment! Not just because you took the time to comment, but the actual words you left. Definitely a highlight of my morning. 😁
Hey, Kevin- Thanks for checking out my tunes! I'm glad you enjoyed them 😀
Thanks for swinging by my dusty saloon of a fawm page.
Yeah the Scourge doesn't like to loose, oddly enough, he is also a sore winner.

Nice one man, your comment on Pit of Misery made me laugh at work.
Thanks! Glad it resonated with you!
Thank you for checking out my song, will check out your tracks when I get home. Was about to quit FAWM already, but maybe Ill give it another try. Thanks for the nudge. 😀
Really glad you liked my pizza cover (cardboard box?). It was fun to make. You're doing great with the songs yourself!
Thanks for your comment on my song, much appreciated!
Glad to find this. Thanks for letting me know about FAWM, Kevin!
