Influences: Jimmy Eat World, Phantom Planet, Imogen Heap, Weezer, They Might Be Giants, The Postal Service, Ray LaMontagne, Relient K, Wolf Parade, Regina Spektor, Tegan and Sara, Sigur Rós, James Taylor... I have always held a special spot in my soul for bluegrass, jazz, blues, and “oldies” as well. I’m not sure from where my own sound is derived, but I assume it’s a big mish-mash of little things I love about various songs I hear.
Second year of FAWM for me!
Thanks to 2017 FAWM, I was able to wriggle some ideas out of my head and into instruments and record them and in the following months play a few shows and share the stuff! I am super thankful for this group - it’s promoted a lot of growth for me, musically.
The website link will bring you to last year’s completed songs.
I took piano when I was a kid, and my dad taught me some guitar and I learned some tabs for Dashboard Confessional songs when I was a brooding teen haha.
I mainly play by ear and like to figure songs out and do covers sometimes...
I like chocolate chip cookies, bread and coffee probably a little too much. I live in the hometown of Daytrotter which is pretty cool, because we get a lot of spectacular musicians through here.
I have REALLY enjoyed discovered amazing musicians through FAWM and I’m sure I will unearth even more before the month is through.
Guys, this is so fun. I mean.
Sorry for the late reply! But thank you so much for listening! 😀 I'm super glad it made an impact.
Thank you so much for listening and the kind and generous words on my song ' when things fall apart ' . I really appreciate it .
thanks for your nice comment on my song! I play at open mics, and at one of them, I have a lead guitar and bass, and I can't wait to try out that 'one more drink' song with them. I'm no good at recording that kind of song.
Thanks for explaining how you do your vocals. They are so lovely!!
Thanks for listening to my mumbly track! I hope it made for good dishwashing accompaniment! A meditative quality sounds like just the thing I was after!
Thanks for your kind words! 😀 Much appreciated!
Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
didn't get to respond yesterday, but every since I read the comment that someone was baking cookies to my song, i've felt like a million bucks! if nobody ever likes anything i ever make...ever...doesn't matter, because someone was bopping and making cookies to my stuff! thank you forever! lol
Thank you so much for your encouraging comments, Leah! I'm not sure where you heard Weezer in "This is forever" (the tone of the electric guitar maybe?) but I definitely feel it's a huge compliment. Happy songwriting to you!
One of my fondest memories of childhood is my mom singing me to sleep. I think it might work.
Thanks for listening to Evergreen, and thanks about my voice
I agree, I need to work on how I mix vocals, I usually write music first before words, so I'm often quite attached to the music when the vocals arrive and don't quite know where to put them!
Thanks for listening! Yeah I’ve been playing with the campfires/ computer screens imagery for awhile and I’m glad I got to expand on it
This is a late thank you, but I appreciate you listening to my song!
Thanks for listening!
Thanks so much for the listens. As always, I'm in awe of your talent.
Carbs... I approve of this message. 😀
(Still have yet to make those rolls - I was too busy with the music)
Thanks for the comment on time to talk. Not used the phone much in the last few fawms feels a little inadequate given some of the amazing production some people achieve. Then I remind myself I am here to generate ideas and I am a little happier with my efforts
Thanks for checking out my surf tune! Much appreciated! And how did you know it was about guinea pigs? LOL 😀
Ta very much for your kind review 😀 😀 And yeah, I think listening back now the shock does work, I just felt like I'd said it a lot of times while I was recording, haha! Have a magical FAWM 2018!! 😀
Thank you so much for your kind compliment on my lullaby 😀
Thanks for your comments on “My Routine”. Looking forward to hearing your stufff! Have funFAWMing!
Thank you for your kind comment on "CAn't remember his name" Really appreciated.
Thanks for your kind words. Yes, we did completely unexpectedly meet up at Changi Airport. Neither of us had any idea the other would be there. And it wouldn't have happened if our plane hadn't been delayed.
Thank you for the lovely comment on "Wanderer"! Looking forward to some new tunes from you!
Best. Feedback. EVER! Thank you so much! Consider yourself watch listed 😀.
Awesome! Glad you're prepping for FAWM. I'm prepping for a meteor crash. Yah.
Hope you’re back this year, I always dig your stuff
Your fawming this year. No excuses. Well maybe except for a meteor crash or something....
You're going to be awesome again this year... I can tell. Can't wait to hear it! 😀
Hope you'll be back with more tunes to croon! Happy FAWM 2018!
