First time FAWMer. Swedish singer/producer/mixing engineer now living in Finland. Loves rock and metal, but anything goes as long as it's good. Student, father of two, dog owner.

I'm overwhelmed with all the positive vibes on here! Didn't think I had this many songs in me during such a short time span. I'm having such a blast writing, and I'm so glad I joined in on FAWM for the first time.

    thanks for your comment dear, yep, now you're pretty much singing the line all my friends have been singing to me kkkkkkk I hope I can muster a full production soon. And btw no, you're not the only one the 80's are alive

  • @joefahey  15 hours

    Hey! Thanks for the boost of confidence and thoughts on that weird cannibal song. It was kind of out there but I gave it another listen right now and it made laugh, so thank you!

  • @ericdistad  23 hours

    Thank you for your great comment on Regenerate Degenerate. Yeah, recorded my live take with a mic on the sound hole and also from the pickup and then ran the pickup into an amp sim to distort it so I had a blend - the song felt like it needed some grit. 😀

  • @acousticmaddie  23 hours

    I'm happy you liked the XX shades-track 😀

    I actually like it myself to. Thanks for the kind comments.

    I am still confused finding myself in this softrock-genre. Still just sneaking around to find whats me. But yes I feel like kind of finding and getting to know that voice.

  • @gemhughs 1 day

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

    Thanks for the kind words on "Rewind." A hearty welcome to FAWM which will greatly benefit from your participation!

  • @rustyp 1 day

    Hey Marcus, Thanks so much for your kind and encouraging comments on my song "cheap Motel." It was pretty fun to write. It made me laugh. 😀

  • @aprilm  1 day

    Marcus, you are far too kind, and humble as well. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. It's my FAWM friends who have helped me develop as a musician and I am so happy to have made another connection with someone whose music I totally admire. I'm inspired to rock out with more abandon when I get the positive vibes from others. Thanks for that!

  • @aprilm  1 day

    I'd love to be able to rock out on the guitar! Your music is awesome and I keep coming back when I can to take a listen.

  • @johncrossman  1 day

    Here's the whole silly musical collaboration song with @cowex's notes if you have a chance. It's great to hear it completed:

  • @johncrossman  1 day

    Just happened to be here, thinking about my next tune. Grew up in the 80s so I can totally hear it.

    My intention is to listen to all your songs but they're soooo well done I want to make sure I'm done squeaking and scratching more of mine out first. 😀

  • @krayzie003  3 days

    Thanks for your comments. I agree, "Cage" definitely has a kind of grunge feel to it.

  • @s7even 4 days

    Thanks for the kind words on “breaking down”! Really appreciate it. Glad you liked it.

  • @acousticmaddie  4 days

    Haha dunno. My son thought I should go for 100 but dunno:) Thanks for the kind compliment .I am really trying to find myself in the softrock sound but Im not sure what I am there jet. But I liked that song to. Thanks for encouraging me Marcus. Very kind of you.

  • @fonte  5 days

    Thanks for the thoughtful listen and comment on fruit Marcus! Much appreciated. You are right I agree the vocals are a bit burried and drowned in effects also - that's a tendency I have as I don't consider myself a singer so I tend to do that to avoid hearing my singing too much 😀

  • @jibbidy34  5 days

    Thank you for listening to some of my songs Marcus! I hope to return the favour when I'm back from vacation!

  • @acousticmaddie  6 days

    Thank you Marcus you are to kind

  • @mungus  6 days

    Thanks for you're awesome comments on School Nights - I agree about the vocals in the mix - this is something I don't seem to ever get right

    I think it's because vocals are always the last thing I write and then record after most of the track is already done, and made without considering what space I've left for the vocals to sit - and by that time I'm attached to the sound of the music

    You're vocals are so powerful and clear, I have much I could learn from you haha, thanks for listening - I think my more recent tracks have even more inaudible vocals though!

  • @robinh  1 week

    That's awesome you got a drum kit for your kids, I did the same when my oldest kid (who is now 20!) was 8 or 9 and now she plays on all my recordings. Much to look forward to!

  • @coolparadiso  1 week

    I am colour blind. Its really of little significance these days, but when i was a kid i was forever told what i couldnt do. Thx for your comments. I am learning all the time. I hate videos but until a week ago i had never heard of Soundcloud.

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    If I could produce hip hop beats you certainly can. Unfortunately I am a bad mindreader 😀 becourse I dont hear hip-hop in that although I do think the lyrics would suit your rock-voice.

  • @siebass  1 week

    Thanks for the comment on my samples from MARS song. I ended up going just for the drums bundle, since I really wanted to get some new cool samples to play around with, but I'm still seriously overwhelmed. A lot of great hits to sift through.

  • @seemanski  1 week

    Thanks for your comment, you guessed it. It is an octave on my guitar, opting for a lot of drop d tunes to help it sound bassyish.

  • @aprilm  1 week

    Thanks Marcus for checking out Let Me In. I settled on that treatment of the vocals as I was looking for a particular sound. Unfortunately, I don't have the skills or equipment to always put things together in the production end of things to accomplish what's in my mind's eye. I hope the feel I was going for can be intuited 😀

  • @phoenixash 1 week

    Thanks for the comment and compliments, you're right, I actually have in mind a ful band and full orchestral arrangement for all of my songs... impossible right now, but... most dreams are 😀 doesn't mean they don't come to life.

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    Thanks mate. ALso dont hesitate to grab and rework the bad-ass song in any way you want if you have an idea. That was a skirmish thing so very impulsive writing its yours if you want it

    Thanks for the feedback on Slow Down.

  • @cynthiawolff  1 week

    thanks for your comment on what you use to record and maybe even
    someday I may understand what you are talking about!!
    I sure hope so cause everything you make is so amazing...

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    Thank you Marcus for your kind comment on my singing on Cernobylmemory. 😀 Its always very interesting to get creative voice acting possibilities. Feel free to kill me any day 😀

  • @fonte  1 week

    Hey hey ! Thanks for your comment on stay glad you liked the sounds!

  • @johncrossman  1 week

    That's so weird, I thought I fixed the link! I noticed right away. Now it's definitely right. I'll be back to listen and check out some more tunes as we go.

  • @wacha  1 week

    Thank you for the kind words on my songs. I have seem to fallen into writing folk music this year. Rather than fight it, I'me just going to go ahead and embrace it and see where it takes me.

  • @jorh 1 week

    Thankyou for you kind comments on ‘cause it’s been 9 years dad’! Sorry we made you tearful, I’ll be sure to check out your songs when I finish work haha

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    Cool you got mail (Check your spam if it did not reach you its from gmail ) I Answered the other things there to.

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    Thank you for comming up with ideas for Never stay for worse. If you have a concrete idea for the whisteling verse etc feel absolutely free to play with it.maybe that could be the duett 😀
    (Its another improvised 17 min song so i used"safe chord loop C F G C.)

    I started with songwriting in sheffield but now studying songwriting (or dunno the english word but soundartist) at the uni in swe (audioengineering (live events etc) and composing for different occations are both parts of it)
    I feel much more comfortable behind the main artist than in the spotlight so suits me perfect .
    Thanks for being so generous with your compliments.

  • @colgoo  2 weeks

    Check your email. I sent you some lyrics to consider.

  • @jani 2 weeks

    Hey Marcus! Thanks for being so supportive 😀 I am really glad you made the comment about one of my songs sounding like it would be good with a whole band (that is my goal eventually) 😀 great work btw I really really like your stuff

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Well, your love of sushi sure paid off! Thanks for coming around to check out Next Time. I love collaborating with @kahlo2013. She writes awesome lyrics.

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    I am happy you feel that. I had the same experience with Fawm last year. Before I had trouble writing and as studying it i had to . But fawm changed that and I started to belive more in my own way of non-commercial writing since I write mostly norse ballads (svenska visor) and medieval stories.
    I only do one takes (and small fx placeholders) becourse I belive that if i burst out all those songs that scream to be written at least 1/10 will be good enough to transform to a bigger production.
    Its a pleasure to listen to your productions as you are incredible talented.

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    You are very supportive. Thanks for the kind comment on mine and Arthurs collab.

  • @colgoo  2 weeks

    So, I guess I need to save up my money for a trip to Finland!!!

    Anyway, for the collaboration, I was thinking that you could e-mail me (my FAWM username at mac dot com) and tell me what you'd like for lyrics....or you could send me an instrumental track and I could send you lyrics with a voice recording of how I'd envision them sung. I have also written lyrics and done vocals for people. So, I am flexible.

    Common courtesy here with collaborations is that you get the other person's permission to perform their lyrics/use their backing track, and if you do edits, you also seek permission beforehand. You retain copyright to your part of the collab. So, later on, if you wanted to use the backing track for a different song, you totally could...I own my part of the process with that same understanding. So if you decide to put the song on band camp or another money-making site, you get my permission first and vice versa.

    Let me know if that sounds fun.....

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    Thank you Marcus for your awesome comment on The young one and the knight.
    Well I do improtheater so improvising is overall part of me. And usually my songs do come out just by flipping some instrument around and having a word, a chordprogression or a situation stuck in my head.

    I am honored to get that fron you since your work is absolutely awesome.

  • @colgoo  2 weeks

    Marcus, if you are interested in a collaboration, I would be honored to write some lyrics for you to perform. Wow! I am impressed!

  • @jiminkendal 2 weeks

    @mmmmarcus thaks very much for your feedback; wasn’t the easiest chord sequence on mandolin, but glad you liked it. Cheers Jim

  • @mleverette  2 weeks

    @mmmmarcus I wrote a song tonight that you totally rock the vibe on. Let me know if you're interested in a collab. I don't expect finished products this month, btw. These are all works in progress. I have lyrics and a melody.

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Thanks for checking out my songs! Yes, I have been productive. I work a very demanding job during the week so tried to squeeze in as much as possible on the weekend. Plus I was saving some ideas for FAWM! I'm doing 2 other collaborations so will focus on the as time permits. Happy FAWMing!

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Hey Marcus!!! (waving enthusiastically)

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    Det vore grymt såklart!

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    Thanks for your kind comment.
    Yes I know:) I am a bit lazy with my fawm songs as I just see the arrangement as placeholders in case I choose a song for later production. I
    Thanks for complimenting my voice. Very happy to have you on fawm

  • @unkept 2 weeks

    Thanks for the feedback on "Where I Come From". 😁 Good advice on the vocals, I was planning on doing some mixing, but as always I don't do a ton of editing on FAWM. I'm going to take a listen to your stuff now. 😀

  • @jmadison  2 weeks

    Hey mmmmarcus... thanks for listening to my blues! I barely had it posted. You're quick!
