Elmvale Canada   2 weeks  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Elvis Costello, Björk, Father John Misty, Mica Levi, Leonard Cohen, Motörhead, The Cardigans, Bee Gees, The Beatles, MC Chris, assorted silliness, well-placed fury... and my sole guilty pleasure, Kiss (love the music, but there's SO MUCH misogyny)

Spent my wee years with AM radio, and my teens with thrash metal and glam rock.

Served time in an industrial metal band in the early aughts, with whom I played 2004 Canadian Music Week.

Now it's just me and an acoustic, strumming away on silliness and angry politics, with an amazing partner, an annoying cat, and much nostalgia for the aggressive days.

The Muses don't show up for me when asked, and the Wordsmith Muse doesn't visit nearly as often as the Tuneful Muse.

If you're a lyricist, maybe we could do something?

Also, I'd enjoy trying to finish something you've abandoned.

    Your "able to sing a murder ballad" gave me a good chuckle! If you wanted to keep things simple, you could just post a forum titled "Let's do a 3-way... collaboratively speaking" and say We have the music, the melody, the lyrics... looking for a singer to round it out. Then just post a link back to your original song.
    Just wanted to tell you that I checked out your website... you sir, are UBER-TALENTED!!

  • @oneslowtyper  19 hours

    HAHA... I would LOVE to hear what you have in mind for my Hogan's Heroes inspired lyrics. Feel free to post it as a new song and you can just mention me in the liner notes, or I can add you as a collaborator... your choice.

    I always have a sort of interim music for all songs which i only use when i am finally happy. Somehow this ones interim music just hasnt grabbed me. It was a simple ADE7. But i am happy if you wanna find the real music !

  • @coolparadiso  1 day

    I knew exactly where my words were going if she accepted. Thx fir you comments.

  • @visiblydistorted 1 day

    I like it as is, but faster might give more of the hint of IN YOUR FACE COMMERCIAL type short attention span? I dunno... it could work. up to you 😀

  • @lanasolyluna 3 days

    Yes thank you for not doing that <3 Hopefully more tunes soon!

  • @lanasolyluna 3 days

    Certainly lots of good dudes out there,and that’s why I try to call out a woman’s behavior too because it was also presumptuous and insensitive, but important to call certain things out because honestly I’m quite sure the guys I’m writing about feel that they’re “good guys” and they are woke in certain ways but this type of sexism is so engrained. Anyway thanks for listening. Really I think that’s what most women want: just to be heard. So thank you!

  • @acousticmaddie  3 days

    As said in my orofile I would really like you to email me acousticmaddie (a) if you would like to do changes Before you do anything ok? 😀

  • @acousticmaddie  4 days

    I would love if set it to music. THANK YOU. I add you to it in a sec/Maddie

  • @dutch1967 4 days

    O man! That’s terrible, but so cool you’re soldiering on. I’m so curious to hear what you made of Tiger. And what you think of mine - coz you’ll finally be able to hear it without fear of being -what was it?- jinxed?

  • @dutch1967 5 days

    Thanks so much for that comment on Stick.
    How are you coming along with Tiger?

  • @lanasolyluna 5 days

    Thank you. No plans for a solo album at the moment but hopefully @santadharma will finally get a proper album released.

  • @arthurrossi 5 days

    Hey! Thanks for your comment on "I´d rather die than to beg for love"... I would love if you also gave it a try... As always, please, feel free to alter the words any way you like...

  • @santadharma 6 days

    Thanks so much for your comment! <3

  • @sph  6 days

    Yes, the Chain in that case was FuzzFactory, TC Flashback Mini, Hughes Kettner Red Box, Focusrite Interface. And I forgot to load an ampsim in the DAW...

  • @sph  1 week

    Thanks for your nice comment. The lead guitar tone is a Hagstrom D2F into a DIY Fuzz Factory pedal and some delay.

  • @visiblydistorted 1 week

    Yep, you can change it how you see fit! I suggest tweaking the title to something similar, and post it as another (separate), song for the collab instead of updating the one I have posted.

  • @visiblydistorted 1 week

    Yay! please do give Decadent Disgust a little attention. I'm excited to hear what you come up with.

  • @fearlessflight2014  1 week

    Thanks for visiting ‘Way Too Much’. Do you also deal with anxiety?

  • @dutch1967 1 week

    You seem to believe I know how to take a compliment...

  • @mardeycranbleson  1 week

    Thanks for the comment on hell baby, I agree the mix was really off. I dont know if it got better but it made me go back and redo the vocals and turn down the guitar a bit. thanks!

  • @visiblydistorted 1 week

    Have you ever heard of Adbusters' "Buy Nothing Day" campaign? I love everything about it, and if you're a kindred spirit in anti-marketing, you'll probably get a kick out of that too.

  • @lanasolyluna 1 week

    If I have some lyrics I can’t do anything with (often happens) I’ll send them your way. Thanks for your comments!!

  • @dutch1967 1 week

    O, come on...

  • @kahlo2013  1 week

    Please do, I would Love that!

  • @dutch1967 1 week

    @moonraccoon go right ahead and ride that Tiger. As @stephenwordsmith said his collabs aren’t exclusive. And that’s conclusive.

  • @stephenwordsmith  1 week

    My lyrics aren't exclusive to one collaborator by nature (as you can see from my tracklist) - but you will have to run things past @dutch1967 to see if he's OK with it.

  • @arthurrossi 1 week

    I would like to thank you very much for bringing these words to life in such a gorgeous way... I like the pace and the strumming feels perfect for this song. I am very happy how it turned out... Could you, please, be so kind to send me an MP3 on my email, too? I would look very forward to it...

  • @lanasolyluna 1 week

    Thanks for your comment. Hoping to hear more from you!

  • @arthurrossi 1 week

    Hey! Thank you so much for this wonderful song! The musical direction you took it really suits the words beautifully... The menacing atmosphere becomes very palpable here... Awesome vocal delivery as well... May I ask you for the favor to send me the MP3 on my email address, which is
    ? I would like to save it and listen to it also when this FAWM is long over... Thanks so much for all once again!

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Yes, of course, you can alter the song title... (and any other part). I am looking very forward to it...

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Hey... I wanted to let you know I just wrote kind of a murder ballad with the title "Moon-dancer"... Here is the link if you like to check it...

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Hey! There is no special etiquette, all is free for all, and you can alter the words any way you like as well... 😀

  • @visiblydistorted 2 weeks

    If Bjork is one of your influences, then that's a good indicator of your collab worthiness. Yay!

    I will most certainly post lyrics on an open ended collab basis. See you there, if you so desire to pursue such an invitation.

    Welcome to FAWM!

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Hey! Thanks a lot for your kind words and welcome here! Of course, I would be delighted at it... If you like, as soon as I have the one or the other murder ballad, I will hit you up... 😀

  • @stephenwordsmith  2 weeks

    Silliness? Angry politics? We may just be able to do business...

    Welcome to the fray.

  • @ductapeguy  2 weeks

    Welcome aboard. It's always good to see you, online or face to face. Happy FAWMing.
