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!!
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 !
I knew exactly where my words were going if she accepted. Thx fir you comments.
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 😀
Yes thank you for not doing that <3 Hopefully more tunes soon!
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!
As said in my orofile I would really like you to email me acousticmaddie (a) gmail.com if you would like to do changes Before you do anything ok? 😀
I would love if set it to music. THANK YOU. I add you to it in a sec/Maddie
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?
Thanks so much for that comment on Stick.
How are you coming along with Tiger?
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...
Thanks so much for your comment! <3
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...
Thanks for your nice comment. The lead guitar tone is a Hagstrom D2F into a DIY Fuzz Factory pedal and some delay.
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.
Yay! please do give Decadent Disgust a little attention. I'm excited to hear what you come up with.
Thanks for visiting ‘Way Too Much’. Do you also deal with anxiety?
You seem to believe I know how to take a compliment...
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!
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.
If I have some lyrics I can’t do anything with (often happens) I’ll send them your way. Thanks for your comments!!
O, come on...
Please do, I would Love that!
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...
Thanks for your comment. Hoping to hear more from you!
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!
Yes, of course, you can alter the song title... (and any other part). I am looking very forward to it...
Hey! There is no special etiquette, all is free for all, and you can alter the words any way you like as well... 😀
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!
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... 😀
Silliness? Angry politics? We may just be able to do business...
Welcome to the fray.
Welcome aboard. It's always good to see you, online or face to face. Happy FAWMing.
So good to see you here with us this year, hope you have a great FAWM! 😀
