2018 is somehow my tenth year fawming in the state of Delaware!
I (Michael Natrin) perform music as The Honey Badgers (@honeybadgerfolk), a singer-songwriter/folk/Americana duo with my wife Erin (@erinkelsey3).
I'm also an electrical engineer in the power industry and enjoy homebrewing beer, mead, and cider and also working on our Sprinter campervan conversion.
Please let me know what you think of my songs. Mainly recording vocals on a Shure SM7b and acoustic guitar with a Blue Bluebird, both through a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 and using Logic X [all when I have time/space]. It's often faster and easier to just use a trusty Zoom H4n.

yeah comeback time!
I love your songs and your voice. Please check out my lyrics and see if you feel you’d be interested in collaborating with anything. thank you.
Thanks for the welcome, natrin!
Hey! Thanks a lot! 😀
I'm in. I've already sung a couple of songs with Erin! Is she the badger and you're the Honey? So we can be... HoneyNeighbor!
That doesn't sound good though.
How come we haven't done a collab? 😞
Hello, have a good FAWM!
Thanks for listening and commenting on my thumb song! ^^
Thanks for saying hi! I'm so glad I heard about this, what fun! Happy creating! I'll check out your links..
Thanks for stopping by my soundboard.
HI Natrin. I will listen. I have to get an mage into my profile and am having trouble. DO you have any tips for me? Thanks so much. I wish I could actually text with an administrator or call customer service helper. do you know if there is a number for that...happy song recording and writing!!!!

Yay it's almost here! Thanks for the note!
Glad to see another FAWMer from Delaware on here! Can't wait to see what you post! 😁
Ha ha. Don't tell Erin I'm ahead of her in your influences. 😀
Thanks, you too! Enjoyed your intro video. 😀
I can't wait... I hope you have a wonderful FAWM! 😀
Thanks for the welcome message! Can't wait to hear your contributions.
Hey Michael!! We're using similar gear this year - I use a Shure SM7b for vocals, an ADK model A-51S large-diaphragm condenser for guitar, and both mics for percussion. My piano is a Korg SV-1, and Fender Squire P-bass, plugged in direct to Focusrite SaffirePro 40.
actually there was a photo of me from when i was a lil chickie and when there used to be a diner, and also some posts about the Castle open mic and MAN... nostalgia.
I need to tell you that one of the first recordings I ever heard of yours was you covering that little blurb, maybe from This American Life, where the guy goes "I used to work in Chicago.... at a convenience store..." and this continues to come up in my memory I'd say like 5-6 times a year. And I just went and poked through your blog and now I can't find it. But I can't forget it. I just thought you should know.
First this year!! 😁
Great to see you back!
Year 10!! Woohooooo!!! 😀
Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
