Artist Bio

Greetings and good luck for FAWM 2017!

I've been around FAWM for seven years now, although I haven't actually won a FAWM since 2012 I don't think... I need to force myself to write this year!

Other than just getting over the finish line, I'm also going to try not to rely too much on acoustic guitar this year - and instead get some use out of my keyboard and my telecaster. Also hoping for a cameo from @helenseviltwin's mandolin.

I'm based in Cambridge in the UK. I'm in a couple of bands - Jacqui and Geoff with @expendablefriend and The Seven Twenty with @theseventwenty, @stewartscissor and @helenseviltwin.

Have a good FAWM - looking forward to hearing as much new music as possible!

    It's less difficult than you might imagine... and certainly gets easier the more you do it. I did a few that were garbage and didn't post those, but on the whole, as long as I am chanelling something, it comes good!

    Thanks for commenting on "Saffron and Gold". It was entirely made up in one take - words and music.

  • @crisp1  Mar 1

    Thanks for the comments on Whitewash. It was fun to hear what Neil did with it.

  • @vomvorton  Feb 20

    Thanks 🙂

    The radio-ified bit at the end is from a song I wrote when he moved into our flat, during 50/90 2012 as it happens. Thought it was a nice way to end things with a memory of happier times.

    Honestly it's just a case of throwing a bunch of ideas against the wall and hoping that something will stick - there's no method at all!

  • @rbmarty000 Feb 2017

    Love our sound .. listened to your band.

  • @kevinreid Feb 2017

    Sorry, Geoff. I think I'm going to take a break this year. I'll come back and listen through your tunes later this month.

  • @rbmarty000 Feb 2017

    Listening to Kicking at Birds.. really cool..

  • @theseventwenty Feb 2017

    hi geoff

  • @dasbinky  Feb 2017

    Keep the nightlight on inside the birdhouse in your soul. 😀

  • @frenchcricket Jan 2017

    I think we could do beef. Vegetarian beef though, if you please

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 2017

    Baked goods. Oatmeal cookies are a definite outrage.

    Or money. I find money to be terribly, terribly outrageous and fly right off the handle and into the pan when it's left laying offensively about my apartment.

    But, don't tell anyone that, okay?

  • @jonniegrunge  Jan 2017

    Howdy! Yep, back this year. I think. Good to see you here too.

  • @expendablefriend Jan 2017

    Kick ass, womble.

  • @izaakalexander  Jan 2017

    Yes! Let's do this! I still remember your 2012 win and some great sounds that came from it. Go ahead and force it... go after it with a big stick... I'm looking forward to listening!

  • @mctown Jan 2017

    2017, onward we go......

  • @helenseviltwin  Jan 2017

    Dueling mandolins!

  • @kristian  Jan 2017

    oi! Good to see you are back! Hopefully back with a vengeance? A Vengeance for blooooood! ... or beer

  • @saxylizbeth  Jan 2017

    YO! In theory, yes. Don't think I'll get as much done as last year but I'm hoping...

  • @vomvorton  Jan 2017

    Ey up! Happy 2017. Hope to hear lots from you this year!

  • @mdavisto Jan 2017

    You're very kind, thank you for listening to our tunes. I also have a soft spot for Prototype.

    Good luck this year. May you be marinated in creative sauces.

  • @tobermory  Jan 2017

    Oh hey! Wombles unite again! I look forward to being really tired but still trying to sing at 2am 😉 Mandolin sounds exciting to me

  • @helenseviltwin  Jan 2017

    GeoffREY! I'm excited you're going to play the mandolin, or are you saying I'm going to play the mandolin on your songs? I'm confused. Either way, exciting!

  • @oddbod  Jan 2017

    ah we all need a bit of luck sometimes. Enjoying it is the main thing though. Cheers
