RB Marty 17


Westmount Canada   Jan 2017


Artist Bio

Influences:   any well thought out composition or song

This is my second year.. Made it last year all 14. This year will be another great opportunity to collab again. I have been using Songspace.com and Hooktheory.com to flesh out ideas and put them down.
I live in Montreal - play piano, guitar. I use Cakewalk to compose and make simple recordings. I love making something from nothing. I love telling stories. I love it when someone's voice and style adds life to one of my compositions.

    Hi Marty. I never thanked you for your offer of help early on this FAWM. I got so caught up in working on a couple of songs that took me much longer than I thought they would so, sorry, and thank you. Maybe next year we can try collaborating. Hope you're still around to read comments, 'cause I'm gonna go listen to a few of your new songs right now. : )

    Hmmm. Well would you mind if I do up a demo on my own steam, or would you rather I not?

    As for setting a tune to one of my lyrics, sure, I'd like to see what you come up with. Pick one.

  • @karismitchell  Feb 17

    I love what you came up with for Don't be Halfway. I need to find a way to record vocals for you.

  • @tuneslayer2018  Feb 2018

    Thank you for the compliment! I look forward to your comments on what I put together.

  • @tuneslayer2018  Feb 2018

    Hey Marty (or do you prefer to be called something different?) I sent you a first draft of a set of lyrics on your wix page. Let me know if it's what you had in mind and if it is we can start working on a tune for it.

  • @tuneslayer2018  Feb 2018

    I like the idea behind "Rose At Midnight." Let me see if I can come up with something that helps tell that story.

  • @siebass  Feb 2018

    My time is limited this FAWM, but I'd be happy to collaborate if you have the patience to work with me. Let me know what you had in mind.

  • @jenjen Feb 2018

    Hey! Fun idea! Let me spend a little time with it and I'll send you what comes to me, cheers JJ

  • @bodhisvaha Feb 2018

    thanks for the feedback! The chords were a little weird to put together.

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2018

    Hi there 😀 I am interested in your idea concerning the collab on the Irish/Scottish song, but I would like to know more before I say a definite yes 😀 Maybe we can voice chat on Skype or Facebook etc soon to talk about it ? Thank you for asking me 😀

  • @karismitchell  Feb 2018

    I am so pleased my lyrics work for you. For Breathe I was thinking od something spare... the sound of the ocean always comes to mind when I meditate. Or a steady rain. But I am open to your interpretation.

  • @tuneslayer2018  Feb 2018

    Thanks for stopping by my soundboard. To answer your question, to date I've mostly played in front of live audiences but I am hoping to expand that a bit with a copy of Band In A Box.

  • @andygetch  Feb 2018

    Wild Horses seems flexible enough to work as lots of genres, including rock.

    Awesome job with Blue Ice! Love the music and the melody!!! Really nice tweaks to the words to make it clear what I meant by galcial paradise! I truly appreciate that you brought this to full life so beautifully!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2018

    Thanks! Cold subjects Warm heart?

  • @rbmarty000  Feb 2018

    Is there a hidden meaning here you wanted to express.. Im bad with relationships lol..

  • @lake  Feb 2018

    Yes the tall blue glaciers are lovely and amazing!!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2018

    Love your thoughts on Blue Ice thus far - agree with non 1sr person. I chose Climate Change for duality of meaning with one being metaphor for change in temperature of a relationship... but agree there is no image that comes to mind - so fine with me if you want to change that ...
    Snow caps melting sounds okay and gives an image but not a metaphor for a relationship
    landscape changing?
    shores eroding?
    avalanche comes?
    Pick what feels right to you!

  • @jenjen Feb 2018

    Thanks for sharing your resources in your bio! That is super helpful! I have written a couple songs ages ago, and then got inspired to start again this past year since I was busking with my band in the inner harbour and I thought we should have some originals instead of just covers (even tho the covers are super fun and crowds do love to hear songs that they know and love). I am aiming to write melodies along with the lyrics but I really want to make the 14 songs! so if I get stuck I will reach out! Thanks so much for offering! Happy creating!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2018

    That was likely confusing! I have two names on FAWM as I hope to get a two different concept collections of songs done! So I am also Lake!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2018

    Wow!! That is so so different than the driving rock I heard in my head as I wrote the lyrics but I totally love it... it is gorgeous and adds a whole different dimension that I love! Please run with it! I love it! This is why FAWM is so great as it helps me expand and grow as I meet great musicians!

  • @lake  Feb 2018

    And I trust your music sensibility. My vocals are awful - I think yours will be better!

  • @lake  Feb 2018

    Awesome!!! Thanks!!!!!
