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 12

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

  • @tuneslayer2018  Feb 12

    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 11

    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 7

    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 5

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

  • @bodhisvaha Feb 5

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

  • @ajna1960  Feb 4

    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 4

    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 4

    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 4

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

  • @lake  Feb 4

    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 3

    Thanks! Cold subjects Warm heart?

  • @rbmarty000  Feb 3

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

  • @lake  Feb 3

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

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2

    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 1

    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 1

    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 1

    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 1

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

  • @lake  Feb 1

    Awesome!!! Thanks!!!!!
