Artist Bio

Influences:   Bluegrass, acoustic blues, acoustic rock, country rock, old timey. I like a lot of the new Americana stuff - Avett Bros and Jason Isbell are favs. Also into Haggard and the Beatles, etc.

I play acoustic music. I'm in a bluegrass/Americana band. My main instrument is mandolin, I play some guitar, but I seem to mostly write with a ukulele.

    Thanks! The FAWM NSFW gets added automatically if it detects certain words - in the case of that song, I believe it has found "shitting", which I suppose is fair enough.

    Thank you for your kind words on "Adrift", I know little to nothing about the sea or boats but "All is Lost" really spoke to me as being about way more than a man stranded on his boat.

    No worries jut let me know when you have something you want me to work on with you and we'll get going on it.

    I would be pleased to have you provide the music for The Immigrant.
    This is a subject I care about and I sense you would do a good job of presenting this. Adding a chorus would be OK with me. Looking forward to hearing the completed song.

    We've been paired as part of the random collaboration. Let me know if you would like to write up some lyrics for me to set to music or if you would prefer I come up with a tune for you to write the music to.

    Looking forward working with you. 😀

    Thank you for stopping by and listening and commenting on my ukulele piece about he dutch ship. I actually had a hard time becoming friends with the ukulele becourse people always seemed to use it only in happy tunes. Then I started to experiment with its darkness and I found the 6 stringed ukulele I really fell in love. Happy fawm to you to.
