Influences: 80s funk/dance, Little Dragon, Hot Chip, Junior Boys, Zero 7, synthwave, 70s funk, Herbie Hancock, George Duke, Joe Sample, Bobby Blue Bland
A producer constantly working on his craft...learning, learning, learning.
Trying to finally see if I can really do something with my music, instead of just letting it sit on my computer!
My sound is...old school without a doubt but not quite. Its my childhood and my emotions and my thoughts...usually conveyed through funky/downtempo/chill/synthwavy/bouncy/familiar/strange/melancholy...stuff.
Thank you for your kind words on "Start Again".
what a kind comment you left me today on 'Penalty' - thanks very much!
Thanks for the great comments! I hear you about your Mum. Mine busted her arm badly 4 months ago. Bouncing in and out of hospitals, convalescent care and now rehab, plus dealing with congestive heart failure, has left her weak and confused. Great fodder for songwriting, that's for sure. I hope all goes will with your Mum.
Haha yessss! You’re so welcome. And thanks to your jamz, those cookies turned out UH mazing. It’s like singing to flowers to make them grow better, maybe?
Keep it up! You can make 14 at this rate.
RE: fleshing out songs, lop-sided ratios seem like part of the experimentation process. It'll happen. Not all songs work, and not all songs sound best on the first shot. I'm glad you keep pushing on! If you have a better idea later, you can always change it. I've already got a few songs that bombed [to me], and I've just held or hidden them for now.
I think you'll find the FAWM community is pretty supportive, so it's a safe place to push yourself outside the comfort zone.
Also just FYI: your comment to me about the bass got chopped off (the "characters left" count tends to lie), But no worries! Anyway... keep up that momentum!
Hey, thanks a lot for your lovely compliment. Have a great FAWM!
The weirder, the better - in my books, at least!
Welcome to FAWM !
Before I even listen to any of your music, I have to say how much I LOVE your username 😀 Where on earth did you think it up from ?
Thanks for the kind words! I'm not sure, but I'm guessing the Moon song (and the other songs so far, for that matter) took somewhere between 4-6 hours each, including listening time. I remember waiting a day to make sure I was happy with some of the mix/tone choices. I'm still not 100% on the bass but it's postable at least.
In general, if I don't sleep on it before posting, I'm making a mistake. 😀 Which reminds me, I still have to fix a minor vocal phrasing issue on "The Cat Is Not A Window" that's haunting me...
How long did you spend on "I Can't Do That, Dave"? That makes a LOT of good sonic choices to keep the song interesting, and it sounds like you had fun too. Whatever process you used there, seems like something worth keeping.
