Washington USA   Jan 2007


Artist Bio

Influences:   rock punk indie country bluegrass western swing blues other

I'm mostly a bass player as anyone can tell from my guitar 'solos'. In my 20s I lived in Athens GA, and played a lot of original music. I still love original music more than anything and keep writing songs. I play in bars a couple nights a month. I have kept my day job.

Looks like i hit 14, mostly because of the 4-track cassette tape collaborations. I participated in a bunch of those, recording a part on a cassette tape and dropping it in the mail to the next person. Tons of fun! Easy sometimes, you play a simple part and you have another song on your list.

Here's a tiny garden of half-baked FAWM demos: http://soundcloud.com/fawm-standup/

If I had an album cover it would look like this:

  • @fearlessflight2014  5 weeks

    Thanks for your kind words on If It Rains. I'm pleased with how that turned out.

  • @reggiestyte 6 weeks

    Thanks for giving a few of my tracks a play & the thoughtful comments. Bass power!

  • @quork  6 weeks

    Hey standup, many thanks for your comment on "Feed a Little Fear".

  • @wacha 6 weeks

    Thank you very much for your kind words on "Mandy Lane!"

  • @judypie 7 weeks

    Thanks so much for listening to my song, it means a lot! πŸ˜€

  • @bigstarlet 7 weeks

    Thank you for your comments on.my song. It does need some work, so the ideas were welcome!

  • @ihelen  7 weeks

    Thanks for commenting on my Takeover song! Yes, I'm a beginner guitar player... but that's probably because I don't practice it enough. I think the DAW probably helped make it sound better with the distortion sound thingy too. πŸ˜‰

  • @monty  7 weeks

    Thanks fir the feedback on Galactic Dust. Looks like you've had an impressive FAWM.

  • @kristi  7 weeks

    Well that’s just it....the best songs come about because of something organic that happens in the creation of them. Gotta go with the flow! I find each FAWM seems to have β€œa life of its own”...and it’s personal for everyone! Glad you were so productive!

  • @tcelliott  7 weeks

    BRox are much better live, in my opinion. But they tour only sporadically, it seems. They are currently just getting back from the Americana cruise. Lucinda and a hundred (or so it seems) other bands playing on a cruise. Gotta try to save up for that if they do it again.

  • @tcelliott  7 weeks

    Re: The Bottle Rockets. Best comment I've ever gotten. (at least I think so at this very moment.) My favorite band. Thanks much!!!

  • @guatecoop  7 weeks

    Thank you for your nice comment. It was so cool to have @theresaj sing, as she does that so beautifully with her amazing lyrics. I was just concerned that she was taking a risk. So great to have great singers do what they do. I could never... Thank you.

  • @cblack  7 weeks

    Glad you enjoyed the Pokemon song. It was certainly fun to make. πŸ˜€

  • @tcelliott  7 weeks

    Thanks for the comment. Just to clarify, did you say that "chains" reminded you of the band, The Bottle Rockets? Like from St. Louis. Radar Gun and the like?

  • @apertome  7 weeks

    Whoops, well, I think you got my point πŸ˜€ I kinda want a Blofeld too ... Maybe I should play around with my Ultranova some more, it has a lot of features I haven't even used much. And I already own it, haha.

  • @apertome  7 weeks

    Hey, I've been enjoying your stuff, too! Thanks for your kind words!

    I have considered a Blofeld many times and never actually got one. I do have a Prophet 08 that I use extensively, as well as a Novation Ultranova which I think is really good, too (and much less money). The Tetra is close to the Prophet 08 but multitimbral (which would be nice!) and has suboscillators I believe, which the P08 lacks.

    The Blofeld I'm told is not too bad to program, even though it doesn't have much in the way of knobs. I think Tetra would be a pain (though OK if you used the software editor).

    I think it depends on what you're after. The Prophet doesn't have a lot of wacky features (no ring mod, for instance), but it does have great tone and a lot of modulation options. Tetra would be similar in that way. I've noticed the DSI sound tends to be rather bright which doesn't always appeal to me but now that I'm learning its strength and weaknesses I am more comfortable with it.

    Blofeld on the other hand

  • @w1n 7 weeks

    Thanks for all the nice comments, looking forward to checking out more of your tunes, not that I'll finally get internet at home again tomorrow. Updated the Seven Year Itch song I did with guatecoop btw.

  • @adnama17  7 weeks

    Old upright! 😊

  • @downfallroad  7 weeks

    Thanks for listening to "San Diego"!

  • @heuristicsinc  7 weeks

    Thanks, that movie was just so appropriate. And it's from post-WW II!

  • @paulharrison  7 weeks

    Hi Eric. I didn't realize it was you (from BSA, right?) until I came to your page here. I hope all is well with you and yours. Congrats on cranking out a lot of tunes. Anyway, thanks for your comments on one of my songs.

  • @cynthiawolff  7 weeks

    sorry for the two many posts...

  • @cynthiawolff  7 weeks

    Just thought of who you remind me of...
    Jakob Dylan...

  • @bigstarlet 7 weeks

    Heya! Thanks for the visit and the kind words. If I were born 20 years later, I think I could have made that song a rap tune πŸ˜€ Certainly something to think about.

  • @apertome  7 weeks

    Thanks again for the kind words! And wow, you've surpassed 14 songs at this point. Way to go!

  • @zecoop  8 weeks

    Yea, I always wish i could get more songs with my dad each year... the first year, I felt I had to have "complete" songs and wanted to jump in as a singer/songwriter. But after that, collabs showed up and I could stick to the music. But, I have had 1-2 songs each year with my dad... I knew as soon as I read this one, it was going to happen. πŸ˜€ Thanks for listening!

  • @elainedimasi  8 weeks

    I would love to take you up on that! I don't know whether I'll rent a car or not, I'm game to use the metro if not. - Do I remember that you do Agility with dogs? I just started!

  • @zecoop  8 weeks

    Gasoline turned out amazing! Thanks for the great lyric, vocal, guitar and mix! πŸ˜€

  • @pcob1993  8 weeks

    Thank you man, I really appreciate the comment. I only got one up this year because I have no revording gear with me and I'm staying in a friend's barn because of a divorce that shattered me into tiny pieces.... lately I've just been rolling with the punches and Fawm and Fawmers have been a godsend .I love you guys.
    To your music dude, you rock .

  • @fearlessflight2014  8 weeks

    Thanks! I appreciate you listening. It's been a frustrating FAWM. I only hit the 14 because of skirmishes where I only had time for incomplete lyrics. But it's better than not hitting 14. There's still time for me to get some audio. Just gotta wait for my finger and voice to heal.

  • @apertome  Feb 16

    I feel that way about my Eventide Timefactor. I use it on almost every track. Actually using it in looper mode some both since I don't have a dedicated looper, and that way I can't use the delay effects, haha!

  • @guatecoop  Feb 16

    You've inspired me to learn how to post pictures! Thanks for your comment. I now have pictures of the farfisa and the mic preamp on that song's liner notes...I think I am going to go overboard on the pictures now, though.

  • @zecoop  Feb 16

    Apparently not impossible... as Rob is demonstrating!! You have to mic the front right right above the keys. The back will have all the noise from that air pump... πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 16

    That Farfisa is a Pianorgan and is a wind reed organ. πŸ˜€ Google that. I have one too, but mine is a little newer, maybe the 70's. Hopefully i'll come up with something on mine too!

  • @zecoop  Feb 15

    @standup - No worries about the drum track!! I brought that track in twice, once with low EQ and once with high (for the drums). Turned out pretty good I think! πŸ˜€

  • @apertome  Feb 13

    BTW, I'd love to hear an ambient thing with acoustic resonator, I thought of buying one when I got the lapsteel, but decided to go for the lapsteel instead. I don't regret it one bit but I do love the sound of acoustic resonator and think it'd work well for ambient stuff.

  • @apertome  Feb 13

    Thanks for checking out my album, and for your kind comments. Yes, Clouds is a bit of a beast to figure out -- in fact, I almost sold mine and then FINALLY started to gel with it and changed my mind. I use the Parasites alternative firmware and it gets you a lot more mileage with additional modes. It's worth trying, if you haven't.

  • @eloisedrew Feb 13

    We can start with a theme. Maybe something about adventure. And I think it would be nice if we both wrote parts of it. As for singing, I do sing. I was thinking maybe you can sing most of it and I can do some harmonies. Whatever you are comfortable with. πŸ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Feb 13

    Thanks for the comment. We had a good time with the coffee song.

  • @rebeccajasso Feb 12

    thanks for your kind words on "Despite Your Best Intentions."

  • @nancyrost  Feb 12

    Thanks, Eric - it feels like the right thing to be doing right now. I'll tell you more some time, but in the meantime here's Hoops playing your bass part: https://youtu.be/y60q0qHM0hg?t=56s

  • @billwhite51 Feb 11

    In answer to your comment on my song when the wind Turns South.....I grew up in the south, and there are a lot of people there who never got over the civil war for sure....a lot of people in South Vietman havent got over the war there either. Neither have some of the surviving Native american tribes got over the genocide wreaked upon them by the Northern armies.

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 11

    Thanks for your comments on "Runaway." I look forward to checking out some of your songs soon too!

  • @nancihobson1  Feb 10

    Thanks for your kind comment on When Snow Falls....that's exactly what I wanted, an ambiguous message, does he return or not? I appreciate the listen!

  • @jensscholz  Feb 10

    Thanks for the comment, i'm happy to have brought you a laugh. I listened to some of your songs as well and envy you for your voice and this - for someone who actually tries to sing - useful ability to not miss the notes all the time.

  • @teapot Feb 9

    Thank you for such a thoughtful comment about my 'Rocket' song, so heartening!

  • @westashley Feb 9

    How do I go back and add a recording to lyrics I posted earlier?

  • @sarahk Feb 9

    Wow, thanks for your kind comment on "My Gravitational Getaway!" If I were a more competent pianist, I would have done a lot more musically. I honestly don't even know what a barrelhouse rhythm is, but I plan to look it up! Cheers!

  • @orinoco  Feb 8

    Thanks so much for the mention in the 'recommended' songs section. After an initial flurry I'm now behind on my listening but I look forward to hearing your tunes soon πŸ˜€

  • @mikegtz  Feb 8

    Hiya Eric, welcome back to the fray.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 8

    Thanks for the kind words about Florid!

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 7

    Thanks for listening to my song "Underneath The Tree", I appreciate it.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 7

    Haha...no, it really does fit! I was not just being nice.

  • @zecoop  Feb 7

    Thanks Eric... really appreciate it. That Compact on your craigslist looks fantastic. Price, not so much and that is the problem with these things. People actually like them now (kind of like 4-track players!) My GEM is not nearly as nice as that Farfisa, but it was $30, lol.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 7

    Hey, Thanx for the comment on "She May Be Crying". Yeah, that sound clip disturbed me too, that's why I took it. It's from the film "The Decline of Western Civilisation" (I think that's what it's called), a really great punk doc.

  • @aprilm Feb 6

    Thanks so much for commenting on Not Today. I appreciate you stopping in for a listen

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 6

    Hi Eric-thanks for listening to my song IV of News. Very interesting idea you had about the setting. It's funny you thought of the news in the bread as representing necessity. I had thought about it in a kind of a nauseating way-making yourself eat something terrible. Congratulations on giving yourself a break during FAWM!

  • @lishie5000 Feb 5

    full disclosure. i love reverb!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 4

    My address is the same...

    I got Coops first tape, just about to have a listen...
    Priority Mail, while $7, got it here in 2 days...

    Coop wants to re-unite the Watching, Waiting band!!
    so let the party commence

  • @rops  Feb 4

    Thanks for the comment! Glad you liked the hook.

  • @zecoop  Feb 4

    Sent it over...
    ...and see now that she already sent it to you! πŸ˜€

  • @brrrse  Feb 4

    @standup emailled my addy to ya

  • @middlec Feb 1

    Thanks for the kind note. I love Patty Larkin! Have a great month!

  • @owl  Feb 1

    It's almost time! I'm still up for a collab, we should make it happen this year!

  • @scottlake Jan 31

    Enjoyed the story inside your showcase tune. Also the single electric guitar accompaniment was just right for the story.

  • @carleybaer  Jan 31

    Happy FAWM to you too!! Can't wait to hear what you've got for us this time around πŸ˜€

  • @bhaile  Jan 30

    Hey, you're back!!! Happy FAWM 2017!

    Helloooo! Will be a sparse FAWM for me but maybe skirmishes can save me! πŸ˜€

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 30

    Looking forward to your stuff!

  • @rickamorphis  Jan 29

    Hi Eric, thanks for the note...yes, I'll be slinging it again this year, glad to see you will be too!

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 29

    Welcome back, can't wait to see what you create!

  • @marvsmooth  Jan 29

    Hey there Eric. Raring to go?

  • @kristian  Jan 29

    Great to see you again Mr! ooo modular! That stuff totally terrifies me.. I would end up having to live homeless in the streets collecting filter modules πŸ˜€ scary! hehe

  • @airbagtester  Jan 29

    I'll be around! Definitely listening and hopefully I'll write 10 or so... Good luck!

  • @kristi  Jan 29

    Hello Eric! I'm hoping to get that creative boost! It would be great to collab again this year!

  • @adnama17  Jan 29

    HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy February!
