Artist Bio

Influences:   Mainly I think, "The Johns" - Hiatt, Prine, Richman. A little bit of Fred Eaglesmith and a sprinkling of Mark Knopfler here and there. I also like to think I'm influenced by Rick Rubin as well. And a little by my Dad.

First picked up a guitar at 15ish, started writing songs as soon as I knew chords. Played and wrote on and off (mostly off) for the next 30 years. Built a small humble recording studio in my basement, and started a small, inconsequential music label. I love working with other artists and creating music and sharing it with the world.

    Hey, there! i didn't think anyone was still listening. What terrific compliments, thank you very much! I played this song (badly) at a gig last weekend for the first time, so maybe it will be one I polish up for the future.

  • @ampersandman  Mar 8

    Thank you very much for your kind words on my song. Much appreciated!

  • @siebass  Mar 8

    Thanks for checking out I am Thinking of You. I think it's by far the best song I've ever written, I'm glad you were able to hear it. So much of my stuff is humor, but that one hits like a ton of bricks and is the one I'm most proud of.

  • @hummingbear Feb 26

    Thanks for your comment on "Insectivore" and sorry I, uh, disturbed your snack. Should I retitle it "Going on a Diet Song"? "It helps you stop eating and lose weight naturally." ; )

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 21

    Thanks for your encouraging comments and support on my various superskirmish ramblings this past weekend. It was great fun playing with you and the other folks for all those hours. Have a great week.

  • @dawn1 Feb 19

    Thanks for your lovely comment on 'The Play', I'm glad you like the lyric, I'll update you when I've done a demo 😀

  • @kathym  Feb 18

    I'm so far behind on songs and thank you's. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my super song. It was pretty hard to write so many words and stay away from cliches, so I kind of had to go there. But it got me up on the board. I've got listening to catch up on and will be doing some of that over the weekend. So I'll be popping in on you. 😀

  • @ihelen  Feb 6

    Thanks for commenting on my Souper song. Yeah, I was debating whether or not to write a song about food because it could be weird causing people to be hungry... but I was running out of time from the skirmish so I left it as it was. 😀

    Re: Super Wall "What software do you use to add the multiple windows ?"

    I bought powerDirector 14 last year for FAWM 2016 -- but never used it. I record the audio normally into sonar and used my android phone (first video) and my daughter's old iPhone for the last 2. I load the two (or three) video streams into PD 14 along with the mixed audio track and then get everything lined up. Create a master WMV file and then trim that and add title/credits to make the final wmv file. Not sure if that is the best way, but that's about it. It takes 10 minutes or so to produce the wmv output, so there is 20-30 minutes of sitting around waiting on the full processing! Down the road I will learn more editing/production tricks, but that will have to wait until FAWM is over. Thanks for all the comments!!

  • @aerlyn Feb 6

  • @jodv  Feb 4

    Thanks for checking out my "Ex-Centric" skirmish song 😀 I'll let my wife know that SOMEONE appreciates my puns!

  • @aprilm Feb 4

    My favourite things to do! I like songs that have some basis in real life lol Thanks for commenting!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 4

    Thanks for the nice comment Stevie! I miss Zevon. 😞

  • @dawn1 Feb 3

    Thanks for your comment on 'Ebonfyre the enchanted' - not being allowed to kill people in real life, I like to slaughter my head off in songs haha 😉

  • @ductapeguy  Feb 1

    Don't forget Cash, Rotton, and Entwhistle. Glad you are aboard for FAWM. I'm looking forward to your stuff.

  • @steviez  Jan 31

    Thanks @tamsnumber4 - unfortunately the real concept of Oktoberfest has been completely derailed over the last number of years by corporate greed and isn't much of a bavarian festival you're not missing much 😀 Thanks for the kind words, and I think I'm more looking forward to hearing everyone ELSE'S music rather than creating my own 😀

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 31

    Welcome! Oh how I wanted to go to Octoberfest when I lived in Erie! Hope you enjoy your FAWM and I hope to hear your creations!!

  • @brrrse  Jan 30

    Welcome to FAWM 2017. Time to make music! 😀
