Artist Bio

Influences:   all or none

ok, i should explain my madcap strategy toward collaboration. i love it. i am trying to demo all of my songs as i hear them, eventually. so, if you hear a song that you want to realize, just ask me. i will chart it if it hasn't been already, and get my first impressions, and then leave you to your own interpretation-- i just want to chart it out in my own head before i hear your version. . music is meant to be viral. i just ask that you hit me up if you see something, before you do it. if it's identified as a favorite, chords are written and maybe rough mp3 field recordings made. so maybe that makes it even easier because i already have my impressions together. i might put up a version later in the month on a favorite, but i am still open to collaboration. i will never demo all of the lyrics i usually generate....

p.s.-- my location is SUPPOSED to be "middle of now here," but it corrects it to... well, you see that. no sense of zen with this computer....

    Timothy, thanks so much for your feedback on One Eye Open. the phrase 'showed the back of me' probably is British English meaning 'left you alone'. Turned my back on you, when I had gotten you to love me again. The whole song was inspired by another song I heard that had "You better sleep with one eye open" which I thought was terrible. Crass. Can't even remember who's song it was. (not on here)

    Loaded a song... Balloon
    For our collab. See what you can do.

    Hi there. I don't have your email, but this is my part of the exisic corpse

    Death by sword
    Honor rewarded
    Feast for the king
    Tradition carried on

  • @cicpisces 3 days

    Hi... I'm happy to write some lyrics. These collabs havent worked well for me. So would like to get one finished.

  • @charliecheney  6 days

    Hey thanks for the comment on St Vincent! I can't do demos this year unfortunately, I lost my voice, but that was a great suggestion to end on the first verse to reprise the title so I changed it. Thank you again.

  • @yam655 1 week

    I should have made a song about being Addicted to Addition. 😉 I could have pulled in all kinds of compulsive behaviors... Hmm...

  • @mikegtz  1 week

    Thanks for visiting our crazy little song and nice to meet you here.

  • @soulbird 1 week

    thanks for your feedback on 'blue valentine/cry me a valentine/valentine stay?"

  • @benjo  1 week

    Thank you for you feedback on my lyric, you really seemed to understand it, means a lot coming from you, thank you

  • @dutch1967 1 week

    Thanks for your thoughts on Don’t Come Knocking, Timothy. I sometimes have a hard time seeing songs (hearing songs?) from an outside perspective, that’s what the doubting over a possible bridge is from. I’ll leave the song as is.

  • @kc5 1 week

    Hey, thanks for taking a peak at my song. I always find your comments entertaining. At first when I read the “playful” bit, I thought “Hey! I can be playful”. Then I saw what you meant and now I say sheepishly with red cheeks, “no comment”. You are correct in that I didn’t set out with the intent of that being sub plot, but it didn’t get by me, either. I just left it cause , well...ya know....or maybe......you.....don’t.🤭

  • @tan482  1 week

    Oh thank you for your message re: random collab. So sorry to hear about your father, sending love xox

  • @chucknamaste 1 week

    I'll record a demo and post it either today or tomorrow!

  • @sph  1 week

    Hi, concerning "random collaboration" round 4. I already made music for lyrics by you and kahlo2013. Thanks for the effort!

  • @bithprod 2 weeks

    No worries! Hopefully 2 out of the 3 randoms will lead to something eventually. I'm always up for collabs, so you can put me down for all rounds. 😉 And from next weekend I'll also be able to do music if needed.

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Thanks so much for your that kind and thoughtful comments! I was very happy to read them!

  • @pambowen1 2 weeks

    Thanks for taking time to write such a detailed comment on "Fast Forward". Yes, I guess it does have too much female POV to be sung by a man. I have a hard time fulfilling "assignments" from co-writers; we just don't think alike. Did you hear Susan Cantey's version?

  • @wacha  2 weeks

    Thank you for the feedback on "Join Me in Death". This is definitely one I want to revisit when I have more time. I feel like there is a lot that can be done with the song beyond my demo. I will definitely take your suggestions into consideration when reworking it.

  • @dreamscuba  2 weeks

    Thank you for your very helpful and constructive comments on 'Forbidden Places'. The song started from messing with some loops in GarageBand and then morphed on my computer. Noted about spacing out and not being so busy...I think I will have to play with that on the song later.

  • @fearlessflight2014  2 weeks

    No rush, I’m so behind in all my collaborations this year because of touring.

  • @metalfoot  2 weeks

    Thanks for the kind comment on My Friend!

  • @chucknamaste 2 weeks

    We posted on each other's walls at the same time haha... I'm enjoying your lyrics for "Stickshift Blues" and "Thoughts and Prayers"! I also have had the title "Future Relic" floating around in my head for a few days if that inspires you... Is there a time limit for the collab? I've got a very busy weekend ahead of me, but I could probably wrap the track up by Sunday night

  • @chucknamaste 2 weeks

    Looking forward to collaborating with you! Do you just want to write some lyrics or would you like to sing on the track as well? I just posted a new instrumental track and you can use that if you'd like, or we can make a completely new one from scratch... Up to you! 😁

  • @pambowen1 2 weeks

    Thanks for reading and commenting on "Memento Mori." Yes, I like a jaunty, jingly meter for my gloomier subjects! LOL

  • @owl  2 weeks

    well hello there!

  • @mikeskliar  2 weeks

    thanks- best to you as well!!

  • @wacha  2 weeks

    Thank you for your kind works on "Adrift" , the "mmms" were a last minute addition when I went to record it. The instrumental section felts a little empty.

  • @lowhum 2 weeks

    Yeah, I'll be glad to hear your version as well - good luck with those drivers! I still think I can do a better take on the vocals - will try that if I find the time!

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Thanks for your observations on It Was on Fire - I did deliberately choose that effect to make it feel "claustrophobic" and it is awesome that you felt that. I will be back to check out your music - work demands I attend to the non-FAWM world for now...Cheers!

  • @brrrse  2 weeks

    Actually I didn't make it past the 1st week in any of the Berklee classes. The feedback I got on the assignments were from antagonistic bullies and I took their advice and quit the classes - The forums/classrooms were full of nothing but belligerent trolls - and all the material is available in books you can check out at the library - so I don't have much good to say about Berklee Online except that it led me here. I hope you got good things out of the courses.

  • @fearlessflight2014  2 weeks

    I will be able to make demos mid feb, just not at present. 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  2 weeks

    Ooh! That’s exciting... I will wait patiently. 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  3 weeks

    Hey there, I have music already for most of lyrics I've posted, just no means to make meaningful demos on the read. There are two I wrote in the skirmish that are less formed if either of them interests you. 'Spoon' and 'Lovely Red'. Let me know and I can add you as a collaborator.

  • @amusia 3 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words on my video game song!

  • @sheamiejay  3 weeks

    Just got your message about the collaboration. I have contacted my partner. What's next and when?

  • @odilongreen  3 weeks

    Thank you for your well-wishes, and look forward to your excellent lyrics... and maybe some demos...?

  • @arthurrossi 3 weeks

    Hey! Thanks for your message... Though not within the random challenge, but in general, I have been collaborating thus far with tootoobee, jamkar, w1n, andybalham, metalfoot, ampersandman and cts.

  • @michaelepic 3 weeks

    Absolutely man! I'd be happy to random collab on a rap jam!

  • @petra777  3 weeks

    Looking forward to hearing your autoharp, and always love me a lap steel!

  • @cindyrella  4 weeks

    Hi! Good to see you! Let's have a great one!

  • @valeriecox  4 weeks

    Hey! Hapoy FAWM. 😀 I use an app for iPhone called Best Prompter. It has scroll speed and you can change the text size. I like it lots.

  • @stephenwordsmith  4 weeks

    Yes, propriety. No doubt you remember the allegations from last year's 5090 that the organiser rigged the event so they could work with their lyricist of choice, which seems like considerably more effort and risk than simply asking them nicely in the first place.

  • @kc5 5 weeks

    Thank you for your word of encouragement, Tsu.

  • @timfatchen  5 weeks

    Roll the waves in!

  • @johnstaples  5 weeks

    Happy FAWM 2018! Hope you have a great one!

  • @ustaknow 5 weeks

    Hey thanks @tsunamidaily -- since there was a bit of discussion about feedback, if I do get any up, please feel free, comment-feedback. (In case unaware, --there seemed to be allot of, to give/not to give feedback 😀 unless specifically asked for? )

    The thing is, last month I engaged something that produced 11 song drafts... and struggling now to consider "music" for them, so not so sure I'll have to much of a presence here, or songs "be" from FAWM.

  • @kc5 5 weeks

    Hey, good to hear from you again! I’ll be popping in to check your lyrics out even though I might not always comment, I admire your clever lines.

  • @barbara  5 weeks

    Howdy! Very cool concept of collaboration you have outlined above... I wish you many happy favorites to come!! 😀

  • @brrrse  5 weeks

    Dude - there you are. Of course I'm gonna keep up with your writing - we do good things together 😀 I'll hit ya up. Happy FAWM.

  • @stuartbenbow  5 weeks

    Happy Fawming!

    Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018
