Artist Bio

Influences:   Chill Step, Trip Hop, Tribal Trap, Deep House, Chillgressive, Chill Hop, Electrostep, Psytrance, Baladi, musical scores, Industrial, EBM, Hard Rock, 90s and 00's Alternative Rock, international sounds, ambient.

A little mad, a little eccentric, and never taking myself too seriously. Artist, poet, philosopher, pagan.

I think this year I am going to try using some of my instruments instead of a crapella, and I don't plan on doing another 60 songs! ha!
Let's see, I've got a slide whistle, a djembe, a tambourine, some shakers and maracas, and this neat little balaphon that's kinda like a xylophone only it's little and wooden with bowls under the keys. I may even pull out the washboard, the spoons, crystal glasses, blow into a bottle, whatever it takes. ... SO we shall see where that goes.

Constructive criticism is always, always, valued! Help me learn! (I don't have a clue, hehe) ...
Beware the super rough demos 😉

Just for fun! I post my work under creative commons.

Always up for a collab, unconditional FAWM love!

    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

    Thanks for Swinging by and listening to “Shuttering up || Shutting down”. I like your train analogy, but in this instance would be more that the narrator is the Train, he’s rusted to the track, and being used for spare parts.

  • @cts  1 day

    I would need your vocal track, please! 😀

    Thanks for the comment on Fancy Car. I love seeing the way these things unfold. Also, good eye spotting “merry war” as one of the best lines in there, since I borrowed that phrase from Shakespeare!

  • @lanasolyluna 3 days

    Thank you so much for your comment. Going to listen to your stuff soon. Quite a prolific FAWM 😀

    Shortly after I recorded "What the heck was his name again?" I slept for 12 hours. I think this may explain why some of the tracks felt so weak. Still, though, there were a few (like the ones you mentioned) that turned out nicely. 😀

    Hey Visibly Distorted. Thanks for busting my Zong Skirmish / bad ad song. Thanks for the heads up I just added it to that forum. Well I've got some catching up to do you are a very prolific. Going to go listen to more of your stuff!!

    Regarding my missed skirmish, I didn't have one picked out. My alarm (that was muted thanks to Do Not Disturb on my phone being set for "Total Silence") was set to wake me a few minutes early. I was just going to head to Titular and look for something juicy. My later skirmish -- the "herding kittens" one -- was an inspired title/theme due to my children being awake.

    I would like to thank you very much for your beautiful comment! I was very happy to read it! 😀

    Exactly, every relationship must pass trough those social media things. 😀 Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  • @mungus  1 week

    Thanks for listening, glad you liked it, I enjoy tracks the keep folk on their toes

  • @moonraccoon 1 week

    Yes! I was a dedicated Adbusters reader for about a year, till it stressed me out too much. I've been a Buy Nothing Christmaser since about '04 😁

    Thanks very much for listening! ^.^ I'm glad you liked the stereo manipulation; I was skeptical about doing it as exaggerated as I did haha!

  • @idonotlikepeas 1 week

    Thanks for the comment! If you're serious about adding some electronic string instruments, the program I used for mine is actually a free thing called MuseScore (https://musescore.org/en). I've also used one called OpenMPT (https://openmpt.org/), which operates on different principles. Hope you find something that works for you!

    Thanks for your comment on The Perfect Fool. I am a bit of a fantasy nerd and have played my fair share of D&D (among other table top games), so that type of imagery does have a way of creeping into my lyrics when I least expect it to.

    Thanks for your comments on Rock It Out,

    Hey! Patreon is a sort of subscriber platform. It's like Kickstarter, but instead of people donating towards one big project, they subscribe to whatever you regularly create. So you might release one song a month to your Patrons (or more... or less... or any other art form), and they each get to decide how much they want to give you. It has a nice kind of "screw the labels" feel about it. 😁

    Hello Jacki, I'm a newb here at FAWM. @ductapeguy recommended I reach out to you, if I find the Wordsmith Muse to be playing shy this month. (I would've left a message the other day, but it felt weird to be a stranger leaving the first message on your soundboard.) Best of luck this month 😀

    Thanks a lot for your feedback! Happy FAWM to you too!

    Hi! Came here to watchlist you because your 3-part FAWMku delighted! Loving your instrument collection too! I posted one from my car once that featured a half-empty bottle of water for percussion and a drinking straw played like a bottle or pan pipe might be, changing the pitch by pinching it at different lengths. Time to play, with the heart of a child!!

    Hi Jacki. Save a dance or two for me. I love co-writing with you. Check out @moonraccoon He's a friend of mine from Elmvale. He's also a graphic designer and web cartoonist.
