Artist Bio

Influences:   Musical tastes all over the map - old REM, Beatles, The Ventures, Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello, Frente, Throwing Muses, My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Cocteau Twins, The Sundays, Echo and the Bunnymen, Regina Spektor, Velvet Underground, The Cure, Devo, Bob Mould, Indigo Girls, Laurie Anderson, King Crimson, Rush, Yes, Chicago, Kate Bush, Joy Division, Led Zep, The Jam, John Wesley Harding, Peter Mulvey, Martin Sexton, Suzanne Vega, Dave Brubeck, Buddy Rich, Maynard Ferguson... there are a lot of musical styles in my head mixing around.

Pronouns -> He/His/Him

I've been home-recording music for many years, with music that covers styles all over the map.

This last Spring, @guatecoop, @helenseviltwin and I made an album! It is called Distant Social Club. It was super fun to make and it is free if you'd like it:
https://distantsocialclub.bandcamp.com

Check out my dad's (@srcoops) and younger brother's (@guatecoop) pages! @srcoops writes a ton of lyrics and we've collaborated on a lot of songs. He's very open to people using his lyrics, and had lots of collaborations last year, so let him know if you'd like to use them!! Also check out @kovbleu and @slawbleu - they are in Treading Bleu with my younger brother and me. ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh, and I run this thing on FAWM called the 4-Track Challenge, where people mail cassettes to each other and add one track at a time. Sound fun? It is!! Let me know if you want in and check out the songs at @fourtracktape

I do a lot of instrumental music, since I don't write lyrics, so if you have an idea, let me know. I can't guarantee a collaboration will work out, but I usually do a lot of collaborating. I do collaborations as a co-writing project and consider them complete when I find the one that fits. I've had multiple versions of songs from various people, during FAWM, but the one that I end up posting is the official song, in my mind. I'm always finding amazing new people on FAWM!

I have used some MIDI keys the past few years, but most of the time, what you are hearing is me actually playing the instruments live, including drums, one track at a time. I write songs part by part and never quite know where they are headed, and very often get very deep in layers and atmospheres. I love painting with sound.

This is my 11th FAWM. It's always wonderful and something I look forward to. It's the best part of Winter! (...the only good part of winter?) ๐Ÿ˜‰

All of my recordings, FAWM and otherwise, are on my bandcamp page

    Instagram works best when you only post one kind of content in the ver same way. The way I use it, I won't even get followers. I don't care ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Enjoy your weekend!

    P.S. Some pepper art I did some years ago ^^
    https://ibb.co/pJSvv9W

  • @nadine 3 weeks

    How cool is that! Great tasty artwork! I hope you have an instagram account for your salsa creations! These are neat and would have a lot of followers โ™ฅ I also like some spuce added by red peppers, but I'm out with the greens (too sour) and the very tiny round ones (too hot). So creative - Keep it up!

  • @nadine 3 weeks

    I always wanted to ask you if your logo is made of tiny peppers and pepperoni. You love hot stuff? Do they grow in your garden?

  • @gm7  6 weeks

    Very true.

  • @gm7  6 weeks

    Thx...I'm not one to impose...my mother taught me that...it's The Canadian way. ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I may take you up on your gracious offer...thank you very much very kind of you!!
    A US-CDN song collab! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Just checked my emails. There will be already a collab on "Promise". Thanks for your offer! We will work together someday, that's sure!

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Now I know where to start, thanks! And also for stopping by at my other profiles. I enjoy blogging about songwriting! Just watchlisted you.

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Thank you so much for your comments! Im glad you are so open minded! That's rare these days ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Pyromancer
    Never listened to Jethro Till. Wasn't it that classic rock / prog rock band of the 70s with the iconic flute? I may listen to them just to figure out why so many people drew the connection.
    I am looking forward to the final version. Heard some sketches of the bass yesterday, guitars and maybe also a bagpipe (!!!) and violin (!!!) will follow. We are experimenting with the tuning and microphones. It's gonna be hell of a fun mixing the real stems in spring or summer.

    Promise
    Thanks a lot here! I am stuck with the lyrics and vocals. Maybe this song has more potential than I thought, so I'd like to give it a try. I received a request concerning guitars two days ago, but I haven't checked the mails today. Let's see what happens. I'll tell you as soon as I know if somebody's in. Even if not I'm pretty sure that there will be plenty of projects in the future! In any case we should exchange the mail addresses.

    All Hallows Eve
    Wow that gives me a lift! Didn't expect you like this harsh electronic sounds! This is where I came from. Nah nearly not exactly that genre but the neighbouring trance, hardtrance and hardhouse stuff. I let out my anger on this one.

    P.S. Your brother will apply some magic on "Going my way". I am looking forward!

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Ridiculous? I think these hair spray metal bands don't take themselves serious ๐Ÿ˜† You can listen the fun you had during recording.

    My FAWM was also trying lots of genre I never did before (aggrotech, folk metal, symphonic metal, brit pop, some weird trap/rnb inspired pop). Especially that folk metal song Pyromancer was fun, because I've never written medieval lyrics before and these just came out of sudden. All people involved have lots of fun so the outcome just cold be great! I am looking forward to finish all these experiments in an awesome manner later the year!

    Long story short. If you always stick to your home you will miss lots of songwriting and playing techniques. I could have produced dance and trance forever, but then I'd have missed all these crazy chord progressions. I am having so much fun with different kinds of pop and rock music, that I'll probably never return again. Who knows what's happening next FAWM? Will I get the blues?!

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Your acoustic version of "Heavy Metal Valentine" is so fun and well produced. I enjoyed this one more than the original. What a pity you can't list it officially.

  • @yarimurray  7 weeks

    Thanks for listening to That Sound In Your Head and for your kind comments. I love the DMBL pedal. I use it as an always on boost in the front of the signal chain. Really provides clarity and articulation to the tone Nice to hear that the company is socially aware and active. I may look into other of their offerings.

  • @audrey  7 weeks

    Thanks for the listens and kind comments. I appreciate it.

  • @sw1n3flu  7 weeks

    Have had it since 2009/10 maybe? Got it new for ยฃ149 or something similarly cheap - has been used on plenty of fawm tracks and on stage with a couple of bands ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tamsnumber4  7 weeks

    Thanks for your comments on my song "Blue Snow" and collab song "Fades to Gray", I really appreciate it!

  • @crisp1  7 weeks

    Thanks for the comments on St. Louis Shakedown. If you're still around, give a listen to Ain't Gonna Get Any Better: https://fawm.org/songs/116818/

  • @jwhanberry  7 weeks

    Thanks for all your comments on my tunes. "Mr. Fortune" was not done in even close to an hour. Not a skirmish tune. I have been fascinated by the huge collection of H.G. Fortune synths. They produce complex moving sounds and are available free on various sites. The first I tried was STS-33, possibly still my favorite. I only use the presets. You could go nuts trying to figure out all those dials!
    I'm sorry to say that AFAIK there are no recordings of The Fabulous Esquires, my high school surf band. I'm still in touch with those guys so I'll ask them. I didn't think to do a surf tune this time around. I'm thinking 15/8 might work.

  • @mikeb 8 weeks

    Thanks for the comments on my last collab with Tammy, Fades to Gray.

  • @petemurphy  8 weeks

    John! Yes! I would love to see you when you come to England!

  • @ampersandman  8 weeks

    Hey, thank you so much for listening! Unfortunately I don't have much time for FAWMing these days, but I'll have to listen to some of your work soon, seeing you've had quite a successful month.
    xx

  • @karlsburg25  Mar 13

    that is bang on matey. The headmaster or "Head" as he was always known. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @highmountain Mar 10

    Thanks, ZeCoop for your comment! Just now I noticed it's extremely cold in my apartment. Could need a campfire! (Or better, I should just turn on the radiator.)

  • @gm7  Mar 10

    Thx for the vote of convenience in my lyrics..bonus !!!.
    I think @marthie did most of the heavy lifting..credit to her!
    I gave her a blank canvas and she painted the picture.
    can't wait for you to be retired in Oct...look out next FAWM you will have so much pent-up musical idea...woo !

  • @gm7  Mar 10

    Thx for the comments on It's All Right. To tell you the truth, to do the remix on this song, I had to learn the song again..cuz i had forgotten the unusual chord progression..embarrassing!!๐Ÿค”
    I still have 5 or 6 old tapes to recover and there could be another gem in there.
    Thx. again

  • @gm7  Mar 9

    Thx for listening to my eclectic music repertoire this FAWM. I enjoyed your multiple faceted music and your many collabs. Hope to see you back next year. Stay safe fellow FAWMer .
    I will stay around until April 14th I have 544 comments and i am hoping to reach 700...lots of great music to listen to!!

  • @tangle  Mar 8

    Yikes thank you for alerting me to how quickly FAWM is shutting down this year. I wrote lyrics and a melody the day you posted Time To Appreciate. Will have lots of time to record next week and will send to you!

  • @lenigmusx1  Mar 8

    Thank you for checking out my tunes! You have had a very productive FAWM as well. Iโ€™ll get caught up on my listening but what Iโ€™ve checked out so far has been awesome as always.

  • @gm7  Mar 5

    Thx...who doesn't love some fuzz. I played that with an Epiphone Special II..the red mahogany version so nice to look at... thru my Fender Ultra Chorus 112 with some distortion and then into a free guitar vst plugin.
    Good luck with your song and congrats at getting 33 songs..holy poop as Opossum would say!!!! My wife loves him..The Snarlin' Darlin' song in particular.
    your up and at it early today!!

  • @sherrycanary  Mar 5

    Hey Zee Thank you for being you!!
    I knew you were cheering me on, and having my connections FAWM and something I really wanted to do really helped me heal probably faster than I might have otherwise.
    Really glad you liked my songs.
    Now to check you out here. What a FAWM you had, a heart big enough to care about others with all that you do!

  • @kathym  Mar 5

    Thank you SO much for your great comments on "If I Could Live at the Zoo". I plan on having some fun with this song and will be taking all comments to heart as I go back and work on it. Your time and support are truly appreciated, zecoop. I'm trying to catch up on overdue thank you notes. I plan on hearing a few more of your family's offerings, too. I'm glad to have found you folks.

  • @br0th3rh00d Mar 4

    Thank-you for commenting on my Ballad of Joan and Harry. ๐Ÿ˜Š Appreciated it!

  • @gm7  Mar 4

    I will take that under advisement. Maybe I will call the album:
    Eclectic Songs Vol1. This way everyone will be waiting for my sequel album called; Eclectic Songs Vol2.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • @radiobenedetto  Mar 4

    So glad to hear that you appreciated the guitar on Midnight Oil. This has been a little side preoccupation of mine. I've always thought it's such a shame that bossa nova gets relegated to the elevator. The chord voicings and songwriting are so amazing. At a certain point it clicked for me that if I just stop trying to play a real bossa nova but modify it slightly to more of a straight 4/4 beat, the pedal motion on the thumb gives you a great kick drum and the fingers give you a nice snare to work with using the pallette of beautiful jazz chords that could work with more accessible up beat electronic music. I've always heard this in my head when I play by myself but this is the first time I really had the confidence and took the time to put the electronics to it properly.

  • @radiobenedetto  Mar 3

    Thx for the kind words on carousel and weary as a clock. Iโ€™ve been digging your work on so many collaborations. How is that you seem to be everywhere at once!? Truly prolific!

  • @johnstaples  Mar 3

    This. This right here. Cracked...me...up! I had a similar reaction!

  • @fuzzy  Mar 3

    That's a lot of teachers!
    You dodged that bullet, then! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @fuzzy  Mar 3

    Good, I'm glad you're enjoying SIANspheric!
    There is so much great music out there!

  • @loveonamixtape  Mar 3

    So glad to have you be a part of my FAWM, too! And absolutely, I would love to keep collabing! You've got my email now, so you know where to find me anytime -- and I've got yours! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @richaaaay  Mar 2

    Bummer to see that totally inappropriate forum post by mr hollow. You respond to him with kindness then get whiplashed with anger.

  • @balancelost  Mar 2

    I did use to have a 4-track back in the day but I sold it to @sailingmagpie once I discovered computer recording. I think unless fate intervenes my tape days are probably behind me, but it does look fun.

  • @grenzgaengerin Mar 2

    Thank you very much for comment <3

  • @fearlessflight2014  Mar 2

    Thanks SO much for listening to so much of my music this FAWM and making so many warm and generous comments. You are such an awesome person AND musician and Iโ€™m glad I met you.

  • @vivalarayna Mar 2

    THE ROSEMARY DIDN'T DESERVE TO GO OUT LIKE THAT!!

  • @piney  Mar 2

    I have a feeling we will be friends for infinity and beyond, even if one day we decide to quit music and start underwater basket weaving, I think we would have just as much fun! I am grateful for you and I will def let you know if sparks hit me, in terms of inspiration. If actual sparks hit me I probably wouldn't take the time to message you because I should probably get out of whatever situation that is, hehe. Hope 2021 treats you well and i'll see you around!

  • @piney  Mar 2

    Congrats on another absolutely epic FAAWM win! We are the champions my friends. we will keep FAWMing til the end! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @n1742  Mar 1

    Thanks for the very positive comments about the shuffle song. Nice to know youโ€™re a fellow trombonist. Really enjoyed dragon duel. Such a great guitar sound. Iโ€™ll have a listen to some more.

  • @richaaaay  Mar 1

    Thanks so much to listening and commenting on a few of my songs. So glad I stumbled onto FAWM this year. It's filled such a void for me. So much talent on here but it's the community part that was really such a pleasant surprise. The collaborations, supportive comments, prompts, weekly challenges, skirmish events. So great...I'm just marveling at the number of songs you've posted and how so many were collaborations. I'm gonna have to dive in a little more...

  • @moonraccoon  Mar 1

    Ah, those charts are great! I expect I'll use a capo and transpose to catch all those flat chords (might have to transpose further to fit my vocal rage -- both are easy to do). Thanks!

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 28

    YES PLEASE - I've been working on lyrics, so a cheatsheet for the chords on Polar Bear Waltz will deffo help ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 28

    Ah same to you matey and can't wait to catch up on your ones. What a treat i still have in store. wooohooo

  • @tangle  Feb 28

    Okay cool! I have lyrics started but things will be finished post fawm if that's alright. Will send your way in the next week or two.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 28

    Oh I Know like to add a bit of fun - and give alex a bit of a rev up ha ha

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 28

    just wanted to check if you are ok for me to use heavy metal valentine on my podcast- i will check with Alex as well but we talk regularly and i often use his songs

  • @sueawesome Feb 27

    I didnโ€™t have a melody other than the dreaming beginning part that went right along with your guitar. but yeah thatโ€™s not who I was I was thinking of lol

  • @metalfoot  Feb 27

    Great job in the castle party!

  • @sueawesome Feb 27

    I can think of one that doesnโ€™t need to be found. sheโ€™s such a rare talent and a favorite of mine.

    I canโ€™t imagine anyone being able to do a melody to lyrics they didnโ€™t write while putting it to music they didnโ€™t do. itโ€™s such a tall order but it really would be cool. maybe the universe will pull that one star into alignment.

    glad you liked it! now I can finish catching up on the rest of your stuff ๐Ÿ˜

  • @theodamus  Feb 27

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments on Skinny Jeans, One Day I Should Learn to Play the Guitar, Time Blind, When it all Blows Over, Treat the Symptoms, Cold, Birds, and Donโ€™t Look Down - thatโ€™s eight (EIGHT!) amazing comments and with 26 on the board I donโ€™t know how you find the time but it is so appreciated โค๏ธ Thank you! And yes extra words might be my strong point but breathing Iโ€™m still working on๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @sueawesome Feb 27

    I just passed go and didnโ€™t collect $200 (I didnโ€™t want to bug you in an email so I just posted it ๐Ÿ˜‚)

  • @thedutchwidows  Feb 27

    The vocals in a language I don't understand gives it an air of mystery that Elizabeth Fraser gave the Cocteau Twins, and maybe the slightly wobbly guitars and complex interweaving vocal patterns are similar. But dissecting it like that sounds reductive, when it stands on its own as a superb piece.

    I've enjoyed the songs of yours I've heard this year. You inspired me to fetch a 12 string acoustic out of a dark cupboard and give it a thrash. I've not captured the bright zing that you do - think I might need a better mic - but I enjoyed it enough (and liked the results enough) to maybe not put it back in the cupboard just yet!

  • @tangle  Feb 26

    That photo of you and Tom is a treasure. Just listened to "Fake Smile" on Bandcamp. Love it! What a great collab between you and Karl. Floating in "Doorway to Wholeness" now. Powerful stuff. I think the opportunity to collaborate with others musically and simultaneously process is such a gift.

  • @tangle  Feb 26

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments on Francis. I'm so sorry to hear of your huge loss as well. Music can be so helpful in processing that. Are your FAWM songs from last year posted somewhere public? Would love to revisit them. I'm very behind on listening this year and am looking forward to digging into all your tunes. Big hugs to you as well. <3

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 26

    Apparently, it was originally a British game and the name came from an amalgamation of Clue and Ludo, but the latter game wasn't well known in the states, so they just called it Clue. It predates Inspector Clouseau by about 20 years, and was invented in WW2, apparently. I have learned things!

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 26

    Yep - it's Cluedo over here. Not sure why it's different, but I only knew it was different in the US because of the film, "Clue".

  • @lanasolyluna Feb 26

    Ooh I forgot about the polar bear song! Currently brooding over a tequila and tonic. We'll see how the next day goes ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you're doing ok! I am looking forward to listening to some of your tracks over the next few days.

  • @ndavies  Feb 26

    Autoharp is pretty neat! I picked mine up at Old Town School of Music in Chicago. I've got a piezo pickup taped to the inside, so typically I record it with both that and a mic. But the pickup can also output to my guitar pedals/amp. Just food for thought ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @fuzzy  Feb 25

    Just listened to both of @deli's tunes; you are right, I loved em!

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 24

    I have done nothing that you haven't done to yourself.
    I stand by Pete Seeger 100%.
    Good Day Sir

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 24

    Go for it! I'll find time

  • @loveonamixtape  Feb 24

    Eee just gave it a quick listen and am digging it! Looking forward to starting work on it tomorrow and should get you something early Thursday, hopefully! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

  • @vomvorton  Feb 24

    Oh yeah, there it is on eBay! Going into my cart! And there's the email confirming... wait what's happening? Hehe at that price how could I resist!?

  • @vomvorton  Feb 23

    I put the country tag in because I thought I'd managed to include some country influences in the instrumentation and harmonies but every time I mention country I get people telling me the song isn't country ๐Ÿ˜ญ I thought maybe with a real live American singing I might get away with it this time. Nope, comment #1 ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  • @loveonamixtape  Feb 23

    No no, overwhelm me, please! I am having a BLAST this year doing so many collabs. I desperately miss being in a band and getting to work off of people like this and would LOVE to collab again, so if you have something, please do send it my way!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 23

    Very good point with the Bum note John. I should have said it was intentional ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 23

    100% Pete Seeger inspired

  • @berni1954  Feb 23

    Thanks for your brilliant comments on "The Shadow of Time" - I spent WAY too much time on it - but I am pleased with it, in the end. Your praise of the guitar work was particularly helpful, since I have only been attempting to concentrate on lead solos in recent times and that comment has boosted my confidence.

  • @tangle  Feb 23

    Thank you for your kind comment! I love Merilee's cello magic too. Thanks also for the answer about tagging collaborators. I wasn't sure how that worked.

  • @mikeb Feb 23

    Thanks for the comment on my latest rock opera song!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 22

    Aw, thank you so much for your lovely comment on Tell Me (Forever) - itโ€™s gone somewhat under the radar, so especially grateful!

  • @kajati Feb 22

    Dude the result was amazing, I mean it was 1984 and that was now 37 years ago. In fact I have decided to set up the project again. I will be building a web page that we can use as a portal linked to dropbox folders where audio stems can be left for people to use and bounce off.
    I'll keep you posted !!

  • @joy212  Feb 22

    Don't worry about it! It's a low-key thing.

  • @mattoxic  Feb 21

    hey, thanks for taking the time to listen and commenting. Really appreciated, and that's praise indeed coming from you. I'm grateful for the collaboration with @kajati, these grains of songs I have are given some backbone and direction and can finally get finished.

  • @kajati Feb 21

    Man I wish I could fawm with more people, I just am so pushed for time these days but I love the idea of the four track. In 1985 we set up something similar called logistic services. We had a tascam reel to reel and we did a similar thing, invite diverse people to add tracks over something they had never heard, getting some amazing results. Keep at it sounds like you have real family project here. I have a couple of tracks with my daughter singing which were real fun

  • @natalie  Feb 21

    Thanks for your lovely comments on โ€œNot a Word.โ€ Iโ€™m behind on my listenings, too, but I look forward to catching up and hearing more of your songs! @karlsburg25 has always spoken so highly of you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @berni1954  Feb 20

    Glad you liked my "Sailing Away" That's the Nth time I have been compared with Jethro Tull this FAWM - Luckily they are one of my favourite bands, so I'm taking that as high praise indeed.๐Ÿ˜

  • @berni1954  Feb 20

    Thanks for your wonderfully positive comments on my collab with Liz "Linger"

    I liked your "Lost Spaceman" track on the single synth challenge.

  • @owl  Feb 19

    I would be delighted! I have several other collabs first in the queue so I may not be able to get to it right away, but send it over when you're ready and I'll get ideas simmering ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 18

    Thanks! The twist in Hedged was fun to write.

    Hey, one of the advantages of working from home, right?
    On the Zoom/Teams/Skype calls with your coworkers, with a nice blue shirt on top and the ol' Spandex pants down below... ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Feb 18

    Thanks very much!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 18

    Hey! I have a vague idea but have been flat-out on another collab with a tighter deadline, hopefully all opening up to work on other things this weekend!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 18

    Ha ha, thanks so much for your comment on Trigger You, and for the great drum track you created - it totally made it!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 18

    Thx @zecoop they were great drums, kept me focussed through some tricky chords! Loved having 3 players in the game! Almost a group!

  • @vivalarayna Feb 18

    Thanks for your kind words on "I'm Getting Through", your good nature and love of assembly instructions, and otherwise being one of the brightest parts of the past 10 days. I'll be sure to check out your bandcamp albums!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 17

    Hey! Be sure and tag me in when ya get that hair band together; I'm gonna wanna hear that!

  • @sciren  Feb 16

    No worries! Work is the worst. There's still plenty of time, though! Thanks for thinking of me again. I really appreciate you reaching out and offering feedback on my solo stuff!

  • @vivalarayna Feb 16

    WELL, I GUESS YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THAT SOONER, ZE!!!

    LOL, thanks for the much needed laugh today. It's been a gift. Thanks also for your kind comments on "Politics of the Betrayed" and "Sanitized for Your Oppression". I'm immensely proud of both and feel like they mark huge progress in my writing style, so I'm very glad to hear they're resonating with you. They're definitely on the short-lived of tunes I hope to demo. Still 2 weeks left, right??

    Thanks for your kind comment on my collab with Rob!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 15

    Hiya John,
    Yes, the heatwave email is the correct one.
    Hope you and the family are ok.

  • @vomvorton  Feb 15

    Just listening for the first time at the same time as you posted that comment on my page. Spooky!

    I like the vibe! I will see what I can come up with.
