Alyxander James 18


Chicago US   Jan 2018  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Queer folk musicians (and queer folks in general), the songwriting communities at the Old Town School of Folk Music and the Rocky Mountain Song School, my mental health, and so much more.

Pronouns: they/them/theirs or he/him/his

I’m a writer, musician, and knitter who is also queer, trans, and bipolar. Originally from Minneapolis, I’ve been in Chicago since 2012, where I live with my partner, @fecknom, who is also a knitter and musician.

I've been writing songs off an on for about 20 years, but I've been much more consistent about it in the last five, thanks in large part to songwriting classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music here in Chicago.

I'd be hard-pressed to name a single genre I don't like at least *something* from. Most of what I write is folky, but I enjoy listening to everything from classical music to death metal.

2018 was my first FAWM, and I'm so happy to be back for a second go-round!

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by my board and Happy FAWM! You’re making such great progress already this month and I look forward to hearing your new songs. I’ve been a little slow in listening and posting but will try to spend more time during the second 1/2 of the month.

    Thank you for your message! I sometimes wonder if anyone uses those cards. It means a lot to me that you have enjoyed them. Perhaps I'll be making those expansions later. 😀
