Actually, I'm not sure... It could be from Victoria, British Columbia to St John's, Newfoundlands, for all I remember... But the "from pacific to atlantic" thing is for sure. And I'm pretty confident he didn't ride on a pedal boat. (Or did he, now ?)
Your music has a great energy in it, by the way. The kind of music I would take with me on such a trip !
Hey, thank you so much for stopping by and listening to Don't Let Your Heavy Heart Hold You Down. Congratulations on getting to 14 songs this year!
Ha ha yeah the synth groups can be fun, but sometimes really ridiculous and a lot of gatekeeping and rudeness. Thanks for all your sweet comments 😀
Yes, make yourself useful and rebrand. I actually honestly love the F.O.I.P. idea. Have the band wear black business suits (that way you don't have to worry about band member age/image since everybody looks good in a business suit me thinks) and you wear a pink business outfit. Think Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde. It would be a catchy band image. The don't smile idea is a must. Anyone that smiles is immediately terminated from the band and replaced by a crash test dummy.
Thank you so much for listening and your great comments. After taking a serious flattened hiatus I’m back and looking forward to listening to your songs. I have to say I find Area 51 of the Friendzone and You Didn’t Read the Ending (titles alone) compelling.
I've mostly lived in the southwest, but I spent last winter mostly in New Hampshire and Maine...... the far north can keep that getting dark at or before 3 o'clock crap 🤣 and I'm a night person. I didn't mind the cold but I don't think I could handle it always being dark even farther north.
Hi Amalea, thanks for the comment on my last song. Congratulations on crossing the finish line and I'll be listening to more of your snazzy tunes 😀
Thanks for your comments! Congrats on getting the thing done!
Jumped to your vids per above, will head back when have more time.
Awesome, you have The Cars as an influence. Fantastic band.
It's nice to know you're enjoying FAWM's wildlife!
It was nice to hear the story of your encounter with one of my kinfolk! I'm sure he meant nothing by the hissing! We do that sometimes. Other times we feint or play dead. My songs explain it all in much greater detail.
So, anyway, jes wanted to say "Hi". So, "Hi"!
So I actually haven't seen Blue Valentine either, lol. I think the lyrics are a really good play on taking the title at face value though, and it makes sense as a title because the whole story is kind of playing around with that idea.
Thanks for the feedback on "Velcro is Not my Friend." Another vote for some kazoo!
Thanks for your great comment. It was a fun song to write and put together. I'll be sure to come back and listen to your songs.
Dude! You just gave me the name of my next bite-sized tunes collection! "PC Fan On Overdrive". All songs are politically incorrect! Not too offensive of course but the idea is awesome. I'm so going to start this tonight. Make yourself useful and do the album cover. Yes, that means put down everything else and make this top priority dammit.
GAAH! Six new songs and I can't listen. I hate life right now. I'm sure it kicks ass though.
I appreciate the kind words on my tune! Yeah, the words did come to me on my drive. I went out because I hit a dead end with the other song I was working on. Maybe it was like a pressure cooker and getting some let the pent up energy out?
Thanks for the comment on Sussed Out! I actually haven't even played Among Us, but I can totally see how you would come to that conclusion from the lyrics. I really just named the song that since it uses a lot of suspended chords in the harmony 😂
I hate it when my candy bars melt.
Hi thanks for your comment on Emily on Paris. Its not just a piano i have an electric piano and it comes from mixed sounds like “italian piano” “grand piano” etc so some sound with some strings in the background . I also use a lot the piano peda that makes the sounds to stay little bit longer
I appreciate your kind words about my guitar playing! Fingerpicking is one of those things that sounds complex until you get the hang of it, lol! I'm sure you'd be able to get it down pretty quickly if you gave it a shot.
Thank you! To you, too!
Looking forward to hear what you make this year.
2021? hope to see you around!!
AMELEA IS AWESOME!!!!!!
(Let's rock this FAWM thing, k?)
