Hello, 2020. I've got some exciting projects this year. I wrote and mixed the original songs for the podcast Hit the Bricks (listen to the first episode at https://hitthebricks.com/episode1 or wherever you get your podcasts!) I'm also trying "for real this time" to get an album together and on streaming services by... Novemberish? Or at least an EP. At least an EP.


I'm a multi-instrumentalist from northeast Ohio. My main songwriting instrument is the ukulele (I got a concert, baritone, baritone, electric, and banjo-) but you might hear an accordion or trumpet in there from time to time.

Consider my FAWM songs under a Creative Commons 3.0 license unless otherwise specified. That means you can share them, remix them or use them in other creative projects, as long as you attribute them to me and do not use them for commercial purposes. (Also, let me know if you use them. I want the glory.) I would like that to stand for collaborations as well, unless we work something else out.

    Also, I doubled the guitar track and spread it out to both L/R and left a single vocal track in the middle. All of the tracks are using the “Lead vocals” treatment, but there’s added echo and reverb dialed in on the vocals and on the imported ThumbJam track. I guess I didn’t say yet that this is in GarageBand on the iPhone.

    What a cool comment! I love that. Probably the closest you can get is to watch ‘Song of the Sea’.
    The atmospheric sound is a recording I cooked up in the ThumbJam app. I explained it in more detail over on downburst’s soundboard, if you want to read that. It’s a neat little app with a lot of flexibility to alter the pre-set sounds to your own liking.

    Thanks so much for your feedback on Viriditas and for sharing that Dylan Thomas line. I'd never heard it and really like it. Glad to find another Hilde fan. 💚

    Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean" and collab "Who We Really Are"!

    Ooh I love toy phones so so much. I used to use them in my live performance a lot. Glad I'm not the only one contemplating these questions and unfriending people who just can't comprehend human decency. Sing on!

    Thanks for your kind comment on "This Promise." Yay for first song twinsies!

  • @tangle Feb 3

    Thank you for the feedback on "Sycamore Stars". Bubble universe was totally what I was shooting for with the water bowl so I'm so glad it resonated for you that way.
