Barry Goldman 16


Ontario Canada   Dec 2017

Artist Bio

Influences:   Barry Goldman

Hello, I am Barry Goldman the Canadian one man band from Northwestern Ontario who smashes things until songs appear. I have been making music for a year and a half now, just cranking the tunes out in my basement with a Rock Band mic. I have made 12 albums to date.

My idea is to just make a lot and not worry. Maybe one day I'll be in a band, but doing things yourself has it's perks. My Karelian and Abruzzian ancestors could only dream of the majesty and grace of Barry Goldman and his songs about Love Live, Tims and perogies.

I like to make comics as well and hope to get drawing again. I sometimes make songs on my character Midnight Stella, I have two albums, Magnus Bridge & Call Of Mugi, of a possible trilogy in that confusing story.

FAWM 2017 : 18 Tracks
50/90 2017 : 50 Tracks

I'm not big on collabs so much, unless we both sing on a track. I like to save my music for my own songs, but I really like to make tracks where I'm singing with someone else as it feels more like a collab should to me. Whether I make the music or vise versa.


    Leave a message. Log in to FAWM or sign up first!

    Hi Barry. You're welcome. It's a good album and I liked it. I'll be active in Fawm in June. Then I have time to finally demo my six placeholders and give some comments back. In July 50/90 Challenge starts! Hope you have a nice summer.

    Barry - sorry, March has been a killer month for me and it doesn't look like letting up any time soon. I've not managed more than a couple of good listens to your album, but I can tell you I enjoyed what I heard. Sorry to disappoint.

    Thank you for the comments. I appreciate your critique on my composition part. I wrote this song with intention to sing and play simultaneously. When I recorded the song it was very difficult to do that. So, I decided to record separately. It was a mistake to do a pickup beat for each verse. I also realized the bpm wasn't right for the song because the lyrics were too long for the song (Not that's a bad thing of course, I feel even more guilty for cutting the wonderful lyrics). All of this lead to problems with the melody and singing.

    I forgot to mentioned in my liner notes that this was the first time I've ever set music to someone's lyrics. Heck, I can't recall a time where I set music to my own lyrics!

    I'm surprised to be getting any positive comments like this. I was expecting either negative comments or no comments. Anyway I'm glad to learn it wasn't a bad song after all!

  • @ayehahmur  Mar 5

    Cheers, Barry, yeah - that'd be great. I've not given any real thought to selecting or ordering my FAWM songs yet, but if you can give me tonight to sort that out I'll let you know.
    I'll get on to yours after work today.

  • @roadreg Mar 1

    Thanks so much for the feedback you've left on my crappy songs over the past month! I really appreciate it!

    Hi Barry!

    Hope you’re still willing to help me out with the chorus for my rap. 😀 I probably won’t be able to finish it within the deadline, but I’ve made a placeholder for it. You can sing the notes of the chorus pretty much the way you want, but you need to follow my lead when it comes to beat/rhythm/stress, as I have to mix together several vocal tracks.

    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for giving my "Spanish Inquisition" song a spin.
    I really appreciate your comments.

    One of the most worrying aspects of the situation here is the awful silence on the issue. You just don't hear that much about the situation here unless there is some incident involving police violence. The media used to be at the forefront of the waves of change I have seen over my life - denouncing injustices wherever they had emerged. Now, it seems obvious the oligarchs have total control over the mass media and only allow issues which serve their purposes to get any major coverage. That there are political prisoners in an EU country should be on the front page of every newspaper in Europe. It isn't. Spain has put pressure on any country that has expressed any support for the beleaguered Catalans.

    Sadly, I think Spain is a test case, if they get away with it here, then the totalitarian aspects of the Spanish Government's actions will be rolled out throughout Europe. While Europ

    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!!

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 26

    Cheers for those comments, Barry. JOI - yeah, I was unsure whether to go there but I figured if someone already knew what it meant it was probably okay...

    And ABR - aye, I'm pretty pleased with how that came out. But it is it difficult subject matter and I'm relieved I don't seem to have gone over the line into insensitivity.
    Thanks again.

  • @haim  Feb 25

    Hi Barry! Thanks for the nice comment on my skirmish song "Goodbye Tank". I appreciate it. And - Congratulations on reaching 14 songs!

  • @benbarden Feb 2018

    Thank you for the comment on "Darkside" 😀

    Thank you!

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 2018

    Thanks for the comments, Barry. Much appreciated.

  • @sph  Feb 2018

    Hi there, thanks for listening to "Loosening", my bass loop tune.

  • @fruitlessworship Feb 2018

    Hey, thanks for checking out Prosthetic Emotions! The guitar I used on it is actually an old squier strat I got from a pawn shop for like 50 bucks (my first guitar, actually), but I can straddle some pretty killer tones out of it. I used the mustang on Lack Of Empathy however, and I'll definitely be using it more.

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 2018

    Thank you for your comments on 'Celestial Promises'.

  • @alonetogether  Feb 2018

    I never really got into Love Live but yeah absolutely everything you said about K-on is why i love it!
    im just a big fan of cute anime in general its hard to pick a favourite

  • @faststrings Feb 2018

    Hey Barry, my friend thanks for the comment on the song. Yeah, this guy has a broken stove now! Thanks Barry, your friend Jimmy

  • @alonetogether  Feb 2018

    Thanks for the comment on my song! Hope your fawm goes well, and a huge shout-out for loving K-on it's the best 😁

  • @akokulit Feb 2018

    Heeey! Thanks for checking out my song! Appreciate your comments. See you around. I'll definitely listen to your songs this month. 😀

    Thanks for riding with me!

  • @plainwhitetoast  Feb 2018

    Heya, Thanks for the comment! Hotter than Hell was the era I was thinking. I don't think I got very close, but it's something.

  • @jpt  Feb 2018

    Story is real, guitar picture (to the left) is the Martin I wrote about. Today my oldest daughter called this song "the soundtrack of her childhood". They say write about what you know. This fit the bill.

  • @mannon Feb 2018

    Oh man Paradise Kiss is soooo good. I was really sad with how short it was because I was really enjoying it. Plus they used Franz Ferdinand with the ED which was an instant win for me haha

  • @mannon Feb 2018

    The funny is I've heard of most of those show but haven't seen many of them. Everyone keeps telling me to watch Gurren Lagan but I just can't seem to get into it haha.

    Oh man I love Nana though, the music was really inspiring to me as a kid. Plus that's the kind of show you can sit down and just at the characters. Throughout the whole thing I was scream "Don't you dare Hachi!!!! Get with Nobu!!!" Lol

  • @mannon Feb 2018

    *high fives* Oh man the Angel Beats OST is still one of my favorites til this day.

    I have too many favorites to count: BECK, Blood +, Air Gear, Higashi no Eden, Fate Stay Night series..........and many more haha.

    How about You? 😁

  • @mannon Feb 2018

    *random comment from a fellow anime fan* Haven't watched K-on but I will say the OST is good. If you like that, Haruhi Suzumiya
    "God Knows" is also really good. 😃
