Influences: Billy Joel, Elton John, Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles, Musical Theater
I love to sing! I've dabbled in musical theater and the occasional ditty for years. More recently, I've been trying to teach myself piano with a goal of being able to write and perform my own music.
I'm working on making songwriting part of my daily practice and seeing what comes of it.
This is my first FAWM! My goal here is to write more and get some songs out in the open. Thanks for listening!
When you comment "what is my style", - rings a bell. So, in case not just in passing, - you can find that out here, over time. E.g., I had a few tracks, old and then redone and asked - 1) keep or delete, or other, 2) which version, 5 yo or redone, or over-worked-mixed one 😀
As folks build that kind of contact and know what "good", or "to do" means to them, you can get some short, but meaningful response. I do/have. So, like if I you knew what I mean when use certain words, - like that. Otherwise if someone says "zyx" it could be misunderstood or bothersome, even.
Anyway, you're new and it a "serious hobby" obviously, so, there you go. Or, ignore it 😀 hahh, it may be useless to. Like telling someone what kind of underwear they should wear, - useless.
RE: Chance - Hey Brian! Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to my track and leave a comment. 😀
Yes, with that NSFW, you have to learn how to right about all the phuck'n scheit in your life using you're own dialect 😀 hahhh. Well, the ones who feel the need. Some use stuff that may be "funny" (humor is tough), like what the hello did you say; don't be an ashehole and other onlineguageisms.
oh that makes sense if Schwartz is an influence you've worked with. when I was a young performer one of my favorite songs to sing was a kind of obscure song from the baker's wife called "Meadowlark'.
Thank you for your comments on the Hawk and the Sparrow.
Thank you for your lovely words for my song "No One Told Us". I appreciate it and was surprised what you heard in your head vs what I did. Thats why I love lyric writing so much, you constantly get surprised by other peoples interpretations.
thank you for listening to Red Cloak--i wish I was a better keyboard player so I could play it live!! thanks for the compliment...I have been working on a musical monologue on keyboard since before the pandemic and hope to perform it live someday so thanks for the encouragement!!
Thank you for such a great comment on I'll Be Moving On. I'm glad you enjoyed the tune!
Welcome, and happy FAWMing!
