Influences: I enjoy all kinds of music, but here are a couple of favorites: John Prine, Bob Dylan, Tom Russell, Katy Moffatt, R.E.M., 10,000 Maniacs, Billy Bragg, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen.
Get in touch FAWMers who want to collaborate! 😀 I'm mainly a lyricist, but I don't shy away from a bit of composition either. Collaborations are EXTREMELY welcome. However, if you want to post, share, perform or release the song outside of FAWM, please ask first. I will say yes. Royalties, if applicable, will be an equal split between everyone involved. Now, let's make some magic! 😀
If you're interested, this is how I cheat/work:
- BiB or Magix for generating instrument tracks, combined with some playing of my own if I've got the time or ideas (although I can't really play anything).
- CoolEdit Pro 2.1 for chopping, editing, effects and mixing.
- Got a brand new USB mixer & mic setup for vocals, and a nice Shure Beta 58a and lots of gear and instruments in my home studio that I really don't know how to use. Instruments I have access to in my home studio include an electric guitar, an acoustic guitar, an electric bass, too many harmonicas, a vibraslap, various percussion instruments, an accordion, an Irish flute, a mouth harp, a ukulele and some keyboards.
- Vocal tweaking in Melodyne. Kind of an expert there. 😉
