I'm Kat, one half of Boxtape. I've been a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter for many years. Been in signed bands writing primarily heavy material. Now work more as a songwriter / Youtuber as well as in music education. Main genres at the moment are indie/dreampop experimental, sometimes with a bit of rock.
First year of FAWM so excited, nervous, scared but also up for the challenge.
I put together a pre-FAWM vlog outlining a few ideas here - https://youtu.be/7G_zk8ysPwU

Hi - just wanted to say thanks for you comment about the Milwaukee song. That second-half of the second-verse was my favorite part of the lyric 😀
Hi, thanks for the comment on my "Christmas" song, yes I was kind of thinking a reggae or latin feel to it.
I suppose it's a byproduct of closely parsing potential band names, now that I think "Soundtracks for Insomniacs" might not be the right way to go. I'm trying to come up with another alternative and it has me pulling out the spyglass to investigate words. 😀
Welcome to your first year of FAWM!
So, I read the band name and hear "Boxtape" as "boxed ape" and that suggests "domesticated primates" aka "humans" and wonder "is this suggestion intentional?" If not, it's a nice added layer. 😀
hi hope you have a great first fawm. i saw your interest on the london after fawm party thread , keep an eye out on that, i am down in worthing quite often so am an honarary south coaster too.
Hey, great to see another sussex participant (left many years ago but lived in Eastbourne for the first 17.5 years of my life). Good luck with FAWM 😀
Hey Boxtape. From just down the coast from you. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with.
Hi Kat, welcome to FAWM.
FYI - Your Soundboard is the place for other Fawmers to leave messages for you. If you want to reply to them, it's best to leave a message on their Soundboard rather than your own. Otherwise, the forums are the best place to introduce yourself or ask questions.
TIp - If you're replying to someone in the forums, you can tag that person by writing their name with the @ before it - e.g. @oddbod
That message will then show up in the person's "Recent Activity" page.
Note - this only works in the forums though, not on messages left on Soundboards.
Have a good one
I write songs pretty frequently but not at this pace, excited and scared! What about you?
