Artist Bio

Influences:   Ringo Starr, Bucks Fizz, Will Oldham

I am very excited about FAWM 2021. I think my grand War & Peace (USSR 1965-67) song cycle might have to wait for next year. But whatever I do, I'm just excited about the prospect of finishing some songs. That only really happens in Feb.

    Thanks for the love on "Birthday!"

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Thanks for commenting "Embrace the storm". I'm glad you enjoyed one of my first tries in that genre. I hope that I'll find a vocalist. But maybe you're right, that it can also work with that piano. The arrangement is quite crowded. I'm looking forward to produce all my songs in a proper way in some weeks or months.

    Hello, there! Thank you for listening to my songs! <3

  • @thedutchwidows  7 weeks

    Cheers for all the comments - they have kept me in equal parts motivated and amused! More power to your elbow!

  • @ayehahmur  7 weeks

    Cheese and crackers is a quality choice. Well done, and thanks in return!

  • @thedutchwidows  7 weeks

    Been called worse!

    High and low pass. Apart from the fact I always get them mixed up, they're great. Really cleans up your mix. Post-FAWM we should have a proper geeky production debrief. We can talk about gain staging and compression ratios. It'll be great.

  • @mattwdunn 8 weeks

    Thank you for the amazing comments. I’m truly astounded by the positivity at FAWM 21. Hopefully this is my first year of many

  • @davidtaro  8 weeks

    Thanks for the comments! That last one is my favourite too, by a mile. Definitely feel like I've peaked, all downhill from here....

    Going to give your latest two a listen later today 😀

  • @gnashattack  8 weeks

    Thanks for the love on "Complex!"

  • @caitlin Feb 20

    I feel like describing my song as "undefinably strange" is the best compliment I could hope for! I'm tickled that Be had that effect on you. Thanks so much for swinging by and sharing!

  • @ampersandman  Feb 19

    Thank you so much for your listens, and also the band recommendations. Sugar I know and love, but I'll have to check out the ones you mentioned.

  • @katestantonsings Feb 19

    Yes!! You got it--thank you for noticing! I appreciate the feedback. I worked hard on just the right sound for the brass synth layers.

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 18

    I've got a particular relationship with "good enough" I think. Actually writing the song, I get to that point quite quickly but for production issues - arrangement, timing, mix - I'll tweak at it til the cows come home.

    But in all art there is definitely a point where it is very certainly "good enough" and any further tweaking is based on fear of letting it be enjoyed/judged whatever.

  • @thedutchwidows  Feb 18

    "Slovely lyrical content" is my nickname. It's the future.

  • @rickachu Feb 15

    Thank you for the listen and the kind words ❤

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 15

    You're welcome. It's great getting to know your music.

    Wandering (or passing) modulations is probably a term I just came up with to be honest. What I really mean is that the song breaks out of and back into the home key really smoothly, bringing extra notes to the melody in a really natural sounding way. Hope that helps but I can try and be more specific if you need me to be.

  • @natrebo  Feb 12

    Thanks for all the kind words man! This is my first FAWM and I can only speak glowingly about my experiences so far including meeting so many great songwriters like yourself. Songwriting has never made me money (and my classical based concert music hasn’t exactly paid all of the bills), but it’s nice to know there are good people out there who like to share and grow their love of music. Keep rockin’ and be safe.

  • @jerrypettit  Feb 12

    As for sounding more like the Beach Boys than Sinatra, I think it has a lot to do with puberty--despite my being in my 60s! 😉

  • @davidtaro  Feb 11

    Glad to hear you're back on that horse mate. There's a song title in that, I'm sure. It's utterly shitty times at the moment, and it's basically impossible not to feel blue at points. Your latest one is a real corker though, looking forward to what's next 😀

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 11

    I bloody love it! As for eight songs - this is the first year I’ve come in without a pre-conceived concept, which scared me at the beginning, but has been totally freeing! And like so many, after the year we’ve had, I think I really needed this outlet...

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 10

    Hi @brisk - I can’t get the link to work for your Navigator song? Is it working okay? (Could be something my end??)

  • @davidtaro  Feb 8

    Hey man. Sorry to hear you've been hitting the misery mines. You all ok? Good to see you back on here, and thanks for the nice comments.

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 5

    Hi! Thanks for the kind note on my song. You mention some artists I'm not familiar with so I get a bonus this year in tracking down some new music. Thanks, again!

  • @dutch1967  Feb 4

    Thanks for listening and commenting on Choose.I feel I still have some work to do on the lyrics, that's what March through January are for though.
    Appreciate the kind words.

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 4

    Hey, thanks for taking the time to comment on Fixer Upper and I will absolutely take a late-period XTC comparison any day of the week. I once lived on a diet of Wasp Star and Apple Venus almost exclusively for a whole year! High praise indeed. Cheers!

  • @davidtaro  Feb 3

    Ok, so I just read the lyrics back and I get it now! As you say, thank goodness for ambiguity...

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 3

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I love XTC but not sure that was a conscious influence.

  • @natrebo  Feb 3

    Thanks for the kind words on my song. My first comments from someone ever during FAWM as I am a Fawmling! Thanks again!

  • @davidtaro  Feb 2

    I am running behind. Yesterday was one of those mental, 90 mile an hour days at work so I was thoroughly grumpy at the end of it having had no time to do anything music-related. Hopefully better today 🤞

  • @reklov  Feb 2

    Thanks for your kind words to "For Juan"! 😀

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2

    Thank you so much for the listen and the comment! 😀
    I have no clue about genres, so no worries. I usually let @ajna1960 tell me what genre I've come up with. 😉

  • @dutch1967  Feb 2

    Thanks for stopping by Choose. I'm making time this afternoon to listen to your work.

  • @mightyq  Feb 1

    Thanks for your kind comments!

  • @davidtaro  Jan 12

    A welcome back. For when you're back. Happy FAWM 2021!
