Northern California US   Feb 2013

Artist Bio

Influences:   Folk, filk, nerdcore, choral music, epics, musical theatre, barbershop, Celtic music, punk

Pronouns: I don't really care, just don't confuse everyone by doing things like referring to me as "he" and "she" in the same sentence.

2019: My songwriting lately has been skewing more and more toward darker punk songs, but I know better by now than to try to plan or predict what I'll be writing for FAWM.

2018: I'm thinking barbershop. Lots and lots of barbershop.

2017: Due to my grandfather's funeral, I was too busy to even think about starting for most of the first week of FAWM.

I thought I was going to do some instrumentals this year, but instead I think I've posted more a capella songs than ever before. Of course, I've never been able to participate in this much of a SuperSkirmish before. If I get my song count up high enough with skirmish songs now, maybe I'll have time for those instrumentals after all?

2016: I somehow didn't make the connection until well into the month of February, after finding myself doing a lot of songwriting, that this is when FAWM happens. So I'm starting late but at least I've got a head start on it? lol

I gave myself permission to write very short songs, thinking it would help me catch up. These short songs quickly took over my entire FAWM. I wrote 10 superhero themes and 10 songs forming a mini-musical. By the end, instead of fulfilling the leap-FAWM challenge by writing 14 and a half songs in 29 days, I wrote 28 half-songs and in half the time.

I got some actual recording equipment for Christmas, so hopefully what you hear from me this year will be a little higher quality.

    Sorry about the requiem lack of follow up. My FAWM was derailed by an out of town trip, work, and 2 deaths. I will eventually finish, but not now.

    Your morph, my dear! If you have any questions 'bout the chords, let me know okay?

    Hi here's my first 10seconds

  • @sph  Feb 14

    Hi there,
    finally I finished my segment for the backward corpse. How do I send it to you?

  • @jackketch Feb 2019

    Hi! In response to your question, I'd love it if you did a cover version of my song 'Stairs lead to nowhere', that would be awesome. I agree about the music box - can totally see that. I did originally put a church organ in the background but I couldn't get it to sound right so I took it out. I can fish out the chords when I get home from work unless you think you can work them out yourself?

    Time Skirmish, Thanks for trying, Sometimes a song almost writes itself on other days ...well never time wasted because you have some ideas.
