Thulimbah AU   Jan 2018

Artist Bio

Influences:   Dylan, Cohen, Young, Lennon, Grandaddy, Bob Seger, Phil Ochs, Placebo White stripes,Pixies, Neutral.milk hotel, Decemberists, Eels Waits Metallica etc

Firstly, i will be touring from early February and away from my studio so i will be working flat out in the first few days preparing as many songs as i can.

The last few months I’ve been a bit off the radar studying with various musicians to expand my skill set. I have been working with Cambodian and Burmese musicians, working with electronic musicians and studying dubstep and Hip hop, working hard on production and been songwriting with a grammy nominated songwriter! So expect anything! But I wont have time to delve into all of it, maybe some will have to wait for 50/90.

Once i am away I will be checking in and listening as much as possible and may put up a fair few lyrics (maybe a few skirmishes) for collaborations as well! If I’m a bit quiet I’m probably out of service range good luck to you all!

    Thank you for your comment on School Reunion!

  • @ceilidh  3 hours

    Thank you for your feedback on Night Terror! Glad to hear it creeped you out -- I was wondering whether I should try to add creepy sounds, but thought it would be scary enough on its own. Thank you for letting me know it's effective!

  • @sheslin 5 hours

    Hey John glad you liked it - it certainly was an adventure and took quite a while to learn the DAW and figure out how to make it work. I used the reverse effect on the drum track lol!! I am totally addicted - wish I had more time to play!

  • @mikeb 10 hours

    Thanks for the listen and comment on my latest song.

  • @tseaver  12 hours

    Thanks for the chance to collab on the coffee cup song.

  • @terrisunflowery27 12 hours

    Yay, thanks for the collab opportunity...that was awesome for me to do.

    And yes...deep. That definitely describes it. And I am sorry for your loss. A palliative care nurse...that is very cool to know. I hope she would have liked the song.

  • @terrisunflowery27 13 hours

    Hey John! You are so prolific and I am working on singing your song Looking Backward Into Time. I’ve never done a collab though and am not sure how to get you a listen before posting it in FAWM. Or should I just post?

  • @treble 15 hours

    Thanks for your thoughtful comments on my skirmish Sugar Song. Hope your tour is going well!

  • @kingwoodkowboy  22 hours

    cool, thanks for reviewing "Mississippi Miss I Miss You".

  • @s7even  23 hours

    Thank you for checking out “a song of how we met”. I’m a pretty happy guy as well. I just happened to be thinking of how I write/sing/connect with mostly sad songs so that’s what I wrote about. I like the taste the salt lime too. Thanks again!

  • @splittybooms  1 day

    Point taken! haha
    Happy travels, man.
    I gotta say, knowing someone has listened to something of mine so many miles away in such a setting, it makes me feel some kind of way...

  • @karlsburg25  1 day

    Whoops I not I not in the forum due to being technically idiotic , but yes even in fawm I want to try to create with a sense of what has been before so it flows a little in an album way . So with yourself it seems I’ll be doing a double album catch up 😀

    "modern beatlesque"

    Thanks! The second half kind of has that Ringo beat going on, eh? I wasn't sure about that when I was writing/recording it, but once I got the melody down, I thought it was too good to take out 😀

  • @sarahmonticue 2 days
