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

on 29th Feb

My FAWM album will be songs 1 3 4 5 6 14 18 19 26 30 31 32 33 42. i can't finalise it until I return home in May. it is called "Dedication" it is to celebrate what would have been my mother's 100th birthday on 29 February

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 Iโ€™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 Iโ€™m a bit quiet Iโ€™m probably out of service range good luck to you all!

    Sorry, didn't mean to go American on you. Just be glad I didn't go "Brooklyn" on you ๐Ÿ˜‰ hahhh!

  • @ustaknow Mar 26

    Ah, well, that's an American-ism.

    And then you say, (after getting home, as you said you did, "I'm back"), - what happened ๐Ÿ˜€ or not ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ustaknow Mar 25

    And then what happened? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @scubed  Mar 7

    Thanks so much for the lovely comment!

  • @billwhite51 Mar 6

    thanks for catching up with fatima. ive got a few more of yours to catch up with as well.

  • @marthie Mar 2

    I am sorry all my computers are acting out at the same time. ๐Ÿ˜ž

  • @lowhum Mar 2

    thanks, I guess next time ๐Ÿ˜€)

  • @marthie Mar 2

    I know- I am sorry I was confused too! fixing it... It's people writing the same titled songs for Squirmishes...

  • @dianaviney Mar 1

    thanks for listening to my other song Pirate Warning. Might have to rename it...suggestions? I worked really hard on the lyric - took all month to get it right I think. I was worried it wouldnt make sense to people at first but then i added the "epilogue" as my husband called it. Thanks again!

  • @dianaviney Mar 1

    Thanks for your thoughtful comments on Moonbird! Now, Im gonna go listen to lucinda! I am hopeful to purchase a real recording set up so I can make actual recordings -NOT on of my old iphone 6! Although, having that limitation has actually made me a better musician...trying to get it all out in one take. I think I have 1000 voice memos because somewhere I screw up and have to start all I can say that i am ready to preform on stage as a benefit. 52 songs is amazing btw....good job, looking forward to listening.

  • @marthie Mar 1

    Any songs you want me to look at? Let me know...

  • @gwyn1234  Mar 1

    Thanks @coolparadiso ...I've deleted the rogue track...not sure what happened there...cheers for the support!

  • @ajna1960 Mar 1

  • @angelinapowersuit Feb 27

    Thanks so much for your feedback on "Her Man," and funny you mentioned the "Little fiddle," because that's exactly what it is - 1/2 size violin (my son's)!

    I love that you have Grandaddy as an influence in your bio. Are there any songs from this year that you think typify that influence for you?

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 26

    I have updated the demo for one of my collaborations with @cindyrella - The Ghosts Of Sachs Bridge

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 25

  • @andybalham Feb 19

    Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 19

    Awesome! Thanks for the compliment, that style was exactly what I was trying to imitate. Thanks for listening!

  • @aneil Feb 19

    The demo for Mirror mirror is up another awesome performance by @marthie

  • @timfatchen  Feb 19

    Thank you for the comments John. I'm trying to squeeze in some listening as well as writing before returning to the wilds of Pt Aug. Are you there gigging or just passing through?

  • @theresaj  Feb 19

    You have been very kind and supportive with all of your comments on my songs. I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for that.

  • @terrisunflowery27 Feb 18

    Thanks for that comment on wrinkled conversation. It feels very raw and vulnerable and leaves me feeling rather naked so I guess that all came out. Still probably more cathartic than anything.

    And thanks for even considering a collab on Best Friend. Iโ€™ll get that timing figured out soon hopefully.

  • @brandondale72  Feb 18

    31 and I haven't heard one of your songs, what a shame! Congrats on the progress! This fawm is flying by. Thanks for checking out my latest, "Isolation". Appreciate the support. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @gwyn1234  Feb 18

    Thank you so much for your encouraging comments...much appreciated!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 17

    I am happy you liked it. I somehow missed The two lines when I cut and pasted it to my computer to print. Iam happy it worked Anyway <3

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 17

    Thank you. I started to work on inspo and I am so happy I did not have to throw the work away. Thank you I really loved your lyrics

  • @tabitha Feb 17

    Thank you for your comment on School Reunion!

  • @ceilidh  Feb 17

    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 Feb 17

    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 Feb 17

    Thanks for the listen and comment on my latest song.

  • @tseaver  Feb 17

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

  • @terrisunflowery27 Feb 16

    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 Feb 16

    Hey John! You are so prolific and I am working on singing your song Looking Backward Into Time. Iโ€™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 Feb 16

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

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 16

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

  • @s7even  Feb 16

    Thank you for checking out โ€œa song of how we metโ€. Iโ€™m a pretty happy guy as well. I just happened to be thinking of how I write/sing/connect with mostly sad songs so thatโ€™s what I wrote about. I like the taste the salt lime too. Thanks again!

  • @splittybooms  Feb 16

    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  Feb 15

    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 Iโ€™ll be doing a double album catch up ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 15

    "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 ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sarahmonticue Feb 14

    Thanks for your comments on my songs! Let me know if youโ€™re inspired to take a stab at setting my lyric!

  • @raygunnsraygun Feb 14
