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 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!

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

  • @ustaknow 1 week

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

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

  • @ustaknow 1 week

    And then what happened? πŸ˜€

  • @dianaviney 4 weeks

    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 4 weeks

    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 4 weeks

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

  • @gwyn1234  4 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    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. I’ll get that timing figured out soon hopefully.

  • @brandondale72  6 weeks

    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. πŸ˜€

  • @ceilidh  6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    Thanks for the listen and comment on my latest song.

    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 6 weeks

    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?

    Thank you for checking out β€œa 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  6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    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 πŸ˜€

  • @radioovermoscow 6 weeks

    "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 πŸ˜€

  • @sarahmonticue 6 weeks

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