Last year's FAWM was fantastic and I'm pretty psyched to do it again. Two of the songs I wrote last year have been recorded and will be released soon, which is SO EXCITING. I can only hope for this year to be as fruitful!
I am a classical violinist, turned opera singer, turned folky fiddle player. Lots of interesting music was played along the journey to get here. I love playing bluegrass and old timey music. I have really enjoyed the social aspect that this style of music allows. I also love playing lush pretty string arrangements to cool singer-songwriter type music. And singing! I still sing.
Just out of curiosity googled your and Tanya's zip codes. Didn't know Sydney & Melbourne are at least a 9 hour car ride apart via M31 or an hour and a half by plane. Does your band work entirely via long-distance collaboration (no/few live gigs)?
Thanks for listening and commenting on "Genius".
Thanks for listening and the kind words on my Ukulele song !
Thankyou ever so much Dani for listening and the kind words on my ukulele tune ‘Kicking rain puddles ‘. I really do appreciate it .
Thank you Dani, for liking my tune Different Ways, and for posting such wonderful comments! I thought Jonhstaples did me a great favor when he recommended my song to you, but now that I've seen your work, I realize the favor was actually introducing me to your work!! Your musical soul is kindred to mine. I love the sound of your voice and I'm carried away by your violin work!!
Thanks so much for your very kind encouragement! As great as FAWM is, it is a challenge, so comments like yours can make all the difference in pushing through to the end of February. Thanks so much again. I really appreciate it.
Hi Dani, have a great FAWM and I look forward to hearing your music!
Thanks, Dani, great to see/hear you again too.
