Influences: Donald Fagen, Stevie Wonder, Beatles, Miles Davis, '60s and '70s rock.
Jazz, Rock and Pop background. I play keyboards, bass guitar and some bamboo flute. My last gig was as an arranger and pianist for a big band. This may explain why my songs sound like video games or band-in-a-box. That and I use GarageBand.

Aww... thanks ... yeah someone jumped on it quirky, but if you have something and send me a link or MP3 I can add it to the song on the site with you as a collaborator and then it will also pop up on yours. Liz
Congratulations on making it to 14!
And thank you for all the lovely comments! They are much appreciated!
Thanks for your comment on my ambient guitar track! 😀
Thank you so much for commenting on Darker Than The Night. You've expressed my exact thoughts in your response to my lyric. If you're interested in putting music to it, I welcome it and would love to hear what you come up with.
Hi Dock, the web address you gave me doesn't seem to want to work. You can write me at email@example.com
Oh that’s great news, it’s so refreshing to pick up forgotten instruments and see how they influence playing music. I think it was Tom awaits who said his hands were like trained dogs on the piano, so he had to switch up instruments to keep the songwriting fresh, or something like that...
Yes, my cat drools...and yes, the chord progression on Home is purposefully reminiscent. 😀 Thanks for your comments!! Looking forward to listening to you.
Haha Damn you found me out 😂
Hey Dock! Thx for listening and commenting on "Drain"! 😀
Hello, Dock! Thanks for appreciating my cereals! I don't know where the cellos come from. They grow wild in our fields. Mixed in with the cereals. 😀
Heehee...the Queen of Clubs will stop at nothing!! 😀
Thanks for the feedback on Bears' Nutrition Guide.
Thanks for your comment on Fret Stew. Yup, it's intoxicating like some bad fairy tale potion.
Hi Dock. Thanks for taking the time to listen to my song “The Melting Snow” and for the kind words you left. I listened to a few of your songs and I can definitely hear the Donald Fagen/Steely Dan influence (i luvvvvv Steely Dan’s music). So your compliment on my song means that much more.
And I probably should have put this in the liner note but I feel obligated to say the brush work and kick on the jazz kit were not my doing. At least it wasn’t entirely. I found an app that helped me out with that. But because I was meandering a little with the time on my guitar work I had to start and stop the drum app manually as I was recording it with my guitar track. I can also manually trigger a fill as it’s playing live with my recorded guitar track. That’s how the fills and other things going on with the drums were so well placed.
Thanks for your comment on "Nothings Better Than You". I appreciate the listen.
Oh no 😂😂 sorry about your piano disapproving cat. Riff loves music. It usually lulls him to sleep. Thanks for stopping by 🙂🙏
hi, yes that's exactly what I am doing - create the overarching story arc with the song titles and then methodically work through them - diving into a detail of that arc for each song - like cherry picking the arias out of an opera and leaving the recitative to the imagination of the listener. Its been a surprisingly effective method - and I'm flying through the songs - I'll be able to do a few random collabs at the end of the month at this pace.
Thank you for your comment on Til the End of Time. Very hastily put together. There is a Doo Wop chord progression underneath.
Thanks for the comment on my ambient track!
Thanks for your feedback on "waiting for summer". I agree that the "tearing at the seams" line is super cliché, but i honestly couldn't think of anything else haha. The close doors line means not letting people in, not giving them a look inside your mind. It actually fits within that part because you also keep your door close to prevent the cold from getting in, but i can see that it is a bit far fetched. I just thought it was clever. When it comes to the genre, i was thinking about indie-folk
Thank you for listening to so many of my songs. I appreciate your comments!
Thank you for your kind comment on Smallest of Things.
Hi Dock! Should be fixed now if you want to give it another go. I’m going to check your stuff out now too 😎
Thanks for visiting my song! 😀 It's been an awfully slow start for me this year.
Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving such a lovely comment! I appreciate it a lot...
It's just a catch phrase of sorts. I always feel like posting things without some sort of signature makes the post/comment disingenuous. "See You In The Shadows" is just my way of making the post feel complete. I'm Candle and Candles light up the darkess - but still leave plenty of shadows. So, I'll see you in the shadows sort of expresses that symbolic idea. Thanks for asking & welcome to FAWM!
See You In The Shadows…
I like that whistle challenge on SC, - great stuff.
Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
