Artist Bio

Influences:   Whatever permeates the Brownian motion that goes on in my brain....

Looking forward to making some noise. Not sure how much time I will get to write and listen to other FAWMers due to work commitments, but will do my best to get the full FAWM experience.
I think I will try and be less structured with my songs this year.

Something I learned last year, and I am a very slow learner, when I got more active in listening to FAWMers songs, commenting and joining the forums, I found the FAWM experience to be so much more fun than just struggling to get my noises out.

*** UPDATE*** 19-Feb - Been a hectic month at work so far....I am trying to get round to reading all the comments and listening to all that FAWM goodness out there....Difficult finding time to write more stuff at the moment though.

    Thank you for the kind words about my songs First Day on Campus and Don't Get Caught. Much appreciated.

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 26

    Hi there Simon 😀

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

  • @andyt13 Feb 23


  • @gm7 Feb 17

    Thx for the collab offer...but i'm not a singer...but the piece should have a vocal luck.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 16

    What a brilliant (and thoughtful) idea for using the stems, Simon! 😀

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 15

    I've now made the song Follow downloadable -

  • @silvermachine  Feb 10

    I pace myself to a two day turnaround at FAWM so nothing more yet.
    Ta for the very encouraging reviews, a lot of people run screaming for assistance when they encounter my stuff!
    Would I be right in having a guess your business is scuba? My wife's really into that. Good luck with the Powerpoint. I'll come back tonight and have a listen to more of your songs.

  • @aneil Feb 10

    Would love to write lyrics and sing on Look don't Stare started lyrics already

  • @dragondreams  Feb 9

    Thanks again for all your time listening, Simon!
    Oddly enough, the full working title for "I remember..." was "I remember Shadows"! The inspiration came from remembering listening to all their singles on my uncle's Bush Discassette record player as a child.

  • @marklberry Feb 4

    2020 cheers!

  • @emplate Feb 4

    Thank you for your comment on "A Frozen Glance", I appreciate it! : )

  • @meadows  Feb 3

    Thanks Simon! Your comment is much appreciated! 😀

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2020

    You're very kind, and thank you. 😀
    Yep. The guitar is running an Iron Gear Alchemist 90 (a hybrid P90/humbucker) in the neck position into the T'Watt Mk XIII.

  • @gordon  Feb 2020

    Hi Simon, thanks for your kind comments. I hope you do manage to get on top of things and post some songs. Have a good one!

  • @oneslowtyper  Feb 2020

    Hi Simon, looking forward to hearing more music from you this year.

  • @the3queens  Jan 2020

    Happy FAWMING!!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2020

    Have a great FAWM!

  • @dukemeyer Jan 2020

    Happy FAWM to you! 😀

  • @bandybum Jan 2020

    Good solid sound you've got going on 😀
    Looking forward to see what you come up with in Feb

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Thank you so much... I'm looking forward to the 24/7 FAWM distraction, lol. Music is a great healer. Looking forward to your FAWMing! 😀

  • @dasbinky  Jan 2020

    May your FAWM be full of glorious revelation and / or sonic debauchery!

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 2020

    Hi Simon - Yep, it's a Roadie IIA. Could probably do with a set-up and a bit of TLC, as I've had it for over thirty years!

  • @boyatheart Jan 2020

    Have a great FAWM Simon!

  • @silvermachine  Jan 2020

    Wotcha mate, I enjoyed your music last year.
    Couldn't agree more with your observation about FAWM being a totally different experience when you get involved.

  • @dragondreams  Jan 2020

    Hey Simon! Glad to see you here again. 😀
    The new version of the amp is my favourite yet. I'll be interested to hear (read) your views on how it sounds. I've gone for ultra creamy - and, to my ears, it works really well with a neck position P90 equipped guitar. Switching to a bridge humbucker kicks it into a more "acidic" creaminess that works well for rhythm - if that makes any sense at all? 😁
