Artist Bio

Influences:   Not while driving or operating heavy machinery.

2019 is my 4th go at this FAWM thing. I was proud of my output last year, but upon revisiting the material, it really was quite a depressing bunch of tunes. Gonna try for some lighter fare this year, but we'll see what happens...

Gear: a guitar and a cellphone

    Thanks for listening to Vanity Project. It was a lonely zong for sooooo long.

  • @tamsnumber4  5 weeks

    Thanks for commenting on my collab song "Hope Beyond Hope", I appreciate the listen!!

  • @dreamscuba  6 weeks

    Thank you for your comments on "Wanktastic"...much appreciated.

  • @infilktion 6 weeks

    Char says it doesn't ruin the mystique and recommends reading "The Slow Regard of Silent Things ".

  • @mikeb 6 weeks

    Thanks for the listen and comment on '24 Hours to Midnight' - I'm now trying to figure out how to do a full production of it.

  • @infilktion 6 weeks

    Thank you for your comments on "You"! As to your question about "The Slow Regard of Silent Things". It was a good book. I will have to ask Char to weigh in on what is does regarding the main novels (as I have yet to read them - she asked me to read the novella so that we could work on songs about it - so that is where I started).

    Thank you for your comment on 'I Dreamed I Was A Little Boat'. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @bethdesombre  6 weeks

    Wow -- thanks for listening to, and commenting on, so many songs. I'll have to get back to the ones of yours I missed. But, yeah -- I had an especially great FAWM this year; hope you did too.

    Thanks for the comment on Stop The World... much appreciated.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. Itโ€™s been a tough year in terms of listening to all the good music produced. Definitely still catching up.

    I have a secret to tell; Iโ€™ve never owned or listened to the Bends, or Radiohead for that matter. Dan is a huge fan and weโ€™ve been discussing their writing and Thomโ€™s singing style. I have been experimenting writing in their style and listening to their music. Still not listened to the Bends though.

    Any way thank you for the huge praise. Most appreciated.

    i didnt play the trombone on that although it is real trombone. i can play a little but not good enough for that yet.

  • @audrey  6 weeks

    Nah, you didn't come off as a pretentious jerk at all. I'd rather be able to correct stuff like that than perpetuate the misconception. I've learned something today. Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @audrey  6 weeks

    Thanks for your kind words on my song Earthrise. And thanks for educating me too. I did not know that from the surface of the moon, the earth neither rises or sets. I guess it just happened for those Apollo 8 astronauts because they were orbiting the moon. I first thought that was the moon landing mission, but that one was Apollo 11. Sorry I didn't have my facts straight. I'll go edit my page now, even if it is a bit late since FAWM ended. (How embarrassing) ๐Ÿ˜€

    Coming to the FAWM over party in Somerville? I'm coming from Uxbridge and I could drift over your way if you need a ride. It will be next Sunday 3/10 at 2pm. oh, and thanks for the nice words on Cadillac Dreams. I'm kind of happy how that one turned out.

  • @tamsnumber4  7 weeks

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my collab "Since We First Touched" I appreciate it!

  • @infilktion 7 weeks

    "Is it wrong that the absolutely brutal imagery you use here really makes me want to read these books?" Nope.
    It was fun contrasting the princesses. Thank you for the comment! I look forward to catching up on listening now. -Natalie

    Hi! Thank you for your comments on 1984/1985! Yup, the prequel thought is really good!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  8 weeks

    You're too kind...and I hope you dreams of losing to the best come true...but I think you meant @sapient. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 18

    Thanks for your comment! I need to catch up with your work!

  • @raygungirls Feb 16

    Thanks for checking out so many of my songs and glad you like 'em! Wish I could play my acoustic the way you play yours!

  • @bamsekarhu Feb 16

    Thanks for the comment on my acoustic death ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @rustyp Feb 16

    Hey DW1,
    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Minor Inconvenience."

    Yeah, I totally understand. The truth is that I couldn't afford one either. If it hadn't been for a chance meeting and extreme generosity, I'd still be imagining myself having one.

    It's a very rhythmic and loop based instrument, at least in my hands. I've played a lot of percussion and so I've been getting acquainted with it pretty well. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @mmmmarcus Feb 11

    Thank you so much for the comment on Carry Me Home!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 10

    LOL. Thanks for the love of my title.
    I was trying to think of the most metal title I could, but also something that would end up on a Spinal Tap Album.

  • @bethdesombre  Feb 9

    Thanks! Yeah, my February has started well. Listen to others, though, Pilgrim is not one of the keepers . . .

  • @downfallroad  Feb 7

    \m/ fuck yeah metal!

  • @cherok40  Feb 7

    Good to be back! Love your "ghosts" song.

  • @woolford  Feb 4

    Hi man. Thanks for your compliments on my delivery of โ€œReminds me of youโ€. Iโ€™m glad you enjoyed it.
    What a bloody lovely experience it is being here with all these supportive people! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @pokerowan  Feb 3

    Thanks for the observations and kind words on 'Nameless One'! I'm glad you liked the contrast ๐Ÿ˜€

    The synth is a virtual synth, played via a MIDI keyboard controller.
