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  Mar 14

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

  • @dreamscuba  Mar 11

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

  • @infilktion Mar 11

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

  • @mikeb Mar 8

    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 Mar 7

    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  Mar 6

    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.

  • @msculli1  Mar 6

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

  • @majordanby  Mar 6

    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.

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 6

    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  Mar 5

    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  Mar 5

    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˜€

  • @mikegtz  Mar 3

    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  Mar 3

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

  • @infilktion Mar 2

    "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

  • @estheraleida Mar 1

  • @mikeb Feb 27

    Thanks for the listen and comment on 'Into the Vortex'.

  • @susancantey  Feb 22

    Thanks for all the nice comments! Off to listen to a few of yours now...

  • @repsurepa Feb 21

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

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 21

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

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 20

  • @hjwmg2 Feb 20

    Hey! Third year since Iโ€™ve warch listed you, and Iโ€™m never disappointed! Thank you for your comment!

  • @sunnymae  Feb 18

    Hey Driftwood thanks for dropping by and leaving your cool comments on Run Baby Run. Swagger eh? I like that!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 18

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

  • @raygungirls Feb 2019

    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 2019

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

  • @rustyp Feb 2019

    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 2019

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

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2019

    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 2019

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

  • @downfallroad  Feb 2019

    \m/ fuck yeah metal!

  • @cherok40  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your nice comments. Much appreciated!

  • @faststrings Feb 2019

    Hey Driftwood1, thanks for the comment on my song I appreciate it.

  • @bjunker  Feb 2019

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

  • @woolford  Feb 2019

    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 2019

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

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

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

  • @enigma4711  Jan 2019

  • @thelostcartographer  Jan 2019
