Artist Bio

Influences:   The running list of artists I've been compared to here over the years (many of whom I've hardly or never listened to): David Bowie, Jonathan Richmond, Robyn Hitchcock, "old British psychedelic rock," Ween, Beck, King Crimson, Tom Petty, Duran Duran, Talking Heads, "late 70's early 80's new wave," the Beatles (wow thanks), Talk Talk, Bob Dylan (umm, whoa?), !!!, Massive Attack, Total Giovanni, and finally someone recognized my Thin Lizzy obsession.

This will be a weird FAWM for me (my sixth?? How did that happen??), as I'm scheduled to have heart surgery beginning of Feb. So we'll see how much I'm able to be around here...although screw it, if it's uke songs recorded on my phone in my hospital room, I'm in!

    I appreciate you digging my tune pal! Singing fast can get the endorphins going sometime.

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful and very supportive feedback on my song "comin up on 10". Woodie Guthrie, whoa, humbled. I really appreciate it - cause I felt a bit cringie like I didn't do it good enough to share.

    Hey man, what do you think of a track with keys? I’m using my Yamaha cp30. It is a mix of 3/4 and 4/4. You could mess with the arrangement however you want. Actually it’s probably 6/8 and 4/4 now that I think of it. I could play drums eventually if you want, after you play on it and/or arrange it. Let me know

    Thanks so much for your comment on my collab with Nancy!

    Thanks for the visit! That "backwards" guitar on "D" was just me controlling the volume knob as I was playing simple parts. I have a volume pedal, but I was too lazy to crawl around and hook it up!

    Thank you! Nothing like combining Smashing Pumpkins and Joy Division...

    Well, my 8-track can only record 4 at a time, but for me that's plenty. The drums use four and that's the most I'd need. I also installed direct out 1/4" jacks for each channel, and bought a cheap 8 channel snake. This lets me just bring all 8 out at the same time to my interface and into the DAW. No bouncing - I have used these things for so many years and really never bounced internally in the machines. I used to bounce out to VHS and back, but never just shuffled tracks.

    Thanks so much for your comments. I love that first Foo fighters record a ton, especially as a drummer! This is my first Fawm not recording live drums due to noise restrictions (recording with e-drums instead) so glad to hear the emphasis is coming through somewhat.

    Thanks so much for your kind words on "Ninita"!

    Amp simulation, to my ear, has been as good or better than my ability to run a pedal board and mic an amp for nearly as long as I’ve been doing home recording, since the mid 1990s. My prior amp simulator was a Behringer V-Amp 2 which has some great Fender and Marshall sims in it. People said the same thing about that recorded sound as well and they were often disappointed when I told them what cheap gear I had. The 12 string electric was even cheaper than Danelectro’s cheapest one. It’s a Dean. That was the first recording I made with it and I was very happy with the results. There’s two tracks both using the dean and a Fender Deluxe Reverb amp sim in the Zoom. Right track is middle pup position and left track is bridge position and picked pretty close to the bridge. To my ear it sounds pretty vintage and just the right amount of breakup.

    Hope you're around this year, for analog or digital FAWMing about.

    Hey there.....I look forward to hearing from you again this year. So many cool directions and sounds, not to mention recordings. Best wishes to you this fawm.
