Melbourne AU   Jan 2017

Artist Bio

Influences:   The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, INXS, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, King Crimson, Robert Fripp, Mike Oldfield, The Velvet Underground, Daniel Johnston, Jandek

I play piano, guitar and bass, and occasionally sing. I am able to write songs when given the opportunity, but often have trouble getting inspired.

This is my fifth year of FAWM.

FAWM 2017: 14/14 songs. Half of those songs were older songs written before 2017, but I still managed to get 14 in. Most of these songs ended up on my debut album "The Beginning".
FAWM 2018: 14/14 songs. Most of these songs are still in an incomplete state, but I plan to finish them sometime and use them in my unfinished album "The Pop Album".
FAWM 2019: 15 songs. This was a concept album about communication and friendship, which is still unfinished/unreleased.
FAWM 2020: 15 songs (one blank).
FAWM 2021: 15 songs (14 complete songs, plus 1 placeholder).

I seldom leave "thank you" comments on other FAWMers' soundboards. Therefore, if you leave a comment on one of my songs, I will do likewise on one of yours.

Casio CTK-620L 61-key keyboard
Yamaha PSR-EW400 76-key keyboard
Yamaha P-125 digital piano
Martinez MD-33 TSB steel-string acoustic guitar
SX Precision bass guitar
Monterey MGS-14 electric guitar

    Thanks a lot for your comment! We're re-recording "Going my way"; so the final version will have real drums, real bass and vocalist. No matter of the virtual guitars will stay or not - I'd like to keep that signature sound of the intro. Let's see what happens in the next days and weeks.

    Hi Edward, here's my go-to bass - not that you asked...

    It has a story - 1990, I was broke and on the dole, I needed a bass and our drummer's dad was an old school cabinet maker with a massive workshop. I was sick of borrowing basses, and it got to a stage when I couldn't because we were gigging and my mates were as well, so there was a scheduling conflict.

    So our drummer and me made this. Well, the drummer did the hard work, and insanely accurate routing which I wouldn't have the guts to do. I bought the block of American white ash - because my mate had a Music Man made of the same stuff, I shaped it like a jazzmaster/jaguar/mustang because I like that shape, then P bass pickups because P-basses are my favorite.

    I spent too much on hardware - and the wood cost a fortune, so I could only afford a crap neck. A couple of years later when I was earning I swapped it out with a Warmoth neck, and a later I pulled the frets out. Then last year, 30 years later it finally went to a luthier (shout out to Ryan at Colortone) for its first a set up.

    It weighs an absolute tonne, but sounds amazing, and now plays incredibly well.
