Chicago, I US   Jan 31

Artist Bio

Influences:   Queer folk musicians; Old Town School songwriters; people I know from Song School in Lyons, CO; and also, like, the Old 97s, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Patty Griffin, Tegan and Sara, Fountains of Wayne, Chopin.

Pronouns: he/him/his or they/them/theirs.

I'm Ethan. Short red hair, rather pronounced black glasses. If you know me IRL, it's probably from Steve's OTS classes or Song School.

White, queer, trans; writer and knitter. I write primarily for guitar, but am saving money and clearing space in a 1-bedroom apartment for a nice keyboard someday.

The songwriting classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music (one of the main reasons I live in Chicago) have kept me writing. I've started attending Song School in Lyons, CO, which has influenced me in an entirely different, wonderful way.

Practically everything I write is capo@2. I'm working on that.

    Thank you for your kind comment!

    @fecknom : a) thanks for the inspiration to take another crack at the wikipedia challenge; b) during FAWM I also start by writing everything capo 2 -- I figure it allows me to move down a bit if I need to, and if I need to move up too much I can always transpose); c) Whoo hoo Old Town School! I graduated high school most of a year early and spent that year before college working and learning there; d) have we crossed paths at Song School? Are you going this year?

    The flute is a chi flute loop I love using because of its syncopation and edgey feel!! Thanks for your comment!

    Hiya. Yes, you said it very very well. One of my children came out as non-binary a few years ago - and the whole pronoun thing was a difficult change I had to make because I love my child. Your comments were very well said, and I even found some wisdom to help me in them. Keep doin what you're doing and keep speaking up, you do it well.
