Ancaster CA   Jan 2014

Artist Bio

Influences:   Green Day, REM, 54-40, Bob Marley, English Beat, Cake, Corb Lund, Madness, The Offspring, Sinead O'Connor and all the classical music I played on my violin and piano in high school. Oh, and did I mention Green Day?

I did my first FAWM in 2014 and have participated every year since. I am a dabbler who plays piano, guitar (thanks to @devin), bass, ukulele and violin, but expect that most songs will be accompanied by guitar. My studio consists of my laptop in my office.

    Thanks for the comment on Time (slips), appreciate it.
    Yes, it really was a Kala Fretless U-Bass (Uke bass) run through a Zoom 506 Bass Pedal on 1 of the Bass Synth patches.
    Was fun trying that out.

    I liked Sweden too, but they kicked me out. I didn't have a valid working permit, and when I went to the police to plead my case I had a black eye from playing squash the day before - didn't make a good impression.

  • @pumpkinhead  Feb 18

    Thanks so much for your lovely comments, they make me very glad.
    Peace sister

    you're welcome!

  • @emplate Feb 18

    Thanks for the comment on "Hearts Ablaze", I really appreciate it! I was aiming for kind of an emotional delivery. If it sounds commanding, I'll take it, it fits well, too : )

  • @edwardsmusic Feb 18

    Thanks for commenting on my song "Where are You Now? (So Far Away)".

  • @porrectus  Feb 18

    Thanks for the comment on On with the Show, I appreciate it.

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 17

    I kinda have a "thing" for cowbell and not being a drummer I use it freely for fun. Thanks for your visits today!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 17

    Oh, you're very welcome, and thank YOU for your kind words. I've listened to more of your songs, but I'm having to do my listening/commenting a bit differently this year due to my laptop giving out, and having to do most of my listening on my phone while moving around. I'll get around to commenting on your others as soon as I can. Loved the one about your dad's fez.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 16

    A special "thanks" for your comment on "chickens" and liking the bass line. That bass took me 20 takes because I'm incompetent! (the piano was one-shot) But I thought it was worth it also!

  • @matthew62  Feb 16

    Thanks for listening Sail Away and for your kind comments.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 15

    Thank you for taking time to listen and leave great comments! 😀

  • @philmcmill  Feb 15

    Hej! Hur mår du? Thanks so much for the very nice comments you left on several of my songs! Wow, you move around. - you were in Canada, then Sweden, then back to Canada. I lived in Sweden for a year (back in 85-86).

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 15

    Yes it is improvised but Dani was messing around so my head got stuck on a few lines haha. Thanks for the kind comment

  • @dutch1967 Feb 15

    Thanks for listening to Lullaby. I know Vday is overrun with sappy songs, I tried to make mine toothachingly sweet.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 14

    "Strum My Uke" not playing. The dread soundcloud warning: "You have not provided a valid SoundCloud URL. Learn more about using SoundCloud players."

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 14

    Thank you for the comment on hideous pink-song 😀

  • @sheamiejay  Feb 13

    If you look for me on Revebnation (Jamie Shea) my concert listings are there. About to create a Bandzoogle site. I’ve never met a FAWMer in real life. That would be cool.

  • @sheamiejay  Feb 13

    It’s JamieSheaOfficial on FB for artist and Sheamie Jay for personal (sometimes music too)

  • @dutch1967 Feb 13

    Hej thanks, glad you like Play and Skid Row. I'll be checking out your songs in a minute, very intrigued (mycket intrigerad) by the title Skåne Waltz.

  • @sheamiejay  Feb 13

    Thanks. Danny Michel is no slouch.

  • @ductapeguy Feb 13

    Your kind comment and your song recommendation made me tear up. .. again. Thank you.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 13
