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.

    Peace sister

    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 : )

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

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

  • @petemurphy  4 weeks

    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.

    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!

    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).

    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 5 weeks

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

  • @timfatchen  5 weeks

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

  • @acousticmaddie  5 weeks

    Thank you for the comment on hideous pink-song 😀

  • @sheamiejay  5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

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

  • @dutch1967 5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

    Thanks. Danny Michel is no slouch.
