Artist Bio

Influences:   Not sure. I've listened a lot to music by Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, but I tend to be more drawn to a song, rather than the performer, if I like a song I really don't mind who wrote it or performs it.

Live in UK. This is my fifth FAWM, the first year I joined but posted no songs.

This year I will again just write songs and see what happens. Didn't get much done for 50/90 this year, as I decided to try painting, and the switch to visual arts crowded out any songwriting. I hope to have room for both now.

Only going to record simple demos with guitar, due to limited CPU on current computing facilities. But I have been practising a bit so it shouldn't be too bad, I hope.

    Thanks for remembering me πŸ˜€ Yes, after the first year of really going all over the map (on purpose) to explore styles, I do dig on the electronic thing. Good luck this year!

  • @atam94 Feb 8

    thank you for the thoughtful comment on my song! My main reason for wanting to make it a hidden track is because most of the other songs are instrumental. But I will definitely continue working on more music this month and decide later if I want it to be a hidden track or not. Thank you again for the insight 😁

    thnak you for our comments on dont let me fall asleep. he is having a near death experience and the only way home is remaining conscious if he falls to sleep, he is dead. on the other handm he may be dead already and the home he is searching for doesnt exist anymore, and the new home waiting for him may not be the one he expects to inherit.

    Thank you for your kind words.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 4

    my lyrics are only important to me when ii am writing them. when im snging, they are just sounds, part of the music..but the sense of them remains for anyone who cares to follow them.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 4

    thanks for commenting on oh well ah well. yu think it was about the guitar? i thought it was about the lyrics. literally about the lyrics in the sense that its theme was semantics and hw similar phrases can have such different meanings. bu it iss true that this year i have been working more on the guitar parts and the singing than the lyrics.
