Artist Bio

Influences:   I've been influenced by lots of great artists both famous and less so across a range of different genres but Americana and Roots Music have probably had the most affect on me.

I've been making music of one kind or another since my early teens including over 25 years in bands and many collaborations along the way. I've had most success with Country orientated material but like to venture beyond that when the opportunity arises.
This is my first year on FAWM but I have contributed before in various co-writes with other FAWMERS. I'm looking forward to the challenge and to hearing other people's new songs.

    The words are beautiful!

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Mar 3

    ThAnks for the nice words. Will I see you in London?

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Mar 2

    I am SO sorry I never got 'round to writing lyrics for Whichever Way The Wind Blows. I chickened out because I was afraid of messing up a pretty song. Not confident enough yet. Maybe next year.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 28

    Tim wrote most of his best songs on the first two albums, but his singing never stopped getting better. His voice was spectacular for the 1980 concert referenced in this song, but his between song patter and antics was horrifyingly out of control.

  • @cuzinchuck  Feb 27

    I finally recorded my own version of "You Know of Whom I Speak".... changed the lyrics a bit. Also had to transpose to G to fit my voice. Hope you like it.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 25

    i have to admit i was emulating van at the rave up on
    the tail end of i wonder if i could love yo again. thanks for listening and for your perceptive comment.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 24

    Thank you for your comments on Alive - and I agree, there are not enough songs about first responders. It still blows my mind the risks people take daily as a part of their job and I am so grateful to them.

    Thanks for your comment on our
    zing song!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 16

    You certainly can!

  • @cuzinchuck  Feb 15

    Love your re-work of "you know of whom I speak". The HIgh Noon reference is clever, and fits with your style. I think when I perform it, I'm going to do a quote Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" - a little more hopeful, and that fits with me Also, I think in live performance, I'd repeat the last line of the last verse just to underline it.
    Send me the chords when you can. Thanks!

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 15

    Hi. Thanks for the nice comment on I Would Have Let You Go.
    I know I said I'd try some lyrics on your instrumental but I've been side tracked! I'll get on it soon, I promise.

  • @cuzinchuck  Feb 15

    Loved the Hank Williams vibe of the music you put my lyrics to. It's brilliant! My biggest problem is that you have to have some pause between the verses. They seem very piled up one after the other so a listener doesn't have time to digest/process the words
    Reference Richard Thompson's "Hots for the Smarts" and how he performs it. ( Though it's a totally different topic, It's a "list" song even longer than ours. He breaks it up every other line, plus he has a chorus. We can't break up our song that much, but its hardly ever wrong to be influenced by Thompson 😀. Giving space between the verses gives a chance to let the humor, dark as it is, come thru, too. Whew, I've spoken a lot of words here. Short version - Love the Hank Williams vibe, just put a couple of bars of instrumental between the verses. Thanks
    (And my name is Charlie McShane)

  • @cuzinchuck  Feb 14

    Sure, go ahead and write the music to "You Know of Whom I Speak".
    Nothing is written in stone, so if you have to adjust or rearrange words to make the music fit, so be it.
    I considered writing a chorus or at least a refrain. I might still do a refrain , (feel free to suggest one), but for now I'm thinking of this as a performance piece, and am thinking of musical cues between verses.... like a few bars of "Hail to the chief", "America the beautiful, "this land is your land" etc.

  • @mikeb Feb 13

  • @defaultdave  Feb 11

    Thanks for the comment on "A Ticket a Casket". Glad to hear the chilling effect got to you, this song after all is best listened to an ice bath in a dark room in an abandoned old house.
