Influences: beatles, anything from the 60s, great american songbook, andrews sisters, of montreal, dirty projectors, blossom dearie, joni mitchell, carole king, rufus wainwright, lauryn hill, magnetic fields, paul simon, sam cooke, sufjan stevens, ella fitzgerald
for me, songwriting isn't about the instruments, for me they're just something i have to overcome to get to the song. the joy for me is in the lyrics/melody/vocal. and especially, harmony and vocal arrangement.
in the past year, i've begun singing jazz out in the chicago scene & would do more if my two young children didn't need me to wake up so early!
my very talented family members, also on fawm:
@joeblomberg (my dad!)
@jonmeta (my uncle)
@vaticanvamps14 (my cousin- he's got an awesome band www.vaticanvamps.com)
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
