Artist Bio

Influences:   I'll get back to you on this.

I am a multi-instrumentalist, singer, music educator, and songwriter from the western U.S.A. 2019 will be my ninth FAWM.

14 Songs in 28 Days!!!

I'll be on the road to southern Utah when the FAWM starts this year, going to the Utah Music Educators Association conference and attempting to run my first marathon. I'll return on the 3rd and should be able to get a few demos up during the work week.

I might return to randomly selected fundamental rhythms this year.

Also I've been lurking the forums in search of ideas. Remaining ideas include:





The tried and true #odd-time-signature


#week1 #clothing
#week2 #chromatic
#week3 #perspective

    Many apologies. My trombone piece isn't developing well and there's not enough time to do it justice now. Much of my time in the first half of the month disappeared into a play... and so I messed up. Forgive me, and I'll try to have something together for 50/90.

    Hi! Thanks for the comments about the song 1984/1985. I also enjoy the open tunings of Joni and others! Tunings like that give me a lot of inspiration whenever I use them.

  • @johncrossman  Feb 18

    Whew, the auntie-sin anti-syn chain is on to you to ANTI this tune--

    Good luck!

  • @susyblue  Feb 17

    Hello indeed I’m tardy too! Struggling a bit to keep up this FAWM but oh well we’ll soldier on!

  • @adnama17  Feb 14

    Oh my goodness, I love it! You have NO idea how much I needed to hear something positive right now. It's been one hell of a day here. Thank you so much!

  • @adnama17  Feb 14

    Those lyrics gonna work out for ya? I giggle every time I read them. Hahaha!

  • @elainedimasi  Feb 14

    Hey Izaak, glad to see you here! (Yet, where else would you be?)

    I'll share Baker Street; send me a gmail @ elainedimasi to remind me after feb.

    Re: "carbs" and your 12yo, just don't tell him about the Urban Dictionary and the song will remain #safeforwork and #childrens-y : - )

  • @edwardsmusic Feb 13

    Ah, you finally got your "rock hands"! If I remember correctly, I never saw you having them in 2018.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 12

    Hey Izaak
    Thank you so very much for your feedback on Borderline. It's a stretch for us perfectionists to put out such raw seedlings. I appreciate your sensitivity and positive energy on that!

  • @adnama17  Feb 11

    Got it.
    Rocket sandwich?
    Did you see my grandkiddo? Talk about feeling old. WTF just happened to half our lives???

  • @adnama17  Feb 11

    My subversive way of getting a prompt out of you. Randomness is the best.
    Like a buttoned shirt, or more of a tshirt?

  • @adnama17  Feb 11

    Will do!
    What color is the shirt you're wearing and what did you have for lunch?

  • @adnama17  Feb 11

    Hey! It's been ages since we've collaborated. I know you are a busy guy, but just thought I'd ask. I'm on a lyrical roll this year, so I can send you some if you'd like. Let me know! 😀
    Of course saying that might just jinx my lyric mojo. Ahhhhh!

  • @lavishdude Feb 10

    Thank you so much for giving two of our tunes a listen! Your feedback is always thoughtful and well-informed, too, so praise makes our tails wag with joy! Happy FAWM.

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 3

    Lurking....a marathon in the dessert! WOW!

  • @adnama17  Feb 3

    I saw that! Golly! I can barely walk to the store and back. We're getting old, Izaak!

    Just posted my first. And I hit 50 during 50.90 last year!!! We all missed you last summer. 😁

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2

    Hello Izaak!

  • @chaplino Feb 2

  • @berni1954  Feb 1

    Thanks for the good wishes. Here's a "Bona Sort" from Catalunya!

  • @apertome  Feb 1

    Good luck to you as well, have a fun month!

  • @rkeeling75 Jan 31

    Thanks for the welcome to the madness. I am beginning to feel a bit of a 'What have I gotten myself into' panic. But you only live once.

    And yes, your comment made perfect sense (hence why I am here) 😀

    Have a great month.

  • @zebraphone  Jan 31
