Los Angeles US   Jan 2013


Artist Bio

Influences:   80's pop, classic rock, jazz, hip-hop, country, reggae, classical, disco, nu disco, metal, EDM, folk

2019 is FAWM #7 for me.

I'm looking forward to this year since 2018 was a bust for me. I took a break from music in 2018, so I'm out of practice on all my instruments. But I'm going to have fun and do the deal. There's a lot of great music that has inspired me so I know the songs will come.

2019 Goals:
Use chromaticism
More creativity in solos
Record guitar amps
Upbeat dance songs

I sing, play keys, guitar, ukulele, bass and drums. I love collaborating with lyricists, musicians, rappers, anyone. Hit me up.

I'm in Los Angeles, California.

    Thank you for watching my music video to Fireworks! I really tried to get the singing in sync with the audio, I don't think I can get it better, cause I don't actually see that there is a delay. Looks like you've got the eagle eyes fo it:-) Congratulations on eight songs, looks like this is a productive FAWM for you!

    Hiya James! Thanks! I tend to use the same three plugs on my mixbuss.
    First, Native Instruments Solid Buss Comp (it's similar to the Waves Buss Comp)
    2nd is Sonalksis Free G. It's just a gain plug, and I use it to get the level of the track up to where I need it.
    Last is Izotope Ozone 6. In this I generally use the EQ (sometimes just as a basic stereo eq, sometimes as a M/S eq, depending on the track), the multiband stereo imager (I mainly use it to narrow the bass frequencies down closer to the centre of the mix), the compressor, and the limiter.

    I set them in the order that I've listed them here. The NI comp is usually set while I'm recording, and tweaked throughout the entire process, the gain plug is only turned on and set when I've finished the mix, as is Ozone.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the Ben Gibbard comparison! And yes, EDM is CRAZY hard to do well (at least, for me it is...and I've TRIED to make something good it still was barely passable). 😀

    Clearly the trick is to want sandwiches. 😁

    I'm on an avocado farm in the wilds of Limpopo. Nearest town is about 10km North of here. Nearest city is a ways further than that.

    The downside is that it's far from everywhere. But, on the other hand, the upside is that it's far from everywhere.

    If you want to drag your ass all the way out here, you'd be welcome; there's a guest room.

    Thanks for your comment on "Keep Me Warm" James. 😀
    I was pretty happy with it. 😀 The verb is a free plugin. I'll look up which one it was if you want. 😀

    Kudos for mentioning One Direction in the 'A is for ABBA' thread. They're not to everyone's taste, but they should get more respect - after all, they did record the best song ever...
