One man band from Northern Ontario. Known previously as Poptart Hero in 2017 and Barry Goldman in 2018.

I perform everything and record with what I have. I've made 200+ songs since starting in 2016 and have just been going at it, trying to make as much as I can while advancing my music to what I want it to be. I started with bass because of Gene Simmons in 2009 than guitar because of Malcolm Young. I never thought I could write or record my own songs until I listened to Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation, than things began.

For this FAWM I'll just make some tunes and see what happens. I recorded 5 albums in 2018 and indeed to keep at it, perhaps starting my next in February. I want to make something that can take from The Smiths, BAND-MAID, Iron Maiden, BiSH, The Clash and Elvis. I want to make more tuneful music that is fast and has energy and electricity. To me the worst thing a song can be is disingenuous and boring. I aim to not be that as much as I can. I am a harsh self critic because my goal is simple, make good music.

    Aaaaah, I got ya!
    I was more or less talking on behalf of The Wind. Taking on a persona...

    Not sure what you believe The Breeze has metaphores for. Please tell me what you heard.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 2019

    Thanks for commenting on Lost My Way. There's a rock'n'roll song brewing, maybe a couple of 'em. Stay tuned.

    Glad you like Play. Was a hoot recording this song because I kept running out of breath mid-sentence... my rapping days are long gone.

    Hi Kurtis, thanks for commenting on New Year's Day. Appreciate the watchlist too!

    I had a feeling it was you but I wasn't sure! I remember being amazed at how you could come up with so many songs in such a short time, and they all sounded cool, some sounding like actual anime ops haha. Excited to see what weirdness you come up with this year man 😁

  • @mannon  Jan 2019

    Came for the introductions and stayed for the interesting clash of punk, metal, and weeb lol.

    Can't wait to hear what you come up with! : D

  • @tawny249  Jan 2019

    Is this anime inspired rock music? o_o Pure rock isn't my go-to genre, but this is pretty cool. Happy FAWM! I'm curious to see what you'll do.

  • @silvermachine  Jan 2019

    Wotcha mate. Took me a while to find you.
    I've changed me identity aswell, but decided to stick with the Silver Machine moniker here or risk being ignored again.

  • @powerstars Jan 2019

    I'm ready to go! Glad to hear you are as well. My goals are writing up a few songs to finish Lonely Enclave's next album as well as generate some material for a side project and maybe a solo album.

    I'm ambitious this year. 😝

  • @powerstars Jan 2019

    You ready for this, my guy?
