Influences: Bruno Mars, Jack Johnson, Notorious Big
Second year Fawmer. Really looking to up my overall sound from last years minimalistic approach (just ukulele and voice). I was inspired by so many of you who opened my eyes to what could be done quickly and on your own.
My music is intended to lift you up like a good speech can.

Thank you for your comment on Winter Light Festival. I sent them a copy, but I suspect they've gone into hibernation after another excellent festival completed successfully. 😀
Sorry I wasnt able to get together to collab. I went out of town for a week by the time round 3 got finally started. 😞
P.S. Thanks for your comment!
No extra strings, just the traditional four. It’s a Flea, the soprano from Fluke Company. I love the sound so it’s my favorite!
Thanks so much for your comments and encouragement on my soundboard. You are right that I largely put music aside for a long time. I’ve had a couple of dry spells musically (including almost my entire twenties). I will try to think of it the way you expressed, that I’m more ready for music now rather than beating myself up for putting it aside before mortgages and kids.
keith tell the person you are album sharing. if you and they have 14 review each song with comments and an overall comment. if either of you have less than 14 do that many unless specified if they have more than 14 choose any (i for example prefer my 14 marked as favourites. thats the idea like for like but as an album.
Ugh, sorry for the typos.
I’m loving the relentless positivity in your lyrics. And I put it that way because it’s not a rose-tinted glass positivity; it’s a deliberate positivity that battles against difficulties and recognized setbacks but doesn’t get crushed by them. Your sound is great and genre-bending, too. And thanks for motivating all of us with those skirmishes!
bit late adding you to my watchlist but i have really enjoyed your songs this year so all set up for next year... i still have more of yours to listen to later...
Hey, thanks for listening to my entire story on FAWM! Hope you enjoyed listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.
LOL I had missed the whole Easy Shed thread.
Thanks for all your listens and comments. The last two were a little rushed and completely different to Dan’s style. My songs are less direct, I like your reading of This Computers Not Ok, there is defininatrly a lot of news and current affairs going on. We Can’t Work It Out was a writing experiment having watched a documentary called Flat Pack Pop: Sweden’s Music Miricle, which describes the blueprint of all pop. Worth a watch if you can find it online.
It’s about: “Today, the most successful of Denniz Pop’s motley band of followers is his protégé Max Martin. Max is famously modest about his mixing desk wizardry – but he is responsible for some of the most potent melodies of our time, standing third only to John Lennon and Paul McCartney when it comes to racking up US No 1 hits”.
I hope to record it soon, been sick the last few days. thanks for the comment on she shed
Thanks Keith for your comments on Can I Get to You! Right?? I hear you on the muses moving on. I've had this come up in conversation with other song folk. We are a strange brew ain't we...
Thank you so much for all your comments, the songs are not funded just fun.
Congratulations, 18 songs, I’ve got some listening to do.
Also thank you for your kind words of support. Karl.
Thank you for your kind comment!
Hi Keith - thanks so much for commenting on Seaford. I'm sure Seaford NY is a lovely place, but this Seaford was on the south coast of England which, my memory of the 1980s tells me, was a/ a long way away for a Scottish teenager and b/ not particularly lovely. It's probably a lot nicer now though. 😀
Thanks so much for organising the skirmish fam!! And thanks for your lovely lovely comment on my piece. Happy FAWMing and congrats on already finishing!
Hahah, thanks for the comment and the Van Damme comparison on "Hearts Ablaze"!
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments on my skirmish effort Coffee is for Closers Only. It was a great prompt and I thank you for that too!!
Hi Keith. Thanks I'll check it soon. About the collab - I would love to but I don't have enough time right now, I'm way behind with my song number and my life is a bit stressing. But I'll try to write and upload some songs this week and might contact you later this month is that alright? I would love to collab if it will be possible for both of us, but now I'm over my head.
Sure, but you could also collaborate outside of the random game.
Thanks for your lovely comments on “I fly”, enjoy your FAWM
thanks for your version of rough shape. this last week was quite full in the food and beverage world, what with valentine's day, and some functions as well. i really enjoyed your take on it. sorry it took so long to comment back to you.
Thank you so much for your kind words about my songs Bullied and Birth.
Thanks Keith, like I said I enjoyed your work with Tim too.
Thank you for your kind words on Bosses song
should i send the lyrics privately to your soundboard? i don't see an email ink on your profile....
Glad you gave my "1564" a listen. I haven't done that live a lot because living in Catalonia, most of my audience don't understand English and that song has its subtleties that require a native command of the language. The ones I do live here have to rock so that the audience gets something out of them whether they understand a word or not. Such as the stuff I do with our band
The Saturday Blues Project:
https://player.spotify.com/album/4ovP... oops that's our quieter album for bar gigs.
Here is the link to our more rock blues album
i will get those lyrics to you as soon as they are finished!
THANK you for your comments on "Thought You Got a Good One!" That one was kind of a puzzle to put together, so glad it worked out!
Appreciate the comment, thx!
Thanks for the comment on 'Old Green Shirt'. True story songs do seem easy to write sometimes!
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Tempting Time", I really appreciate it!!
Thanks for your comments on Indigo Eyes and Bike Ride. Much appreciated!
It’s so great to hear your work again. For the record I’m a big fan of your ukelele voice demos! Uplifting is the perfect way to describe your music.
Thanks for your comments on the lyrics to Singer in This Bar!
The boll weevil is a beetle which feeds on cotton buds and flowers. Thought to be native to Central Mexico, it migrated into the United States from Mexico in the late 19th century and had infested all U.S. cotton-growing areas by the 1920s, devastating the industry and the people working in the American South

Thanks for your comments, I need to spend more time in BiaB.
Haha! Yeah my photos are rubbish😉
Thanks for your comments on Never Settle. I only ran for about 40 min, but I had to do my boring job for a while before figuring out chords and recording the demo.
Thank you for your comment on Empty Spaces! I’m pleased you think it melds well - was tough just using phone to record!
Hi! Thanks for the comments and for your recommendation! That was really nice of you.
I hope you have a great FAWM this year!
He Keith, thanks for your kind words. I'm looking forward to listening to your songs.
Hi, Keith! Hope you have a wonderful FAWM. Look forward to hearing your new songs.
