Klaus 13


Helsinki FI   Jan 2013

Artist Bio

Influences:   Good music only. I like good music. I don't like bad music. Bad music is not so good.

Hi everybody. My name is Klaus and I'm a red-faced Finn with a dead animal on my head. It's warm!

I'll probably do mostly fairly simple acoustic demos and collaborate with lyrics writers. I want to write 14 songs but that doesn't always happen. I want to give comments back and that usually happens.

Got no Bandcamp or Soundcloud, I'm not in Facebook, so here's the last song I did in Fawm 2019 if you want to get a taste of Klaus.

"Don't Get Me Wrong":


I hope you all have an Ûber-Fantastic Fawm 2020!

    Thank you so much for the kind words about my songs Caring Neighbours and A Special Moment. Much appreiciated.

  • @ttg105  Mar 1

    Thanks, Klaus! I really love those major and minor sevenths!

  • @katmtl Feb 29

    Hey there! I’m glad you loved Pikachu’s Revenge! You rock!❤️❤️❤️

  • @roblincoln  Feb 29

    Thanks for your comments just now on my Country Garden song. I love Green Tea (your song, not the beverage). OK I like Green tea the beverage but I really love that song of yours! I plan on listening more to your stuff after FAWM ends. (Running to play a show now)

  • @chandra83 Feb 29

    It's lovely. Thank you! 😀

  • @chandra83 Feb 27

    Hey, Klaus! You are welcome to demo "True." 😀

  • @audrey  Feb 26

    Thank you for your kind words about my song Tailing the Suspect. I appreciate them.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 24

    Dear Klaus! Thank you very, very much for giving me the honour and putting "I will never find" to music in such a brilliant way! I love the melody, very catchy chorus and your piano is simply enchanting. I am so happy how the song turned out. Awesome vocal delivery as well, with a lot of emotion… Thanks so much for this wonderful song!

  • @leah0k  Feb 23

    Glad you liked my mysterious song! Ha! I like leaving lots of room for different interpretations...

  • @emartin888 Feb 23

    Kind of you, Klaus, thanks.

  • @billwhite51 Feb 23

    thank you for your comment on the enemy within. you understood it as intended... an application of jungian theory to current politics.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 23

    It was so cool both of us writing music for the same lyrics. I love the perspective that we each had and this is what I love so much about songwriting. To see all the different creative minds at work!
    Keepin' rockin' the planet being You!!

  • @jeustan  Feb 22

    Thank you for listening, Klaus! You've regularly raised me spirits this month with your wit and beautiful songwriting. I love your style.

    Have a great day!

  • @rayboneor  Feb 22

    Thanks! When you say "certain" people, you're talking about megalomaniacs, right? It's funny you should bring the subject up, because Nicolas Cage and I are working on a song right now that addresses this matter:

    I’m giving off an Al Stewart vibe
    She said
    I’ve never felt so alive

    I’m Nicolas Cage
    So imagine my surprise
    When she said I was giving off an Al Stewart vibe

    Like old Jerry Lee
    I love saying my name
    But he’s never known the delight
    Of giving off an Al Stewart vibe

  • @gwyn1234  Feb 22

    Cheers for your response to I Got The Hots! Much appreciated and you hit the nail right on the head!

  • @lvgd09  Feb 21

    Hi Klaus, been busy this week but I'm looking forward to all of the new songs. See you soon.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 21

    Thank you for your heartfelt comment on "Somebody Threw Their Life Away." I didn't think I could make it into a song. Now that time has passed, I'm ready to upload a song based on that poem but done in my EDM style with a different title ("Tonight I Won't Be Sleeping").

  • @scubed  Feb 21

    Thanks so much for your generous comment on my silly little ukulele song! I’m glad it put you in a good mood. 😊

  • @cindyrella  Feb 21

    Thanks Klaus!

  • @mikeb Feb 19

    Thanks for the listen and comment on my song!

  • @aneil Feb 12

    Thx for revisiting for a listen to the demo . Thx for the comment

  • @aneil Feb 12

    Thx for revisiting for a listen to the demo . Thx for the comment

  • @aneil Feb 11

    Hi Klaus the demo for girl with the voice is up

  • @arthurrossi Feb 10

    Once again, thank you very, very much!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 10

    Thanks so much for all your kind and that supportive words, Klaus! In fact, just today I have become father of a small cute boy… 😀

  • @ferry0123  Feb 10

    Hey there Klaus, that's a nice and kind thing to say. Thanks! I'll be back listening to more of your stuff. What I've heard is your acoustic guitar gets you songs pretty fast!

  • @alboe Feb 10

    Hey Klaus,
    I’ve been listening to all your skirmish songs but I haven’t got the time nor the energy to comment on all of them separately so forgive me for taking the easy way out.
    I’d just like to say that your songs and your delivery have such a high entertaining quality that it’s always a genuine pleasure to listen to them.
    They contain lots of tongue in cheek humor but very often there’s also a more serious second layer that goes much deeper and I enjoy that very much. You had me really laughing hard with the sudden twist in Time of the day/Stop talking, I needed that so thank you very much.

  • @treble Feb 8

    Thanks so much for your comments on Have a Great Day. Congrats on having completed ten songs already!

  • @atitlan  Feb 8

    I think expecting me to come up with a title that wasn't the skirmish prompt would really be asking a lot 😀

  • @metalfootlings Feb 4

    The footlings' picture is a couple years old... I (metalfoot) really need to update it for them! Thanks for listening to F2's The Feeling!

  • @rshakesp  Feb 3

    Thanks for saying hello Klaus - I appreciate it!

  • @louiskoba Feb 2

    Hey Klaus, thanks for the motivation. I posted the lyrics to Vegan Evangelist/The Nonprofit Industry, one take demo on its way, hopefully tomorrow. Feel free to use lyrics if you want

  • @kristi  Feb 2

    Hey Klaus! I'd be delighted for you to demo "Trip of a Lifetime"...I worked on the meter for that, so we'll see if it passes muster!! lol

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2

    Hey Klaus!
    I love the idea of a few people writing music to the same lyrics. So go for it! I'm a polyamorous songwriter. 😎🎼😎

  • @oneslowtyper  Feb 2

    Hi Klaus, you know you're always more than welcome to anything I post. We make a great team!

  • @crisp1  Feb 2

    Hey, buddy, I sent you an email. Cheers!

    Terve! Thank you for the welcome and good advice. I am looking forward to this.

    Great looking dead animal, btw. Something like that would be worn in heavy rotation here in Michigan.

  • @chandra83 Jan 31

    Allo! 😀

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 31

    Thanks, Klaus!

    I promise to bring crullers to the next meeting!

  • @robs  Jan 31

    Hi Klaus! Greetings from the future (post climate-change) capital of the Netherlands!

  • @songwritingzen  Jan 31

    Hi Klaus, good to see you're back in the FAWM ring to take another swing at writing some tunes. Good luck mate 😀

    Hello! Thanks for stopping by my Soundboard with your welcome. I'm excited to hear what you come up with this year, and am looking forward to your acoustic demos (and whatever else you do)!

  • @petemurphy Jan 30

    Hiya Klaus! Thanks! All the very best to you, and I hope you're well.

  • @darcistrutt  Jan 30

    Hello to you from our own Great White North in Wisconsin! Hope you enjoy a great February!

  • @bandybum Jan 30

    "Don't Get Me Wrong" - great fun track, makes me smile. Reminds me of a quirky Andy Partridge song.
    Looking forward to hearing more 😀

  • @bandybum Jan 30

    You made my day!

    Being likened to XTC circa English Settlement album? Fabulous. Thank you so much✨

    Love your bio humour.
    Perhaps we could collaborate?

    Wishing you a fab February

  • @ryanbonner Jan 30

    Thanks for the note! Much respect to the not so much social media thing--I'm likewise. I can't imagine 50 songs in 90 days; very cool. I shall watch this space... 😀

  • @odilongreen  Jan 30

    Thanks, and have a good one yourself. No -- a great one! Let's have *great* FAWMs! 😀

  • @pbtaylorjr  Jan 29

    Thanks for your kind words friend. It means a lot to me.

  • @quork  Jan 29

    Hello, Klaus, hope you have an amazing FAWM.

  • @jeyemusik Jan 28

    Thanks for the reassurance that my tendency for the ridiculous won't go too far wrong here!!!

  • @pbtaylorjr  Jan 28

    Hey, Klaus, merry FAWM 2020 to you as well.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Hi Klaus, have a great Winter songwriting time.

  • @jwhanberry  Jan 26

    Hello Klause. Happy FAWM2020. Thanks for listening to my tunes. Glad you liked them. I guess you could say that I'm genre nonconforming. 😉

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 24

    Hey Krause see you in the trenches...
    Have a wonderful FAWM

  • @barbara  Jan 24

    Hi Klaus! I’m really loving your new look for 2020! Can’t wait to see what surprises come forth from you this year...😊

  • @billwhite51 Jan 23

    Klaus, it is unbreathably hot in Lima right now. What is the weather like in finland?

  • @rayboneor  Jan 23

    You bestride this narrow world like a colossus, Klaus. Let's do this!!

  • @cindyrella  Jan 23

    Hi Klaus! I hope we can work together!

  • @oneslowtyper  Jan 23

    Hi Klaus, always good to see you! I'm still listening to all of our songs, as they are in rotation on my music player, and I'm sure we'll be adding to our collection. Here's to your continued good health and happiness.

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 23

    thanks Klaus - happy FAWM! 😀

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 23

    And also to you, my friend!! It's gonna be a great FAWM

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 23

    Onya Cobber, have a fair dinkum go at Fawm.

  • @francessmith Jan 22

    Hello Klaus, looking forward to hearing your songs in February. I see you had a successful 50/90. I failed miserably on that, but hoping to get some songs written for Fawm.

  • @nancyrost  Jan 22

    Always good to see you back here!

  • @kanttila Jan 22

    Mitä? Oh, jojojojojo...hey man I always like to see what you do also. Thanks for always listening to my stuff! It's my ideal to get better every album, that's the spirit that drives me.

  • @crisp1  Jan 22

    Glad you're here, Klaus. I really enjoyed our 50/90 collaborations. Let's see what happens this time! Have a wonderful FAWM!

  • @tcelliott  Jan 21

    Good to see you around these parts again. Let's have another great Fawm.

  • @gemhughs Jan 21

    Hey Klaus Good to hear from you. Congratulations to you for completing the 50/90 challenge. I secretly watched your progress and listened to some of your songs, wondering if you were going to make in time 😀. I'll bet you won't have a problem with FAWM this year. You may even easily knock more than 14 songs!

  • @bitshred Jan 20

    Have a great FAWM Klaus!

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 18

    Love that hat! I am glad that you are keeping your mind warm and ready for all of the creative FAWMing you will do!

  • @jamkar  Jan 18

    Hiya Klaus! Warming up for FAWM?

  • @atitlan  Jan 18

    Hi Klaus - Just saw your name pop up on the forums. Good to see you back for another FAWM. Looking forward to hearing this year's songs.

  • @downburst  Jan 17

    Hi Klaus--it's good to see you still here. Wish me luck this year (as I do you).

    Dear, dear, Klaus! I am so happy to see you'll be here again this year! Always love your tunes!! 😀

  • @oddbod  Jan 16

    ah but you need bad music so you know when you're listening to the good stuff
    you're looking colourful this year

  • @hummingbear  Jan 16

    Looking forward to your tunes!

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 15

    see ya around!

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 14

    I hope you have a great FAWM!!!

  • @lvgd09  Jan 13

    Thanks, Klaus, I got most of my songs mixed up on the records from Bandcamp. In other words, they play in the wrong order. I just found out you can change the song order on Bandcamp, and did so. A good lesson about digital release with the track numbers. I'm finally fully convinced that the best 5 songs need to play first on any album. Since I don't really know which are the best at the time I may consider how many comments the song has when organizing my CD. Thanks, Klaus and see you soon.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 13

    Hey Klaus! Here's to FAWM 2020 and more amazing music!

  • @lvgd09  Jan 5

    Hi Klaus, Happy New Year!
