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.
Thanks, Klaus! I really love those major and minor sevenths!
Hey there! I’m glad you loved Pikachu’s Revenge! You rock!❤️❤️❤️
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)
It's lovely. Thank you! 😀
Hey, Klaus! You are welcome to demo "True." 😀
Thank you for your kind words about my song Tailing the Suspect. I appreciate them.
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!
Glad you liked my mysterious song! Ha! I like leaving lots of room for different interpretations...
Kind of you, Klaus, thanks.
thank you for your comment on the enemy within. you understood it as intended... an application of jungian theory to current politics.
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!!
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!
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
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
Cheers for your response to I Got The Hots! Much appreciated and you hit the nail right on the head!
Hi Klaus, been busy this week but I'm looking forward to all of the new songs. See you soon.
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").
Thanks so much for your generous comment on my silly little ukulele song! I’m glad it put you in a good mood. 😊
Thanks for the listen and comment on my song!
Thx for revisiting for a listen to the demo . Thx for the comment
Thx for revisiting for a listen to the demo . Thx for the comment
Hi Klaus the demo for girl with the voice is up
Once again, thank you very, very much!
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… 😀
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!
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.
Thanks so much for your comments on Have a Great Day. Congrats on having completed ten songs already!
I think expecting me to come up with a title that wasn't the skirmish prompt would really be asking a lot 😀
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!
Thanks for saying hello Klaus - I appreciate it!
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
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
I love the idea of a few people writing music to the same lyrics. So go for it! I'm a polyamorous songwriter. 😎🎼😎
Hi Klaus, you know you're always more than welcome to anything I post. We make a great team!
Hey, buddy, I sent you an email. Cheers!
I found the house of the Klaus! 😀 Have a wonderful FAWM!
It's wonderful! Thanks.
Hej! Glad to see you back! Have a fun FAWM!
Hav eone awesome FAWM Klaus <3
Great humor - shines through in your dont get me wrong song!
Sure Klaus! Happy to see you!
Klaus, it's great to see you here. Looking forward to your clever machinations this year!
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.
I promise to bring crullers to the next meeting!
Have a fantastic FAWM!
Hi Klaus! Greetings from the future (post climate-change) capital of the Netherlands!
Hi Klaus, good to see you're back in the FAWM ring to take another swing at writing some tunes. Good luck mate 😀
Have a great FAWM!!
Hi Klaus! Cheers to a cheery FAWM!!
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)!
Hiya Klaus! Thanks! All the very best to you, and I hope you're well.
Hello to you from our own Great White North in Wisconsin! Hope you enjoy a great February!
"Don't Get Me Wrong" - great fun track, makes me smile. Reminds me of a quirky Andy Partridge song.
Looking forward to hearing more 😀
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
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... 😀
Thanks, and have a good one yourself. No -- a great one! Let's have *great* FAWMs! 😀
Thanks for your kind words friend. It means a lot to me.
Hello, Klaus, hope you have an amazing FAWM.
Thanks for the reassurance that my tendency for the ridiculous won't go too far wrong here!!!
Hey, Klaus, merry FAWM 2020 to you as well.
Thanks for the warm welcome!
Hi Klaus, have a great Winter songwriting time.
Hello Klause. Happy FAWM2020. Thanks for listening to my tunes. Glad you liked them. I guess you could say that I'm genre nonconforming. 😉
Hey Krause see you in the trenches...
Have a wonderful FAWM
Hi Klaus! I’m really loving your new look for 2020! Can’t wait to see what surprises come forth from you this year...😊
Klaus, it is unbreathably hot in Lima right now. What is the weather like in finland?
You bestride this narrow world like a colossus, Klaus. Let's do this!!
Hi Klaus! I hope we can work together!
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.
thanks Klaus - happy FAWM! 😀
And also to you, my friend!! It's gonna be a great FAWM
I, similarly, approve of your influences. 😁
Hi! Good to see you. Thanks for your notes oon my sound board. Yes, I'm in for a new Fawm too!
Onya Cobber, have a fair dinkum go at Fawm.
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.
Always good to see you back here!
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.
Glad you're here, Klaus. I really enjoyed our 50/90 collaborations. Let's see what happens this time! Have a wonderful FAWM!
Good to see you around these parts again. Let's have another great Fawm.
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!
Have a great FAWM Klaus!
Love that hat! I am glad that you are keeping your mind warm and ready for all of the creative FAWMing you will do!
Hiya Klaus! Warming up for FAWM?
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.
Hi Klaus--it's good to see you still here. Wish me luck this year (as I do you).
Haha yes I've got my whole percussion box ready to go...I look forward to hearing your concoctions Klaus!
Hey Klaus! Happy FAWM 2020!
So good to see you again, too! Can’t wait to get started!
Dear, dear, Klaus! I am so happy to see you'll be here again this year! Always love your tunes!! 😀
ah but you need bad music so you know when you're listening to the good stuff
you're looking colourful this year
Looking forward to your tunes!
see ya around!
have the best FAWM this year!
I hope you have a great FAWM!!!
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.
Hey Klaus! Here's to FAWM 2020 and more amazing music!
Hi Klaus, Happy New Year!
