Influences: This sounds cliché, but really everything influences me musically. I really love a good solid bass line, a smooth, slidey cello riff, a spirited fiddle, a killer beat... I love to hear non-instruments used as instruments. I LOVE sweet harmonies... echoey electric guitar... Sometimes I squirrel one of these good things into my own music.
2020 = 4th FAWM for me.
I’m excited for FAWM as usual, but also taking my personal music goals beyond February. Just hoping to stay productive all year and have a new album that I’m really happy with by autumn or so.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my piece First Day on Campus. You mentioned the time signature, so in case you're interested, it's 4/4 time, but the cymbals are playing a loop of a single bar containing 3 sets of triplets followed by two straight 8th notes, so it makes it feel syncopated. My version of Sibelius doesn't have the brushed cymbal sound I wanted, so I had to make do with drastically lowering the volume on their loud clashing cymbal sound to approximate what I wanted.
Thank you so much for such insightful comments on run in my space. I am looking forward to delving into your output. God where has timegone?? 😉
Thank you, Leah! Glad you enjoyed Hello Sunshine. I've so been enjoying your songs!
Thank you so much for checking out my songs!

Thank you for those very kind words on Day Nine, Leah. I really appreciate you listening
Thanks for checking out my 10x10! I'm glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate the encouragement to explore some ideas more deeply 😀
Thank you so much for your kind words, and I was so touched to be posted in the recommended songs thread, I sometimes have trouble imagining people enjoying my stuff so it really makes my day to realize there is something there after all. I love that you heard Wolf Parade in there-- I'm not sure I consciously think of them as an influence, but I like them a whole lot!!
🙏🏽🙌🏽Thanks for the listen and the kind words! Loving your stuff so far this year. Can’t wait to hear more!
Thanks for the feedback on my song! such a fun adventure this, eh?

I love what you did to the Tan Van. I'm surprised and honoured you took up the challenge (and the shout-out to MB was awesome!).
Hello! Thank you for coming by to listen and comment! I'll be back!
Thanks for your comment on Holiday and the doo's where stuck in my head for a bit too.
Thanks for your encouraging words on my "Chernobyl"-track! It is very much appreciated!
Thank you for checking out my song! The middle vocoder part was done with Izotope Nectar 2 on a second vocal track - there is a harmony tab and I just plugged in the key of the song and selected intervals to harmonize too. I appreciate you noticing that little production bit 😀
May the song faeries sprinkle you with their muse juice.
I wish you good fortune in the carnage to come.
Looking forward to hearing some more from you this year!
Hey! Hoping for some LeahLeah goodness this year in FAWM! Cheers!
