Artist Bio

2020. Haven't written a song in a while, so I'm keen to see what's been brewing.

Album art is a door in Irkutsk, Siberia. Good door, eh?

Always open to collaborations, time permitting.

Have a great FAWM, all.

    Hey Mike I just wanted to let you know I sent an email to you from your website. Hope that works. You might check your spam just in case. Let me know if it arrives. Thanks!

    Re Bojack Horseman, definitely worth sticking with. I only half watched the first few episodes while playing with my phone but once it finds it's stride, it gets really good. I've never seen a cartoon tackle the issues that it does and in such a sensitive but still funny way.

    TouchΓ©. I’m still trying to wrap my head around modes. Rick Beato did a Youtube video on the myxolydian recently that was helpful. Now that I think about it, the drone of the bagpipes is perfect for modal music..

  • @adforperu  Mar 4

    I'm not going to blame you for prioritising food over my music, in fact I'd be annoyed if you hadn't. Thanks for all the comments, and congrats on another stellar year!

  • @oddbod  Mar 1

    Maybe the world will be ready for the matofono and the Casio keyboard next year.
    Perhaps even throw the Koestler Rigaletto in for good measure too.
    Congrats on hitting 14. Until 2021 then.

  • @autoclamp  Feb 28

    Real talk. This lyric is not coming together and I have no time. Are you FAWMing in 2028? I should be free by then.

  • @autoclamp  Feb 26

    Hopefully I as still able to save Rupert.

    Do you still have time to bring a lyric back from the brink of non-recordedness?

  • @owl  Feb 25

    Thanks Mike! Yes that was my NZ song a year or two ago...

  • @autoclamp  Feb 25

    P.S. I loved you in Aristocats and 101 Dalmations, guv.

  • @autoclamp  Feb 25

    OH MY GOD. What have I done? SCAAAAAMP!

    (Scribbles, sniffs, scribbles, sniffs....)

  • @oddbod  Feb 25

    Matafono! that's the one, cheers for putting me out of my misery

  • @oddbod  Feb 24

    Is that funny wind instrument of your's making an appearance this year?
    I can't remember the name of it and it's driving me nuts - I even tried googling your name with various words but to no avail. Though your body-building career came as a bit of a surprise!

  • @hanley  Feb 24

    Hey, thanks for all your lovely kind words, and where to do collect the Father of the year award?
    I've just changed songs to downloadable... I always forget that soundcloud permissions must be changed, not just ticking the box on fawm! Cheers

  • @autoclamp  Feb 18

    Good news: working on it!

    Bad news: judging by your new sweep profession, you may be trapped in a mid-aughts Decemberists song. Don't panic, just beware any mariners, barrow boys, engine drivers, or legionnaires.

  • @nagavaeoe  Feb 13

    Man... I'm a big fan. Wonderful playing and song writing!

  • @owl  Feb 11

    Thanks for listening, Mike!

  • @nancyrost  Feb 11

    Thanks! There's more to come, as I think I just fixed a crucial problem in my recording setup. πŸ˜€

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 8

    You have GOT to be kidding me. Did that person have ears? Our voices don't even sound alike at all! You know, it doesn't surprise me the least bit. It's why I stopped going to KVR---too many freaks. I can't begin to tell you how many PMs I got from people who...I guess just wanted attention or something. Asking me stupid questions like, "Do you think red shoes go well with a yellow tie?" It's like, who are you and why are you PMing me with stupid questions? Leave me alone!
    ANyhow....yeah, don't miss that place at all.

  • @deena  Feb 5

    Thanks so much for your kind message.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 4

    thanks so much for your kind comments on "The Rivers Run Dry"
    We have you all on our minds and hearts during this unimaginable devastation. Yes...lead us to water! I will listen to yours now.

  • @jyllian Feb 4

    Thanks for commenting on my Old Lady song. We humans are messing things up everywhere.

  • @owl  Feb 3

    Hello! Thank you for coming by to listen and comment!

  • @fortelmfield Feb 3

    Hi Mike, good to see you back πŸ˜€ We're back too, although we've got a lot of travel happening this month so we probably won't get a huge amount done this year 😞

  • @judypie  Feb 3

    Innuendo?! Where?? 😁

  • @elainedimasi  Feb 3

    Hey Mike! The RPG has been going since 2007 - our characters have been together for like half their lives now, we feel like we "grew" them to adulthood from right out of mech warrior academy. Yeah, not the most relatable lyric but I enjoyed being able to thank my GM for how hard he works on the story arc and the details. Thanks!

  • @elainedimasi  Feb 3

    Water song alert! Besides you and Crossman, I found a terrific song called "The Rivers Run Dry." Must be something in the water today!

  • @lcad Feb 2

    Hey Mike! I'm back, good to see you again too! Looking forward to the tunes

  • @autoclamp  Jan 31

    I have been a bad FAWMizen, but the cat-ectomy was successful and I aim to do better. I wish to a relatively cool and non-flammable February.

  • @caterwauler  Jan 31

    Glad you are safe. I can't imagine what it feels like there.
    I've heard alarming numbers regarding wildlife losses. Let's hope nature will be able to overcome this ordeal.

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Thanks Mike! I'm still going to be lurking and am hoping to get some listening and commenting in.

  • @jendistad  Jan 30

    it's great to see you back Mike! I always look forward to new music from you! πŸ˜€

  • @philnorman  Jan 30


  • @paulhenry  Jan 30

    . . . and the same to you!

  • @ericdistad  Jan 30

    Hello Mike! It's great to see you back again! I love hearing new songs from you each year! (no pressure. πŸ˜‰ )

    I would absolutely love to do a collab!

  • @scottlake Jan 30

    Cheers to you Mike. Looking forward to hearing a poignant word or two from you this FAWM.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 30

    Mike! Can't wait to hear your music this year!

  • @miltz  Jan 30

    Thank you, Mike.

  • @mdavisto  Jan 30

    Hello Mike. Apparently you are on fire. Stop that, it's silly.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 30

    Hello hello, I'm always happy to hear some tunes from you, even if they have weevils in them! (Was it weevils?)

  • @caterwauler  Jan 30

    Happy FAWMing, Mike, looking forward to your forthcoming gems.
    How are you? News and images from your country were scary lately...

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 30

    The workload things is no joke. On the bright side, I am very close to retirement. When that happens, every month will become February.

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 29

    Welcome back, Mike. Looking forward to your soothing sounds.

  • @resonance Jan 29

    Hey mate. Looking forward to listening to some more 'Mike' this month !

  • @oldlostjohn  Jan 28

    Hello Mike.

  • @oddaustin Jan 24

    I wish you good fortune in the carnage to come.

  • @nancyrost  Jan 19

    Hi, Mike, looking forward to FAWM, hope you're in for number 15! (I'm in Class of '06 too, and I counted.)

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 18

    Hope you're back for 2020!

  • @oddbod  Jan 15

    Mike, hope you're in fine fettle (whatever that means)

  • @adforperu  Jan 13

    Hey man, hope you're about this year
