Influences: I have a kind of folk-pop sensibility so artists like Ed Sheeran and Maggie Rogers are currently strong influences. I appreciate songs with strong lyrics and a little bit of poetry to them.
I am in my early 60's and for the past 30 years or so, music and songwriting have been my most active avocation. I also like screenplay writing. In September 2017, my first full length album, Firefly In A Jar Of Emotion was released and fully half of those songs came out of FAWM sessions. For the past 12 years, this has been my laboratory. And it is always challenging and fun!
I am not sure what this year will bring. I have songs for an album in mind. I have joined two songwriters groups in my area and I have also joined Drooble, which is kind of an international artist platform at https://drooble.com/michael.gutierrez.... I belong to the Rhode Island Songwriters Association (RISA at risongwriters.com) even though I live across the border in Uxbridge, Mass. There's a lot going on in my area and the energy is very sustaining.
Good to see everyone again!
