Artist Bio

I have been writing albums pretty much since I started playing guitar in 2004. This is my 4th FAWM.

I am looking to branch into new territory this year, but I am not exactly sure what that territory is. Current influences and inspirations change on the daily but AFI, Brand New, and Modest Mouse float at the top right now for directions I would like to head.

A note from something I saw in the forums: feel free to leave your comments in your native language. I will run it through a translator and hope for best. Better for you to say what you mean than try to say it in a way I understand it. Or something like that.

    Hello Philip. Thank you for your comments. I thought you had finished already this year. I'm glad I had this opportunity to give comments back in a shorter time than three weeks. ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm a bit excited about your songs this year actually. It seems they all have something I really like. Cheers!

    Hi! Thank you for your comments about the song "the end". So nice to hear!

    Hi PB. Thank you so much for all your comments and support. Sorry to be so late with my replies. The good news is that you are a Winner. And I also noticed that Mnml Efrt wasn't the only album you've done. No, you've done a bunch of albums. I took a peek at the Tales of Love and liked it. I'm going to check them all out, I hope, as soon as I recover from Fawm. Again, I had no clue you've been so productive and so versatile too. Kudos! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for the kind words on my song Something Wicked this Way Comes. Maybe you ARE crazy for also seeing it "with a regular rock drum kit and being a catchy Latin pop song", Lol, but I'd love to hear in my head what you hear in yours when you listen to it, 'cause I'd probably like it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thank you so much for your comment on my song, inducing existential crisis has been a long time dream of mine kkkkkk I'm happy to have succeeded!

    BFD is great. I've been using it since version 1, back in 2005.
    I kinda go through phases. Theatre Of The Absurd was all BFD / samples of real drums, whereas the album before that was all electronic drum sounds from Battery 4. I don't really plan or think about it too much, just whatever feels right in the moment.

    Thanks so much for checking out the TOTA album. So nice of you to listen. As far as instruments go, I use a mix of real and virtual.
    Any acoustic drum sounds you hear will be from BFD3 (although I did a whole album a while back using just a Cajon and a couple of percussion instruments as a 'drum kit'). Electronic drums are usually from NI Battery 4.
    Guitars, bass, vocals, and percussion are usually real (although I sometimes use keyboard bass from various vsti sources, usually something from NI Komplete). Piano is usually Pianoteq 5.
    With the virtual stuff, some of it I play, some of it I program.

    Thank you for your comment. I was going to use โ€˜got a mouth like a bus drivers gloveโ€™ at first but it wouldnโ€™t scan. Badgers Arse is still a common enough phrase though ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @martinneuhold Feb 1

    Thanks a lot for your comment! Melancholy is always something nice...I learned that from Leonard Cohen ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š
