Phil Mills 17


North York CA   Feb 2010  

Artist Bio

Influences:   50s, 60s & 70s folk, country, pop, and rock.

I was the typical consumer-only music fan until getting involved with the filk* community in 2004. Since then, I've spent a lot of time on original music, writing and performing.

*( )

Outside of music, my activity usually involves computers, cats, cameras, and science fiction and fantasy literature.

[Things happened....]

Update for 2021: At this point I feel optimistic about the coming FAWM. (I almost hate to say that, given the surprises of the past few years but...there you go.)

  • @calicocat Feb 28

    Thank you for your comments on _Cantor for Pearls_! I am glad to know the triple rhymes on the verses worked for you; I worry that primes people for a silly song rather than a serious one so it is nice to know that it worked.

    Thank you! Yes, the ending is clipped, but just by seconds. I could have let that last chord ring.

  • @wylddandelyon Feb 26

    Oh, what an interesting idea, to do An Onomatopoeia for Life as a round. It might well work, I'll have to try it! Thank you.

    Congratulations on hitting your 14th song! I'm trying hard to catch up.

  • @ceilidh  Feb 16

    Thanks for your kind words about "Who's in the Chimney?" -- the music is now posted.

    I've been contemplating a song cycle, but didn't think to expand this particular idea. Intriguing. I might even have a start on song no. 2 now that I think about it!

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 12

    Resigned is it. Too exhausted by it all to be angry any more. Just despair.

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 10

    Phil, I think your observation about Smallest of Things's metatextuality is a good one. That perspective hadn't occurred to me TBH

  • @rwhosings  Feb 9

    Thank you for coming back and listening to my new stuff. Hopefully I can play it for you in person before too long.

    Hi Phil! I hadn't thought of a kazoo for the bridge. I might have to see if I can dig one up. We hid them all back when the great grandkids were staying here. 😀

    Yeah having a song to break the ice is great. As it turns out I now have two. I don't think that means I can slack off though.

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 1

    Very Irish folk feel to your songs. If you have nor listened to Christy Moore then you certainly should.

    Good to see you back again Phil! I look forward to hearing new songs from you! Have a great FAWM!
