Richard Provan 8


Whitehorse CA   Jan 2017

Artist Bio

Influences:   Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Steve Earle, David Bowie, Counting Crows.

Hope you all have a fun and rewarding FAWM 2020.

FAWM 4, work has been all encompassing, so this year will be a challenge to carve out time. On the bright side I have a great new mic (AKG C414) so even if I don’t take two days to record a demo (I know, I know), my one-mic takes should be good quality.

I’m on a heavy Fred Eaglesmith kick these days, preparing for a tribute show, so it will probably influence my writing, which isn’t a bad thing. 😀

I’m happy to receive constructive criticism on my songs.

Pronouns: him/his.

    was just touching, I'm glad I thought instantly of your tune! haha.

    Thank you for the kind words on my songs Don't Get Caught and Jealousy. It's appreciated

  • @majordanby  4 weeks

    Thanks for your lovely feedback. I got a nasty chest cold mid feb and my voice is broken so gave up this year. First failure in my 10 years here. Ho hum.
    There’s always next year!

  • @johnstaples  5 weeks

    Thanks for your kind comment on Shining Light! A friend and fellow FAWMer @grayland just added harmony vocals for me!

  • @dzd  5 weeks

    no problem! thanks for sharing the music!

    you should be happy there's real quality stuff here (your setup does sound great) you know all that good stuff that never makes it to airwaves.....if those even exist anymore hahah.

  • @dzd  5 weeks

    Thanks for your listen and comments!
    Oklahoma man...I had actually forgotten about that one until a few days ago hahah its on the list to get music pronto...think I got something I can make fit 😀.....

    it's just soooooo wordy not my typical write, I'll never remember half of it so no issues performing it anywhere hahah, but yeah they'd probably drag me out of state....behind a truck with nuts hanging off the bumper no doubt 😉

  • @spunky4455 5 weeks

    Hi, I'm happy you liked my Democracy song. Been so wrapped up in writing and stuff this month I nearly forgot about this one. It was a fun style to do.

  • @standup  5 weeks

    Thanks for listening to Angel. That guitar sound heavily featured a pedal called Julia that does a pitch warble kinda thing. Seemed to fit.

  • @dzd  5 weeks

    Haha yeah I was mad at myself for even reading all that lol

  • @oldlostjohn  5 weeks

    Thanks for your comment on "Garden Doors". And I'll tell you a secret, I borrowed the "wicked are safe among the blind" line from Truman Capote. It's from "The Headless Hawk", one of his early gothic stories.

  • @drivelmonk  5 weeks

    haha, honestly, it's prolly my fault for feeling compelled to pitch correct the solo. Sounds a little too "on." 😀

  • @drivelmonk  5 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words, quork! But one tiiiiny little thing! Twas a real sax!

  • @natalieedelson  5 weeks

    Thanks for the kudos on sadheartomine - no rendezvous letdown here (I’m in Mexico ) fawm on!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾!!

  • @dzd  5 weeks

    Just how time rolls sometimes hahaha

    thanks for the great comments! I'm actually really happy with how that's turned out? going to turn out? haha! I've wathed ya can tell I'll like just from song titles/tags I'll return 😀 sleepytime

    Your comment on the “Unauthorized Collaboration” thread was excellent - it showed appreciation for the OP’s feelings as well as compassion and empathy for the FAWMling involved.

  • @nahlej381  5 weeks

  • @siebass  6 weeks

    No worries, I got plenty on my plate to get moving this year, just figured I would offer. Glad to see you back again this year.

  • @zecoop  6 weeks

    Thanks for the listen! Actually SWG name checked me... 😃

  • @oldlostjohn  7 weeks

    Thank you, Richard. "Further In" is my favourite too and "Dream Cafë" certainly one of Greg's best. Big big fan,

  • @scubed  7 weeks

    Thanks so much for your kind words on “Summer Heat Blues”! @bradbrubaker gets the credit for the Summer/Winter framework - I kept those lines from Brad’s “Summer Heat” when I morphed his song.

  • @alg123  8 weeks

    Hi Richard! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for your kind words on my uncertain song - I appreciate it. Also, thanks for putting your pronouns! Great idea - I'm going to go add mine. I look forward to listening to your FAWMness!
