Artist Bio

Influences:   Beck, Elliott Smith, Jorge Ben, Sam Cooke, Tom Jobim, Beatles, Nigel Godrich, Zero 7, Hank Williams Sr., Prince, Jimi, Beach House, Django Reinhardt, Olodum, José González, Fruit Bats, Johnny Cash, The National, Django Django, Radiohead, Stereolab, The Clash, Danger Mouse, Other Lives, Rolling Stones, Pinback, Ennio Morricone, Bowie, Baden Powell, Bob Dylan's pen, and Schrödinger's cat.

I'm a multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter who's played in funk bands, emo power trios, indie cafe softrock groups, solo singer-songrwriter acoustic sets, and collaborated with DJs. All before becoming a girl dad. I took several years away from music to focus on building a popular crowdfunding social enterprise. Covid life has turned me back to my first passion--music. Influences are many and varied. I will add names as their presence emerges in the work. Most of my former collaborators are in the wind now so looking forward to honing my craft and maybe finding inspiration and collaboration along the way.

    Yeah, my heart jumped when Holly got the the sunlight/moonlight part. I was completely floored. And I was just as surprised as anyone about the toy piano & steel drum compatibility. Thanks for listening!

    I've met a lot of people in the 11 years I have done this and luckily a lot of folks that like to write songs with me. This is such a great place. I really enjoyed your music and will definitely be taking in more. Congrats on the win! 😀

    Congrats on finishing the FAWM challenge! And thank you for listening & leaving notes. Before I was using Reaper. I like the built in electronic sounds that Reason has, and it's arranging tools. With reaper it's a bit easier to edit real audio but I think Reason is nice for someone like me who doesn't mind leaning into some mixing presets. Also the faux analog interface makes a lot of sense to me because I like to visualize things in terms of their real world counterparts. I'd also like to give Ableton a spin one of these days.

    Thank you for listening! Also for giving me the tip to include the original song in the liner notes — it’s there now! It’s a remix of an acapella tune we did earlier this FAWM

  • @erucaesounds  1 week

    Thanks for your kind words on 'To Dream Of Wild Horses', much appreciated.

  • @ozcompr  2 weeks

    Thanks for all the feedback on Pieces and thanks for listening!!!

  • @lizbrinker  2 weeks

    @radiobenedetto that is high praise! Thank you! And thanks for listening to The Major And The Minor!

  • @jgoren 2 weeks

    Thanks for the comments 😀 And especially for recommending my song, means a lot!

  • @hbusse  2 weeks

    Thanks so much for the generous comment on My Dear Heart. I absolutely love the word picture you painted about the voice emerging from a chrysalis. I hadn’t even thought of that, and it was like an epiphany for me when I listened again with that picture in my mind!

  • @sbs2018  2 weeks

    Thanks for the comments on "Andre's Song." And hope the Charley Brown comment wasn't too painful. Ooops!

  • @apolez3 2 weeks

    Well, thanks for giving it a go... I bet it was good..

  • @apolez3 2 weeks Can i tempt you .... just need vocals i wrote lyrics to someone's music, and they said i could use the music with another collab to sing .. nudge nudge lol...

  • @gnashattack  2 weeks

    Thanks for the comments and feedback on "Complex." That line with "aviator ghost" in it is a reference to my first apartment being haunted. I think...? I remember waking up in the middle of the night and very clearly seeing a massive dark mass next to be bed, then moving away from me and through the wall. My boyfriend at the time who was sleeping over said that he woke up at the same time but saw a man in an aviator jacket and glasses looking at us. Spoooooooooky.

    Thanks for the YT link. Wax Tailor is new to me. Coffee Break is public domain do go right ahead. Interested to hear what you’ll do with it. If you sample from my Time For Coffee Break album, please link back to it on my Bandcamp. Cheers!

  • @frozenlonesome  3 weeks

    Thanks for your thoughts on Forty Billion Enemies. I don't listen to hip-hop or trip-hop so I wouldn't have heard them there. This is my third FAWm mining those samples and I think I'm starting to run out. Time for something new.

  • @heidiserwer  3 weeks

    Hi and thanks for our comments on “Distracted.” High-five on your masked profile photo too. 😊 I look forward to checking out your music soon.

    Thanks for your comments, much appreciated

  • @fearlessflight2014  3 weeks

    Thanks for visiting my song. I'm enjoying listening to yours too!

  • @steffan  3 weeks

    Oh man! It would be an honor! Can't wait to hear it!

  • @apolez3 4 weeks

    Yeah.. so If you like anything I ever write to put into like vocal and music that would be extra amazing.

  • @apolez3 4 weeks

    Thanks for the weird tip, i feel inclined to give you one. Well I basically mainly writing lyrics now so ... when I put them down I write what comes to mind thinking maybe in that order, then somehow I seem to play with the words and phrases there re-arranging and Idk words then come to me to add and it's like I sometimes wind up eliminating a lot of potential but just didn't work or wasn't for the good.or other? I had thought of a few words the other day to explain this more clearly but the words are not coming to mind atm.. I mean I would think everyone I suppose does similar.. really I have no clue tho. 😝 Maybe it's not weird enough lol, but .. guess maybe you'll have to discover it .

  • @frenchcricket 4 weeks

    Thanks! There’s basically the clean sound, the fuzz sound, and 2 sort of texture tracks. The latter is low in the mix and with a narrow eq band. 3 of them are double tracked (with subtle differences occasionally occurring).
