Hey, I'm Jess! I'm 18 and I like to make simple songs from a collection of cheap instruments! I don't really try to do anything new or groundbreaking; instead, just whatever I enjoy and whatever makes me feel like I've accomplished something. I've yet to reach the point where I'm comfortable calling myself a "musician", but some day I'll get there!
I moved to Canada halfway through 2018 so this'll be my first FAWM not in the UK. Because of this, my recording setup will be a little different this time round. Direct input for most things, quiet microphone recordings for everything else. I still don't have the guts to sing around my housemates. How is this gonna work? Good question! I don't know!
Goals this year: sad songs, not sad songs, and lots and lots of zong-busting (especially for fawmlings). I'm writing about the stuff that's gone on in my life for the past 6 months. Noice.
Thanks for your feedback on disconnect. Oddly enough I had that progression in my back pocket for that particular story I needed to process so like 5 minutes into that skirmish I was like “initiate the demon dump” (there’s probably a more catchy phrase for that but you get what I mean).
the goat, the goat, the GOAT!!!
My sis lives in London! There are lots of possibilities for finding acoustic guitars, new or used, in that city, I'm sure. Good luck and hope you find one. (My sis doesn't have one. Just an oboe.)
Cool, thanks for your note! Yes, I heard of Stove already, I should finally check out the music.
And if you are up for it, maybe we could do a collab in that vein? Wishing you a happy FAWM!
