He/him

Well, that was an uneventful year! I miss the halcyon days of FAWM 2020, when all we had to worry about was that half the world was on fire. Good times.

I've had a reasonably productive year music-wise but I've not actually written that many songs. I spent most it finishing my second album:

This means recently I've spent far too long clicking a mouse instead of actually playing music and I'm bored by it. This will probably mean my demos will be a bit more lo-fi this year! I've got a few new toys to play with - a vocal effects unit, a pocket drum machine, banjo - which I hope will speed up my work flow a bit.

I think that I rely on story/concept songs a bit too much, so I'm aiming to write some lyrics that are a bit more oblique and poetic (cue 14 story songs!).

Check out some other miscreants from my home town of Medway, if you dare:

    Looking forward to hearing some new sounds from you this year dude. Banjo!?! Such a tricky instrument but lots of fun to learn and will certainly add a different texture to your songs. Benji has requested at least one murder ballad/death song/serial killer song please! (He's a big fan apparently!)
