Influences: All music but especially percussion.
Known for writing characters with attitude such as Cyn in “Real Women Wear Red” (who may or may not have been modeled after me - lol), I suppose it makes sense that I would be drawn to creating head bangin’ electronic dance music - lol!
I would like to change it up this year, perhaps by writing/recording more vocals, especially since I rejoined NSAI hoping to focus on lyrics. But, honestly I’m far more interested in production and have been playing around with drumming on my new LaunchKey. And exploring the new features of Logic 10.5/10.6, such as #liveloops, eagerly awaiting Ableton 11.
Guess I will have to see where the muse leads me during the short month of February.
A big thank you to the generous gifter - you know who you are! So touched!

Thanks for your comment on "Fight for you" about 6 weeks ago. A lot of things have happened. I've uploaded the finished version right now. With vocals, real guitars and fuzz.
Fingers crossed! I just submitted a ticket for the 32-bit Massive issue because it's really bugging me.
Bugger, that's annoying. If it's any consolation, the latest Massive upgrade has retired the 32-bit instances and broken Maschine as a result. Grr!
You shouldn't be having issues with Native Access under Big Sur. Hmmm, Wonder what else might cause problems? https://support.native-instruments.com/hc/en-us/articles/3600135156...
Thanks for listening to We Made It! Glad you liked it and glad you also made it to 14! Have a happy 21!
Thanks so much for the kind words to "Periscope Eyes" and "I Don't Love You Like You Think I Do." Can't wait to get the demos out so you can hear them. Congrats on getting to fourteen songs, too! Can't wait to take a few moments and listen to them.
Cheers for the recommendation! And congratulations on hitting 14 🎉
Thank you for the kind comment!!❤️
Thank you for commenting on El amor que calla, I'm glad that you like spanish 😀
Thanks for your comments! So we're both switching styles. I came from EDM and pop, switching more a d more to rock! Happy FAWMing 😀
Pleasure- I see you are from Vegas too! No coincidence intended!
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my song! The Timbaland Masterclass must've been amazing!!! I'm gonna look into it, but I would also like to know your takeaways.
No worries. By "killing me" I meant I laughed out loud.
Thx for the comment on Time to Fly. You killed me with the Charley Brown thing. Couldn't have been further from my mind . . . but Shroeder does have a nice hard electric piano sound.
I'm glad you liked Don't Make me Go to LA. It's really too easy to pick on..
Hey! Thanks for the comment! A surprising comparison, but I'll take it, as I definitely appreciate Alice's music and career : )
Thank you for the feedback on the Mandalorian. Wasn't sure about the vocals so thanks for mentioning it specifically 😀
Thanks for the comment on "YouTube Thinks the Twelve-Bar Blues is Illegal". I feel your pain when it comes to getting claimed on Apple loops; when I uploaded a loop-based track circa 2013 (a few years before I joined) I got claimed and had to dispute it.
Thanks and you are right about his narcissism and how he will never change.. I think I wrote one about that last year.
Thank you so much for listening on kind comment(s). I know the EDM stuff is more your realm, I'm just experimenting. Been meaning to take a listen soon to your stuff.
February 23. Mark your diary!
(Ableton just announced Live 11's release date.)
Thank you for the listens and delightful comments. Loving the studio setup in your bio btw! Need to get me some pink disco lights 😍
Thanks for the remarks on my song "You're Completely Incompetent" -- it wasn't about all YouTubers, just ... you know ... the incompetent ones ...
Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
Thank you for the kind words on "The Cruelest of Fates", Joplin meets Dylan is beyond flattering!
Thanks for your kind comments
Thanks for the comment on The Best Me!
Hey there, friend. Now I'm going to thank you for lending your ears to the jelly factory's latest. Very much appreciated!
For at least a while, all of the Soundcloud links were down. You may have been able to get in because you were "logged in"--non-members are not. Another person also commented on it to me. There was another site not working also, so it might have been some kind of FAWM site glitch. I THINK things are okay now.
Live 10 dropped on February 6th 2018, and they announced the date three weeks earlier - so I'm guessing if they follow the same sort of pattern we aren't going to see Live 11 before FAWM finishes. But I live in hope of being proved wrong!
Thank you for your feedback on "Mildred Is Free".
Hi! I've read in one of your posts in the forum that you took Pat Pattison's course. I didn't know he had one. I have read his book "Writing Better Lyrics" and I really enjoyed, I even got a song out of it as much as I can remember. I would love if you could give me some info about how it was, what do you think his course will help me with etc... I know I can do my own research but it's always good to hear from real people. And I also like your music so it would be cool to hear what you have to say about him and the course.
in 72, haight street was nothing like it was in 68. maybe the city recreated some of the vibe for the tourist industry. when you lived in SF, did you know of a place called the Artaud Project? you should check out the movie he last black man in san francisco. it is all about false memories of the city.i is worth watching for the screwed up geography alone.
sbs2018 you could be right about that. Have to come up with something like "All my best Bos are in rest homes" for the woman's chorus.
You're welcome to try! 😀
my dad retired in orlando, and i used to visit im a lot when i was living in boston. impossible to find a decent cup of coffee anywhere.
my guess us that you lived in or around santa ana. i lived in west hollywood but had a girlfriend iin huntington beach. i also lived in cocoa beach florida. you can see my family property here on the cover of my bandcam album lovely places. was in a childrens theatre group in melbourne, playing the adult roles and tteeagers at surfside playhoise in cocoa beach. my dad worked on the apollo mission, where where you in florida?
Thanks for the kind words on "Take a Little Time".
Hey there. Good to see you got your rock hands!
Retro Sally... it's just a title to fill in the Space, but apparently the title itself has people's interest. It does need lyrics and a melody line. Lyrics and Vocals, If you are interested let me know?
Thanks for the comment!
looking forward to hearing your new sounds, i just about exhausted my guitar ideas last year. hoping to find new inspiration in the piano, which i havent played in decades.
Hey there! Stopping by to say hello. Your set up looks groovy! Love the ambience. Hope all is well and happy FAWM to you.
Good to see you here. Happy FAWM!
The last two! That's epic.
🤘 Ready for my fix of some groovy Screamie Birdies! Happy fawming!
