Influences: Beats around the world (specifics below).
When I met my father in my 40s, he said, "All my kids play the drums." That explained everything. Why I loved the Stripper song for the Gilette shaving commercial in the 60s, the "Stripper endings" of Elvis music, tribal music whether Native American, African, Hawaii, or Tahitian dance, Disco, 80s, and EDM and its subgenres and eras.
This family I didn't know growing up were musicians, poets, and sound engineers. And while I've tinkered with guitar and piano, I think of myself more as a music producer who loves to sing and uses the keyboard to create musical sounds and effects, arranging it all into a song. I absolutely love this!

yeah I love the bio story as well
kind of same thing here from a long line of farmers and such
but they all whistle while they work hahah
had a granny that could wail the hell out of a banjo though 😀
the 50/90 page still allows uploads in the rocktober but its pretty barren over there lol
That’s a great story about finding out about the music and drumming in the family as an adult, I was the only musically creative person in my family and they all wondered if there was a mix up at the hospital. Years later I found out that my grandfather’s cousin was a well-known American composer and then I finally felt at home with the music inside.
Thanks for the listen! Anything in particular you want a listen/comment on, or particular type of feedback? I always try to reciprocate. If not I'll just pick based on titles 😁
Thanks for your comment. Sometimes I listen and then comment; sometimes I comment as I listen - it tends to get specific when I do the latter. Looks like you had a pretty successful FAWM - more to listen to later 😀
I have to renew before next weekend. I’ve been on the fence but one publisher offer has probably sucked me back in haha
Hey, Kathy, thanks for listening to my dance music I threw together in an hour just to reach song 14! As far as collaborating, I checked your web site and we are both TAXI members (I may have my first deal in the works). I bet we can team up and create stuff that gets placed. If you want to go to my site and leave your email, we can talk further.
Thx so much for your comment on my Jeremiah song
That's cool. Sending you good vibes to get your novel finished. We would all like to read it by next FAWM!
Glad you liked my song about Naples and DEATH.
I think your idea of heading down to Amalfi is a good one. But the winding coast road there has seen its share of visits by the Grim Reaper too 😜
Naples does have its charm. There is a lot to see and the food is fab. The people are great too, until they get on a scooter or get behind a steering wheel. Do as the locals do and you should be alright.
I owe you a tonne of comments... and I will...! 😀 Thanks for all your kind words.
Thanks for the b-day greetings!
Thanks for your feedback on. “The Day I Was Born”. Yeah vocals are layered with a distortion effect on the double. Also, got a quick little hook and verse written for Hooked if you’re able to send the instrumental. Not sure how collabs are supposed to work as this would be my first on here in FAWMland but my email is mviupresident @ Gmail.
Hi Kathy! Than you for your comment and feedback on my track! I really appreciate it!
Hey thanks for all the feedback and I suppose “The Saint...” lyrics regarding the club express the perspective of most men in the club quite accurately lol. Anyway gonna check out more of your work. You’ve got an interesting story! Gonna revisit all of my FAWM tracks hopefully within Feb and get them all cleaned up, polished on the production, mixed, and professionally mastered for commercial release. Also the track Oz Compr whisper vocals are saying “Oz Compr” 😀. Thanks for listening!
Thank you for checking out my tune! I appreciate you sharing your story on your profile. Meeting your Dad in your 40s sounds like quite a journey. I'm looking to reconnect with my own father and seeing how you've found some meaning through your biological roots is inspiring for me
thank you for all your listening and comments. i havent heard much og guns and roses, so i checked out novemberr rain. it was a bloated orchestral version and i couldnt hear anything of myself in it,,then i found an acoustic version, and i think i nderstand the comparison now. it does sound like the way i come off acoustically sometiimes. thanks again for your encouragement
wow thanks for the nice comment on what had happened was! I perused your blog a bit. I'm impressed!
Hey! Thanks so much for listening to No Regrets!
Hi Kathy, thanks for the great comments! I'm doing ok with some collaborations this FAMW but kind of stalled out on my own songwriting. I'll see you in the songs.
Thanks for listening and commenting on "The Muse".
EmmyLou Harris...yikes. I am honoured. I think I may have peaked!
