Influences: Eclectic mix of Beatles, Elvis, Motown, Disco, Stevie Nix, Leonard Cohen, Devil Doll, anything with a beat.
Grew up near the beach in Southern California with a book in one hand and a transistor radio in the other. Wrote my first song with a childhood friend and we called ourselves the Screamie Birds. After a Silicon Valley technical writing career burnout, I started writing novels and then returned to my first love - music. This love for music became clearer after meeting my father and his musical side of the family later in life. So now I’m writing songs, practicing the keys, and having a blast learning everything I can about music production.
I earned a certificate in Music Production and use Logic Pro X, Apple Loops, keyboard some synthesis, and program some beats. Paul Simon said that it’s the sound that drives him more than chords or lyrics. I have to agree. I come by this biologically. As my father said when I met him, “All my kids play the drums.”

Thank you for all your wonderful comments and support this FAWM. Congrats on #14.
Thanks for listening and commenting!
I try to record when the cat's asleep, and not near its dinner time!
Thank you very much! <3 I can see you're from las Vegas, i once was there, and I enjoyed the artificial beauty very much.
Thanks for saving The Look Friends Gave Me from being a zong and for your positive feedback. Glad you liked it.
Thank you so very much for your kind comments on "The Steady." They really mean a lot and it's always amazing to hear that a song really connected with someone else. Thank you <3
Thank you so much for the Major Danby-athon! I’m so happy you liked our songs.
Thanks for your comment on "The Tail of the Bard". Your words are encouraging 😁.
Thanks for the comments on 'I guess....'. but no, my father wasn't named Alan (nor was anyone in my immediate family that I can think of). I am afraid you have the wrong Keeling. Lol
Really glad you enjoyed Boron! I love doing multitracked vocals. If it wasn't so energy and time intensive I could see myself doing nothing but that...
Appreciate the listen, Kathy.
Good stuff here!
What is your driving song called? Is it on your list here?
Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it. I'm glad my song wasn't sappy.
My Mickey Jones has some great music now
You got it! I'll listen to more when I get the chance!
how did you know I´d write a song about my driving in my car? 😀 I just posted it, but forget to mention the screaming part in the song, so it might be a bit boring
Thanks so much for your nice words on my songs!
Thanks for the kind comments! 😄
Thanks for your supportive comments on The Pain is Your, the Wrong is Theirs. I was finally successful in loading my recording as well.
Thank you for the kind words on "Get Yourself Together".
And.... I'm happy you needed that message! The song done it's purpose! yey!! Stay positive!
Hi ! Have a happy fawm! Thank you for taking time to listen to my first fawm song. You rock!
Thanks for listening to my "sleep" song, I appreciate your comments
Thanks for your comment on my song!
He Kathy, your influences made me curious but your soundcloud link didn't work. I got more curious, searched and found you on another soundcloud profile but with 0 tracks. I never wanted to listen so urgently to some tracks of a FAWMer. You're a real marketing champion.
"Everybody Lies" Looking so cool...
Hey! Happy FAWMing!
Happy FAWM 2019! Hope you have a great time and write lots of new songs!
