Influences: I guess I have a sort of Sara Berailles sound, although I listen to a lot of musicians that play in a different style than I do. I think my biggest two influences are Mitski and St. Vincent.
I'm a 18 year old songwriter from Northern Virginia. This is my third year participating. With being a high school senior, life is pretty busy right now, so I'll try to finish as much as I can! I made it to 14 last year so I think I can do it again.
I have an EP out with a song I wrote last FAWM (Dungeons and Dragging Down the People I Care About) and you can find it on all major streaming platforms!

Hi, Skyler, thanks for listening to our collab, and I'm glad you liked what we did. Yeah, I thought the lyrics were exceptionally smart and I just wanted to make some rock and roll. Hope you're having a good FAWM.

Thank you for the comment! It took a while to record this as I've been feeling very down over the past few days (I'm starting to feel a little better now), so I'm glad the track turned out well.
Thanks for your lovely comments and having a listen to Veil of Reason, much appreciated. If you get a chance have a look at some alternative tunings it does add another dimension to song writing. Cheers Greg

Thanks, Skyler, for the lyric comments on Palindrome. The track is now up!
Went to download your vocal and the link says it's still uploading, you might have to reupload it
took a look on spotify. dungeons song is rocking!
a little teen angsty self loathing suits the tone nicely.
I like your vocals on the song and the whole package works nicely!
like a more melodic Courtney Barnett. keep doing your thing!
Hello Skyler, thanks for you comment on my song, very much appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to listen. 😀
It's been a hectic couple of weeks for me in the aftermath of a car accident (both cars written off!) but I think it starts to slow down tomorrow so hopefully I'll be back to normal tricks. 😀
Thanks for the listen on Ten Thousand TumblingTurds! No songs yet? Get writing and recording as fast as you can, Get it down, get it out, move on. It gets you into the zone and you're off!
Happy FAWM 2020 😀 Hoping we can collab again this year!
Have a great FAWM 2020!
