Artist Bio

Influences:   Jason Isbell, Ryan Adams, Damien Rice, Bob Dylan, Justin Vernon

I have been writing songs for about 15 years, on and off. Currently I write for my band Stephen Tanner and the Runaways. I also write solo music. My main influences tend to be acoustic singer songwriters often with a sway towards country music. I like writing about my own experiences but want to write more creatively about ideas and situations that are entirely separate from me.

    Thanks for saying nice things. I have learned from FAWM that it is MUCH easier to improve a song that at least EXISTS, than to create a perfect song that is not actually a song. An imperfect song at least tells you what you do NOT want in the song. Which is, when you are just starting a new song, just as good as knowing what you DO want. I am so glad you have found FAWM a good experience.

    Awesome! We haven't written many more 'country' songs but we really enjoyed working on this one 😊

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 4

    Your lovely words mean a lot to us! You have blown us away with your songs so far! 😊

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 2

    Most people fly out of the starting blocks and then slow down. You have already written 2 stunning songs in 2 days. If you write nothing for the next 3 weeks, you have won already. And there is always 50/90 that starts after the summer 😉

    Tremendous song!! What a brilliant start to the FAWM challenge. I'm looking forward to posting some stuff on here, but I doubt many will come close to that offering. Really catchy tune.
