Influences: Mainly I think, "The Johns" - Hiatt, Prine, Richman, Ramone. A little bit of Fred Eaglesmith and a sprinkling of Mark Knopfler here and there. Warren Zevon, Jason Isbell, I also like to think I'm influenced by Rick Rubin as well. And a little by my Dad.
This is my THIRD FAWM, following up on my first year’s success, and last year’s COMPLETE CRASH AND BURN (IE ZERO songs written. Tried the RPM Challenge multiple times but only succeeded once. I'm WAY too OCD about my recordings to finish them in a timely manner. Writing, however, causes many much less sleepless nights...
First picked up a guitar at 15ish, started writing songs as soon as I knew chords. Played and wrote on and off (mostly off) for the next 30 years. Built a small humble recording studio in my basement, and started a small, inconsequential music label. I love working with other artists and creating music and sharing it with the world.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
