Artist Bio

Influences:   Most anything raw and loud and in-your-face catches my attention. Any genre with the word "Hard" in the name: Hard Rock, Hard Funk, Hard Country, Hard Opera - if that exists, I'd surely like it! If not, I'll probably try to write it here... Also weird, anything that challenges the norm. To me the archetypes for the perfect album are the second and third Mothers albums, "Absolutely Free" and "We're Only In It For the Money".

I really like that @robs included pics of his studio in his bio. I wish everyone would do it. So here's mine:

I would have shied away from this in the past cuz I can never seem to organize the junkiness of it long enuf to take a pic. I always think it should look like a brochure of one of them highfalutin New York studios. Then I saw a video of David Byrne's home studio. There was stacks of shit everywhere! After that, I saw mine with new, loving eyes and relative to Dave's studio, it looked liked Martha Stewart had been through mine.

Anyway, I've strived my entire life, literally since I was five years old, to be where I can sit down at a moments notice, any time, day or night, and record one of those maddening songs bouncing around in my head. I am so grateful to be here now.

I have decided this year to do Fewm instead of Fawm - February EP writing month. Harder to say, but way easier to do. At the end of Feb, I hope to have 7 songs that I can actually release rather than 11 months worth of fixing all the crap I rushed thru.

Alotta old school punk energy coming out this year! I'm pretty excited about that. Gonna go with it...

    Hey there! Re: "Tidal Wave" - that's a pretty intense dream! I've never had such a dream, while your experience sounds like more of an overcoming of fears, mine is more of an escape from reality. . . regardless, thanks for listening and for your comments 😀

    Hey thanks for listening to my song, and for the link to the Drum Tuning Bible! I downloaded it and I'm definitely going to check it out. I haven't tuned my kit since I bought it 3 years ago and I remember tightening everything down thinking "I -guess- that's right?" 😁 Good to have a reference now. Thanks!

    Hey there, I sent you the flourish a couple of days ago via email. Just checking you’ve received it (might it have gone into junk?)...

  • @aneil Feb 19

    Enjoying your stuff! If you have time, wont you have listen to my debut album

  • @mkd  Feb 17

    Hey there, I haven’t forgotten my sitcom-flourish promise! Kids half term now and away for a few days, but it’s there at the back of my mind to try and get done Thursday when we’re back!

  • @susyblue  Feb 16

    Hey thanks for ur comment and love your idea of Fewm - that suits me a lot better think I’ll aim for that!

  • @downfallroad  Feb 15

    Hey thanks a lot man. AIC and DOTN are definitely two of my biggest influences, but I can only sound like me. Glad you like the production. I consider all FAWM songs to be potential Downfall Road songs so I try to record them in a way that they could be polished up later. The drums are the samples from Drum Kit from Hell and I'm literally using the same exact drum beat on all my songs this year since I loath programming the midi drum tracks manually. For album mixes I try harder, but still have a lot to learn. Thanks for listening and happy FAWMing! m/

  • @fuzzy  Feb 14

    Yeah, I recommended yer song cos it made me laugh.
    You have great song titles; I'm gonna have to check out the other two.

  • @mkd  Feb 13

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on My Dog Has Fleas! And yes of course, be happy to provide a harp flourish for your Soccer Mom song! I’ll send you an email and we can link up.

  • @peterfedora  Feb 13

    Thanks for your thoughts on my privilege based song. It was interpreted by you exactly as I had been thinking when I wrote it. I am enjoying your work too. Have a great FEWM.

  • @raygungirls Feb 12

    Glad you found me and thanks for the listens and comments... and, should you have any lyrics hanging around that you'd want to sing to one of the Untitleds that I have up - I'd love to her what ya got!

    Lol, FEWM! Hilarious! That's what I did last year! For me so far it's FSWM, unpronounceable but true: February Single Writing Month 😀

  • @robs  Feb 1

    I hope you will be around in 2019!

  • @hummingbear Jan 28

    Happy FAWMing! Your studio is a working studio, that's the best kind.
