I've been a working musician spanning three decades now, but I've only written a handful of songs and still consider myself a novice. I'm dying to dig in!
Regarding your "Liar" skirmish song:
Very glad I listened to your link...not sure what's up with the url issue, that's unfortunate.
This sounds great!
I love your voice here, you sang this with soul, warmth, and emotion.
I was swaying in my chair as I was doing my work.
Simply sounds great.
Thanks so much for your comment on "A Story" - yeah I will try that with the lower tempo. Thanks for your feedback! 😀
Thanks for your words on .. Blueprint for Happy
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my songs.
I'm not far out of LA. I live in the I.E. 😀
We have a SoCal FAWM after party. You should come if you'd like. 😀
Thank you so much for your kind words on Forgiveness. I'm very glad hat the meditative quality could be heard in the track. I really appreciate the listen & the comment.
See You In The Shadows…
Oh thank you so much!! Yeah, "The Homesick" was kind of fitting...since while I lived in Virginia I missed Michigan. Now I'm back in Michigan and miss things about Richmond, VA. Since we are a long-distance band..it just fit. I'm so glad you liked "Another Way." That was a fun one to do (when I just have to figure out vox and not all the other stuff too!)
Thanks so much for listening to "You Won." I really appreciate your kind words! And it led me to your songs...which are AWESOME! 😀 Happy FAWMing!
Thank you for listening and for your great comment on my song Bullied.
Thanks for the listen and the nice comments!!! Much appreciated!
Thanks for the comment! And you are exactly right. This thing is a sort of thematic "thing" that was born in some soundcheck and I have given it different iterations, it is interesting to see how things change as they go. Sometimes I make sort of cut up albums of ready songs by cutting out everything but the minimum to keep the atmosphere, here is one such album;
I made it around the pianos I played for this album, which was a sort of attempt to capture consciousness as it was in that certain period of time: https://j-kill.bandcamp.com/album/ruo...
Thanks for your comment on Bucket List - I definitely work best to a theme. If I know what I’m writing about I’m fine, but if I had to come up with 14 different topics I’d soon be flailing!
Thanks for listening and your kind comments.
Thanks for your kind words on Behind the Mask! EDIT: and on all my other stuff... you're too kind! 😀
I think the trick for me is just being patient. Certain things come to the surface and I just build from there. Often times a guitar, bass, or keyboard riff or something. Sometimes a tune or riff comes into my brain and I do whatever I can to get that down, whether that means grabbing an instrument or recording a voice memo on my phone. Best to you!
Thank you for the generous comment on Confessions!! But that’s not me singing 😀
Welcome and happy FAWMing!
Welcome to FAWM, have a great one! This is my second year but it was brilliant for me last year to knuckle down and crack on with giving it a go!
Welcome! I hope that you enjoy! We are glad that you are here. Oh, you will love it then. This is such a great way to just dive in and let the creative mind go. Always surprising results!
