Artist Bio

Influences:   The Tallest Man On Earth, Bob Dylan, Rage Against the Machine, Guided by Voices, Sleaford Mods, Bob Marley. I listen to loads of stuff, it probably all influences me in some way.

I'm Swiss, I've lived in England for too long. I make acoustic punk/folk music, love Nintendo, bright colours, music and muesli.

Hiiiiiii. I'm back. This is my 4th FAWM. I've never actually succeeded and completed 14 songs I don't think, or maybe I have, well it doesn't matter does it? The fact is I've written a bunch of stuff I quite like over the years.

Last year I was travelling around Vietnam and Cambodia and I thus recorded everything live using just my phone. A lot of those songs ended up on my debut album 'Above the Trees' which is on Spotify (https://open.spotify.com/album/0MKy9T...) and Bancamp at theidleowl.bandcamp.com. You can find the original recordings from Asia on the same youtube channel that I'll be posting things on this year. That album was months' of work of me sat in my home studio recording and mixing 7,000 layers of guitars and vocals. Thus I'm rather studio & mixing fatigued.

Because of this, I've decided to make a return to last year's format. I'll be recording the majority of my songs using the handy video setting on my phone while I play them 'live'. That way I can focus on songwriting and performing, which I don't think I'll ever get fatigued of. There may be some full-blown production thrown in at some point, but at this point I'd rather bash my own head in with a frying pan so I doubt it.

I also went through a looooong phase of writing rhyming poems last year, so I'll likely be turning a few of those into songs. hopefully that's not cheating.

Also, I bought myself a piano-keyboard for Christmas and have been busy learning, so you'll no doubt be subjected to plenty of amateur piano playing.

I'm rather excited to see what will happen.

As usual, if you listen to and comment on my songs it's appreciated more than you'll ever know. Where possible, I try to listen back to some stuff by anyone who comments on mine, as that's what it's all about ey?

Cheers,

Clive
