I’M BACK LIKE ACTUAL BACK LIKE BACKSTREET’S BACK to scream some weird folk harmonies over mundane lyrics about ice cream in the rain or something. I have no idea what I am doing but whatever it is I will sure do it because it is February.

HOwdy fellow Kiwi!! loving your work dude
With unwellness, I've been lucky the last few years. Since using CPAP, sinus infections and colds stay in the sinuses, and don't migrate to my lungs as often as they used to. But I still get a deepening of the voice that seems to have lent itself to Break the Ice. I'm just glad I'm back to singing without making a mess.
Congrats on the win! You had an amazing FAWM!
Thanks for your very kind comments regarding Sick and Dread. I truly appreciate you taking the time.
Congrats on your win! You rocked this!!
Thank you for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Identity' 😀 that one was quite a journey...
Also thanks for your kind note, it is my first time at FAWM and it's been an absolute pleasure because of wonderful, encouraging souls like you. My goal is to make it 50 songs... hopefully the muse plays along...
Skirmishes are fun too, somehow this brain works spectacularly well, when under a deadline....
Thank you so much for your kind comments on 'Paused'. The event truly was a proper nightmare of sorts....
Hey! Thanks so much for your comment on Light of Night! Really touched by everything you said, thank you!
Thanks for the comment on "I Can't Remember Don't Ask Me About It"!
Thanks for your comment on my first skirmish! I haven't thought that much about the lyrics. Just wrote whatever came into my mind.
Thanks for your comments on my Leonard Cohen style song - "The Parting" - You totally nailed what I was trying to do with it (within the time constraint of an hour).
Thank you so much for your kind words about Christmas Time Is Here Again! You made my night!
Looks like you're having a great album writing month. Thanks so much for your nice comments about "Hi Ohio." It's my first FAWM. What an experience it's been.
When I leave comments, I'm never sure whether I have engaged critically with the artist's intent, or I'm just making shit up. Bachelor of Arts, amirite? Pleased that, at least, you appreciate the engagement.
Neekerbreekers are Tolkien's take on cicadas. I could hear 'em.
Oh, and switching from cleans to growls to cleans took a VERY long time to learn... I still haven't mastered it, but it definitely is one of my special skills. 😀
Lol. I'm a pioneer in psychedelicgrowlfolkmetal! Hooray! 😁
Glad you enjoyed it. I'll be checking yours out soon. Can't wait to see what you did with it.
Enjoy your drugs!
Thank you for your kind words about "The Game's Afoot." If I had a bucket list, one of the things on it would absolutely be getting my hands on a trove of pre-1996 recordings of I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue with the historical cast, holing up somewhere and giggling uncontrollably for a couple of days on end. I've actually only ever heard a single Mornington Crescent segment, and as you can tell by the fact that it (purportedly) featured the automated voice from a GPS receiver, it was relatively recent.
Actually the same goes for Just A Minute and some of the other Radio 4 panel comedy shows. Other than one or two exceptions (I can only think of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!") we have nothing like that in the States.
Thanks for the comment on "You, The Screamer." It's actually about mothering my 2 year old and his shitty sleep habits, so you really got it with the intense frustration but also love. I'm glad it came across! 😀
Thanks for checking out "Swimming in the Sun"!
Thanks for checking out Flight Risk! Standup did a great job on the guitars!
Thanks for your glowing compliment on my first track this year and for following. Congrats on your progress. taking a listen to your tracks right now
Wow, thanks for all the comments! And the compliment on my vocal diversity. I really appreciate it!
Looking forward to hearing Black Magick. 😁
Mine? I might try a folk song. That's probably the least "me" of the 3 options you gave, which is the point of the challenge for me.
Gonna try to think folk thoughts now. Or just hit up YouTube for examples of folk-y things.
Thanks for the prompt! This should be interesting! And also possibly disastrous lol. 😝
Hey! We've been paired for the reciprocal challenge! I issue you the following challenge:
Create a FAWMtronica song!
If you don't have access to any synths/DAWs/etc. then the challenge is instead:
Write a song with the title, "Black Magick!"
Have fun. I look forward to seeing your challenge for me!
Thank you for your great comment!
Thanks for commenting! I haven't thought up any song names or anything yet, and I'm not really sure how to label my music besides "electronic", so I just leave it blank.
I've never been to NZ, but my wife has... she went there for a birdwatching trip a few years ago, and saw all kinds of awesome birds.
Thank you for your kind words and for listening to "Bridgemen".
Ha, thanks, the evolving vocal line in From the City Lights, was more a result of recently making up the part and faulty memory, than ingenuity.
Thank you for commenting! My first FAWM, but definitely not the last!
Thank you for your lovely comment on my lyric.
So glad you were diggin' on my harmonies for "anywhere anytime is fine" Sometimes those prompts just pop my head open. This one was an unexpected surprise! Thank you for your comments. 😊
Right now 10PM Saturday Night
I think I'm going to let the Skirmish fade, but I'll be up for a while if you want to toss ideas.
Thank you for your words on "Going my way". I like how you describe that sound and feeling. Couldn't have been more poetic!
Thanks for the listen and comments regarding They'll never get their Hanes on me. Much appreciated.
Thanks for the 3196959 nice comments!! I literally live for writing problematic bops. I would love to be your friend <3
Thanks for you kind words. I’m looking forward to coming back to Little Words.
I enjoyed your lovely thoughts on my song “Waves.” They were especially gratifying to read because you really seemed to get what I was going for with the piece beyond just the surface level. Thank you very much! 😊🙏🏽😊
Thank you for listening to my song. I hope you enjoyed eating garbage. I always do!
Thanks for the kind words on "Postcard from Missoula." Part of what I love about FAWM is the good vibes, and it's helpful to know that someone would buy an Americana album if I'd put it out! 😀
Thanks so much for your generous comments on my songs!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on Boys Will Be Boys!
Thanks so much for your notes and listening to and responding to my stuff so positively. I love your sound!
PS plummeted into that moment was exactly how I felt when I wrote it. So thank you.
Thank you for your fantastic comment. Much appreciated!
Thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated.
Still thinking about “Birds” the morning after I heard it. Beautiful song, I think the power is the mysterious lyric.
Thanks for your comment on my blues song. I use a low G uke to get a bit more guitar-like sound.
Hi, friend.. I really appreciated your comment on 'Cancel me'.
Since I'm all the privilege things, I always approach subjects like these with trepidation - it's a Pandora's Box of a topic at the best of times, and those who understand the nuances best tend not to be the ones who've been given a voice and platform out of happenstance.
So, knowing that that piece, haphazard as it is, wasn't a garbage fire of ignorance is more reassuring than any comment on the wording itself could have been. So thank you.
Thx. Ja, sometimes HH‘s do rock vey well. ˋ].
i got Married up the valley in Upper Hutt
Plenty of mould. I lived in broadmeadows, didnt come out of the clouds and see daylight often.
Thanks for your commet on my song 😀
thank you for your comment on Midnight on the Harbor. It made my day. I'll need to give your songs a listen.
Thanks for the listen and your kind comments regarding Leaving Normal.
Thank you for your nice comment.
Thanks for listening to my parody, and the kind words about it. High praise for a fandom song to make sense to someone outside the know!
Thanks for listening. I posted the same song twice ??? Can't remember how to delete one. So sorry for the flash.
thanks for your lovely comment on my song. Hope you are your doggy are having a good one 😀
thanks for your kind words once again!!!
Thank you for your comment, much appreciated.
Thank you for the positive feedback on my song "Brandon". On my way to listen to yours...
Thank you so much for your kind words. Hopefully we will come up with another one soon!
Thanks for your very kind comment on my trippy little skirmish piece!
It might be one of my new favorite stories ever 😁 I've already ran off and read a few versions of it!!!
thank you for commenting on my sea shanty, I replied there and had no idea when i tagged you and others that it wasn't seen - still getting the hang of things...
Wow!!! You are here!!! Sweeeeet!!!!!!!!!
