Artist Bio

Influences:   So many its hard to choose: Maybe today I'll say Miles Davis, Steve Reich, Annie Lennox, Prince, Laurie Anderson, Grace Jones, Nina Symone,

That's wierd - I'm just coming back its March.. and Ive realised for the whole time my bandcamp AND soundcloud were wrong. Sorry about that.. !!

I'm having an identity crisis: I WAS HMH (honeymoonhill) and then also "tunecat" and now I'm not sure who I am!! Or if I should generate another identity entirely, or be one for lyrics one for music, or shift depending on the music. As a result of this internal stuff, haven't published most of the stuff of the last couple of years but it's sitting around uploaded to bandcamp . Say hello if you recognise this- and /or if you have anything to say to encourage me/shift me out of eternal procrastophoria!

For anyone new let me say that FAWM is great. I owe a lot to FAWM and FAWMers. Thanks so much. I was somebody who liked the idea of writing songs, and it took this to kick me into touch, get me actually writing and listening and writing and stuff. As a result I went on a really fun, and fruitful journey.

Looking forward to 2021's FAWM.

A bit of historical bio: I started out in classical music - I played French Horn and even went to music college. Horn was my life from about 8 to 18. It seem a long time ago now, but it was pretty formative: I mean I was one of those kids who could recognise a piece by Hindemith but who'd never heard of The Rolling Stones. No really!

But aged around 18 I discovered jazz, played in a big band and then I was completely obsessed for several years by trying to play and catch up with the musical prowess I heard and wanted to emulate. I was also always drawn to writing - I just never had done it, and was overly critical, and thinking like an instrumentalist, and not a creative. I will repeat FAWM and everything that it represents is really a saving grace. I was down a dark hole of critiquing everything, before I'd had a chance to develop, experiment, play, improve, and "go through the fire"...
These days, I don't feel like I fit into any particular category. I like lots of different genres of music, but in the last few years, I've had the most FUN, making music that in some ways harks back to an experience of music that I must have imbibed almost unknowingly, from college days. I've found myself drawn to the quirky, the experimental, and less typical songwriting, and more .. well you know!! I've loved using different ways to make music and playing around. I got really into cutting samples up for a while. Then when I revisited that, I got into stretching them around etc. (using Melodyne - I did about four albums of just this - link to the first one is here: https://honeymoonhill.bandcamp.com/album/sonic-sketches-1) A couple of years ago, I got really into writing spoken/word with music. So in effect the music was taking a back seat.
I end to do something different each year. I love to collaborate. Don't take any notice of the links.. as I'm not really online at the moment.. I will attempt to change this in 2021 !
I spent the past few years writing on apps - because I LOVED them, and mostly focussing on spoken word over the top because, actually I LOVED that too.. more free flowing wierdness... Not sure what I'll be doing this year.
Before: used and explored (and probably downloaded thanks to recommendations here) - ThumbJam, Loopy (still not an expert in any shape or form on these excellent programmes) BeatWave - after long period of trying discovered that this programme can actually produce some cool results, oh and I absolutely loved Figure. I frequently smattered these tracks with dashes of.. oh well, doesn't matter now. I do also write un-wierd music and songs. In fact started doing a lot of kids stuff recently: parodies, ditties: I can rhyme, and I can sound concordant! Plus, I may need to make a living soon.

In 2021 as well as the above, I want to do less visual processing and more just getting on with it.
I think.

I'm using a new laptop - and a few things I used to do, don't work on new software, etc. plus I couldn't get the laptopDAW even working till this week - as a result I've ended up posting loads of videos which were not conceived as videos. It's probably been a really happy accident, as its made me consider a few important things.. and has freed up a lot of time ...

    Very interesting! you're on a good way with your videos! I dont think you need lots of gear for performing live. Its more about practise and enjoying it. I've performed about a dozen times in the past but it just didn't feel right for me. So I focused on songwriting and post-recording. I even stopped practising instruments! I'm so glad that there are so many different ways of enjoying and making music. You will find your way - or maybe you already have πŸ˜€

  • @nadine 7 weeks

    You're welcome! No worries, I am curious too. When I entered Zoom I knew about half the people.

    I'm sorry that I can't perform the music I write. I want it so badly! For some reason I'm a way better composer, writer and producer than instrumentalist. I usually write full band arrangements without being able to play most instruments. I just know a bit of piano but my skills are not good enough for a playthrough. During FAWM I focus on songwriting and finding collabs, post-FAWM is waiting for recordings, mixing and mastering. I'll probably finish my work in autumn when all people are far gone and moved on xD

    Do you finish all these songs post FAWM? Or do you enjoy the process of writing?

  • @nadine 7 weeks

    Thanks a lot for your comments on "Embrace the storm" and "Sky Scraper".

    Seems like "Embrace the storm" just found its title 😁 The lyrics have some feel of epic fantasy and nature, but it is still uncertain if and when we gonna record vocals. The guitars will be recorded after FAWM closes. So if you want to have a major update on this project, this will only happen at SoundCloud (spring or summer) or Bandcamp (when all songs were recorded with real instruments - maybe autumn?!).

    That lyricloud skirmish was a fun experience. I think I will try it once again if someone hosts it next FAWM. Still unsure if I should produce "Sky Scraper", because I am already maxed out with mixing and producing my β™₯-songs!

    Gosh, you did so many songs this FAWM! Any recommendations where I should start?!

  • @shelleroo1  Mar 12

    Thanks so much, @tunecat, for your awesome comments! I'm so glad you liked them. I'll make sure to sit down tomorrow and spend some time on your stuff. Let me know if there are any in particular you'd like me to check out!

  • @wylddandelyon Mar 11

    Thanks for stopping by and listening to An Onomatopoeia for Life. I appreciate your comments. I figure little kids won't get the drinking double entendre, lol. The instrument I'm playing there is an autoharp.

  • @shelleroo1  Mar 10

    Hey @tunecat! Interested in a #tit4tat?

  • @wolfkier Mar 8

    No feedback is unwelcome. All ears hear all things. Someone will always write something that leads to an improvement, if only incremental. Let's do this. I have 2 of yours how many do you have of mine? Who's next?
    If you want to point me at specific songs, leave me the numbers and I'll listen to them in one sitting. I like to immerse myself in a new artist. You can reciprocate at your leisure, of course. Whenever youre ready. πŸ˜€

  • @kathym  Mar 8

    I'm still trying to catch up on all of the thank you's that I owe people for stopping by my song pages and I am very touched by thoughts that you have shared on my song "Tumbling". I will be developing this song further and will keep your input handy so I can make sure it's the best I can make it. The input that I receive from other songwriters is always taken to heart and I know that often times it helps make my songs stronger. Thank you so much for your time and support. <3

  • @kathym  Mar 8

    I'm still catching up on sending thank you notes for your having stopped by my song "When it Snows". I am so touched by the support and comments this song has gotten. I played this at a zoom open mic even though it's not quite polished and it was well received. I will be back in touch if I get the demo up in case anyone is around to listen. Your time and support mean so much to me and I really appreciate your having taken time for me.

  • @wolfkier Mar 7

    You still playing #tit4tat with me? I got 2 of yours. Who's next? me or you?

  • @jwhanberry  Mar 5

    Liz,
    I'm glad you liked my tune. I've listened a few times. Feel free to post it as a collab. I would mix it a bit differently. I'd pull the vocal down a bit so it lays in the track better. Possible some compression, a little brightening and just a touch of delay or reverb. I couldn't quite get all the lyric and I couldn't access it through songcraft but what I heard sounds fine. I'll see it when you post it.

  • @wolfkier Mar 5

    Thanks for your question.
    I suck at explanations/rules πŸ˜€
    the idea is to exchange with individuals, as many times as you agree. You may or may not connect with everybody and you may not hear everything they have.
    I only have 7 to trade, so that's my limit, each partner might go 7 or however many they agree to on first contact.
    It really is just a bunch of people who promise to return your visit/s.
    I hope that's clearer. Please, please ask more if this isn't clear.

  • @kathym  Mar 5

    Thank you for stopping by to comment on my song "Miracles" and your other feedback on my songs. You have done well with 62 songs!!!

    re: Dissolution. If you want to do words and melody, have at it. It'll have to be after the deadline 'cause I'm too busy today to think about it. Have some fun.

  • @gb9  Feb 28

    @tunecat Thank you πŸ˜€

  • @jaegerin  Feb 28

    Thanks for listening to β€˜I’ve Lost My Pterodactyl’. Sure, you can send it to them and credit Jane Eggers. Have set the demo to downloadable.

  • @zecoop  Feb 28

    Wow! Look at your amazing FAWM! Congrats on the huge win. I will be catching up in March. Thanks for your wonderful comment and so cool that your family was near my family (from long ago). Mary really stunned me with that one. And trombones... Sadly, the party was the only place it came out this year. I used to be good but lost most of the skill. I played them last year on a fun song. I should play it more but it is hard figuring out the parts by ear.

    Bass synth, rather than bass. I was too lazy to walk all the way back downstairs to grab a bass. πŸ˜‰

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 28

    Thank you for your lovely feedback on 'Sail Away'. We really appreciate it. 😊

  • @gb9  Feb 28

    @tunecat thank you so much for the offer of help.
    Please, every bit of information and knowledge would help at this point because I don't know much about music or melodies. I intend to correct my ignorance, so any guidance from you is very welcome.
    Thank you πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  • @gb9  Feb 28

    @tunecat It's late afternoon here, most of my reads are coming of skirmishes, my other efforts.... well not so much.

    But it has been a delightful experience nonetheless. Maddening, exhilarating, and thrilling enough for me to sign up for 50/90 😁

  • @berni1954  Feb 28

    Sorry, my comment read that way. I was not trying to be mean, at all. I was trying to convey the broad depth of interpretations that the song evokes. Organized chaos is a compliment in my book 😁

  • @gb9  Feb 28

    @tunecat A Very Delightful Sunday to you πŸ€— and thank you for your kind comment on 'Dancing Feet'

  • @dragondreams  Feb 28

    So glad you enjoyed the insanity that was the house party.
    It started in 2012 during 5090 but was quite different. It was just one continuous jam with multiple soloists.
    http://www.dragondreams.org.uk/5090/voicesinmyhead.mp3
    In 2019 we tried to something like the Bonzo's Intro and Outro, but it became an open mic houseparty:
    http://www.dragondreams.org.uk/FAWM2019/DraconemSomnis_OpenMicNight...

    This year ended up more like a gang show. πŸ˜‚

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 27

    Wish I'd of had it for one of my 10x10 things I did on one of @kahlo2013's lyrics I just sniffed some pepper instead and had to edit out the 10 that came after the first one 🀣 I looked through freesounds library, but they didn't have any good sneezes that's a good one.

  • @auditasum  Feb 27

    Good catch. I changed it in the body of the first post.

  • @gb9  Feb 27

    @tunecat thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comment on 'Paused' it's scary how one blanks out..... A veritable nightmare..

  • @berni1954  Feb 27

    Glad you liked my "Hot Dogs for Hobbits".

    You said: "Sounds like you're from round here" - "Here" in this case being???

  • @mandolinda  Feb 27

    Thanks for listening to my song about leaving home, and the nice comments.

  • @ianuarius  Feb 27

    Yes! So stream of consciousness. I've tried that before, but my lack of English fluidity never really allowed for anything even remotely useful. So this one was fun. Thanks for listening!

  • @gb9  Feb 27

    Top of the day to you!! πŸ˜€

  • @stephenwordsmith  Feb 27

    It's probably more personification than metaphor, I suppose. I suspect you've interpreted it in the spirit intended from your comment. You are welcome to try it if you have the time and energy; no worries at all if not.

  • @lizbrinker  Feb 25

    @tunecat , about The Twelve Bar Blues, @richaaaay sent me his guitar part with video over it and I dumped it into Acapella app for iPhone and sang my part into my phone's earbuds. Thanks so much for listening to it!

  • @lizbrinker  Feb 25

    Hi, @tunecat ! Thanks for chedking out Bliss, Nothing But Bliss. It is an honest one, that's for sure. I am looking at how prolific you are! Woweee!

  • @gb9  Feb 25

    @tunecat Hello!! πŸ˜€ Wishing you a great evening!

    Have been busy pulling my hair than writing, hit a major block and since then the pile of unfinished songs has phenomenally increased, something feels lacking in them, thankfully yesterday's skirmish fixed it, writing better now.

  • @kajati Feb 23

    Thanks for your comments, what do you mean 50 songs!!! how can I even get through those in one sitting, it'll take me a couple of days to say the least. you genius you!!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 23

    Cool! I'll get me busking hat ironed. πŸ˜‰

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 23

    Thanks for all of your nice comments. There is someone else who was interested in the waltz and she does a phenomenal job so maybe she will do it!

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 22

    Thanks for your kind words @tunecat . The lyrics are basically the same story as in JJ Cales 13 Days but put in a Swedish context.
    Peace <3

  • @mhorning Feb 22

    Thanks for the comment on Cherry Tree Inn. The backdrop is actually a blue blanket pinned to the wall behind me so that I can have a (literal) blue-screen for Zoom Meetings. But once I set it up, I realized it was a good location to record.

  • @ustaknow Feb 22

    I'm glad I stripped the youtube video audio, - only because my Internet can be dodgy. It's still loading the project πŸ˜€ hahhh. Bandlab's like that too. It may not be as good as soundtrap looks for a collab interface. That's very nice!

    I'm afraid with all I have running on my PC, I'm stuck with file-drops and like that.

    - So, specifically that link dropped me at a "sign-in" page. If not you - πŸ˜€ hahh, I would not have. So, for what I can see in this, let folks know they will need to sign up and it could take a while for the page to load.

    Once in, - I presume, that performance element may be consistent to be aware of. However, it does solve the problem of proving a DAW for all, and not sequence emailing files. Heck, experienced folks may not handle that well either (be they musical and not children too, so to speak πŸ˜€ hahhh!)

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 21

    In F. Verse progression F Am Bb C

  • @ustaknow Feb 21

    Yes, there are a number of great online music generators and group-DAW places.

    I can try the link and see if it works for me.

    I've tried a few, for others who wanted to try. For example the BandLab one - while some love it, others find the limitations a problem. However, context, like with children, you just have to try it with them.

    - I just stripped the audio from your video and have the mp3 of it; and will play with it, thank you! πŸ˜€ I'll check for quality, seems to be same as if played from video (using headphones now).

    I love things like this to jam to; one never knows how any of it may turn out! πŸ˜€ hahhh.

    - Yes, I just checked the mp3 stripped out audio, to video you have, and sounds identical.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 21

    Aww. Thank you! πŸ˜€
    Wow! Lookit you go! I have some catching up to do. πŸ˜€

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 20

    Hey @tunecat I've just this minute emailed you those harp loops you asked for. They were fun to do, can't wait to hear what use you make of them!

  • @nightwing521  Feb 20

    A "poke", in the sense I used in "Winning Streak" is a bag or sack. Think of "a pig in a poke".
    In the Old West (and probably through much of American history???), it was used as a wallet for coin, and even raw ore in a mining town.

  • @gb9  Feb 20

    @tunecat thank you for the appreciation and kind comments on 'Maldivdes' it's been an island dream for a long time... I like your wonderful thoughts on your destination.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 20

    Hey! So it's the harp in my profile pic here (I do have a full size one too, but it hasn't made an appearance this fawm)... the sound you hear is me manually changing lever (from a D# to a D natural...) I'd love to play something for you - let me know!

    Thanks so much for your comment, and sorry I got in there first with the bugs bite song - they were great lyrics weren't they?!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 20

    Oh my @tunecat you really liked that angry 'Comet' lyric of mine lolololol Thank you for the lovely comment, and the wee rant. Gave me a fun early morning smile πŸ˜€ You can always collab on it if you wish, and rant away to your hearts delight !!!!!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 20

    thx for your comments - i think that chord progression is very different and maybe it gives that oldy feel (Gm Cm D7 Gm)

    Hey! Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you, hectic week!

    I knew about the songwriter for It Must Be Love but hadn't put it into the Youtube vid - we have it registered with WATH so any ad revenue goes to the song owners etc, but will make a note to add their name to the vid description πŸ˜€

    Thanks also so much for the invite to collab - I love your lyrics and the idea of Nessa being a siren lol! I can't make any firm promises right now as our time is already pretty stretched, mine especially (full time job, daughter, music releases, songwriting for fawm etc lol) but if I find a gap I'll be sure to have a look and see if there is anythign we can add to it with you! Will let you know of course πŸ˜€ Thanks so much for taking the time to come and see what we do, it's appreciated πŸ˜€ x

  • @gb9  Feb 19

    @tunecat Thank you so much for your kind words on 'Grieve'. Yes, you got it right, it was for my brother, I still miss him everyday, I still count the days... Some people are so special that you lose a part of yourself with their loss, price of knowing beautiful souls, I guess.

    Sorry for your loss too, I know if this poem resonates, it hurts. Heal well, get stronger. β™₯β™₯

  • @gb9  Feb 18

    Thank you so much for the appreciation and kind comment on 'Ready, Steady, Go' πŸ˜€ I don't have a good sense of rhythm or music, I'm as off-beat as no one can be, so I avoid vocals everywhere!!!

  • @pifie Feb 18

    Link me one song of yours and I'll try to add bass and harmony to it! (no promises tho, I've been super busy)

  • @gb9  Feb 18

    Thank you πŸ˜€

  • @gb9  Feb 18

    @tunecat Thank you so much, truly.

    The fact that you even cared to help me out with your suggestions and made them so clear..... I really don't have words.... Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

    I'll change the song tags, I only write poems/ songs. I don't have musical knowledge so I don't have a tune or melody in mind when I write, I just think of an emotion and get going. Which is why I try to stay within the boxes of set parameters, for songs, stuff like line lengths, rhyming lines etc create movement in lyrics at achieve prosody. [prosody aside from the google bit, also makes a piece sound complete and not jarring, basically eliminates dissonance, if the line numbers, line lengths are structured well the movement of the song is perfect.]

    I'm really grateful for your suggestions. Thank you very much πŸ˜€

    P.S. The pet in 'Shiver me timbers' is just an image for the line "Cara [my pet] dressed as a rock star" which was her Halloween get up πŸ˜€

  • @gb9  Feb 18

    Your work on 'Don't Put It Off' is really interesting. I has got me thinking, I've been refining my work and trimming and editing some stuff, but your line length variance, and the entire thing fit well. It had prosody. So I'll go over my work again.. πŸ˜€

  • @waitingforwinry Feb 17

    Hey and Thanks for your comment on "Half finished" πŸ˜€ - I doubt procrastination is a problem for you with so many songs completed already! wowzers!

  • @gb9  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comment πŸ˜€

  • @franniezest  Feb 17

    Thanks for your comments- It never occurred to me to think of those two songs as kid songs ! Maybe thinking of them like that will help me come up with the rest of the lyrics !
    Oh - and Congrats on exceeding 14!

    Hey tunecat! Leaving this message in FB and here because I don't know which you're gonna read first.

    I don't know if it's my OS/browser combo of choice or the fact I haven't done songcraft before, but I had difficulty opening it and I still cannot find the demo to listen to: can you send me a the demo via email at mistermannmusic@gmail.com so I can have a listen?

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 13

    Oh, I’d really love that if you find the time!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 13

    ooo where you at??? Matlock???

  • @medievil Feb 13

    Thank you for your kind words. πŸ˜€

  • @mistermann  Feb 13

    Sure! I’d fancy another collab if you have something else that could use it. Send something my way when you’re ready.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 13

    I can email it to if you fancy it

    Most likely that that is how things like Beowulf came to be - through a tradition of poets and storytellers recreating and embellishing stories on the fly as a means of transmitting news, entertaining and conducting religious ceremony, these days I guess it’s stuff like grime that fulfils a similar societal role..

    Hahah, all good I just have to defend myself I am surrounded by people with electric twangers and loads of fancy music gear. And music degrees.

  • @hornesgiftshop  Feb 9

    Thanks for your kind comments Cat. Much appreciated. Hope you'll be able to get back to Whitby sometime soon. If they're still doing Tuesday night singing in the Elsinore...

    Unusual instruments!? I am a Piper of 31 years, I strongly maintain that all OTHER instruments are unusual! LOL!!! πŸ˜‚

    Congrats on your FAWM win!

  • @improvyssey  Feb 9

    Thanks for your comment! A 40-minute improv is daunting, but what an interesting project. I've been improvising since I was a kid, which is probably the only reason I sound "polished."

  • @chrismyth02 Feb 8

    Great! I’m excited to hear it!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 8

    Blimey! You've been busy while my back was turned! πŸ˜€
    I've got some listening to do!

    And thank you so much for your note about my YouTube track. πŸ˜€

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Feb 8

    Thank you πŸ˜€ And wow...you’ve been busy!

  • @wacha  Feb 8

    Thank you for your very kind words on "Mythical".

    Re Silver Linings: It says that the video is 'private' and unavailable.

  • @ajna1960  Feb 8

    I'm afraid that videos 1 and 3 won't play for me 😞 But I could play #2 and it looked fine to me, apart from I couldn't hear what you were saying very well as the piano kinda drowned it a little. I do like the direction you are taking it !

  • @crutherford  Feb 8

    Thank you for your lovely comment on I Don't Like Snow. It made me smile. πŸ˜€

  • @ajna1960  Feb 8

    I have made you collab on Silver Linings πŸ˜€ Thank you for asking. Enjoy saying that line lol

  • @apolez3 Feb 8

    Thanks for the comment on Blow my mind, Baby... Yes, I also would like to hear a demo

  • @chrismyth02 Feb 8

    Thanks for the positive comment on Death's Head! I have some rough draft lyrics for our collab - but I don't see your email in the profile?

  • @chrismyth02 Feb 7

    Lyrics first works just fine! I will write up something and send it to you soon!

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 7

    Thanks! So appreciate nice comments from you!

  • @chrismyth02 Feb 7

    Truly pleased to be matched with you in the random collab! I love your piano arrangements. Let me know how you'd like to collaborate - my email is in my profile if you'd like to reach out that way!

  • @gbg2016  Feb 7

    Can you send me an audio file, or the video? I am heading into the work week and have some other things that will keep me away from music, but if I listen in the car I can get some ideas and be in touch next weekend. (email is graybethgray@gmail.com)

  • @berni1954  Feb 7

    Thanks for spreading the word about me to your banjo playing friend!
