This will be my 6th FAWM, I mainly write indie/psych/folk rock tunes, but not afraid to dive into more electronic and experimental music for variation.
I'm a bit busy with finishing my second album these days, but hope to find some time and inspiration to write at least a couple of new tunes and do some collabs.
I sing and play guitar, bass, keyboards, omnichord, theremin, autoharps, zither, melodica, clarinet, musical saw, noisy gadgets and then program/fake the things I can't play.
I've released an album and EP with material from earlier FAWM's and 50/90's, and working on my second full length album set for a summer/fall 2021 release.

Hi, I just about managed to hit my 14, although not all my tracks have demos and there were a couple of weird tracks thrown in. Let me know if you'd like to collab again some time.
Thanks so much for your comment and sorry were really busy and slow to respond. Yes we did use the space echo on the vocals too 😊
Your Moms sibling is a landmine
LJ & me
Care to make any corrections or should I roll with that?
Took me a minute but I found the 10 secs, thanks
Hi, not to nag but wondering if you are able to make progress on the anything goes EC?
Yeah, no worries and certainly no pressure! If I do come up with anything new that makes me think of you straight out, I will shoot it over. 😀
(let me know if you do have any interest and I'll send you the proper files)
If you have any interest in trying for something on Voyager (vocally or musically), you are more than welcome! (title/topic can change to whatever) I think you are right about the 6/8, 8/8 although I think there's a 2/4 or 4/8 or something in there every once in a while. This happens a lot with me - I don't have any idea what I am doing, but just play what the song tells me. 😀
Thanks for the listens... I am so far behind but starting to catch up. Work has been insane, but I loved digging into your music. And for Polar Bear, the, ahem, jazz organ at the end is my favorite too. I struggled with the desire to put it in earlier, throughout the song. I may still do that.
Strange that you say that, as it occurred to me this morning that I hadn’t gotten notifications about your songs!! Why? Anyway, it was nice to start off my day with your music.
Awesome! Looking forward to it. Send me your whole song as I am the stitcher and the 10 seconds to the next person in the chain.
Hi here is 10 or so seconds for the Anything Goes EC #3 YOU are up!
When you are done please email me your full minute or so song as I will stitch and send your 10 sec to the next person in line!
Nice call, picking up my Andrew Bird influence. I saw him live once, in Reno, and it was an unforgettable show. Around the time of the Noble Beast album, I think.
Thanks, it's good to be back! I see you also listen to Protomartyr, they're from my area. Happy FAWM!
Thanks for the comments on Retrospective. Appreciated!!
Mt. Mélodie! Hey, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my lyrics-only entry. I really appreciate it. Wanted to let you know I’ve got music up for it so if you have time to listen come on by my page. thanks again.
Welcome back! Open for another collab if that’s of interest to you
Thank you for the nice comments on one of my favorite songs! I appreciate the feedback!
Hi and txh for comments on "Fallen Angel" It is basically software synths on it. So I need a deep male voice on it to do it even better for sure. Looking forward to youre stuff.
Hi, I've got some lyrics for you! I gave some of your other stuff a listen, very good. The songs I'm doing are all based around parts of London and are quite dark but I've created a song called 'Kite HIll' which is about Parliament Hill that overlooks London. I'm still learning how FAWM works so how do I get them to you?
Hi, this is my first Fawm - I'm looking forward to our collab!
Thanks! Looking forward to hearing your album too!
Hey! Looking forward to heading some new Mt. Melodie too. Have a good fawm!
Thanks for the post on my soundboard and the Watch. I dig your music, and have started following you on soundcloud. Can’t wait to start my fist FAWM! The community has been awesome so far.
Thanks! You too x
Wow, I'm listening to Are We There Yet? There's some pretty amazing stuff there. You definitely hit a sweet spot for me. Kudos!
Hey man! Glad to see ya again 😀 I always love hearing your stuff during FAWM! I wasn’t here for last year, but I’m looking forward to hearing what ya do this year (and looking forward to some fuzzy guitars from ya!)
Hey there. Welcome back and so glad you liked the single. Can’t wait to hear your stuff.
I think it would be more than fun matey. Lets see what unfolds. Bring it all on i say
Welcome back, I look forward to your music (and your insights!)
I trust you have a copy of "The Ladies of Grace and Favour Adieu"? A collection of Suzanna's short stories and the only other thing she's published since "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" to my knowledge.
Have a wonderful FAWM! Excited to hear your stuff as always!
Beautiful to look at, your working area. Have a good time next month and in life overall.
Yes, of course I'm up for a collaboration!
