2020 - Many changes happening in my world right now. I don't even know whats happening with me, never mind my music hahahah so lets see what comes out. I'm still living between London and Barcelona so there will be varying quality in the different recordings depending on where I am. Also - I left my laptop charger at home so it's all about one take guitar and vocal this week haha
2019 - I think I did about 10 songs last year.
2018 - I went well crazy with the first song, put so much energy into it... but it was worth it. It was like a dark electronic heavy beats, big synths kind of thing. I did another 2 or 3 songs, kind of weird heavy beats electronic Bjork style and an ambient one. I had a another 5 or so songs that never came to anything until after FAWM had finished but I'm v happy with them now.
2017 - I was working away home again at this point - but nothing as exciting as Barcelona, it was Newbury (UK). Which was nice enough but I had a terrible house there and the job was challenging. I only wrote one song called "Be Good Cos You're A Good Human Being". It's my only rap song ever and looking back the mix is terrible but I still love it.
2016 - The first (and only so far) proud year that I completed FAWM but the last few songs were pretty terrible... I think I finished off 5 projects from the month in one day. Got some great songs from the rest of the month though that went on to be on my first album which I was lucky to have released on a record label the following year.
2013 - I had just moved down to London to a beautiful apartment but I lived sooo far from work! I managed one song called 'Glow' - it was a love song for my boyfriend who I live with today.
2012 - About 10 songs, recorded on an iPhone 4S in a fourth floor flat in Istanbul, whilst I was having a break from work and just eating kebabs and doing FAWM! I had my birthday there and it was snowing one of the nights - the prayers used to ring out in the street throughout the day - it was so enchanting and different.
Thanks in advance for any comments! I love the love, but I also love the critique too as I always want to be a better producer.
ENJOY YOUR FAWM!!!
Sent a message to you on facebook about a potential last minute collab (I know, I know, I'm a monster) as I thought you might check that more regularly than here, but just in case you don't use facebook any more, I have an instrumental I could send you that needs vocals if you were interested in trying to squeeze that collab in last minute? I realise this is stupidly late in the day so feel free to defer a collab to next FAWM, but if you are interested let me know your email and I'll send it over 😀
Hey! Thanks so much for the great song you created! I am so happy about it! I have sent you an email... 😀
Thanks a lot! I am looking very forward to it! 😀
I would look very, very forward to it! 😀
Yo pal! Looking forward to the magic!
Hope you'll be back this year, I seem to remember promises of a collab from last FAWM, I'm up for it if you are!
