Milwaukee US   Feb 2016


Artist Bio

Influences:   Oh, so many! Folk music, filk music, celtic music and a lot more.

I'm a writer of science fiction, fantasy, and songs as well as a musician. I loves cats and chocolate, and have a nice collection of acoustic instruments.

I can also be found as Wyld_Dandelyon on Twitter and DreamWidth, and on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Wyld_Dandelyon

I've decided this year to at least try to post songs with demos instead of just lyrics, though I might post lyrics to Patreon before I have a demo. Or maybe not. But I found in previous FAWMs that people rarely had time to circle back and listen to a demo when they'd already commented on just-the-lyrics, and besides, it's good to have the whole thing properly memorialized.

I don't have lots of skill with recording. I am pretty sure everything I do qualifies as an acoustic-one-take, at least so far.

Update: It's been so great everybody. Wow--32 songs, and a bunch of song fragments besides. And I listened to so many songs too. SO
MUCH MUSIC! Thanks, everybody!!!

    Thanks for the kind words on "As the Sun Goes Down", I only started doing multi track stuff a few years ago out or necessity. I wanted full arrangements to release stuff but didn't have a band or money to afford to pay people so I started teaching myself and still do so. If there's something I want I google and watch videos on how to get he sound I'm looking for.

    ah! I think that would be a great idea! just adding more percussion to that. and just on anything that happens to be "handy" as well 🀣 One long superskirmish this last 50/90 I just used the same 4chord progression and rhythm for about 5 or 6 in a row. I've yet to mash them altogether, but a few of them will end up going together pretty nicely. It worked well for me since I usually only end up writing a few lines at a time.

    Hi! Thank you for the note on my wall. I do have a few songs to post, though no demos yet. I'm looking forward to catching up on listening to what everyone's been up to. Looks like you've been very prolific. πŸ˜€

    I wrote a song to thank you for the inspiration you provided so many during FAWM. It’s my 15th song, called DragonFae.

    @wylddandelyon thank you so much for the appreciation and kind comment on 'The Alien'. Its a fun episode is to narrate now πŸ˜€

  • @calicocat 1 week

    Thank you for your reassuring comments about β€œGlorious is the Gift”! In the book the two musician characters are improvising on the song, and I may try to add harmonies to it later. Cantor for Pearls, which I put up a few days earlier, is also about that book, if you are interested.

  • @calicocat 1 week

    Thank you for your kind words about "Rose Valland" And I've been looking at your Dragonfae prompts, one of which, in a very general way, gave me the idea for "Come Away" so thank you for inspiration also!

  • @hummingbear  1 week

    I liked your comment about guitar frets. As a matter of fact, it struck a chord with me. 😁

  • @hummingbear  1 week

    Thanks for stopping by for some Fret Stew and sharing your Fret Tea with me. There's no regretting the time spent fretting. OK, that's a terrible lie, but there's no regret in FAWMing!

  • @rwhosings  1 week

    Thanks for the comments and listens! I loved working with the Dragonfae Oracle, so I'm glad you enjoyed the song that came out of it.

    Thanks for your comment on Allies Fall Easiest. I have politics fatigue, too, but it just makes me angrier and more wordy on the subject..

  • @berni1954  2 weeks

    Glad you liked my "Running out of Time" - Yes, inertia is normally our number one enemy. Number two being the mistaken belief that we are immortal and have all the time in the world...
