Artist Bio

Influences:   Jeff Bridges. Other FAWM musicians. Crap art. Mad poets.

In 2018, I did FAWM Squared, Fourteen 14-track improvised albums. When I completed my 14th, I celebrated with a 15th. Then to help the community hit a song-count milestone, I did two more albums on the last day.

While I have my eye on attempting a 50/90 Squared, I don't think that it will be in 2019.

My 20th release of 2018 was "Mixed Scifi Songs," which used an experimental "ambient acapella" genre. I might explore that more in 2019.

Christmas Day of 2018, I released three more albums. 23 is a nice prime number, though one is an EP and another is a three-sided single.

New Year's Eve, someone on Slack convinced me to release an album, so I released the folk acapella album "Strange New World."

My birthday is in early January, and I didn't want too many days to elapse without another album, so I released my second "ambient acapella" album, and my first album of the year, "The Cusp" -- which was based upon a FAWM 2018 skirmish.

Unfortunately, my only release in 2019 is a 9 track 30 minute EP, and I hate EPs.

    Hey, thanks for your comment πŸ˜‰
    For the last two years, my goal was to do the 14 tracks in one day the 1st of February, but this year I couldn't (job and working on a videogame).
    So I've rushed it a bit later 😝

    Thanks for giving a listen to my track, "L’chaim" and for the kind words. I'm behind on socializing, but I look forward to checking out your tracks.

    Yaaaay, I'm glad to see I'm not alone haha. Honestly, even just commenting and giving critiques is participating I would say. I'm sure everyone appreciated it nonetheless! Can't wait to see what you come up with this year though 😁

    Hello! So great that you're here again! And I see from your Bandcamp (as well as your discussion in your Bio) that I have a lot to catch up on.
    Your surreal songs are always a blast - looking forward to more of them this year!
