Influences: Rock, Sabbath, AC/DC etc. Jazz. Blues. Currently playing bass in a Covers band. Well I was until all the gigs got cancelled.
I play bass & guitar, use a drum machine (for drums) and have recently bought a keyboard for some extra layers. I record old(ish) school using a hard disk recorder.
This is my third FAWM and really looking forward to it. Gonna try and join in as many challenges and skirmishes as I can.
I am really keen to hear from lyricists and singers who would like to collaborate.
If I have any "just lyrics” posted and you want to use them then please do, no need to ask for permission. Just add me as a collaborator.
PNs - not bothered, but if I get yours wrong just politely let me know.
All in all, I hope the music flows like a good wine. Enjoy

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. I wonder if they ever do recall that encounter. I hope they do it with love and not as pity. <3
Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to my songs and the lovely comments you’ve made. I appreciate it!
Thank you SO much for your great comments on "If I Could Live at the Zoo". I plan on having some fun with this song and will be taking all comments to heart as I go back and work on it. Your time and support are truly appreciated! If I can get this put up before they take down the site for hiatus, I'll let you know. All the best!
Thanks for the comments on my neutrino song!
Thank you for your comment on my Missing You song. It was much appreciated. Just for interest, you mentioned that the piano was restrained and that I held back. You are so right. I was reading the lyrics with one hand and played the piano with the right hand only - that's why it sounded the way it did. A happy accident, glad that you liked it.
Thanks for your comments. I appreciate it.
Thanks very much for your lovely comment on “Tumble and Fall”!
But I should say, my Uncle Bill was factual. I was talking to my cousin last summer, and mentioned the event to him. And almost 60 years after the event, the two of us came up with a reason for that fight, and the fallout to our families for years.
Thanks fro you kind words on 'Velvet Sword', much appreciated!
Thank you so much on commenting my Cohen song! Like your description of smiling things could have been worse. Maybe it's that feeling I had yesterday evening ...
Thank you so much for your appreciation of 'Forever'. Glad to know it connected on some level 😀
Glad you liked "The Strangers". Will listen to some more of your stuff later. It's bedtime here in Catalunya. Bona nit!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on our first go at a skirmish 😀
RE: Sleigh - Hey Zeekle! thx so much for taking the time to listen and leave a comment on my track! I appreciate you! 😀
Thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Aces', I will revisit it and clean it up. Thank you for your kindness. 😀
Thank you so much for your feedback on "Hallo Angst (Hello Fear) - and sorry for answering so late. Had lots of work and some technical problems, too ...
If only they new! Mushy is not really me! But hey i would be a crazy man if all my lyrics were any refection on me!
Wow! Lookit all those songs! You've been busy!
I dropped by to say a huge thank you for listening to my bass slap ego trip. 😉 Your comments are very kind. 😀
Thank you for the kind words
oh wow that 's so cool it had a cinematic feel to you!! sometimes it's hard to know if the listener 'sees' things unfold. Yes exactly...maye we all have one 'love lost'...
Thanks for the lovely comment on my track
Absolutely she may have been looking for love and such-- but as writer I didn't feel like digging into her side of the story this time around. 😀
Thank you for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Maldives'. They have this beautiful bio-luminescent plankton on some islands, that glows in the dark, so at night it seems like stars are washing up your feet... 😀
I am just catching up on comments and new songs from folx after being away for a week and am very overwhelmed by everyone's productivity.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my songs, I appreciate the listen. Your prolific catalogue here didn't lend itself to a full listen, but you definitely have a cool, Lou Reed kind of vibe that I'm all about.
Thanks for your comment !! Glad you pictured what I was trying to experiment 😀
Glad you liked the cowbell, it just seemed to fit somehow, and only in that passage. Thanks for noticing the details, you have a good ear.
Thanks for the kind words on As the House Burns Down. I love what Sonya did with it!
I've been using a DAW for less than a year. I still just basically treat it as a recorder 🤣 The options can be overwhelming and lead to just getting nothing done. It's too easy to just say screw it and redo some little part you don't like or try to fix it after the fact. I have to turn that off or I'd never get anything done. I miss my old Tascams and reel to reels hahaha. Easily adding samples to things has been the only plus side for me.
I’m glad you enjoyed my song. I’m not sure the LA tourism board would agree 🌴
thank you for your kind words on 'the unicorn song' i've written several unicorn songs over the years-they are such interesting creatures.
I appreciate that! A buncha people I record have requested autotune. I’m trying to learn it but ya it’s weird. Lol thanks for listening!
Thanks very much for the generous comment on “Sandcastles”!
Thanks for your kind comments on my last two songs! Really appreciated!
Holy crumb, Jason! You've so many songs! I am so behind in everything including my listening. But I'll take a listen soon.
Thank you for the kind and helpful feedback on "As the Sun Goes Down", I did a little editing to fix the issue with the guitar solos.
Hey, I just sent you a link to some lyrics I wrote for our collaboration.
Thank you for the comment! The link is working now 😁
Oh wow Jason look at all these songs! You have been productive! Bravo!
Zeekle man - I can not wait to be singing these songs live and road test them!! Thanks for your comments.
Gywn's version is a dance one, so I'd love to hear your blues. 😀
Thanks and yes Gwyn is doing it. But, if you would like to, you can as well. I've done this several times.
That is a huge compliment, I'd LOVE to work with you. I'm always up for a collaboration!
For $100, you get the same thing, but sung through a trumpet. 😝
Thanks for the comment on my song! I appreciate the feedback!
Thanks for your comments on my songs. Cheers!
Wow lots of songs, awesome! Thanks for the feedback on Scavenger Hunt, much appreciated!! I think I am up to 9, 6 posted so far, have a wonderful FAWM!!
Cheers for your nice comment on "Hong Kong Pfui".
Thanks for the lovely feedback 😊
Thanks for the comment on my skirmish song!
That's all I need! You, encouraging Amanda! 😁
If only there were such a photo to show... the power of songwriting!
Sending you some lyrics! Looking forward to the collaboration - let me know if you receive.
Thanks for your kind words on my song Cross the Line. It's much appreciated!
All I have to do is see the title “Easy to Lie” and it gets stuck in my head all over again - lol! Thanks for listening.
Thanks for taking a listen to my song about my Qanon pal lol. I appreciate it so much. Gosh, in the UK too? Oh my...
Mental? Me? ..well..maybe just 90%
Thanks for listening! and thanks for your kind words.
Thank you for your sweet comment on Lilah Danielle <3 Much appreciated!
We got paired up for a collab in the randomcollab thread. Both of us opted for either lyrics or music, so we'll need to sort that out. I would also prefer to get the first week behind me before jumping into a collab since I'm not used to working this fast.
Thanks for your comment on my song "Air Is Free". I came here to return the favor, but nothing yet. Get cracking!!
That's really kind of you, thank you. 😀
JMJ was the synth music of my youth, so I guess it's a subconscious thing whenever I sit with a keyboard. 😉
Hey Jason! Thanks for the note. Nice to see you here, too! Let’s see where the muses take us this year! Cheers!
Third times a charm. 😀
Welcome back to the funhouse.
Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
