Just what I was looking for...

Recommended Posts

Hello Songstuff community,

My name is Ken. I'm glad to find a community of people passionate about music and songwriting. I have a day job, family, kids, mortgage, etc., but I've always had dreams of writing songs for other people to hear. Only recently, I realized I can write songs other people can hear even though I have a day job, family, kids, mortgage, etc. Whether they are good or not, I'll let you all decide. I am my own worst critic but I am also not very objective.


Although I've always followed and admired songwriters, I haven't written many songs myself...call it a 30 year writer's block. Over a couple months this year, I got out of my inertia and tried to write a song a week. I didn't quite get a song a week but I have about 10 songs now and I'd love some feedback. I'll post them gradually, I want to respect the guidelines and offer feedback of my own. The songs are in a rough demo state because I don't have the musical and production talent (and patience) to make them radio quality...so if there's any interest, I'd be interested in collaborating (production, singers) to polish them up. My influences are all over the place and range from late 60s/70s era rock and RnB (Bowie, Beatles, Boston, EW&F); 80s new wave and alternative (Smiths, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran), heavy metal (Scorpions, Van Halen) ; 90s alternative rock (Nirvana, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Toad the Wet Sprocket); and current modern rock (Foo Fighters, X Ambassadors, Young the Giant, Panic!), indie, pop, etc.


I'm not strong in production, but I love to geek out with gear and software. I don't have much of a budget (family, kids, mortgage, etc.) so I try to get as much mileage out of budget gear. Here's a rundown of my gear:

* Reaper DAW

* Alesis iO4 interface

* Tascam TH-02 headphones

* MXL 990 condensor

* Ibanez SR885 5-string bass

* Fender Tele (made in China)

* M-Audio Keystation 49 key controller

* various free VSTs


I'm looking forward to participating here and hearing some great stuff. Thanks for reading. Cheers.
