I'm a mediocre procrastinating disillusioned perfectionist with delusions of grandeur. I like ukulele, food, photography and social media marketing. My favourite colour is yellow.
I'm all over the internet:

Some light and breezy music from Sunday morning. This is a song I’ve been wanting to do a cover of for ages, and I’ve finally set up my home office/music making hub, so here you go.
I couldn’t leave #Hawaii without a new #ukulele… Right? And certainly not without a #koaloha… (at Bob’s Ukulele)

New FiftyNinety song!
Last night I was enjoying a gin (or two) while writing… And came up with a wonderfully morose gin song. I’d only had two, but apparently it’s quite evident (to me at least) the kind of song that I write when drinking gin.
Tonight it’s ready for you to listen to…
There you go. One movie inspired song for your Sunday enjoyment, number 3 for 50/90 2013.
Feel free to join in the Songwriting
madness fun over at fiftyninety.fawmers.org!
Anyone guess what movie it’s inspired by?
So… Still frustrated, but hoping someone might be able to help?
Song #2 is tentatively titled “Heartbreaker”. I have a ukulele-backing loop (listen here http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/1792), and I have lyrics, but I don’t like the melodies.
How about her
That little heartbreaker
Starving on her own
Searching the room for
What’s on offer
Where her signals show
You’re flaunting some
That crimson devil’ll
Be gone by dawn
Her eyes’ll catch you
Oh how they’ll trap you
Waiting for their return
You’ll lose the moment
Damn the present
To soothe that craving burn
Hold on tightly
Here she comes
Your devil darling
Lose til dawn
Take my soul to keep
As I make my heavenly deal
Watch me all through the night
she’ll keep me safe til morning light
Heart breaker roll over
Yep. It’s finally time for 50/90 - the online challenge to write fifty songs in ninety days. Just for shits and giggles.
This afternoon, I wanted to write a song. So here I am, with a backing loop on my uke which I’m liking, lyrics which I’m happy enough with… and 3-4 melody ideas that are shithouse. Basically. I don’t like them.
In January 2013, my baby Mya-Moe ukulele came into my life. It’s taken me almost 2 months to decide on a name for her, but I’ve finally made a decision.
Ladies and gentlemen of the interwebs, please be introduced to my darling, Sophie, a Sycamore tenor Mya-Moe ukulele #816 (http://www.myamoeukuleles.com/uketracker.php?trackingNumber=816&submit=Track).
I wanted to make her being officially name a bit special, and what better way than dedicating a song to her with her name in it? Which led me to this beautiful track by Benjamin Francis Leftwich *swoon*
