They/them, #queer #indie_folk and #post_punk musician and guitar instructor. Honestly last FAWM felt great, but the time since then I've gotten so little done. I've had a few brutal shots to the ego musically, I've basically done nothing to forward my solo project (Odonian Dream) and still haven't found any solid potential bandmates, but I'm hoping 50/90 will help me get moving again. I think a big goal of mine is to get back to my roots - simple, cutting songs that don't require a level of production skill that I lack. Getting songs out there that have emotional honesty/resonance and a solid structure is more important than being some perfectly polished thing that I'll never achieve by myself, I think. It worked for early Bright Eyes, it worked for The Mountain Goats, and it worked for countless folk-adjacent acts, so I think I've got to stop being something I'm not and lean into the kind of musician I am. That's enough Gabe-therapy time though.

I'd love to be involved with lots of collaborations! Hit me up if you need #guitar #ukulele #bass #dulcimer or #vocals on a track, I'll be happy to find a way to add to whatever you've got. Doubly true if you're somewhere within a state or so of Lexington KY and we might some day get to play the thing live together.

Hey! I'm just informing, that I took you out of the digital 4-track, because we're hitting deadlines. I can put you back to the waiting list, but the chances that we add a 5th or 6th track until this site closes are very small.

Hey there, I decided to change the order of our digital 4 track recording chain. The track is up to @pfoo until end of August. Please let me know as quickly as possible, if you're able to add something after her. Please leave me your e-mail adress to forward the next mixdown.

Hey Gabe! I recently realised that we're running low on time if we want to get the 4 track collab done. Do you think you get your recording done and sent until Tuesday? Otherwise I'd forward the 3rd part to @pfoo and you take the part after her.

Thanks for your update! Fingers crossed everything goes well. The next 2-3 weeks would be fine, then your successor and I have enough time to finalise. I'm curious about your stem!
