Hi everyone, my name's Simon and I'm a freelance corporate video producer. I also compose background music for videos, TV and jingles etc. I've worked as a recording engineer / producer / mixing engineer for local artists, and as a live sound engineer.

I'm getting increasingly drawn in / sucked in to songwriting. In 50/90 2021 (my first go) I managed to write 6 songs. In FAWM 2022 I managed one song. Gonna try for 7-12 songs this time :)

Any and all feedback and comments etc on my songs is totally fine and appreciated. Thanks!

PS one of my goals is to practise my #mixing so if anyone wouldn't mind me having a go at mixing their song please drop me an email using the envelope icon above :)

Thanks for the very kind comment on my vocal production. I’m kind of a production newbie so that’s great to hear! Still a lot to learn…

Thanks for the comment on "what do you mean by this?" It was fun to write that one! Glad you enjoyed it!

@aeye

Thank you :D. Normally we'd be a bit more active this year but haven't really had a chance to make much. Definitely will be around for fawm. I'm glad you enjoyed what you heard

Please do! We need soldiers on this sonic battlefield

Thanks for checking out Hazy Orange Moon. Feel free to give it a whirl if the muse strikes!

Actually, I’ve never heard that song until now. I just watched the version with JONES and then this one: https://youtu.be/yrlwAIiM5lY
Totally going to steal the dark piano video with just a little lamp spotlight for mood! The lyrics and song in its entirety is exquisite. Thanks for sharing! 🏆

Hope to do some more... will connect email...DG

I'd be down to collab! I dig your style quite a bit. I can do a bit of everything so it might be fun to do a true back and forth collab of some kind. Lemme know!

[avatar]

Hi! Thank you for listening to Rain Lily and for your comment! :)

[avatar]

Thank you for your comment on 'Reverse'! I'm still not familiar with many music production terms - what is BV? haha

[avatar]

I appreciate the kind words on Clovers. Glad to hear you liked my stuff!

Collaborate?

Hey Simon! I really love the sound canvas’ you’ve got going on and would love to collaborate on vocals/lyrics anytime if you’re down!

@mctown

Must've been my glitch... heard them. We seem to share some interests. Maybe we should bang a song out sometimes. I usually do a lyric first and let the other person run with it freely.

@mctown

Sorry...couldn't hear for some reason.. you do have some similar interests to mine..

Thanks for your comment!

Hey Simon! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Much appreciated. I am behind with commenting and listening but rest assured I'll be back.

[avatar]

You're welcome, Simon! Let me know if you post your music on SoundCloud or YouTube, as I'll gladly follow. Have a creative and productive week!

[avatar]

Hi Simon, it's a pleasure :)

[avatar]

Thank you for the listen and the comment! 😀
And listening back, I agree about the vibrato. I'm going to have to remember what I played and try it again (the flutish part is a live tenor recorder driving a VSTi via REATune in Reaper). Either that, or work out a way of adding a natural sounding vibrato... leave it with me. 😉

Hey Simon - fantastic collab on 5090 #4 . Waiting patiently for your version to be shared. I really love what you did with it.

Simon, thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my song "Hype Man". Your compliments on the songs production values and polish really means a lot, one recording engineer to another. I hope that you can hear, but also feel, the time I put into making sure every nook and cranny of "Hype Man" was correct. Thank you for the follow and thank you for the kind words, my friend. <3
