Joined The far side of the sun

sunfire

Lyricist, poet who is interested in collaboration..

Don't use pronouns too often to describe myself. After all, I come from and live on the far side of the sun.

Unconventional, observational, reflective, and devilish. Consider me a force of nature in the writng department when channeling the energy to write.

Musical influences? Too many to name.
60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, & today's music are all infuences with many artists. Genres I like or model my work after? Pop, country, hip hop, soul, rap, dance, adult contemporary and more. Boxes don't apply to me but bits and pieces from the far corners of our universe have helped to shape who I am and how I write.

So glad you were happy with Overdrive, I had a great experience developing the vox from Josh's playing and your lyrics!

[avatar]

Hey, glad you like the finished version of Overdrive. It’s a little rough in some places from my point, but @chrismyth02 really bought the magic. Thanks for letting us use your lyrics.

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on my Xmas song. You have been very productive this year. Kudos to you.

[avatar]

Hi - Music is all done for Overdrive. I have asked @chrismyth02 to do the vocals - will sound so much better than mine!! Hopefully all done by the weekend...

@miga

hey thanks for listening to 'send me dragons' a while back! now I get to listen to some of your tunes (or read lyrics =)

@brisk

Pleased you liked the title of Invisible Flood - for me at least it's a word pairing that crystalises a lot of anxiety quite efficiently!

Thx for your comment on yes man

[avatar]

Both sides need to listen and stop the hate. I know I should listen more. But it does bother me, especially after the Insurection, blaming someone else.

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on Down Here in Dismal Hollow. Lately got interested in old timey music so sort of along those lines. My son introduced me to those kinds of songs "Barton Hollow" by The Civil Wars.
Check it out if you're interested.

Thanks for your comment on October's Lies

Hi thx for your honesty you 💯🙈 my communication is probably poor ! I have posted our collaboration The idea is captured I would love to take it to the next level but as a dad of 4 and entrepreneur with to many businesses I think I may only get there by Fawm. Let’s get feedback and see if further investment is worthwhile. Thx for giving me a shot at these wonderful lyrics

@nadine

Hey! I saw you just removed your comments. Bummer, but that's okay. I experimented with @codeenergy acapella and it seems to work pretty well. We're discussing on how to proceed. Thank you anyway 😊

[avatar]

Apologies for any misunderstanding! I was thinking of music while reading your lyrics, but would never post anything without letting you know first and getting your permission.
Do you want to hear what I came up with first before I post?

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for listening and dropping your ideas. I'm glad that my beat inspired you to write something! No I don't have problems spamming the song info or profile with ideas and drafts. But after @codeenergy wrote about his weird coincidence uploading a acapella with the same BPM, I'll check if it works in my backing. Who knows? I'll keep you posted.

[avatar]
@candle

Thank you for the great comment on Heartfelt Misconception. I've gotten quite used to playing the synth with my foot (c/o my MIDI Foot Controller), which is really effective in keeping the mood evolving over the course of the piece. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]
@candle

Thank you, & thank you for being such an excellent lyricist & allowing others to put your words to music. I've really enjoyed collaborating with you.

See You In The Shadows…

p.s. I'm so glad you like my musications of your words.

[avatar]
@candle

Thank you for listening to Wildheart Decadence. It was a piece that just flowed out from my Muse & I'm glad you were able to enjoy it. And I am contemplating something for Endangered Species, so stay tuned for that. Thank you again.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Hi, @sunfire. I'm glad you liked the title, Memories are Everywhere. When my girlfriend said it, I knew I had to use that in a lyric.
Also, thanks for your comment on But I Did. I'm looking forward to collabing with @katestantonsings.

[avatar]

Thanks for the great feedback on my Martian song! This supportive community keeps me fueled. Hope you're having a great 50/90!

[avatar]
@candle

See, that's the story writer in me coming out 😆 Those extra details you've given me have filled in the picture in my mind. Thank you. It's a great story, one that would be fun to develop into something longer (a novella or a novel even), but the song certainly tells the story quite well. The intrigue between the narrator & vigilante is hinted at in the chorus (i.e. "Will you be my man"), so adding those lines in the bridge will only add to this idea. But then, keeping them out leaves the listener with a mystery. Does the narrator ever share their feelings with the vigilante? If so, does the vigilante feel the same? Questions that might be answered by additional lines in the bridge, but leaving them out keeps a sense of mystery that has its own charm, IMHO. But do whatever you feel is best for the song/story you want to write. In the end, that is all that matters.

See You In The Shadows…

We had one of the top 10 highest temperatures ever recorded here yesterday, and August is by far the hottest month of the year so there's that to look forward to.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you! I hope it tasted good! Maybe I should bake some honey bananas as dessert 🤔

[avatar]

Still somewhat around now and again, just still feeling like crap, but somewhat getting better when this ridiculous heat isn't kicking my booty (It's 4am and still in the 90's). I hope to be much more active by this weekend at least, just trying to get as much rest as possible right now.

[avatar]
@aneil

Yes still onboard just had a very busy week with our church Carnival this weekend will try get to it by Monday Thx for the opportunity

[avatar]

Sunfire...Thanks for the comments on the lyrics for But I Did. I'm glad you found them relatable. I'm eager to hear how Kate interprets them.

[avatar]
@brisk

Thanks for listening to Popemobile! I really appreciate it. I settled on Popemobile because it is kind of ambiguously evocative and a bit silly - that's my go to mode! It is funny because the working title was so embarrassingly awful that I can't actually type it out - just try to think of a really horrible, bad taste pun about an orifice of your choice and you're part of the way there...

No problem. I'm glad I could help 😄

@candle

I guess it depends on whether you want it to imply that it's a quick tryst or a drawn out passion, right? If it's the former you're going for, stick with "burn"; or go with "melt" for the later.

Thanks for commenting on my lyrics.

No, thank YOU. I have a thing about firefly songs anyway - you know 100,000 Fireflies by The Magnetic Fields? Its a beaut!

Awesome! I've enjoyed collaborating with you this summer. We should keep it up 😄

@andrea

Thanks for checking out The Call of the Void. I am glad you liked it :)

[avatar]
@brisk

Right, I've got a rough draft, and I'm pretty pleased with the basic thrust, but obviously the deckchairs are still movable. Would you like me to share it with you now, to give you the opportunity of finessing anything with the words, or whatever, or shall I just spring it on you, finished? I am obviously totally cool with either, but I just thought it might be fun for you to have an opportunity for some more input before it is (at least conceptually) signed and sealed in digital amber... Oh, and I think it is customary to give you the opportunity to have a first listen to the final thing before making the thing public here, just in case you think there are some serious problems with the overall concept etc.. In that case, how should I send it to you?

@candle

I'm working on a few watery ideas. Hoping I'll have something to post soon. Thank you again for the invite!

See You In The Shadows…

Thanks Sunfire for commenting on my lyrics.

[avatar]
@brisk

Just to let you know - I've got a bare skeleton for Fireflies - which means an few chords on the piano that serve as a hook and will be the underpinning for the verse, and what I think is getting close to a chorus! Just wanted to reiterate how I love your words.

[avatar]

Hey thanks for the comment on Digital Boy, Analog Girl! You are on a roll here!! Can't wait to check some out.

I look forward to reading your words & seeing what they might inspire. Thank you for the invite.

Sent you an email (to the address I used during FAWM)

[avatar]

Hey, yes, email me. It's djevans53@comcast.net. It would be nice to catch up.

[avatar]

Sunfire so nice to see you here again. I've still not found out how to update my watchlist, so have been missing your writes. I hope you're settled and moved now. Alot has happened since a couple years ago and not for the better.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks a lot 😀

[avatar]

And can you mark me as a collab on What Good is Love so I can post the demo when done, Ta

Sure thing, I would like to collaborate some more. I like many of your lyrics, but I see others have asked first. I will keep popping around.

[avatar]
@candle

Awesome! I'll see what I can come up with. Thank you.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]
@brisk

Woah, you've done so many! Thanks for commenting on Stay Happy! - though I feel in the interests of openness and honesty I should make clear that no actual, real human guitars were played during this song - its all fakery using my favourite plug-in, which makes knocking out guitary sounding bits a doddle for someone who is without the chops/licks/riffs/sniffs.

I will try to give it one or two of yours a listen tonight.

[avatar]
@candle

Merci! It was a fun track to put together. It was great to go back to a workflow that I haven't really followed all that much in decades… (give or take a few songs here & there over the years…).

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Thank you for taking the time to listen and for your kind words!

[avatar]
@cts

Thanks for stopping by the factory. I see a good deal of my folks are making headway early on. I'll be back for me listening and hopefully we can get a collaboration or two happening.
