David Taro spends most of his life in a box room in South London either doing his day job in publishing (boo!) or writing and producing music (yay!). #indie #pop #rock & #blues. Influences: the Beatles, Randy Newman, blues (various), Tom Waits, Elton John, Paul Simon, Aimee Mann that kind of thing.

(Medical note: I have a minor issue with my throat this year, so may have to go easy on the heavy blues rockers. Whispered indie folk and ambient instrumentals all the way for me... ๐Ÿ˜‚)

I will send you some lyrics suitable for whispered indie folk music. RE PINK FLOYD. their song, colonel clegg, featured a sax solo and they had no sax player in the band, so they asked the audience if there was a kazoo player in the crowd. i raised my hand and they threw me one, then motioned for me to come on stage. where i was quickly briefed on where i was to solo. i was pretty thrilled. only a bit disappointed that syd barrett was no longer in the band. because his were the songs i really loved.

Hi, David! Hope we can do a "whispered" song or two this time around. Still loving the ones from last year. I can see I better get to work!

Yes, nice to see you too, in glorious emerald-o-vision. Can't wait to hear what you've got for us. I'm not sure how much song-juice I have, but presumably I'll bash some things out.

Welcome back, David! I'm sorry to read about your voice but maybe it's interesting to hear you on less heavy music. You still got the rasp, don't you?

Re: Workload. Strictly speaking, it's a bad idea to join FAWM with two albums in the making, but I feel like it's even worse to miss out. So I wrote a list of minimal FAWM experiemces: some challenges I enjoyed, FAWM 2022 composition leftovers and 3 wildcards for collabs - and poof they're gone! Who knows what will really happen, but I don't hope for another album of full band collabs that I cannot maintain right now!

Let's do it!

David! I'm sure I'll manage to record something at some point, but yeah the uncertainty is adding a special pre-Feb frisson right now.

Assuming I have the capability, fancy doing a song together at some point?
