This is my first 50/90 but I’ve done FAWM twice. If I haven’t met you on FAWM, well, here’s the bio I posted there:
Burned out from the Silicon Valley technical writing scene, I started writing fiction. But when my agent said, "Your writing has a 'poetic, almost lyrical rhythm” to it," I wondered what that meant. About the same time I met my biological father and his family. My uncle said, “Welcome to the family; now that you know you’re a Holmes, you’re going to want to pay attention to music." I learned my grandmother had written poetry and my grandfather and other family members were musicians (drummers, keyboardists, guitarists, bassists). So I began taking music and songwriting classes, practicing the keys, tuning my vocals, discovering drum beats, embracing Logic Pro and my love for music and music production. All of that has led me here.
But as an update, I would have to say that it's the beat that drives me and is often the bassline of my music. So I gravitate toward EDM - maybe it's from my Disco days or the fact that when I met my father he said, "All my kids play the drums" and I realized how much I had always loved the drums. Anyway, my challenge is to create/produce beat driven music with my lyrics that often start out as poems. Hmmm...
I mostly use Logic Pro, Apple Loops, and some keyboarding.
