To honour the lo-fi high-flying originality of b1rdland
« on: November 13, 2020, 08:04:35 pm »
Steve has been a creative spirit and sharing his home recorded songs and music for some time. He has been encouraging to so many folk who are pushing their own musical boundaries and exploring their own musical paths. He has been delighting so many of us with his songs of unique and distinctive character, his wry, honest and laconic lyrics and his self-effacing manner. Steve has been through ups and some low-downs and he openly discusses the release that songwriting gives. Speaking personally, each time I see a new song drop in from b1rdland on the MONOCHROME GUITARS soundcloud channel, I know it is a day for something stimulating, thought provoking or just cool and vibey.
Hats off to you Steve.
 :)

Well said close!   Congratulations Steve!  I always enjoy listening to your music and I'll often listen to you just cause I can.  Your insight is always great to read and it's always been fascinating to me reading about how you produce your music.     8)

Congratulations Steve shooting star in the galaxy of musical goodness, a star whose trajectory causes folk to exclaim "Goodness gracious look at him go."  Your take on the world and the  way in which you express it with musical dexterity and inventiveness is a gift.

Enjoy your lesson.

Great stuff Steve. To be skilled at guitar and to write and produce your own material is something to be proud of. Being able to hang wallpaper is an added bonus!😃

B1rd is the w1rd! You really rock and deserve being recognized for your excellent contributions. You've developed your own voice with the instrument, which inspires me to no end, and is exactly were I would like to be. You make the guitar sing, cry and punch us in the ears when it suits you. Your tracks show a lot of originality and creativity. Great tone and melodic playing as well (your tele twang is a cut above). I could go on and on. Please keep doing your thing and taking us along for the ride.
