About me: 
✎ Edit Kirk Gremlin: all vocals, instruments, and production.

Influences: Low, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Westerberg, Tortoise, Jobim, Charles Mingus, Harry Nilsson, Jackson Browne, Velvets, hip hop, lots of metal from Cinderella to Pantera, and pretty much any electronic and alt-country I can find.
I know a lot of those don't come through really, but they give me ideas, and inspire me to pick up the guitar or sit behind a keyboard.

I appreciate you stopping by for a listen. Hope the day (or night) finds you well, wherever you are.

All tracks are available for free. I will upload some more demos in the future. : )

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Gremlin for “BROKEN ARROW”:
That's a jazzy piece of cover art! I'd like to hear a slow, walking bass line trailing this thing, like an old ghost tagging along with an unwitting host.

And maybe some very tasteful little fills on the last 3rd of the composition, electric guitar -- the high end of the spectrum.

Gremlin gave feedback to Rex Yehudi (shoham) for “COVID-19 bLUEs”:
I’m almost imagining this in a different arrangement and slowed down to where it becomes almost like a Hawaiian hulu dance of doom. More poi for this boy, as tasty seventh chords abound! Nature’s vaccine to ward off all blues types. In its current state though, Hank Williams could’ve had a top tenner back in the day with some tasty pedal steel lines added here and there. Nice work!

Thank you for the concepts. It's definitely a rough cut. Did you try that drop b idea (turning the d string i to a b?) that's I think where the lua vibe is coming from. Lol it was a happy accident, but I have wanted to experiment with unusual tuning so now I am forced to...! I will send the latest draft either this week or after I make couple of adjustments. Thanks again

I can get you the current draft if you dm me your proper email.

I feel like your taking mouth shape more seriously in these tunes -- 1/2 of all tone is gonna come from that.

As for essential benefits, the way I look at it we are probably in the best of all times and places (covid notwithstanding). But it's easy for humans to get complacent !level_up_america

PS: Great imagery here :)

Replied to message with email. Yes, it’s all a journey. I feel like vocally I have only improved, while musically I have declined LOL. This is true. We could be in a lot worse place. Haha thanks for the imagery praise. This one oddly enough inspired by Dylan and Dolly

Finally got to check some of these out - very sweet. Good tone. Did you even get my dm about the book I am writing?

I did not. Let me check for that today. I too have thought of a COVID inspired writing session. Will check out DM today

Very rough, execution about 50%, but I especially am enjoying this thing that happened to my guitar -- the "D" string knowb is stuck, so it is now a second B string -- makes some cool combos by playing normal chord shapes. Anyway, worth a lol, perhaps... https://www.feed-forward.net/w.7363_COVID-19_bLUEs
