Firstly, these are just real rough versions of stuff I've written. I've actually slightly changed lyrics/parts of the songs since but just felt like I should throw them up here and get a little feedback. They were all recorded at home on my IPad with GarageBand. I am a terrible guitarist and an ok singer but still just enjoy writing stuff. The plan is just tighten my songwriting up and record them in better quality but any kind of constructive criticism is helpful.

Indie/Rock/pop/singer songwriter stuff in the vein of Frightened Rabbit/Paul Dempsey/Bon iver/city and colour/Ryan Adams etc.

not bad at all, really -

i think singer/songerwriter stuff can easily be boring/passé/bad but you've done a good job in keeping it simple but yet somewhat alluring almost hypnotic...

Keep it up

Thanks for the 'good luck' - though when I say 'first gig', I meant for this particular project..

have been very lucky over the journey and have played hundreds of gigs with various bands so I'm pretty comfortable with the whole thing -

Haha cheers man! That's awesome to hear. I appreciate the kind words. I would prefer to not play an instrument at all and let others do it and focus on singing but I've found it tough to find likeminded people.

I still have a few more to do rough recordings of too. Bought a loop pedal too so will hopefully be smashing that too.

Can recommend Rick at RDMS studio in greenacres. Been a long while since I have recorded there, but the guy was good to work with, very affordable and the end result was really good.

oh shit you only just finished high school?

ok fair enough - you'll meet people soon
We have had a couple of auditions (one tomorrow actually) so we're getting somewhere. Just need one to be keen and stay in it for the longhaul.

I take it you're not interested in coming to the shithole that is Adelaide, Catgirl ? ;)

We're still looking for people, so if anyone is interested, message 'Knight Over Day' on Facebook or PM me on here.

For gigs in between if you have a keys player go full Ray Manzarek.

Some tunes at soundcloud (hunt them down if you prefer Spotify, itunes etc).
https://soundcloud.com/dannywoodman

probably just stick to the ones at the top.

A paladins heart (indie rock) was my trying to work out why some knights got to the holy grail and the others didn't. Hitting other people with swords didn't cut the mustard, so it was about other qualities of man.
Pigs don't fly, I wrote in the last election cycle and was just sick to death of being pestered by people in suits with a fake smile trying to sell crap. Guitar is a bit on the Hendrix side (and by a bit, I only mean that) if that's your thing.
Once I'd kissed a girl. Some bluesy fun I had. Was a bit hoarse for a few weeks afterwards, damn that bridge.
They call him Dave. A bit of fun with a hint of seattle indie. Actually wrote for my big brother, for who I had a bit of hero envy of when I was a kid (I thought he could do anything and everything).

But given that it's the newfangled age of video... This song here, was just a bit of light fluffy pop I did for fun. If you don't like pop, mute the volume I don't care, but the video, in film noir style is an amazing piece of art and worth a watch.

Dude - that's a quality tune! From a drummers perspective I love the composition.
