Fire of Caron is me primarily me, H. Loxley. I am a musician, composer, music writer, singer, author and many other things. I come from Yorkshire, where I have lived all my life. I perform and produce all of my own music from start to finish, other than the mastering.
I write pretty much all my own music, give or take some guitar pieces, although I do write most of them too! I don’t play the guitar unfortunately. I compose and produce everything, that means, all the singing, keyboards, synth and programming the drums, as well as all the weird computer effects you hear. I record and produce it from own home, and believe me, it isn’t a great place to work from, it is damp and has the worst acoustics ever!
I started making up songs as a child. I knew I had natural talent and rhythm from a young age but never learned how to play an instrument properly, other than the recorder. I could make up songs in a few minutes, from start to finish. This was normal for me, but as I got older, I realised it was a rare gift, or maybe a curse, I don’t know.
In 2001, I recorded 10 tracks under the name, ‘Sonic Boom’. The name ‘Fire of Caron’, didn’t come about until much later, but I did re-record some Sonic Boom tracks under Fire or Caron, including Fly Away, Hand of God and Best Thing. Are they better? I think they are different.
Here is a link to my books:-
Don’t knock being weird and different and not fitting in. I believe if I would have been “normal”, I wouldn’t have done any music or written any books. Be YOU, not anyone else!
