Artist Bio

Influences:   No idea -- I love bluegrass. I love metal. I rarely write either.

I'm a banjoist by day, songwriter by guitar. I like to think I'm pretty philosophical, but I hold that against myself. And that's pretty much what I write about.

First official FAWM for me in 15 years of songwriting. Been very slow on songs the last few years.


For FAWM 2017, I'm trying to forgo trying to write awesomeness (it's rare that it comes out "awesome" anyway) and attemping to write one song per day (not average -- at least one song every single day) with an acoustic demo, regardless of whether I think it's "good" or not.

    You have loads of talent and I always want to encourage others-just like others have done for me. πŸ˜€

  • @lazykat  Feb 25

    Yeah sorry! I was sick and had no power to write songs or listen to music 😏
    But I always enjoy your songs πŸ˜€ Will try to catch up πŸ˜‰

  • @cindyrella  Feb 17

    This was one of my early poems that led to my book. I wrote it about memories of my Dad. πŸ˜€

    Pickin Up PawPaws

    "Pickin' up pawpaws, puttin' them in your pocket..."
    He sang it nearly every time we were in the woods,
    Or pickin' berries
    Or just out for a walk.
    Either that one, or the one with the bear--
    What was it again?
    "Livin' in the mountains, eat a slice of bear..."
    What was it about the mountain air?
    "Livin' in the mountains, that's just the place for me!
    Ollllaydedooo, ollllaydedoo, olaydeee....."
    Did anyone else sing that song?
    I can still hear these songs
    And I sing them to my kids...
    Nearly every time we are in the woods
    Or pickin' berries
    Or just out for a walk.
    "Pickin' up paw paws, puttin' them in your pocket
    Way down yonder in the pawpaw patch...."

    I'm in Florida in Sept 😝
    On the German... I said: Lord the singing sucks and I hate those annoying groupies. Then I cleared my throat and noticed: oh fu** I'm still recording 😝

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 17

    Thanks for listening to "I Want To Dance With You". Guitar compliments are always the best. πŸ˜‰

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 16

    Jeremy, thank you for your review of "Vintage Of The Vine".

  • @spunky4455 Feb 2017

    Thanks a lot for checking out our song Dark Secrets. Yes, I thought it would benefit from a Bowie vibe and I'm glad you thought that.

  • @rebeccajasso Feb 2017

    thanks so much for your kind comments on "the King and I." I have been listening to your tunes, and you have a really great voice!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2017

    Thanks for comments and yeah I seem to be having a lot of Beatles influence this year. Must be bejng in India!!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2017

    Thanks for nice comments on my song Black Fallen Angel.

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the nice comments on Grandma had a Secret. Even though this is a work of fiction, it was hard to control the emotion. Thanks again.

  • @lazykat  Feb 2017

    Thanks so much for your comments πŸ˜€
    Maybe I should translate my German song, it's actually a very funny story even in English 😝
    I'm watching you bro 😜
    Happy fawming.

  • @unkept Feb 2017

    Thanks for the feedback on a bunch of my songs! πŸ˜€ I guess I like 80's sounds. lol

  • @spinhead  Feb 2017

    Delighted you like "The Note."

    I love the difference between writing 28 songs, and 1 each day. I started off aiming for 1 every day and realized I need space to incubate. Still shooting for 30 this month. Two very different challenges, building different muscles.

    I'll be back to listen to your stuff.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Demo is up for a song you said you'd like to hear! I need to get back and tackle your growing list!!!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    Hey! I would like to thank you very, very much for all your beautiful, profound and interesting comments! It was a great pleasure reading them... Thanks so much! πŸ˜€

  • @klaus  Feb 2017

    Thanks you Crimulus, for loving I Worry, I'm Not Happy. πŸ˜€

  • @insaneian Feb 2017

    Thanks for the kind words on my dream song!

  • @haijintonic17 Feb 2017

    Merci pour les commentaires! L'idée m'est venue après avoir vu un écureuil hier. Avec une petite dose d'humour, de mythologie et deux trois images, le reste s'est écrit facilement.

  • @poptarthero Feb 2017

    Thanks for commenting! The backstory to that song and the other 4 in the set are very simple. Each is built from a character in K-ON then they go wherever my mind takes them.

  • @quork  Feb 2017

    Crimulus, many thanks for take my the time to read the lyrics. I really appreciate your comments.

  • @faststrings Feb 2017

    Hey Crimulus thank you for the comment on the song I appreciate it.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    Hey! I would like to thank you very much for dropping by and for your beautiful and kind comments! I enjoyed reading them a lot!

  • @crisp1  Feb 2017

    Thanks for commenting on Black Hole of Me. Appreciate it! I'll come back and give your work a listen.

  • @igg  Feb 2017

    Thanks so much for your comment on Why You Gotta....sad but true!

  • @korrigan Feb 2017

    Hey, thank you very much for your feedback on my song 'An Martolod'. πŸ˜‰ It's very interesting how lyrics are perceived by others - the picture of the candle itself is indeed hopeful. But I wrote it indeed in the thought of a hopeless hope - since she'll be waiting for him for all eternity. Thanks for sharing your opinion! πŸ˜€

  • @chandra83  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your feedback! πŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comments on my song!

  • @happystinson Feb 2017

    Thanks Jeremy for your comments. I'm not really sure what part you mean is a juxtaposition in 121 Days. For Dead Bodies it could be fun doing an inception where he wakes up at the end of every verse but he's still dreaming in a dream... 😁

  • @aerlyn Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment! You have a good point about not needing a chorus. Sometimes we say what we need to in verses, right?

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2017

    Thank you tons for your encouragement.

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 2017

    Thanks for the review; too bad a demo isn't possible

  • @dee Feb 2017

    HI thanks for dropping by and taking a minute to read It's Up to You and leave a comment. Appreciate it.

  • @colgoo  Feb 2017

    Thanks for commenting on "Secrets and Lies". I figured out how to get my MP3 to load if you want to hear it.
    I agree about giving people the benefit of a doubt....some people just rub you the wrong way because they share traits and opinions that remind you of those who've injured you, you know? I think it's okay to separate yourself from them as much as possible... Although it's especially hard when they are public figures, who should be held to a higher standard.
