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.

πŸ˜€

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  3 weeks

    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˜‰

    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?
    Then...
    "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  5 weeks

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

  • @kingwoodkowboy  5 weeks

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

  • @spunky4455 5 weeks

    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 5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

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

  • @acousticmaddie  5 weeks

    Thanks for nice comments on my song Black Fallen Angel.

  • @billgcaldwell  5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

    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 5 weeks

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

  • @spinhead  5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

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

  • @arthurrossi 6 weeks

    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˜€

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

  • @insaneian 6 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words on my dream song!

  • @haijintonic17 6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

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

  • @faststrings 6 weeks

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

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

  • @igg  6 weeks

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

  • @korrigan 6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    Thanks for your feedback! πŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  6 weeks

    Thanks for your comments on my song!

  • @happystinson 6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    Thank you tons for your encouragement.

  • @blackrose1313 6 weeks

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

  • @dee 7 weeks

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

  • @colgoo  7 weeks

    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.
