This will be my 8th FAWM. My styles are all over the place. Sometimes folkish, others synth-pop or the murky areas in between. I haven't been writing much lately, so god only knows what will happen. That's the beauty of FAWM, I guess. See you there.

    Thanks for the kind comment! No CD planned any time soon, unless I come into an inheritance. 😉

    Thanks for the nice comment on 'Spring feeling'!

    Did we create a new genre? If we did it was by accident. The first two Dereks started out as dares to each other, and from there it developed a life of its own!

    God only knows -- that sounds like a song. Oh wait .... 😀

    Sounds like a (murky) plan, looking forward to it.

    I just wanted you to know that, as I go through my archives of others' FAWM songs to get "in the mood," I'm listening to "Walking" (from 2015) right now and I continue to find it uplifting and sublime. I'm looking forward to whatever you produce this year!
