Third year participating in FAWM!
If you've been following my journey, 2010 (in Michigan) - I just lurked and enjoyed the music that you wonderful people make... 2011 (in Michigan) - I actually participated and was quite pleased to hit the goal of completing at least 14 songs. 2012 (in Calgary, AB) - It was tough to complete the 14 songs, but I did thanks to some great collaborators! 2013 (in Windsor, ON) - back home in Windsor from my year in Calgary for work and I'm ready to "FAWM it up!!"
I haven't recorded anything since doing the move, but my little area is set back up and I have the creative bug running through my veins - asking me to stretch out and try some new things.
This year I plan on doing an album called "Inspiration and Interpretation". I'll take some of my favorite songs and do my interpretation of the song, inspired by components of that favorite song. Some of the songs are old favorites, some are new songs that have had a lot of success but may not be my typical writing style.
In addition to these - I'm really hoping to collaborate with you fine folks this year, so don't be shy about hitting me up if you'd like to work on something!

Jae, I absolutely loved all of these songs and I am only sorry that there weren't more to listen to. Brilliant work.

Thanks for your comment on Mr. Quigley Says It's Over. A very rough demo is up which I recorded live on take one this morning right about 7AM. I'll get the timing down and re-record soon. I think this will be a fun one to perform...especially at the end of a show.
@ereganful Mar 1
You're right! I should've made it a drinking song! Haha! Thanks for the feedback!
@redriverrebellion Mar 1

@standup Mar 1
Thanks for the kind words on Careless ... demo is up
@glyne3 Mar 1
Wow! Thanks for your kind comments on my lyrics. Glad to hear you were imagining a tune for it too
@explodingmary Mar 1
Thanks for lookin' in on my poor little snowtune, Jae. It was lonely as a cloud....
@jezbel Feb 28
Thank you for reviewing my song!
@oxygenpillow Feb 28
Jae, thanks for listening to, and commenting on "Wheels". Glad you liked it! Hope you enjoy anything else you might check out. Again, thanks for taking the time to check it out!
@devinhill Feb 28
Thanks for your comment on "The Priorities of Sleep." I just redid the vocals and updated the demo if you wanted to hear it. I think it makes the song a lot more enjoyable now, even if it's not 100% perfect (but it's FAWM, I try not to go perfect )
@debbie Feb 27
hello and thank you for the comment. södra is a big industrial forestry collective in southern sweden. hope they aren't villains (getting a bit risky?) i have a bit of timber in my back garden with it on - it's a nice word. anyway, found this out on wiki then had a lovely (stereotypical) image of a load of guys in checked shirts looking after their forests, but no, it is large scale! i did think of doing the trees perspective, (called why be a tree?) and may do in the future i like this kind of silliness. thanks again xx
@max Feb 27
Thank you so much for not busting my Zong!
Much respect, love ya!
@oxfordinterrobang Feb 27
Thanks for the comment and the kind words. Im actually not to sure if that song should really be folk punk but its what I usually do so it waa probably the best tag. I will for sure let you know if I demo it.
@gordon Feb 27
Hey there! Thanks for leaving such a detailed (and positive) response to my track. Much appreciated and yes, the joke was about already being home when it's time to clock off. The quirks of our modern world.
@kosmonauris Feb 27
Thanks a bunch! I'm glad you liked it!
Yes, the sample is me walking around in a park with an elderly couple singing and whistling with some birds responding.

@dwellingondreams Feb 27
Thank you so much for you comment! It's good to hear positive feedback.
@jrgove Feb 27
thanks for the coments--usually in a band so i think the song needs a little moree "bang for the buck too"
@revgwild01 Feb 26
Thank you so much for your kind words about my new little ditty.
@deadwifescenario Feb 26
Hi Jae, thanks for the coments - defo going to play around with the track more after FAWM but had that riff and vocal for a while and couldn't progress it as I wanted and with 3 days to go, gave into it being more a ditty for now.
@kristi Feb 19
Thanks for your feedback on my lyric, "You Will Be Alone." I actually appreciate constructive criticism, so it's all good! Those 3rd lines in the verses that you mentioned are my *visual* lines...lol...so I'll be looking it all over as I go along....some lyrics need more time to be fleshed out....which is half the fun!
@arthurrossi Feb 7
Hey Jae! Great to see you here! I hope we will be able to listen to some for your newest creations soon! Many greetings!
@errol Feb 4
Wait, have we met? You're in Ontario?! Do you go to Ontario Fawm stuff?
@errol Feb 4
Thanks for the comment, Jnadon! Btw, please tell me when you have a song up so I can leave a comment!
