Artist Bio

Influences:   music is the organization of noise. noise is all around us.

FAWMER since 2007. Had a different account. Didn't participate in 2008. Have been back every year since.

Every year it seems harder to make time for, but more important that I do. I usually end up with some stuff I can use and that makes me happy. I usually end up becoming a giant fan of other independent musicians and that makes me extremely happy.

I won't say anything unless I have something nice to say, and ask that you do me similarly. I'm here for shits and giggles not American Idol. Is that still a reference?

I'm glad you're here.

    Howdy. I took the FAWM mixes down, because well... It's April, and the February stuff was just a launching pad to a full on soul album and that's happening. Thanks everyone who gave moral support!

    Heyhey, I corrected your name on my soundboard. Sorry about that!

  • @jessica14  Feb 26

    Hey! You were one of the first people I commented about 3 weeks ago on your first song and look at you now. You made it to 14 songs! Congrats! Also, I quoted you on my soundboard. I hope you don't mind.

  • @jamesstaubes  Feb 24

    Yay you're back! We missed you. 😀

    After all of these years, I got hit with FAWM flue and have really been struggling in the wellness department. I've got the final 7 recorded sans vocals and am just deciding how I'll post them before end of the week though. I might just whisper the vocals or something. Ugh. Life. Will have to catch up with listening in March Album Listening Month too. Sorry, fam.

    Alright, life has been crazy but I am up to 6 songs now and with Feb. break I feel confident I will complete FAWM again. Now we need to do a collab. Scram was originally meant to be an idea for us to work together but then it just turned into a funk jam. Are you up for a soul tune with an acapella foundation? I have something in the works I will try and send it ASAP!

    FAWM has entered my subconscious. Last night I had a dream where, "Love Overcomes," was playing. I don't remember any other specifics but the chorus and horns on that tune were ringing. That is a fine song there sir.

  • @expendablefriend Feb 7

    Thanks for the good wishes 😀 I'm a bit sad watching FAWM happen without me this year, but at least I have plenty of cool, new music to listen to. It's nice to feel missed though, so thank you 😀

  • @jamesstaubes  Feb 6

    You are a super cool dude. I appreciate your kind words on, "Soaring." You were able to pull out the positives of my song that I trashed, which now I honestly feel guilty about doing since FAWM is so positive. Glad you're here and I'm enjoying what you're doing this year. Keep it up!

  • @pinky  Feb 4

    Hey! Benjamin Dixon show! Woot woot! Your twitter is how I actually found out about FAWM. So thanks! Can't wait to hear your tunes!

  • @fuzzy  Feb 4

    Hey, Thanx for the comment. Looking forward to hearing some of your stuff!

  • @popmythology  Feb 4

    Thanks for the shout-out on Twitter! Look forward to your stuff!

  • @zecoop  Feb 4

    Thanks so much, man!! Really appreciated the listens and comments, as always. You're making us wait, eh? Well, I'm looking forward to the big reveal already. 😀

    Day 3: Doing FAWM a bit different this year. I'm writing and arranging, then recording, then posting. 7 written and arranged. Recording this weekend. Then we'll try to replicate this new time-management. Thanks for watch listing if you do. I promise I'll have some stuff soon.

  • @michaelsalamone Feb 1

    Day 1: Woke up. Meditated. Drank some coffee. Scrolled the internets. Scribbled out some story ideas for songs. Groomed and manscaped. Going to earn a living now. Will try to lyricize the story ideas at lunch. Will fiddle with a guitar or keyboard, but not a fiddle, when home tonight.

  • @oddaustin Jan 30

    Hey, you too!

  • @jamesstaubes  Jan 30

    Dude, you rock. Glad you're here.

  • @zecoop  Jan 29

    Welcome back to the February madness... unlike that other madness of which you tweet and will remain unspoken in the context of FAWM, this madness is enjoyable. Be well. Good to see you here again! 😀
