Hi, I'm Austin. This is my 7th time a-FAWMin'. Looking forward to the throbbing agony I've come to associate with the season. The throbbing agony of creation.

    Are you Longmont, CO? If so, you are the only other FAWMer I'm aware of that was active in 2017.

    Thank you for listening to and commenting on my songs 😁 I'm definitely planning on having the songs blend into each other (I'd preplanned all the keys, tempos and made an instrument template on Cubase so it'd work!).

    If you ever want to collab, drop me a line 😁

  • @krayzie003  Feb 19

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my tunes.

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 19

    Thank you for coming by and listening to my jazz song It Wasn't Me.
    Since I am such a fan of your work, means a lot to me

  • @phlecksy  Feb 19

    I'm definitely on for that!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 18

    Thanks for popping by to listen to "Vile" and "the Road Is So Long"! I appreciate your feedback. 😀

  • @samhealer Feb 16

    Thanks again for the comment on Dust, Austin. You're keeping up more than I am this year!

  • @mattblick  Feb 14

    Hey Austin is there any chance you would be interested in doing some additional lead vocals on this track? http://fawm.org/forums/topic/7075/#c1...

  • @zecoop  Feb 12

    Hey, check that out!!! I definitely did not remember you had that song! Hahaha.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 11

    Whatever you decide to do....I'm not a singer, but try to give a nice foundation for a singer. In always surprised how singers do their thing.

  • @dustymason  Feb 11

    Oh, NO! You didn't! Yes, in fact, you did. I've just come back from watching some of your videos. All are hilarious, po and ign'ant. Again. You do ROCK!

  • @guatecoop  Feb 11

    So, my brother, @zecoop, told me that I should give you a poke and a prod to consider singing on this song of mine....If you are interested, great! If not, you can enjoy the tune with no strings attached....

    I'm checking out your website your stuff is so great - really love 'the last one'. It was bugging me what your voice reminded me of but I figured it out it was money mark.

  • @mardeycranbleson  Feb 11

    Hey thanks for commenting on a bunch of my songs thats really appreciated! I'm checking out your stuff right now...

  • @insaneian Feb 10

    "The Throbbing Agony of Creation" should be the title of your FAWM album...thanks for commenting on my Bowling Green tune!

  • @yam655  Feb 10

    Thanks for the comment on "Death Meat Coffee." I can tell you that I very carefully placed each and every chord in the song. I just, you know, don't have a clue as to what I'm doing. 😀

    I'm serious about that, too. Prior to this year I've been doing crapcapella (lo-fi a-capella). Mind you, I like crapcapella as a genre, but for me it is time to grow... Whatever the hell my genre is this year, it isn't that. 😉

  • @electrocelte Feb 10

    OMG yes, and that tune would be called Amazing Grace! But let me say though, that tune is money. Absolute gold!!! 😉 Cheers Austin and thanks for listening. The Last Wizard of #Everdawn is a wily one, and he is setting the trap for our heroes...

  • @zecoop  Feb 10

    Austin!! Thanks a ton for all the time listening and commenting... I really appreciate it a lot. You are on a roll this year. Can't wait to hear the rest. 😀

  • @frenchcricket Feb 10

    Thank you! Sadly we're on hiatus as we only have two active members left. And one of them (me) is super busy with university atm

  • @electrocelte Feb 8

    HAHAHAHA! Yes that track was a little extra on the experimental side. Perhaps I should adjust my tags!!

  • @robinh  Feb 7

    Hi Austin, it's Robin from Bedford Level Experiment. About to listen to Spaceman...

  • @michaelsalamone Feb 6

    Hahahaha. Thanks for swinging by. Yeah, I tried something new where I wrote as many as I could, recorded all of those the next two days, and now and mixing individually and posting. Then will try to repeat. Trying to master the art of time management. ((shrug)) Really enjoying your genius per usual this year, by the way.

  • @meriamber  Feb 4

    Thank you for stopping by and listening to my Grimm Brothers inspired song 😁 I'm in Australia so it seems like I did the song a day early 😉 really it took me two days to put together. Yay for Regina Spektor!

  • @samhealer Feb 3

    Hey, thanks for the comments Austin! Looking forward to hearing what else you get up to this year 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Actually, sorry... I do have a magic secret for that warm sound. Shakers. Always. Shakers. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Thanks for the listen... I'm starting to get into the groove of FAWM. Getting past the first song is always a lot of work, but starting the journey always feels good. I was really happy with the song you checked out, and felt that all the natural elements worked well together. No special sauce or secrets. Mic'ing things up in the studio and playing them with my hands always gives a nice warm sound. And last night the song writing muses played nice with my fingers. 😀

  • @tawny249  Jan 31

    Hey there! Yay, more geeks! Happy FAWMing. 😀

  • @meriamber  Jan 30

    Haha, it took me a good year (quite literally a year) of working with the songs before I was ready to officially release them after writing them during FAWM 😝 Looking forward to hear what you're going to create (and maybe just maybe release as well 😉 ) this FAWM!!

    P.S. I'd watched some of your stuff on the Tube before! Awesome work 😁

  • @insaneian Jan 30

    HIIIIIIIII AUSTIN!!! 😝

  • @michaelsalamone Jan 30

    Yay! Can't wait to hear what you do.

  • @zecoop  Jan 29

    Really looking forward to more of your amazing tunes... Always a highlight! 😀

  • @yam655  Jan 29

    I enjoy your stuff. I'm glad to see you back!
