Influences: Elliott Smith, Pixies, Gillian Welch
I did NaSoAlMo years ago, but my first two FAWMs were 2015 and 2016:
I had to skip 2017 because I was traveling. So I'm pretty fired up to be back at it in 2018! And by "fired up" I mean I changed my guitar strings and started fine-tuning my recording setup as of late December.
I do themes in hopes of narrowing down subject matter so I can focus on music instead of spending time refining lyrics. This approach has never been successful, so I'm sticking with it. This album's theme will be (hopefully 14 of) the experiences I had while circling the globe from summer 2016 to summer 2017. So apparently I've narrowed down lyrical subjects to things that have happened on Earth.
Life got complicated this month as I pursued and accepted a job offer and also scored a new apartment. I took 12 whole days off from FAWM! I’ll still try to finish but...we shall see.
Thanks for your comment on my "Before the Coffee Kicks In." I just updated the demo, transposing and adding vocals.
Thanks for listening! Looking forward to hearing the rest of your effort as well - love the harmonies on "Lisbon Calling".
Thanks for listening to my coffee song. I'll see if I can't get lyrics laid down this week (my voice seems to be clearing, at least a bit).
