2017 will be my 10th FAWM. There will be protest songs. And swearing. Lots more swearing.
CAUGHT BY THE SOUND, my one and only Bandcamp album is available as an album on Bandcamp. Mostly consisting of songs from FAWMs 2015 & 2016, including such smash hits as 'Rejectee', 'Schitt's Weak Dog', and 'The Winter of Our Discotheque'...see link above.
Stuff I use: Fender electric & Guild acoustic guitars, mandolin, bass, piano, organ, synth noises, drum programming, harmonica, tambourine and assorted percussion.
Thanks for listening! 😊
Thanks for your comments on Turned Around!
thanks for listening/watching 'this is what democracy sounds like'- its gonna be the title track of my new album, in fact!
Thanks for your comments on John Gordon, I enjoyed your America I Don't Know You protest song too.
Hey Rick ., so glad you like Sweet Jazz Music. It was so much fun to put into music!
Thanks so much for your nice comments! I was still a toddler when John Lennon was shot, but I'm glad that I got the facts and the vibe right. "One Day At A Time" was also the title of a Lennon biography that Chapman had read and got him upset some more.
Thanks for your encouraging comment on my soundboard 😀 I hope you are having a good FAWM!
Thanks for the props man! Took me a while to find the tutorial, but I finally figured out how to switch up time sigs. mid song in Reaper. Pretty freakin' cool.
Hi Rick. Thanks for your comments on Do You Wanna Rock (Live!). Good stuff you got here. Listened the first track of your Bandcamp album called "Bandcamp Album" and it was great too! I have to download and listen it after Fawm. 😀
Rick!!! All I can say to you is: SAME! I rely on your gorgeous music to keep me afloat through the madness of February every year <3 And what do I spy with my little eye but a first song tagged "political" and "protest"... awww yeah, this is gonna be good 😁
Dude, what're you talking about, it's all real! Facts, buddy, facts! LOL, just kidding. Thank you for the nice comment!
Hey! I am very happy you used the song for the album, of course, you have my blessing... 😀
Hey, Rick! 😀 Looking forward to hearing your goodies again. 😉
Thanks for the kind words:) very excited to see what you write this year. I enjoyed your music last FAWM. So glad we made it back again.

Hi Rick! 😀
Hope you're in for 2017, I'll be listening. I have always loved Guild acoustics. Mine these days is a Gibson, but still.
