Influences: Bottle Rockets, Holy Modal Rounders (Stampfel and Weber), Norman Blake, Hendrix, SRV, Buddy Guy, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, The Blues, Neil Young
If Neil Young and The Holy Modal Rounders had a litter of baby songwriters the runt would be T.C. Elliott
T.C. has written over 800 songs and at least one of them doesn't suck.

Thanks so much for the spoken word. I just had a quick listen while I was doing something else. My first impression was that I'll move what I had for bridge to verse 2, and use yours as part of bridge. Thanks so much for helping me out!
thanks for checking out the political abyss remix! havent been here as much as i'd like in march, - hows your album project coming along?
Thank you for listening to "Downsize to Us" and for your kind comment.
Hey there, I can shoot you an email with some links to sites I've designed or helped people out on (with the platforms I suggested to you for "user friendly" options).
Hey T.C.! My situation is a lot like the other person who responded to your forum post in that we really do not have an affordable option for the type of website you need. We primarily work with businesses and our typical site is hundreds of pages with complex systems such as maps and calendars. Our solutions really would be overkill for what you need.
Okay, you're next up on the Kaiju, sir. As mine was an instrumental I think it only fair to pass on the lyric of Rod's snippet, which was "we will bury you with love."
Ending chord is d minor, drums are 135 bpm.
Aw man, don't even sweat it. I was more concerned about the content being offensive. All is good on my end, brochacho! I'll be checking out more of your tunes.
Congrats on the win, brochacho. So I've got a question for you - last FAWM I sent a track to you. I know it was a bit "racy" but I didn't hear back from you. Was it a thumbs up or down? No worries, just wondering. Sometimes when I veer into subject matters, it may not always translate the way I intended it to. Just curious is all...I may complete it and then I may just chuck it in the factory vault. Thanks as always for dropping by! *cts tosses up the peace sign*
Haha, thanks for both the comment on "Until the Key Fits the Lock" and forgiving me!
Thanks for all your comments, I really appreciate you taking the time to listen!
Oh, yes, I remember the Margarita song now. (I was wondering if my brain fog was too thick for the appropriate memory to surface.)
Thanks for your kind compliment. I always feel bad that I don't get to do much listening during February anymore. But, I usually find myself rather busy with behind-the-scenes stuff. Still, I'm glad to be able to help keep this place going.
TC, have you and @ericdistad ever collabed on a song? I can't think of one, and that seems a real shame. There was no way Eric could have done it this year (he was working an average of 90 hours/week for the better part of the month). Still, I would love it if you'd consider it at some unspecified future time...
By the way, way to hit it out of the park: 24 songs! Clearly, I have some listening to catch up on! I'm looking forward to that!
I never did end up getting to that backing track you sent. If it's okay with you, I'd like to hang onto it for 50/90 - or perhaps sooner. It's been a great FAWM, and I look forward to catching up on listening!
It has been a great pleasure interacting with you this month. I'm glad to have met you, and look forward to seeing you at 50/90 and between then on the intarwebbz . Thank you.
Thanks so much for getting me involved in this. I've enjoyed meeting some of the other fawmers, collaborating, and just producing so much music. Some of it I may never play again, but some of it I really like. Of course I like all my songs (almost) when they are first completed. They are like your children. It takes a while to get an objective view. I don't know how you do 23 and work at the same time. Thanks again.
Thanks for the great comments on Connor's Drummer's Finalé & my ½ song Dead & Back. Glad you stopped by to listen this year. I have to catch up on my watchlist - my plan for March.
See You In The Shadows…
So happy you like it!
Thanks for listening to the "Contagious" tune. Love the Faces, though I wasn't consciously trying to cop that feel... But I'm honored you heard that at all...
I'll be over Sunday night to get some listening in (while I'm driving around for work).
I'm sorry - time's been a difficulty this month.
OK NOW WE CELEBRATE. WINNER.
Thanks for the comment on
Anonymous (face in the crowd)
The palindromic structure just kind of happened. I did think of another title that I was going to go with, but it would probably be better written by the artist formerly know as "Pig Farmer".
The (quickly discarded) title is "The Unknown Shoulder" and it's all yours.
yes!!!!!!! congrats on 14 hit tracks!
Thanks for your kind words on So Hot. i enjoyed writing it and singing it
Thanks so much for taking the time to listen and comment on Grace!
Thanks for your comments T.C.
Oh wait it appears I'm getting ahead of myself. Leap FAWM!!
You winner, you! Bravo!
thank you for your comments on my 'subway blues' song! Yes it was sad to leave the city but another life opened up here in Taos. Hope to return some day though. You never quite get NYC out of your heart.
Thanks a bunch for your kind comments on "I Hope That I Find You"!
Yeah, I only got to watch about 3-4 minutes of that video to pull samples. There might have been something good later but I had to start recording music parts! Thanks for the listen.
Thank you for the kind words about SS Dreamtime
Yeah, go for it! I have a feeling I'll be ready to rock when I get back.
Do you have any guitar tracks you'd like to throw my way? I'm eager to do more rock!
Hey TC, thank you so much for your comment on 'I Don't Need Somebody (I Hate You), much appreciated!
There were supposed to be two other people writing songs for Errol. I just got done with my second song first.
Thank you for the nice comment on "Mountain Corpse."
It has lyrics up now, if you're curious.
Thanks for your comment on my Snakes in the Garden lyrics. My first skirmish, pretty fun.
Looking for lyrics? Three unclaimed on my wall. See if any call to you for music.
Happy FAWM. Cheers, Mark
Thanks for getting me to do this. I'm having a blast!
Thank you so much for your kind words on my song Hollow Eyes!
Good to know TC! Thanks for the kind comments on supergirl and serendipity.
nice blog too...you go with your cool self!
Cool! But again, no pressure!
Hey, TC, during 50/90 you expressed an interest in possible collabs. I know you've been working 12 hr. days so no pressure at all. But in case you do have time and feel up for it, I thought either of these two might suit your style:
Thanks for your comments on my first lyrics - it makes me want to write some more!
Thanks for the encouragement tonight!
Hey! Always good to see familiar faces (er.. Well you know what I mean). Hope you've been well. I always look forward to listening to your stuff every year.
Thanks for your comment on 'Anyhow'!
Thanks for your review of "Jubilee", and for understanding it!
Thanks for the comment on "Open Up Your Mind." I enjoyed singing it.
Hey man! Thanks for the message. Have a great FAWM.
oh and a ps, -to answer that other q on my first song- no, that song was not 'about' jfk as such, just the whole concept of well-known assassinations, of which JFK is one but not the only one of course.. just thought the reference to the 6th floor would be evocative of the subject in general, wasn't doing a detailed analysis of jfk/warren commission, etc. and yeah, alot of 'em are 'more then one shot' but its the idea of 'one shocking event' i think.... anyway, best.. keep writing!
thanks for your comment on that skirmish song (and more songs about to be posted!).. to answer your q, I think i'm going to email you rather then have your soundboard here taken up with my thoughts on your political-themed question... look for an email later today..
Hello, TeeCee, your first song is a fast start.
And it starts with a bang, not a whimper in sight (I hope).
Just popping in to touch base.
does the fawm start time take into account the 0.6 microseconds that the earth has lost since they built that dam in china?
Hi TC! 800 songs already?! Hope there will be some more to add to this impressive song-account after February...
Good luck, I liked your spintunes song!
Howdy TC! Have a good FAWM!
Hi TC, enjoy, I'll be dropping by.
You down with 'ol TC? Yeah you know me hey man, how's it going? Glad to see you again this year!
Looking forward to it!
Hi TC! More FAWM!!
I've been scarce around the GYAWS page lately, but I'm delighted you're here, and look forward to following you this year!
Yo Bro! ☺
Hey, TC. Slowly getting around to everyone's pages before the February fun begins!! Best of luck to you this year! Always fun to hear what you do!
Hi T.C. That piggy sure takes his time on the toilet. Hope you have a great Fawm 2016.
Hello and happy FAWMing!
Hey!! Excited to see what you come up with this year! Have a great FAWM 2016.
Thanks TC!!! Finally someone gets that post, lol............
Hi T. C.! Here we go again... It's going to be great!
Hiya T.C.!! Hope you have a great FAWM 2016! Looking forward to hearing some new songs from you! (and I promise not to argue politics at FAWM!)
Hi Tom, looking forward to hearing your new songs.
You were talking about drums, I think, but chat thought I should see when you said, "Helen, I love you". Midi love is the best love
What's up, brochacho? I know several of your songs that don't suck! Remind me to hit you up later - I've got something I meant to follow up on this past 50/90.
Here we are again, no matter what, when February comes. This is the nicest tradition I've ever claimed as my own. And it's good to see you here again too, TC, long-timer. It's my seventh time suiting up! Let's go snag us some songs!
Hey old friend. Cheers from another of the class of '08. See/hear you soon!
happy FAWMing TC
I kept getting notifications from the chat program that you were talking about me. Fortunately, you were saying nice things.
Hi T.C., lets do this!
Hi, kind sir. I sit in rapt attention for your masterpieces.
Good luck this year! I'm watching you
Hey TC, goodluck for Feb, looking forward to listening to your tunes
Looks like things are revving up T C
Good to see you too. Happy FAWMing
Likewise! Welcome back
Yeah man FAWMcast! - how difficult is it to setup/run. Do you need some help this year?
Can't wait to lend you an ear!
DUDE. will there be FAWMcasts this year?
Hooray, it's almost FAWM time!
