2nd year as a FAWMer. Last year FAWM started slow but once I got going it was an amazing experience. Mostly solo writes, but also had some very fun and productive collaborations.

Totally open to collaborations so please feel free to ask!

Struggled with writerโ€™s block and fear for years, FAWM has helped me so much to break free from that. Classically trained musician, but much prefer bluegrass, rock, Americana.

Everything for this FAWM will be recorded using Cubasis on my Ipad with the Apogee One interface. Instruments I'll be using are Pava A5 mandolin, 1976 Mossman Tennessee Flat Top acoustic guitar, Roland FP-30 piano, and Fender Squire P-bass. Microphones are Audio-Technica AT2010 & Sennheiser e845 si.

    Thanks for listening to "Tell Me Where My Money Went". That is indeed me playing the pedal steel!

    Hi @tjeff ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you for your kindness about Summer Wind ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, a collab would be nice ๐Ÿ˜€ I will add you are collab now ๐Ÿ˜€ I can't wait ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for the compliments about After Innocence So Falls. But I have some thinking to do about it. A friend of mine, who's from Texas originally, called me ignorant in probably the most kind way: "It's a very Canadian way to describe gun nuts as 'cowboys'. Cowboys are hardworking and honourable." The song is promising, but it definitely needs work.

    Thanks for listening and commenting on several of my songs! Much appreciated ๐Ÿ˜

    Thanks for listening to 'have to be a fool' - the title comes from that wounded/hurt ego soul feel and I'm hoping to force the song and melody out over the next few days!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 28

    Thx for the great round up! I only just saw it. Nice n rocky.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 27

    Thanks for listening to my crazy uke song!! I really appreciate your thoughtful comment. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 21

    We have been paired for collaboration! How do you wanna do this. Can i send lyrics - or do you want to do music first.? If the former how do you want to get the lyrics.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 20

    That would be great - others you may wish to consider are Chase The Sun or which is also my lyric

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 19

    Of course!!! I would love that! I love your music and I know your talents and skills allow you to sound great in any genre - do you have a preference and I could direct you to lyrics or write some - a few I like that do not yet have collaborators are Chase The Sun and Waiting For The Train and others are open to - just let me know what you might like or what you are looking for. Thanks!

    Hi Thomas! I'm really looking forward to out random collab! Do you prefer to work from existing lyrics, or from a melody or hook idea?

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 2018

    mate if you get time have a look i have a few songs i posted today crying out for a nice little bit of music (maybe unopened letter) ( i am not able to do music at the moment)- i like your stuff particularly alone in the wire. see what you think!

  • @lowhum  Feb 2018

    Thanks, Jeff! Great job with the collab - I really enjoyed the shifty rhythm ukuleles? plus the back vocals on the chorus - the music reminds me a bit of Talking Heads - I'm glad and proud my lyrics made you do something like this! ๐Ÿ˜€)
