This is my my 4th FAWM.
FAWM has really been instrumental in honing my song writing.
It’s been 2 years since I decided to throw money time and effort into releasing my first and (possibly only) album titled All God made you be. This Fawm I'd like to continue working on the Flip side of the album Basically beautiful.
I have to made some progress 7 tracks were completed till lockdown slowed progress. I have about 7 in WIP state.
Happy FAWMING everyone

Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Lights at Sea", I appreciate it!
A belated thank you for the nice words about "Choir's Back!". I appreciate them.
Thanks for giving my songs My Hope and This I Know a listen! Hope you had a great FAWM!
Congrats on your trophy! Sorry I'm late in commenting, tough February, but happy to get around to listening now!!
Thanks so much for listening and kind comments on my song ‘Trail of hope ‘ . Appreciate it .Cheers 😊👋
I sent you an email, with a link to a Google Doc.
Thanks for the kind comments on "Telephone Bar" -- wish I could have properly finished and recorded it, but I got close enough to feel OK posting it. Thanks for helping make my first FAWM a fantastic experience!
Thanks for checking out "Cliffhanger" -- really appreciate the encouraging comments!
Hey Neil, thanks for thinking of me re: "She's a strange one," but since I collaborated on this song with you in a past FAWM, I'd appreciate it if you could remove me as a collaborator this year. Kind of nit picky of me, I know, but I only want to count songs I worked on this February for this year's FAWM. Thanks!
Hi, Neil! Thanks for your kind comment on “Meet in the Middle”!
Thanks for listening, and commenting on " Everybody Talkin'." good fawm 2021
Thanks for the welcome Neil i had honestly forgotten about the link you sent me.
Thank you so much for the visit and the feedback! 😀
The music for Offer ItUp is avail. Thanks for your kind words.
Thank you for your comment on Spiral!
absolutely, go for it! let me know if you want the backing track w/o the lead synth for recording vocals 😁
Thanks for zonging my song To Be 58! Looks like you have been quite prolific! Way to go.
Hey Neil, thanks for the comments! This year's been kind of busy for me and I feel like I am only giving about 20% effort. Every time I want to write/record something gets in my way.
I need to catch up on your songs. You are almost to 14!
Thanks for your feedback on "Any part of you", much appreciated.
O and thanks for the kind words on Papercut
I'll relay them to my cowriter
Ha! Michael Jackson he says... that guy has never turned up for any appointment I made with him.
Hi Neil. Thanks for listening to Whatever You Do. Great to see you've been so busy with eight songs already!
It’s a triangular picked/strummed instrument you may have seen on Dr Zhivago. Russian. Tuning (I believe) is E E G (2 nylon in unison, 1 steel). My wife is Ukrainian so I’m a little sensitized to the culture.
Thanks for your kind words on Be Careful What You Tweet!
Thanks for the message! Wishing you a great FAWM as well! Hope its a really productive one. Looking forward to hearing your music!
Thanks for listening to Living on the Moon!
Just thought I’d let you know that my collaboration with Jordan for “Throwing Bombs Behind Enemy Lines” is up, if you’d like a listen.
I appreciate the kind comment on my tune! Thank you 😀
Hey Neil so good to see you back! Thanks for the nice comment, much appreciated 😀
Hi Neil! Thank you for checking out "Where You Belong" my song. This really gave me an honor. I actually went to listen to my own song after I read that you've listened to it lol, thanks for letting me enjoy my song for a change... (been working on it nonstop so haven't even stopped to enjoy it if you know what i mean).
Have a great fawm! I've just finished commenting on your first lyrics. Enjoy!
you are already soaring, my friend!
Thanks for the comment! Happy FAWMing!
Neil! You've probably noticed I haven't been terribly active in 2020. I really hope to turn things around starting this FAWM.
No, no daily vlogs this year (still recovering from how tough that was!) but I may do a weekly update...
Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
Thank you so much Neil, you are very kind. Looking forward to your beautiful songs, singing and playing. Have a great time.
Hey! Thanks so much for your congratz and your lovely message! Have a wonderful, wonderful FAWM!
Absolutely right. And let’s give it a go! I’m going to be using BandLab for collars this year. So good and free!
Hey Neil! Just 1 week till FAWM!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.
"Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.
But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in our contribution to culture.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
Congrats on the album - I’ll check it out! Hope you have a great FAWM. Thanks for all the comments and encouragement last year!
