Influences: beautiful voices, often in harmony, guitars, pianos, banjos, fiddles, and mandolins. basses too. things that can tell new stories with old tools.
Hoping to post some songs, some ideas, some sketches this year. I'll be a little streaky - mostly posting and listening on the weekends! - but I am here for 2020!
Next year another FAWM. Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise. I will hear you next year Brian and hope to put out some more music myself.
Same here BJ it's been great fawming with you and I really look forward to next year as I always do. I don't like being another year older but then we have another year of life and living to express in our music so that's a good thing. Wishing you all the best.
Thanks for all the nice comments on my songs!
"Club-Footed Ferret" could be an old-school Warner Bros cartoon, couldn't it?
Thanks for your comment on "Seed into Tree." Yup, they did a really nice job on it! Thanks for bringing "I Live in a Box" to life! Maybe this has been your most productive Fawm, or have your written this many songs the month? They are all very well done. See you next year?
Thanks so much for your feedback on Northland. I enjoyed composing it. Hope you had a great Fawm and now the listening begins. Looking forward to hearing more of yours!
Thanks for the tunes and all the listens and great comments.
Thanks for the comment on You Were Like That For Me. Instrumentation is Band in a Box.
Thanks for the comment on Try and Find You. I try to get a few faith songs into each FAWM. They seem to buoy me when I write them.
I like your idea about starting the 3rd verse with "it just takes time" to put pieces together...much to think about in March when I go back over these drafts. Thank you.
Thanks so much for dropping by to listen to lip sync BuzzFeed. I really appreciate your feedback and anything close to Laurie. Anderson is quite a compliment. . I hear you about having a little more of the jokester in me. 😮)
Thank you for your comments on Teardown. I'm trying to write a funny, cheerful song soon--just haven't got it yet.
hey Brian!! Cool thank you for listening and for the thoughtful words. I'm still ramping up to FAWM and love it!! writing every day 😀 so now I'll figure out how to put you on my watchlist too.... and listen to your songs whoohoooo!
Take your time, I'm just excited to hear it.
Thanks, Brian, for listening to all the songs, and your kind comments. I'm excited to hear what you come up with for "I Live in a Box." Got a bunch of things to do this afternoon, but hope to come back onsite tonight and do some listening - you've already got 3 posted!
Thanks for the nice words! Yes, with Nancy's words, the song practically wrote itself. They're beautiful, and about ideals that need to be focused on rather than the divisiveness and cruelty that seem to be running rampant these days.
RE: Tomb Raider - Yes, I literally wrote words I thought sounded cool in the spots I needed them. It was quite cathartic.
Welcome back! Here's to another year of FAWM!
