Influences: A bit of everything.
ANOTHER FANTASTIC FAWM - WELL DONE AND THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!
Now I'm going to sit back and have a cold one!
I seem to have made a feature of going from full power to a drop to almost nothing and then a build up to a full-bore home straight in many of my songs this year.
On the whole I'm pleased with my output this year and feel pretty inspired in my general songwriting work, which has really picked up in the last year.
Thanks again to all FAWMers for your contribution to my February experience and to those of you who take your valuable time to listen and comment on my songs.
See you around March for more commenting & listening.
I'm going to try and recharge my depleted batteries this weekend and resume with commenting and listening on Monday March 4th.

I'm so lucky to met you and Craig on this FAWM site. The music you make, individually and collectively, is stellar. I keep coming back to listen. Thank you so much!
Congrats on the win, my friend. I certainly appreciate the help/support you've given me this FAWM. Our output is killin' and here's to many more demos and a EP at some point in time!
Thanks for listening and commenting on my collab "Since We First Touched" I appreciate it!
Thanks Rob, yeah I'm pretty burned out too I really didn't think I'd finish around mid Feb but I knew I wanted to! Glad I did although slightly variable quality towards the end...😬 See you around later in the month!
Hi Rob, thanks for the kind words on my Monkees tribute! Just heard 'Before the Night is Out' and was blown away. I'll be back!
Don't stop till you get enough...keep on!
Thanks Rob! For sure!!! AND congratulations on 14!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much.
You are right there my friend, can't wait to hear what you'll come up with next!
ha, well done you! If I guessed it, it's only coz you did it so well.
Thanks Rob. You and Craig are my two FAWM heroes.
Hey - finishing up that track...is it still a go to send to you?
You. Are. The. Man. We must, MUST revisit this post FAWM! DO YOU HEAR ME!?! You, sir, have given me such a boost. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
OMG, you are my absolute favorite FAWMer! This is my first year FAWMing, and it's been an eye-opener. Amazing experience. I'm so fortunate to have heard your music. Thank you so much.
I'm struggling with the music on one of my songs "Walking The Rail". It's autobiographical about growing up on Chicago's South Side in the 60's. If you have any suggestions or ideas. I also put a word out to CTS since I also really like his style as well. Here's the link https://fawm.org/songs/94710/
I don't know if this is the appropriate way to ask on this forum, so please accept my apology if I'm out of line here.
Thanks for the comment on 'Inspire', much appreciated.
Hi Rob, just sent you an email!
Thanks for taking the time to listen to more of my songs....much appreciated. You are on fire with your songs this year...like last year! Some great epics Rob.
Hello! just sent you an email!
Thank you so much for your comment on that 'born without the sports gene' song-- as a big Loudon Wainwright fan, I really appreciate that comparison- you made my day! I gotta get around to listening to your stuff here, the little bits i heard sounded fantastic...
No problem Rob, it's an absolute please to listen to your stuff, so well constructed and recorded and always such a nice mix I don't know how you do it! Keep em coming!!
Hey thanks! Yeah I love the idea of Mixbus but I need more time with it. There are some things that were totally natural about mixing on it, but others that I didn’t get yet. I’m not sure how to use my plugins with it and I have no idea about the monitoring. It’s fawm so I did it anyway. I probably should have rethought using that WITH new monitors that I’m not used to yet, but again it’s fawm so that’s the time to try out things.
Thanks for the comment! The drums are pretty much Addictive drums Diabolic presets, I have found they need really little mixing usually, as they are allready tweaked quite far.
Thanks for checking out a couple of my tunes!
Totally impressed from your song #5 swagger on.... terrific man... Added it to my favorites of fawm 2019... Wow, on second listen I also hear the back vox, fantastic!!! Rock on!!
Let’s do it.
Hey there, I just had to watch you because I always get caught up with FAWM and forget to check in with what you’re doing until late. I will give a listen soon. Looks like you’re doing well!
Rob! Hey, what's up man? Thanks for the comment on my Janis song.
Thanks for the comments on my song Rob. Yes, DuoJet all the way. It has been difficult with creativity this year. I do have a few pieces kind of started. We shall see. I will get round to listening to your music soon.
Dark right it works for you. The drum part sounds totally solid and completely authentic. Even the dynamics sounded good as far as I remember.
Thanks for your comment on my song! 😀 😀
Aww, thanks Rob. Coming from you, that means an awful lot to me! 😀
I guess I was channelling more than a little Ozric's in that one. I hadn't realised until you mentioned it though.
Thanks for your comment on my song Since You Left. Happy FAWMing!
Thanks, bro. I wasn't sure if I was the only one feeling this way. Oh, and by the way, I don't plan on doing political tunes either. My first song is just a social observation, not intended as political even though I tagged it that way. Prayers appreciated and we'll keep pushing forward!
Thanks for the comment on “On the Brink.” Neil Young - interesting.
Hey Buddy! Absolutely. Things have taken a rather interesting turn for me. I've got two family members who are very ill and on the verge of passing on. It's very stressful right now so the creativity time is super limited. And I've thought about getting over there to catch up with you, as well. So - on the bucket list it goes. When you have something please send it my way. At this point FAWM wouldn't be complete without a track from us, right? 😉
Thank you for the kind words on my song Birth.
Thank you for listening to my German song and even putting in the effort of translating it. I put the google translation into my lyric notes, cause they are actually pretty good!
Hi Rob! Have a good one!
Hi man, I loved your style on your first song and waiting to hear some more of you. Good luck with the rest of fawm, great beginning. See you around with your new 3 guitars.
What's up man?! Do work son!!
Yes, that sounds great. Look for an email from me!
Hello Rob! Yes, I'd love to collab with you! Looking forward to every day of February!
Hello! Glad to see you again, happy FAWMing. 😀
I almost went for a Jag too but could resist the Tele in the end
Have a great Feb
Hi Rob - indeed both 2008 debuts. Collab? Why the hell not!..
BTW, what are your new guitars? I recently sold both electrics to buy a lovely Custom Shop Heavy Relic Tele
My dude! My ace! I don't have to guess - you're ready to do it up next month. You think you'll have time to swing by the Jelly Factory?
