Artist Bio

Influences:   The sunrise pouring warm light onto my walls and filling my room with the glow of the golden hour.

I like writing songs. And I'm back for 2019. The date above suggests this will be my 13th year.

Learn even less about me here:

In 2015 I started an acoustic duo with Sarah Blick @fiddlerblick80 called Sugar Still @sugarstill (
We played over 400 shows worldwide. Released 3 albums. Drove 200,000 miles.
It's done now. I'm sort of done too. But I'm feeling more inspired as Feb 1st draws nearer. In the paraphrased words of Tim Wille, it's been awhile since I've written a song just for me, held it in my hands, and let it fly away.

My throat still hurts, but I've offered my son 30 minutes of instrumental music for a DnD story he's developing. If you want a lyric, drop me line and a topic. I had a lot of fun doing that last year. I'm not in as cathartically broken a place as I was last year, so the lyrics may not come as easily or viscerally, but you never know.

    Hey, Charlie, always good to see and hear you.

    Hello Charlie, so very sorry it has taken me this long to get over and greet you. Too busy a month outside of FAWM. I still have wonderful memories of seeing you at the FOP a couple years ago as well as catching you in Chicago and just north of here at the Belching Beaver πŸ˜€

    Love you Charlie! <3

  • @sapient  Feb 23

    Your comment on Volcano by me n Caterwauler is one of the nicest I've received all FAWM.
    Thank you so much 😁

  • @dustymason  Feb 20

    Ah. Actually, though I knew where I wanted to be lyrically (read: hopeless), I was not connecting with the song UNTIL the dissonant, backwards tape effect guitar was added. So, I disagree. Rather than an unadorned fake-folk blues, I found a slow dystopian meat-grinder that I could sink my teeth into. However, I do appreciate your input.

  • @dustymason  Feb 20

    Thank you for your comment on my song. Can you please provide me with an English translation?

  • @dustymason  Feb 18

    Yes, we did. We bought a house, and land -but, unfortunately the land and house are in our American Atlantis, five minutes from the French Quarter, if you get lucky with traffic and sea level. Yo, I've missed you. Good songs...especially the instrumental

    I think you and I are both old dogs still learning new tricks. πŸ˜€

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Charlie.
    No need to be bold and confident, just be yourself, because you're awesome and amazing and unique. ❀️
    Wishing you all the best with your throat, I hope it will get better soon. Hugs.

    Hiya Charlie...
    Hope your throat gets better..
    Your songwriting doesn’t need to cause your ace in that department..

  • @erbaer  Jan 2019

    Hiya, Charlie... um... You got some food on your shirt.

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2019

    Heya, CC. Good to see you around.

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 2019

    August already feels like such a long time ago. Sorry to hear your throat is still a problem, Charlie... 😞 I hope I'll have time to ask you for some lyrics, cos that worked really well last year. I'll have to see how the month goes though, as I've already promised quite a few things to quite a few people...

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 2019

    I like the sound of that:

    Quarry not quarrel
    Solution not squirrel

    just a bit of pre-FAWMing, al fresco!

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 2019

    Happy 13th F.A.W.M., Charlie!

    May there be lyrics a'plenty.
