Influences: The two boxes of records under the stairs in my parents' basement in Ohio.
This is my 12th (!) FAWM. I've also done 10 50/90s.
Husband, dad, dog petter, yogi, troubadour, multi-instrumentalist, beachcomber, gardener, meditator, custodian, beer drinker, sunrise/sunset watcher.
Last year, I played 14 different instruments - a FAWM's worth - on my songs. This year, I'm moving way back in the other direction - mainly guitar/vocal, like I did for my first FAWM in 2008.

Thank you for listening to Providence. The dance between guitar and voice - hey! that sounds like something a songwriter would say!
Thank you for your kind comment on my song Bullied. It's especially meaningful to me that you, as a teacher and parent, feel it conveys the emotions I was hoping to relfect. Thank you so much.
I did end up doing the Beryllium song, just so's you know. And Boron is on its way either tonight or tomorrow morning.
thanks for your positive comments on my Prostate Song. You would be very wise to keep an eye on your PSA. It is not an infallible test, it can give false positives; but better to be safe than very sorry indeed, eh?
thank you for your comments on Cans of Film. They were especially encouraging as what you said is exactly what i am trying to do.
Thanks for your comment on my bucket song. No, I have not tried filling it yet, I’ll just going to have faith in my woodworking skills and fill it when I need it. It will work!
Thanks for listening to “It’s Too Cold (Take Off Your Coat).” Glad you enjoyed it, appreciate the comments. 😁
Thank you so much for your comment on Dear June - means a lot!
Thanks, Chip, for the kind words on the "I Was Not a Liar" audio. 😀
Nice job on Old Friends. I enjoyed your treatment of these lyrics. Thanks!
Hi! Thanks for comment on my "Liar Liar" lyric - and yes - Aretha, the Queen!
I would be pleased to have you collaborate with me on Old Friends and Angel n the White House. Look forward to the results. BTW I really like banjo music.
Hey Chipwithrow, thanks for the comment on my song I appreciate it.
Wow dude, have you EVER floated me up to the top of my tree.... thank you so much. I can't believe you have so many songs up already... I'll listen to more tonight...
Beryllium (atomic number 4) is in the writing phase right now! I am having lots of fun researching these to write them. A little re-education in chemistry. 😀
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Open Road." My cowriter on it and I are working towards making licensable music so the cinematic feel was on purpose.
Thanks for listening to / commenting on my "Wonderful Misery."
> I love how the piano line follows the vocal line (or the other way around)!
Funny you should mention it: in my DAW, the piano track is labeled, "Piano Guide" -- I originally sequenced it to help me stay on track singing the patter stuff. But when I muted the track before recording "real" accompaniment, I found I missed it, and so put it back, adding only a bass organ part.
Thanks so much for your comments on "Chemical Men," which gobsmacked me with their generosity, re. my singing and guitar playing. I wish I could still be an American football fan but honestly the physical damage it doles out makes me sad. Why not high-performance flag football?
Thank you for reading my bio, I really appreciate it! I'm right now in the process of recording my first song hopefully I'll get it done by tomorrow. I'll listen to yours while get the chance too. Oh and yeah, Publix is a good place work at! It basically is like my second home!! lol
I'll save Old Friends for you. glad you like it so far.
Aw thank you for your comment on I Remember When! Sort of good timing for your wife to be away during FAWM? But hard too - I hate being away for long from my family.
Thanks for the comment on Read The Card. Yeah, unlike anything I've ever done. But it was fun messing around with the various settings on Garageband.
thanks for the great comment! Yes, that's my Oscar Schmidt I lovingly call Leviathan. It's my main instrument now days, and I'm trying to use it more. I actually had this one modified with a jack, which makes for some fun sounds.
Hey Buckeye, look at Old Friends. Maybe that would work for you.
Hi Chip. Glad you're here. One of these days I meed to make my way down to Ft Myers. Until then...
Cheers for commenting on Memo, Chip. It's a quirky wee one, isn't it?
Hi Chip. Kinda crazy how long were been doing FAWM, isn't it? Thanks for stopping by my song. Have a great month of songwriting!
Oh no not at all - I took it as a massive compliments because I’ve always struggle to write love songs without worrying it all sounds cliche. Your comment was a big confidence boost!! I look forward to seeing what else you produce during FAWM, good luck 😀
Thankyou I’m glad you thought I had a unique take on a topic covered many times 😀 hopefully I will get music - I am looking for a collaborator as unfortunately i can’t play any instruments (although i am learning)🤞
Thank you so much for your kind comment on Schlaflosigkeit. <3
Thank you so much for the kind words and feedback!! 🙏🔥
Thanks for kind words on Lies and Goodbyes. (It was a ukulele, not a mandolin)
Welcome back . Good to see you here now I hammock settled in Thailand . Hoping to get a couple of demos done but mostly am looking forward to listening my ass off
Thanks for the welcome, looking forward to it!
Jeez I po along to say hello and there’s already two to fill my ears . Brilliant . Will get on it tomorrow 👍
Thanks for your comments on my uke song! I'll get there!
I think I learned about the on the warren huart videos, then my brother reminded me. Because of the tuning and register, it is very different sounding than a 12 string. Maybe some songs will come out of that.
Hey Chip! My album is all old stuff, much of it from FAWM/5090 of course. This FAWM will be completely separate. Thanks for asking. Happy fawming!
hi chip , I look foward to hearing some songs from you, Have a great FAWM,
Definitely open to collaborating again this year! Friday will be here soon!
Hello from another OSU guy (Engr '63). I do only lyrics. Let me know if you are interested in trying to work something out.
Hey Chip, Hope things have been good with you! I'm looking forward to another year of FAWM!
Chip, happy FAWM 2019. Looking forward to hearing you again this year. Have a great one.
Happy FAWM <3
Helloooooo! Let's do this!! 😊
Yay FAWM! Welcome back
