It's been a year, hasn't it? I don't think there would be anyone in this community that hasn't been hugely affected by this year. Hope everyone is holding up ok and despite the lack of touring and gigs that you are all feeling creative.

This year was odd because I was unable to see my bandmate for THE ENTIRE YEAR due to border closures here in Australia and I basically played one gig (a crap one at that!)... However, it wasn't all bad. We released our first EP, which went so well and our little collection of songs that we mostly wrote during FAWM travelled so far and wide. It was really something to be proud of and we have Y'ALL to thank for that.

I wasn't so sure I was going to do FAWM this year and then I found myself writing a song in a day today... It was obviously meant to be. Wishing everyone a super productive, creative and amazing FAWM <3 <3

I am a classical violinist, turned opera singer, turned country folk singer/ fiddle player. Lots of interesting music was played along the journey to get here. I love playing bluegrass and old timey music. I have really enjoyed the social aspect that this style of music allows. I also love playing lush pretty string arrangements to cool singer-songwriter type music. And singing! I still sing.

    Hey Dani! 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 contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.

    Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
