John A 10


Madison, W US   Jan 2009

Artist Bio

Influences:   I have no idea anymore. Jangly melancholy pop, maybe. Or punk, or whatever. It's hard to tell. Indie something or other?

2019: I am back.


2/17: Aaaand, I pushed it a little too hard and broke a bit, so I'm pulling back before a final sprint. See y'all a little more in the final days!


I've been doing this since 2009, and hit my 14 for 6 years running. 2014 was my last "normal" year of FAWMing. I took 2015 off (minus one song), started 2016 with good intentions but was short circuited on Feb 2 by some family trauma, spent 2017 on a solo project (minus one song), and took 2018 off (minus one song).

I'm planning to be all-in for 2019, or at least as all-in as day-to-day logistics allow. I'm looking to experiment more with some live drum tracks, and some interesting guitar stuff. Open to collabs across the board, though I'm not into the skirmish / exquisite corpse / challenge kind of things anymore. Hit me up.


And hey, I decided to warm up for FAWM by putting together a real demo for one of my 2013 FAWM tunes, "Let's Burn the White House Down". I expect to be hitting this lyrical well a lot during FAWM. Importantly, the studio is up and running. Link below.

    Ahem. Greetings sir. I could use some guitar work on "The Dancer". If you listen, and hear a guitar solo in the middle 4 bars, let me know.

    \m/ Thanks dude!

    Thanks! I'm also looking forward to hearing your riff.
    My influences here are what I'm listening to recently, but i have my roots in rock and metal, it will be a great face off. 😁

    AAA That's the one! It's such a cool tone. Great job with the song! 😀

  • @jessicagraae  1 week

    Thanks for your comments on "The Stairs". It's Nashville tuning I'm using.

    Well, there's me told! Damn good imitation of an octaver though... I'm currently in love with that sound. Jordan wants to collab and I just sent him a glam rock (no, really!) backing track with a filthy octave/fuzz sound on it. I'm going to need to use it again sometime soon...

    Hi and thanks for commenting! Happy FAWM, and maybe I'll see you at this year's FOP?

  • @morti  2 weeks

    I actually liked White Nationalists (the song) quite a lot, particularly that sick bass, but I thought the comment would be funnier if I left it there. 😀

    Great to see you here again! If your dance card doesn't get too full, perhaps a joint musical endeavor might be in consideration?

    Isn't that the whole point of February?
    It's excellent to see you back 😁

  • @devin  4 weeks

    My muse is become rabid with ideas to leave on your lawn.

    But I won't drop anything yet.

    Hopefully you'll stoop and scoop one.
