John A 16


Madison, WI US   Jan 2009

Artist Bio

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

2019: I am done.

It's been an awesome month working with awesome people. I look forward to listening to your stuff in the coming weeks. FAWM slid back on like an old shoe. Great to be back, and to feel welcomed. You're a great community.


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).


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.

    Dammit, I got a storage unit full of ICBM's I was hoping to take here and there.

    Congrats on another FAWM win!

  • @ericdistad  Feb 28

    We did have These Orcs Must Die - which was a 50/90 collab, I think. - so I think Minions is #4 for us for FAWM/5090 - but we've done lots of other stuff on FS stuff, so it does feel like more.

    A slot for #5 is already reserved for next year (or 50/90... or something) 😀

    Tonight? Hell I've taken today and tomorrow off work. This game is ON! 😃

    Hey, big spender.

  • @nancyrost  Feb 27

    Well, now I know what you're getting me for my birthday.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 27

    Thank you, and who knows, maybe I'll sell enough albums to make it east one day 😁

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 24

    Thank you for your comments on "Wanktastic"...much appreciated. I like your storytelling.

  • @mikeb Feb 24

    Thanks for the listen and comment on 'Inspire'.

  • @jamkar  Feb 17

    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.

  • @downfallroad  Feb 2019

    \m/ Thanks dude!

  • @fulanin Feb 2019

    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. 😁

  • @ianuarius  Feb 2019

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

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 2019

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

  • @sapient  Feb 2019

    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...

  • @owl  Feb 2019

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

  • @morti  Feb 2019

    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. 😀

  • @debs  Feb 2019

    Yessss I would love that! So excited you're back - let us collab!

  • @adamhill Feb 2019

  • @negasi Jan 2019

    Heck yeah! That's what I like to hear. I'm feeling invigorated this year myself, bout time with all the slackin I've been doing! Am super stoked to hear what you come out with this FAWM 😁

  • @kristian  Jan 2019

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2019

    Drum battles... is that a thing? Will it become a thing? *muahahaha*

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2019

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    What on earth is there to be angry about in this political climate? If I can possibly think of something t will let you know🤪! Rock on!!!!

  • @ericdistad  Jan 2019

    Is he back? He looks like he's back... I think... ?

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

  • @sapient  Jan 2019

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

  • @devin  Jan 2019

    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.

  • @nancyrost  Jan 2019

    So glad you're back!
