Influences: Charlie Puth, Allen Stone, Avicii, Halsey, Hozier, Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi, Phillip Phillips
I studied contemporary guitar in school, and now I co-write, produce, teach music, and occasionally release music.
This is my fifth year of FAWM. Right after my first year, I picked my favourites and released an EP! (https://garrettlajoie.bandcamp.com/al...)
In 2019, I collected songs from FAWMs past and released my second EP! (https://garrettlajoie.bandcamp.com/al...)
I haven't hit the 14 mark in the past couple of years. Hopefully I can get closer this year!
Looking forward to hearing everyone!

Glad you. Liked my "Antarctica" song. The instrument I am playing is an eight string tenor ukulele. The uke equivalent of a 12 string guitar.
Hi. Thanks for your kind words. I have tried to re-phrase that line you mentioned and I totally agree with you. See, that is what constructive feedback is all about 😀 I did not realise that line needed improving until you pointed it out. So thanks. I'll have a nice listen to your stuff when I have finished sleeping 😀
Thanks for your thoughts on Turn Right on Red. I do have a difficult time with metre, always have. It seems I don't really have an internal clock or whatever that brain thing is. I've tried a metronome, but after a while I don't even hear it. Whenever I really want to record something half decent I work with a sound engineer and he gets it correct. But I do keep trying, maybe a backing track???
Thanks for your thoughts on "Two Kinds of People", I think you're spot on, this is not a finished piece. I'm struggling a bit between developing ideas and pushing forward to the magic number 14. The feedback helps a ton
Thank you! been really working on my voice and putting melodies to lyrics. Seeing one of my songs on your album really inspired me. I’m hoping to make my own album this year. check out the newest song I posted “oh my darling” (not my lyrics) it shows a side to my voice I wasn’t even aware of.
You’re well on your way to 9. I say you get 14.
Thanks fo the listen to "The Vision" and your kinds words about it.
I am only just discovering Garage Band. I can see why so many musicians have used it as a note pad. It's an incredible piece of kit for a free programme. There is nothing close to it (even for money) on Android.
Yay super glad my silly teacher song resonated. The class I teach is an intro to music class. it's basically the class for the kiddos who are still a bit to wiggly for formal instrument lessons so we play with all sorts of fun stuff, learn about different genres, and have dance parties with scarfs. My coworkers and I are joking we should make a music video of us all acting like 5 year olds.
Hey! I was wondering if you were fawming this year. Thanks for the encouragement on “Little Star”.
Hey Garrett, I've got my definition in mind, however am keeping the mystery and leaving the definition of ama to the listener. Thanks for the comment!
