Influences: I wish I'd written "Lake Marie" by John Prine, "Daylight" by The Drive-By Truckers, "River" by Joni Mitchell, "King Of Eyes" by Kempez, and "Talk Of The Town" by The Pretenders.
I'm Jon Horne. If you like the words, more of them can be found in/ordered from your local bookshop, which you should definitely be supporting, these days more than ever. Failing that, try this handy evil corporate behemoth: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jon-Horne/e/B01MUG1341%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt...
If you like the noises, click the Bandcamp link. Includes the obligatory lockdown album, for which I employed a proper microphone and more than one instrument.
Previous FAWM demos in traditional dog-rough lo-fi are on my old (and full) Soundcloud account, https://soundcloud.com/basscommavocal/albums. The Soundcloud link at the top is a brand new one, set up for this year's models.
Collaborations are hugely welcome, in megabyte form and in real life. Hanging out with fellow musicians is a̷l̷w̷a̷y̷s̷ mostly a joy.

Thanks for listening to my song "Amelia", I appreciate it!!
Hi Jon. Thank you for your kind comment. You are welcome to play the song. It means a lot that somebody would want to. I don't really want to make it available for download as it is a rough demo and I am going to be doing work on it. Polishing the lyrics and what not. But chords are pretty simple and the lyrics are on FAWM? If you are a member of the PRS, I would appreciate it if you threw some royalties my way by registering it on your set list 😀
Thank you for your comment on my "dich will ich" song - happy last fawming-days!
Hi there 😀 Yes, you are welcome to FAWMiversion 'I Won't Concede' 😀 But please note that I will be using the lyrics commercially post FAWM, so this will be a FAWM collab 😀 Thank you !
Hi Jon, glad you enjoyed it. Should be downloadable now.
I am shocked and appalled at the deception! Fancy thinking you can apply poetic license to a song?!?!!!! 🤣 ha ha!
Jon, I'd love to hear your thoughts / improvements. My gmail is in my profile. Yes, I know the drums are the weak point, in fact I didn't touch them (FAWM, you know) so there are no appropriate accents, fills, blahblah.
No worries! Was just checking in.
Sorry about the link issue! It should be public now. Thanks for the update!
It's a little nutty to go off of I know, but I can try to answer any questions if you have any 😁 Am/Dsusish were only chords played, I did the drumming so its rougly 4/4 roughly probably 90bpm 😁
Thanks for your comments on "Strato-FAWMing".
Hey Happy FAWMing!
Cheers, Jon! I'm really looking forward to it. 😀
Hey Jon, it's great to see you back again! I'm looking forward to your creations.
Thanks for the tip re: Soundcloud - I'll look into it. Cheers Greg
Cheers! I'm just up the road from you in Durham...thought I'd pop in and say "hello" 😀
Glad to see you here! It is a strange new world indeed. Maybe there will be a song about the empty trains, wondering where all the people have gone? Happy FAWMing!
Happy FAWMing, Jon.
Nice to meet you Jon! Hopefully more musicians can hang out together in real life again as soon as possible!
