Thank you so much for your kind comment on my song! Il have to look up Bruce hornsby
thank you jamkar, for encouraging me to stay as i am..or to continue in the way i am becoming. ive had two major opportunities to change and resisted each one.
Hey Mike, thanks for your visit to my personal favorite and your kind words!
Thank you for the kind words about my song Don't Get Caught. Much appreciated.
Thanks for the MFP comment ... I had never heard of Jimmy Spheeris, so I checked him out. "I am the Mercury" is the exact sound I'm shooting for! Alternate tunings, dreamy vocals, etc. Thanks!
Thanks so much for commenting on Two Rivers Too Cross.
You're more than welcome...looks like you had a great month! Thank you for returning the favour 😀
Thanks for listening to my collab song "Who We Really Are"!
Good morning. Thanks for stopping by and listening to my late entries into the FAWM 2020 fun 😀
That would be so cool! Go to town with whatever pleases you.
Hi Mike! Yes, by all means and thank you. I’m eager to see what you will make from them. I know my phrasing is little different from what might be usual, and what I’ve fit in there might not seem to scan to others, so you can adjust if needed.
Mike - I'm conscious that I haven't been by to give your stuff a listen recently. I will remedy that!
thats good enough reason for david goodis
Thanks so much for your kind comment on “The Hummingbirds Return”! All those major 7th chords do give it a 70s vibe, don’t they? I didn’t remember “Magnolia” until I went back to listen, but it is indeed a lovely, lovely song.
Ha ha the wonders of being back in my little studio instead of being in a hammock 😉
Thank you so much for the comment on my and cynthia's collab and i will take it as a massive compliment that you think my vocals sound like Cynthia singing 😉 . Its ok i am rather feminine with my vocality on occassions 😉 Still can't spell though!!
Yes definitely 😀
I know but it works so well with the message of the lyric, I love them unexpected touches sometimes 😀 the whole thing sounds great tho, really like what you’ve done with it!!
Thanks for setting what do you do to music. It sounds really great!! Love how you lingered on the ‘do’s like a cry for help, and your voice sounded fab! The crackle in the recording also added character, almost like the vocal was muffled from water 😀
It was a pleasure Mike.
Thank you so much for that gorgeous version of my lyrics <3 wonderfull
Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean"!
Mike, I would be very happy to have you add music to my "million" lyric!
!! Thank you for that wonderful comment, Mike.
Glad you liked the song - I was secretly hoping this one would get music so it would be an honour. You have a great voice and sense of melody so I know it’s in good hands. Also I’m always happy for people to tweak my words / add personal touches as that’s what collaborating is all about 😀
Hi Mike thank for the kind comments. Good luck.
You are very welcome to do so <3
thanks for commenting on santo cello. it was fun to record, though a bit frustrating, with computer problems.
keep having fun!
Thank you for tour kind Words in mine and Cindys collab
Aww. Thank you so much, Mike. 😊
Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment on When the Night Falls. If you'd like to work out some keys to add, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
Thank you Mike. Sadly not Roland. I'm afraid one of my students pushed it down by mistake and not right away but soon after that 8 notes stopped playing. I have a tiny keyboard Akai MPK mini which I then adjust via fl studio tweaking the sounds and sometimes adding the notes in other octaves as it has a tiny range of notes from C3 till C5. It does have some pads but I prefer using the notes. The keys are tiny. Anyway, it is fun to create music with it and of course from time to time I use my trusty upright piano. Thank you for your support.
Thank you Mike 😀
Thanks for commenting, much appreciated! It was particularly short, but a real life typical delivery would have taken hours 😂
Thank you for your lovely comment on 'High Road, Low Road', Mike. 😀
Thanks for your kind comment on "Fork in the Road." 😀
Hi Mike, have a good FAWM!

Hey Mike. Yeah, let's do this again!
Have an amazing adventure...I’m curious about the 12 bar blues challenge...so I will be checking in on that luv Der Blues.
I'm going do that 12 bar blues challenge too. Might even pull out the cigar box guitar for it. See you there!
Hi Mike! 😀
Thank you. Looking forward to hearing what you get up to, too! 😀
Hi Michael. Yes, my grandfather's fur hat is very warm. I can feel it melting my brain a bit. But luckily for me, music comes from the heart. Have a great Fawm.
Hi, happy FAWM!! Can't wait to hear ya 😀
Hey, looking forward to hearing songs again this year!

can't wait to hear what you do this year! Would you be interested in collaborating again? I think it's starting to become tradition for us each year! 😝
Hi Mike! Ready for another Leap FAWM?
Hi Mike! Hope things are going well with you.
Wishing you the same, Mike! A tailor-made, custom version of FAWM for this year’s you! 😊
Bring on the FAWM!! WHooohOOooO! Have a great one, Mike! 😀
Thanks, my friend. Turned out I had nasal/sinus polyps, which I had removed endoscopically last fall. Hoping they won't come back; things are good now.
Welcome back, Jamkar. And please accept my apology for disappearing from 50/90 without recording the vocal for you and Maddie. I was getting recurrent sinus infections that affected my voice. But I should have let you know. Sorry.
have the best FAWM this year!
Yes! That January feeling of an approaching FAWM...
Hey Michael, here we go ........
Do you have a favorite photo that I can use for some inspiration for the cover art?
