**FEB 11 UPDATE**
I'm a bit behind on where I should be to make 14, but this has been a tough week full of doctor visits for mystery pain. Also, spinning up on a new team at work has proved to be more intense than anticipated. I'm still doing the best I can, and still hoping and working toward 14. Let's see what we've got....
****

**FEB 4 UPDATE**
Iโ€™ve been spending more time listening to and commenting on other peopleโ€™s songs, and it seems to have lifted my spirits. That, and the fact that I was able to push thru to complete song #2.
****

**FEB 2 UPDATE**
The desire tor write music is dead. I just want to listen to my first song over and over again until it makes me fall asleep.

I'm back in Utah again, and it looks like I'm going to be here for a while. Life seems to have stabilized so I am hoping that I can make FAWM work this year. It's been a couple years since writing a new song for me, so please forgive the rust ๐Ÿ˜‰

************************
I grew up in Bountiful, UT. I love music and love writing it. I love horses, sing, and enjoy being eclectic (most of the time) I occasionally write songs about My Little Pony. This is my 11th season on FAWM (8th with this account)!

I favor my acoustic and folky alternative styles, but I always branch out into a few different directions during FAWM.

Can I just say that I wish I could do a collab with everyone? I feel like I learn so much from each of you and I love the friendships it creates! We'll see if I can handle it this month, though. Feel free to reach out, and I'll let you know if I have the bandwidth ๐Ÿ˜€

I look forward to FAWMing with you this month!

    tried to send you a email but it seems to have been lost in the void... oh noes!

    Dear Josh,

    Thank you for listening to my music and for your kind words! I may be just a marsupial but I do appreciate praise!

    Your pal,
    Opossum

    Mate i haven't written it yet, but i have a song idea and thought your vocals would be awesome with it. Like i say not even fully created yet but let me know if you'd fancy a stab, Of course once you've heard it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @tawalker Feb 12

    Many thanks for your kind comment on "Green Shoots" - always good to "meet" another Sufjan Stevens fan ๐Ÿ˜€ Funny you should mention that "Green Shoots" reminds you of Pikmin - my daughter says she reckons some of my instrumental pieces would work well as music for "Sims 4", which I take as quite a compliment!

    I know what you mean about keeping on schedule with FAWM, but don't worry about it - esp. as you may have other calls on your time. Hope you have some good news from the doctor, and as far as possible, be good to yourself! I'll take a listen to what you've done so far...

  • @resonut123 Feb 12

    Josh, thanks for the nice comment on my song: Then There is Rain

  • @bethdesombre  Feb 12

    Josh: Glad you liked Lucky. Feel free to have a go at whatever kind of arrangement you want to try whenever the opportunity arises.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 12

    have you go email matey i can send you some fiddling

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 12

    ha ha sat in my Dressing gown, delayed shower to pick bass up and jam away. i'll whizz a few things off but of course may depend on what guitar ends up like so you may want to get me to redo which is cool but i'll have a play. Man this is fun.

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 10

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 9

    Thank you for the lovely comments on The Coffee Song and Yeah Yeah Yeah! I credit a lot of what I know to you - about mixing and producing - all those streams I paid attention ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for being a friend and a supporter!

  • @willyviste Feb 8

    Hey, thank's for that kind comment on "Broken Pipeline". Much appreciated:)

  • @oheyitslauren Feb 8

    Just read your comment on my newest one and nodded fervently in agreement. I can't explain how it feels to know that's a shared experience, and "mister sunshine" is a funny and poignant description that really hit me, too. Thankful to share this FAWM space with you! Love your voice and songs so far and I look forward to more ๐Ÿ˜€ xo

  • @kristian  Feb 6

    Hey Josh! Wanna write a song together?

  • @valeriecox  Feb 5

    Thanks for commenting on my 10x10. I do enjoy those.

  • @beat  Feb 5

    Thx, glad you liked it.

  • @mikehex  Feb 5

    Thanks for the comment on Last Rights! Now that I think of it, the Mad Max villains do generally fit the mold I was describing (hedonistic idiots in the apocalypse).

  • @infilktion Feb 5

    I want to hear a My Little Pony song! Thank you for your comments on Han's Falcon!

  • @sheslin  Feb 5

    Thank you for your comment on You've Gone Away. I love your diverse list of artists. The first time I heard Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek I listened to it 10 times in a row. Nickel Creek is an all time favorite. I am getting to know Death Cab For Cutie! Thanks again.

  • @franniezest  Feb 5

    Thanks so much for the comment on my song!! Hope you catch yourself from all that fallin!

  • @gm7  Feb 5

    Thx for the kind words.

  • @haim  Feb 5

    My pleasure man. Still remember those days of 2016 I think, driving with my car and your song is on repeat and I was also having lots of romance mess back then so you got me threw some memories with a great song. Enjoy your fawm man, looking forward to see what kind of bazookas you're gonna use this time. Cheers!

  • @haim  Feb 5

    epic song man...

  • @haim  Feb 5

    oh yes! I've found it on your bandcamp! Sweeet. Cheers man, thanks for the great music.

  • @haim  Feb 5

    Hi man, I'm glad to see you back here. Hope all is well. Would mean a lot to me if you still have a link to your song "That's just what I need". I remember making a CD to my car on that fawm and your song was on it, one of my favorite songs of fawm history.. See you around man.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 2

    Hey - I go live on YouTube Wednesdays 10AM your time (Mountain) and in February I'm doing live-write/composition/arranging/producing musical stuff for an hour www.youtube.com/PearlManhattan - My twitch schedule is erratic at best, but I'll hit you up here when I know I'm going live. Probably be next week in the evenings. I also do an Autism Chat on Fridays at the same time (10 Mountain) and an Arts/Crafts show on Sundays 3PM Mountain. You're welcome, but I don't think either are your thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ See ya around!

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 31

    Josh!!! Hi friend!!! How are you? So awesome to hear from you! I'm alive! I hope you will bless us with some music! I'll be doing some live writing on my YouTube and my Twitch - I hope you will be doing some live writing too - Your music from previous FAWM's has been a comfort to me. I've missed you! Here's to our best year yet! We don't write because we can - we write because we must.

    Hey Josh! Just 1 week till FAWM!

    With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.

    "Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.

    But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in our contribution to culture.

    Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 22

    You're here! Yay!
