Ah FAWM 2021. Are you a blessing not in disguise??
Welcome to a very different Karlos FAWM. Usually i am sat in a hammock in Thailand counting the days until feb 1st with iphone at the ready. Well there's positives to not doing that. Full studio, Winter english sunshine (ahem) and not spending two days getting lost on a flight over to Asia.
So seeing as I have been locked down in Merry Old England for 9 months now (longest in my post school teaching life) I have been writing, recording continuously and have released and album with another one ready to go.
Was worried my juices may be dry for FAWM but surely not 😉
I also been doing more gigs than ever online from my barn balcony in lockdown and inside (its chilly these days). Some are uploaded to youtube but its been so much fun since working out how to put logic through the live stream.
Anyway this year i am also life coach training alongside zoom music lesson teaching so will be pretty full on so am throwing myself out there as a Major collaborator this year. I may well not reach the magical 14 this year but do want to collaborate as much as poss.
So if you need a melody writing with words or not , or is you have a melody and you need music, or if you have ideas you want to throw at me to form a tune, then i am you merry freezing cold england man.
Lots to contemplate this year, but thank god we have music to keep ourselves on a positive , uplifting track.
HUGE HUGS to you all as i am feckin missing them more than most things at the moment
Album released last month link is herehttps://thekarloskollective.bandcamp.com/album/forever-anicca
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
hello Dear! OH I am so happy to see you. Lets rock this years FAWM:)
Likewise! Happy FAWMing in 2021
Hi, have a good (cold wintery misty) one! collab?
Hey Karl. Looking forward to your toons this year.
have a great FAWM buddy!!!
Hey! Welcome back. Some Derbyshire soundscapes this year then? 😀 I’m looking forward to FAWM as being locked in a room for a month in Feb is quite normal! Looking forward to your songs as always. Have a great month!
Thank you, thank you for your warm greeting... so great to see you, here, too! Looking forward to hearing your songs!
Hi Karlos. Great to see you back too. Listening to your BandCamp album "Forever Anicca" right now. Impressive. "Rain" is great, but I especially like "Once There Was a Way". I'm pumped now to start FAWMing.
Great to hear from you, friend. I'd love to hurl some lyrics your way to be elevated musically! Unlike you, I have had a dry pandemic in terms of songwriting, though I've bumped up my guitaring and done lots of reading and thinking. I hope the songs will come when I focus time and attention on them. Cheers!
Wow great offer on the collab. I would like to try a collab depending on your time allotment. I have a finished song with no melody or lyrics..HELP ME.!
Bummer on having to stay in UK..hopefully by Jan 2022 all will be better.
Karl, yeah once the bell's been rung by all means give me the dirty lowdown on what you have in mind.
hey! Let us collab!
Looking forward to letting the muses take us where they will.
Have a beautiful FAWM. So great to reconnect!
Karl my man! Looking forward to hear some more of these beautiful tunes of yours! Have a great creative FAWM!
Careful what you wish for! I'm not that great at execution, but I love to throw ideas at people 😀
You as well. Here's to another great Fawm!
Karl! My brother from another mother! Can't wait to see what magic you bring to FAWM this year! Over here I am doing a happy dance because we have an adult president now! So my songs might be a little happy too!
Holaaaaaaa! Oh yeah I hear you, predictions are a bad idea for FAWM, anything can happen - that's the beauty of it!
Yes, I am super bummed that you are not getting your annual recharge trip, but very happy to have the chance to do more collabs. Welcome back and it is wonderful to be here with you!! 😀
Hey buddy! Yes - let’s get together once this has passed. Not seen you in an age! Looking forward to your output as always 😊 x
Yes! Let's do this.
HELLOS to you!! Great to see you and I’m looking forward to hearing your music again this year. Collaboration with you again? Of course!! I have no idea what I will do this year, but I never know. No Thailand? That is a bummer, but these are not the times for travel. We are certainly kindred spirits with travel, so I’m sure you are as bummed as we are. We will be talking. Have a great fawm!
Hahaha EXCELLENT thievery Karl 😃 Saw you mentioned your net was down 😭 tell them to pull their finger out
You’re in? Update your damn profile lad! IT’S SOON! 😁
