2021 is my 4th FAWM and I’ve been looking forward to it. I’ll be out of town at various points throughout the month, and being away from my little home studio and instruments will force me to be a bit creative with my songwriting and music making. I'll be employing Garageband on my phone as an ultra-portable studio, which I dabbled in last FAWM. At home, I will be using Reaper for mixing and production.
Since last FAWM, I released a solo album, including one FAWM song. The album is called “Science In Our Heads” and can be found on my Bandcamp page here: https://kevinmasonmusic.bandcamp.com/album/science-in-our-heads

I'm still catching up on sending thank you notes for your having stopped by my song "When it Snows". I am so touched by the support and comments this song has gotten. I played this at a zoom open mic even though it's not quite polished and it was well received. I will be back in touch if I get the demo up in case anyone is around to listen. Your time and support mean so much to me and I really appreciate your having taken time for me, kevin.
Thanks for the listen!
Well glad you found it and it wasn't some big issue, shame though because that was a really great take and it will forever bother you even if nobody else even notices hahah. I probably wouldn't of especially on a first listen if it wasn't pointed out.
Yeah that was only thing I could immediately think of. As any annoying lamps or other electrical interference usually has its own tone I know pretty well from recording in a barn 🤣, but it could be something like that as well, maybe even just a loose connection on something or another I have pedals that make weird noises if on a daisy chain if not fully connected, but connected enough they'll power up. You'll find it!
Thanks for the kind words on “Sandcastles”!
Thanks for stopping by & listening to that skirmish track. Yeah, it's a beast - so feel free to come back when you have more time. That's why I put the Warning on it. 😁
See You In The Shadows…
Thank you for your kind and insightful comment on 'Sandcastles', please come back and check the music for it out sometime. might not be till tomorrow as its freezing here!
I appreciate your kind words! And good ear! That is a kazoo in my kazoo debut 😊
Thank you for the kind words on " Right Inside Our Door".
Thanks for the comment, and I do have to tell you the furry friend is named Banjo.
Thank you for the feedback on my Snow interpretation! I will be listening to the others later this afternoon when I get done with my other stuff!!
hey Kevin, thanks for checking out "Growing Up" and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it a lot. Looking forward to what you come up with next 😀
Hey Kevin! No better time than now to make some music!
Hey Kevin! 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.
