My 7th FAWM. That is so insane to say.

I moved to Chicago 6 years ago Feb. 1st, and on that day I joined FAWM for the first time as well. I met a lot of great people out of the gate in Chicago from this site, and it really taught me how to cope with transition and change. I continue to do this to dump a years worth of thoughts into one lovely month.

For the newbs, things to note:

1. Post your skeletons. Don't feel like you have to have a fully produced song ready. This site is for the bones.
2. Write bad songs. They will lead to good ones.
3. Be constructive with compliments and criticism. And maybe save that part for March. You need time to write!

*Update: This month became busy with auditions and personal life troubles, so I only truly did 7 FAWM songs. In March, my plan is to get together with friends and write songs and post them there. I never wanted this to be a stressful thing. I want songwriting to be a thing that takes me away from stress.

    like your bio and advice, hope you had fun

    I can’t believe your voice. The timbral range is mind boggling and vox goals material. And your songwriting’s a match.

    FYI, your BandCamp and Twitter links are broken. At least in the case of BandCamp, it's due to a missing colon after https. Not sure why on Twitter.

    SoundCloud also. Seems you changed your name (I've had this problem before), which changes the link.
    Bad link:

    Glad I found you here on FAWM. Killer concert on Thursday night, and enjoyed your teaching at NSUS, too! Thanks for sticking in Chicago.

  • @raygunnsraygun Feb 2

    These first two songs are right out of the top FAWM drawer. Very well done.

    Excellent advice, thank you! (This is my first FAWM.) Looking forward to hearing your songs @lizchids. 😀
