Influences: Lucinda Williams, Willie Dixon, Brandy Clark, Elvis Costello, Dwight Yoakam, Kasey Musgraves, Smokey Robinson--mostly people who tell a compelling story with few wasted words.
I’ve been doing FAWM and 50/90 since 2018, and attended two FAWMstocks in Delaware (I hope they can happen again!)
I don’t worry too much about hitting the final numbers, although I hit 14 last year for the first time.
My profile has long read “play serviceable guitar,” but this past year, 2020, I have been taking weekly guitar lessons and feel more comfortable with scales and playing up the neck. Let’s see if it shows.
As I’ve said before, I tend to write songs with realistic imagery and I generally prefer to keep ‘em short. Maybe this year I’ll fill them out with extended solos—but I doubt it.
I’ve always appreciated the on-line and special in-person friendships I’ve made in this group, and the positive attitude of so many creative people. It’s especially nice to have now until we’re all singing together again without our masks.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Happy 2021. I’m up for collabs again if you are up for it.
Yes FAWMstock was awesome and I'm hoping it happens again. Also I am going to check out the Tuesday night FAWM Zoom chats.
Hey there Mark, always good to see a fellow former semi-central Pennsylvanian here!
Mark - I’m going to try to make something happen, dude. You should use your ticket to get in the factory. 😁
Always good to see you friend!! I will come back around to see what you are creating!!
Hi Mark, Happy FAWMing!
Boo! Missed everyone at physical FAWMStock this year! No wine. No jello shots. No seeing groggy people first thing in the morning waiting for coffee. No socializing in person 24/7 for a weekend, but the memories of the two years of the FAWMStocks I got to go to will remain with me forever. Wishing you the best FAWM ever! 🤗🎵
