FAWM 2021

Let's do this! Excited to be back in full force. This year I'm helping my buddy @evanlutz create his first music album. He's a FAWM virgin and we'll be looking for some of my fav FAWMers, and maybe a few new musician friends, to help us fill out our upcoming songs that will start out mostly as guitar and lyrics. We may add the ukulele since we're both learning it. I'm also psyched to listen to FAWM original music all month and bust a few Zongs

FAWM 2020

I'm getting a late start, but I'm back. Just enough free time for a few songs, but I'll be listening.

FAWM 2017

This is going to be a relaxed year for me. I don't have any special goals or projects in the works, so I hope to be able to listen in to my fav FAWMers, and maybe meet some new ones. As a writer, my contribution has always been lyrics. If you need words for your music, let me know, as I am switching gears from creating companion songs for my prose (essays, short stories, novels, and memoir), to helping others on your projects.

Cheers, Mark

FAWM 2016

Welcome FAWM friends. I think this is my 7th or 8th year (Debs will let me know for sure, she counts better than I do). I do know this is my second Leap FAWM. Onward to 14 ½!

Thanks to so many of you who brought the 41 original companion songs to life for my memoir: 13,760 Feet—My Personal Hole in the Sky. That 348-page book is out on Amazon in print and Kindle formats, and the 15-hour audiobook (with snippets from the companion songs infused into the story) is available on All 41 original songs are also on my website:

This year I am collaborating on songs to accompany my upcoming articles in Airways magazine. I usually tie my lyrics into some form of short story, essay, or article when I can.

I also plan to listen to the FAWM jukebox well past February, so be sure to mark your favorites so I can find them.

Cheers, Mark
