Influences: I have a kind of folk-pop sensibility so artists like Ed Sheeran and Maggie Rogers are currently strong influences. I appreciate songs with strong lyrics and a little bit of poetry to them.
In the year 2021, if man is still alive, if woman can survive, they may FAWM!
Me too! Year 13. You may have heard about my dust-up with the Tonight Show. Thanks to everyone here for the incredible support! Did they learn their lesson? No. Link to the story: https://www.worcestermag.com/story/news/2020/12/06/tonight-show-sta...
I will get to 14. I make this promise to myself and I will keep it. I expect I will do more listening early on this time so I can be inspired.
I have plans to record a new album starting in April to be titled Drifting To The Right. Also working on a screenplay project which is deepening my appreciation for classical piano. Hoping this will be a good year and from 2020, nowhere to go but up!

Thanks for listening to my songs "Start Walking in Your Dreams" and "Amelia", I appreciate it!!
Omg I was just thinking of you, because it felt like I hadn't seen much of you over the course of the month so I came to your page and D'OH!! it turns out somehow I hadn't watchlisted you before now!! So, my sincere and humble apologies for that. Now that I know you're here, I'll add you to my March ketchup list 😀
i never got out to JP during those years. i did some recording at Wellspring Studio in 87 and played once a montth at christophers on porter square for a couple years before taking over the bookcellar cafe across the strreet. .i worked at the furniture store on green street in 82 that was the last i saw of JP. who were your favorite acts during the years you had the coffeehouse there?
I appreciate the kind words on my tune! This FAWM has been a wonderful opportunity to follow the muse wherever she wants to take me. Also I just read your news article - what a wild story! Glad it didn't stop you from sharing your music
Thank you for commenting! I hope you get to go to Puerto Rico, it really is beautiful.
Thanks for the comment on my 3-note challenge song.
Hi @mikegtz thanks for the comment on Its Not Worth It (for a selfie). It was initially inspired by the following article but I think it’s grown into more of an allegory for “don’t be so f**ing shallow!!” - something I find myself thinking quite a lot. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/newsbeat-4574...
Thanks for the comment on my slothcore track 😀
Congrats on your win!
Great tunes, Michael!!
Thanks Michael, Adam set this one up for me like a big slow pitch. It was really fun to come up with and perform the lyrics on this. 😀
Hi Michael, thanks so much for your kind comments on my collaboration with Kristi on Oh Emily Rose.
Hi Michael, thanks for your comments on "Going Through the Motions", much appreciated. I will try the faster tempo and an instrumental section. Much obliged!
Hey, title 'Nine times' is as significant as life itself, very unpredictable and spontaneous 😀 Have a good day!
Hello! I’m willing to try to work on your song here. Do you have a chord progression for it yet? 😆
Hey there! Thank you for listening to Aquarius! It was such a fun solo to work on. ❤️ Mixolydian is fun!
Hi Michael, please don't worry, it happens to all of us. The button is in the place where it's too easy to click on. Thank you for fixing it though.
I have the same problem when I log on my bank account and I want to log out, instead I often click on help as the buttons are near. Have a nice evening.
Thanks for the additional collab invitation, but I think I'd better do the ones I've already committed to first! Been out of commission all week but planning to dive in as soon as my son takes off for work...
Yes! A heartato. Or poteart?
Thanks for the comment on my week 2 challenge song!
I know of you. Because of you, I joined FAWM. I think it wasn’t cool of them to do, reading that article. It would seem everyone else in that segment legit had a weird angle, while you were probably found last minute and added in the middle. I think you should get back by becoming performing on his show with a nice pop hit (possibly a cringe thing to say, but it would most likely get you there) and get show him.
I hail from Chicago. Thanks for writing me.
Hi Mike! Thanks for the listen and nice comment. I’ve been meaning to tell you. Mentioned the tonight show thing to my daughter. (20). Showed her how you really sounded in bicycle to Somalia. She immediately downloaded it and put it on her playlist. Her friend heard it and put it in hers. Then my youngest (17) heard it and put it on hers. Your songs are very popular ! I confess that still have a soft spot for the albino and the transvestite, even though it’s an oldie 😀
Hey Mike - nice to see you!
HI THERE! Happy FAWM to ya!
Thank *you* 😀
Shall I add you as a collaborator and let you add the link to the track?
Come by anytime! we can wave at each other across the banks of snow
Yes, you can add music to "Fall," if you like. 😀
Thanks for the comment on my zoom song - zoom is better than nothing, but ...
Thanks for the comment and the listen! Hopefully we'll see eachother at the finish line!
Hey Mike! Thanks for the listen and comment on There is Good! Much appreciated and so good to see you!
Thanks Mike! Good to see you here, too. I hope you have a wonderfully cathartic and fulfilling FAWM.
Hey Mike, old friend. Good to see you again. You will make it to 14, and you're off to a great start!
Thank you for your thoughts on “Champagne & Carmenere.” You’re right - I think some warm clarinet tones would flesh out the arrangement very nicely. Thank you for the suggestion!
welcome back! (and hope you like that song I mentioned!) you're off to a great start, and good luck with the upcoming album stuff!
Hey Mike! Happy FAWM! 😀
hey! man that ordeal with the tonight show is crazy eh? totally 110% with you on that one bud; cheers to us amateurs!
Hi there! 😀
Hey Michael! 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 minute/hour/day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a minute/hour/day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
Happy FAWMing Michael, I am looking forward to hearing your creations!!
Hi Mike, looking forward to hearing your FAWM 2021 songs!
