First time on FAWM.
Name is Zac, wrote my first song (lyrics/melody) somewhere between 10-12 years old. Used to keep a notebook of lyrics/poems as a kid. At 18 I got talked into recording a rap song and enjoyed the writing/recording process a ton. Since I didn't play any instruments and had an affinity for lyrics, it was an easy genre to get into. Early 20's I picked up my first guitar and started my transition back into the country music that sparked my passion for writing from day one.
I'm still much more comfortable as a lyricist than a guitar player, but my ability to write about my country roots and infuse a little of the hiphop elements I picked up in college fits pretty well into today's country music (I think anyway).
Still working on getting my first full country project finished up, so I'm hoping this contest will spark a gem to make the cut.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
