2020 is year twelve of FAWM for me! It's my favorite month of the year. This community is the best.

I (Michael Natrin) perform music full time as The Honey Badgers (@honeybadgerfolk), a singer-songwriter/folk/Americana duo with my wife Erin (@erinkelsey3). We're based in Delaware, but play all over the eastern USA. In 2019 we quit our jobs. It was a wild year - we played over 100 gigs, performed in 19 states, and covered over 22k miles while touring.

I'm a Professional Electrical Engineer who used to work in the power industry. I also enjoy homebrewing beer and working on our Sprinter campervan tour vehicle when I have time.

Please let me know what you think of my songs. Mainly recording vocals on a Shure SM7b and acoustic guitar with a Blue Bluebird, both through a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 and using Logic X [all when I have time/space]. It's often faster and easier to just use a trusty Zoom H4n.

    Haha! Thanks for reaching out! Yeah I grew up in Elkton just over the border from Newark in DE, actually. When I got out of the Army I just never moved back home and donโ€™t really intend to. Iโ€™m back that way often though. If youโ€™re in a band or something let me know!
