Influences: Every song I ever heard that was lyric-driven
This will be easy - if I write it and you like it, you can use it.
Maybe this is a good sign, that I'm actually updating my profile page more than 2 weeks before our official FAWM 2019 party begins!
For those who don't know me... I'm not a musician, but I can hum a tune and write a story.
For those who DO know me... I have no idea why, after all these years, I still haven't learned how to play guitar!
Looking forward to seeing and hearing and working with all my friends, new and old.
Wishing you all well,

I really appreciate your comment on “I Am Not a Liar.” That lyric did feel special coming into view during the skirmish. The constraints of topic and time did help, and 15 minutes in I felt a strong emotion that guided me the rest of the way, including making the music. Experience helped, too, in avoiding over-writing, as I used to do. Cheers
You're welcome sir. Have a great FAWM!
God I've just realised in all the scramble I haven't looked in! (And thank you for the sweet comment on Near Paradise which has gotten me off my backside to say "hello"). Far too late here, I'll look in in the morning. or rather, later in the morning!
Thank you so much for the kind comment on Once I was loved. Yeah that might be considered a love song but I do tend to like anoimals better than people haha
Thanks for your comments John, much appreciated!
Thank you John. I'm so glad you enjoyed Oh Alpaca!
Files emailed. Thanks John.
Thank you for your comments on "Riffin' In D" and "Pop My Socks"...feel free to download (I will check that it is downloadable). If you need higher quality than MP#, let me know...some lyrics on either would be great. Thank you.
Fantastic! Really appreciate that license to make the lyric fit the melody. As a writer of lyrics and music, that’s an essential element of the process, allowing lyrics and music to refine one another. Both are detrimented without the allowance of that exchange. I’m always fearful a lyricist is going to say “you changed my lyrics!” Thankfully that hasn’t really happened yet. Thanks very much for the advice re:posting a new song for the lyrics with music. Fits with my experience and was a very helpful confirmation.
Thanks for your kind words John! Looks like we agree on that ...
Thanks. Glad you like. Appreciated your kind words.
All the best, Wade
Ok. Usually my method is to simply pay it back/forward when someone comments on a song, but seeing your comment on "Blood on the Water," I have to respond directly. Thanks so much for your very kind words. I really appreciate it, and, in particular, the lyrical compliments from a lyricist.
Hi John, just checking in with you to let you know I haven't forgotten our collab. I should have something up this weekend 😀
Thank you for your kind words on "Into the Dark". It's great when something that means a lot to me resonates with others.
Too late here mate we are already in Summer
Thanks for the note!
Thanks for the feedback on my “Disconnect” song! What a nice compliment.
Thx for the comment John, happy Fawming!
I'll be watching you, John. 😀
Hi John. good to see you back, Looking forward to hearing your february songs.
You too John. Have a good one
Im not so sure mate. I know heat sounds good when you are cold but day after day pushing the high 90s 100 in your scale is a bit much. Usually its great here up the mountain but not this year!
Hiya mate. Good to see you here. Johns rule!
Hi John!!! Great to hear from you! Looking forward to another FAWM! Let’s make it the best yet!
Hey John! Wishing you a fruitful FAWM 2019!
Happy FAWMing! Looking forward to your work!
Hey there John! Happy FAWN 2019! Can't wait to see what we come up with! Gotta say I still listen toi Last Roundup and love it!
Hi John, my new favourite collab lyricist! Let's have a great Fawm, shall we. 😀
Hi John, thanks for popping by and saying hello. As always, no plan but I may adopt one of your lyrics if time allows and inspiration strikes. Have a good February
Howdy, OST. Let's do this.
