Artist Bio

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,
John

  • @acromie  6 weeks

    Ha! Thanks for your comment on Everybody Poops. I'm glad someone really enjoyed it. It was too good not to post, and I hope to flesh it out a little more over time.

  • @yarimurray  6 weeks

    Thanks for listening to Here We Go Again and your comments. I enjoy your lyrics and the collaborations have been wonderful. Perhaps we can collaborate one of these FAWMs.

  • @haim  7 weeks

    Hi, thanks for your kind comment, I appreciate it. By the way, I just saw now that you song "just one regret" - the music is not by you and I made a long comment about it, but I still think it's a great song, you did it amazingly, lyrics, singing, everything .. Shapo.

  • @andrewjtaylor  7 weeks

    Congrats on making it to 14+! Right now that's only 10% of FAWMers.

  • @jwhanberry  7 weeks

    Thanks for commenting on "Good Things". I'm interested to know what reminds you of Randy Newman. Voice, lyrics or ??? I saw a documentary recently about the film music Newmans. He comes from quite a line. Don't want to hurt no kangaroos. 😉

  • @dreamscuba  7 weeks

    Thank you for the comments on "Now You Are Gone"....your feedback is very kind...much appreciated.

  • @tiller2  Feb 14

    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

  • @andybalham Feb 14

    You're welcome sir. Have a great FAWM!

  • @timfatchen  Feb 13

    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!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 13

    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

  • @tjeff  Feb 13

    Thanks for your comments John, much appreciated!

  • @acromie  Feb 12

    Thank you John. I'm so glad you enjoyed Oh Alpaca!

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 10

    Files emailed. Thanks John.

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 10

    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.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 9

    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.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 9

    Thanks for your kind words John! Looks like we agree on that ...

  • @wwalbrun Feb 9

    Thanks. Glad you like. Appreciated your kind words.
    All the best, Wade

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 9

    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.

  • @billysea  Feb 8

    Hi John, just checking in with you to let you know I haven't forgotten our collab. I should have something up this weekend 😀

  • @wacha  Feb 3

    Thank you for your kind words on "Into the Dark". It's great when something that means a lot to me resonates with others.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 3

    Too late here mate we are already in Summer

  • @suziewithaz  Feb 2

    Thanks for the note!

  • @leomozi  Feb 2

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2

    3 kids. Hence 1 plus 1 is two... and later makes 5. (See: @metalfootlings)

  • @nuj4x Jan 23

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 22

    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!

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 19

    Hiya mate. Good to see you here. Johns rule!

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 19

    Hi John, my new favourite collab lyricist! Let's have a great Fawm, shall we. 😀

  • @oddbod  Jan 15

    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

  • @tcelliott  Jan 15
