Artist Bio

Great to be back on the FAWM train... are we on the FAWM train this year?

The answer is yes. I think... or at least trying to. Time is short and this year most songs are quick sketches rather than the drawn out sketches we normally produce.

Not sure how many FAWMs we've done so far (okay, I do know it's 11, we had a little break from 2016-19) but we cam back last year and wrote lots but didn't manage to finish all of the demos. Those poor songs languishing without their true forms!

Anyway, we're taking different approaches to song production, so we'll see how it all turns out and whether we get a coherent selection of tunes from this year.

One of us got too big for his britches and made a solo record. Listen to it here if you want diluted PB: https://spanishblacksunset.bandcamp.com/releases

    Hello. Hope March is going well for you.

    The singer that Epilogue reminded me of was Matt Berninger of The National. Something in the rhythm of the delivery I think. I love The National, possibly more than any current band, so I consider this the highest of praise. However, not everyone might agree... Hopefully taken in the complimentary way intended!

    Thanks for checking out benylin junkie and for the great tips...I think youโ€™re right about dropping things out after the solo...Iโ€™ll revisit it...thanks for taking the time to help ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @emkaydeebee  4 weeks

    Hey! Thanks so much for the kind comments on some of my songs, including the Welsh one! So glad you enjoyed them!

  • @klaus 5 weeks

    Hi Plushbaby. Thanks for the kind comments and for the recommendation. Sorry, this took so long.

  • @kristi  6 weeks

    Thanks for your nice comments and for sharing my collab, Our Hearts Wandered Away on the recommendation thread! Klaus really turned my lyric into a cool song!

  • @davidtaro  6 weeks

    Hi there. Big thanks for taking the time to listen and comment guys! Really appreciated. In answer to your question, yes I played it to my son. He danced. I felt a tremendous sense of vindication. Then, about 30 seconds in, he lost interest entirely, and a tiny bit of my soul died ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Thanks for your comment on "Dont tell me if it hurts". I'm glad you enjoyed that song and the liner notes. I like your idea beeing the outro of a movie. So it will be the last one on my FAWM album when I get all these collabs recorded and mastered!
    I don't think we will make it until Easter. So this song is definitely for my Soundcloud account later the year.
    It's such a pity that my FAWM will close without finished versions. It is the trouble of beeing Songwriter, Composer, Producer but not a good instrumentalist at all. I am dependent on collaborations. I promised not to upload MIDI-like tracks of pop and rock music as these only show my skills of composition and arrangement and not of production and master. Some songs never finish because they are lacking of guitars and vocals - you cannot achieve a proper sound with software ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions! I really appreciate your feedback!

  • @katestantonsings 6 weeks

    Your liner notes are fascinating. Iโ€™ve listened to 3 of your songs in a row, and find myself intrigued by your creative process. You clearly put a lot of thought into your songwriting. Respect! #tit4tat

  • @davidtaro  6 weeks

    Hi guys. Apologies I didnโ€™t stumble across your stuff during Feb, but glad I have now - big fan of what youโ€™ve done here. Look forward to listening in real time next year ๐Ÿ‘

  • @vomvorton  6 weeks

    Haha I love a rambling comment! Really I should record a version of that song on the actual four track now that time pressure is off, then compare the two...

    But I've forgotten how to play it already

  • @headfirstonly  6 weeks

    "120-second thoughts" only has three guitar layers, which is minimalist for me:
    1. the super-bright glassy chords
    2. the occasional rock power chords
    3. the solo

    And that's it!

  • @nadine 6 weeks

    Thanks for your comments on "Promise". Let's see how the final song will turn out. I haven't thought about Belinda Carlisle, but you're right - This kind of voice would also fit in. Somehow I thought about a lower soft male voice.

  • @audrey  6 weeks

    Thank you for the kind words about "No Hurry". I appreciate them.

  • @gb9  7 weeks

    @plushbaby congratulations of the trophy.
    Thank you for your appreciation and kind comments on 'How Could You' Regarding the question on musical motif, I really have not much knowledge of music to answer that..... Sorry ๐Ÿ˜ž But thanks again for the appreciation and for busting that zong ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @max 7 weeks

    Thanks for the Plush visit on my soundboard. I'm skipping this year and that's because I have a lot of fun doing other things at the moment.
    See you PB's next year perhaps ...perhaps....perhaps.

  • @n1742  7 weeks

    Thanks for your kind words about Sing your Song. Marvellous solo from Rob. Great idea about starting with the chorus vocal. Iโ€™ll try to get that done.

    RE: Radio - Hey! thank you so much for taking the time to listen and leave a comment on my track! Your feedback is super constructive and very helpful! I appreciate you! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @jdschramm  8 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words on "Follow" - glad you liked it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @mychaleg 8 weeks

    Hey couple words (spoilers) for the Frame Data song. It's going to have metal music but with Lennon/McCartney vocals. Then around the part you were thinking the music shifts and gets more folksy/psychedelic. The vocals turn in full on metal growl with trippy mellowish vibes from the music hahah I hope to pull it off, I see the vision. Takes time! Thanks, again

  • @cblack 8 weeks

    Thanks for the comment! Glad you liked it!

    Strangely enough, George R. R. Martin was NOT the inspiration. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dragondreams  8 weeks

    You are very kind! And thank you for your thoughtful comments. I really appreciate it. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @misterd 8 weeks

    Thanks so much for your inspiring and encouraging words on my song Bolin Bolin Billabong ! I appreciate it a lot . Take care . Cheers

  • @caitlin Feb 20

    Thanks for swinging by and sharing your thoughts on Ready Steady Go! I'm so happy to know my lyrics resonated with you. And I can't believe this is your 11th FAWM! I'm a newbie fawmling here.

  • @raquelita11 Feb 19

    Thanks for your kind comments on "I'm Gonna Love You Enough". I really appreicate it. That ending chord was an +6th and I thought it worked nicely, I'm glad that you noticed it!

  • @lizbrinker  Feb 19

    Well, @plushbaby , thanks for making an exception for The Major And The Minor. The two lines you mentioned in the bridge have two of my four examples of word painting. Did you get my musical jokes? (She asked, needily...)

  • @vomvorton  Feb 18

    Like ships in the night ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @pippa  Feb 18

    You said you can imagine my tune accompanying footage of small birds playing in some kind of wildlife documentary for children. You know, that never occurred to me, and you're right, I can see that too! Nice thought... thanks for that.

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 18

    Thanks for your kind comments on Pretending.

    I also agonised over the bass guitar level but came to the same conclusion you did. Being the bassist in question that's never an easy call.

  • @axl Feb 14

    Great to see you're back, fellow old-school FAWMers! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @nateger Feb 12

    I appreciate the kind words on my tune! I can't say for certain but I'm 99% sure that sheep have friends too

  • @vomvorton  Feb 11

    Hey Plushbabes! Good to see you too, looking forward to checking out your new stuff!

  • @bitshred  Feb 11

    Hey thanks so much for the listen and comment on my tune Wolf's Moon. I'm playing my Fender Jazzmaster, or Gibson Les Paul through a Strymon Iridium. Couple of pedals in front.

  • @regis  Feb 11

    "Camel View" is from a Boba Fett mailaway action figure ad -https://twitter.com/pulplibrarian/status/899539773097885696
    The song was originally going to be about how even he didn't know what it did (What the hell is a camel view/I don't know, but neither do you), but I opted to get a bit more abstract and pair it with my fuzzed out bassline. I was going for an I Love You Airlines vibe, but Sebadoh is cool with me!

  • @regis  Feb 11

    Glad to see you're back this year! Happy FAWMing!
