Artist Bio

Influences:   FAWMers

Just for fun & for the memories I'm trying to recall, in roughly chronological order from year to year, all the FAWMers I've been so lucky and honored to have collab'd with in my thus far five (actually, more like four) years of FAWM. (I might've missed a few names but it'll come back to me as I keep thinking) Thank you all so much:

almost @timfatchen (for "The Road is So Long" but there wasn't enough time!)
@easyshed (lol)


FEB. 20 update: I think I might have to bow out here, friends. I fell last week, hit my head on ice and got a concussion. It was minor but I'm still having symptoms and the 2nd week is actually WORSE than the 1st (dizziness, headaches) and the computer screen only makes it worse.


    Leave a message. Log in to FAWM or sign up first!

    @popmythology thanks for the comment on Money from the Sparks, I particularly enjoyed that one. I like using the muse tools, it takes some of the creative pressure off from spinning out of the air to more of an arranging and fitting within constraints mode, which I like. Let me know if you have any particular lyric (or lyrics) you'd like to bring to life, I set up a few placeholder songs for the march quiet time, since I was fairly inactive during Feb. Hope your FAWM went well! EDIT forgot to mention, the vocal is all me, but I have heard before that my falsetto sounds like a different person, so there's that.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 28

    Thanks for enjoying my Swing song.

  • @sapient  Feb 28

    I got the samples from EasyShed's own videos on YouTube. How nice of them to have material for us FAWMers to work with ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • @caterwauler  Feb 22

    Really sorry about the concussion. I hope you feel better, sending you warm hugs. <3

  • @elesimo  Feb 19

    Daniel, do you mind if try to add some vocals to https://fawm.org/songs/94979/? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @candle  Feb 18

    I know, I don't think I've ever had this many songs done during FAWM, never mind at this point in the month! It's crazy!

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 15

    It was good to see your name on my site! Iโ€™m not surprised I sounded different. Normally Iโ€™d record the instrumental alone and then add the vocal. That lets me sing directly into the microphone instead of being farther away from it like I was in this song. I only had a few moments today, and no doubt that will be the rule going forward too! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @devin  Feb 12

    Thanks for dropping by!

    My involvement this year has been a day and a half at home in the studio, and then listening while driving all over. I shall take a peak at your lyrics soon, perhaps from the cozy glow of the next airport.

    Or maybe we collab from scratch on "They Shall Overrun Us!" โ€ฆ a plaintive cry about where the breeding is happening.

    I have a front row seat for the Dumb F song... my 17 year old nephew figured out how to lose his job at McDonalds, get someone pregnant, and find a way to never finish grade 10. He's a genius... especially at Fortnite, apparently.

  • @susyblue  Feb 11

    Hi Daniel, so nice to see you back and thank-you so much for your super insightful comments. I think you should canonised as the patron saint for fawm! I remember you not being in good health a few years ago, hope you are feeling better!

  • @thelowestbitter  Feb 9

    Haha half right, @gregthehero is my brother but @adforperu is no relation... as far as I know

  • @thelowestbitter  Feb 9

    Thanks, glad you liked it. Feel free to share away!

  • @thelowestbitter  Feb 8

    Hey! I turned Little Air Sailors into a song. Liked the lyrics a lot, thanks for letting me use them ๐Ÿ˜€ - https://fawm.org/songs/92328/

  • @emplate Feb 7

    Thanks for the comment on "Tuhat haavaa", man! Nice to see you here again! : ) And yay for us!

    I'll provide a translation to the lyrics when I have the time. Those translations you found seem to be fairly accurate, though! I actually started thinking that "A thousand wounds" sounds cooler than the "scars" I used : D I often feel like it's more honest to write in one's mother tongue, even though I do enjoy writing in English as well. It's also that writing in Finnish challenges myself more, 'cause then it all feels much more personal and I can't just hide behind cliches, if you get my drift : D

  • @zebraphone  Feb 6

    ๐Ÿ˜‰ the clickbait collab sure was fun! Yup, see you around ...

  • @zebraphone  Feb 6


  • @apertome  Feb 6

    Sure thing, I have definitely checked out your stuff in the past but I could not believe I was not "watching" you! not sure that happened, but I've corrected that error!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 6

    Hi Daniel! Yeah, of course. Here it is - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rS75...

  • @bithprod Feb 6

    Thank you for your kind words. Yeah, I know a bit about getting the ol' butt kicked.

  • @caterwauler  Feb 5

    Thank you for your comment!
    "I'm playing a very religiously devout paladin so this music feels perfect!" Haha, that's cool. Glad if I've inspired you. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @jorh Feb 5

    Haha thanks for you kind comments on my song, Iโ€™m glad my song won you over!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 4

    Hey Daniel! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks for the visit, the listen and the kind words!
    And thinking about you too. All I can do is send healing vibes your way, my friend.

  • @tesla3090  Feb 4

    It's funny you'd mention the special edition release. I actually dabbled a bit in modding TS back in the day, so I think that if this EP does come to fruition, I might release it with the files to mod the songs into the game.

    Also, a collab album would be sweet. Same Cage is one of my all time favorite FAWM songs. I've given myself a pretty full schedule this year for FAWM, so a whole album probably isn't doable, but I'd still probably have room for a collab if you're interested?

  • @axl  Feb 4

    Yes, this was Exactly why I wanted to do your neighbor song!! Iโ€™m amazed how many people seem to be able relate to the misophonia topic. Your comment might be the longest one Iโ€™ve ever gotten on a FAWM song. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Thank you so much Daniel... You are always such a ray of light in FAWM, and I really appreciate you taking the time to listen and give your thoughts. I certainly know the health struggles and I hope you can find a way to feel better. You are awesome and I'm glad you are here! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 3

    Thank you so much for your kind comment.

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2

    Good to see you here again.
    Admire your spirit, and hope the positivity of FAWM will be healing.
    You still have a record here....a legend!
    Thank you for nice comments on my MetaFAWM song. It is usually how I like to start

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 2

    I will jump in throughout the month but my hubby is taking more care so itโ€™s going to be in short bursts when I get some alone time. Great to see you here!!

  • @axl  Feb 2

    Hi Daniel, Glad to see you're here again. Sending some good thoughts your way..

  • @ductapeguy Feb 2

    Thanks for your comments on So Glad You're Here. The solo instrument is the same ukulele plugged into the same amp: different amp model, louder, more reverb.

  • @wobbiewobbit  Feb 2

    hi Daniel ๐Ÿ˜€ good to see you here again, thank you so much for thinking of me i am really flattered, however i must decline due to my allergy to all things religious ๐Ÿ˜‰ but please let me know if you think of me again, would love to do SOMETHING with you in principle.

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 2

    Thanks for the comment; yellow is the color of pus isn't it? The whole theme is all about the dead.

  • @zoom  Feb 2

    Hey ! Thanx for your comment!
    The article was this;


    This lead me to different articles about armour and different articles from the war and the british navy.

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 2

    Thanks for the nice comment on Hovering Mountain. Funny you should mention Bethel Music, I'm pretty familiar with their stuff being a worship leader but I didn't hear the similarity til you mentioned it. Some of it is the big snare sound they have made their signature sound. I like that you got that vibe from this song though, I'll take that!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 2

    That's not Lair of the White Worm...that's my gal menstruating ;-p

  • @candle  Feb 2

    Or perhaps I'm the one experimenting on you LOL. Thanks for the listens & the amazing comment, Daniel. It was a fun song to put together. Now I have to venture off into my next experiment. Happy listening, hope you get through your watchlist cue.

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @chandra83  Feb 1

    Allo! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @odilongreen  Jan 29

    Great to see you here too! I hope FAWM will provide a respite this year for you from the real world; I know we're all looking forward to your comments and contributions!

  • @tootoobee  Jan 29

    Hi Daniel, good to see you here ๐Ÿ˜€ Good luck!

  • @tcelliott  Jan 28

    Good to see you around, Daniel, even if you're not able to be here a lot. Let me know if you need anything.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 28

    Welcome back, Daniel!

  • @candle  Jan 27

    Daniel! Glad to see you back, my friend. I hope you are doing well & look forward to sharing the FAWM experience with you again this year. Take care.

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Jan 25

    Hey Daniel, good to see you around. Last year kicked my butt too man. Dealt with severe depression, anxiety and chronic insomnia that nearly ended my life. Had to make some major life adjustments after that and I'm handling everything much better now. (I think. LOL) Hope you can stick around, we love having you! Happy Fawming!

  • @sapient  Jan 25

    No matter what's going on, it's always so good to see you here ๐Ÿ˜

    Yes, an acoustic. I still play it like I play all my other guitars, so I'm not yet convinced it's going to make an awful lot of difference ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @caterwauler  Jan 25

    Hey Daniel, glad to see you back.
    Yes, it's been a while. Time tends to slip through our fingers, doesn't it?
    I can't guarantee my subliminal stimuli won't make you do some weird ritual. I'm not even sure what effect they will have on me. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Wishing you all the best for all the ordeals you're faced with. I hope this FAWM will bring you plenty of good things.

  • @ericdistad  Jan 23

    It's great to see you back Pop!

  • @tiller2  Jan 23

    Glad you're back, friend. Have a great fawm.

  • @zecoop  Jan 18

    Daniel !!! Awesome to be back here with you. ๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽถ

  • @timfatchen  Jan 18

    Daniel, even if you don't write much song, your commenting enthusiasm put a rocket up everyone and it's still going!

  • @elesimo  Jan 18

    I think you need to wait until February to start making songs! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sending you love. Miss you!

  • @tesla3090  Jan 14

    Coming back this year? Hope things are well.

  • @mdavisto  Jan 14

    Hi Daniel. Life is a crazy thing; hope to see you around this year.
