Originator of the Philadelphia Area Songwriters' Alliance (PASA) houseconcert series and Summer Songfest, I have performed and released CDs with Lessick & Lincoln (acoustic), and Men From When (electric). More recently also with Lessick & Lincoln & Cohen. This is my 12th year at FAWM. Over the years FAWM has become my primary mode of writing songs and many of the songs I've written here have been performed in concert and some have been recorded with my band Lessick & Lincoln & Cohen or covered by others. Here is my FAWM history through 2019:
2009- 17
2010- 18
2011- 19
2012- 20
2013- 17
2014- 18
2015- 19
2016- 20
2017- 21
2018- 22
2019- 40
Total- 272 songs written via FAWM
Thank you for listening.

My BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL (BHAG) for 2021 FAWM is to hit the 40 mark three years in a row. My more focused goal is to write at least a dozen songs in weird open tunings in the style of Nick Drake (not one of my influences until very recently), including at least a couple instrumentals on guitar. I also want to write a bunch of a-capella songs for my trio Lessick & Lincoln & Cohen, including some sea chanteys. And perhaps some Americana in the American Beauty, Workingman's Dead style. But I always seem to get sidetracked which whatever subconscious stuff comes into my head, and its been quite a year---so who knows. Wish me luck-- I will need it--I have a very busy full-time day job unlike last two years.

    Thanks, Rob for your good vibes on "I had a Dream" Robyn did the lyrics justice.She's a talent and a half! Some day, I'm going to listen to all your 300 but I just took in a couple on your 31 (I only got 26 and I cheated!). You are prolific!! Great picking good lyrics. Thans

    Hey, Rob, thanks for your comment on my last song. I have enjoyed following you this year although I couldn't keep up with your many songs. Looks like you met your 40+ song goal! Congrats!

    Rob thank you so much for your lovely comments on my songs. To answer your question, I am in a group called Soul Writers University (SWU) and our prompt had a state, a time and a direction for this week. I happen to live in MD and we do go to the beach in DE at Rehoboth and Dewey. Thank you so much again and I will have more time to listen tonight 😀

    thank you for commenting on 3 of my songs today! This has been really fun. i really feel like I did FAWM for the first time. I posted 13 different songs, though some have only lyrics. i hope to post one more tonight, so I'll get to 14!!

    Well I'm closing it down at only 31 songs due to some unanticipated challenges, but plan on listening a lot tonight and commenting on other FAWMERS.

    Hey! Thanks so much for putting "The garden" to music! I like what you have done with it and in which musical direction you have taken it! Also nice editing of the lyrics and awesome guitar play with a lovely tune... Might there be a chance to send me an mp3 on my email address, which is
    ? Once again, thanks so much for this beautiful song!

  • @arthurrossi 3 weeks

    Hey Rob! It is nice to hear from you! Of course, I remember, and I like those songs a lot. Thanks for your kind comment on "The garden", I would look very forward to it! Please, feel free to alter the lyrics any way you like and let me know if you like me to add you as collaborator or just re-post the eventual song - any way you like...

    Hi Rob, I am Kiwi living in Australia 😀 The navy blue represents both the Australian Flag and The Eureka Flag which was the flag used for the Miners rebellion in 1854. Both have the Southern Cross.

    Glad you like my PA turnpike song.

  • @kathym  4 weeks

    Many thanks for the comments on Sweet Louise. I tried uploading the new version of Audacity to see if the defaults might solve the problem. Also wondering if there wasn't interference from having a bluetooth speaker on that was causing a problem. I appreciate the offer of advice. I am NOT a techy!
