This year I celebrate a decade of FAWMing or 28% of my life, if you inexplicably prefer.
I've not had the busiest year musically. I did release an EP in September. Other than that, I've been putting the finishing touches to my second album.
I did discover how time consuming making music videos can be though:
I had fun last year writing uptempo, funky stuff but I think I'm gonna slow it down a bit this year and go for more of a noir-ish, torch song style. I've also got an idea for a song cycle percolating in the back of my brain and one for a sci-fi krautrock side project, so who knows what will come out!
I feel like I was a bit lax last year as far as commenting was concerned, so I'll be making a concerted effort on that front this time around.

Thanks for commenting on ‘Alone’, you’re very kind.
Thanks for commenting on “Galaxy’s Edge.” Funny, by the end of FAWM, I’ve forgotten what each song is so had to take another listen to see what it was all about. Lol! Thanks, again!
Thanks, again, for your generous comments.
Matt Maltese, aye, I came across him a couple of years ago in the run-up to one of those inner city festivals and really enjoyed his set. I'll need to catch up on what he's doing now.
Thanks for your feedback on both my tracks. Really appreciate you taking the time to listen and to give your comments. Also, super-pleased that you enjoyed them!
Thank you so much for your kind words! I've been in love with Sufjan Stevens since I was a Freshman in high school, so I take that as a complement of the highest order 😁
Thanks for your thoughtful comments! So awesome 👍
Thanks for all the listens! Much appreciated!

Noirish sci-fi torchsong krautrock it is, then. Welcome back!

Looking forward to hearing your stuff, too
You as well! Happy FAWMing!
Good tips, good tips! Amma gonna Tom Waits it up 😃 Hope you have a fun one!

Let’s raise the vibration!!!
Hey Dan - good to hear from you. I'm looking forward to hearing new stuff from you!
I'm sure my one-track mind will also insist upon some catcore at some point! Looking forward to whatever you come up with, especially if the sci-fi krautrock comes to fruition!
Also looking forward what you will present. Nice video!
You bet I will, boy howdy
I just watched your video. It's great, very stylish visuals and hauntingly spare music. Have a great FAWM.
Thanks for touching base! Glad to see you again.
Awwww, how lovely. Thanks for remembering me! It will be ace to hear your music again too 😀
Ah glad you're back man. Yeah, meeting Pete was pretty crazy but it would have been silly not to! Good taste 😉 I know there's not one on record, but we added masses of orchestration to the ending, it was wild.. there'll be a pro video released of it soon I think
Welcome back sir! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with 😁
In the words of Cameo, word up.
