Well, that was an uneventful year! I miss the halcyon days of FAWM 2020, when all we had to worry about was that half the world was on fire. Good times.
I've had a reasonably productive year music-wise but I've not actually written that many songs. I spent most it finishing my second album:
This means recently I've spent far too long clicking a mouse instead of actually playing music and I'm bored by it. This will probably mean my demos will be a bit more lo-fi this year! I've got a few new toys to play with - a vocal effects unit, a pocket drum machine, banjo - which I hope will speed up my work flow a bit.
I think that I rely on story/concept songs a bit too much, so I'm aiming to write some lyrics that are a bit more oblique and poetic (cue 14 story songs!).
Check out some other miscreants from my home town of Medway, if you dare:
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Thanks so much for the warm welcome hello. Looking forward to catching up with your music. Have a fun FabFeb21!
Hey! Happy fawming 😀
Looking forward to hearing some new sounds from you this year dude. Banjo!?! Such a tricky instrument but lots of fun to learn and will certainly add a different texture to your songs. Benji has requested at least one murder ballad/death song/serial killer song please! (He's a big fan apparently!)
I hope so Magpie. Thanks for the message 😀 yay for Fawm
Let's see what comes out of the sound hole this year!
Hey there. Welcome back friend. Let’s make some great music.
As always looking forward to your amazing talent!
Last night I had a dream where I was at a bar/museum/venue with Bill Murray watching the Blue Nile. neat huh?
Hey Serviettes. Enjoyed your Nur Ein run!
You as well! Can't wait for February!
Hi, good to see the Kent contingent still here and kicking

Ahh I hope so! I shall look forward to hearing your music 👍
Thanks! You have a great one too!
Ahoy! Let's do this.
Same to you! Happy FAWM!
Hello!!! Happy FAWM!
😀 Yay! Happy FAWM! Looking forward to hearing your awesome tunes this year!
My tunage is best served with a Serviette! Back atcha!
Hey there! Hope all's well at your end. I am indeed hoping to contribute a bit more this year!
Great to see you back. And with a banjo too. This bodes well.
Yas! I’ll take a fresh slice of magpie please 😁
Nice to see you here again! Happy FAWMing!
Welcome back bro. I on the other hand am setting out to tell a story, so lets see how that pans out!
Hi there, have a good month. I really enjoyed your album On the spoty. Thx for the music.
