This is my first FAWM and my first attempt to present my songs publicly.
Born in the Midwest USA but lived most of my life on the West Coast. Always loved music and songwriting, but never formally studied.
Walking The Rail was my first collaboration on a song ever. @cts, with his vocals and music, did a brilliant job bringing all that history of my childhood and adolescence into current focus. I appreciate that he took the time to work with a neophyte like myself.
What an incredible experience this FAWM has been. Although I haven't met people personally, I feel I've connected artistically, and spiritually, with many of you. In the process I learned a lot about myself. Thank you all so much.
