Artist Bio

Influences:   I always type something in here, but very often it never shows up in what pops out of my head during FAWM. This year I have listened to quite a bit of Black Keys, Dan Auerbach, and The Raconteurs. Old blues riff based stuff. I’ve never played that kind of music, so we’ll see whether I can pull anything off like that.

2020 is my 14th FAWM. It was in my 1st or 2nd FAWM that I started the idea of FAWMku in January, to get the creative juices flowing. It has taken on a life of it's own and that makes me happy as a very small way to give back to this great community.

I am up for collabs - I play guitars, bass and keys and sing. Collabs will be with lyricists that have 'safe for work' lyrics.

Some of my collaboration capabilities that are not so common here on FAWM:
I have added B3 to several FAWMer's past offerings - if you don't know what that is, you probably aren't looking for it - which is cool.
Synth leads and beds
Maybe drums using EZ Drummer.
Freestyling acoustic piano and singing to lyrics without music.
Other stuff like that.

I made a promo video for FAWM 2019, if you would like to see it or share it...

Unfulfilled 2019 collaborations for which I would like to correct that in 2020:

Yes! All unfulfilled collaborators have agreed to give it a shot for 2020! I have two more also committed to with the venerable @tcelliott and drum track
provider of plenty @zecoop.

Finally, I have made an offer to take a crack at cover art for 5 fawmers during the month of January 2020. So far, those that have posted on my message board as I requested are:

    Ah yeah. Saw Temples live a couple of years ago. Loved that they really got that 60s psyche sound that so many others reach for but never quite seem to capture with any authenticity. Great live too!

    I wish you good fortune in the carnage to come.

    YES, someone that likes "Blinded by the Light", great movie!! Hope you have an awesome FAWM and get your collabs in!!

  • @meadows  2 days

    Hey Scott! Let's do it! 😀 Count me in for a song in German. Have a nice FAWM this year!

  • @w1n  3 days

    Hi Scott, hope you'll have a great FAWM

  • @metalfoot  3 days

    Hi Scott!

  • @resonance 4 days

    Sorry for being so late to reply, Scott. Let's definitely fulfill last year's collab - and please put me down for some of your beautiful artwork if you can spare the time for it.

    Btw, it's good to see you again, sir !

  • @akokulit 4 days

    You do the lyrics first then (and some melody if you want). I'll add full-song melody to it. Then go from there. 😀

  • @jamkar  5 days

    Wow! You do beautiful artwork Scott!

  • @jamkar  5 days

    I didn’t see it in inbox or spam. Can you resend?

  • @akokulit 6 days

    How about we go lyrics > melody? Are you more of a lyrics or a melody person?

  • @zecoop  1 week

    I certainly hope so - My plans are completely fluid this year and I have no preconceived plans, due to the extenuating circumstances. I'm planning on not going nuts like last year... My only plan is to have fun. 😀

    Happy FAWM!! Looking forward to what you come up with! 😀

    Sure. Johnny Cash inspired track would be awesome. 😀

  • @akokulit 1 week

    Hey man! I'm up for it. How would you like to do it?

  • @hummingbear  1 week

    Wishing you another wonderful FAWM!

  • @cts  1 week

    That's cool. No worries on my end. I have a pic if you'd like for me to send your way. Thanks for taking the time to do the artwork. Much appreciated!

  • @tsunamidaily  1 week

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @aesthetic72  1 week

    Looking forward to hearing you again this year!

  • @cts  1 week

    Actually I believe I do. However, if you could incorporate jellyfish, a bass guitar, headphones, and a keyboard and mash it all up a-la The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album cover (but underwater) that'd be awesome. If not, then feel free to envision it as you see fit (and are able to do) and I'll be satisfied...seriously.

  • @johnstaples  1 week

    yep...that was my comment. 😁

  • @jacobeverettwallace  1 week

    I hate the Astros, haha. I'm a Texas Rangers fan.

  • @tcelliott  1 week

    Awesome subject matter... heheh

  • @johnstaples  1 week

    What bomb did I drop? That religion is a made up human construct? Spoiler alert!

  • @johnstaples  1 week

    The question is irrelevant and uninteresting to me!

  • @johnstaples  1 week

    Scott, 5000 years from now, assuming humans still even exist (which is arguably unlikely) all of today's popular religions will have been ideally replaced by a nearly universal understanding of the universe based on the scientific method or, more likely, by a whole new set of religions unrecognizable by us!

  • @jacobeverettwallace  1 week

    Hey Scott! Book me down, Dano. Let's get weird on something. I have no plans at all for FAWM yet so we might see some wacky stuff.

  • @tcelliott  1 week

    re: Art Brut. What you think about an art brut-ish collab? I'm thinking of making a guitar track and sending your way if you're up for it. Totally fine if not. Or maybe we can do competing art brut songs or something. Anyway, I'm up for an attempt if you are.

  • @cts  1 week

    ...aaaand if you're up to it, I'd like to take you up on that cover art offer if a slot is still available.

  • @cts  1 week

    I absolutely would love to see that come to fruition, my man. Let's make it a priority this go round! Great to see you back in the fold, too!

  • @tcelliott  1 week

    Here's to another great Fawm. Thanks for the Art Brut recommendation.

  • @jamkar  1 week

    Hey I am interested in your cover art for my 2020 album.
