FAWM NUMBER 6, 2019!!
OH how I miss you dear FAWMily!! I have been performing more and making money. I am even registering the songs I'm playing in ASCAP and I will reap the TENS OF DOLLARS and so will my fine collaborative friends!!
Step into my madness and listen to the crazy makings of my mind.......
THANK YOU BEAUTIFUL BEING for my Rock Hands, what a wonderful gift!!!
Please check out my WEBSITE tammyjann.com to catch up or to see my photos, poems and recent songs!
FAWM NUMBER 1 2014
When I was young, I loved to write and sing, but was discouraged by others, so I stopped. I stayed in choirs singing for 30 years, but felt invisible, so I stopped. My son died at the age of 7 from Leukemia and I changed and needed an outlet. I began to write songs and sing. I learned from the Muses Muse and JPF and collaborations, I have worked on 144 songs in five years and learned to play instruments in the past four years, guitar, autoharp, ukulele, mandolin, I have an electric guitar...still working on learning that......This year I added a BANJOLELE that I purchased from Wistah and a Djembe! I'm writing to stay sane and feed my heart and soul and I am enjoying the ride!
FAWM NUMBER 2 2015
My first time was so FAB, I am back for my second run. Open to collabs and so very happy that it is time for FAWM....
(thanks to my Guitar teacher for loaning me a Baritone Uke for the month of FEB...)
FAWM NUMBER 3 2016
Thanks to my FAB FAWM and 50/90 Family, I have the songs and courage to do open mics! In June I did my first open mic and then went to FAWMSTOCK!! So awesome and performed with the most amazing FAWM talents! I am thrilled to be back and am open to collabs as always!!
FAWM Number 4 2017
SAVE ME from this retched negative worldy energy! I am here as a refugee from the outside and hope to find peace and sanity in the arms of my loving FAWMily and our musical creations!
Since I last communed with you dear friends, I have performed two hours of guitar music (no vocal) for the Homeless Veteran's Stand Down and showed my art for the very first time. I was doing lots of open mics, but hit the wall of massive depression at the end of October and stopped doing music all together.
I am here to find my mojo, my muse and my drive. I feel my NEED to be here is as large as my LOVE to be here. Please help me FAWM...you are my only hope!!!
2/5/17 UPDATE!! My son gifted me with the disease that is going around his school! Please be patient while I convalesce!

Hello super talent!
You are amazing...
Might just. Thanks for your warm greeting. Have a great FAWM19, my friend.
Hey, Tam! Nice to see you back here! Hope you're doing okay. Thanks again for all those lovely comments you left last year. They really made me smile.
Hello!! Excited to hear what you create this month.
I've updated my fawm 2019 stuff on my profile, your'e more than invited to check it out. Hope you'll have a productive fawm. It's inspiring to hear about your place in life, hope your'e gonna get what you need and more! See you around.
Hi Tammy! Hope you have a lovely FAWM 😀
I was pretty surprised by the thread Renaissance started. I love when really random albums I post start a lengthy conversation. A lot of lesser known albums are bands I've never heard of but I get the albums really cheap so I'll buy anything to give it a listen.
Hey Tammy, just saw your note! Hello back, and here's to a fab FAWM 2019!
Thanks for stopping by my Soundboard. My 2019 plan is finally up. And from your update above, it looks like you're raring to go too!
haha YES! and same!!
Hey Tammy!! Nice to see you again! Good luck.
So good to see you here!
Hey Tams! Looking forward to this FAWM! Hoping to hear new tunes from you too!
Hello tams!!!!! It is that time of year again. I hope you continue to dazzle us with your amazing talents. Glad to see you are performing out and about -- wouldn't want to just keep all that artistry in the shower!
Hiya Tammy. Happy FAWM!
Hey! Can’t wait to hear your new stuff! You’re going to kill it, as usual.
And I am so looking forward to hearing your beautiful voice and amazing song writing this year as well!! I loved reading your Recaps through the years. I wish I had saved mine. Starting off with the same doubts about my ability to produce anything so I have to just go in open to whatever happens or doesn't happen. Let's have fun!
A drum set!?!? Now you’re talking. That should be fun! Any ideas on how you will record it? There are some really good 2 mic methods. I use recorderman and add a kick and snare mic. I used the Glynn Johns method, too, which is great. OR, you can always just have one mic.
Hey Tammy! I'm gonna sharpen my pencils and see what happens! Looking forward to hearing your new songs!
Hi Tammy, have a wonderful FAWM 😀
Hiya, counting down the days until February!
Hi, hoping to hear you soon.
hey you! thanks for the greeting. hope you have fun this coming month.
Hi Tammy! Thanks for your note on my soundboard! Getting set up for a new FAWM is exciting, isn't it?
Hi Tammy, looking forward to hearing your new songs.
Hey Tammy! Happy Fawming!
Happy FAWMing, Tammy!
I hope you're feeling better Tammy, I got a dose of some 'flu too and it was no fun.... here's to Fawm 2019 and your lovely songs ....
