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!
