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!


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!

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...)

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!

FAWM NUMBER 5, 2018!!

I've missed you FAWM, let's make some music!!

    Thanks Tam's! So great to hear you still around. I'm glad you enjoyed underwater underground. I sorely need to remix that whole thing so you're dropping by is a good reminder for me to get cracking on it. πŸ˜€

  • @jamkar  Mar 14

    Thank you Tammy for commenting on my collab with @barbara . Your listens/comments mean alot!

  • @barbara  Mar 14

    Hi! I just wanted you to know I'm not done listening, but my time to spend with headphones is pretty sparse lately. Meanwhile, you hit 300 comments!! Impressive. I'll be back...

  • @aesthetic72 Mar 7

    Thanks for your comments! Believe it or not, we share the same birthday! πŸ˜€ I'm on my way to Roma to celebrate this year. Communication will be spotty but feel free to email me at aesthetic.seventytwo at gmail dot com

  • @guatecoop  Mar 7

    So, what do you think about collaborations? I like them, but if I do too many I feel like I didn’t really dig into writing on my own. You seem to like them, so what is your take? Do you have a threshold? So I notice that I only listened to one of yours so far....I’m going to catch up! I love your writing.

  • @mitchmash  Mar 6

    Thank you for your comments! Congrats on FAWM2019 - 16 songs! That's amazing! Your songs never let me down! x

  • @rickamorphis  Mar 5

    Hi Tammy, thanks for your kind words on my collab with Liz...I really liked that one too! Just heard a few of your songs and I think you have a truly unique voice, both as a writer and a singer. Keep it up!

  • @jwhanberry  Mar 5

  • @clioem Mar 5

    Thanks so much Tammy! <3
    I actually wrote my entire first FAWM on that guitarlele - she's quite a little boss 😁 It's one of my fave instruments of all time; I'm using her now for some classical work as well <3

  • @majordanby  Mar 4

    I’m still listening so will post more comments, and will spell check first. Great songs.

  • @mikeb Mar 3

    Thanks for listening and commenting on '3000 Miles'.

  • @cts  Mar 3

    You do amazing work, Tammy. Thank you for all of your encouragement over the years!

  • @cindyrella  Mar 3

    Yeah, I went a little crazy this year!

  • @donna  Mar 2

    Thank you for your lovely comment on 'Lead Me Away'.

    Interesting, I could hear Blackmore's Night' as well. πŸ˜‰

  • @aesthetic72 Mar 2

    Hi Tammy, thanks for your comment! I am also a Pisces!!! Fancy that. πŸ˜€

  • @acromie  Mar 1

    Thank you so much for all your comments! I'd love to hear your kid songs, are they anywhere I can listen? I get to test all mine with my kids, so I usually have a good sounding board before I take them public. But then again, they think everything I do is hilarious.

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 1

    Tammy!! I’m blown away and so happily surprised!! I LOVE the magical and gorgeous life you brought to these words! I will treasure this song and am so very grateful that you picked up one of my lyrics! What a gift!!!

  • @hummingbear Mar 1

    Thanks for your comments on Didn't Want This, I tried fictionalize and make it generic and relatable. I'm so sorry for the loss of your son, and wish you healing. {Bear hugs.} Friends of mine lost their six-year-old to an inoperable brain cancer many years ago. Sigh.

  • @mikegtz  Mar 1

    You did it with a song to spare! I did 15 too just cuz. It's great that you, me, @bethdesombre and @wistah all hit 14 this year!

  • @valeriecox  Mar 1

    Thank you, Tammy. You're so sweet. Congratulations on your FAWM win...+1!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 28

    Congrats on your win!! I'm about to have a listening feast of your beautiful music! <3

  • @benjo  Feb 28

  • @popmythology  Feb 28

    Thank you so much for your kind words on the song, Tammy... they actually do help.

  • @mikeb Feb 27

    Congratulations on getting your 2019 trophy!

  • @mikegtz  Feb 27

    Two more songs, go Tammy go. I put Fragile up on the Recommended Listing thread, so you will get a ton more fans.

  • @mikeb Feb 27

    Thanks for the comment on my collab song with Tony!

  • @kevinemmrich  Feb 26

    Just wasn't meant to be this time around. But I am having fun working on the things I am working on. Maybe this means I will jump in full force into 50/90.

  • @audrey  Feb 26

    Thank you for the kind words about my songs Tea Time for Teddy Bear and Becoming Whole.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 26

    You are so kind Tams! Glad you liked my Belfry song. I think you and I definitely have a kindred songbird spirit. I love, love listening to you too!

  • @kristi  Feb 24

    Hi Tammy! No one is offering anything on Nothing Better. Feel free to go ahead! Thank you!! πŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  Feb 24

    Thanks for your nice comments on my Door lyric

  • @jaegerin  Feb 23

    So happy with what you’ve done with β€œMove On”. Thank you ❀️

  • @jaegerin  Feb 23

    Hi Tammy, thanks for your lovely comments on both "Too Scary" and "Moving On"!

    If you have an idea for "Moving On", then by all means go for it! I trust your instincts and to be honest I also think it needs a more upbeat melody to contrast with the sad story rather than drag it down even more. Especially since it's a playful piece really (at least to me), because of the hidden meaning.

  • @benjo  Feb 23

    Hey Tamms

    you really must have felt these words
    because you painted such a beautiful picture in my mind
    and your voice made it feel like I was in heaven
    you never need my permission to
    do my lyrics cause I know you will only ever enhance them
    what a wonderful morning you've made it for me Tamms, it's always special to me when you touch my words with your magical voice THANK YOU SO SO MUCH


  • @cindyrella  Feb 23

    Girl, you out did yourself! You have gotten inside my head and captured the beauty of what I saw!
