Influences: Bottle Rockets, Holy Modal Rounders (Stampfel and Weber), Norman Blake, Hendrix, SRV, Buddy Guy, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, The Blues, Neil Young
If Neil Young and The Holy Modal Rounders had a litter of baby songwriters then T.C. Elliott would be the runt of the litter.
T.C. has written over 1100 songs and at least one of them doesn't suck.
The Earth without art is just Eh!

Hey thanks for the nice comment on my tune. I sent it over to your email. Looking forward to checking out some of your material too. Have an awesome day <3
Regarding the Dog ending, I wouldn't be so sure the ending's all that positive. It's doesn't technically say what happens. We just know what the dog thinks is happening. So... good on you for your optimism.
You are very kind. 😊
Well, I am glad you liked my take on the FakeIt Challenge. I might have had an unfair advantage in that as the writer of the words/chords they are in my motif to start with though!
Hey, thanks for playing That Little Red Dress on the FAWM talk!
Hello TC, thanks for your comment on Gibraltar Hill. The Hank Williams in hell challenge was a really good one, wasn't it. I've enjoyed the songs.
Hey man! Glad to see you here, too.
You were a big help during 50/90 and gave a lot of encouragement and support.
I've been over on a couple facebook music groups doing skirmishes and challenges and the like.
Just getting going here...but I see you're already almost there! Nice!
Will be checking you out...
I know. It can be hard to deliver footlings!
I had to laugh at "Castle Pigsty." When my wife gets into an especially grumpy mood her favorite complaint, which hits me like nails on a chalkboard, is "This place is a pigsty." (I have fantasies of taking her to one of the factory farms in North Carolina and saying "No, THIS is a pigsty," but I like staying married.) Anyway maybe I will have to rename Chez Banjo to Chez Pigsty for a few days to own the fact that unlike godliness, cleanliness is next to impossible.
Thank you for your lovely feedback on "Trying Hard to Breathe".
Thanks so much for listening 😀
Thanks for your comments! I was considering coming to listen to your Songfight entry too but decided to wait till they're all posted and check out something else first 😀
Thank you for your very kind words on "The Journey", I don't use effects all that much but felt that song called for it. The Tanglewood is a new addition to my arsenal and I'm loving using it on the softer songs.
Thanks for the listen! Yeah, that tail was supposed to be long, but not that long! Thanks for saying - I've sorted it out now 😀
Thanks! I like your style in song #6 "my favorite monster". I bought this year a new electric guitar so I'm looking for inspirations everywhere this fawm.
thanks for the comment. Yeah, it is a rusting cymbal. I tried to make a waterphone out of a bowl and only ended up having a bowl with rusty water leaking all over the place, it made that thing too.
Thanks for listening and for the kind words on my song "Something Wicked this Way Comes".
Thanks for the comment on Flying Saucers. I'm glad you enjoyed the Radio vocals and the piano. It was a lot of fun to make.
See You In The Shadows…
TC! Thank you so much for having my song on the show. I guess I’m a Vulvatron now.
Looking forward to getting back to signal consistent enough to stream your stuff
Thanks for the comment and the note on posting to each other's actual profile page!
Thanks for the comment! Have a great FAWM!
Thanks for the welcome! Have a great month!
Thanks T.C.! Regarding the link, are you referring to the built-in player? If so I have tried - and _ and removing those characters leaving just alpha but nothing makes it work in Firefox for me. I just tried your song again and it does not play using the player either. I think the website is getting a wee bit long in the tooth!
Hope you have a great FAWM; you sure got off to a great start!
Hope you have a great FAWM. 😀
Happy FAWM! 😀
As ever, you are kind and gracious, T.C. Thank you so much. It's good to see you...
Aww, thanks, but a big THANK YOU for doing the list!!! I think more people are lurking it and perhaps just not responding tho. Lots of great prompts!
Thanks for the warm welcome. Happy FAWM
Hello TC. Happy FAWM 2019. Let's have another great month.
Welcome back, TC, and may your fawm be fun, healthy, and productive.
Hi TC, I am stopping by to say hello! I still remember your support from way back when I was a fawmling, and I still appreciate that. That was so excellent back in 2009 when you contacted me to remind me that FAWM started. Thanks for that and I have a song to remember. You'll see in the forum thread.
So you want to drum? I understand that you have been practicing.....what do you want to accomplish as a drummer this year? That is kind of broad, but maybe I can be of some help.....Drumming is one of those things that seems so simple, but really is not. I feel the same way about the bass. Both can really change the vibe of a song to take it to a different and better place. They both can limit a song, too...
How the drumming going? Do I smell some battle of beginning drummers as an entertaining random collaboration? 😁
Better start playing that new pretty geeetar 😀. Happy Fawm
You, sir, a gentleman and a scholar. Of Rawk.
I am ready to be amazed once again by your creativity, music, soulful songs, and productivity! Love your music and looking forward to this!!! Happy FAWMing!
Well fancy seeing you here 😀
oh-ow, you got mail! 😉
Hey you too! Sadly my calendar looks like it'll be super crowded so I'll be participating but don't know how much time I can actually have for FAWM because Work, Band-stuff and Roller Derby seem to be eating all my time 😁
Hey T! You've been doing this almost as long as I have, but I think you're surpassed in number of songs written. Go you! 14 more? No problem. :😅
Not only am I around, I shall be jobless for at least some of February (intentionally), so will have tonnes of time to write songs. Hooray!
Howdy + Ready = Rowdy. Ready, Rowdy FAWM!
And then there was FAWM! Looking forward to it!
Wuss up, my dude! Hope all is well and look forward to what springs from the well of your ideas!
Hey TC, Happy FAWMing!! Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year!
Hi TC, good to hear from you! I know you're as pumped as anybody to get this year going! Wishing you TONS of inspiration for FAWM 2019.
Happy FAWMing, TC.
Mm, yeah, I'm planning on being around this year. Just hadn't gotten around to changing my profile.
In a way I quite like the challenge of trying to create a good song from a bad title? But in various other ways, I do not. Still working on something for Doom With a View though...
Hey, I remember you. <3
Oh no! You again!? FML...
Ha, I know what you mean. But... I'll probably roll any well-timed fights into my FAWM, to be honest. Although I hope we get some better titles to work with soon!
I am ready to lyric! LOL - You know i need others to "music" 😀
Hey there! Looking forward to this.
Yay TC! I’m sure I’ll catch you in the slack some time soon...
Welcome back! May the piggy bring goodness and joy!
Ha! Yes, I'm ready to Jello... and FAWM!! 😁 Hope 2019 brings many awesome tunes to you this year! Looking forward to hearing what you do! So many awesome titles on your Facebook group page!!!!
Hey.. thank you for your welcoming words. Have a(nother) enjoyable February!
Too much time on my hands is the reason for the practise routines, T.C. 😉
That, and me being a ways up the autism spectrum when it comes to focusing on technique.
The new amp is a beast. I'll blog about it, or do a write up on FB so you can find out more.
Good to see you here TC! Looking forward to this, once again... 😀
Hi TC! Thanks for the warm welcome. That piggy on a potty always makes me smile. Have a great Fawm 2019!
Hi TC. Yes I’ve been very lazy this year with not one SF entry. I really must get back into that. Have a great February.
Hey T.C.! Happy FAWM 2019! Looking forward to hearing new stuff from you.
I think it's important to note here that my favorite anagram for pig farmer is "firm grape."
Happy FAWM! I'm quite amazed at your songs count, and glad you plan to keep on going! I can remember so many of those non-sucking ones... 🙂
Lets. Do. This.
Heigh ho... here we go again!
