T.C. Elliott 30


CoMo - Columbia MO US   Jan 2008


Artist Bio

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.

In January 2018 I released my first bandcamp album as a solo artist. You can find it here in digital:

    Thanks, TC...I guess it was a zong for a couple days because I didn't say anything about it on the boards...things are different in March. Thanks for listening and leaving some words!

  • @mikeb Mar 24

    Thanks for the comment on my song!

  • @devin  Mar 13

    Verily! I heard the riff that beat out DragonDreams in round 1... and I thought β€œhmm?”. I scrolled down and you tipped it off.

    Special thanks to a certain metal guy, a founding fawmer, and Swampjaw for the extra voices!

  • @devin  Mar 13

    Back in round 1 of the riff competition, you made a comment on one of the entries that caught my eye.

    I was travelling at the time, and had to wait a week to check it out with a DAW.

    What do you think? *I* think you were right...


  • @zecoop  Mar 6

    E-mailed you... My answer (without knowing the question) is that you can use them for anything you want and I can send you WAVs if you need them. πŸ˜€

  • @johnstaples  Mar 3

    THANK YOU to @ianuarius and @tcelliott for FAWMtalk 2019

  • @the3queens  Mar 3

    if you guys do midwest FAWMSTOCK, let me know. @tcelliott @nancyrost @kahlo2013

  • @nancyrost  Mar 2

    How about doing a Midwest Fawmstock in the autumn? It's a beautiful time of year here. Maybe this time we'd be able to find something closer to the city, given enough lead time.

  • @vomvorton  Mar 2

    Cheers! Just had my first listen and it's a really strong fight. No BSS for this one, weird! Will listen a few more times before I write some reviews but I think Jerkatorium and Tuner's Union will be hard to beat.

  • @jmadison  Mar 2

    Oh my goodness... I am stunned. Thank you so much for your comments and for picking my song for FAWM talk. I mean... There were over 10-freaking-thousand options and you featured one of my songs. (head explodes)

  • @hummingbear Feb 26

    There's country-ish, balladeer-ish Fawmer who always delivers a good song @famouspatrick. His songs are downloadable. Your radio list is prolly miles long by now. Radio show's been fun, still have a couple to go back and listen to.

  • @ohwell123 Feb 26

    Thank you for your comment on "Where Have You Gone My Love?". I greatly appreciate it.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 26

    Song nearly complete πŸ‘

  • @hummingbear Feb 26

    If you did 14 x 2, does that mean you're a good-fer-nothin-two-timer?? Congrats.
    Dropped by w/ possible fawmling for your world-renowned radio program. Acoustic, bluegrass, folk - @apauls. Check him out.

  • @valeriecox  Feb 25

    Dude! 28 songs. You're rocking it! I just popped over to see what you're up to and bam! Winning. πŸ˜€ I'm going for 28 myself, but time is getting short. Hope to make it. Congrats on your double win!

  • @billysea  Feb 25

    I think the song does come across from the POV of the "stalker". I think in their mind, they aren't even stalking at all. Sorry if my comments came across differently. I like your "shrug" though, That is where I was on my last several. They weren't where I wanted them to be but my guitar skills couldn't pull off what was in my head so I just posted them and considered them good enough.
    Don't think I'll be hitting Missouri this trip but it IS on my beer bucket list so will have to make a trip out there at some point. I'll be sure to look you up when I do πŸ˜€

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 25

    Yes matey feel free to send the back track . If you could email an mp3 to me that’s the best way for me to get it on garage band on the phone . My email should be up there but just in case is karl harrison25(at)hotmail(dot)co(dot)uk πŸ‘

  • @treble  Feb 23

    Thanks for your kind and insightful comments on my skirmish song, Waiting for Something Better. Sometimes it's hard to know when to fish and when to cut bait, but you're right, my undeerlying theme was to be true to oneself.

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 23

    it's never too late for a glockenspiel, amigo!

  • @chandra83  Feb 22

    Thank-you. <3

  • @tjeff  Feb 22

    Hi and thanks so much for listening and commenting on a few songs - much appreciated!

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 22

  • @tiller2  Feb 22

    Thanks for your kind comments on my garden song! I look forward to listening to your songs soon.

  • @fulanin Feb 22

    LMAO with all the rawks you are giving hahahaha.

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 21

    Cheers for the comment. That image is terrifying!

  • @rickamorphis  Feb 19

    Hey man thanks for the kind analysis on my collab w/ Liz...I still blame you for getting me involved here all those yrs ago when you mentioned fawm on a br-600 forum! And yes, one of the pleasures of being an adult is being able to own my own vibraslap. πŸ˜€

  • @candle  Feb 19

    Thanks for all your great comments, TC! Now I have to catch up on the rest of your songs!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 19

    Thanks for your comments on my Fake-It take. I know it's been a while, but I've been FAWM-deficient. I really appreciate the details you mentioned.

  • @theodamus Feb 17

    Thank you so much! 😁

  • @acromie  Feb 17

    Thanks for listening to Hug a Snowman and for your lovely compliments! I'm glad you liked it.

  • @darkmantle  Feb 17

    Thanks for your comment on the song "You are".

    If you're referring to the verse chords, the last line takes the C major, and slides it up the neck 2 frets making some sort of D monstrosity that enjoy using. πŸ˜€

  • @jimwood150 Feb 17

    Thanks for your encouraging remarks about Poker Face.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 15

  • @caitlinpieper Feb 15

    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

  • @lavishdude Feb 12

    !! Sorry for making you re-live that horror 😞
    Would a rock song with organ in it cheer you up?

  • @oddaustin  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2019

    You are very kind. 😊

  • @downfallroad  Feb 2019

    Yeah Duuuuude!

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 2019

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2019

    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!

  • @theresaj  Feb 2019

    Hey, thanks for playing That Little Red Dress on the FAWM talk!

  • @aneil Feb 2019

    Thanks for your comment on invitation I may have wrote the words but @Marthie sang it sweetly! Have a Fun Feb!

  • @francessmith  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @splittybooms  Feb 2019

    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...

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2019

    I know. It can be hard to deliver footlings!

  • @tuneslayer2018  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @wacha  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your lovely feedback on "Trying Hard to Breathe".

  • @judypie  Feb 2019

    Thanks so much for listening πŸ˜€

  • @owl  Feb 2019

    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 πŸ˜€

  • @wacha  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @sapient  Feb 2019

    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 πŸ˜€

  • @haim  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @mrmule Feb 2019

    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.

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

    Thanks for listening and for the kind words on my song "Something Wicked this Way Comes".

  • @candle  Feb 2019

    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…

  • @evinwolverton  Feb 2019

    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

  • @sourcedecay Feb 2019

    Thanks for the comment and the note on posting to each other's actual profile page!

  • @pfaffbrill  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the comment! Have a great FAWM!

  • @heliosonorous Feb 2019

    Thanks for the welcome! Have a great month!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 2019

    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!

  • @audrey  Jan 2019

    Hope you have a great FAWM. πŸ˜€

  • @enigma4711  Jan 2019

    Happy FAWM! πŸ˜€

  • @popmythology  Jan 2019

    As ever, you are kind and gracious, T.C. Thank you so much. It's good to see you...

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2019

    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!

  • @tabitha Jan 2019

    Thanks for the warm welcome. Happy FAWM

  • @nuj4x Jan 2019

    RAWR! πŸ˜‰

  • @jwhanberry  Jan 2019

    Hello TC. Happy FAWM 2019. Let's have another great month.

  • @tiller2  Jan 2019

    Welcome back, TC, and may your fawm be fun, healthy, and productive.

  • @lvgd09  Jan 2019

    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.

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2019

    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...

  • @dasbinky  Jan 2019

    How the drumming going? Do I smell some battle of beginning drummers as an entertaining random collaboration? 😁

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 2019

    Better start playing that new pretty geeetar πŸ˜€. Happy Fawm

  • @dasbinky  Jan 2019

    You, sir, a gentleman and a scholar. Of Rawk.

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    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!

  • @jibbidy34  Jan 2019

    Well fancy seeing you here πŸ˜€

  • @cairobraga  Jan 2019

    oh-ow, you got mail! πŸ˜‰

  • @alamous Jan 2019

    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 😁

  • @valeriecox  Jan 2019

    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. :πŸ˜…

  • @helenseviltwin  Jan 2019

    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!

  • @hummingbear Jan 2019

    Howdy + Ready = Rowdy. Ready, Rowdy FAWM!

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2019

    And then there was FAWM! Looking forward to it!

  • @cts  Jan 2019

    Wuss up, my dude! Hope all is well and look forward to what springs from the well of your ideas!

  • @mosley  Jan 2019

    Hey TC, Happy FAWMing!! Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year!

  • @oneslowtyper  Jan 2019

    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.

  • @hummingbear Jan 2019

    Happy FAWMing, TC.

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Jan 2019


  • @everettcinaed Jan 2019

    Mm, yeah, I'm planning on being around this year. Just hadn't gotten around to changing my profile.

  • @vomvorton  Jan 2019

    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...

  • @ralphhogaboom Jan 2019

    Hey, I remember you. <3

  • @adnama17  Jan 2019

    Oh no! You again!? FML...


  • @vomvorton  Jan 2019

    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!

  • @deannasweidel Jan 2019

    I am ready to lyric! LOL - You know i need others to "music" πŸ˜€

  • @standup  Jan 2019

    Hey there! Looking forward to this.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 2019

    Yay TC! I’m sure I’ll catch you in the slack some time soon...

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 2019

    Welcome back! May the piggy bring goodness and joy!

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2019

    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!!!!

  • @ferry0123 Jan 2019

    Hey.. thank you for your welcoming words. Have a(nother) enjoyable February!

  • @dragondreams  Jan 2019

    Too much time on my hands is the reason for the practise routines, T.C. πŸ˜‰
    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.
