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!
Thanks for the comment on my song!
Verily! I heard the riff that beat out DragonDreams in round 1... and I thought “hmm?”. I scrolled down and you tipped it off.
Special thanks to a certain metal guy, a founding fawmer, and Swampjaw for the extra voices!
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. 😀
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.
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.
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)
Thank you for your comment on "Where Have You Gone My Love?". I greatly appreciate it.
Song nearly complete 👍
Dude! 28 songs. You're rocking it! I just popped over to see what you're up to and bam! Winning. 😀 I'm going for 28 myself, but time is getting short. Hope to make it. Congrats on your double win!
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 😀
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 👍
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.
it's never too late for a glockenspiel, amigo!
Hi and thanks so much for listening and commenting on a few songs - much appreciated!
Thanks for your kind comments on my garden song! I look forward to listening to your songs soon.
LMAO with all the rawks you are giving hahahaha.
Cheers for the comment. That image is terrifying!
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. 😀
Thanks for all your great comments, TC! Now I have to catch up on the rest of your songs!
See You In The Shadows…
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.
Thank you so much! 😁
Thanks for listening to Hug a Snowman and for your lovely compliments! I'm glad you liked it.
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. 😀
Thanks for your encouraging remarks about Poker Face.
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.
