I turn 30 in a few months, I'm sure my songs this FAWM will end up being about how *exceptionally well* I am dealing with the looming spectre of that.
Gonna try for some more collabs this year I think, so who wants to collab? 😀

Yo yo yo thanks for including me on your list of FAWM songs! All the best dude!
Thanks for your comment on Telephones. I’m glad you enjoyed that track. I definitely need to fill that out more. I’ll be back later to check your tunes!
Thank you for your very kind comments on my track "February Moon". I'm overwhelmed and I appreciate a lot your time spending on listening to this amateur.
Thanks for your kind comments on "Good Things". Yes, marimba. I'm going to bring it up just a little in the mix. It's such a happy, island sound.
You're very kind, thank you. 😊
I've fallen in love with the sound of that amp. Mind you, it has taken two years of design and development to get it to that stage. 😉🤓
Hey I really appreciate your comments on Found Me. I do want to mix that one better to add to my 'keepers'. I'll definitely take your advice on that.
Thanks for the nice comment on 'The fact remains'. It was actually very simple to do... Just been enjoying your 'Pocari Sweat'!
Thanks so much. We found out after the jam that the guy playing acoustic guitar had never jammed with other people before. He’s a natural. Experimental musicians are ready for every musical adventure I guess. 😀
La noire! Sweet! How the questioning in that game irked me 😂 I was on the come down from many months of red dead abuse so welcomed the PS4 break really!
Ahhh MY MAN thank you so much for listenin!!
I'm pumped you've got a ton of songs knocked out this Feb; can't wait to start listening through your whole list!
Hey thanks for your comment! to get that tone,I actually just set a mic by my fender mustang 1 amp. I'm really happy with it!
"I gave up once I realised the vocal melody I was singing was basically Temporary Secretary by Macca". I'D LIKE TO HEAR THIS. But it also reminded me, have you heard SOAK's "Knock me off my feet"? The chorus is the same as TS verses!
thanks for the comments! planning to work on that christmas demo this weekend 😀
Hi! Yay, thank you so much for your comments! I started to think about the common need to succeed (a thing that often makes me cringe a bit), so it's really nice to hear that the thoughts had somekind of an echo in you! And ps. Sufjan is my songwriter god!
Oh you’re just the sweetest. Looking forward to checking out your tracks...so behind on my listening and work blows this month.
Cheers for the comments and listening.
it's Pink FAMWlentine Day so I want to say I love you and your music and thank you for being one of the reasons I stayed I fell in love with FAWM. S2
Haha, sorry for the sneaky edit. I love your optimism. It's on at 5am here so I've set my alarm to watch Fernando perform his miracle. I did actually want to namedrop the players but I went for the date-proof approach instead. And I think Matt felt similar to you about the rocking tunes. He always seemed to enjoy playing those more. I have got back into Calories recently so I may go down that route again yet. The month is yet young.
Heheh I looked up scottish slang for jobby lol 😀 Holy moly 8 songs already you are killing it!! Gotta get my listen on but will get there
Alliteration palindrome, fancy talk, my friend 😀 Glad you enjoyed! Now to listen to some tunes.
Oh man, dude, thanks as always for listening and your comments! Your even mentioning St Vincent in relation to a song of mine will likely sustain me for years. Looking forward to using my upcoming travel time to catch up with more of your stuff!
I’m not sure if the background drone is noise from my wonky omnichord or a Buddha machine or what but I got kind of lost in the threads of the track and just decided it is what it is. Glad you liked it. Looking forward to listening to your tracks.
Ah nice, I did notice the swing! Cool tipzzzz!
I knew I had nicked the Sir Brewster bit from somewhere. I played in Team Me for a year or so until the release of the first EP
Hey! Just logging in to FAWM today for the first time all day and discovered that you had posted our collab and what can I say... I FREAKIN' LOVE IT!! It's beautiful - dreamy and sweet, floating along like, like... like little air sailors and sick spiced dreams?! I've played it three times already before writing this note and can't wait to keep playing it some more on repeat. And if it's okay with you I'd like to share this on FB and Twitter. (Are you on FB, btw?) Almost every year I've done FAWM I've been lucky enough to have some collabs but wasn't sure if I'd be getting any this year (haha, "getting any"). So thank you so much!! Again, it's really beautiful...
I LOVE Katie Dey, and I had her vocals in mind when I recorded that song! I think she's super underrated. Great catch!
Yup! Totally cool to play around w/ those lyrics and, yeah, I understand it's not a sure thing. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
Eeeh a fellow Carly Rae fan! Right on, I've liked her since Curiosity came out but loved her since Emotion. My favorite album of this decade so far, and one of my Top 10 all time honestly. Thanks for the comment, I'll check out yer stuff when I have the chance.
Thanks for your comment. Can’t wait to check out more if your stuff.
Thank you for listening and commenting. My guitar style is a little rough, so pleased how this turned out.
oooh I dig it. yeah, I'm game to take a stab at it if you don't mind me doodling around on top of your work and sending you something! fun fun.
Thank you for your comments on Forgiveness. I'd never thought of the Cure - though I listened to their stuff when I was younger (in their heyday), I was never a huge fan. Interesting what seeps into the inspirational pool - influences one doesn't even realize one has! Thanks again for the listen.
See You In The Shadows…
Thanks so much for the kind words and I will surely be back to catch up on more of your songs soon!
Haha, sorry about that! But it is definitely different enough, and a slower tempo to Float On.
Wow thanks so much! So glad you could enjoy it 😀
oh, no sweat at all! don't bother rifling around to find something, I'm just always happy to sing over someone's throwaways, haha. the FAWM is still young!
Hahahah oh my gaaaaa! I totally thought you were using artistic license on the latte. Astounding scenes!! RIP Park Dairy 😞
You be inspired me to listen to / rip off hot club for the day, and it is very much enjoyable.
welcome back! you're off to a great start!
THAT FIRST TRACK SLAPS!!!
good to see you here again, looking forward to hearing your stuff! would definitely be down to collab again sometime, especially if you end up with an orphaned backing track.
Ooh, I really like that idea! I'll see if I can come up with something tomorrow to start us off.
On your marks....
You all set?
Hey Jed! I thought I'd left a message here earlier but clearly not! Looking forward to hearing you tear a sonic hole through February. Good luck buddy
Do you have any particular preferred collab methodology? It’s looking like I’m going to be too ill to do much singing the first weekend of Feb but I can definitely channel my Big Sick Energy into some collab ideas.
Looking forward to hearing more of your stuff this year!
Halloooooooo there, great to see you back:D
Hell yes. It's about time this happened.
FOURTEEN OF YOUR FINEST SONGS PLEASE
Yo! I'm going to get in early and try and bagsy a collab? Last year's was super fun, even if I am impressively poor at replying to emails punctuality..
30? It's only just started to get interesting.
