Influences: singer songwriters, indie rockers, noise makers and disturbers of the peace.
2020 will be my 13th FAWM. I hope that's not a curse.
After a few years of either not participating, or participating very lightly, I returned to FAWM in 2018 with renewed interest. That year I wrote a new batch of songs that inspired the creation of a record, which I put out in 2019, Lonesome After Dark- Exit Signs. You can check it out any of the streaming services as well as here:
Bringing It All Back Home by Dylan is my idea this year. Half electric/half acoustic. Either that or a GBV Alien Lanes kind of thing.
Happy to be back here. Love this community.
Thanks for the listen and comments 😀
Todd, I really have to thank you for what you wrote about my latest song because I was feeling seriously vulnerable and thinking of rethinking it and taking it down. But man, what you wrote was magnificent, being deeply personal but universal was how I was hoping it would be perceived, thank you.
hey Todd thanks for all the nice feedback as always. And yea you are right I borrowed heavily from Neil on Charlotte. Whether its intentional or not, I like to say inspired and/or influenced... 😀
I'm not good at original melody, and i often fall into familiar chord progression... When is the next Todd song?
Hey Todd (revisited), thanks for the good words on “Dante’s Inferno”. It was a nice surprise that you compared the guitar to GBV because I’ve been revisiting their early stuff as an inspiration lately as I think about doing a homemade record. Guess it’s been rubbing off. Looking forward to hearing what’s on your musical mind this year.
Hey Todd, welcome back to FAWM and thanks again for introducing me to it all those years ago. I'm looking forward to hearing new tunes from you that maybe I'll hear live from you some day in a listening room somewhere. Here's to a Lucky No. 13 for you!
Hey Todd! Great to see you back! I'm looking forward to hearing some new tunes from you.
It is definitely different here - We'll see how it affects songwriting. The irony is that we're head back to MN for 10 days this month so we'll also see how the weather shock affects the songwriting. 😀
Hey Todd. from reading your BIO it looks like you are on board again in 2020? Awesome to hear. Cant wait. I am once again I'm in AZ for half the month, then travel back to MN in mid-month. i will probably get 4-5 songs at best. good luck to you on the new record
