Hello, my name is Joe, and this is my fourth FAWM!
I keep my "Soundtrack" type of music here. -> https://soundcloud.com/joemccullough
And my "Singer-Songwriter" / Your Average Joe music here . -> https://soundcloud.com/youraveragejoe...
Not sure what will happen this time, I've recently moved overseas again to Germany. Life is a bit strange at the moment, but hopefully that will be my creative advantage this year!
I've been looking forward to FAWM since March. 😀 I can't wait to hear new songs from familiar names again now in 2020!
My wife @linzwolf decided to join in on the fun this year. 😀

Thank you for your comment on 'You Just be You', and congrats on your win too!
Thanks for the kind words on my song. 😀
Thanks and I had forgotten about that song! Maybe in my sub-conscience?
Question - on your 'Little Soft Song', i was wondering if you mind if I sample the sound of you hitting the mic or whatever that was in the very beginning?? It would make a killer kick drum sound 😀
Happy you liked our Europe collab. I've been weighing my options about moving out of America as well. Gonna try to figure out if it makes sense for me. I hope you enjoy Germany.
Glad you enjoyed my skirmish take. I love doing those. Been rehearsing for a live show tonight but I’ll be back writing ASAP
Thanks for the listen and comment on "Days" I appreciate it.
Thanks for your comment on Baby Group - glad the panning worked! Really appreciate your support 🙂
Thanks Joe! It was fun to do the offset lines towards the end of ‘These Four Walls’, glad you liked it! Am so grateful to zecoop for the drums he provided, think they completely lift the songs to a different level.
Thanks for your nice comments!
Thanks for your kind comments on “Beautiful Day,” means a lot. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!
I was thinking more about the technique of playing it - they’re not all plucked sounds, some are extremely short bows, and some others are col legno (use the wood of the bow rather than the hair)... both difficult to achieve and pull off well! But very effective!
Thanks for your comment! Favourite Cake songs???
Hey there! My random collab partner is going to do vocals on that tune, but feel free to also do it. I’ve always wanted to hear multiple versions of the same song by vocalists. If not, no worries. Thank you!
Thanks so much for your supportive feedback on my skirmish song, "Sexy Little Cat Eyes."
Thank you for your kind comments on You're Fired. I appreciate your input.
Thank you kindly for your comments on my song!
Thank you for your great comment on Horror In The Museum. I really appreciate you loving the BPM.
See You In The Shadows…
Super excited to hear all you come up with! Your genre-bending, how your voice gets stronger and stronger, can't wait to hear the new territories you reach this year!
Have a great FAWM Joe!
That's awesome! Our son works/lives in Berrien Springs now as a special ed teacher. I love that area. 😀
Thank you so much... I really appreciate that. Where did you grow up in the Mitten State? I was in Stevensville (by St Joe/Benton Harbor) as a kid and then lived between Lansing and Flint through high school.
Hey there! Just checked out one of your songs on Soundcloud, it was pretty sweet. I enjoy good synth. Did you say you were trying to write music for a fantasy book? I used to do a ton of that, been a while but I still like the concept. 😁
Thanks for your note! Cool to see you on board again. Looking forward to a great FAWM!
I would imagine that we could! That would be great to have another collaboration. Do you just see what happens, or do you do anything to prep for fawm?
Yeah that one that you did using words from Milton was so mind blowing to me. Completely out of my previous understanding of how singers think and perform. Just so cool.
