Hello, my name is Joe, and this is my third FAWM!

I had a fantastic time last FAWM, @Pinky and I even released a collab album shortly after!

Not sure what will happen this time, but it's bound to be fun. πŸ˜€ Looking forward to hearing and reading the communities songs!

    Oh thank you so much Joe! Can't believe you listened to all of my songs! If you ever make it back to Germany I'll buy you a drink!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 28

    Thanks for your comments on all my lyrics! With the Sycamore one, I put that photo on Facebook, alone with that song. Where does time go?

  • @pinky Feb 28

    Man! So honored for all the music you made with me! I even made it halfway thanks to you(: Congrats on all your songs and an awesome FAWM!

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 27

    Thanks for the great comment on "Eternal Repetition"

  • @cindyrella  Feb 27

    Thanks for your nice comments on Ivy's Walls.

  • @mkd  Feb 20

    Thanks so much for your kind words on I Got To - it really was a quick one-take attempt to get something done in a very short space of time, and away from my normal kit, so I’m delighted that you found it enjoyable to listen to!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 19

    Thanks so much for listening to "Friend or Foe" and leaving such a nice comment. I appreciate it so much and am glad you connected with it.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 18

    Do it!!! Yessir!

  • @mmmmarcus Feb 17

    Thank you very much for the comment on Fuck The Pain Away! Glad to hear you enjoyed the track πŸ˜€

  • @aesthetic72 Feb 17

    Thank you so much for your comment on There'll Be Roses. I especially appreciated your note about keeping the topic the same as the original instrumental. I felt like it was a fairly easy fit since the music is so on point. πŸ˜€ Happy FAWMing!

  • @mmmmarcus Feb 11

    Thank you very much for the nice comment on Carry Me Home! I don't have as much time this year, but I intend to write a few songs at least. Feels great to create again.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 9

    Thanks for your comments on my meltin' blues song!

  • @zecoop  Feb 2019

    Thanks for checking out the creepy subway song! I added some freaky guitar and remixed, so now it is about 1000 times more creepy, in case you wanted to check that out, lol. πŸ˜€

  • @owl  Feb 2019

    Thanks very much for listening to "Chinese New Year"! I realized when I woke up to the flurry of comments about how abruptly the song ended that I accidentally cut off the outro (with time signature change!) when exporting. I have fixed it, along with the bass thing that was bothering me that nobody else noticed πŸ˜€ Just thought I'd let you know. I will be back to check out what you've been up to later on! I hope you got back to Madison safely--haven't been outside to check out the condition of the roads yet, but it was nasty last night.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 2019

    Thank you so much for listening to "Tidal Wave" and leaving such a kind comment. It was an emotional one for me... so thank you.

  • @s7even  Feb 2019

    Thank you for the kind words on β€œwhat do you say?” They are definitely appreciated.

  • @cicpisces Feb 2019

    Thanks for your words on my lyric 'Clean Slate' . Glad it made you think. πŸ˜€

  • @ampersandman  Feb 2019

    Dude, you're prolific!
    Will have a listen at your work as soon as I get headphones for the office. Looking forward to it!

  • @guatecoop  Feb 2019

    Do it! Sold to the man in Wisconsin !!

  • @jorh Feb 2019

    Thankyou for your kind words on my songs - I’m glad you liked the story, I thought it might be a bit too general in parts!

  • @carmenmorgan13 Feb 2019

    Thank you for commenting on my song unkempt! Trying to be starting up hard this Feb, but hot dog, you are doing awesome!

  • @pinky Feb 2019

    Wow! You hit the ground running! Excited to listen to all the new music you create and exploit that creativity in some collabs, haha

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2019

    Thanks for asking about the art in this song:

    I just found the polar bear picture via a Google search and added text.

  • @faststrings Feb 2019

    Where goin' with that song in your hand?
    Happy FAWM 2019!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2019

    Joe! I'm so used to thinking of you as "Your Average Joe" that I didn't remember your name here was 'unkept'. Have a great FAWM!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2019

    Oh yes, that sounds great! I’m kind of similar as I try to mix up and layer sounds and styles as much as possible.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    Welcome back - glad to see you! Looking forward to this FAWM craziness and to your new stuff. πŸ˜€

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2019

    Hey there! Thanks for checking in! Yes, I think that this will be a good one and I’m also looking forward to hearing your creations, too. Any focus this year, or just whatever happens?

  • @marthie Jan 2019
