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

I keep my "Soundtrack" type of music here. ->

And my "Singer-Songwriter" / Your Average Joe music here . ->


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. 😀

    @unkept thanks for reading You Could Have Walked Away and I am glad to hear that there is an air of ambiguity to the lyric, and thanks for the so-kind words! I am really looking forward to making time to listen to and read so, so many songs, yours included! We did it! Yay!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 28

    Thank you for your comment on 'You Just be You', and congrats on your win too!

  • @lisamarie777 Feb 21

    Thanks for the kind words on my song. 😀

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Thanks and I had forgotten about that song! Maybe in my sub-conscience?

  • @splittybooms  Feb 15

    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 😀

  • @spunky4455 Feb 14

    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.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 14

    Glad you enjoyed my skirmish take. I love doing those. Been rehearsing for a live show tonight but I’ll be back writing ASAP

  • @porrectus  Feb 13

    Thanks for the listen and comment on "Days" I appreciate it.

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 13

    Thanks for your comment on Baby Group - glad the panning worked! Really appreciate your support 🙂

  • @mikeymason  Feb 10

    (sorry. oops!)

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 9

    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.

  • @wingandwaltz  Feb 9

    @unkept thanks for checking out Circle of Fifths 😀 appreciate the feedback!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 9

    Thanks for your nice comments!

  • @wingandwaltz  Feb 7

    @unkept thanks for kind words on Hello Heyday! 😊 I recorded a semi hideous representation of it and slapped it up today. Never put a recorded version of a song up! Woohoo me, lol

  • @aflinner  Feb 6

    Thanks for your kind comments on “Beautiful Day,” means a lot. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 4

    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!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 3

    Thanks for your comment! Favourite Cake songs???

  • @guatecoop  Feb 3

    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!

  • @treble Feb 2

    Thanks so much for your supportive feedback on my skirmish song, "Sexy Little Cat Eyes."

  • @srcoops  Feb 2

    Thank you for your kind comments on You're Fired. I appreciate your input.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2

    Thank you kindly for your comments on my song!

  • @candle  Feb 2

    Thank you for your great comment on Horror In The Museum. I really appreciate you loving the BPM.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @pinky Feb 1

    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!

  • @andygetch  Jan 24

    Have a great FAWM Joe!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 24

    Happy FAWMing!!!

  • @zecoop  Jan 24

    That's awesome! Our son works/lives in Berrien Springs now as a special ed teacher. I love that area. 😀

  • @linzwolf Jan 24

    Hi! <3

  • @zecoop  Jan 24

    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.

  • @tawny249  Jan 18

    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. 😁

  • @ampersandman  Jan 14

    Thanks for your note! Cool to see you on board again. Looking forward to a great FAWM!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 13

    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?

  • @guatecoop  Jan 9

    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.
