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

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

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


I'm going into this year without too much in terms of plans. I'd like to play more acoustic guitar this year, and write songs in German. I'm living here and learning the language, and a little creativity should help with that goal. 😀 Maybe even a little Spanish again, as that's the next language I would like to learn.

Looking forward to another year with my FAWM friends. 😁

Since this is the year '21... I decided to create an album name for this year, I've never done that before! 14 songs in 2021. 14-21 is the...

The Age of Majoerity

    Thanks for the comment on "Monolithic Halls"! If you want to hear more metal, I've got you covered, I wrote particularly metal-orientedly this year, earlier years FAWM has been an outlet to try my wings outside of my comfort zone, which happens to be metal. Then again, I've also been trying to come up with new materials for my bands and "Monolithic Halls" in particular was a success on that front.

    Hey! Thank you! You too! 😊

  • @quork  Jan 19

    Thanks, @unkept . In previous years I’ve written a couple of heavily Tom Waits-influenced songs. Bowie is more aspirational. I look forward to hearing your output.

  • @quork  Jan 19

    Loving the album name!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 18
