2022 is my 11th FAWM, and I have done the 50/90 10 times. Have made it past 14 the last 3 years.
I write some comedy songs, some just whatever songs (most usually have a "gentle humour"), sometimes a kids' song and maybe some short instrumentals and sketches. I like writing songs about everyday things.
Some songs are recording-only songs that I couldn't possibly do live but I also try to get some "keepers" for live gigs (where I perform mostly in the context of comedy nights with "original comedy singalong songs" or my favourite gigs - with friends round a campfire)
I have no idea what will come out of this month and I'm looking forward to some games, skirmishes and challenges.
Most of all I just like being part of it.
songs from previous FAWMs and 50/90s are on my website:
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
