10th year for me!! A decade of FAWMING - Wow!!

I wonder how many songs I would never have written if it hadn’t been for FAWM and its sister “50/90”? I’m certainly a better songwriter for it.

Case in point - a song I wrote several 5090's back is being released this July as an international single for a local Australian Country Music artist named Andy Penkow (Aust, UK and Nashville).

This happened because he saw rough first draft lyrics that I had written during 5090 (while at a different songwriting workshop) and fell in love with some of them. So all you budding lyricists out there, don't give up!!

With a few tweaks here and there, we made it a 50/50 co-write and voila!!!


I haven't done too well on the last 1-2 5090's with Covid and life restructuring stuff, so hopefully I can get my mojo back on for 2022.

PLEASE NOTE - My feedback will be on lyrics, rather than music. I'm profoundly deaf and it's getting harder each year for me to hear music. I can get away with instrumentals, but I can't spend 20-30 mins reviewing songs like I used to.

Secondly - am usually happy to do a co-write, but talk to me about it first and we then we can go nutz!

Monster won't be rock though. Too obvious


Thanks for your suggestion of a verse 2 on “Nasty Lies.” At the time, I had nothing else to say - lol - but that could change.
