I play piano, guitar and bass, and occasionally sing. I am able to write songs when given the opportunity, but often have trouble getting inspired.

This is my sixth year of FAWM.

FAWM 2017: 14/14 songs. Half of those songs were older songs written before 2017, but I still managed to get 14 in. Most of these songs ended up on my debut album "The Beginning".
FAWM 2018: 14/14 songs. Most of these songs are still in an incomplete state.
FAWM 2019: 15 songs. This was a concept album about communication and friendship.
FAWM 2020: 15 songs (one blank).
FAWM 2021: 15 songs (14 complete songs, plus 1 placeholder).
FAWM 2022 - 14 songs, but I feel like I could have done a bit more since one is a private song (near blank), and another is an instrumental that later got fleshed out as a separate song.

I seldom leave "thank you" comments on other FAWMers' soundboards. Therefore, if you leave a comment on one of my songs, I will do likewise on one of yours.

Equipment:
Casio CTK-620L 61-key keyboard
Yamaha PSR-EW400 76-key keyboard
Yamaha P-125 digital piano
Martinez MD-33 TSB steel-string acoustic guitar
SX Precision bass guitar
Monterey MGS-14 electric guitar
Acoustica Mixcraft 8
Steinberg UR22 MkII audio interface
Audacity

Been very unwell indeed! But recovering now! Homeless for a while waiting for new house to be finished. End of Sept before I get full studio up and running and get podcast back up.

Thanks for checking out Bright Spot! Glad you liked it.

I loved what you said about "the despair" of the lyrics on "Into the Well." That's what I was going for! Thanks!

Hope you're feeling better.
Thanks for collaborating with me on Beyond Repair. I like what you did.
Fits the words very well. Keep me in mind to collaborate again on something else in the future.

Hi Edward, thanks for your thoughts on “Into the Well”. 😊 Your confirmation that I managed to support the lyrics is highly appreciated.
