Let’s Go Dancin – FAWM 2009

This is a “Got the music before the lyrics” song. Tried recording in a different way, so it will sound slightly different. Lyrics: Sittin at the homestead – Not sure what to do It’s a Friday night, the air feel right for a party with the group.

Tell Me Why – FAWM 2009

I was working on my solo show for this weekend when this song popped in. It’s mostly a song for a friend who lost someone a long time ago. *Warning* it is one of my darker songs.

I have decided to add my FAWM progress over here. When I put out a new song, it’ll go up on Dorkazine. FAWM stands for February Album Writing Month – the goal is to write 14 songs in 28 days. It has been going on for 4 years. I have done 3 of those. This first song is called “TV Show”. Keep in mind the audio is slapped together quickly. While it doesn’t sound horrible, it isn’t perfect.
