I'm John (he/him) and I love collaborations! Please comment below FIRST and follow up with an email using the link in my profile if you'd like to get connected. That should ensure that I don't miss it!

I'm a singer/songwriter living and performing in Minneapolis. My primary instrument is guitar (electric or acoustic), but I can also provide bass, vocals, mixing, and general songwriting. I'm fortunate to play in a local band and collaborate with other local musicians to write, record, and produce original music. I'm heavily influenced by #90s alternative rock since it's what I "grew up on". I'm not sure if I'm stuck in it, or it's stuck in me, but it definitely pervades much of what I create.

I've had a FAWM account since 2013 but have ended up skipping many years due to another time-consuming passion: filmmaking. FAWM 2022 was very successful for me and I'm looking forward to this one as well.

During FAWM 2022 I had a hand in 15 songs, which was so much fun. Some of those are linked in my profile above. I also had a personal challenge to use every one of my guitars (and failed). If you and I work together on something, I'm happy to let you choose which guitar I use. Here's a link to a photo album of them in case one provides inspiration: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YVGMuxuR8PqD4bzy5

Let's rock!

Hi, we're teamed up in the Video Collaboration Challenge. I will write you a mail where we can discuss with the others how to proceed.

Hi, John! I had posted the link to the cup holder in the studio photo thread, I tagged you there so you can see it. 🙂

Have an amazing FAWM!

Yay 🥳 I started this topic 10 years ago and it's still hard for me to write a song in a specific mode. I cannot force, it just happens.

If you take a deeper look into "Waiting for a train", you'll notice that it's mixolydian. No voodoo here :)

Thank you - glad to see you are back! I look forward to listening to your creations. Happy FAWM!

@ericalbert made me blush - just a bit. That flattery means we're going to collaborate so I guess it worked, ha!

Thanks for your Studio One tips. And I can't wait to hear more of your music. Just listened to "May/October" and loved it: your voice, the guitar sound, the mix, the rise and fall, the harmonies, the acoustic / electric switches, the casual/cool vibe with the underpinning of hurt. And the tossed off "didn't hit you, though" -- just great! I'd love to collaborate on something -- let me know what you could use. I'm brand new to FAWM and haven't yet learned how this collaboration thing can go.

Thanks John. I will reach out when I get stuck. Two bald heads are definitely better than one! You're now on my watchlist!

Happy FAWM, John!! It was so lovely to *meet* you during FAWMstock! I hope you have loads of inspiration for both music and your filmmaking.

@datsch
I think you should play all the Cs on the red Fly, all the C#s on the Steinberger, and so on -- looks like you've got about three octaves' worth ... 😂

@nadine
It may be a GRAND idea to try some harpsiCHORDs. Let's do the 4track. I don't want to start another collab as we still have some running.

@nadine
Sure you can start the chain. I have to miss out the first week because of my exam.
