What is FAWM?
FAWM stands for February Album Writing Month, in which thousands of musicians across the globe all come together to attempt to write an album's worth of music (about 14 tracks). In 2015 I got involved with a similar organization, RPM, and wrote 35 minutes of original music. 2017 was the first year I decided to involve myself with the FAWM camp, and always have a little more fun than normal four weeks out of the year. This is an archive of my FAWM projects, I hope you enjoy!

This year is a little different. I've been influenced by certain styles of music and I have made it my goal this year to step out the box and see what I am capable of. This year is about style, trying to perfect a diverse sound palette while still maintaining my ideas of harmony and grooves. The following is the result of such.
1. Establish connections with student performers
2. Build a brand and an image, social media presence.
3. Write music! Can't be that hard, right?
In 2017, I challenged myself to write original music for 4 weeks straight. Not only that, but to also handle A/V equipment, contact performers, and to build and manage a social media presence.
