These tracks were selected from the 17 songs I wrote as part of the FAWM challenge early 2015. The object to this challenge was simple, write 14 songs in 28 days. I ended up writing 17 of which 4 were collabs.
Most songs were recorded the day after they were written. The tracks on this EP received best critical acclaim. On the EP is one bonus-track, a collab with my dear friend Timothy Ray Echols who wrote the lyrics and planned on recording an up-tempo version until he heard my rendition, which he said reminded him of the musical stylings of Townes Van Zandt.
I been called worse...
