If You Were Looking by Michael Gutierrez-May (with Mark Dabney)
During FAWM 2012 this year, I collaborated with Michael Gutierrez-May, a Massachusetts based musician and songwriter. We were paired randomly as part of a FAWM challenge, each of us putting our names in a virtual hat and winding up together. A day or two later, Michael had lyrics together and sent them my way for music. They’re so uplifting, which is way different than the death, doom, and gloom I normally write. I spent a couple days trying a few different approaches, and finally worked this out version out. This was recorded on February 17th. It’s a driving 2 acoustic guitar track with a melodica. Yep. Melodica.
Michael put this up on Jango radio under Michael Gutierrez-May.
He recently told me he put together this video for the song, which is rad as hell.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
