John Fausett - Singer/Songwriter

I was born and (mostly) raised in Long Beach, CA...spent my high school years in Coeur d'Alene, ID...earned a B.S. degree in meteorology at the University of Utah (Salt Lake City, UT)...had a 10 year span as a TV meteorologist (7 of those as chief meteorologist) in El Paso, TX...and the last 25+ years have been in the National Weather Service (west Texas, Arizona and New Mexico). I met my beautiful bride "In The Mountains of New Mexico" (selection #12 on the Southwestern Splendor CD), even though we grew up about 30 miles apart in southern California. I didn't start writing songs until I was 21, when a friend in college got tired of me putting my own lyrics to popular songs of that era. "Why don't you just write your own songs?" Hmmmmm. 

The 60s and 70s are my Musical Roots

Weather hazards, the Desert Southwest, various relationships, following the's all here! Maybe you'll be inspired to become a songwriter, too! Be prepared for 70s style harmonies.
