acousticmaddie 110

Artist Bio

Influences:   Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits

My name is Maddie, but I work under acousticmaddie (so if we collabed please use Acousticmaddie) , I live in Sweden and study songwriting/Music production.
I play guitar, keyboard, ukulele, harmonica and learning bass guitar. I am mainly in the folklore genre and I do voice acting (If you need voice acting I'd love to do it specially if they are weird or (yeah again) dark environment or characters!). 2017 was my first FAWM and although when I entered I thought I would be able to make 2-3 songs in total it(thanks to the lovely encouraging environment) ended up with 44. Of which I also used a few for further productions.
My goal for this year is to get to 14. Everything above is just a bonus.

I do love to collab, but PLEASE READ THIS FIRST:
1: prefer to be asked before someone grab my lyrics or music.
2: Want us to keep our separate rights, and understanding that I might use my lyrics/music further on in productions of my own.
3; I Also ask you kindly to RESPECT THE ART- which means that I do NOT want my lyrics rewritten unless we agreed on that before the collab starts. (We might think different things are good but we are working with art and thats very personal
But please tell me trough mail if you want to sing on something and think it need changes.
I m open to ease up things for singers if agreed before we put our name on it)

TW: I don't do lovestories and I can be pretty blunt in my telling with sound effects and words. I do seldom write happy-endings course I look at music as art and love it when my songs gives you a feeling that stays.

I also will focus on weird, dark stories so If you had a weird dream or just a dark tale.Please don't hesitate to scribble it down for me to put music to.

    Hi Maddie. Thank you so much for all of the listens. Super congratulations on over 100 quality songs in FAWM. I struggle to find an adequate adjective to describe how absolutely and infinitely amazing that accomplishment is.

  • @writeandwrong  1 day

    @acousticmaddie Thank you for your kind comments on my songs and congratulations to you... 105 songs????!!! 700 comments! You are the FAWM Queen of 2018!!! Damn, girl!!! Kudos to you!!!! You rock!

  • @mmmmarcus  1 day

    Thank you very much for the nice words on the collab with @benjo ! I took a short break from some work tasks and felt like acoustic rock (maybe it's been swinging like that all FAWM really, today it was first some angry Thrash Metal in the morning then acoustic softness the next track).

    And thank you, now I'm done. 14 songs. Wow. Your support has been SUPER during FAWM. This was so addictive.

  • @benjo  1 day

    hey thank you so much for your kind words on i made it rain on us

    wow you have been busy some great work
    im coming back to check some more out
    keep em coming

  • @mmmmarcus  1 day

    Vad kul att den svenska låten blivit så uppskattad! Tack tack, Gessle är ju grym låtskrivare. Jag tänkte mig mer typ Bo Kaspers/Uno Svenningson kanske, men Gessle funkar absolut 😀

  • @mmmmarcus  1 day

    Absolutely no worries! I'm working a bit on another collab track now, and yeah I'm hoping that cello will be epic. It's gonna be a less serious power ballad with a dinosaur theme 😀

  • @mmmmarcus  1 day

    Thank you very much for continued support through FAWM and the comment on the latest track. I realize Thrash Metal isn't everyone's cup of tea. I was just feeling like making another angry track, haha. It's been really really fun jumping between different genres for this challenge, kinda helps to stay fresh and not write the same song all over (I sometimes get in a rut and re-use similar ideas).

    And thanks, but not there yet. The collab with Michelle is counted twice, so it was my 13th song. The one I wanna have cello on is done besides the cello, so lets hope my friend is available tomorrow and that one is coming up here as well.

    Hi Madde, thanks for those cool comments on Put It On Repeat. I see you're past a 100 song! O My Dog! That's amazing... is there anyone else on FAWM that has soooooo incredibly many songs up? You're on my watchlist so everytime I open FAWM it says "@acousticmaddie has a new song." There ought to be an award for Most Prolific Writer.

  • @dragondreams  1 week

    The eight string is a lot of fun, Maddie. I have mine tuned with a B and an F# below the bottom E string. I'm into bass territory when I need some extra grunt without swapping instruments. It also has a slightly longer scale length so the strings don't get too slack at the bottom end. It certainly gives my fingers a good workout! The neck feels about as wide as a pool table! 😁
