acousticmaddie 98

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.

  • @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! 😁

  • @yam655 1 week

    Interestingly, my take on "bodies and bucks" was explicitly not about human trafficking. It's about the other ways people sell their bodies. Manual laborers who get used up and discarded, their bodies destroyed by their work. Or worse, the military which in the US is a waiting line for homelessness and disability. It's not that human trafficking is the problem, it is that in terms of using-up-humanity-and-discarding it that is simply the least tolerable. How do we change that mentality? A mentality that says a body is just a body and it can always be replaced?

    So loved your emotive and expressive character delivery on Chernobyl memories. Even though I knew the lyrics I got chills and was disturbed. You did an awesome job! Just to let you know that I have not forgotten my end of the bargain! I have music and chords in my head so will do after the superskirmish ends. And as always thanks for your many comments! Harriet is a woman's name. One of my favorite characters growing up was "Harriet the Spy" a wonderfully empowering book for little girls. So not a common name but one I love!

    Improv theatre- ah! That makes sense. I know in instrumental improv it’s all about hearing it all and not getting stuck on mistakes, I just struggle to find that place when I’m recording my voice.
