Artist Bio

Influences:   Bluegrass and roots music, Mainline church hymnody

I'm a pastor in the United Church of Christ, a denomination on the liberal side of things (not Church of Christ) and have been putting together bluegrass music and progressive theology to make songs that regular people can sing, both in terms of the tune and in terms of what it's saying.

I'm new to FAWM and coming in late, so I may be using this month to finish some songs that I've already made progress on, but haven't had a chance to buckle down and write up. Thanks for understanding!

    @moonraccoon Glad you liked the edit! I tried to keep the same basic idea...

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 26

    Thank you so much for the vocal track for Tentative! The slight adjustment that adapted @oneslowtyper's words to your sensibility have made it work incredibly well. I should be posting it tomorrow (Monday) πŸ˜€

    @moonraccoon thanks for the head's up. Resending. #facepalm

    Hi Amy πŸ˜€ I got your email, but the vocal track was not attached.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 22

    Just also to add, I've noticed that your link here to your bandcamp site doesn't work, it says: "This site can’t be reached". Please try this one:

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 22

    Hi Amy, thank you so much for collaborating with you. I love your vision for my music. Your reading and singing and beautiful and your lyrics are very poignant. I've sent you my message via Bandcamp.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    @sjbatavia Thanks so much! Yes, if I have one that's a "hit" that's probably it. Thanks for listening!

  • @amysens Feb 21

    @musicsongwriter Thanks! I have it on my computer and am going to try and download it to my phone today. I have the bandcamp app but for whatever reason that particular song isn't showing up for me on my phone..... Looking forward to it!

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 16

    It's free to download now, you can chose MP3 or Wav, MP3 takes less space. They have good quality MP3 opportunity so you can go for MP3 if you prefer.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 16

    Hi Amy, I'll make my music free for download, please let me know when you downloaded it.
    I don't have the chance to send you a message as it's not on your profile. Please feel free to message me via fawm or my bandcamp. I clicked on your bandcamp but the link seems to be broken for some reason. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks for commenting on "There's a Hole in the Ground".
    I know it not FAWM, but a really like the song "We'll All Stand Together". Really nice stuff.

  • @amysens Feb 16

    @pambowen1 Sure thing! @tamsnumber4 actually pointed me to you πŸ˜€ I know it's not easy to include spiritual themes in a song. With hymns it's maybe a little more expected....

  • @tamsnumber4 Feb 15

    I only suggested it because during FAWM, you have a world of inspiration at your fingertips. Listening to others art opens you up to moving yourself into a creative direction you never considered before, I have found it helpful as a songwriter, so I suggested it.

  • @pambowen1 Feb 14

    Thanks for reading "Let Me Pour for You" and commenting. I see you are writing some hymns. Many of my lyrics are faith-based, so I hope you like them.

  • @amysens Feb 14

    @musicsongwriter Yes! If there's a way to send me a file for the Quiet Song for You, I have some lyrics floating in my head. Thanks!

  • @amysens Feb 14

    Thanks so much @tamsnumber4 ! I'm not as worried about the actual writing part as much as figuring out the mechanics of the website. Like, is there a way to e-mail files to each other, or some kind of collaboration space? Anyway, thanks so much for taking the time - it's an interesting thought - commenting so people will listen. I already feel like there's a lot involved just with the writing part, before jumping into a whole new online community!

  • @tamsnumber4 Feb 12

    I hope you can get around the board and comment to bring folks in to listen to your songs. I highly suggest you reading the wonderful lyrics of the very talented @pambowen1 and I am sure on her page you will find others that are writing in a similar vein as yourself. As for your question on how to put lyrics to posted music on Nadia's song, she would send you the music and you can record over it. Best thing to do is to count it out by singing "La's" or numbers and then once you get how long lines would be, then you can write into it and record over her track, if you need mixing help, then you can ask for that in the FAWM Forums. Good Luck.

    Hi Amy, thank you for listening to my piece and suggesting to create your lyrics to it. I think it works individually depending on a songwriter's preference. For me personally I usually listen to the music and find the words which in my mind go with the music. It will be lovely to collaborate. Please let me know if you would like me to add you.
    Thank you.
