Influences: Ed Sheeran, Jann Arden, Van Morrison, Joan Armatrading, Paul Simon, Mozart.
I discovered the joy of songwriting at a Ladies' Rock Camp some years ago. I play a little piano, and I've sung in various community choirs over the years. My recording skills are limited, so I let Sibelius (my notation software) 'play' the piano for me on my tracks, but I love writing songs.
This past year, I focused solely on writing choral pieces. I've written three now. The choir I sing in performed my Christmas song in December. I can't describe how great that felt, and I'm so grateful to my choir director, Irene Percival, for asking me to write it. She mentored me in the beginning, until I took the online Coursera course "Write Like Mozart: An Introduction to Classical Music Composition". It took me 18 months to write that Christmas song, so I'm very slow. This is my third FAWM, and I'll be happy to end up with 4 or 5 new songs to flesh out over the next year.
Thank you Audrey for your kind, kind comments on Darkness and Shadows. Glad you liked it, much appreciated.
I'm excited to hear it - you've done an exceptional job and put in lots of hard work. The earlier mp3 was lovely but your voice will make it so much better.
Thank you for your kind feedback on my song "hornby island". peace!
Thanks so much for your kind and generous words on my song 'same way the river flows '. It's so gratifying (and mind blowing ) to know that something I created in my own little world can then be uploaded and heard, acknowledged & appreciated by fellow musicians /artists around the world . It's beautiful ! Thankyou 🙏
Thank you so much for your kind words, means a lot to me
Ah, OK, thanks for the explanation. The music sounds classically inspired and I'm unfamiliar with Sibelius music notation software. I'm glad you liked the lyric enough to write music for it.
Thanks Audrey for listening and kind comments on my song 'it's starting to get interesting now '. I sure do appreciate it ! 😊🙏
Thanks for the kind words for my Another Singer Songwriter. The First verse has been in my head for years, but could never do anything with it. Crazy stuff this Songwriting.
