Artist Bio

Influences:   Anything I can hear.

2nd FAWM...and the highlight of my year.

I think what I love best about FAWM is that I don't have to worry about believing in myself - I have this big safety net of FAWMly that does that for me and encourages me to live and jump off cliffs and soar and fly except when they don't.

Music is my first language. Singer/Songwriter/Composer/Arranger ...Low tech for the moment, but learning everything I can. I enjoy collaborations. Message me if you you see something of mine you'd like to work with.

A video of one of my electronic works, set to pictures of my son. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wIgV...

I own and play an autoharp. Here's a video of me playing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qATgt...

    Thanks for the comments on Can't sleep.
    "I like that the guitar sounds like clock ticking." 😲 unintended genius on that one one I guess!! I didn't even notice. 🤣

    Hey T, I can do either #32 Good Golden Gondola, cause I owe ya 😀, or How Do You Love Someone You Hate, cause well I owe ya, or both just for the ying and yang of it. LMK how you would like to proceed 😀

    Hi- thanks for watch listing me neighbor! Nice to meet you too! I wil start listening to your offerings..many offerings! Wow!!
    I am going to do the next superskirmish at 2 pm. Maybe I will "see" you there?

  • @redlady8029 1 day

    Hi
    This is wonderful. You did a fantastic job. I am blown away by your rendition. WOW that's all I can say.!!!! I literally have tears in my eyes. You captured the essence of the lyric and you get me.

    PS: Can we work together some more.

  • @dutch1967 2 days

    Gee, thanks for sharing the song in Recommended! Awesome you would like it SO much!!

  • @dutch1967 2 days

    Thank you! For commenting on Dream Your Life. This took some doing. Gotta say it turned out just about the way I first heard it when I read Tim's words. Wish I was a better singer but I shouldn't complain.

    Glad you liked it 😀. Just breathe

    oh BTW T, if I can help put any of your lyrics to music go ahead and name me as collaborator 😀

  • @marthie 2 days

    I tried "Just Breathe" my pc/cookies won't let me add you as collaborator now- I will try again later

    Really nice to hear that you like "Who Will." I agree: These lyrics are awesome from @negasi.

  • @heuristicsinc  3 days

    Oh, so you end up with two versions of the song on your page? One with lyrics and one without? I've not done this before but I thought people generally added to the existing song.

  • @heuristicsinc  3 days

    I sent you an email with a link to a tentative track for "Ice" - although I realized I forgot to master the file so I don't want to post it until later. How does it work to update a lyric-only song with an mp3?

  • @laotranati 3 days

    Thanks for your comment on my take on Storm winds, aaaaaaand I just saw your list of songs and I'm suffering some kind of FAWM-envy, 80 songs! WOW! Congrats 😀

  • @raygungirls  3 days

    Glad you like what I did with your words! It's definitely a rockin' tune.

  • @jacobeverettwallace  1 week

    Thanks for filling in for me! You're a lifesaver. 😁 One of the most frustrating days I've had in awhile...so your topic title was apropos. Thanks again!

  • @jibbidy34  1 week

    Hey tasha, thanks for listening to Loser Lover (vile skirmish) and for your kind words. I'm sorry I haven't managed to read more of your lyrics this time round. 50/90 always feels easier somehow and this feels so rushed! Anyway happy skirmishing x

  • @arthurrossi 1 week

    Once again I owe you a BIG, BIG thanks for all your wonderful, enduring, encouraging support! You are way, way too kind, my friend...

  • @vomvorton  1 week

    'Death of a Loveseat' is coming along nicely, just trying to work out whether to attempt a Vincent Price impression or whether it sounds too ridiculous 😀 should get it finished tomorrow, will you add me as collaborator? Or shall I post it as a new song?

  • @musicsongwriter 1 week

    Thank you so much Tasha for your brilliant skirmish title. I wasn't going to write anything about the failing to record but your prompt really helped me express what I was feeling while trying to record my music. Thank you for your support.

  • @sjbatavia 1 week

    Thanks for the comment on I Can't Stand You. I wish this could have been more electric punk!

  • @tootoobee  1 week

    H @brrrse, sorry that I have been absent, fell down in my usual FAWM "depression" that hits me any time I do FAWM ("my stuff just sucks, I can't write songs, I can't sing, the others are just SOOO great, just stop it..."). I just can't listen to other song then, it'll tear me further down. Only thing that helps is writing another song. But I think I'm over it now. 😉 Hopefully.
    BTW, it's the first time I stared the Morph chain, I'd have rather left that to somebody else (cause I don't feel as the Morph specialist) but nobody started it the first days and so I jumped in. Cause I love morphing, it's a real challenge and I always learn a lot.

  • @johncrossman  1 week

    Oh, yeah, and morphs are weird. People either stumble on them and don't know what it is or, like me, I feel like I have to start at the start and work my way through so I can see the song evolve. It's one of my favorite challenges.

    I also have to say, you're killin' it this year! Again! Fawm on. 😀

  • @jwhanberry  1 week

    Thanks for listening and commenting on "Truth". I see you're in Tacoma. When I lived in Seattle I played at Jazzbone's and Cole's before it burnt down. Good times.

  • @musicsongwriter 1 week

    Thank you Tasha, I've sent my message to you. Please let me know if you've opened the tracks ok. One is via google drive, sometimes it's not opening. If there is a problem I'll use another way of sending.
    Thank you again for your kind messages.
    Nadia

  • @musicsongwriter 1 week

    Thank you so much Tasha, I'm delighted you like my music. I absolutely fell in love with your lyric and it's usually not my way of creating music to a lyric without asking but you wrote your beautiful notes which gave me the courage. Thank you so much. I'll record my rough vocals and will send them to you as soon as I have them recorded. I sincerely hope you feel better soon. It is frustrating to have sore throat. Please take care and avoid the temptation to sing.
    Nadia

  • @musicsongwriter 1 week

    Hi Tasha, I've posted my piano track to your beautiful lyric. Thank you for the inspiration.

  • @insaneian 1 week

    Hi there! Thanks for the kind words on my songs, and for busting the two Zongs I had! Also...HOLY COW! 58 songs done! WOW. Congrats!

  • @dutch1967 1 week

    O! That makes me so happy and proud to hear you say that about One Step Back. I really thought the title was a kind of in contradiction with the happy feel of the song and that's what made me like it so.
    Glad you like my effort to write a happity song.

  • @vomvorton  1 week

    I love your 'Death of a Loveseat'! May I have a go at coming up with some kind of atmospheric track to read it over?

  • @gvgeis 1 week

    Thank you for your comments on Dammit! Isle. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it so. I'd insisted to Mr. Wordsmith for years that he'd crafted something fine with that one.

  • @tiller2  1 week

    Thank you, Tasha, for your awesome comments about Whooping Cranes. I am so happy to help conjure up a good memory.

  • @levesinet 1 week

    Well, I could not post it and omit myself while posting it. Haha

  • @cindyrella  1 week

    I love it! Your vocals made it come to life in an amazing way. Thank you! Very pleased.

  • @levesinet 1 week

    You're being too modest. And then people won't notice it. LOL
    I wonder what Cindy thinks.

  • @levesinet 1 week

    Oh, thank you, you did a wonderful job! Here's my mix. May I post it with you as a collaborator? Unfortunately this site doesn't support three collaborators.

  • @dutch1967 1 week

    Thanks Tasha! So cool of you to stop by on Then You Came Along. This was a fun song to record. Had to get my slow-hand on. Not talking Clapton, just slooooooow.

  • @elesimo  1 week

    Tasha, thanks for the comments on my latest song, I'm happy you liked it! I'm still getting started on making music with Ardour and Linux, but let me know if you need some help... though I'm sure that given the amount of songs you make you'll soon be the one teaching me! 😀

  • @jyllian 1 week

    How do you have so many songs??? What is your day job? Thanks for comments - I might steal that like about personal percussion track for my corduroy song.

  • @barbara  1 week

    Ah.. thank you for telling me that. I'm pleased to be a part of stirring those good memories to mind. I see the similarity now, too. Thank you!

  • @barbara  1 week

    Hi Tasha! Thank you for listening to 'This Alchemy.' You have me feeling curious about the memories it sparked. I hope you don't mind my asking: are they arising mostly due to the musical genre/style, or the content of the lyric?

  • @valeriecox  1 week

    Wow! You've been busy this month. And commenting too. You're a FAWMstar. 😉 Many thanks for dropping by my little tune.

  • @spunky4455 1 week

    Hi, thanks for checking out my latest song! Glad you liked it. I'm still using the month to try different things.

  • @tjeff  1 week

    Big thanks for your comments on "Wolf Creek Pass." Much appreciated. Wow, you have a lot of songs! Will be taking a listen.

  • @petemurphy  1 week

    I'm glad you like it Tasha. The melody came to me as soon as I looked at the words, I just had to spend a bit of time figuring out the chords to put underneath it. Feel free to post it on here if you're happy with the roughness of the performance. Thank you for letting me work on it 😀

  • @petemurphy  1 week

    How's this for a rough idea? There are mistakes and dodgy notes n' stuff, but it lays out the melody ideas I had 😀

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5...

  • @woody 1 week

    Hi Tasha, yes that song catcher piece turned out very nicely --- I hope you're enjoying it half as much as I am. My bridge chords feel a little mushy and could stand some tightening up, but the verses are ace and maybe the bridge is good enough to leave well enough alone. So thanks for the nod re collabs yeah I'm feeling the music more than the lyrics this year so more collabs may be in order.

  • @musicsongwriter 1 week

    Thank you Tasha.

  • @arthurrossi 1 week

    Hey, my dear friend... How can I thank you for all your wonderful, encouraging words and all the support... I was so happy to read your comment...

  • @petemurphy  1 week

    Cool! Thank you. Yeah, let's definitely get something else together. I'll check in on your page again tomorrow and have a look at some of your other lyrics (I usually find it easier writing music to someone else's words). I think I'm done with making music for the day... had a headache all day that doesn't seem to be getting any better.
    I'm gonna do a bit of listening/commenting, and then head to bed.
    Hope the rest of your day goes well.

  • @petemurphy  1 week

    Y'know, I was just grabbing myself a snack, and I thought to myself "wouldn't it be cool if Tasha put some vocals down on it!"
    Great minds...
    Go ahead. Add anything else you feel like putting on there too.
    I was kinda limited in what I had around me when I pressed record, so the 'kick drum' was me banging my foot on a thing next to the sofa that the dogs sometimes lie on, and the 'snare' was me clapping my hands. If my slide had been close at the time, I would've done a slide guitar thing, but...

  • @petemurphy  1 week

    Yeah, if you're happy enough to use it in its rough state, then I'm good with you putting it up 😀

  • @petemurphy  1 week

    Well here's what I made up on the spot. It could be worked into something more solid at a later date.
    Thank you Tasha, I don't think I've ever made up the music for a song AFTER pressing the record button before...

    Oh the one I sent to @zecoop ! Right....sorry, so many notes flying around I can't remember anything. Uhh, I still don't remember what I played. It was in G I think. Can you make an mp3 of it and send it to me?

    How do I get you the lyrics?

  • @redlady8029 1 week

    Hi

    I am working on the lyrics but the motor in my computer is giving me problems. The title is to a blues-pop-r&b lyric I have called "Like the lady I am" going with the Barry Manilow song melody. I have always loved his music.

  • @yam655  1 week

    Thanks for the comment on "Celebrate Yourself." It turns out I accidentally uploaded a demo that was missing the vocal component. That's been corrected. (If you're interested.)

  • @charliecheney  2 weeks

    Sweet! Thanks. And thanks for all the worship language, hahaha, my fragile psyche eats that shit up, but really, you know, we're all just writers having fun, right? I'm glad you liked it, but the only reason I could do it is because FAWM is a wonderful safe place where we can all have fun together. Thanks for all your comments on my other songs too, really nice of you. And thanks for writing such a cool lyric. Aren't skirmishes the best? No time to think or edit, just create. 😀

  • @charliecheney  2 weeks

    I've put up a new link, but damn if I can get the Collaborator pull down list to add your name. I watch-listed you... but it still doesn't show up. I must still be doing something wrong.

  • @charliecheney  2 weeks

    Damn, I can't get the collab to link from my phone for some reason. I'll plug in my computer and finish the job. Sorry for the wait.

    Hi to Tasha from Mike in Mass.

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Hi Tasha! This is so wonderful in all respects... Great tune and playing and your vocal delivery is absolutely enjoyable! I have been enjoying it from the first to the very last note... Thanks so much for bringing these words to life in such an amazing way!

  • @cindyrella  2 weeks

    Sure Tasha. That would be great!

    Lead sheet, post FAWM, and attribution are all great by me! I may ask for some of your other pieces, too. You're a wonderful (and varied!) composer!

  • @timfatchen  2 weeks

    Thank you for that happy morning note! A guide to relaxing music: Steer clear of Dark Spring Dark River CD. Anything from le Moulin du Bruel is the happiest. Most of the stuff from A little Incidental Music is relaxing. THe piano solo album is mixed. An alternative listen can be got via https://www.audiosocket.com/artists/379 where they don't charge or need a signup just to listen: they're curated songs so you have tags to use. That page has a button down the bottom that will get you into the rest of the tracks. There's later material there. Happy listening!

  • @sarahk 2 weeks

    LOVE how your music and arrangement for "Sugar and Cream" came out!! Thanks for the collab! I'd love to get the written and/or written music for it so I can record/perform it in the future.
