My name is Carley. I've lived in Milwaukee, WI; Portland, OR; and most recently, Cambridge, MA. I'm releasing two albums this year so far, a guerilla dark-of-night affair and a more polished, proper collection. That's in addition to whatever my 11th FAWM (10-year anniversary!!) has in store.
Long live FAWM

Carley, welcome to the greater Boston area.
And she crosses the line with 12 hours to spare... woot!
Great job on “Clueless”, sounds awesome. Here, have some Korean cookies to celebrate! 😀
Woohooo, 1 to go.
Your song "Break it Down" totally inspired me after listening to it. I wrote some lyrics yesterday for a collab (not posted yet) that's an ambiguous metaphor for how I have a serious problem/addiction to buying too many pairs of gym shoes/tennis shoes. LOL! It totally sounds like it's about a rocky relationship though...so it'll be relatable. Thanks for the jolt of inspiration!
You're so good! Just saying!
Re: FAWM collab lyrics....You go girl! Do anything you wish... if it turns into something really cool, we can tweak all the things later... for now, get your ideas going, and get another song up 😀
I am away from gear until the final 12 hours of FAWM (I get back at 7pm EST)... I can make changes if you need at that time.
Good luck songwriter!
Looks over shoulder.
Oh cool, looks like you're getting things rolling here!
Yay! Carley "Bear" is back!!! 😀
I started this idea with you in mind 20 minutes ago... if you want to work with it, I can add a 3rd part for a bridge, and clean it up (fix some drum transitions, etc)... then I can add other stuff if you like. Maybe a slow guitar part going "wah wah" somewhere way down the street.
Don't worry about the title... the piece reminded me of a bungling detective... but don't let my silliness curse your muse if you have fresh ideas when listening!
Sorry I didn't make you show on da Eastside, had a somewhat compounded situation (several little things layered).
I'll make it to a show where I can stick around one of these days.
I also want to make the trek to one of those Steel Bridge thingy's one of these days (although that would require some intense negotiations).
Carley! Yeah, I'm back! What about you? Let's do this!
How's LOH going?
😀 bring it!
Hi, happy FAWMing!
The email on here will work or message on racebook either.
Thanks for your visit! I am preparing myself for this marathon...
I'll keep checking in to listen and learn...
I kinda figured you would be tight schedule, just thought I would throw it out there. I am interested in the house concert, will it be adults only or do you think it will be somewhat kid friendly? My daughter will be with me on Saturday.
Hey, I see you're going to be in Milwaukee next weekend. If you have any time (I know your schedule is probably tightly packed) we could do a live and in person collaboration during the actual month of FAWM.
Looking forward to hearing your 2018 creations! Happy FAWMing!
Hi Carley! A guerrilla dark-of-night affair sounds cool! Happy fawming
Happy FAWM anniversary - can't wait to see what you come up with - February has never been the same for me since I found FAWM in '13.
Hey Carley! Happy FAWM 2018!!
Hey, you sound like R.bachman on 5090, but she's from Tulsa. Anyway, just say'in 😀.
Have a good one!
As usual, I'll be listening for your tunes.
I can't wait to hear more of your wonderful creations... FAWM is almost here. 😀
