Influences: Your face!!
It's my 11th year. Wow. I am very out of practice but would like to do some collabing. Constructive feedback is very welcome! 😀

Sweet. I'm going for it.
You are FAR too kind debs! Thanks for listening. 11 years of FAWM, wow wow.
I have loved your music, voice, and wit ever since "t-t-t-Toys!" and "Have Your Way With Me"! You are Theee Awesomeness!
Thanks for the nice comments on my song "Ghost". I appreciate it!
Thanks for your appreciative comments on "Breakaway" But I want more bluebird points. Life in the fast lane and robot were prompts from the previous two skirmishes this morning. 😉
That means something really big and wonderful is about to happen! Right? Be open to possibilities and look for opportunities! I'm still cheering you on even though I don't know what for!😍
Thanks Deb for the like of my song Let's Go Fly a Kite. This is my first FAWM but loving it and having a good time. I'm at #10 but don't know if I'll get to 14 because I'm so busy with work right now.
check yer dang ol email girl!
Thanks for clearing up the lyric confusion of "North Star", it all makes perfect sense to me!
My "Purpose of You" song has lyrics. The demo should work. Did you try the download button? I'm using kiwi9 for hosting, (because it is free and I'm poor), and sometimes people seem to have issues with it. 😏
yes yes yes! this can go one route or another depending on the answer to this question: do you want to rap?
@debs , thank you so much for your comment on the Introvert song. Love you and your listening and your sweet heart. I love what you notice and what it means to you. Making mistakes that turn out to support the song are fucking awesome, and now I want to fuck up all the damn time! 😝 Seriously, thanks.
No problem! There's always next year! Congrats and hope it goes well! 😁 <3
I love your voice and your lyrics. I'm watchlisting you! I'd love to collaborate someday too.
Yayy!! Super excited!! My email is email@example.com we can organise 😀 I don't think it's too late (if we finish afterwards I don't see it as a catastrophe either)
Sha-do'h-AH Vow-EL-zah! Aren'-tah they-ee so much-ih fun-ah? It's-ah li-ee-ke, the ext-er-a vowEL sou-ooo-nd-ah that-ah you natu-ooo-r-AHl-ly-ee put-ah at-tih the end-ah of-uh a consonant-tah sou-ooo-nd-ah by-ee rea-ah-lly-ee pronou-ooo-ncing-gah it-ah.
Just talk like you're making fun of an opera singer and listen for a whole bunch of extra sounds, those are in all likelihood shadow vowels!
I like the way you make music! How do you go about collabing and would you like to? (I don't mean to be presumptuous, I'm just excited) 😀
It sounds great!
Congratulations on making it to the Century Club! 😀
Thanks for listening to You Were the One. And good call on your part - lots of unspoken memories and thoughts. 😀
Thanks for listening to a couple of my songs! I'm glad you enjoyed them. For Morning Meadow, I didn't think about that section being midnight-y at first, but upon listening to it again, I totally see that. Perhaps I should update the name...
As for how I do that finger-picking? Practice, practice, practice, practice, practice! I had to slow down and practice it many times at around a quarter speed before my fingers stopped getting tangled into knots.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments on My Sweet Melissa. That one is definitely a keeper.
Thank you so much for your comments 😁 😁 happy to chatter about my production 😀 though, it's not as impressive looking in real life (lots of broken items 😝) if by any chance you're interested in collabing, defs let me know!!
Thanks for the comment Debs!
Just delirious at the feedback on "The Note." I didn't want it to be a maudlin plonk into the void, but in your own head it's so hard to tell.
Thank you very much for the kind comments indeed! Happy to discover your songs too!
Thanks for all of your lovely feedback. <3
"You look like you’ve got nothing to try for/Happy in your own little world"
I was picturing people like my former co-workers in retail, or other dead end jobs. They were happy to continue on like that. Nothing to try for, and very content/happy.
Hey! you don't know me but Natchdan recommended you for something I'm working on. He thinks you'll appreciate it. Can I send you an email or something?
Glad my silly song delivered. Now to convince the kids it's brilliant.
You're too kind. And to get such a lovely comment from a talented vocalist such as yourself makes my evening. 😀 I'm really happy with all the "Road" tracks I've heard thus far, you?
Working on our song RIGHT NOW.
debs, thank you for commenting on "She Was A Bud Before The Rose". I've written too many 'rose' songs, but who knows? Maybe another bud will bloom.
Hey, you... I woke up today to a nice surprise... It's magnificent. YOU are magnificent. Our great tradition lives on!!!
Thanks for the super kind comments on my songs and in the forums! Much appreciated!
All the cowbellz! 😁
Thanks loads, Debs. 😘
Thank you for your feedback onmyeatensperm, hahah! No, really, thank you for the comment on that song
debs debs debs i'ma write a song for youuuu
You made me laugh with your comment on the song against humanity. 😂
You KNOW I'm up for a collab, sister-friend. 😀
Love you debs!
Hey, your comments on "Smoldering Coals" I will treasure and learn from. Thank you for the observation about opening up the song for the listener, you gave definition to an intuitive decision. Best...
OMG!!! I am dying laughing! You are awesome!!!! I totally love it! I thought no one will ever do this song and then you came into my FAWM life! Forever grateful! I would love to see you perform this live!! I hope people will stop by for a listen!
re you serious!?!?! Of course you may! Jazz will make it deliciously disturbing! Let me know if I should add you as a collab. Your vocals will be amazing
Thanks for listening to Can't say! Glad you liked it. 😊
Hi Debs. Thanks for the listen in my song on the "I'm Sorry" skirmish.
I appreciate your input.
Hey, thanks for the detailed comment on I'm Sorry! Moving on slowly but surely, got someone else in mind now, but it's still a difficult process. Thanks for asking! 😀
Hi Debs. Nice to see you. The acapela was pretty tedious actually. I suck at it, so I tried to keep it very simple. The idea was to only use 3 chords so I wouldn't have to change pitch much. Started with the first two basic backing voices, then added the lead vocal. Went back and added some other backing vocals to flesh it out. Had to use a piano for a reference every dang time I changed bass notes, because again, I suck at acapella. I'll probably never do that again. 😝
Nah, I didn't play Firehose for the kid. She was too busy playing with her goddamed elephant.
How funny; the song prompted much the same reaction in me!
Hi Debs! I'm FAWMing this year, nice to see that you are, too.
Hiya Debs! Any chance you've got time for a collab this year? I've got a bit of an idea....
I don't know what to say Debs, so I'll tell a story. When S was in 8th grade a raunchy comedian was on CBC radio describing an awkward sexual situation.
I went to turn off the radio. S said - Daaaad I am in grade 8, with grade 8 boys. They talk like this. I will never look at a sock the same again .
And I write a lot of lyrics so if you are still looking for collaborations let me know what kind of song and I can see what I have done or what I can write.
Thanks for checking out the Dance song Val and I collaborated on. I am still laughing about your parody performance! Gorgeous vocals!!!!
Yes Debs, we can haz songs. Pjil is just putting chords to my first one as I write this. Will listen to yours SOON.
<3 thanks for the complement, Debs!! Brought a tear to my eye.
You are too kind. Helps when you're the theme-setter for the skirmish in question. 😉 But yeah, I had TOO much fun making it "eccentric".
Thanks for telling me about this. 🙂 Though I may change my mind March 1 when I haven't slept in a month. 😜
Thanks for the welcome! Good luck this year.
Hi Debs, looking forward to hearing your songs and your vocals.
Hugs right backatcha! 😁
We must do a 60's style protest song ... peace and love yo!
Hello, my darlin'. <3
Debs, don't tell the other FAWMers that you're my favorite 😀
Lovely Debs, welcome back! 😀
Harmonies. I hear them! You compose it, I'm singing with ya! Actually I just can't wait to hear your voice!
Hey Debs! Have a great FAWM! If you want to collab then I want to collab which means ... I dunno, but it sure be swell!
May your awesomeness again fill the FAWM with festive fun. Or something. I'm on an alliteration kick today.
Stay cool, chica.
Hi Debs! I was just thinking about you the other day. For some reason the website thesixtyone.com still exists, and for some other reason "Davy Crockett" popped up on their homepage or something. That was a nice thing. Let me know if you want to collab this year too!
Welcome back, your face.
Hi, Debs! Love to you too! I was just listening to our "Soggy Towel River" exquisite. We should collab again.
11th year??! Dang! That's awesome!!! Congrats and looking forward to hearing your best work ever this FAWM! Best wishes 😀
Hiya, and good musicking to you.
The Debs has landed. Looking forward to the songs.
Lovely to see you again Debs! <3 😀
Hi again, happy FAWM!
<3 and smash hugs my dear debs.
