    Hey there! You asked to know when I had music for my lyric "They Promised Us Space Planes." My collab person dropped out but I came up with something and would love your thoughts, when you have time (I'm here in March, too) 😀

  • @cnidaria  Feb 28

    Sweet. I'm going for it.

  • @garlajoie Feb 27

    You are FAR too kind debs! Thanks for listening. 11 years of FAWM, wow wow.

  • @donaldlyre Feb 26

    I have loved your music, voice, and wit ever since "t-t-t-Toys!" and "Have Your Way With Me"! You are Theee Awesomeness!

  • @davewermers  Feb 26

    Thanks for the nice comments on my song "Ghost". I appreciate it!

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 26

    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. 😉

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 26

    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!😍

  • @djevans53 Feb 26

    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.

  • @nancyrost  Feb 26

    Maybe put something like this on your gear wishlist 😉

  • @joshbelville  Feb 26

    check yer dang ol email girl!

  • @rainchaser  Feb 26

    Thanks for clearing up the lyric confusion of "North Star", it all makes perfect sense to me!

  • @yam655  Feb 26

    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. 😏

  • @joshbelville  Feb 26

    yes yes yes! this can go one route or another depending on the answer to this question: do you want to rap?

  • @unpronounceable Feb 26

    @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.

  • @negasi  Feb 24

    No problem! There's always next year! Congrats and hope it goes well! 😁 <3

  • @negasi  Feb 23

    Hi Debs! I don't know if you have time or the desire too, but I have a set of lyrics I would love if you wanted to take a crack at. If not that is quite alright 😁

  • @leahshoshanah Feb 23

    I love your voice and your lyrics. I'm watchlisting you! I'd love to collaborate someday too.

  • @meriamber  Feb 22

    Yayy!! Super excited!! My email is we can organise 😀 I don't think it's too late (if we finish afterwards I don't see it as a catastrophe either)

  • @abudabard12514  Feb 22

    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!

  • @abudabard12514  Feb 22

    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) 😀

  • @natchdan  Feb 21

    It sounds great!

  • @yam655  Feb 21

    Congratulations on making it to the Century Club! 😀

  • @aprilm Feb 20

    Thanks for listening to You Were the One. And good call on your part - lots of unspoken memories and thoughts. 😀

  • @deadhead  Feb 20

    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.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 20

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on My Sweet Melissa. That one is definitely a keeper.

  • @meriamber  Feb 20

    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!!

  • @juravial  Feb 19

    Thanks for the comment Debs!

  • @spinhead  Feb 19

    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.

  • @jamkar  Feb 19

    Thank you very much for the kind comments indeed! Happy to discover your songs too!

  • @ladyred Feb 19

    Thanks for all of your lovely feedback. <3

  • @darkmantle  Feb 19

    "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.

  • @giantenemycliche Feb 18

    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?

  • @spinhead  Feb 17

    Glad my silly song delivered. Now to convince the kids it's brilliant.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    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?

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2017

    Working on our song RIGHT NOW.

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 2017

    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.

  • @popmythology  Feb 2017

    Hey, you... I woke up today to a nice surprise... It's magnificent. YOU are magnificent. Our great tradition lives on!!!

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the super kind comments on my songs and in the forums! Much appreciated!

  • @tiller2  Feb 2017

    Hi! Pete Murphy kindly made a tune and demo for my "Smoldering Coals" lyric. He decided to use v2 as a repeated prechorus. Love the collabs 😀 !

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2017

    All the cowbellz! 😁
    Thanks loads, Debs. 😘

  • @konstisifyer  Feb 2017

    Thank you for your feedback onmyeatensperm, hahah! No, really, thank you for the comment on that song

  • @joshbelville  Feb 2017

    debs debs debs i'ma write a song for youuuu

  • @valeriecox  Feb 2017

    You made me laugh with your comment on the song against humanity. 😂

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2017

    You KNOW I'm up for a collab, sister-friend. 😀

  • @charliecheney  Feb 2017

    Love you debs!

  • @tiller2  Feb 2017

    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...

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    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!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    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

  • @darkmantle  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening to Can't say! Glad you liked it. 😊

  • @andygetch  Feb 2017

    Hi Debs. Thanks for the listen in my song on the "I'm Sorry" skirmish.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2017

    I appreciate your input.

  • @powerstars Feb 2017

    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! 😀

  • @tiller2  Feb 2017


  • @valeriecox  Feb 2017

    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. 😝

  • @dasbinky  Feb 2017

    Nah, I didn't play Firehose for the kid. She was too busy playing with her goddamed elephant.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    How funny; the song prompted much the same reaction in me!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2017


  • @meliwazhere Feb 2017

    Hi Debs! I'm FAWMing this year, nice to see that you are, too.

  • @adamhill  Feb 2017

    Hiya Debs! Any chance you've got time for a collab this year? I've got a bit of an idea....

  • @ductapeguy  Feb 2017

    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 .

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    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.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Thanks for checking out the Dance song Val and I collaborated on. I am still laughing about your parody performance! Gorgeous vocals!!!!

  • @janeg  Feb 2017

    Yes Debs, we can haz songs. Pjil is just putting chords to my first one as I write this. Will listen to yours SOON.

  • @sarahk Feb 2017

    <3 thanks for the complement, Debs!! Brought a tear to my eye.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    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".

  • @darkmantle  Feb 2017

    Thanks for telling me about this. 🙂 Though I may change my mind March 1 when I haven't slept in a month. 😜

  • @hazeyjohnii  Jan 2017

    Thanks for the welcome! Good luck this year.

  • @musicsongwriter Jan 2017

    Hi Debs, looking forward to hearing your songs and your vocals.

  • @sapient  Jan 2017

    Hugs right backatcha! 😁

  • @carlos  Jan 2017

    We must do a 60's style protest song ... peace and love yo!

  • @leslie  Jan 2017

    Hello, my darlin'. <3

  • @marklberry Jan 2017

    Debs, don't tell the other FAWMers that you're my favorite 😀

  • @karan  Jan 2017

    Lovely Debs, welcome back! 😀

  • @cts  Jan 2017

    Harmonies. I hear them! You compose it, I'm singing with ya! Actually I just can't wait to hear your voice!

  • @kristian  Jan 2017

    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!

  • @ladyred Jan 2017


  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2017

    Yes, we're coming to Toronto August 19th, performing at the Moonshine Cafe. Here's the event info. Would love to meet you!! 😀

  • @dasbinky  Jan 2017

    May your awesomeness again fill the FAWM with festive fun. Or something. I'm on an alliteration kick today.

    Stay cool, chica.

  • @joshbelville  Jan 2017

    Hi Debs! I was just thinking about you the other day. For some reason the website 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!

  • @cowex  Jan 2017

    Welcome back, your face.

  • @petra777  Jan 2017


  • @nancyrost  Jan 2017

    Hi, Debs! Love to you too! I was just listening to our "Soggy Towel River" exquisite. We should collab again.

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2017

    11th year??! Dang! That's awesome!!! Congrats and looking forward to hearing your best work ever this FAWM! Best wishes 😀

  • @johncrossman  Jan 2017

    Hiya, and good musicking to you.

  • @mikegtz  Jan 2017

    Hi again, happy FAWM!

  • @charliecheney  Jan 2017

    <3 and smash hugs my dear debs.
