Fourth year fawming! First year fawming while working full time and planning a wedding!

I play violin, guitar, piano, and ukulele, but singing is my favorite. I record in my closet. I have a dog whom I love very very very much. I will probably sing about her. I'm really freakin excited to write music and listen to music and get all sorts of inspired by you awesome/crazy people.

"Quit the bitching on your blog
And stop pretending art is hard
Just limit yourself to three chords
And do not practice daily
You'll minimize some stranger's sadness
With a piece of wood and plastic
Holy fuck, it's so fantastic, playing ukulele!"

I'll also be doing some collabs (hopefully) with @natrin over at @honeybadgerfolk yay!

    Thanks for the nice words, I've listened to some of your songs and think you have a beautiful voice. I really liked it on "Cigarettes and Cheap Champagne". Let me know if you would like to collaborate on a song. I just posted something here if that strikes your fancy:

    Hi, Erin! I've just watchlisted you so I can remember to listen later, when I'm not at work. I can totally relate to coping with the difference between FAWMing underemployed vs. working FT! Great bio page; I think I'm gonna love your stuff!

  • @lanasolyluna 7 weeks

    Thanks so much Erin. Glad you enjoyed the lyrics. Lately I haven´t been writing many new lyrics, but this one just poured out of me. Have a good one and I´m looking forward to checking out your songs when I get a chance.

    Thank you, my friend! Haha...I guess I've probably gotten better from playing for my patients so much! Practice eez good.

  • @sajoli86 8 weeks

    Cannot wait to hear those vocal cords of yours

  • @arthurrossi 8 weeks

    Hey! Thank you so much for your beautiful comment!

  • @thelowestbitter 8 weeks

    I really enjoyed it! And I agree that there's nothing quite like mid-twenties existential terror for inspiring songwriting. I'm actually after some vocals for the very emo song I wrote to start my album off (it's not all going to be as over-the-top and self-loathing as this one hopefully, my second song I'm writing now is actually kind of sweet) and I really like your voice so it would be great to have you on the song! I posted the info and link to download the track on collaboration classifieds if you're interested -

  • @wibblywobbly 8 weeks

    You have an excellent music taste!
    I love Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine, and the head and the heart.

  • @madthesinger  8 weeks

    Happy Fawming! This is also my fourth FAWM and I can't wait to listen to your music.

  • @roblincoln  8 weeks

    Welcome back!

  • @errol  8 weeks

    Yes, yes it was. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to lock that song. HOWEVER, I also hope to release it as a video at a later date! You know, one of those, multiple us videos. This is of course pending your permission.

  • @errol  8 weeks

    I am in! Totally in.

    And I still might grab you for my idea, if that's ok.

  • @natrin 8 weeks

    Teehee I really like your bio and how excited you are to FAWM this year ^.^

  • @matthewhalley 8 weeks

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  8 weeks

    I have no concept planned for this year.
    But who knows? Sometimes those ideas come the night of FAWM Eve.
