Influences: Amanda Palmer, Regina Specktor, Tim MInchin, Disney movies and musical theatre
I'm an actor, musican, writer, and general performer. I've been writing music for other people for about 7 years and started to write more songs for my own singer songwriter purposes about two years ago. I'm in the process of putting together my first album and I’m using FAWM 2018 to make it happen.

Ha, that's great! I hope it continues to pay off until you have your own museum of strange musical toys 😀
Thanks for commenting on Beers Buddies and Banjos. It’s a bit of a throwaway song, but I had fun writing and singing it. 😀
Thanks for listening and commenting!
I thought it needed to exist too, thanks Gail!
great song about gun control! (and just as a ps to my comment there, I just wrote and recording a song on the same topic as well...)
Sweet!!! Hmm, that would be something!
You are very welcome!
That’s awesome! One of my friends informed me that his Shame Goblin is named Gerald. I haven’t asked mine what their name is because I do not care to know. Thanks for telling me, I think it’s neat!
I totally get the whole buzzing on strings with the guitar. I have so much respect for you! You are having a phenomenal start to your first FAWM.
Thank you for your feedback to my Hide and Seek song. I spent most of my life Mormon and recently joined the UCC, so your religious background intrigues me. We share some familiar connections through our life paths.
Welcome to FAWM!
BTW, FAWM's communication system is a little weird - if you reply to someone's comments on your profile or song page, they don't get notified about it and won't see it unless they happen to come back. The usual way to reply is to go to their profile page and leave your comment there - they'll always get notified that way. Just part of FAWM's quirky fun. 😀
Welcome! I'm glad that you've joined us...enjoy!
Great to have you with us, we have a heap of fun here together. Welcome! 😀
Hello and welcome to FAWM! I hope you accomplish your album goal!
@quork Thanks for listening! So my plan for FAWM is to use it to generate the next few songs I want to fill out my first album. I have about 6 that I'm absolutely in love with. The themes that are arising are grief and self growth. I do tend to write with a musical theatre sensibility so if things get more plotty I'll totally follow it.
Hey Gail. Welcome. I enjoyed Windup. Great piano playing and sentments. I can totally hear rhythm guitar. Will your album be a musical? I look forward to hearing what you come up with.
Hi Gail! Welcome to FAWM! I hope you have a great month. This will be my 6th time and I am totally hooked! Happy writing!
