I'm a Chicago-based music fan, singer-songwriter, mom of two and IT Project Manager looking forward to my 4th FAWM experience.
After many years of playing covers, I started writing my own music a few years ago. In December 2014, I released my first EP, STRANGER. You can have a listen to STRANGER on my website or stream it on Spotify. Since then, I've released a few singles on BandCamp (including a new one on 2/3-- http://heidiserwer.bandcamp.com/track...) and plan to record my sophomore EP this spring.
Last year I crossed the finish line with 14 songs and would love to do it again this year. Work commitments may preclude me from making it all the way but I'm definitely gonna give it a go!
I look forward to hearing the great new music written by my fellow FAWMers and to receiving any constructive feedback you have on mine.
Thank you for your lovely comment on 'Atomos'!
As there are two of us in Major Danby, we are still 10 away from 28. Not sure we're going to make it but I am on holiday this week so you never know!?! 😉
Good luck with the rest of FAWM, Your vocals sounds very good this year. I wanted to ask what kind of microphone do you use? Hope to see you finishing this year with 14.
EDIT: I see you had a hard time finding inspiration, I'm als on the same boat, though I have some inspiration it seems that I can't finish songs this year, I'm hard with my self. anyway, I'm happy to comment and make you feel better! thanks for your kind comments on my songs too.
Are you saying a youth thinks I'm cool? Yessssssssss!! 😉 Seriously though, thank you for the kind words. I probably went a bit overboard, I'm happy with my tunes.. but my tunes in 2013/14 especially just seemed to be a lot more complete and "well rounded" if you will. But annoyingly, not the kind of music I actually want to make too, ha!
Thanks for your comments lovely. I just managed to eek out enough wifi power to actually listen to another of your tunes. Keep em coming. I sure thailand won't let me down with wifi
Yes! That was exactly what I was hoping to do. I want to take the awful and try and make it at least a little beautiful. Thank you!
Thank you for the congratulations! That was really nice of you to say! Again, your song...fantastic. I've listened to it a few more times by now!
Hey friend! Thanks for your comments on Hollywood and Tonight. I am pretty sure you sent out a FAWM tune via Facebook a couple years ago, and that was the first time I heard of this incredible conmmunity. You are the best.
Karl here: thanks for the feedback, I'm trying to keep lyrics light; it's not easy.
Hey Heidi! I'm a bit slow getting started this year - probably won't get chance to get anything up until early next week either. Will do my best once I get going though! Not really started listening yet either. May be a few late nights in the last couple of weeks!!
Hello to a fellow IT Chicagoan! If you play in the city, I'd love to show my support.
Hiya Heidi! So glad to shift my focus (a little) to songwriting! Hope you have a great one! Going to check out your first song right now!!
Thank you Heidi! Good to see you back.
I really like what you wrote on my soundboard about the challenging world, you are right, let's get calm and artstic 😀 See you around.
Catching up with my favourites, are you back this year?
Dear heidi. Hopefully this year we'll be following each other's music just like last year. I missed your voice and it's February, your touching music is waited in my heart! I'm very very hoping to hear music from you this year especially after I haven't heard a lot of your music in soundcloud on the past year (not that I did something new). Good luck (something tells me you'll be here)!
Heeeeeeeeeidi! You're here, right?
