    I have to catch up on your recent songs! Let me know if you want to do any other collabs before FAWM ends - I have some lyrics that I think you would do an awesome job with!

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 26

    Thanks for visiting my song "Reflection"!

  • @johnhudome  Feb 26

    Joanne, thank you for listening to Julia Rose. My first cousin's daughter is Julia Rose. So, she's my first cousin once removed. Anyway, she's a 13 year old sweetie. I wanted to honor her with a song.
    I am behind in listening. Will get to the rest of your songs soon. I have two to go to cross the finish line. Congrats to you on finishing.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 25

    Thx for comments on "Theresesgate!"

  • @arthurrossi Feb 23

    Joanne! I had difficulties to access my email account on, but now it worked and I noticed you made such a wonderful demo on "Guitar (player)" for last 50/90... I love the melody and your production skills are amazing! Wonderful vocal delivery as always... Thanks sooooooo much!!! What a wonderful song!

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 19

    My dahling, YOU have a beautiful, distinct voice. Thank you for your hellos and encouragement.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 17

    Thanks so much! Downloaded it... πŸ˜€ I really really enjoy so much what you created here...

  • @arthurrossi Feb 15

    Joanne! This is wonderful... I like the slightly nostalgic folk-pop feel of this... Beautiful pace and melody and the chorus is superb with these delightful harmonies... and you already know I really like your voice... Thanks so much for bringing "One in a million" to life in such a gorgeous way... Could you be so kind to make the demo downloadable or to send it on my email address, which is
    ? Thanks so much once again!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 14

    HI J...thanks so much for the offer to collab...

    I had a go and I too am having a hard time hearing anything in the verses...I will think on it...I have a bunch of projects sitting on the table waiting for me...
    thanks again so much for asking...xxc

  • @marthie Feb 14

    Go for it- falling in love is yours

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 14

    Thank you so much for your encouraging comment on Shotgun Wedding...please do cover it!!!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 13

    It is me that would like to thank you, Joanne! Looking very forward to it! πŸ˜€

  • @siebass  Feb 13

    Thanks for stopping by to listen to "I am thinking of you." It was tough to write, but I'm glad people can hear it now. I really like how well you perform on your guitars and piano.

  • @marthie Feb 13

    thank you for your feedback on "Heaven"

  • @arthurrossi Feb 11

    Hey! I would LOVE if you gave "One in a million" a try! There was the need for the change of the perspective only in one line and I already did it, and as always, please, feel free to alter the lyrics as you like... Also, if you like me to add you as collaborator, please, let me know, but of course, you can also repost the eventual demo as well if you prefer... Thanks so much! πŸ˜€

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 10

    No worries... It's all good J...

    Sailing sounds fantastic....

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 10

    Good morning!!
    Go ahead and post H,L and Sinker..!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    Hi! I would really love for you to do a collab on journey - I think it would be amazing--- another FAWMer called 'dibs' on that earlier so I feel like I need to clarify with her first to see if she really plans on doing something - I would not mind two versions but I know that musician collaborators may not feel that way so I want to respect their wishes. I will reach out to her this weekend as this week has been really busy for her.

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 9

    only if you think it is something that would intrigue you...
    no hard feelings if you pass on it...
    I'll come up with something else...xxxc

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 9

    Feel free to use the lyrics of my "hook line and sinker" and write your own music ...let be would be fun and different to hear your take...

  • @arthurrossi Feb 7

    Thank you so much for your kind comment, Joanne!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 7


  • @kahlo2013  Feb 7

    I'd love for you to try a little jazzy/sultry/sensual on Can You Feel. I will add you as a collaborator. I think it is pretty singable. That said by a non-singer!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 6
