Holly USA   Apr 2016

Artist Bio

Influences:   Regina Spektor, Sleeping at Last, Ingrid Michaelson, Nichole Nordeman

I just started committing to writing last year (2016) and have been really psyched to learn from the awesome writing community! Before 2016, I would write about 1 song every 2-3 years until I was shown the beauty of GYAWS (a weekly songwriting group). I'm married with 2 kids and my husband and I run a wilderness ministry, Project Forty. We help teens connect and grow through wilderness trips like rock climbing and ice climbing. 😀

I'm learning as I go, but would appreciate kind criticism so that I can grow through this experience. Can't wait!

    Glad you could identify with the inner conflict of "One Last Sad Song."

    I'll have to come back and give yer stuff a listen in March.

    Thanks for the comment on "It's Complicated." I'm so far behind in keeping up with comments, but better late than never! I love Toad The Wet Sprocket!! So that's a compliment to me fore sure. I actually just saw them perform this past summer in Naperville, IL when we went to visit friends for their "Last Fling" concert series. They still rock! It was an awesome show.

    Ok, so we're' the other seven? 😝 no pressure.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 21

    Thank you a million. My mom keeps asking about my experience on here every week, and asking, "What are you going to do when it's over?" LOL. I'm sure this'll add to my fun.

  • @jesstherockstar Feb 20

    @jenfoss Hey there! found you on FAWM!! I'm really enjoying your songs! Keep up the good FAWMIN'GYAWSIN'!! 😉

  • @thebschip Feb 18

    Thank you for coming by to listen and write sweet words. I fixed the issue with Sweet Wind, if you wanted to go back to it ever. 😀 I look forward to hearing your next three songs I haven't heard yet! Now I just need to figure out how to stop time to be able to do it, haha.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 15

    Tell me more about GYAWS. How can I say hello to it?

  • @scottlake Feb 14

    I don't want to be a bad influence on children. But perhaps it's too late for that!

  • @resonut123  Feb 9

    Thanks for the nice comment 0n Blipp & Beano.
    Must of my tunes are acoustic guitar based but over the last few years of doing FAWM I've been doing a few ambient instrumentals here and there.

  • @scottlake Feb 6

    Some watch the super bowl with rapt attention, some listen to fellow fawmers' songs with delight using headphones, which is what I did when listening to Gathered Waters.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 6

    Okay, you are amazing. So glad to have heard your music!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 6

    Thank you so much for listening to "Extraction" and leaving me a comment! Yeah, it kind of nice to get at least something positive out of the experience. lol

  • @metalfoot  Feb 5

    Thanks for your kind comments on my songs... and thanks for listening! As you can tell, I'm out of the blocks with a lot of tracks, but life's going to get crazy-busy in the next week or so. All the best on your continuing FAWMing!

  • @downburst  Feb 4

    Very kind of you to say nice things about my song. I felt like it was a pretty weak song so I stated playing around with the arrangement, and I think I just about killed it. Please don't think that's typical.

    ... I just listened to "Slow Down" and a couple others on Soundcloud and, holy cow, your voice is magnificent.

  • @downburst  Feb 4

    Ann Arbor! I grew up in Waterford though, and spent a lot of time in Holly.

  • @jenfoss  Feb 4

    @resonut123 Thanks! Excited to be here. 😀

  • @jenfoss  Feb 4

    @scottlake Thanks so much for taking the time to listen. 😀 I haven't heard of the First Fruits Challenge, I'd love to hear more about it. Ya'll got me addicted to challenges lately!

  • @downburst  Feb 1

    Hiya. Are you in Holly Michigan? Great to meet you.

  • @scottlake Feb 1

    Enjoyed your showcase song - particularly some of your glissando vocals and the synth pulsating pad. The lyrics are great as well. You might want to join in the First Fruits challenge this year. Watchlisted.

    @zecoop No way, you're fairly close! 😀 Ren is in Holly and believe it or not, I still haven't been, I gotta work on that this year. 😀 Excited to get started! Excited to hear your music as well!

  • @zecoop  Jan 31

    Yay.... Welcome to FAWM and so glad to have yet another awesome Michigan FAWMer here!! I lived in Owosso through high school. Is the Ren Faire in Holly? I went to that and think it was... 😀
