FUN FACTS about me: I am left-handed (how fun ist that) / I like to sleep on my belly / I learned to ride the bike twice (despite common believe, that you only need to learn it once). If you want to make my day, tell me some fun facts about YOURSELF on my soundboard!
Fun FAWM Facts: only person who has rapped in German at FAWM 2017... as far as I know 😀
I am Singer-Songwriter from Germany and this is my second your of FAWM. I am quite focused on lyrics, so it probably doesn't surprise you that I work as a teacher for German and English at a college 😀
Last year I wrote around 5 songs... I can be quite critical with myself.
This year I got myself a loop machine to play with and a viola. I love strings, but my main instrument is the guitar. (If you are lucky I might dig out an electric guitar that I've got lying around somewhere.)
"I lend my untrained ear
To 200 talented FAWMers here
Now please put my humble name
On this golden wall of fame"
Listening to all those songs has been an absolute joy and inspiration. I am in awe of all those heartfelt lyrics I found. Some told stories that have happened to me also, but I could have never put it into words myself. I found it deeply healing. And I have laughed a lot along the way,the humor and wit I came across blew my mind. I guess, the heart of life is good after all.
Quoting my fellow FAWMER @michaelsalamone: I became "a giant fan of other independent musicians and that makes me extremely happy."
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Hi Jessica, fun fact about me, when I learned to play tennis I was already doing other sports right-handed and concerned about getting tennis elbow. As a result I learned to play tennis left-handed. BTW your students requesting a video of our collab 'Peace Begins With Me' is one of my high points.
Hey! The footlings and I are back for another round... hope you are too! 😀
