What a crazy month! This one was hard for me. I am so incredibly impressed with the quality everyone has produced this year. I have 68 people on my watchlist and 874 songs to listen to, wow! I promise, I will do my best in March to listen to and comment on as many as I can. You're all amazing!!


There once was a girl
who loved to sing songs,
but found it hard to write often.
Then she heard of a place
by the name of FAWM,
which sounded pretty awesome.
Now it’s been 11 years,
and she feels lucky
to have made so many friends.
She’s accomplished so much,
and all she can do now
is hope that it never ends.

How the time flies! I’m very excited for this year as it looks like it’ll be the 3rd year I’ve managed all 14 songs, woohoo. There will be some collabs but I’m limiting myself (as much as I love it) as this year I need more time to listen and comment. 😘 I’ll do my best to comment as much as I can but I’m taking dedicated time each weekend to focus on listening to all of you. So don’t worry—I’m so appreciative of all comments I receive and I will return the favor. 😀

Happy FAWMing!

P.S. My little sister and I have a joint account for our music and filmmaking production company.

    Hi Rachelle. It's been three months already and it's kind of late to give comments back, I know, but thank you for you kind words on Body and Ghost. Hope you have a nice summer.

  • @tiller2  Mar 15

    Hey. If you're still around, I've done a demo on the song about brain injury in the NFL, and I'd love your thoughts on my approach. Thanks! http://fawm.org/songs/85237/

  • @fawmerdave Mar 8

    Thanks for the comments on "Sweetheart Deal". Coming from you, high praise!

  • @kovbleu  Mar 7

    Thank you so much for commenting on my song. I'm sorry I'm so late in returning the listens. I've been trying to catch up!! I really appreciate it.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Mar 4

    Thank you for your kind words on “Everybody Knows” and “I Will Be Still.” I’ve had to develop my head voice out of necessity because my range is quite limited due to vocal nodules developed in high school (belting tenor notes in choir when I was no longer a tenor). In “I will Be Still” I think we all relate really well to those great lyrics but Mark. Despite a month of success with regard to my new year’s goals of decreased tech dependence, with FAWM that was pretty well ruined. Now, I definitely need to rediscover that stillness. The song definitely ministers to me.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 26

    Thank you Rachelle, it was a pleasure 😀

  • @thetau  Feb 26

    I just got it fixed up for you this morning. You should be back to the normal count again now

    Hi Rachelle, I just emailed you a recording of Turn Away for our collab. Please let me know if it is OK to post. Hope all is well! --Sean

  • @tiller2  Feb 23

    Hi Rachelle, thanks for your thoughtful comment on Never Saw It Coming. I very much appreciate it. I agree that everyone deserves compassion, and the person who doesn't give it reveals something about himself or herself. I will let you know if I organize a demo. I look forward to listening to your work. Best--AT

  • @aprilm  Feb 22

  • @wacha  Feb 22

    Thank you for your kind words on "Join Me in Death", I am glad I was able to bring Arthur's lyrics to life in a way that so many people enjoy.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 22

    Thanks Rachelle! Here is the demo to Rain if you are interested

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 21

    Thank you Rachelle for your warm comment on my collaboration with Mike. Looking forward to hearing your beautiful singing on our collaboration.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 21

    Thank you<3

  • @looprication  Feb 20

    Hey there! Thanks for your comment on "the loft" - the effect i used was a simple "pitch bend" on the guitar after it was recorded, I feared that might be too subtle so I'm super glad you noticed! Going to check out your stuff when it's not so late... hope the surgery went well 😀

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 16

    Rachelle, you are too kind. 😀 Thanks for the nice comments on Three Threes. I really appreciate the thoughts RE spiritual tones. That means a lot to me as a songwriter. I see your profile says you're due for an operation-- praying it goes well!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 16

    Hey Rachelle! Thank you so much for your kind and generous comment on Run Run Run! And, yes, I would love to do a collab some time!

  • @wistah  Feb 2018

    I got your email, thank you 😀

  • @wistah  Feb 2018

    @russiasaturn I would be delighted to collaborate if you have a song or some lyrics in mind.

  • @wistah  Feb 2018

    Why thank you so much for listening. i really appreciate it! <3

  • @brrrse  Feb 2018

    Thank you for your words about my son and my ...life 😀 thank you very much. It's always a nice break from the battle when you hear someone say "I get that" and you know they do. My son is mostly echolalia with "I want" statements for basic needs. Sometimes he he'll actually communicate, but it's rare - we're finding out it's also completely by choice now - he just turned 12. we do have OT and SpT and I do have a caregiver 17 hours a week - and I can't give up -I can't. He's all I have. Hugs to you lady. You are a beautiful person.

  • @thetau  Feb 2018

    Good to hear Take your time
    Russ 😀

  • @s7even Feb 2018

    Hey! My name is Steve. Keep an eye on my writing and let me know if you’re interested in collaborating with anything. Hope to talk to you soon.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2018

    I've sent my reply, sorry for the delay.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2018

    Thank you so much for your moving comment on my collaboration with Dawn.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2018

    Hey Rachelle. Thank you so much for your incredible comments on "its alright'. It is funny how sometimes the ideas I am not giving much thought to suddenly blossom like that and yes i am branching out by being more literal about my feelings in lyrics where as in the past i have often hidden them. Thank you again and yes definitely we shall aim to collab. Would love to hear those vocals on some ideas i have x

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2018

    Hi Rachelle, yes of course, please send me email. Looking forward to collaborating with you.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2018

    Hi Rachelle, thank you so much for listening and sharing your thoughts on my music and this very sensitive subject. You wrote very important words which might help people who suffer the loss of the dear ones understand what is involved. The loss is too painful and every life is precious. Dawn kindly agreed to sing this song. I've posted her beautiful and very moving vocals here: http://fawm.org/songs/81232/

  • @thetau  Feb 2018

    I added you to the collab...
    Russ 😀

  • @thetau  Feb 2018

    Hi Rachelle.
    Regarding "Stomp'n" the 1st on my song list: It's available still. If you create a lyric and vocal, then just record the vocal (DRY), and send it to me in (.wav ) format. I'll mix it afterwards.

    Let me know, then I'll save it for you
    Russ 😀

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2018

    THank you so much. It is an absolutely lovely take. Very well done. AN honor to work with you.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2018

    Absolutely, ease it up so its singable:)

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2018

    If you don't intend to do changes to the lyrics its not necessary to mail me first. You can just add it.
    I only want to get asked before if somebody want to change things 😀

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2018

    I would love if you did the song. I add you as a collaborator. THANK you.

  • @williamhaight Feb 2018

    Thanks for the feedback on Slow Down. I didn't know you played piano. Really liked Warning Call.
