Lakeville USA   Feb 1


Artist Bio

Influences:   Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Willie Nelson, Marc Broussard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Garth Brooks, Hank Williams Sr.

My name is Steve Hedges Jr. and I live in Lakeville Ma. Just starting to find myself musically. Thought this would help push me, so here I am.

Fun fact. I had written one complete song in my entire life (2 weeks before this started, it was for my mother and she didnt like it lol)
I’ve kind of shocked myself with the stuff I’m coming out with. PRAISE GOD .Having such amazing talent to collaborate with has certainly been a blessing and pushed me to do my best. Thank you FAWMers.

I’m really sad that this is over. I feel so blessed to have done this and I learned so much about myself and found that I might be above average at this writing thing (who knew).

    I wanted to give a last minute shout out to everyone who commented on my writing. Thank you guys. Being so new to this, the encouragement really helped. Also to the people who truly blessed me with their collaborations. @colgoo @bru2 @taracraig @corinnelucy @krayzie003 @cleanshoes @andrewjtaylor You guys seriously made my month and I appreciate more than you know that you took time to work with my lyrics. I love every song. If any of you would like to find me on Facebook my name is Steve Hedges and my profile picture is a page from a devotional. I also have steve Hedges Jr. which is my music page (that I just started). I hope to keep in touch with all of you. Be blessed.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 26

    Angel's Wings demo is up. Hope you like what I did with it. Since FAWM is ending soon I won't have time to do much more here but would love to work on other songs with you outside of FAWM if you're interested.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 26

    Hey @s7even! Just tried my hand at "People Can Change" and I think it's going to work. I'll get back to you within 30 minutes to let you know what I've got. I'll want to do a fuller production on it since it's very uptempo.

  • @cleanshoes Feb 24

    I'm so glad you like it! I'm working on a couple more tunes of my own to finish out the month, but will keep it in mind if I have time!

  • @matthew62  Feb 24

    Thanks for your kind comments on: They Say. Truly appreciated.

  • @cleanshoes Feb 24

    You got it! Enjoy.

  • @cleanshoes Feb 23

    Hey, I sent you an email too but wanted to let you know I've finished When the New Runs Out. Let me know if I should go ahead and post it or if you want to hear it first!

  • @krayzie003  Feb 23

    Sent you an email. Hope you got it.

  • @taracraig  Feb 22

    Backroads is up on Soundcloud! https://soundcloud.com/taracraig/tara...

  • @taracraig  Feb 22

    I do have SoundCloud I’ll upload it shortly. There’s a link to my SoundCloud on my profile

  • @corinnelucy  Feb 21

    Go ahead and share Let's Make A Memory - I listened again and if you're happy with it I'm happy. 😀

  • @colgoo  Feb 21

    You are becoming a collaboration King! I told you that you have great lyrics! I'm so happy to see quality musicians setting them to music.

  • @bru2 Feb 21

    Just put up "I Talk to God". I had to take a little liberty on the words to make it fit, but didn't change much.

  • @taracraig  Feb 20

    I'm so happy to hear that!! I love it too! So blessed to be apart of her journey. Thank you!

  • @taracraig  Feb 19

    Demo is up. I'm in love. Excited to hear your thoughts!

  • @corinnelucy  Feb 19

    Thank you, I'm glad you like it 😀 It's on Soundcloud now, can I ask where you're planning to share it? If it's going to be shared super widely let me know and I'll make a better demo - I was losing my voice a bit when I recorded that & messed up some chords 😀

  • @corinnelucy  Feb 18

    @s7even What do you think to this?

  • @taracraig  Feb 18

    Just a quick update. Our song is coming along nicely should be posted later today.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 18

    OK, I'm going to try to come up with something for "Wind of an Angels Wings." At first I was thinking I couldn't do it because it hits way to close to home. I lost my dad to cancer a little over two years ago. But I had my wife read the lyrics and she says I should try. So I will. I have a few other songs in the works right now but I'll try to work on it next week.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 17

    For some reason I can't look at "Wind of an Angels Wings" even though you put me as a collaborator. You might have to unlock it.

  • @chucknamaste Feb 17

    Hey thanks for the nice comments on my tunes! I'm really busy at the moment, but maybe we can work out a collaboration next week or something

  • @colgoo  Feb 17

    Thanks for not getting upset with my suggestions. I have found that constructive criticism from other songwriters has helped me improve my songwriting immensely!

  • @krayzie003  Feb 16

    Fixed the typo. That's what happens after 1am lol

  • @krayzie003  Feb 16

    Thanks. I'll keep an eye on what you got going on and see if we can do some moe songs together.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 16

    I got the demo for "Breaking Down" done and updated the song. I decided to use the original lyrics because I feel that they fit better with the overall idea. Hope you like it.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 15

    I'll check out the change later. Haven't had a chance to work on it today yet. Hopefully later tonight I'll have some time.

  • @woolford  Feb 15

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by and leaving feedback on a couple of my songs. Really appreciate it. I’ll keeping eye out, and if you have any lyrics you’d like me to look over and have a crack at, feel free to call on me 😀
    Thanks again!

  • @taracraig  Feb 15

    Hi! Thanks for listening to my songs. I’d love to collaborate. What if I write something for Backroads?

  • @cleanshoes Feb 14

    Thank you so much! I don't have a whole lot of time for collabs right now, so I don't want to commit to anything, but I'll definitely keep an eye on the lyrics you're posting. If something seems like it would be a good fit I'll let you know!

  • @bru2 Feb 13

    @s7even Keep writing and I'll keep checking 😀 Everyone I've played Beneath the Whiskey to really likes it.

  • @krayzie003  Feb 13

    Thanks for listening to "Listen." I appreciate your comments.

  • @bru2 Feb 13

    @s7even Hope you like it 😀 I had an absolute blast putting this song together. It is by far my favorite I've been apart of during this whole experience. Thank you so much for letting me put music to your words!

  • @bru2 Feb 12

    Awesome. I’ll hopefully have it done by tomorrow! 😀

  • @bru2 Feb 12

    Hi @s7even Id like to put music an melody to your Beneath the Whiskey lyrics. Is anyone else working on it?

  • @colgoo  Feb 12

    So, thank you for allowing me the intimacy of setting your lyrics to my styling!

    I have learned a few things the past couple years of FAWM that might help you find more collaborations. To get more feedback, after a collab, reach out to those who commented on your lyrics via their soundboard and let them know music has been added.

    Be proactive about commenting on other's songs. If you hear a musician who you admire, reach out to them and offer to collaborate, especially musicians who are new here, as well. They have fewer lyricists begging for music.

    Comment, comment, comment!

    My first year, I tried making two helpful comments to every one that remarked on my songs. To get feedback, you have to give it. Especially reach out to other Fawmlings, people who live in our area (you can watch them perform live at the FAWMover party), and musicians who have done collabs with other lyricists. Most people here reciprocate on feedback, and then you'll get them reading your naked lyrics!

  • @s7even Feb 12

    Thank you! It means a lot.

  • @colgoo  Feb 12

    Awesome!!!! I’ll try to get a good recording. I am definitely not a high production FAWMer....maybe someday....but I really like your work.

    Do you want to add me as a collaborator on “Praying on a Dream”, or have me post separately? I am fine, either way

  • @colgoo  Feb 11

    Welcome to FAWM. Are you're having a good time here? I was wondering if you are looking for collabs, or do you play an instrument and just need to figure out the recording bit? (that was totally me my first FAWM!) I noticed you're local. Hope to meet up with you sometime soon!

  • @andygetch  Feb 4
