Reno USA   Feb 2009


Artist Bio

Influences:   My father. Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Mary Hopkins, Kate Bush, Celtic Woman, Blackmoore's Night, Musical theater. Storytellers - I'm awful with names. But I remember the music!

This will be my eighth run at FAWM. It's wonderful to already see that so many of my Fawm buddies are back and going strong!! 😀 I've been in a deep funk this year over the shock of the election results, and have been expending my energy in resistance to what I see as a an attack on pretty much every liberty I hold dear. Collaborating will probably be my only hope this year. Should you wish to join me in a collaboration, I only ask that I get a copy of the music file sent to my email, as well as any mixed with vocals. Hope that doesn't discourage anyone 😀

Oh, and by the way,
It's Sheila - sheiler K
Christened by East Coast friends
Who can't pronounce A...
(at least, when it comes at the end my name!)
Somehow an R seems to slip in there uninvited 😉

I'd love to continue collaborating even after the Fun that is Fawm is over. If anyone would like words or an aery fairy vocal for their music, please hit me up at sheilerk@charter.net 😀 You'll have me all smiles 😀

    Hi Sheila,

    Im really sorry - I've been moving house and the studio is packed up right now, including my desktop computer where all the files are stored. The copy with vocals should be downloadable directly from my FAWM profile (or indeed yours!) but if you want music only that one has to wait until I've unpacked the studio, which should be this time next week. Very sorry, I have had so much on my plate that I have dropped a few balls 😞

  • @jamkar  Mar 11

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments Sheila. I always enjoy your posts. 😀

  • @quork  Mar 7

    Thanks for your comment, Sheila, much appreciated.

  • @kathym  Mar 6

    <3 on Starbird. I don't write much fairy tale/fantasy, so this was a challenge for me and I'm glad you liked it. Thank you!

  • @janeg  Mar 5

    One-take demo now posted for Ibn Battuta at http://fawm.org/songs/76516/. You had commented on this one. Thanks for all your comments on my songs, especially that we must be sisters.

  • @jadesongbird  Mar 2

    Thank you so much for all of your kind feedback! I have been thinking a lot of your comment on my last song. ❤

  • @the3queens Mar 1

    Thank you for your kind words on "If I Never Find That Heaven" Sheila. I plan to do heavy duty listening tomorrow so I'll be back.

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 1

    Hi Sheila, thank you so much for your beautiful lyric and vocals. What a pleasure to listen to our song! Love it. Your vocals are gorgeous!

  • @tiller2  Mar 1

    Sheila, such sweet comments for "They Promised Us Space Planes." Thank you! 😁 I've got some catching up to do on your list!

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 1

    Thank you Sheila, I'll listen as soon as I can. Trying to post some collabs before the time runs out. Thank you for your beautiful comment on my dark baroque try.

    You are a really sweet person Sheila!! Thanks for being here and for being wonderful!

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 28

    Thank you Sheila, please let me know if you like my music for your lyric, if not I can compose less dramatic music. Looking forward to reading your lyric.
    Nadia

  • @thetau  Feb 28

    I got it...
    Yes I can work with this...
    Maybe some tweeking to fit, but right in the money
    Thank you
    Russ 😀

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 27

    Hi Sheila, I sent you email.

  • @mishykatz  Feb 27

    Thank you for the feedback on Marilyn's Magic! It means a lot to me, here we are on the home stretch look at you 21!

  • @yam655  Feb 27

    You just started a week ago or so? Nice way to catch up! 😀

  • @yam655  Feb 27

    Congratulations on making it to the Century Club! 😀

  • @thetau  Feb 27

    A late Congrats on 14.
    BTW I did send you the Trax we were talking about (Email)...
    Did you get them?? How you doing with it?? I can hold a spot for it by posting the Title only and finishing after the 28th. Sherry said she could do the vocal in about an hour.
    Russ 😀

  • @vegansongs Feb 27

    Thanks for your comments on "Wisdom Adds Up" My experimental piece for the weekly No chord challenge and Kidsskirmish. All quotes used were found online public domain of Chinese Proverbs.

  • @jonmeta  Feb 26

    Sheila, thanks so much for your encouraging words about "Humans". I hope you'll join the choir! I see you're more of a lyricist but it doesn't matter. We're all humans and I need human voices!

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 25

    Congratulations on winning Sheila! You did it in a record time!
    Nadia

  • @spunky4455 Feb 25

    Thanks! It was so much fun to do, so I'm happy you like it. Sure, I'll send you copies with and without the vocals, if that's what you want. As far as merging the two threads together, I don't know how to do that. I think I have one on my page like that as well. Maybe there's some info on the Tech Issues thread that tells you how.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 25

    Thank you Sheila.
    Nadia

  • @thetau  Feb 25

    You know I am still trying to put together some Lyrics for that Poodle.
    I'll send you an email with the Trax, if you are still interested in it???

    Russ 😀

  • @scubed  Feb 25

    Thank you for your kind words on "I'm Almost Home! I'm glad you liked the "asphalt river" line. 😀

  • @vegansongs Feb 25

    Thank you for your comment on my skirmish song Three times a charm ( Turn around ). Dinner break and then more skirmishes!

  • @cairobraga Feb 25

    hej hej! thanks for watching! I still think that would be weird watching someone making music on the spot, but weird can be fun too, right? hehehe

    oh, here it is: http://fawm.org/songs/74058/
    and I'm gonna livestream my next skirmish as well, in about 20min 😉

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 24

    Thanks for listening to my take on "Almost Home". Glad you liked it.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 22

    Hi Sheila, thank you for asking, no it's not really important as I was doing my instrumental for skirmish and this is going to be our new version so please feel free to see where your inspiration takes you. Doesn’t have to be about dreams if you hear something else. Thank you Sheila.
    Nadia

  • @dragondreams  Feb 21

    Thank you so much! 😘
    I'm just glad my scruffy, just-woke-up appearance didn't scare you! 😉

  • @crisp1  Feb 21

    Thanks for the kind words about I Refuse to Die. It's good to know someone got it. I was worried. Hope you're having a great FAWM!

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 21

    Thank you for your input on "That Pickle." "That pickle you're in" could represent anything, from a drug dependency to a codependent type of situation, as was the case that inspired me to write. I wanted to make it so that anyone who wanted to stop enabling certain problems could relate the song to them, if that makes sense.

  • @kathym  Feb 21

    <3 <3 <3 I was curious about the handsome beast in your profile picture and thank you for your very touching comment on the hawk song. I see a lot of hawks, usually cooper's or red tails. There was a family of them living in my dad's yard last summer and we got to see a lot of them, including what appeared to be flying lessons that were being given to the young ones. We will have to touch base more. I've got to get to bed shortly if I'm going to be worth anything on the day job in the morning. I'm so happy you found a connection in my lyrics. Now I'm glad I held onto that title until now.

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 21

    Hey. ..good to see you back here!

  • @donna  Feb 21

    Woohooooo! You're back in the fold, Sheila. 😀

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 20

    Thank you Sheila, your opinion is highly inspiring.
    Nadia

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 20

    Sent again as my first message bounced. Used possibly your old address. You should receive my message now.
    Nadia

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 20

    Hi Sheila, I've sent you both files.
    Nadia

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 20

    Also please let me know if you would like me to send you my Wav or MP3 file and whether your email address is still the same.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 20

    Thank you Sheila for your warm comments and for your kind offer of collaboration. I'll be delighted to collaborate with you again. I've added you. Please take all the time you need. I absolutely love your amazing lyrics and vocals and I'm looking forward to hearing them with my dreamy tune.
    Nadia

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 20

    Hi Sheila, thank you for your kind comment. I've had the chance to sort out my fl studio. Hooray! Looking forward to hearing your beautiful songs, singing, reading your lyrics. Have a great February!
