Influences: Anything that makes me laugh, cry, or feel anything....and my FAWMily!
My music is mostly bluesy-jazzy, with some Django thrown in.
Soon I'll be old enough to be authentic vintage 😀
Love collabs and skirmishes.
Looking forward to connecting with old friends and making new ones.
I will show up Feb 1, tabula rasa and see what happens!

Thanks for your kind comments on Heaven will Hold You!
You're too kind! Thanks a ton for the kind feedback.
Good...more time to make it “pop”.
Why thank you. I'm going to make 3 place holders. I thought I'd check in to see if you'd like one.
I'd prefer it if you could sing. But I suppose it's in the wrong key?
Cool, I'll just record what I was hearing when I read it. (You mean "shone", not "shown", right? Just checking).
I could, but I'm not sure I could take it in the direction you want. And the perspective is female, so I don't know. What do you think?
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my songs today! Much appreciated and thanks for the compliment on my singing 😁
Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Merci Sherry! Glad you like the song.
Well I posted up a French song but it's not on the stink bug. I explain in my liner notes.
Thank you very much for your kind words on "Start Again", I'm glad the song is resonating with so many people.
Thx a lot for comments on "Windswept Clouds"
Thanks for the listen & the kind comments on "Me Too".
Sent you an email
Thanks Sherry for your kind comment on my skirmish song! That means a lot coming from someone with your talent! I'm exhausted now 😉
Sherry, you're too kind! I'm glad you liked my skirmish song so much... it must have hit the mark somehow, with the way you listen or however it works... It's funny because it was one of those writes where you know the ideas have been in your head awhile, just waiting for an excuse to come out. I've been living in Spain for a month and a half now, and they smoke everywhere here! I just kind of walk around in a half dream, breathing second hand smoke and wondering why I don't just relapse... but at the same time, I realize it is actually the idea of smoking that I'm addicted to, not the tobacco itself... Anyhow, the song was sort of simmering in my head, so, one of those writes. Also, I've been killing myself trying to express myself in a second language, and the skirmish let me give up on that and fall back to my mother tongue. Thanks for all your enthusiasm, it makes me want to re-record the song at a higher level... Of course something would be lost in that. Maybe during March...
Hey Sherry. Thanks so much for dropping by and listening to on the cusp. Man those late-night skirmishes when your unconscious mind is activated. Magic moments. Glad you Took it all in. You're a doll.💜💛
Ha! That's because the man is a woman 😊
Thanks for listening/commenting - much appreciated!
Oooh Sherry you snuck one in there didn't you.....Ok, let's see what I can come up with. Punaise puante it is.
Thanks for your nice comment on "Moonlit Road". Much appreciated.
Ah ok.....Band In A Box. Got it. You sang about Donald Trump and a Stink Bug and thought about me? WELL!!! I see how it is! Stink Bug I can take but Donald Trump?? Well at least he has a hot Russian wife. Keep those smooth vocals coming. 😀
Thank you, Sherry. Your words are encouraging, as always. It seemed like silence in this case might be the most eloquent sound. What’s left to say? How does absence feel? You get that. Thanks!
I know you’re not the kind to pressure Sherry, but I thought I’d just give you a quick update. Chords and melody are written and I’ve recorded some jazz rhythm guitar backing. Just a case of now deciding what else to add. I’m hoping to finish over the weekend. PS - in my inevitable way I have adjusted the lyrics to a degree.
Thanks so much for helping out
happy anti-valentine-s Day...
I was there when you played at Mangia last. Thursday Good stuff.
Greetings from another Mangia Gourmet 'er.
Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
"Wanna shed my coat
Wanna walk in the dark
Wanna hear the sounds of the ice cream man
Wanna thaw my heart
Wanna see a daffodil
Wanna catch some sun and work on my tan"
Sure I remember, what a fine collab that was, eh?
Good for you, you moved to The Sunshine State. Happy sunny FAWMing!
Thank you very much for the nice words on the duett!
Thank you for your kind comment on our duett.
Thank you very much for the compliments on "Help Yourself"! Glad you liked it!
Sherry, thanks so much for your two recent comments. I've taken to heart your advice about the dangers of being “too chirpy”. —And if a canary says, “Too chirpy”, it's too chirpy. 😉 — It helped me listen with fresh ears. Thank you.
Thanks for commenting on "My Yoga Mat" - looking back at it now, I am completely surprised that I chose that topic for the fill-in-the-blank skirmish. There were so many other ways it could have gone, but I decided to follow that initial impulse, as we do in skirmishes. 😉
Of course you can send me a case of Sauvignon Blanc! One case a week will suffice. Thanks Sherry!
anytime you want to hit me with some lyrics btw Sherry, go for it
Hi Sherry! Happy FAWMING!
Haha... I was wondering if I found your skirmish song or not! So now I get to listen to another track of yours... win for me 😀
Thanks for checking out my surf tune, Sherry! Much appreciated, as always! 😀
I got overwhelmed and ran out of time today but I will be back to check out your 0203-A skirmish song!!
Ha, ha -- You linked the Full Moon song in John's skirmish thread. In case you don't get many comments on Never Saw It Coming -- that is why!
Thanks for your lovely comment! Looking forward to hearing more of your songs.
I am a sucker for jazz ballads like this. You voice belongs in a hot spotlight Sherry! Fantastic start. Would love to hear a Django solo on the bridge.
Have a great FAWM Sherry. Looking forward to hearing your new songs.
Cat and Mouse is on my regular playlist, and I always enjoy playing it for friends. I'll be looking forward to hearing your songs this year! 😀 Happy Fawming!
Hi Sherry, so lovely to see you again! x
My tabula ain't so rasa anymore. Good luck! And if time permits will do another collab 😀
Welcome back to FAWM! 😀
Yes, here we round the merry go round! Good luck 😀
Hi Sherry. It's great to see you here again. I'm looking forward to your creativity and your gorgeous, unique voice.
The incredible talent that is you...hello again...
I'll be back at the Dog and Parrot Sunday, March 11. I also have some shows at the Indian Rocks VFW next month.
We could try to get together for a colab if you want. Not sure what your schedule is like. I'm a stay at home dad and play music nights and weekends.
Awesome Sherry!! We'll finally get to meet 😮 )
I'm playing in Sunrise on Friday April 6th and looking to do a house concert or some kind of coffee house gig in Tampa st. Pete area if possible as well that would be for April 7th. Got any ideas?
I played at the old Mickey Quinn's. It's now called the Dog and Parrot Pub. Really cool little place.
I'm off of Ulmerton and Belcher. I just played a show down on Indian Shores the other night.
Thanks for dropping by to say hi, Sherry!! Always so very nice to "see" you!!!
Hi and glad you're here!
thanks! and welcome back!!!
Hey Sherry, right back atcha! Closing in on Febraury...
Hey Girl, Glad to see you back again...
Keepin an Eye out
Hi Sherry! Will be dropping by to see what you are creating!
Hi Sherry. Skirmish in a week!
Hi, Sherry! Yes, it's getting to be a habit. 😉
Thanks for the welcome, Sherry. I’m always delighted to hear from you!
Hi Sherry! Happy FAWMing!
Hey there Sherry, great to see you here again and ready to go!
*SO* good to see you around here again Sherry!! Looking forward (as always) to your wonderful additions to FAWM. 😀
Hello Sherry. Hope you have a snazzy jazzy Fawm.
Hi Sherry - let the good times roll!
Hi there! Yes - absolutely! Sticky note has been added to the board. My gear is ready and I have a backup! Good to have you back.
Hi Sherry, yes, will be amazing to collaborate with you.
You and I need (NEED) to do an album. Given my current February disasters, most of it is going to be in 5090, but perhaps we can think about it this FAWM and try things?
Hey Sherry! We'll keep trying.
Hey I'll be down in Florida April 6th for a gig. Will you be down there at that time?
Hola! Let's do this FAWM thing again!
Bon Jour! Hola! Hello!.....I think that about covers all the languages you speak.
Hi Sherry!! You're here! In all your modern vintage glory, I hope.
Thanks so much for that compliment on the album art. The original remarkable green/grey/white photo of a very cool succulent plant is not mine, but the alteration is all mine. That's another one of my obsessions - digital photo manipulation. I can while away WAY too much time doing that!!
Sherry! I hope you're going to swoop in at some point. Would love to hear what your muse is up to these days!
Hi Sherry. Snowbird again this year?
Sherry, just calling over to say Hi.
Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!
