Artist Bio

Influences:   I guess I have a sort of Sara Berailles sound, although I listen to a lot of musicians that play in a different style than I do. Recently I've been really into St. Vincent.

I'm 16 and I feel like I haven't written a good song since the summer. I'd like to change that.

    Thanks for the kind words on my "Holding Together" skirmish song. At the time I'm writing this you are one song away from a trophy! Nice FAWMing!

  • @wacha  Feb 22

    Thank you for your kind words on "Damaged", the lyrics I were given were wonderfully sad. I am glad I was able to pay them the respect they deserved.

  • @kraftec Feb 20

    Hey, I'm going to start working on an instrumental track for Shirlington (if you're still up for it). Any ideas or stuff for genre or style or whatever? I don't want to mess up your song 😀

  • @crisp1  Feb 19

    I appreciate you reading Coat of Dust and taking the time to make a nice comment about it!

  • @willie70hawkins Feb 2018

    Thanks for your kind review of Round and Round.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 2018

    Thx for your comment, i was brought up with reggae but the furst time i have written with it!

  • @yam655 Feb 2018

    Yeah, all my songs this year are improvised. I used to just improvise my first draft, but then I started practicing improvising for a full three minutes. Some of my "actually-an-album" postings go so far as having song titles improvised from the earlier song.

    My standard process:
    1. Start recording.
    2. Start singing
    3. Find out what I'm singing about.

    Thanks for the listen. 😀

  • @alphanerg Feb 2018

    write a 17 second song about the earth exploding.

  • @stuartbenbow  Feb 2018

    Hi! Thanks for giving my songs, In The Park, Herding Kittens, Bodies and Bucks, and It's Spam a listen, and taking the time to leave your thoughts. I'm so glad you enjoyed them.

  • @srcoops Feb 2018

    Thank you for your kind words regarding My Treasure.

  • @jonmeta  Feb 2018

    Thank you so much for responding right away to the shooting song, and for your assurance that the tone is alright. I sincerely hope your cousin is OK, at least relative to what could have been. It’s hard to know what to do, and shouting doesn’t seem to help. Everybody is a potential victim and it doesn’t matter what side of the second amendment you’re on when the bullets start flying. I was trying to bring out that human dimension, and how quickly things can change for anyone. You’re living it right now. Thank you again, Skyler. All best wishes for FAWM success!

  • @dutch1967 Feb 2018

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 2018

    yes i know its broken. I was in the middle of fixing it when my device gave up and broke. I am sourcing a replacement and hope to get it right very shortly - thx for your patience - will let you know

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 2018

    Thank you very much for the comment on the collab track with Colleen! Glad you liked it!

  • @yam655 Feb 2018

    Have you heard of the 60 / 30 / 10 rule? (I heard about it first from YouTuber Jonathan Mann.) It states that regardless of how many songs you make, 60% will be mediocre, 30% will be bad, and 10% will be awesome. If these numbers can't change, then the only way to write more awesome songs is to make more songs period.

    I like skirmishes because they help introduce you to a lot of songs without encouraging you to make a commitment to any of them. You'll naturally commit to the songs you love and over time refine them and make them better, but all those ho-hum songs and outright bad songs can be left alone.

    I hope you enjoy FAWM!

  • @benjo  Feb 2018

  • @haim  Feb 2018

    Hi Sky. Thank you for the great comment on my song "Wishing Too Much", I added even more stuff to make the song less boring, I'd love if you'll check out my profile to hear the new version and tell me what you think about the improved one because I might take this song a bit further after fawm. How is your progress going? have any struggles to come out with the fourth song?

  • @kraftec Feb 2018

    The song has been updated with your vocals

    http://fawm.org/songs/77457/

    Thanks again for the collab. Your voice sounds great and it really fits the track 😀

  • @stuartbenbow  Feb 2018

    Hi, thanks for giving dance of the fae a listen. Those “drums” were actually me banging on the body of my acoustic guitar. 😀

  • @haim  Feb 2018

    Sure, just trying to help you feel more welcomed and involved here. Would love to hear more from you this fawm. Have fun!

  • @haim  Feb 2018

    dear @skylermf Hi. I see you commented back on your song "Never saw you coming" to all of the people, it's really nice, however, if you want to really make all of them (including me) them see the comments, you need to write it on their soundboard. That's the way usually people comment to each other. Even when someone writes on your soundboard and you wanna write back, you would do this on his soundboard, tagging people on your soundboard is not notifying the people, I'm not sure why but this is how things work around here (Just a quick review of what I said and you'll see how easy it is to get used to it). Hope you'll have a nice fawm, until now you are doing great! Don't hesitate if you have any question!

  • @inger  Feb 2018

    Thank you for you kind comment on I'll paint the wall blue 😀

  • @skylermf Feb 2018

    @kraftec Awesome! I already wrote some lyrics, and I should have some time to record by the end of today

  • @kraftec Feb 2018

    Ok great. There's no rush so feel free to take your time with it. Also at the start or the end of the recording if you could just sing and hold a note for a few seconds. I'll use that to create harmonies and such. Thanks again for doing this 😀

  • @skylermf Feb 2018

    @kraftec I can do that, and I’d love to write lyrics

  • @kraftec Feb 2018

    Thanks for the offer to do vocals on my track. Isolated vocals would be perfect. For sending the vocals over you could upload to Soundcloud and enable downloads or you could use Dropbox. Do you write lyrics?

  • @skylermf Feb 2018

    @fearlessflight2014 thank you so much, I can’t wait to start!

  • @skylermf Feb 2018

    @petra777 thank you!!

  • @petra777  Jan 2018

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 2018

    When I was sixteen I hadn't written ANY song!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 2018

    Welcome! I really hope you have a great month of writing and make lots of new friends!
