I tried to write and perform my own songs, but nobody cared. Now I compose instrumental music at home. I'm still open to collabs.
I'm edsmaron on Instagram.

You are very welcome, it was a pleasure to comment. I'm looking forward to more. So many songs, can't wait to hear them.
Thank you for your comments on "Rise Up", I really appreciate it. I am glad my protest songs are connecting with people.
Thanks for your nice words on "Your Only Enemy". I have to think about how I can get back to the original style in that one.
Thanks! The sign-up sheet for the choir is still open. Would love to have your voice too.
Hi Ed. Thank you for your comments on the Poodle. That one turned out to be an interesting journey. Russ got some kind of epiphany and changed up the music a bit and ran with a whole new set of lyrics, but Sherry had already recorded mine, so it's now two songs with very similar musical backing. Hey, it's FAWM! Anyway, her version with my lyrics is up if you'd like to hear it 😀
I've had a blast, Ed!
Thanks for the comment! It is a strange thing, singing the word "ass".
There's some amazingly deep and stunningly beautiful music put out during FAWM (like your Dark Secrets collab) but it's SO good there are also musicians like you who know how to have pure unadulterated fun. Some of your song titles alone are worth the price of admission!
I love what you did with Why Won't You Listen!! What a fun thing to wake up to! Thank you. Could you please send me a copy of the song to firstname.lastname@example.org? I'd really appreciate it. If you have the music without vocals I'd love that too.
And, do you know if there's a way to mesh the two postings of the song together? Right now it's on my page twice, once with music and once without.
A great big Yes to putting music to my skirmish song Why Won't You Listen! I'd love that! 😀 And thank you for checking it out!
Ed, your comment on the forum about what will happen to your songs after FAWM still has me laughing. You're my first-ever FAWM collaboration and our song WILL live on! We have to believe it! 😁
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on You're Like A Song. I hope to add a demo soon. Curious - what genre do you see it as?
Thanks for your encouraging comments and support on my various superskirmish ramblings this past weekend. It was great fun playing with you and the other folks for all those hours. Have a great week.
Thanks for the nice comment and the listen!
I like your bio on your profile. Thanks for your comments on my angry troll song. I'm trying to learn to channel my emotions through my writing. It's taken me a long time to be brave. I appreciate the encouragement 😀
Thanks for listening and commenting on "I Want To Dance With You". Hope those big speakers sound good. 😉
Thanks for visiting, listening and commenting. I just listened to "Dark Secrets" and was blown away.
Dude! you rock guy! I love that. You turned it into a sountrack. I loved the dramatic way you handled the bridge.... Fantastic! Thank you so much!
Hi there! You may certainly play around with my lyrics Blood on my hands 😀 Have fun with it!!
Hi Ed! Listening again as I type! This sounds wonderful...very natural! Eventually I'd like to download it as an mp3 & put it with my Soundclick songs if that's okay. Sure, on the Instagram clip...I don't have an account though. Thank you so much for your work on this!! 😀 I haven't heard back about the other version.
Wow! You captured the spirit of my lyrics perfectly with the piano, guitar, and haunting echo on the strong vocals - you nailed the swirling secrets part in the chorus - hard for my to write down in black and white words that I wanted the swirling to really swirl as if to haunt and torment the keeper of the secrets and you picked that up. Brilliant!!! I thousand thanks. If you want something else let me know. I think you had mentioned one - -Speak --- I was supposed to do a collab with someone else so I had written that for him to consider but I haven't yet heard back from him.
Thanks for listening to my Drummer in the Neighborhood and your kind comments. 😀
Of course!!! I would love it!
I would love to do a collab with you if you are ever interested- if so let me know!
You are very welcome. Thank you for your great support!
Hi thanks for your comment on Divided We Stand
Hi Ed! Gee, thanks! 😀 Well you know, I can see it though I don't think the notifications (@kristi) work in all sections. Not sure. You've already done a fabulous job on it, but whatever you'd like to do is fine by me! 😀 I look forward to it! Thank you!! (And I'll let you know if that other version materializes)
Glad to hear that people like it, Ed. It's a fun piece the way you did it!
Thanks for letting me know my link wasn't working! 😀
Hi Ed! Thanks for your comment on my challenge lyric, el gorrito! Yeah, I'm a fan of Linda Ronstadt.
That would be awesome, Ed. If you do, I'll be very excited to hear what you come up with.
Thanks and a wall of sound would be awesome.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment! I appreciate you taking the time. I'd love to hear something from you so I'll be back to check!
