I think this is my sixth FAWM!. So glad to be back. I'm going to be in the middle of moving for the whole month of February so a lot of my time will be spent between my old and new place AND my car. Somehow I'll try to make this work and have the road and the inconsistency of the month Feed the Muse. As usual I have no idea what I will come with and I'm very doubtful I'll even have anything and I say that every year.
Looking forward to hearing what you all come up with this year. Especially looking forward to collaborations and song morphing and of course the ever famous song skirmishes.
I love my FAWMily

    I'm so glad you liked my take on The Traveler! Thank you for allowing me to sing your words. I love your music, it's an honor to create with you 😀

    Hey Sonya! I just noticed someone beat me to the punch on The Traveler. 😞 Hopefully we can collaborate on something else at some point!

  • @jibbidy34  2 days

    Thank you so much for your amazingly kind words on 'Fire Pig' 😁 It was a total brain spill!

  • @johncrossman  3 days

    Yeah, I didn't think I would do that last skirmish either but I always do that during fawm. Just one more before turning in. Sleep is for other people!

    On your well-realized skirmish tune, your delivery of "mornin'" was wonderful. Worth the price of admission alone, but I wouldn't have wanted to miss the rest. 😀 Good stuff.

    Hi.. I went for a trip today but yet couldn't write well... I hope I still can write something it's so scary haha. Not that i'm writing amazing but at least I could finish songs, I feel my powers have been taken away... Anyway thank you, have a great week, I really like how you bless me with appropriate stuff.. and - about what you said about the skirmishes - I tried to make two today, you can see the results, you'll know what i'm talking about... Have a great night I'm off to sleep.

  • @haim  1 week

    Thank you! Have a shabat shalom too! Hope your fawm is going well? Im in some writing block hope ill feel better during the day.

  • @unpronounceable  1 week

    You made my heart die in a really good way! Thanks for your comments on Lady Corner <3

  • @johncrossman  1 week

    Thanks for the too kind comments! I'm working my way around and hearing so much good new music that didn't exist a well ago. Need to get a few more on the board too. You're of to a great start! Feel free to leave multiple comments accidentally whenever you want. 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  1 week

    Yep you gotta wait for the demo for that one. I just wanted to put it up there to force me to finish it. 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  1 week

    Hi Sonya, that was lovely note. It’s funny I was actually cursing my inability to update my site yesterday, nice to think there is old stuff there that has value, thank you!

  • @billwhite51 1 week

    Hi Sonya, thanks for what you had to say about raised in the rain, glad you caught the subtlety of the occasional alternate line ie raised by the rain. i played around a bit , using the chorus hook also as a refrain in the chorus. i didnt get to recise in what is different about seattle kids of the fifties, but it iprobably has to do with all their parents working at boeing, In what part of washington state have your family members lived?

  • @sunnymae  1 week

    Feeling that pressure to produce which does me no good. I get like this around now after heavy output. Guess I got spent. Waiting for energies to reemerge. It's only when I relax and open up to the energies that anything really good happens. Need to get back in that space. Just saying it out loud. Helps get me moving💜💛

    Hey, thanks for the positives on “3 Drinks Later.” Appreciate it!

  • @ustaknow 1 week

    😀 thanks, glad you enjoyed that.

    Yeah.... shimmy shimmy shake me -- got stuck in my head... hahhh... so, that's what happened. It's weird having an "artist" mind, aye, all sorts of krappe spinning round up there 😀

  • @haim  2 weeks

    I don't know why but I thought it's your first fawm, can you help me figuring out why I thought this way? Your'e having a great fawm so far.

  • @karlsburg25  2 weeks

    Well i don't know if its a happy key but it was the fact it was majoy key but had so much melencholoy that got me.x

  • @karlsburg25  2 weeks

    Thank you so much for your comments on everything. I never usually work like that, with regard to constant layering without much thought, but is seems to have worked. Can you believe it was going to be an acoustic tune!! hee hee.

  • @haim  2 weeks

    Two things - I just realized I called you Sonya on one of my comments, sorry for that. Second thing - I was truly touched by your comment on my song "After you bleed". Thank you, you explained in your comment my thoughts in a proper English. Gonna hear the rest of your songs now.

  • @johnstaples  2 weeks

    I got overwhelmed and ran out of time today but I will be back to listen to your 0203-A skirmish song!!

  • @haim  2 weeks

    Actually I heard now a song of yours from your website "Mother", the sample sounds great. "Mary Mary" is also peaceful. Looking forward for your songs. "NOMINATED BEST FEMALE SINGER SONGWRITER ALBUM" where can I vote for you?

  • @haim  2 weeks

    Hi Sonya, thanks for the kind help I appreciate your support. Looking forward to see how you sound. Feed the muse huh.. Good luck with that, it should be easier if you hang around the website and here other peoples songs if you are stuck. Toda Raba!

    Where in Florida?

  • @sherrycanary  3 weeks

    Hi girl
    Sorry we couldn't meet up last summer!

  • @devin  3 weeks

    Hi there!

    Spotted your post on the “numbers” thread.

    We are counting up from 1, and the next person has to name the next number without naming it... more like “describing it”, as if for a crossword puzzle hint.

    Yes, it’s dumb, because yes, we’re bored!

  • @johnstaples  3 weeks

    Hiya Sonya!! Happy FAWM 2018 my friend!
