Susan, thanks for your comments on my songs. Truly appreciated. I see you've been busy!
hmmm. I don't know why you didn't find recording of I Don't Want to Carry A Gun. Maybe I was editing. Try again. It's video..
My "go to" on the phone this year.
Congratulations winner. Missed it altogether. You're already up to 17
I may make it too, but I still have that "one short of 14 blues" from several years back
Thanks for the comment! 😀
Thank you so much!
I'm especially glad you liked/got the message of the song : )
I've been thinking about those communication things a lot lately, so it was nice to get it out in the form of a song.
Thanks for your kind words on "Rain". The piano is a digital Roland HP1800, but it sure plays like a real one. Thanks for checking out my music!
Thanks for listening to "Out of the Fog" as well. And apparently uncovering the hidden metaphor that I didn't even notice. So, unbeknownst to me I guess its just another song about a girl. haha Thanks for pointing that out.
Thx a lot for you´re uplifting comments on "Windswept clouds" Nice to hear.
Thanks for listening. Yes it's been quite a thrill to try my hand at a different genre.. I would love to pursue that instrument combo more!
Thank you so much for your kind words, means so much
Thanks for listening, Susan. Admittedly there are some other collabs that would showcase a little more diversity of the genres and subject matter I like, but time and opportunity are slim! I’ll be back for more!
Thanks again Susan. That drum was my fingers going 1000Mph to last the whole song 😉
Thanks for your comment Susan. Yeah i struggle with panning being deaf in one ear so no idea what it sounds like. Hope it worked
You sound like the singer who sings the Talahachee bridge song. 😀
Susan! I need to catch up on your music! I wrote a couple of songs where I thought of you as I wrote given your gorgeous music and lovely soprano. Not sure if you would have time or interest on a collab this year but if you do I would be very interested - here are the couple - where I thought of you and would also be happy to try something different or co-writing something. Let me know if you are interested in something ! http://fawm.org/forums/topic/8109/
Hey, thanks for the comments/feedback on my tune!
Thank you very much for your kind comment 😁
Thanks so much for your kind comment!
Anyone who quotes Tom Lehrer is okay in my book. Thanks for the thoughtful words.
Thanks Susan. I was 32 when I married. Sorry he saw it first. 😀
Thank you for your kind words on "Start Again".
Thank you for your kind comment Susan! Actually I used samples of base and drums, so no secrets, sorry 😞
I’m looking forward to more your songs.
Thanks so much for your comment. Welcome back to FAWM.
Hehe thank you for your kind comments Susan. I wish I could find confidence in my own ability!
Thanks for that surreal version of Creature! It is so good!
Looking good for another Feb
Thanks Susan. I didn't see the Shape of Water as yet. though I want to. Have a go of it, if you want.
Hi, Susan! I just signed on to look around a bit before the new fawm starts and found your comment on my song "Honey in the Cup". I'm so pleased that it called out to you and perhaps missed the boat this go round, but if you truly like it and find yourself bored, by all means, give it a go. Happy New Year and I hope we get to connect this fawm.
