Hellooo! So happy to be back in the fawm community again for yet another year - my 7th!!! 😀 I've still been pretty existential crisis-y on the songwriting front so Feb is my seemingly one time per year to smash it! I've been playing in a 20s new orleans band mainly lately so let's so if that filters in.
Up for collabs if I can fit em in - unfortunately for us southerners Feb coincides with my day-job teaching year starting back boooooo but I'll definitely still have some time set aside.
Thanks so much in advance for the fawm love and support, let's go!
15th Feb UPDATE: Gah a weekend away, a little waning of the enthusiasm coupled with the back to work blues has interrupted my flow. But got a little recording in tonight and had fun again, so huzzah. More time on the weekend so will hopefully get back into the swing AND get some more listening in to repay the comment love

Thanks for another beautiful batch of songs, Susy. (And yep, definite coal wankery. 😀)
Hey, suzyblue....I just wanted to thank you and post my comment about your collab with @degausser ....
Wow, this is exactly what amazes me about singers. I love the thought out vision and then the outcome!! I heard about this collab proposal and was so excited to hear what came out of it. Then, @suzyblue watchlisted me yesterday and I knew it was coming. The piccolo and both spectacular voices turned it into a movie, of sorts. Truly amazing what great people do. Thank you. I'm floored and flattered.
Susy all your tracks are awesome! Gotta do a proper listen/comment session!
Just wondering whether you received my email?
Hope you I have time to check something of mine out before FAWM is over.
I have a few Gypsy Jazzy and one jazz standard, bla bla bla
Thanks for listening to Morals/decency/respect Susy! Verrrry excited to hear your collab with Ad!
Sorry, pressed save too soon..... This will be in my mind for ages, call in well....., there's already a glimmer of a lyric shining through the murk...
Hahah, That's such a great line, made me grin like a lunatic...
Have you EVER made my day Susyblue, thank you so much. I'm working 12 hr days so I can't get to a space where I can sit with the guitar... Arghhhhhhh......... I love FAWM and Fawmers, this is my third I think, and I've made one or two awesome friends over the last two so I'll be in touch and maybe we can share or collab... This year I'm finally going to cut all ties with work and just play my guitar and piano and get better on clarinet.. Fuck it, life is too short...
Later my dear, to your music
Thanks for the comment! You really ought to play a bit of flute for this FAWM, you have the skills!!!
No worries, and yes, great! It's not too late at all - I've not even started yet. 😀 It'll probably be later in the week/weekend now. Got some catching up to do over here too!
Port Fairy? That's not til March I thought!
Susy! Do you fancy collaborating with me on one of @guatecoop's somgs? It's called The unviversal hope. I've sorta thought of a 1st verse and chorus and wondered if you would like to sing a second verse and generally put your vocal touches wherever? This all stems from @adforperu joking about us doing a collaboration together!
Hey if you want any double bass on anything or want to try to collaborate there are about 3 FAWMers who could move me to fitting it in and you are one of them. 😀
Hey lovely Suzy, can't believe I haven't dropped by yet to say hi and have a listen. What a treat with my morning coffee!
Ah man You're Enough is a right ear worm!!! Already whistling it!
Thank you a million, my sister.
You, my dear, have a gorgeous voice.
TO be fair I had my usual first demo sounds and noises and Dave is excellent at taking that and making words fit the noises and word sounds I make in demo if i after quick song. And Osho is hilarious as well. He doesn't hold back on talking a bit potty mouth which cracks me up. What's the book called on creativity? or maybe you mentioned it in the song notes and i being lazy 😉
Thanks for the kind words on "Equal to the Test."
Thanks for the kind words. Are you volenteering to sing my la la las?
I'm glad Ziggy is doing well. Hope you had a great time in India. Looking forward to hearing more of your ace music over the coming weeks 😀
thanks susie. Yeah i was a wee bit beatles immersed in Rishikesh. Mainly documentaries in between powercuts!!
Susie definitely up for Indian themed collab. I was in rishikesh only two weeks ago. Got stuck there as loved it rather a lot. Ooo wish I'd known as ended up gigging with dreadlocked harmonium player from states. We could have wowed them with our western magic 😉
Welcome back. Looking forward to hearing more of your stuff.
Well hello there 😀
Hi. My ears are open...
Can't wait to hear your offerings
Hey susy. Well i haven't quite reached down under yet but am halfway (if India is halfway;-) ) Hope you well Missy and cannot wait to hear yer tunes and in exchange you will get to hear FRANNICK (my wretched indian guitar) x
Hope to hear great ones from you again this year.
You are always one of my favorites.... can't wait to hear your wonderful madness again. 😀
hello once again
I hope you're around this year, 'cos you're all the ace-ness.
Your song 'You've Got Time' from last year is still stuck firmly in my head, and it's probably my favourite of all the FAWM songs I've heard over that last six years.
I hope you're well 😀
I've learned a lot from my kids. For instance, because I admire you, I'm going to hit you with this stuffed bear and then run away.
