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. 😀)

  • @guatecoop  Mar 1

    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.

  • @letterafterz Feb 28

    Susy all your tracks are awesome! Gotta do a proper listen/comment session!

  • @donna  Feb 27

    Thanks, @susyblue. No worries. 😀

  • @donna  Feb 26

    Just wondering whether you received my email?

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 23

    Hey Susy

    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

  • @judypie Feb 22

    Thanks for listening to Morals/decency/respect Susy! Verrrry excited to hear your collab with Ad!

  • @pcob1993  Feb 18

    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...
    Thank you...

  • @pcob1993  Feb 18

    Hahah, That's such a great line, made me grin like a lunatic...

  • @pcob1993  Feb 18

    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

  • @izaakalexander  Feb 18

    Thanks for the comment! You really ought to play a bit of flute for this FAWM, you have the skills!!!

  • @degausser  Feb 2017

    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!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2017

    Port Fairy? That's not til March I thought!

  • @degausser  Feb 2017

    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!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2017

    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. 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2017

    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!

  • @jbp123 Feb 2017

    Ah man You're Enough is a right ear worm!!! Already whistling it!

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2017

    Thank you a million, my sister.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2017

    You, my dear, have a gorgeous voice.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2017

    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 😉

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the kind words on "Equal to the Test."

  • @driftwood1  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the kind words. Are you volenteering to sing my la la las?

  • @petemurphy  Feb 2017

    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 😀

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2017

    thanks susie. Yeah i was a wee bit beatles immersed in Rishikesh. Mainly documentaries in between powercuts!!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2017

    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 😉

  • @sailingmagpie  Feb 2017

    Welcome back. Looking forward to hearing more of your stuff.

  • @shortdan  Feb 2017

    Well hello there 😀

  • @beat  Feb 2017

    Hi. My ears are open...

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2017

    Hi Suzy
    Can't wait to hear your offerings

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 2017

    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

  • @petemurphy  Jan 2017

    Hello Susy! Our lil labradoodle is so cool that we now how two! Bab's parents had another litter, so we now also have her little brother, Sid.
    How's your pup doing?

  • @alboe Jan 2017

    Hope to hear great ones from you again this year.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2017

    You are always one of my favorites.... can't wait to hear your wonderful madness again. 😀

  • @oddbod  Jan 2017

    hello once again

  • @petemurphy  Jan 2017

    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 😀

  • @adforperu  Jan 2017


  • @mdavisto Jan 2017

    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.
