Hi, I'm Gabrielle! What I write is closest to filk, otherwise known as fantasy, sci-fi, and convention music. I was alerted to this site by other filkers in 2014, and it sounded like fun. Year 4 it is! Library Science and Art History Master's graduate here, with several fantasy novels in the works. If you want to get in touch with me 'cause something looks nifty, or you have a question unrelated to my work, feel free to send me a message. I like meeting new people. Good luck everyone!
Sent you an email Gabrielle. 😀
Hi Gabrielle. Can you send me some lyrics!
Thanks, no worries. Will do.
Thanks for listening and commenting!! I am behind on everything; sorry it took so long to say thanks. Look forward to your other two tunes I haven't been able to check out yet!
Thanks for the comment on Kittens. I'm glad someone realized that the "burger" bit wasn't completely random. 😀
Hi Gabrielle! Thank you very much for sharing your kind comments on a couple of my songs today. I'm glad to have listened to your demo so I now have a voice to go with your wonderful profile illustration. 🙂
Refering to SwanDragon: Now I'm thinking that the mechanical noises would make sense if you imagined then made by a dancing clockwork robot on top of the music box!
Thanks for your comment on " If The Year Were A Day" ...much appreciated. I have posted a demo if you care to give a listen. Thanks again.
Thanks for listening to my song "Underneath The Tree", I appreciate it.
Thanks for listening to my song "Nightmare of a Dream", I appreciate it!
Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my song 😁 I'm still developing production skillz 😝 but I really enjoy it! So it means a lot that you think they're solid!
I listened to your voice and edited my comment. 😀
Sure Gabrielle, email works for me!
Hi collab partner! How would you like to proceed?
@tawny249 Thank you so much for your comment, friend! <3 Yeah, the rhythm probably doesn't seem too apparent from the lyrics, but I hope it'll be really clear once I get the thing recorded!
I'm very glad you find it meaningful and like the imagery (that's where a lot of the strength in my poetry lies, I think). I put a helluva lot of time into this song, and I'm honestly a little nervous I won't be able to top it for the rest of FAWM. 🙈 But I'm sure that'll mean a bunch of silly things, which is necessary to balance out all the heaviness. Again, thank you so much! <3
Thank you for your lovely comment!
Thanks for listening, Gabrielle! Yes, it's very chorus-heavy. Mainly because this is FAWM and that was how the song wrote itself *knowing* this is FAWM. Polishing is for later. ; )
Hi! Thanks for the wonderful note. <3 I hope that FAWM provides something of a distraction,
On the bright side, I'm so stressed by everything else that I'm barely nervous about FAWM at all! 😉
Have a great FAWM Gabrielle!
Good luck, Gabrielle! Have an excellent FAWM.
Hiya! I'm stoked you dig my stuff 😁 I call it geek pop as it's more pop than rap, but it's somewhere within that geeky music realm in which filk lives! I might actually do something filkier for this year's FAWM as I think a more acoustic vibe will really suit the Grimm EP idea I'm working with... It's just so hard to resist synths 😝
Looking forward to hear what you create!!
Found you back 😀
You'll do amazing I'm 100% sure!
Hello again Gabrielle.. back again this year you are.
May the FAWM be with you
YESSS you do write too, I knew it!
Hello from Fort Myers, right up the road! I listened to a few of your songs on Soundcloud - lovely voice. Reminds me of some of the Celtic/Irish music my daughter enjoys - she's an aspiring singer.
Looking forward to hearing what you do this FAWM!
Hello, thanks for your kind words! Glad to meet you!
Good luck to you too ; hope you have a great FAWM. 😀
Hi, Gabrielle, yes - I'm on the moderating team and take care of posting the weekly challenges. It sounds like you have a lot of creative irons in the fire! I look forward to hearing what you do this year.
Thanks! I didn't think it was that obscure; seemed self-evident every time I looked at my foot. LOL. Anyway, yeah, a lot of instruments = more fun. Not going to say I'm proficient at any of them! Have a great FAWM!
Hey there! Here's to a great FAWM!
