Artist Bio

Influences:   All kinds of stuff. I mostly play rock or jam out on some acoustic guitar.

Hi! I'm Val. I've been doing FAWM for forever. [Not sure if I should insert a smiley face or crazy, shocked face here] I'm a guitarist and vocalist. Not sure what the plan is this year. Possibly a few phone recordings. Not sure I want to go all out with the all the studio stuff. Maybe the bug will bite me when February starts.
++++
Here's what I play on my demos
Me: Guitars, Bass, Vocals. Things I may attempt to play, but kinda suck at: drums, piano, sax.

Artificial Creative Unit: Drums that sound good (Addictive Drums), keyboards/synths and anything else you hear

    Re: "Something From The '70s", I also referenced Carole King ("Where You Lead") and Kenny Loggins ("Danny's Song"). I know there are just as many songs from the '80s about making it through hard times, but the '70s are more my aesthetic. πŸ˜€

  • @helenseviltwin  8 weeks

    Yep! Thanks for your help on that.

  • @nuerdetjuligen  8 weeks

    Wow Valerie! You are a super trooper. 28 songs? My hat is off to you and I bow down. Way to GET it!

  • @helenseviltwin  8 weeks

    Woop woop! Double FAWM!

  • @nancyrost  8 weeks

    Congratulations on your double FAWM!

  • @kahlo2013  8 weeks

    Thanks for checking out some of my recent songs.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 23

    ❀️

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 21

    Thanks for checking out 'Wanting You' - some lyrics are very easy to writeπŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  Feb 21

    Thanks Val. Didn't Tammy do it great?

  • @repsurepa Feb 20

    Thank you so much for listening! I'm glad you enjoyed, eventhough the language of course gives it another angle 😝

  • @wacha  Feb 20

    Thank you for your kind words on "Vivian", it's always little nerve wracking for me when I decide to take on another person's lyrics.

  • @tcelliott  Feb 19

    Thank you so much for buying the album, Val. I appreciate it a lot. I hope you find a song or two that you enjoy.

  • @pornstache  Feb 17

    Thank you for taking the time to read "Better Off". Seemed too simplistic at first but have gotten enough encouragement to where I might see if the musical brains of our "group" can put it to music. Thanks again and good luck the rest of the way.

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 16

    Hey Val! Thanks for listening to "Fragile"-- glad somebody mentioned my tag reference! Haha. Man, I can't believe I haven't made it over here yet, gonna change that now!

  • @aprilm  Feb 16

    Thanks Val! Rain was a wonderful collab experience. Glad you enjoyed it

  • @cindyrella  Feb 15

    Thanks Val. I wouldn't wonder if it was an alien (as I have had many dreams of them coming to upgrade my DNA! πŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 15

    Thanks..I thought about adding a bridge/outro -actually I had written one --that addressed why the collections and what they mean now- it is more than what they are - they are now momentos they remind me of the moments pre kids When K and I would actually have time to spend with each other driving through the country side when through Connecticut Vermont Maine California Ireland Croatia - wherever picking up a used souvenir from a market - each of the items evokes a memory beyond what the item is - it is like a history of our lives that we put on hold as the priorities have been different - I long for the day when we can spend more time and until then these objects remind me of a specific adventure we shared

  • @roadreg Feb 14

    Thanks for the feedback on 'Ti Amo'! In Italy there are stray cats everywhere and they all want to snuggle!

  • @pambowen1 Feb 14

    Thanks, Valerie, for reading "More and More" and commenting so kindly on it. Yes, let's spread the LOVE today and every day.:)

  • @phylo  Feb 14

    Hi Val! Thanks for your kind words to my song for Chance. I'm demoing that tonight! I already have the guitar down... I'll stop by tonight and listen to a few of yours as well!

  • @meadows  Feb 14

    Hey Val, thank you for your kind words. The vocals are simply layered. In the chorus I doubled the main voice and added a pitchshifter effect similar to Autotune.

  • @tamsnumber4 Feb 13

    Love you Val, I am in need of courage and a boost of spirits before a performance tomorrow and I really appreciate what you said, means lots coming from you. Thank you.

  • @jamkar  Feb 13

    Thank you Val! I will be back for cool listening here!

  • @ferry0123 Feb 12

    πŸ˜€ Thanks.

  • @ballyhoot  Feb 12

    Hey, Val, thanks for your comment on my song "These Eyes." Perhaps the lyrics are too vague. "These Eyes" are supposed to refer to the eyes of the singer's former lover/girlfriend, who the singer has lost (through her death or otherwise), but she ("these eyes") continues to haunt him and interferes with his ability to connect with his current love interest, who is the "you" in the song.

    Anyway, I agree with you about the FOP, but so far not very much interest is being expressed on the forum. Maybe I should create a new thread labeled "Who wants to have a Texas Fawm Over Party"??

  • @ferry0123 Feb 12

    Got one for ya πŸ˜‰

  • @cindyrella  Feb 12

    Thanks Val on our collab and I had to laugh at you yolo comment!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 12

    Thanks for checking out my river song it is a subtle metaohor for love running away as the river is icy cold, there are dark shadows, and the river is ebbing and flowing inviting other streams... and the second verse there is warmth that the singer is looking for - show me this- but the rivers still flows away. So glad you liked it.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    Ummm.. I am flattered?

  • @jorh Feb 10

    Sorry to hear about your friends daughter, I wish her well in her recovery! Glad the song gave hope though through the sadness

  • @dudachris Feb 10

    Thanks for showing me how to link dropbox properly. The way I did it last year was clearly not right...

  • @lhcisco  Feb 9

    Ha! It's the theme song from The $100,000 Pyramid! All the music is straight from the theme too. I just added the bassline.

  • @wacha  Feb 9

    I think I have an after market power supply for my Tascam too. Before I realized what was going on with the power supply I thought it had completely died on me. I've knocked the power loose so many times, luckily it's almost always before I get started but just to be safe I shut it down to make sure things get saved.

    I laughed out loud at your comment on Vivian, total phrasing. I'm hoping to get to Vivian this weekend.

  • @toms  Feb 9

    Thank you, Valerie! πŸ˜€

  • @dragondreams  Feb 9

    Now I'm blushing. You are very kind, Val. πŸ˜€

  • @judypie  Feb 9

    That should say friends daughter! I don't know how to edit comments 😬

  • @judypie  Feb 9

    Woah sorry to hear that about your daughters friend Val! I will hope the same for her. Thank you for listening

  • @dani312 Feb 9

    Hey, thanks for the comment! That is really helpfully to hear your thoughts on the tune.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 8

    Thanks for the kind words on My Friend. I love the FAWM community and that's my thank-you letter to everyone here!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 8

    Thank you Val! No one has ever said they liked my bass playing before. Much appreciated!

  • @andybalham Feb 8

    Thanks for the comment on 'B******ds'. Sometimes a song can't wait around at the start πŸ˜€

  • @brrrse  Feb 8

    Thanks for the great words on my song 9 of swords πŸ˜€ This card can look scary when you first see it but it really isn't. In the tarot, each suit starts at the Ace (one) and moves through to the King. As you move through the numbers, you're on a Journey - the 9 of Swords is the "wakeup" card - the realization that this isn't a good place - so it's a turning card leading to the 10 of swords which I lovingly call "You done yet? or you wanna wallow a little longer" ... at 9, you're just waking up and saying "I don't have to feel this way anymore"... I hope I"ve helped a bit. You are an amazing, and talented musician and I love your work!

  • @mishykatz  Feb 8

    Thanks for the zong comment on Tell Me More, much appreciated!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 7

    If you still want to collab on something let me know! My schedule is crazy so not sure I will have a chance to make any music so I am hoping to work with musicians

  • @mikegtz  Feb 7

    Got your message, that's fine. Maybe something else might work.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 6

    Thanks for your listen to my Jimmy Buffett song!

  • @ferry0123 Feb 6

    btw, Yes, headphones...I'd recommend them πŸ˜€

  • @ferry0123 Feb 5

    Thanks a lot for your nice comment today! πŸ˜€

  • @haim  Feb 5

    Hi. Thank you Valerie (what a beautiful name) for a very nice comment on my song "Wishing too much".. You figured almost exactly the feeling and I respect and appreciate your support and encouragement. I'm gonna make sure to check your songs tomorrow, thanks again, have a lovely fawm.

  • @kristian  Feb 5

    ops. thanks for letting me know πŸ˜€

  • @wacha  Feb 5

    Thank you for your kind words on "Start Again", it's always nice when a song can touch people the same way writing it touched me.

  • @mattpierce  Feb 5

    Hi, welcome back!

  • @aprilm  Feb 4

    Hi there Val!! Glad to see you here!

  • @kevinemmrich  Feb 3

    Glad to put the APX500iii to use! I think my Takamine is slightly above the APX in a live setting (The tak is about a $300 guitar), but I think if I learn how to EQ the new guitar it might become even. For $200, though, I think it was a good investment!

  • @mikegtz  Feb 3

    Val, I don't know if this is workable for you but check out: http://fawm.org/songs/78174/

  • @mikegtz  Feb 1

  • @rickamorphis  Jan 31

    Hi Val! I too am coming in with no real plan this year. Glad you're here, I'll be listening.

  • @dee Jan 30

    Hi Val, glad to see you're here. Would love to do another collab if possible x

  • @auditasum Jan 30

    Yeah... I grew up in a family that was obsessed with '70s folk and rock. And for a straight woman, my mom owned a lot of Tracy Chapman and Indigo Girls albums.

  • @auditasum Jan 29

    Glad you're back! I like the new cover as well.

  • @kristian  Jan 28

    Cool cover! Have a wonderful FAWM!
