FAWM #6 for me!

I am a lyricist who usually writes for guys to sing, but might start having a mixed bag this year. Who knows?! I just know I love FAWM and it's FUN!

So some changes since last FAWM... I no longer write for a specific band, but starting to work with more than just one cowriter which is nice. I have a new company called Write & Wrong Music where I help get people on internet radio, starting slow right now with a couple local bands as it is not just getting them on the radio, but teaching them about band promotion, music business, etc.

I have a friend here in Maine that plans on joining us this year so please check him out. He's a multi-talented local musician so looking forward to what he does this month. He's gonna be a little slow to start perhaps as he has a vacation coming up the first week. Anyway, go to his profile and click the Watch button @fourthtunz62

In July, I'm moving to Pennsylvania to hopefully write with Pooch and have some other things going on down there as well. Last June I went down and met @the3queens. Lori is awesome! Went to Gettysburg and did the haunted tour of the orphanage. Pretty cool stuff! Lots of amazing history down there!!

There's more stuff going on, too, but won't bore you all with the details right now...just wanna focus on getting February started and visiting all your pages!!

Oh, and I love Fireball and jello shots, and coffee, lots and lots of coffee!


P.S. Suggestions welcomed; however, this is a timed challenge so not really the place for it. However, if you have the inclination, I'm always appreciative and offer the same if wanted.

    Oh thank you for all amazing comments on my songs. I am so greatful <3

  • @famouspatrick  15 hours

    Thanks for the nice comment on my "Face" song. Yeah, first time I used "Apaloosa" in a song. I think I'm gonna write a chorus for that song and keep it.

  • @oblivionratula  23 hours

    I'm sorry my bird got you 'tiel worked up. πŸ˜‰ Have you heard my "Quaker Conversation?" You'll definitely not want to play that one out loud around him/her. 😁 Thanks for the kind words on the track as well. When I was dumbfounded for more lyrics, I was annoyed, but I think it does kind of stand on its own with those 7 or so lines. I really appreciate the listen.

  • @jamkar  23 hours

    Cheryl, we had an ice storm that coated all the trees. Very pretty, but PIA when limbs bow down and snap electric lines. Warmer temps today with major thaw. No, February isn't supposed to work like this! :-O

  • @wacha  23 hours

    thank you for your kind words on "Damaged" and "I'm Okay With That", it's always a privilege for me to work with @crisp1's lyrics. A lot ofwhat he write really suites me.

  • @wacha  23 hours

    Thank you for your kind words on "Living In Love", I had a lot of fun working on that one.

    Thank you so much for your kind words on "Follow Me" which is what I am now calling the song. I had considered using that a the title but wasn't 100 percent committed to it.

    Great! Thanks! 😁

    Cheryl, thanks for the generous comments on "Pinhole through the Veil" by Klaus and me. I appreciate your time and thoughtfulness.

  • @klaus 1 week

    Cheryl, thanks for comments. Ah, Land of Vampyres. You remembered! Could be it's that song that started this gloomy anti-Klaus thing. πŸ˜€

  • @lanasolyluna 1 week

    Thanks so much for your comment.

  • @cnidaria  1 week

    Thanks for the comment! I wonder if by chance you’re talking about my old FAWM account. I ended up switching profiles a couple years ago (something I wish I hadn’t done). I know I’ve seen you before on here, but it’s so hard to remember from which year.

  • @kc5 1 week

    Oh goodness! You’ve got the groove going, girl!! Look at all your songs! Thanks for commenting on my song ☺️.

    Thanks for your comments on 10 Of Wands. I had a lot of fun doing the Tarot challenge again this year. I'm glad you heard hwo I captured the symbolism of the card in sound.

    See You In The Shadows…

    Thanks for your comments on Gone too Soon!

  • @darkmantle  1 week

    Thanks for the Tarot card, looks like it fits with my theme this year. πŸ˜€

    Also, thanks for the comment on In the Flames. That lyric seems to catch a lot of people!

  • @clioem 2 weeks

    Hi! thanks, all is! Just- the busy-ness has finally consumed my time and I don't think I can FAWM effectively this year. I hope to pop out a little song at some point but don't hold your breath. However, here to cheer you on!

  • @marvsmooth  2 weeks

    Hi Cheryl, thanks for the welcome. I’m sort of here now, but not sure in what capacity just yet - just a listener or writer...

    I’ll be checking some songs out soon. πŸ˜€

  • @jonmeta  2 weeks

    Cheryl, thank you for your lengthy comment, your willingness to open up and share how the song spoke to you. That means a lot. As one introvert to another. Yes, FAWM is a warm hug of a community, the kind of hug that says, You can do this, you can do better, now go!

    Thank you for your kind comments on Springtime. I really like that one. I intend to get to more of your songs over the weekend.

  • @ggallagher 2 weeks

    Hi Cheryl! Thanks for listening. I do like the idea of making the full title β€œI am the ocean”

  • @gordon  2 weeks

    Hi Cheryl, thanks for visiting and leaving a fine comment. I know it's not 50/90 and I honestly don't know what comes over me in February. I have a great time though. Going to listen to your collab with Klaus again.

  • @metalfoot  2 weeks

    I've only ever met 3 FAWMers, and two of them long before I knew of a FAWM...Thanks for listening to "My Friend"!

  • @musicbyzac 2 weeks

    Hey, thanks for taking the time to comment on my song "Tonight" - I try to write from life, so if it hits someone in the feels a little then I consider it a success! I'm usually a lyricist, but my goal is to have demos for all of my FAWM songs, but it's making getting them posted take a lot longer lol

  • @brrrse  2 weeks

    Thanks for the great words on Time to let you go - actually, I started my album "Nine of Swords" for FAWM2018 - I actually laid out some cards, and this album concept came to life. It's all in this style - and it's all tarot - I have an old Rider Waite deck. My card for the challenge is 6 of wands, and I'm still workin on that one πŸ˜€

  • @oblivionratula  2 weeks

    Thank you for the comments on Mother of Swords, and thank you for the beautiful inspiration!!! I love the idea of pulling a card to see where it takes you. Later in then month I may revisit my or my wife's decks.

  • @klaus 2 weeks

    Hi Cheryl. Demo should be ready by tomorrow evening. I'll post it as a new song. I've been working hard ( at work ) and drinking some ( at home ) like a nice little goth. 😞

  • @jinx 2 weeks

    Cheryl, thanks for dropping by my soundboard and apologies for the delayed answer! Happy FAWM to you 😁

  • @pambowen1 2 weeks

    Thanks, Cheryl, for affirming my "Sit Around" song. Today at the gym, the trainer told us that new research says you should NOT stretch before exercise, contrary to what we have been told for years. Sheesh!

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    Thanks for the fantastic comment on mine and @arthurrossi collab.

    Reg the other its good that you are out from that relation. Yes live and learn is the key πŸ˜€ Although we must allow ourselves to be humans and do mistakes.

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  2 weeks

    The song I wrote with @ajna1960 all happened in an hour. It doesn't hurt that we write songs with each other all year long and have a very quick flow. Literally, WHILE she was writing lyrics I was just creating a musical track. So, I basically jammed her lyrics into my music. We both have the ability to work super duper fast.

  • @kahlo2013  2 weeks

    Jell-O shots?? Interesting bio and I hope your work is everything you want it to be!

    Thanks for the nice comments on "Dopey Hacienda." I am actually a HUGE Jimmy Buffett fan, we just disagree on the mobile home thing.

  • @postcardhelicopters  3 weeks

    Thanks for visiting my FAWM opener!

    The drums are straight CMI Fairlight sample. I pulled it up and did **nada** except say, "yep! This is it!" and gave it a loose rein.

    Thanks for your comment on "Down To The Ocean." Uep it's a FAWM song. Written right after midnight on Feb 1st. Since I've started using Band In A Box it's become realy easy to makes some great sounding tunes on the fly. Thanks for listening.
