Pete Murphy Looking For Collaborations

Skip to the bottom

  • @petemurphy  Feb 10

    Hi all,

    I've done my 14 songs now, so I'm just kinda freewheeling.
    If anyone wants to collab, then just give me a shout (I'm usually more up for putting music to someone else's lyrics than the other way around).

    If interested, I have a bit of info on my profile about how I'm approaching things this time around. I'll copy and paste it here -

    I'm happy to collaborate (usually putting music/melody to other people's lyrics), but again, I will be approaching it differently this year....
    1. As mentioned, I won't be producing full demos, so what I do will mostly be acoustic guitar and vocal, very basic/rough sound quality.
    2. I'm mostly interested in tackling dark themes/subjects at the moment, so would rather put music to lyrics that explore this (the darker the better). Think Mirel Wagner, PJ Harvey's 'White Chalk' album, Timber Timbre, etc...


  • @factorytale Feb 10

    What about both putting Music to eachothers lyrics. I am working on some lyrics. And I would really like to try to put Music to someones lyrics as well

  • @metalfoot  Feb 10

    What a lovely offer. My own tone colour this year is deliberately lighter so I don't know if I would have anything to offer for collaboration -- but there is a lot of month left!

  • @factorytale Feb 10

    Oh listening to your songs. Nice singing and melodies. But dark to me might be White to you 😊

  • @theresaj Feb 10

    I wrote a dark song if you're interested:

  • @petemurphy  Feb 10

    Hello @factorytale - I find that music comes much more naturally to me than lyrics, and often struggle to come up with lyrics before the music. I'm always happy to put music to other people's existing lyrics though.

    @metalfoot - I'd love to collab with you, even if it is lighter in tone. Although I'm interested in exploring darker themes, I'm always up for having some lighter fun 😀

    @theresaj - Thank you. I've put a note on your page.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 10

    @petemurphy I could offer you the Helga the FAWM Duck lyric, but I don't know if anyone would ever want to sing that. So I'll come up with something else and let's do this!

  • @oddbod  Feb 10

    I dare you 😁

  • @petemurphy  Feb 10

    @metalfoot - I wouldn't know where to begin with the Helga lyric! But yes, let's do something!

    @oddbod - I would, but I don't have any bagpipes!


  • @ajna1960  Feb 10

    Hopefully we can do something again Pete 😀 I'll try and rustle up something suitably dark, and acoustic, and and and 😀
    That's if you have time !

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 10

    I'm having a minimalist FAWM this year but you did such a beautiful job of my lyric last year, I feel like writing something dark just to see what you do... 😀

  • @petemurphy  Feb 10

    @ajna1960 - Of course, I'd love to, Amanda 😀

    @fearlessflight2014 - Yes, yes, yes! If you do some up with anything, I'll be here 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 10

    Pete! If you still have bandwidth I would LOVE to have a collab with you!!!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 10

    @kahlo2013 - yes definitely, Elizabeth. Let's do it!

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 11

    Out of my comfort zone in that to me this seems almost Country Folk -

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 11

    I wrote this one with you in mind...
    Do with it as you will...or not...
    change what you need to change...
    If it's not your thing, that's cool Pete...
    no hard feelings...

  • @petemurphy  Feb 11

    @marvsmooth and @cynthiawolff - I'll get to work on them both when I get a moment, and I'll see if I can come up with something. I'm going to my mom's today, but I'll see if I can find some time later on. Thank you both!

  • @bithprod Feb 11

    @petemurphy, if you want it dark and depressing, I can provide. I usually try not to post my darkest material on fawm, but for you I can make an exception. 😉 Let me know.

  • @petemurphy  Feb 11

    @bithprod - yeah, I'm totally up for doing something 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 11

    Whoops Pete ignore my previous post unless you want a poppy love song - I meant to post that in the superskirmish thread - just woke up and still a little droopy! I was planning on writing something different for you...

  • @tiller2  Feb 11

    Hi Pete, after I read some of your lyrics I tried to find a darker vein to write about and came up with Smoldering Coals. If it grabs you and you'd like to put it to music, I'd be honored...

  • @petemurphy  Feb 11

    Thanks everyone - I've just got home, and have some things to do. I'll try to look at all of these a bit later. It might take me a few days to get through them all, as I've had quite a few requests, but I'll get to work soon. Cheers to you all!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 12

    I've worked on some of the collabs, and hope to have recordings for some of you in the next day or two 😀

  • @petemurphy  Feb 12

    I meant to mention this before.
    I always say this to anyone I collaborate with...

    Feel free to post our collaboration anywhere you want, but if you post it on Facebook please don't tag me. It's nothing against the song. I don't very often share my music with family and friends, especially not the rough demos that are put together quickly during FAWM. I hope you understand. Thank you.

    @metalfoot @theresaj @ajna1960 @fearlessflight2014 @kahlo2013 @marvsmooth @cynthiawolff @bithprod @tiller2

  • @tiller2  Feb 12

    Got it, and have the same policy 👍

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 12

    If your still up for collab I have these lyrics that I would love to see in a song

  • @russiasaturn  Feb 12

    Looks like you got lots of responses, but in case you have time at any point...I have a set of lyrics that I'd love for you to check out if you're inspired by them. Got a bit of murder possibly. haha. let me know! I've got a million collabs set up still but I'd be down to do something even in the last couple days of the month!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 12

    Yes of course Pete no I hear that! I don't post any of my Fawm work as no one looks at them or comments and then I go to my defeated, I'm no good place...
    Beside I'm so fed up with the political, bad news in FB... Brings me down!!!
    Staying in Fawnland forever

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 13

    Hi, @petemurphy. I would love to work with you again. I'm not sure I've written the right song for you just yet - it's all a little more surreal than dark, thus far. But I would be very much open to further collaboration.

  • @petemurphy  Feb 13

    @stephenwordsmith - if you come up with something that you feel is right then just give me a shout. I'd be more than happy to work with you again 😀

  • @oneslowtyper Feb 13

    Hello to my good friend Pete! Nice to see you active with your music. I've been involved in little to no collabs for quite some time, but your request got me started on something. Hope all is well.

  • @ajna1960  Feb 13

    Heya @petemurphy I think I may have one you might like.... it's a tad dark 😉
    Let me know if you are interested and Ill add you as a collab thingy 😀

  • @petemurphy  Feb 13

    Hello John! @oneslowtyper - great to hear from you! I hope you're doing well, my friend. Yes, if you feel inspired, let's do something.

    Amanda @ajna1960 - I've just replied to your Facebook message 😉

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 15

    Hi Pete, here is my suggestion if you think it might be of interest to you:
    Thank you,

  • @brrrse  Feb 15

    Pete, you are such a talented musician. Your years of practice and hard work are certainly showing.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 17

    Pete, if you're still up for something, I wrote this:

    Let me know if you think it'll work for you.

  • @petemurphy  Feb 26

    I'm still happy to try to squeeze in another couple of collabs before FAWM ends, if anyone's interested.

    It doesn't matter if we've already done a collab. I'm happy to do more with the same people.

    You can contact me in this thread, on my soundboard, or by sending me Facebook message (although I missed Alex's comment on this thread, and only saw that he'd written lyrics for our collab when he posted on my soundboard... so soundboard or Facebook might be the best way).

  • @petemurphy  Feb 26

    Hi @alamous - I always find it hard putting lyrics to existing music. I tend to do better with putting music to someone else's lyrics.
    I will have a listen a bit later, but not sure if it's something I'll be able to do.

  • @alamous Feb 26

    cool 😀 Don't worry about it!
