Artist Bio

Influences:   Folk is my favorite genre followed by celtic and good old rock & roll.

I'm the one on the right. My daughter and fellow FAWMer Dawn is to the left. I love it here. I've loved learning new instruments and meeting new people...and of course letting my muse have fun creating. My main 'instrument' is my voice, but I also play guitar, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, autoharp, steel drum, piano, flute, and a very robust cowbell.

A note on comments: I do not intend to make my living with my music, but do want to get better, so gentle constructive comments are very welcome. If there is a certain song I'm thinking I may want to do in public I will ask for serious critique on that song and hope you'll let me have it πŸ˜€

My Dad's health failed during FAWM last year which took my time away from FAWM. He died March 6. My Mom unexpectedly died July 15 which took my will away from 50/90. My hubby is on hospice in his final stage of Alzheimer's. I need to make friends with my muse again so hope to play in this lovely musical sandbox this February. I need to be surrounded by you too. Beams!

Pronouns: her/she
Nicknames because of FAWM: Princess of the Cowbell or just Princess, and Mistress Darci - from one rather suggestive collaboration in 2014.

Happy FAWMing everyone!

    I'm still trying to catch up on all of the thank you's that I owe people for stopping by my song pages and I am very touched by thoughts that you have shared on my song "Tumbling". I will be developing this song further and will keep your input handy so I can make sure it's the best I can make it. The input that I receive from other songwriters is always taken to heart and I know that often times it helps make my songs stronger. Thank you so much for your time and support and for connecting with me on this one, Darci! <3

    Hello Darci, thank you very much for your kind listening to Unreachable. So sorry for your loss. Words fail me when I try to express it but music and lyrics help to carry on. Dawn sang this song so beautifully. I treasure every collaboration I had with your daughter and you. I've updated the demo link as we now have Zuzanna's video to Unreachable.
    Kind wishes,

    Princess, I can send you the version with Geoffrey if you like? I recorded it as a complete song with a fade out in order to use it for the party. πŸ˜‰

    Oh, Darci, I am so sorry to hear of your grief... yet I thank you for your kind words about my song for my mom. I hope the writing process is providing the relief that its capable of, especially when so sorely needed. All my best, sister.

  • @chariotbaldwin  Feb 1

    Wow Darci, I'm sorry to hear of the difficult challenges you've had recently and I hope your songwriting becomes a healing balm of all the emotional stuff you've gone through. If you can't find the words, let the music take you places instead. Good luck and my the FAWM be with you
