Robyn Mackenzie 23

Artist Bio

Influences:   All y’all <3

Hi, I’m Robyn (she/her) and this is my 12th year of FAWMing. Holy crap.

Sometimes I write emotional, wistful ballads about love and longing. Sometimes I write ukulele jingles about snot. All depends on the day. I'm married to the wonderful @katmtl who said she wasn't gonna FAWM this year but has stayed up until 4 am the last few nights recording so I think she's in.

Until 2018, I worked with the beautiful artists over at @vsaredfish,and had 5 wonderful FAWMs with them. You can still check out the music we made together at http://

    I notice that our collab "I had a dream". can be found on Amazon when you look up my Poetry book "Open Your Eyes" under my name "Bill Thwing". I didn't put it there!

  • @roblincoln  Mar 11

    Robyn-- Thanks so much for your lovely comments on You Were Just Dreaming In 1846 and Corner Of Her World. They mean a lot coming from you-- as I consider you one of the finest psychedelic musical artists I have heard post 1970's. Your songwriting, musicianship, singing and production are all top notch.

  • @gm7  Mar 9

    Thx for listening to my music this FAWM. I enjoyed your music and your many collab.. and our collab too!. I hope to touch base with you when you have recovered from the Feb. FAWM marathon, I am writing a song with you in may like it?
    Hope to see you back next year. Stay safe fellow FAWMer .
    Say hello to Katrina and the spoiled puppers!!🧑
    I will listening on and off until April 14

  • @skibum1066  Mar 9

    Thanks. I'll be in touch if anything happens. I assume I can contact you at the e-mail address on hour header.

  • @skibum1066  Mar 8

    Robyn, I've shared our collab around in my family and song writing community. A lot of people like it. Some think I should share it at our April Pittsburgh NSAI chapter meeting. I'm considering it,... with your permission. All songs played at that meeting are entered into an Anthem Publishing House competition. It's an International Competition for NSAI members who are unpublished. The winner gets a contract with Anthem. Are you already under contract? If not, are you interested? The competition is pretty intense and I suspect market driven, but In the unikely chance , that "I had a Dream" were to be selected, we might both get a chance to go to Nashville. I won't submit it without your authorization.. It's a collab!

    Did you see my email?

  • @jamesstaubes  Feb 26

    Thanks for the note! All good on a collaboration. I may do one more song before the end of the month. I may not. I'm pretty crispy right now. Yeh let's collab at some point.

    NO know me.
    Stay safe.

  • @oddbod  Feb 24

    great thanks Robyn, I'll check them out and get working on it later today

  • @hmorg  Feb 23

    Thanks for the comment on "Monolithic Halls"! Looking back at the lyrics, having had them on the back burner for several years and then finishing them quickly, I think that particular line could use a little exposition. Or maybe not, maybe it's just that it's been in my head for so long I can't step out of my own vision.

  • @skibum1066  Feb 23

    Yay...Can't wait!

  • @skibum1066  Feb 23

    Yay...Can't wait!

  • @skibum1066  Feb 23

    So...Robin...Have you done anything with that little poem of mine "I had a Dream". I think you said you'd" like to take a stab at it". Any luck? Did your muse kick in? I would be more than happy to work with you if that's something you would like to see happen. Let me know what's happening . if anything. Thanks

  • @kajati Feb 22

    Thanks for your comments, we were really not sure on this one....

  • @cts  Feb 20

    Oh dang! I didn't realize you crossed the finish line already! Congratulations! And thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • @devinhill Feb 20

    Thanks for your interest in my song "Vigilante," I updated the demo URL to use soundcloud instead so hopefully it works, let me know if it still doesn't play for you.

  • @skibum1066  Feb 19

    Like your "f*ck you too" and your "You and Me". I'd consider collab if you see something you like

    Hi Robyn, thank you so much for your warm comment on my piano piece. I'm so happy to read that you heard the title in my melody πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for tunning in so beautifully!

  • @gb9  Feb 18

    Thank you so much for the appreciation and kind comment on 'Ready, Steady, Go' The shifting chorus is a 'mini rebellion' on my part to a repetitive chorus. Thank you πŸ˜‰

  • @tuneslayer  Feb 18

    Thank you for the recommendation! I'm honored.

  • @gb9  Feb 17

    Thank you so much for the appreciation and kind comment on 'Don't Put It Off' πŸ˜€

  • @papaooo Feb 16

    Thanks for your comment on "A Cautionary Tale."

  • @trolls2 Feb 16

    thanks for your kind words on 'Sweet Man" for some reason an image from a 70s film i saw as a child called 'the great waldo pepper' about a stunt airplane flyer came to mind and I kind of went from there. So glad the music/words matched for you. look forward to checking out your tunes.

  • @leka Feb 16

    Thank you for listening and liking.

  • @doglatin  Feb 16

    Thanks for being the first commenter on my first song, late in the game as it is...I got some work to do.

    Robyn, thanks for the nice comment on my song: Yet We Dance.

    Heya! @valeriecox made a song based on one of the fake bands you invented ("Bad Beavers"), I thought you should know! πŸ˜€

  • @safred Feb 10

    Many, many thanks for listening, commenting and recommending Earth-grounded, really much appreciated πŸ˜€ My first time on FAWM, and its great to discover such great creative potential

  • @lisamarie777 Feb 9

    Thanks for the kind words. xo

  • @cheezeboy  Feb 9

    Thanks for the comments on Token!

  • @cts  Feb 8

    I believe we're good now. πŸ˜€

  • @cts  Feb 8

    Check the 50/90 shared folder and look in the new folder that says jelly factory promo spots.

  • @cts  Feb 8

    I used the musicstudio email. Is that right?

  • @cts  Feb 8

    What the?!? Alright - gimme a sec. We'll get this sorted out...

  • @farmyardorchestra Feb 8

    You should never play around with farming equipment! I advise you to stop listening if you don't know of any rehab clinics specialized in breaking that sort of addiction. A neighbor's great uncle went mad listening to his tresher. It was an old steam driven model, but I digress... Thank you for your comment!

  • @cts  Feb 8

    Thanks for coming by! And it's because my fail behind didn't send it to you (although I could've sworn I did).

  • @rwhosings  Feb 8

    Thank you for your comment. I didn't realize that was the story until you pointed it out, but it's true.

  • @cts  Feb 8

    Thanks for the listen! Did you see the goods our shared folder?

  • @oddbod  Feb 7

    Excellent. I'll do a dropbox folder and add you with your email.
    Might not be until tomorrow

  • @oddbod  Feb 7

    Hi Robyn, would you possibly up for singing and writing some lyrics on something I just started on? No problem if you're too busy with other stuff. Cheers

  • @kirjis Feb 7

    Thanks for your comment!

  • @flw3rch1ld  Feb 7

    Aw thanks! πŸ€—

  • @flw3rch1ld  Feb 7

    I love your voice and songs so much!

  • @scubed  Feb 6

    Thanks for thr lovely comment on β€œIt's a New Day”!

  • @gslade Feb 5

    Hey! Thanks for the feedback. Question - Will you be interested in being a guest on my indie show?

  • @opossum Feb 5

    Hey there Miss Robyn! Thank you for listenin' to my song. I will return the favor but for now I have to go climb a tree, cross a couple of roads and eat some ticks. You know, opossum stuff!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 5

    πŸ˜‚ I'm going to TRY and restrain myself from writing something about the steamy nastiness that occurs down under while wearing crocodile undies while down under in the bushlands....... but no promises

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 5

    😁 Where do I get a pair of those Crocodile Undies? They sound really comfortable!

  • @katmtl Feb 5

    ROBYN! You rock! I love the vocals you added! Omgawrsh! ❀️❀️❀️

  • @arthurrossi Feb 4

    I would like to thank you so much for your wonderful and thoughtful words... I appreciate them a lot!

  • @crutherford  Feb 4

    Thanks for listening and commenting Robyn! Yeah, I dunno... goat yoga is something I might still one day do even with the threat of worm eyes. -What on earth does that say about me?

  • @flw3rch1ld  Feb 3

    Thanks for your recording info! I’m terrible at replying lol but thank you!

  • @cts  Feb 3

    I know, right? Sent an email to ya.

  • @cts  Feb 3

    Um...for some reason it looks like your messages to me have done a Bermuda Triangle and disappeared off my soundboard. Weird.

  • @gwyn1234  Feb 2

    Thank you for your kind words on my co-write with the wonderful Cindy Prince...much appreciated Robyn!

  • @psyt Feb 2

    I know, that's why I asked. 😁

  • @cblack Feb 2

    Thank you!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2

    TWELVE YEARS!! Woot!!
    2009? I'm 2008. But we've been around together these here parts for awhile, haven't we?

    So good to be here again (especially after this god-awful year).

  • @faceofeinstein  Feb 2

    Thanks so much for the kind words and recommendation!
    I appreciate it! Cheers.

  • @wacha  Feb 2

    Thank you so much for the kind words on "Can't Escape", I have found that generally have less lyrics in my songs than I used and just try to make the really matter. That really came about doing FAWM. The "whoas" came about when I went to do the vocals, I felt like it needed something there to transition from the chorus back to the verse.

  • @phenola Feb 2

    (sorry,meant to post this on the track rather than the soundboard)

  • @lishie5000 Feb 1

    Fantastic! Very catchy and clever. Needs to be on my Halloween playlist.

  • @sumnersloane  Feb 1

    Thanks for the welcome. Great win in the Songfight!

  • @haim  Jan 31

    Hi Robyn! Looking forward to hearing your music this year!

  • @mikegtz  Jan 30

    Hi Robyn and welcome back. I will be checking in often.

  • @gm7  Jan 29

    Your Pre FAWM "" 9/11 song Every Day"...on my daily playlist. Great job and a nice backup usually!!

  • @seemanski  Jan 27

    Hi, hope you are well. Gosh, it seems ages since you started up that facebook group, I'd forgotten about that. This has just reminded me. I see you have joined in with the songfights and even won one (congrats there, still waiting for my first win, if I ever get it). I love doing songfights but I don't think we have managed to cross paths on it yet.

    Let me know if you fancy a collab, I really enjoyed what we did for that NurEin entry and would love to do something that is a bit more two and fro rather than, can you sing some words for me please?

  • @tjeff  Jan 27

    Have a great FAWM! Looking forward to listening!

  • @hummingbear  Jan 27

    I still remember your Girl Scout cookie song. Have a great FAWM!

  • @mosley  Jan 26
