Influences: Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits
I live in Sweden and I play guitar, keyboard, ukulele, and learning bass guitar. I am mainly in the folklore genre and I do voice acting (If you need voice acting I'd love to do it specially if they are weird or (yeah again) dark environment or characters!). I work under acousticmaddie (so if we collab please use Acousticmaddie) ,
2017 was my first FAWM and although when I entered I thought I would be able to make 2-3 songs in total it(thanks to the lovely encouraging environment) ended up with 44. Of which I also used a few for further productions. This year I will be traveling 2 out of 4 weeks whereas I will not have so much time as usual since one of these weeks are hiking with one of my dogs in the mountains (With no internet😊 yes that is actually a fact )
Therefore my goal is to do 5-6 own songs (To finish up what I started during 50/90 with the story of Headless soldier bay and Amelia (I’ve released the single for one of them here >> https://open.spotify.com/track/7iefZo... ) to make it an album.
And also hopefully do some collabs here since that’s what I do like most with fawm.
If you want to collab remember during FAWM I only do Acoustics this year . But we can (if we agree ) turn it to a full productionw hen I am back from travels.
With that said I do love to collab, but PLEASE READ THIS FIRST:
1: prefer to be asked before someone grab my lyrics or music.
2: I Also ask you kindly to RESPECT THE ART- which means that I do NOT want my lyrics rewritten unless we agreed on that before the collab starts. (We might think different things are good but we are working with art and that’s very personal)
3: Want us to keep our separate rights, and understanding that I might use my lyrics/music further on in productions of my own.
TW: I focus on weird, dark stories so If you had a weird dream or just a dark tale. Please don't hesitate to scribble it down for me to put music to. The weirder the better but have in mind I can be pretty blunt in my telling with sound effects and words. These are dreams you guys gave to me during FAWM 2018. ->
What I do not do :
I do not do love stories and happy-feel-good-music. I just don’t like to do that becourse there are so many others that loves it and gives their heart into it. Again the weirder challenge you give me the better.
Feel free to msg me here or at FB, mail etcetera. I look forward to hear your music.

Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my lyrics and collabs this FAWM! 😀
Thanks for listening and commenting on my collabs "Since We First Touched" and "Reach For The Stars", I appreciate it!
Thanks for your kind words on "Hand-Knitted Socks"!
Many thanks Maddie for your listening and commenting! Glad to see/hear you back this year. Congrats on finishing again.
Thanks for our collaborations! Means a lot to me!
Hey Maddie, ❤️❤️
Thank you for all the support! And yeah I didn't expect to put out some pop tracks 😁
Thank you too for your support and all those kind comments on my songs. See you in 50/90.
thank you for all your comments and collaborations. you are part of what keeps me going.
You are a superstar. thanks again for the collab
Sounds perfect to me. Enjoy, I'm excited to see what you come up with.
I'm just typing up the lyrics now, I will email them to you and you can tweak them to what you need for the music. Let me know if you want me to make some drums for the mix after you are done, or not. Do you want to sing, too? Or should I send you some vocal stems? or both? Let me know. Thanks 😁
work a double tomorrow. will get to those lyrics on saturday!
I am better at lyrics, so I will write something dark and macabre if I can, and you can fiddle with the words if you like, sound ok?
Let's touch base on Monday and speed write something. I think my weekend is going to be pretty busy too!
I’d love to do one with you. I’ll have the lyrics to “midnight is calling” to you in a couple of days.
by necessity, i'll need to do lyrics, as my computer is down. and it is fine that you must wait-- i'll get to the lyrics tonight to give you time with them. are there any titles that you would like to use? i have had good results by working to a suggested title, if that interests you....
Heyyy, I'm excited to work with you for the random collab challenge! Do you want to make something new together? Any ideas in mind? I'm up for getting creative. If you want to add something to the mix for "Sacred Veils", that's possible, too. Let me know! Thanks!
Tack igen för allt fortsatt stöd!
Thanks for listening and the kind comments on my blues song ' Just another day in Paradise '- I appreciate it . Thankyou !
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Reflections. Much appreciated! 😀
Your lyrics are always amazing, and powerful. The honor was all mine.
Thanks! FAWM can be such a wild emotional roller coaster as songwriting brings words and thoughts to the surface that hide conveniently in the shadows at other times. Loving your music as always! And glad you are finding time to FAWM given your work, family, and now furry four footed friends! Never dull is it?
Thanks for the nice comments!
Hi, thanks for listening!
Thanks for your lovely comments on ‘a beautiful stranger’ I need to catch up with my listening so can’t wait to hear what you’ve produced since my last listen 😀
Thank you for all the continued support! Undertow was more experimentation than "songwriting" in the regular sense. I was awake after coming home super late and just had to focus my mind somewhere.
Thanks maddie for listening and kind words on my song ! I appreciate it !
Hi thanks for your lovely comment on my James Bond inspired song!! Who know what will happen with it 😉
Thanks for checking out Black Curtains Drawn and for taking the time to leave a comment. Much appreciated. 😀
Thanks —- and yeah those winds could be anything 😊
I'm in touch with my feminine side... 😉
Hej Maddie, thanks for stopping by Rock’n’Roll Song! There’s at least one more of those brewing. Big choruses and loud guitars used to be my thing. Guess they still come pretty easy.
Thank you for your generous words on my song Earthrise. I'm so glad you liked it. It was the first piece I've done with that many instruments (7) and it was a lot of notes to juggle and get to jive nicely into chords. I've written 4-voice choral before with piano accompaniment, but that's only 5. Anyway, it took time and patience, but I'm happy with the result. It's short, but then I think scenes of awe probably don't last too long, thankfully. 😀
Hi, thanks for your kind comments on my songs, Still work to do!!
Hej Maddie, glad you like Friday Night. You're gonna like my new song too, I think. https://fawm.org/songs/94518/
Yeah, Lullaby is kinda in the sugary tradition of Vday songs. I tried to make it sweeter than a toothache.
Thanks for commenting on Never Been! This song was based on something that was born years ago. I finally could use the riff and the title. Sometimes you gotta step away from something to see what it is. That's this song.
Thanks for your comment on Guitar Angst. I am glad you enjoyed the reverb!
See You In The Shadows…
Thank you for the comment and opinion!
Thank you for the kind words on "The Soil Of Your Heart"! Once I got started on that one it came together easier than I expected.
Thanks for taking the time to comment on "It Hurts". I appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks, Maddie, for your comment on “Black Ice.” I’m glad you saw it, because it has sex, fear, and death—just like one of your songs! ❤️ Happy anti-Valentines!
Thank you for your great comments!
My apologies if I came across as too abrupt in my prior message. I shall refrain from saying things like those in the future.
Saying that, I also acknowledge that not every FAWMer comments on my songs when I comment on theirs (they may either simply leave a "thank-you" message on my soundboard, or leave nothing at all).
Let's leave the brief disagreement behind, and concentrate on creating music (that's what FAWM is!)
Thanks for leaving a comment on my soundboard. Now would you like to comment on some of my songs?
(I find that when other FAWMers comment on my songs, I reciprocate by leaving a comment on at least one of theirs)
Hey I’m really glad you liked the message in “beautiful generation” - I completely agree with your sentiments 😀
Yes, music would be my choice. I will read through your lyrics Maddie, and see.what strikes me. Thanks!
I can collab if your partner is gone. ( I wanted to anyway).
And thanks for your complement for Karlos’s awesome music to my lyric in When You’re Sleeping
Haha! The song isn't really about one person, but someone who I used to consider to be a friend DID steal one of my distortion pedals a few years back. I cut him out of my life after that.
Thank you so much for coming by Maddie. I hope all is well and I'll be back on the scene to check you and the rest of my FAWM family out! *CTS tosses up the peace sign*
Ha ha. Found a reverse button on my phone so revered me saying “watching over you “ at start and finish . Thanks again lovely 😊
Thanks for the comment on "Satan Knows No Safeword"! Yeah, I first came up with the title and then a story to it. I was quite pleased with it myself 😀
Tack för kommentaren på Fuck The Pain Away! Ofcourse it's not NSFW compared to some of your artsy stuff, but yeah for a pop song I felt it created some nice contrast to the pretty-polished 😁
Thanks for your kind comment, Maddie, on "Maybe, Maybe"! Yes, the music for it is upbeat and in a major key which further adds to the ambiguity. I just put the demo up.
Hello Maddie, thanks for all your comments on my songs, I'll have a listen to a few more of yours while I'm here.
Thanks for all your nice comments!
Thanks for all your recent comments, Maddie. I'm glad you're finding time for FAWM!
Thank you so much for the kind comments!! I really appreciate you listening. 😀
Glad you liked "Everything." Thanks for saying so 😀
Thank you so much! Will be back to listen 😀
Thanks for your comment on Into Creditor Five Redux 😀
Thanks for your lovely comments again on 'the winds are changing' - i need to catch up with my listening and hear the other great music you have produced 😀
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Tempting Time", I really appreciate it!!
I just want to say that I have become a big fan of your music. You have inspired me greatly. You are a born poet. That's a gift and a curse, because you experience the world through the spirit, and that can wound and cut the body and the mind.
Hiya Maddie, thanks for the comments. I will get to your songs, but at the moment I'm having to do most of my listening while on the move, and YouTube won't let me listen to stuff while my phone is in my back pocket. I will find some quiet time soon, and I'll get to listening/watching. Hope all is cool with you and the family (I'm including the doggies in that) <3
Don’t worry Maddie, it’s proving quite a challenge when I whizzing about Asia . I did have an amusing incident recording vocals into my phone on a balcony I thought was empty then finished my not so perfect high pitched harmonies to find a couple clearly trying to be romantic 20 ft away and giving me rather harsh stares 🤣🤣
Hey lovely , I thought something was amiss as you not been popping up on my feed and I thought I am missing your tunes . Anyway painful on the phone after 16 hour travel but so happy I found you and wow 8. I got some ear catching up to do x
Thanks for the comments on my songs!
Thanks for all your support!
Aaawww, Maddie thank you so much for those kind word on The Breeze. Kinda dunno what to say...
Hiya...I won’t be able to commit to doing a valentines collab with you this year..
I am currently having more recording technical difficulties than I know what to do with and probably won’t be recording at all...
I am listening and commenting and doing the 4 track challenge but can’t seem to record at alll so far..
Thanks for thinking of me...
Thanks for your comment on "L’chaim!" Great to see you around again - though I've kept up with you over Twitter or Insta over the off-season. I can't believe how busy you stay. Amazing.
Thanks again, and I'll see/hear you around!
Oh my gosh, it's really funny you say that about the St. Margaret song because I was kinda wanting to make it a ghost story or fantasy story at first! Haha 😀
Ditto on the kind comments maddie. And if you make anything crazy you know where to find my soundboard haha
I am prude, but a curious prude haha. I loved it!
Wow, thanks for the listen to my window dirge Maddie! 😀
Thanks for all your wonderful comments! You are so sweet.
Maddie! For a dark songwriter you are so very sweet! Thanks for all of your comments!
Thank you for taking the time to read my lyrics and your kind words, its a great motivator 😀
Thanks Maddie , for listening to my song 'She was a true diamond ' . Im glad that the you saw the humour in it ! Its awesome to reconnect with you again on Fawm for another year ! I wish you well . Cheers
You're welcome. I'm looking forward to all the stuff you come up with this month (hoping for something on an ukelele again 😁 )
Hi, looking forward to hearing your songs.
Thanks Maddie, glad you like my first entry New Year's Day. I don't have to tell you that emotion is key in any performance, a lot of people could learn from your commitment and drive. Happy travels and hopefully some more great songs from you.
Thanks for your comment. Good to see you back here. Happy FAWMING.
Thanks, Maddie. I am trying! I have a couple ideas for a little darkness, but, haven't gotten it much further yet.
Glad to see you back this year, love your voice and the great work you produced last year. Your a great, dark storyteller!
Yes...def wanna do our annual anti-valentine song..
Some of my funniest memories are with you..
Such great songs
Tjena Maddie, are you joining this year?
Hello! Are you doing this this year? I'm doing this this year! Let's feud again! Um, I mean, let's support each other in our musical endeavors again! 😉
Good to see you, Maddie. 😀
That hike in the mountains with one of your dogs sounds like a wonderful idea! No doubt you'll come back inspired and full of songs. 😉
Welcome back, and have a great fawm!
