Artist Bio


Now it is almost a year that I am the proud dad of a wonderful young boy... Although personally this being one of the best things that could happen in my life, I am not sure how deep the impact of this fact and of my relentless job will be on my FAWM-participation this year and in the future as well... Probably it will be less intense regarding time and "productivity"... maybe also some kind of different in some ways... however, I am sure it will be a wonderful experience as it has always been so far...
This having been said, I really look very, very forward to being a part of this lovely community here again and to keeping enjoying in all your creativity and positive spirit.
Have a great February!

And as always in the past, too: if anyone likes any set of lyrics and feels inclined to put it to music, I will be very, very, VERY happy about that!

PS: My lyrics are just “rough ideas”… Please, feel free to “work on them” and change them in any way you like to make them fit to your music, if you like… thanks…

  • @timfatchen  6 weeks

    I don't think fatherhood or dire job demand has affected your productivity at all, Arthur! Also, see @berni1954 's comment on our collab, as he puts it better than I can. It's been a pleasure!

  • @serene123  6 weeks

    You are welcome!

  • @serene123  6 weeks

    Hi Arthur.. sorry yes I have done that now! Thanks again

  • @engebretsen  6 weeks

    You are the one to thanks Arthur. We keep in touch. You`re lyrics is here, and I got you`re mail. See what the year bring. So long.

  • @willie70hawkins 6 weeks

    Sorry I haven't replayed Arthur I've been busy with work and family. (16 grandkids now with one on the way). I will try to put something together with your songs soon.

  • @engebretsen  7 weeks

    Nice that you like OUR song! You know I could do better singing, but it was nice to do for now. I`ll see post-fawm if there is more to do. Sure sing it better, because I like the idea.

  • @serene123  7 weeks

    Hi Arthur, the track should now be downloadable from soundcloud, please check and let me know if you can download it.. once you have I guess I should change the settings back... Thanks!

  • @andybalham 7 weeks

    You are more than welcome Arthur. Have a great FAWM.

  • @taylortay 7 weeks

    What a prolific FAWM you’ve had! Thanks for the kind comment on “should it be this hard to breathe?” - I think you’ve found things about the song that I didn’t consciously think of while writing, that make it work quite well. It’s one of my favourites so far this year. Perhaps I’ll have to pick a lyric of yours!

  • @estebanlartigue  7 weeks

    Hi! i can try to give voice/sound to one of your italian songs
    I was looking for an italian lyric and couldnt find,
    and found the esperanto song I just collabed and submitted today

  • @daveyboy103  7 weeks

    Thank you so much Arthur for your kind comments on Ashes of my Mind

  • @serene123  7 weeks

    Hi Arthur.. I'm so glad you liked it!! Like really ecstatic!! I will of course sort out an MP3 for you and email over soon or will see if I can make it downloadable..

  • @cts  7 weeks

    Once again you've won! Congrats, friend. I wanted to ask if you would mind if I tried my hand at the Titivate tune.

  • @serene123  8 weeks

    Posted!! Reposted as thought we might get more listens if more recent maybe?! Let me know what you think.

  • @waitingforwinry 8 weeks

    Hey Arthur, thanks for your kind words on "Half finished" 😀 We're kind of digging it! 😁

  • @tunecat  8 weeks

    Thanks for stopping by (again) and being so wonderfully positive.

  • @gb9  8 weeks

    Thank you for the kind comments & appreciation of 'Don't Put It Off' 😀

  • @doug52  8 weeks

    Arthur, I posted the song, "My Old House" but do not know how to enter your name in the box for a collaborator.

  • @berni1954  8 weeks

    YOU ASKED: ..... have you ever been in Italy and if yes, are the lyrics based on a true story?

    Yes and partly....

    I love Italy and go whenever I get the chance. The last place I visited before the lockdown was Napoli where I hadn't been for 56 years.

    I know most of Italy above Naples, I especially like Marche (unspoilt, "old" Italy). I long to visit the deep south. I have only been to Bari (on a cruise ship). I have friends who have retired to the wife's family area (near Brindisi) -. We had planed to visit in Autumn 2020 - but the Covid epidemic put paid to those plans.

    Where are you from, yourself?

  • @engebretsen  8 weeks

    Hi. Thx for comments on " I am so Perfect". I still working on you`re lyrics. The song is there, but I am not looking forward to sing... So it will come up the day I do this. Soon I hope.

  • @racoolness 8 weeks

    Hi @arthurrossi! I just saw your post on my soundboard and have changed the settings on "Where are you now" so it's downloadable. 😀 Sorry it took a bit...I'm new here and also haven't been on here for a few days. Anyway I had a blast with it! Love your lyrics. <3

  • @jrr1  8 weeks

    @arthurrossi would you mind if I put music to "A lover or a friend"?

  • @paulhenry  8 weeks

    Okay, Arthur, this years collab is in. "Eloise." I hope you like it.

    So glad you liked the music and performance to The Garden! Lovely words...I admire your prolific lyrical creativity and versatility so much! I will e-mail you the mp3 sometime this weekend as I have to RIP it from the video. Not hard but need to do it Sat or Sun.

  • @mardeycranbleson Feb 11

    Thank you for the feedback it’s always a pleasure to work with your lyrics! I changed the settings for the song should be able to download now.

  • @marthie Feb 10

  • @themelgoexperience  Feb 9

    Thanks very much for your comment on my song

  • @themelgoexperience  Feb 9

    Thanks very much for your comment on my song

  • @lowhum Feb 7

    Zdravo, Arthuro! - this is what I came up with - it's a bit too long, maybe because I love Belgrade so much. And the women there, well, you know 😀

  • @vomvorton  Feb 7

    Pleased you liked it! I would normally take a little more time but this one really got my blood flowing! I guess coffee probably helped too 😁

  • @vomvorton  Feb 7

    Finished and posted! Thanks again for your inspiring lyrics 😁

  • @vomvorton  Feb 7

    Already making good progress! Please add me as collaborator when you have a spare minute 😀

  • @carlos Feb 7

    Hi Arthur! , YES! .. you are amazing... some wonderful phrasing , I’m working on some melodies and will give them a try ! Bravo! bravo!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 6

    Excellent, really happy that you like it - I had a lot of fun working with it!

  • @willie70hawkins Feb 6

    I just posted (The Old House). I changed it some and made it a little shorter, I hope you like it.

  • @vomvorton  Feb 6

    Country-song will hopefully be finished today, just waiting for noisy neighbours to stop drilling / hammering so I can sing! Just letting you know in case you'd like to add me as a collaborator in advance, I'll send you the link otherwise when it is finished!

  • @goldarrow  Feb 6

    Hi Arthur, welcome to FAWM!! If ok with you I would like to do the music for 90 Miles South of El Paso. Thanks

  • @petemurphy  Feb 5

    Hello Arthur. Apologies for the late reply. I'm not very organised. Thank you for the note. It looks like you're on fire this year. 19 already! Wow! I'll visit your page soon, and check out what you've been doing. I hope all is ok with you.

  • @carlos Feb 5

    Fantastico.. Grazie! Yes anything with love / beauty /wonder ... I'm going to use Nesun Dorma as my reference, so filling it with lush minor chords, and a high string melody .. 😀

  • @tcelliott  Feb 5

    Thank you for your kind words about the song and also the well wishes. I appreciate it, Arthur.

  • @carlos Feb 4

    Very cool! , I was lucky to live in Italy for 2 years in my early 20s so I still speak it well.. yes anything’s with a verse or two only would be awesome to try ... !! 😀.

  • @colgoo Feb 4

    You are so welcome! The tune came as I was reading your fantastic poetry!

  • @willie70hawkins Feb 4

    Hey Arthur, glad to see you back this year. Congrats on your new son. Thanks for your kind words on (More peace in my soul). I'm working on (The old house), as soon as I get it finished I will post it.

  • @carlos Feb 4

    Arthur, do you speak/write italian? I was thinking of doing one of my orchestral pieces with my vocals, but I'd love it to be in Italian! 😀

  • @colgoo Feb 4

    I hope you don’t mind that I posted the music separately....I was just really eager to put it up on the FAWM site!

  • @doug52  Feb 4

    You are welcome. It is a rough demo that at least gives you something to work with if you get a chance to have others record it. Could you please send me your full name so that I may place it on the song posted on my page. My e-mail is. doug_murphy6@sympatico,ca

  • @timfatchen  Feb 4

    Arthur, I'd like to have "If only I'd died in time" starting each verse, but it means replacing the "closed my eyes" and "blind and deaf" lines. I think it'd n stronger and I don't think it alters the "dared to see" or "forbid myself" context because they cfollwo too. What do you think?

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 4

    Expanding you family? Congratulations - great news! Let's have a good FAWM 😀

  • @colgoo Feb 4

    Awesome! I have the tune and everything! I will record it tomorrow.

  • @doug52  Feb 3

    RE-WRITE [I have the music done and will post it as a collaboration on my page here.

    If You Were Not There

    If you were not there HOW WOULD I exist?
    In a world void OF tears? In a world MADE of mist?
    If you were not there WOULD I care about life,
    NOT taking BUT giving, HOW would I survive?


    If you were not there I BE LEFT ALL ALONE,
    If you were not there AS PART OF THE GAME
    I'D BE losing never winning AND NOT BE THE same.


    If you were not there for whom WOULD I sing?
    HOW COULD my LOVING words mean anything?
    If you were not there THEN LORD HOW COULD I BE?

    If you were not there LIFE WOULD BE pretend.
    If you were not there I might think THAT I´m free.
    FREE OF illusions, LEFT ON MY OWN TO SEE.

    THAT WOULD BE. That would not be me.

    If you were not there for whom WOULD I sing?
    HOW COULD my LOVING words mean anything?
    If you were not there THEN LORD HOW COULD I BE?

  • @klaus Jan 30

    Yo, Arthur, dude. Are you in this year? If you are, I wish you a very merry Fawm. 😀

  • @andrewjtaylor  Jan 26

    Hi Arthur! Just 1 week till FAWM!

    With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.

    "Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.

    But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.

    Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 21

    Arthur, hoping to see you FAWMing this year!

  • @beat  Jan 13

    A.R. wirst du schreiben, nächsten Monat? Nach dem Lockdown müssen wir uns jetzt echt mal auf ein Bier treffen... oder? Enjoy being. Vater werden und sein kann wirklich viel...
