Influences: John Denver, Indigo Girls, Maggie Rogers, Sarah Bareilles, Tracy Chapman, Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson, Heart, Suzanne Vega, They Might Be Giants, whatever's currently on the radio, musicals
I'm back at it again for 2021! Since last year I've released two EPs and a wizard rock album which you can find wherever you get your music. 😁 I also write and do instrumentation for the songs on the Audio Verse Awards-nominated podcast Hit the Bricks.
I'm a songwriter (obviously) and multi-instrumentalist from northeast Ohio. My main songwriting instrument is the ukulele (I have a concert, baritone, baritone, electric, and banjo-) but you might hear an accordion, guitar, piano, trumpet, or dinky novelty instrument in there from time to time. I'm married to @violetwhim who doesn't participate much on the FAWM website but may show up as a collaborator <3

Thanks for the insightful comment on my tarot song. I was not aware of that meaning for the lovers card. Adds a very profound perspective for me.
Thanks for the comment on my lyricloud skirmish song!
Thanks for your encouragement on Zoe Princess Mermaid. She did like it. Her parents too. I have to get through both of those filters if the song is to survive and take root. Not all do. I like your Needle and Thread and Get Right. You're good with words.
Hi just checked - the lyric cloud time probably needs correcting.. It was up at 5pm GMT and now it reads 3pm.. but I've just checked with international clock converter and it says noon =5pm..
Hey if you want to collaborate, let me know. Kmariemusic48@gmail.com
Thanks for running the word cloud skirmish and commenting on my lyric! Half the fun is seeing if I can squeeze them all in there! Always so cool to see the range of songs coming from the same prompt.
Thanks for your comment!
"can't tell whether this is confident and content or frustrated and despairing" - that's what I was hoping for. One is what we show, the other is what we feel.
Thanks so much for your comments on Francis. That is an ultrasound sample. I hesitated to use it bc it felt a little too on the nose but it was in the perfect tempo to my vocals already-serendipity. The gold string as I thought of it and in Devon's music sounds similar to the silver string concept. I also totally believe we reconnect with our loved ones and that give me so much hope! <3
Thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Forever' 😀
Glad you like my "The Stangers". A cittern is like a Bouzouki but with a pair of lower bass strings.
Hey there! Thank you for listening to my song!❤️ I love Bly Manor! They have to make a series just about Dani and Jaimie! ❤️ It’s just so wholesome and they’re so cute together. I’m so glad you enjoyed the song!
Hi! How nice of you to ask, and host! I’m in the eastern time zone too. I work days during the week. How does Thursday 8pm strike you? That might be dinner time, I realize, and I could do earlier or later. I also can do Friday evening, or anytime on Saturday. Whatever strikes your fancy within those slots will be great for me. Thanks!
Thanks so much for the lovely comment on “These Wide Open Spaces”! It was a great prompt. It’s wonderful of you to take the time to hand out those cards.
We'll see how it goes...I have felt zero musical inspiration for years now, and things went a bit sideways in my life (some good, some bad). I just didn't feel like I had anything to offer. But, we shall see what happens! Fingers crossed!
Greetings! I disappeared for 4 years, but am back, and THRILLED to see that you are, too. Your first two songs are true delights, and I'm looking forward to more! More to follow...so good to be here with you!
Thank you for the listen and the comment on my Tarot tune. 😀
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on “Suzanne” ❤️
I think the rule is, the more specific it is, the more universal it is.
Hey there. Thanks for the comment. Song is actually about cramps. 😝
Haha, "Henrietta" is not based on a real person, it was the first name that popped into my head when I was trying to come up with who the song was about. 😁
You mean, I can surreptitiously change houses? But, my granddaughter has already called me out. Still, she's a Slytherin and revels in it, so...
Thank you so much for the kind words. 😀
They put me in Ravenclaw. I tried to hide it but...you can tell, can't you!
No worries it was a pleasure to listen to! And Fiona is one of my faves so high praise indeed from me ha
Im a queer hufflepuff myself so i had to check your music on spotify!! I enjoyed it so so so much haha really funny but also really good. I will be listening to this a lot. We need more (gay) harry potter songs. You're amazing
Truly hope you write a song about Time Travel/Customer Service. But you're awesome even if you don't. Have a wonderful Fawm!
Great to see the wrockers still out there! I joined the scene late, but have played with The Blibbering Humdingers for the last many years... looking forward to what you write this year!
welcome again! Thanks for your note on my soundboard, and have a great FAWM!
Hope you have a great FAWM 😀 I can see we were digging a lot of the same music last year. I nearly put Taylor swift 3-10 as well haha but decided to stick to 1 song per artist, wanted to give someone else a look in lol I’ll be sure to come back and check out your FaWM tracks!
I’m happy you’re FAWMing! Perhaps a LyriCloud skirmish? Have fun!!
Have a great FAWM!
I didn't know you were part of the Wrock community! That's just a hop-step away from filk. 😁 I'm here for it. Have an awesome FAWM!
Welcome back! Any mushrooms?
Yay, I'm so glad you're back for another FAWM! 😁
Hope you are FAWMing, I need to hear some of your songs!!!
