Artist Bio


And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden. — Joni Mitchell

Acoustic guitar, vocals, a spot of ukelele, and sometimes I cook up something completely digital! (And there’s a piano somewhere under all the boxes!)

Pronouns: she, her

    Apparently you weren’t on my FAWM watchlist and I didn’t remember to look for your songs during February. I often enjoy what you come up with.

  • @tamsnumber4  Mar 5

    Thanks for listening to my song "Amelia" and my collab songs "Fades to Gray" and "Where I Want You / By My Side", I appreciate it!!

  • @mikeb Mar 1

    Thanks for the comment on 'Fades to Gray'!

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 28

    I will be back. Need to make rounds.
    Recovering from surgery has taken up most of my month

  • @mikeb Feb 28

    Thanks for the comment on my lyricloud skirmish song!

  • @blindkiwi  Feb 28

    Thanks for the kind words on friends in high places Barbara, I have added a rough demo 😀

  • @nadine Feb 27

    Thanks for your words, Barbara! Oh yes, this word convergence was really heart to fit in. I only know the mathematical meaning of it. These lyrics are so upbeat, reperatative and weird. It was fun to write something outside my comfort zone. Let's see if I finish this off.

  • @cleanshoes  Feb 27

    Thank you for seeing so deeply into my song, Barbara. Your comments are always a gift. I truly appreciate it!

  • @hummingbear  Feb 27

    I'm wistful because I'm not getting Wistful Saxon to play. The song page takes a long time to load. When loaded, neither the player nor the download button works. Maybe it's still processing itself??

  • @cleanshoes  Feb 25

    Them's my old stomping grounds! I grew up in Geauga County (Chesterland), so I'm very familiar with the Chardon/Mentor/Painesville/Kirtland area. Yes, the parks system is wonderful there! I miss it a lot now that I live in the flat farmland of central Ohio.

  • @adnama17  Feb 24

    Lyricloud skirmishes FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @auditasum  Feb 21

    Thursday at 8 pm sounds good. And maybe I'll host another one on Saturday afternoon. Yay!

  • @auditasum  Feb 21

    Since you've expressed interest in a lyric-cloud songskirmish, what would be a good time for you? I know FAWM will be almost over but I'll be free the 24th through the 28th anytime except dinnertime (lol) and I'm in the eastern time zone. Let me know and I'll make a forum post.

  • @tunecat  Feb 20

    An another thanks for your words about my "Love Affair" with music.. I'd never have dared do a video.. probably not even a month or two ago..!

  • @tunecat  Feb 20

    Thanks so much for checking out and saying lovely things about my Orpheus track/idea

  • @yam655  Feb 20

    Thanks for the comment on "A Lyre is not a Harp." Another fun fact: People were using plectrums on lyres long before the invention of the guitar.

  • @scubed  Feb 17

    Thank you so much for your very generous comment on Better Late Than Never”! I really appreciate it.

  • @hmstreetteam  Feb 17

    Thank you for your lovely comment on “One Morning in Fez.” My life has more than its share of surreal moments, so it’s only fair that I put some of them into song form.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 16

    Thanks for your great comments!

  • @feb21sundari Feb 12

    Thanks for your kind comments, makes me feel home here 😀

  • @timfatchen  Feb 10

    You're back! So glad! And thanks for the ade to Beige comment, I wouldn't even have got here until week 4 if I hadn't seen that cos everything has descended on me again... so infuriating! Still, that's Covid_Free Problems, so I should stop the complaints,

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 9

    My entire life is rabbit holes.

  • @kerriwinter  Feb 8

    Thank you for listening to my piece! I did catch Live from Here when it happened to be on while I was driving but I'll admit I spend most of my music listening time at my desk plugged into Spotify.

  • @ofishell  Feb 8

    Thanks for the words of encouragement on my first installment. 😀 I'll see what else I can muster. Music and I have been taking an extended break from one another. We'll see what I can squeak out. Sending you hugs from Chamblee (alas, we had to leave Decatur a few years ago).

  • @adnama17  Feb 6

    I've got the perpetual blues!

    Why is your lyric cloud not posted, hmmm?

  • @tunecat  Feb 6

    Hi .. thanks for replying. I took a punt and put a load of things on my biog. on.. I alternate between wanting to let it all hang out, and deleting everything! Look forward to collabing again sometime. But still need to get a fe tracks under my belt as my wierder stuff isn't quite back to where it was ... (need a couple of weeks at the computer)

  • @tunecat  Feb 5

    Hi Barbara. Remembering some great collabs with you in 2018..Looking forward to some more?

  • @wrenarcher  Feb 5

    Hi Barbara! Thanks for commenting on my lyrics-only “Ukulele Identity” song I posted a couple of days ago. I really appreciate it. Well, I was finally able to add a demo today. Yay! If you have time and would like to hear it, stop on by. Take care. Wren

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 5

    Hi Barbara

  • @pcob1993  Feb 1

    Yo Barb, here we go again... such a joy to have you in the gang.
    If I had to describe your enlivening spirit and songs I would choose the word beatific.
    Drop that needle into the groove sister and we'll shimmy to the Kinks....

  • @donna  Jan 31

    Thank you, Barbara. Always a joy to see you here. 😊

  • @klaus Jan 31

    Heh. Another school recorder peeps out!

  • @auditasum  Jan 27

    You're right, I should do one of those. Happy to see you back too!

  • @corinnecurcio  Jan 27

    Hi Barbara - Your songs are always such a pleasure to hear!

    HELLO Magical Songstress and thank you for warming my soul with your greetings, I have missed you and can't wait to dive into your music!!!

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 21

    Thank you for the well-wishes! Yes, life is going quite well despite everything. And hopefully, after today, some of that will be turning around, too.

  • @cleansupafterburn Jan 21

    Tarot challenges are definitely in order. How many can we make up aside from the old tired normal ones? Those are good too but hey....

  • @pcob1993  Jan 18

    Yow Barb, right, just gearing up... my notes look like they were scribbled with a burnt stick.. I just hope they're in English.......
    going back to basics in Feb ... Yeehaaaaa....

  • @timfatchen  Jan 14

    We've finally reduced or removed the clutter from emptying two parent sets homes. It's only taken 8 years. Now we have (unmarried) daughter's clutter. My office since work stopped is simply piled high. The shed is full of file boxes I ahve to sort through, only been doign that for 5 years. So it goes. Pass me my tin whistle.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 14

    ref flight and Muscidae....I must be slowing down in my cerebral processes. Too much happening. Edge blunted.

  • @andygetch  Jan 14

    Thanks Barbara 😀. Profile pic was my cover for my NaSoAlMo attempt. Initially I was was going to do another painting then 2021 happened 😀 Good vibes and really looking forward to more of your beautiful music.

  • @timfatchen  Jan 14

    Boxes? Boxes? Flight? Have you moved? Book in here!

  • @andygetch  Jan 10

    Happy FAWM-ing 😀

  • @fuzzy  Jan 10
