Artist Bio

Influences:   It's a mixed bag, but right now I can't get enough of Brandi Carlile, Ria Mae, King Princess, Kathleen Edwards. Learned to play guitar with country standards; my dad played a lot of Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, John Prine and Kris Kristofferson in the house when I was growing up. All time favorite musicians - a toss up between Joni Mitchell and David Bowie. Went through a massive Motown phase in my youth and that still sticks with me. I swoon over 2-3 part harmonies, so the likes of the Secret Sisters, Good Lovelies, Puppini Sisters and First Aid Kit make me giddy. I have big nostalgia for 80's new wave (as a kid I listened to the Pretty in Pink soundtrack a billion times). My own music tends to me roots style/adult contemporary. I kind of aspire to be the female Nick Drake (but happier). Told you it's a mixed bag!

I write music for the challenge and for pleasure. I rarely share outside of FAWM. This year I'm taking a big leap to share every single thing I write in Feb.

    Thank you for your kind words on "Something Doesn't Add Up"! I had a heard time wrapping my head around that one at first but once I got myself pointed in the right direction I think things came together quite nicely.

    Mark, who goes by silvermediapro on FAWM, already did the music for that lyric. You should give it a listen! I'm sorry about that but thank you so much for asking.

    Hi and a belated welcome to FAWM. Glad you are here sharing songs and cheers for mixed bags of influences!

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 11

    Heh - You aren't the first to namedrop that comparison. What's funny is that I don't listen to them, like, at all.

  • @visiblydistorted Feb 10

    yay, looking forward to listening to your songs too!

    Thank you for listening to "Alles Muss vergehen"! So sweet that you had to shed a tear, it means a lot to me. Happy FAWMing!

    Thanks for the amazing compliment on "Get Yourself Together". Wish I could take credit for the "imported air" but Debbie Harry has used it a few times over the years it's at least one Blondie song from the 70s and she uses it again in "Maria". I've always loved her use of it.

    I'm so happy that our queer siblings are finding their way there so we can kiki and collab and talk about issues and stuff. it's how it says in the bible: "music makes the people come together, yeah". have a great FAWM!

    Hey! From the picture it looks like you a guitar-lefty and so am I! Happy FAWMing!

    Thanks for the comment on Supermoon! I had no idea who Morrisey was but I love his music now 😀

  • @wacha  Feb 3

    Thanks for the kind words on "The Journey" really glad the tone of that one resonates with folks.

  • @ductapeguy Feb 2

    Thanks for the lovely comments Barb. Are you coming down to the MCC today? My webinar got cancelled so I'm going.

    Hey @beesmusic! Love your influences, and if you love gorgeous harmonies do you know I'm With Her? Glorious. Cheers to a productive FAWM!

  • @nuj4x Feb 1

    Hey's unlikely that anyone will see your replies to them. It's best to go to their page, post those messages on their soundboard's so they see them! 😁

  • @beesmusic Feb 1

    @nuj4x Thanks, have a great FAWM!
