I'm Leah, a singer-songwriter from central Ohio. My repertoire primarily consists of (but is not limited to) sad songs and waltzes, but I ain't in it for the money anyway. I first participated in FAWM last year and had an amazing experience, so I'm back (sort of) for round two!

Unfortunately, I've been dealing with some health issues since about this time last year that have negatively affected my ability to sing. I did a few songs during 50/90, but was having an increasingly hard time and had to stop early. I haven't picked up my guitar in months and I'm not sure what my output will be this time around . . . but more than anything I'm looking forward to reconnecting and hearing what y'all have in store.

I said it last year and it bears repeating: I'm not looking for a lot of critique--I'm mainly here because historically, I've been a great song starter and a terrible song finisher, and I just want to see if I can do it.

    Hey... if you are up to it and want to finish it during FAWM, we can count it as a FAWM song. No pressure though! Cheers. ๐Ÿ˜€
