Influences: Folk, Indie, Pop, Gospel. Music of life. I listen to an eclectic mix. Love strong female singer/songwriters. Dar Williams, Reba McIntyre, Abigail Washburn, Indigo Girls, Pink, Beyoncé, Lizzo, Crys Matthews and many of you! Beth DeSombre and Becky Warren's music were introduced to me through FAWM.
(Pronouns: she/her/hers) Soprano and storyteller with mediocre guitar and keyboard skills who loves making up tunes and singing with other folks. I have been married for 24 years and have two transracially adopted teenagers. Avid reader, puzzler and boardgamer.
This is my SIXTH FAWM! What!?! Six years ago, I joined mainly to listen to and support a friend....And now, I have connected to other Boston area songwriters, done a bunch of open mics, and written over 40 songs that I would not be embarrassed to perform in public.
I am open to collaboration. Your work belongs to you, and my lyrics/vocals belong to me. I will respect your work and give you credit for what you have done.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Glad to see you’re back! Four years, ey? That’s crazy, how time flies! Yes 100% up for a collab, always a highlight of my FAWM. Fingers crossed there’s some good material ready to come out of my brain haha. I’ll keep you updated as as I go, but I’m sure we’ll be keeping an eye on each other’s stuff anyway 😀
Hi Colleen, I'm gearing up for my second year of FAWM (very different now that I know what to expect). Looking forward to hearing your latest
Hey Colleen! Just 1 week till FAWM!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, 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.
Hope you're doing this!
Hoping you are well 😀
Looking forward to hearing your killer tunes this year - I assume you’ll be FAWMing?
