Influences: Folk is my favorite genre followed by celtic and good old rock & roll.
I'm the one on the right. My daughter and fellow FAWMer Dawn is to the left. I love it here. I've loved learning new instruments and meeting new people...and of course letting my muse have fun creating. My main 'instrument' is my voice, but I also play guitar, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, autoharp, steel drum, piano, flute, and a very robust cowbell.
A note on comments: I do not intend to make my living with my music, but do want to get better, so gentle constructive comments are very welcome. If there is a certain song I'm thinking I may want to do in public I will ask for serious critique on that song and hope you'll let me have it 😀
I'll probably roll the story cubes a few times, and whack a cowbell. Maybe play with a quote or a bit of scripture. I may do more lyric-only this year. My number one "job" is caregiver for my hubby who is reaching the middle stage of Alzheimer's. Recording takes more time than I may have. We'll see!
Nicknames because of FAWM: Princess of the Cowbell or just Princess, and Mistress Darci - from one rather suggestive collaboration in 2014.
Happy FAWMing everyone!

Thanks so much for coming by and listening to Rise. I'm glad you enjoyed the intensity and emotion of the piece. Much appreciated♡
Thanks for the comment on Like, much appreciated.
Hope life's treating you well.
Thanks for your kind words on Treasure. We are just a bit younger than your parents. We are 82.
Thank you for your comment on "Gas Attack"!
BTW - Is your husband also a musician? Google "Fifth Dementia" regarding music therapy. It has given me some hope for the future as a daughter and grandaughter of alzheimer's patients.
Thanks for the comment on my ;First Class' lyric - yes, the 'NSFW' was the surprise at the end!
That’s so funny. I own a flea. I should have known 😆😆 I also own a tenor fluke stringed with baritone tuning. It is my main ukulele. Good stuff 🤷🏽♂️
Thank you for your kind words on, "I Will Eat Anything". I really appreciate them!
Nah, it was all me. Still can't convince MrsFoot to sing with me on FAWM!
Thanks for the comment on She shed, and that's exactly the inspiration for that, the commercial...I love that commercial
Hi Princess. I've remixed the Castle Party a little to help bring the dialogue a little more to the centre and aid clarity. 😀
Glad you enjoyed it, and weren't too scandalised! 😉
I'll try to script it out for you, but headphones might help (if you get chance). 😊
Got them both, Princess! 😀
Thank you for your lovely comments - I’m really glad you enjoyed it 😀
Thanks for your kind comments about my uke song. I think it's hilarious that we're called FUCers!
Thank you so much for your kind comment!! I appreciate it very much!
Thanks for the comment. You’re going to love GB! I don’t know why it took me so long to give it a try - and then I had to try Logic Pro, Ableton Luve and Pro Tools. I was hooked on production.
It's been a snowy February so far, but the month is still young! I'm glad someone is able to stay with your husband so you can make your appointment, maybe that can be a snowy day plan? Having your outlet is good too - many more days of FAWM left. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I can't wait to hear your lovely voice again! My thoughts, prayers, and intentions for you, your husband, and your family.
Hi Darci, thanks so much. Glad you liked the outcome generated by your dice roll. 😀
Hi, Darci! Will you be joining us? I hope so!
You're an inspiration, and it's awesome that you FAWM with your daughter. Looking forward to your songs. 😀
Hi Darci. Have a great FAWM!
Hi Darci, Happy February to you and your family.
Do I hear cowbells????
