Influences: Usually I'd cite folk singer songwriters (Sandy Denny, Roy Harper, Nick Drake) as my influences, but as I have been listening to a lot of jazz (Ella and old time trad jazz) and motown lately I'd like to try and write something that swings or is a bit funky! Who knows what will happen! I haven't played much or written any songs for a while so I'm really excited about February!
I did FAWM in 2017 and wrote 13 songs, loved it but have not been able to participate again until now. I play several instruments to one degree or another but have not layered them up much before. I have invested in a couple of mic stands and am looking forward to the challenges and skirmishes.
Hey Didi! Thanks so much for telling me that you had my song in your head while doing housework! Best comment ever!! Funnily enough I was thinking about that song earlier and thinking I should revisit it... So this is confirmation!! Thanks for listening to my songs!
Thank you Didi and wow what a small world! I see you are in Rochester. Are you a friend of Lisa's?
Hi Didi, thank you so much for your kind comment on Our Romantic Dance. It was so wonderful to read.
Hope you are well. Enjoy a very beautiful weekend.
Hi Didi, thank you so much for your beautiful singing. I'd love to collaborate with you any time you are happy to. I'm absolutely sure Kristi will be very happy to collaborate with you as well. Thank you for your amazing work.
Have a great Sunday.
Didi, thank you so much for your inspiring comments! I was looking at your page today hoping to find a new song but didn't. I hope you are okay. Thank you so much for your support and kindness.
You are very welcome Didi. I love your songs, your singing and playing. Thank you for all your beautiful comments and amazing singing! It's wonderful to collaborate with you. Thank you so much.
Hi Didi, thank you so much for your kind comments. I was using fl studio and my tiny keyboard (25 small notes) 😀 The sound you were reffering to was from fl studio flute.
Didi, I posted the song at the link below. It's downloadable. I was thinking that you could sing it with me, and add parts (repeating a phrase I sang, etc.). The lyrics are at the link. Let's exchange e-mails so we can do this more easily. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your beautiful comments and for being happy to collaborate. Would you mind sending me pm please? If you click on the envelop icon you can send me a message, it will be much easier to discuss. Thank you so much.
You are very welcome. I loved hearing your song and your beautiful singing and playing. If you are interested maybe we could collaborate? I currently have a co-written song which would be awesome to hear with your vocals. I'm also up for any other ideas if you are happy to collaborate. No pressure of course. Please see what works for you.
Thanks for stopping by! My favorite music in the world is 70s Britfolk, particularly Nick Drake (#1), Richard and Linda Thompson, Sandy, Fairport and lots more. Would you be up for a collaboration? I have the music all recorded ... just needs vocals. If you prefer, I can do a vocal track, and you can sing it with me. Song is a bit twee, but nice. Let me know!
Thank you for sharing your marmite tale - made me laugh out loud for some time!... just cos it looks like nutella, doesn't mean it's nutella!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment. 😀
Thank you for your comment on "All the things you do." I appreciate it! 😀
Thanks for your comment on "Guitar Trouble"! I will look out for your first song ...
Thank you for the lovely comment on Taking the Wrong Road. Now...recorderist? Pick one up and improvise> Anything to get a track up. It's what I do, when all else fails, improvise. Oh, and as pianist +guitar, there's always 12bar blues but then you have to think up words...
I'm pleased to see someone curious about doing "song seeds." Maybe the idea will take root and spread? 😀
I hope you have a satisfying and productive FAWM this year.
Thanks for listening and commenting. Looking forward to hearing your songs!
thank you for your lovely comment. 😀
Hey, I didn't realise you were back this year! Hope you have a great February!
Aww, you're very welcome. Thank you for sharing your story with me. I took a certification class in Pennsylvania on the Oracle and have a ritual I do prior to FAWM. There's a reason each person gets a specific card. The cards never lie. Looking forward to what you do with your chosen card 💖
Thank you for your nice comments! You made a dull, grey day look a lot brighter... And I'm looking forward to listening to your songs!
Thank you so much for your kind words—I really feel inspired by them. I’ll keep the atmospheric scenes coming.
Thanks for the welcome! Can’t wait to get started either.
Welcome to FAWM!!
How about some bio info??
Welcome, and happy FAWMing!
