Artist Bio

Sorry to be so slow at listening and commenting, I will try to catch up!

Update 23 Feb: a laptop that's been a minor part of my FAWM workflow has decided to retire itself. Hugs and kisses to @rickatfulcrum for carrying some of my lo-fi things to completion where I'm not collaborating with another mixmaster! So, no excuses: I WILL be doing 14.5 songs in 29 days this year!

This is my fourth Leap FAWM.

Last Feb., I flew from NY, my home of the past 20 years, to CA to interview for a fancy new job. The new gig is busy and the new digs are small. Expect hushed vocals and hasty work.

Benediction: May our songs have many mothers and fathers!

    Thank you for the inspirational prompt for β€˜Im in a Frog’

  • @pvk2020  Feb 29

    Wanted to thank you again and reply to your comment on "just keep drivin". Keep drivin toward the sunset is a metaphor....leaving all the stuff behind me.....letting go and yes I want to be warm. πŸ˜€

  • @jeustan  Feb 26

    Thanks, I also want to come back and check out where you’ve gone with it this month. β€˜Change in the Weather’ has left quite an impression on me.

  • @rickatfulcrum Feb 20

    Song 7: working on it. Started something remotely interesting last night, want to get it a little less remote.

  • @johncrossman  Feb 18

    Just checking in to say, I haven't forgotten! Getting to the point where I'm looking outside instead of just inward so I'll revisit your notes. Fawm on! πŸ˜€

  • @pvk2020  Feb 14

    Hey Elaine, I have another one for you. πŸ˜€ Guitar chord progression and a couple lines of lyrics. I will record it this weekend and you can add your MAGIC to it, or what we would say, "your bent".

  • @toms Feb 14

    😁 😁 😁 😁 😁

  • @matthew62  Feb 13

    Thank you very much for taking the time to listen to all of my songs and leave such kind comments. Truly appreciated.

  • @toms Feb 12

    The syllables were too fast for me truthfully. Don't know how rappers do it. πŸ˜€

  • @davewermers Feb 12

    Thanks for listening to My Sweet Baby and commenting.

  • @songsville Feb 11

    Thanks for the great comments. I enjoy making up spoof botanical terms so much I can't actually tell what's real anymore ... and yes I totally knicked that self-auto-dezonging trick from you ...

  • @raygungirls Feb 10

    Glad you liked what I did for your lyrics! In March I'm gonna do some tweaking, and, if it's okay with you, I'd love to release it under the Raygun Girls name?

  • @pvk2020  Feb 10

    Thanks for your comments.

  • @raygungirls Feb 10

    Hope you like what I created!

  • @toms Feb 7

    Check yer email. 😁

  • @zecoop  Feb 7

    My son worked there for three summers and convinced four of his cousins to work there... and they are starting their sixth year this spring. All have been supervisors and three are now hoping to develop a career in that field. My younger brother @guatecoop lives 20 minutes from there and my parents live 40 minutes away. I'm four hours, but it's always nice to visit family (and maybe hit the park) πŸ˜€

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 7

    Thank you for your really thoughtful comment on β€˜Alone’.

  • @johncrossman  Feb 5

    Thanks for the note. Things are rattling around in my noggin'...

  • @owl  Feb 3

    Hi Elaine! Thank you for coming by to listen and comment!

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 3

    Cheers for commenting Elaine. And yes, the piano is my main thing, it'll always be right there in the mix. πŸ˜€

  • @m5strng Feb 2

    Thanks for getting me into this - cant wait to hear your creations...;)

  • @tawny249  Feb 1

    Thanks! 😁 I try, lol. Sonnets are infinitely more entertaining for me to write than just haikus or limericks. It's a challenge!

  • @timfatchen  Feb 1

    FAWM might be here but so is chaos. Although I've vented my spleen in impro song 1 having had the septic tank vented backwards by the flash flooding. I hope I can hold something together. Looking forward to at least a couple of DiMasi songs. I'm currently upsetting politicians on both sides of the divide, so I guess I'll be crying a "plague o' both your houses" before they silence me...

  • @effigee  Feb 1

    Thanks for the welcome!! I’m excited for this new adventurechallenge 😊 Happy FAWMing!

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 1

    It was fresh in my mind because I had **just** finished a song where I used your advice to just hold a note as long as you can, and then, seeming on its own volition, it changed right at the end of the song and it made me say, "Oh, yeah! This is what Elaine meant!"

  • @autoclamp  Jan 31

    Fancy jobs rule!

  • @barbara  Jan 31

    Oh my! Your sonnet is a treat! Can we just have February Sonnet Writing Month?
    Have a wonderful FAWM!

  • @intelligentzombie Jan 31

    that book sounds awesome. xD i think the last zombie book i read was warm bodies, which also has a rather intelligent zombie 😝

  • @stephenwordsmith Jan 31

    Thank you, Elaine. That bar is set pretty high, too.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 30


  • @cts  Jan 30

    Happy FAWMing!! All the best to you!

  • @nancyrost  Jan 30

    One of the guys from Firefall lived across the street from me; I used to babysit his kid. Not the "Cinderella" writer, though.

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 30

    Welcome back, and congratulations on the new gig. Have a great FAWM, Elaine.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 29

    P.S. Is the Firefall pitch meant for @toms, guitar hero from MI? πŸ˜€

  • @johncrossman  Jan 28

    Sure, I'm up for trying new adventures despite my early-fawm jitters. Speaking of adventures, gee whiz, you switched coasts!

  • @rickatfulcrum Jan 28


  • @izaakalexander  Jan 28

    I appreciate the busy new gig and relocation vibes--- I'm dealing with the same, but hope to get a FAWM out of it. I'll be listening!

  • @swampjaw  Jan 25

    Yup. Back in business. Good to see you here.

  • @hummingbear  Jan 24

    Happy FAWMing! New album title: Hushed and Hasty. I like it!

  • @toms Jan 23

    You had a grand idea. πŸ˜€

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 23

    I was so eager to start, I began in December 😁

  • @toms Jan 23

    Well, now the suspense is killing me. πŸ˜€

  • @humblecomposer  Jan 23

    For SURE! o/

  • @postcardhelicopters  Jan 23

    Happy Leap of Fourth, Elaine!

  • @nancyrost  Jan 19

    Leaping for joy!

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    have the best FAWM this year!
