Hey everyone! I'm Heid, I'm from the twin cities, and I like goofing around with music. This is my first FAWM following my first dip into 50/90 early last fall!
I like writing weird stuff, but mostly I just like writing stuff at all. Excited to learn with y'all this year 😀
any pronouns for me!
Oh and if you're interested in my spotify, here it is. I've got two singles out right now and have an album in the works! https://open.spotify.com/artist/6mjY2yLshb2pUKQNTEPUag

Thank you so much for the last minute compliment on “snowfall” song. Not sure if you’ll see this so maybe I’ll stop by your Insta and say paste this comment there. It’s just... I’ve had a bit of a rough past few days and wasn’t able to get here to say thank you.
It’s really touching that you say you listened to that song a number of times and the compliments you gave about it. It means they world to me. Thank you so much.
Thank you Heid!
Thanks for the comments this FAWM, I quite enjoyed your songs! I'll be back to listen and comment on more this month. Would you be interested in doing a collab in the future, maybe this 50/90? I was thinking a loose Rock song where we both sing would be pretty fun.
And congratulations to you on winning FAWM!
I'll get back to on the POLY tho for sure, 😀 Thanks, xoxo
If you're up for it I think you still could do in March? hmm just if you'd like to 😉
Had a listen to your Spotify, really like the songs and the vocal delivery.
My band's Spotify is here if you are interested in having a listen:
I am jes writing to say I like you. You are a friend of marsupials and our community appreciates that!
Oh and also I think I read somewhere on your page that you do taxidermy? If that is true I'd like to see if you might be able to stuff a couple of my relatives. My Uncle Homer got hit by an ice cream truck last week and my 2nd cousin Snaggle Snout was run over by some sort of construction equipment, maybe a steam roller. I have saved their remains in a cardboard box and it is gettin' kinda ripe so I'd like to get 'em stuffed sooner than later!
Well, that's all fer now. Remember, if you ever need an opossum to live in yer attic jes hit me up!
Oh boy! I’ve got some listening to catch up. Nice! KEEP GOING! Almost there...!
Thank you for your kind words on my page. I am delighted that you are a friend of opossums! Waddles and Peapod Ernest Hemingway Jones sound like very nice opossums!
I will listen to some of your music too! I see you have 10 songs already! Congrats!! I only have 5 and I am prolly out of music juice but who knows? Maybe I could write a song about your opossum friends!
Thanks for stopping by! That skirmish was complicated but fun!
Thanks for your wonderful comments on “No Loss, No Gainer,” btw. I really appreciate it. Always.
I feel the same for those who can play brass instruments. Not me there.
I can play guitar, bass, harmonica, some keys, mandolin. That’s about it. Drums? No. I have a cajon and some percussive instruments. But it’s not my strong suit.
Oooh! Hey, that's so cool to find someone I know from Instagram on FAWM. And thanks for the comment on the Manitoba-Minnesota song!
I thought Amelea did an awesome job especially given how different style-wise that song is from her usual style!
I forgot to ask: What are the instruments that you know?
Thank you SO MUCH for your comments on my new tunes. I’ll keep looking out for your music. The last ones of mine are probably the angriest. Might do a couple more. We’ll see.
9 instruments, huh? I guess I’ve got 5 or 6 for me. The last one (clarinet) has been YEARS. I’d forgotten it by now. So, 5.
thanks for your comments on my songs!! looking fwd to returning the favor 😀
Thank you for commenting on my song. I listened to one of yours and I like it so much, I'm going to listen to some more. Happy Fawm!
Thanks for your comment on my song! This was my first time doing a random collaboration and I was super nervous, but I loved how it turned out! 😀
Thanks so much for the comment on “Wolf Song”!
Come on... really? Laurie Anderson as your first influence?!?! Sweet!! Huge fan since forever ago. Solid list and loved that song of yours with my drums - going to check out some more. 😀
Wow... thank you so much for the kind words about my little ukulele song and the compliment on my voice. I'm still having a hard time dealing with it but I really need to get passed it. It's the 9th and I only have one song posted! I have another in the works if I can just get passed my voice issue.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to comment. I'm humbled that it touched you. Muah!
Awesome, thanks.. so I'm still waiting on some to get back on making the music and all, and I was thinking to use something to get the group of girls to sing together like ...some social platform .not sure where/what is best atm.. so may be a bit.
Hey, thanks for all your kind comments so far. Really appreciate it
I appreciate your kind words! I had a lot of fun being in character and it means a lot that you enjoyed it too 😁

Thank you for your kind words! It means a lot.
Thank you so very much for your comments in “Mighty Dollar.” Driving soon with car off. I will definitely listen to your tunes and critique as soon as possible.
p.s. LOVE LOVE LOVE that one of your influences is Laurie Anderson! So uncommon and so under appreciated. Definitely curious to hear your music now!!
Thank you for your kind comments on “Unfortunately Embodied.” 💖
Thanks for the great comment on my song! The Moody Blues are classic, and I'm totally happy about that comparison lol.
Thanks for saying such nice things about Drum Me A Dance -- so glad you liked it! Really loving your stuff, too! Keep it coming!
I'm glad you know about bending reality as a witch, already. So young to be making actual change in the real world.
