Helen 20


Cambridge GB   Jan 2007


Artist Bio

Influences:   PJ Harvey, Sleater-Kinney, Kate Bush, Blondie

There's something up with my hosting, I think. They play if you open the download mp3 in a new tab (or they do for me anyway) but they don't play nicely with the fawm player. Sorry 😞

FAWM number 14 for me.

I don't need people to thank me for song comments or even reciprocate. I'm happy with a pay-it-forward kind of thing.

Pronouns - she/her

    Thanks for commenting on β€œWandering.” So appreciated!

  • @zecoop  Mar 6

    It's all good... I'm only joking.
    Kind of... πŸ˜‰
    No, really I am.

    Have fun gigs and practices!

  • @zecoop  Mar 6

    How's Fifteen looking? Anything clicking yet? Ahem... I mean... take your time... no rush... πŸ˜‰

  • @billwhite51 Mar 6

    several of your songs will not play in my computer

  • @stephenwordsmith Mar 5

    Yes, please.

    I think it's the best thing I've written this year, and, bizarrely, it was the most ignored. Happy to wait as life is giving me plenty to worry about in the interim πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Mar 4

    Thank you so much! I can't wait to get over there sometime. That date wouldn't have worked anyway, as I am seeing Bob Mould on March 27th and Michael Buble on March 31. (those two shows make sense together, right?) πŸ˜‰

  • @guatecoop  Mar 3

    I’m shouting! Yes please!!

  • @bronnyd  Mar 2

    hey thank you for your comment on Friend πŸ˜€ I'm listening to other fawmer's songs on my day off today and will take a listen to yours shortly

  • @zecoop  Mar 2

    Hey there Helen - Thanks for the listen! Absolutely... The songs don't die after FAWM, since all mine go on the Bandcamp album. So, I would love for you to add a vocal/vocals. Let me know if you need me to send a DAW ready version. Also, can you send me the vocals for the other one you did? I'll be starting to remix and master for the album. πŸ˜€

  • @katmtl Feb 29

    Do you collaborate? Here’s my email if you ever wanna jam! Kmariemusic48@gmail.com😎😎😎

  • @katmtl Feb 29

    Hey there! Thanks for listening to Pikachus Revenge. ❀️❀️❀️

  • @katmtl Feb 29

    Hey there! Thanks for listening to Pikachus Revenge. ❀️❀️❀️

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 28

    Cheers, and you! I'd still be 5 songs short were it not for your assistance πŸ˜€

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 26

    Thanks. I wonder how @cairobraga will make out with his bookend morph, when my lyric accidentally echoes his, but much more negatively.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 23

    Thanks, Helen, for checking out Pandemic Panic. I love the music. I’ve been on eight flights within past 3 weeks and while I don’t want to give into any pandemic panic I was more on edge flying given the many influenza, norovirus, and coraonoviris outbreaks. Sorry one of the many viruses found you! Hopefully it will leave soon!

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 22

    Yep - mostly I just stretched it out very long, and then when I started hearing the "cats" complain I added that bit of wandering melody near the end. Posting shortly!

  • @gwyn1234  Feb 22

    Cheers for your encouraging remarks...very much appreciated!

  • @sph  Feb 21

    Can't say more because of #no-apologies-no-excuses πŸ˜‰

  • @sph  Feb 21

    Thanks for your words on "Martha". I must confess I'm a bit nervous with song - but think it's ok to show it now to the FAWM world and rework it later.

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 19


  • @expendablefriend  Feb 19

    Sometimes I need to eat.

  • @wacha  Feb 16

    Thank you for the very kind words on "Just to Want More"!

  • @guatecoop  Feb 16

    Well, as they say you can’t rush perfection.....hahaha

  • @guatecoop  Feb 16

    Oh no worries or hurry! And yeah, if by epic you man long? β˜‘οΈ

  • @berni1954  Feb 13

    Glad you liked my arrangement of Arthur's "Universal Thoughts"
    I have just been bowled over by your "Recovery".

    I'll be back for more (after I make lunch. I have a hungry teacher heading my way after a hard morning's work with adolescents 😁 )

    Ooops. I just read your comment about not needing to thank you for a listen.... 😁😈

  • @pvk2020  Feb 12

    Thanks for your comments πŸ˜€

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 11

    I'm well, currently in sunny (rainy right now?) San Diego and uploading mp3's after some wine? So I'm fantastic...

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 11

    Hey there! How are you?

  • @guatecoop  Feb 10

    OHHHHH man....RAWK!!🀘

  • @guatecoop  Feb 10

    Hey Helen.........
    Would you be interested in doing some vocals on this?

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 7

    Ooooh...yes please. Mock away. I tried to stick to a click track but I don't think I have been very precise 😞

  • @julesbf Feb 2020

    Thanks for the fyi, I rushed when loading the song in πŸ˜€

  • @auditasum Feb 2020

    Thanks for your comment on "Getaway." The location is the road en route through southern Ohio and West Virginia toward the Carolinas. πŸ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Feb 2020

    Ooh ooh...thanks for commenting. 😝

  • @wacha  Feb 2020

    Thanks for the kind words on "The Legend of the Snoggin Boggin".

  • @owl  Feb 2020

    Hello! Thank you for commenting on "Squid Linguistics"! And for the reassurance that we aren't horrible cheats.

  • @inger  Feb 2020

    I'm happy with pay-it-forward myself too, but I'm still going to thank you 😝 So... thank you!

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 2020

    Too late now!

  • @megsongs Feb 2020

    Hello, I'm back! Impressed you have one up already! I have a couple brewing...

  • @calumcarlyle Feb 2020

    One song already? I am going to need to catch up on my listening as well as my songwriting! Have a great FAWM, Helen, i always enjoy your work.

  • @brownium  Jan 2020

    No, Kiri Te Kenawa didn't sing my song, but I sure wish she would. Even so, it's among my favorite lyrics that I've written:

    Just wrote another song, uses all three chords
    Changing up the rhythm so we won’t get board
    Scratch that, we’ll just play the same thing
    It’s not like Kiri Te Kenawa gonna get up and sing


  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    No worries! Just making my last check ins for that. Hopefully I can come up with something in the standard way to send you. 😎

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Hey, I just noticed that you are on my 4-track address list - Any interest in doing that this year? I'm setting up the tape lists now.... Let me know! πŸ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Jan 2020

    I expect 14 songs in the first day. You can do that right? OK, cool. I'll look forward to it.

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 2020

    Hi Helen, hope you have a fantastic FAWM!

  • @julesbf Jan 2020

    Hi Helen, happy fawming πŸ˜€

  • @andygetch  Jan 2020

    Hey Helen have a great FAWM!

  • @zecoop  Jan 2020

    Happy FAWM to my (new to me) favorite Mod!! πŸ˜‰ I'd love to try to collab this year, as I always love your stuff both here and with GDJ. We've got some overlapping interests too. And you've done stuff with my brother, so i know you are cool. I have no plans for my FAWM, but thought I'd throw that out there. πŸ˜€

  • @brownium  Jan 2020

    Hey - welcome back. See you on the dark side.

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2020

    Hey there! I have no idea what you’re going to do, but I’m sure that I’ll like it. It’s nice to see you around here. Best wishes to you and happy fawming.

  • @stephenwordsmith Jan 2020

    Always a pleasure to see your name. I wish you well in your songwriting and commenting efforts this year.

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 2020

    Oh boy can’t wait to hear your newly hatched jewels..
    Been playing the crap outta β€œA Better Day”
    Thanks for writing such cool songs

  • @nancyrost  Jan 2020

    Looking forward to listening and reconnecting this February. Maybe a collab too, time permitting!

  • @sapient  Jan 2020

    H! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • @unpronounceable Jan 2020

    Check out those rawk hands! πŸ˜€

  • @auditasum Jan 2020

    Welcome back! πŸ˜€

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 2020


  • @johncrossman  Jan 2020

    Hiya Helen, happy to see you, as always!

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 2020

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2020

    I absolutely loved what you did with "I Don't Blame You" last year. If I get an idea can I send you another guitar track for collaboration this year?

    Also, I hope you're around and having fun and here's to a great Fawm.
