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.

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

  • @zecoop  3 weeks

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

    Have fun gigs and practices!

  • @zecoop  3 weeks

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

  • @billwhite51 3 weeks

    several of your songs will not play in my computer

  • @stephenwordsmith 3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

    I’m shouting! Yes please!!

  • @bronnyd  3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

    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 3 weeks

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

  • @katmtl 3 weeks

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

  • @katmtl 3 weeks

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

  • @expendablefriend  4 weeks

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

  • @moonraccoon  4 weeks

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

  • @kahlo2013  4 weeks

    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  5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

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

  • @sph  5 weeks

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

  • @sph  5 weeks

    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  5 weeks


  • @expendablefriend  5 weeks

    Sometimes I need to eat.

  • @wacha  5 weeks

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

  • @guatecoop  5 weeks

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

  • @guatecoop  5 weeks

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

  • @berni1954  6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    Thanks for your comments πŸ˜€

  • @fiddlerblick80  6 weeks

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

  • @fiddlerblick80  6 weeks

    Hey there! How are you?

  • @guatecoop  6 weeks

    OHHHHH man....RAWK!!🀘

  • @guatecoop  6 weeks

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

  • @mariekevinkmusic  7 weeks

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

  • @julesbf 7 weeks

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

  • @auditasum 7 weeks

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

  • @valeriecox  7 weeks

    Ooh ooh...thanks for commenting. 😝

  • @wacha  7 weeks

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

  • @owl  7 weeks

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

  • @inger  7 weeks

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

  • @expendablefriend  7 weeks

    Too late now!

  • @megsongs 7 weeks

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

  • @calumcarlyle 7 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

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

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 27

    Hi Helen, hope you have a fantastic FAWM!

  • @julesbf Jan 26

    Hi Helen, happy fawming πŸ˜€

  • @andygetch  Jan 25

    Hey Helen have a great FAWM!

  • @zecoop  Jan 24

    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 23

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

  • @guatecoop  Jan 23

    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 22

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

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 20

    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 19

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

  • @johncrossman  Jan 16

    Hiya Helen, happy to see you, as always!

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @tcelliott  Jan 13

    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.
