I am a singer-song writer from Johannesburg South Africa. I have been writing songs since the beginning of 2013. This is my fifth FAWM.
For Band in a box users out there I have a video course called “First song With Band in a box”. The link is here https://www.joannecooper.co.za/online-courses. I also have an ebook “Band-in-a-box 101: a beginners guide to making and performing with backing tracks with band in a box”
If anyone would like me to tune their vocal track for them for a fiverr here is a link to my fiverr gig.
For anybody interested in purchasing band in a box, I have recently become a reseller and can offer some good prices and some other goodies thrown in. Drop me a message or check it out here https://www.joannecooper.co.za/band-in-a-box
Gorgeous Joanne! I really love the sensitivity you brought to Wind Over Water.
Hi Joanne! Thanks for the listen on Bib in the Crib, glad you enjoyed it. In answer to your question, the animal sounds were hanging around in a dusty file in my computer, downloaded a long time ago from a royalty-free site.
Just got another one up; RB was somehow able to render from some very corrupted files.
Now, to listen to your entries!
Good for you on the fitness front. I'd love to hear your experience with the 75 Hard.
Thank you so much for your kind words on "Take a Little Time". I'll happily take a comparison to Chrissie any day!
Sounds great! Looking forward to hearing it
HI Joanne! I'd be interested in hearing what you would do with 'My Name Is Not Jolene'. I do know my daughter was trying to work something out also. So as long as you are ok with that. LMK
I can't believe I didn't have you on my Watch list. Just rectified that.
Hi Joanne! What a pleasure to meet you here again! Have a wonderful FAWM!
Hello Joanne !! Happy FAWMing 😀 Maybe we can do something together again 😀
Hi Joanne! Just 1 week till FAWM!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.
"Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.
But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
Hello Jo! Looking forward to hearing more of your work this year. Hope it's a good one. Take care.
Yo J-Coop. Here we go again, eh? We have the whole curfew to write, wheeeeeeeee!
