Artist Bio

2021 note: I think I might be back this year. Hi friends ๐Ÿ˜€

American in Germany - she/her

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I've been writing songs since I was about eight, and have hundreds of them by now, more than two decades later. I've been doing FAWM (more or less) every year since 2006, and wrote twenty-eight songs my first year instead of fourteen.

And right now, on the cusp of my umpteenth FAWM, I have no idea how to write a song.

This is nothing new. I feel this way every time I finish a song. I feel this way at every moment when I'm not actively writing a song. And honestly, if I stopped to think about it, I would probably even feel this way WHILE I'm writing a song.

Every time, I'm starting from scratch. Every time, I'm back to square one. With every song I manage to achieve, I'm reinventing the wheel. Reinventing the will.

But where there's a will, there's a way. And somehow, the songs keep happening.

Welcome (back), friends and FAWMers!

    Hey Jinx! I guess I'm not really back but I do come around to listen to tunes. Maybe I'll get my recording setup running at some point, but who knows. I'm glad to see you're back at it!

    Jiiiinx!! So good to see you back here! I've been living vicariously through all your Germany stories; I miss Europe so much and I can't wait to get back so I find your tales of German bureaucracy oddly comforting ๐Ÿ˜

    Hehe one of said fuckers was called Morph, so immediately sprang to mind from that title! But glad it holds up without that knowledge, I try to keep things accessible for people without nostalgia for weird plasticene people ๐Ÿ˜€
