Artist Bio

Back for a 4th year - i didn’t hit 14 songs last year so feeling extra motivated to hit the mark this year!

For once i have actually been writing between FAWMs. Hoping that’s a sign of good things to come and not me peaking too early. I still haven’t learnt to play my keyboard (but I have had 2 years of looking at it and dreaming of stardom so I wouldn’t describe it as a mistake 😉). I do feel like I’ve made some minor improvements in my lyric writing technique though - just started writing lyrics out the blue so now trying to learn some theory to make it easier to put them to music. Constructive feedback is appreciated and welcome 😀

I often write from other people's perspectives as well as my own, so if I come out with an eclectic mix of wackiness, that’s why - I’m not just livin’ a very very wild lifestyle!

If you like any of my lyrics and want to put them to music - hit me up. I’m not precious about you changing lyrics to make it work. One of my favourite parts of FAWM is the collabs I’ve done over the years. There’s nothing better than hearing your ideas flourish into a full song in the hands of talented FAWMers. Making new friends along the way is also not too bad either ha!

Happy FAWM 2020 everyone 🥳

    Wow lots of awesome lyrics here! What a great Fawm you had! Thx for the interaction

  • @judypie  Feb 25

    Ha, don’t give him ideas Jordan! He has enough bloody ideas 😝

  • @judypie  Feb 24

    Hahahahaha god dam fictitious garden in the bloody East! 😂

  • @iwilleatyou  Feb 24

    I'm on the top of the list for something as filthy as hell? Gee...thanks?

    ....actually I'm blushing. Compliments embarrass me.

  • @judypie  Feb 22

    Hahahah, fantastic, I never heard the Lana Del Ray one! I think it is a legit line for us ALL to get on board with 😁

  • @colgoo Feb 22

    Thank you for the feedback on “Wooden Spoon”! I just finished playing all three of our collabs back to back. They are so much fun to sing!!!

    I am wondering when you and I are going to make an album together? Wouldn’t that be a powerful album? I need to publish my first solo album first, though, so we have a FAWM or two to go! I think you, Elizabeth and Doug are my all-time favorite collaborators. Some of my favorite FAWM songs have come from the lyrics of y’all.

  • @judypie  Feb 21

    Your lyrics are LIT, glad u dig it! I always get scared putting other people’s words to music! 😁🔥 🔥🔥

  • @siebass  Feb 21

    Sure thing! It was fun. Sorry if it didn't end up as rock as you would have liked; I ended up hearing something more avant garde

  • @siebass  Feb 21

    I just finished the Wandermust collab; I hope you enjoy. Let me know if you want to be credited differently in the liner notes for the lyrics.

    Thanks,

  • @jamkar  Feb 20

    Thank you BTW. Let’s do it again sometime.

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    Hehehehhe. I emailed u some questionzzzzz

  • @jamkar  Feb 20

    That crackle was me overdriving the mike. :-O

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    Erm, also I just saw you have 50 million new songs I need to catch up with arghhhh. I got a to do list longer than my penis! No way I’m wrapping all this shit up before fawm ends 😭

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    I am working on our filthy tune😁 I was meant to be taking a break tonight but I just listened to what I got so far and now I’m hard at it 😂. send help!

  • @colgoo Feb 18

    Honestly, I don’t think you’ve changed direction so much as letting creativity lead you into exploring various types of connection. And honestly, truth telling and connection are Integral parts of story telling and song writing. So follow your muse and keep crafting songs: love songs, nerdy songs, angry songs. Trust your feelings and insert the rhythm of life into them and you’ll succeed.

  • @faststrings Feb 17

    Hey Jorh, thanks for the comment on the song Bobby Is A Good Picker I appreciate it.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 17

    Thanks for commenting on my collab song "Who We Really Are", I appreciate it!

  • @siebass  Feb 16

    No worries; I'm pretty slow this year, so I am just doing what I can. Were you imagining Wandermust as something heavy guitar-driven? I think I could see that. I just googled Grimes; so something synth-pop-esque? That could be fun.

  • @tiller2  Feb 16

    You're on a tear this year! Congrats on the win. And thanks for your kind comments on "I Have a Question." My voice is in its best shape in years, thanks to getting past some sinus problems, knock on wood. Cheers.

  • @siebass  Feb 16

    I was actually looking at doing "What do you do?", but I'll take a look at Wanderlust as well; I haven't heard what I want to do on any of them yet in my head, so I've been mulling the lyrics over.

  • @nahlej381  Feb 16

    Thanks for the listen! My buddy @codeenergy killed that track, he's one of the best lyricists I know. I look forward to peeping some of your tunes!

  • @codeenergy Feb 16

    Thanks for your comment on my song. It means alot!! I see you are getting to it with these lyrics. Nice job!

  • @cts  Feb 16

    Well now, I didn't realize you had already crossed the 14 finish line. Congratulations and thank you for the comment on Read Me.

  • @katmtl Feb 15

    Thank you for listening! I appreciate your comment on Naughty.❤️😎

  • @s7even  Feb 15

    Thank you very much for your incredible comment on “Oh My Darling” . It’s extremely encouraging. Im grateful that you listened and I’m happy that you like it!

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 15

    I've now made the song Follow downloadable - https://fawm.org/songs/104398/

  • @lute4life Feb 15

    Thanks for the kind words about "Come with Me"

  • @jamkar  Feb 15

    Thanks! I’ll get started! 😀

  • @siebass  Feb 13

    Sure thing! Is there any lyric you'd prefer I use? My only request is I'd rather not swear so I can play the final song for my kiddos.

  • @kc5 Feb 11

    Jorh, Thank you for your sweet comments. They really warmed me up inside.

  • @owl  Feb 11

    Thanks for the comment!

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 11

    Congrats on already being so close to the 14 goal! Looks like the writes between wasn't an early peak after all! I'm pleased that I started writing more in-between, though very little in fact. Hey, something is something!

  • @hummingbear  Feb 10

    Thanks for commenting on "Little House Beside the Sea." The music turned out so well, glad you enjoyed it.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 8

    I would like to thank you very, very much for your wonderful and that profound comment!

  • @barbara  Feb 8

    Hi! Thank you so much for your insightful comments on ‘Selkie’ and the outro especially. I really didn’t have that as my aim while writing, but when I got to the last verse, and wanting the music to die down and return to the starting level, I thought to try it, and the new meaning dawned on me too. I just thank the muse for that perfect fit!

  • @zuza Feb 8

    Thanks a lot for your lovely comment!

  • @frey Feb 5

    Shot you an e-mail with what I made with your lyrics!

  • @colgoo Feb 5

    I am so honored that you recommended one of my songs....I definitely feel that I messed it up a bit at the end, but I’m not focusing on perfect recordings this month. I’m glad you could hear past that.

  • @frey Feb 5

    Hey, just saw your comment. Never done one, but I'm definitely willing to try a collab. I'll happily read your lyrics. My e-mail is freywaelput at hotmail dot com 😀

  • @frey Feb 5

    Hi, thanks for your comment on my profile! This week has been super busy, but I'm trying to make time for FAWM 😀 can't wait to check out your tunes this year

  • @colgoo Feb 4

    I added my recording of “Everywhere and Nowhere”.

  • @colgoo Feb 4

    Our song is up!!! Have a listen.

  • @colgoo Feb 3

    Thanks for your feedback on “Everywhere and Nowhere”.

    As for collaboration, I am honored. Yay! Happy to take a look at the lyric, and to have your trust in my ability to tweak it. You write such beautiful poetry and your lyrics are some of my favorite songs to sing. You can send it to colgoo at me dot com.

  • @jenjen  Feb 3

    Thanks for your encouragement on my song - Rogue trampolinin! Happy creating to you!

  • @songwritingzen  Feb 2

    Hey, thank you so much for your comments on "What If We Are All Alone" and I really love your insights into the backing vocals. Cheers 😀

  • @nateger  Feb 2

    Thank you for the thoughtful words on my song! I'm glad that I could jiu-jitsu my sniffles into part of my song. I love what you said about using the tools that are available - anything can be music if I just shift my perspective a little bit 😀

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback on the rivers run dry. It was a wonderful collaboration. Happy Fawming!

  • @judypie  Feb 2

    Nice, I didn’t catch your second one yet! Glad you like Fresh Start! Did I do the right thing with posting? Like it’s showing you’ve done 3 songs now.. shouldn’t that be only two? I posted it and tagged you as collab.. how else could I have done it so as not to mess up your numbers??

  • @larryw Feb 2

    Hi thanks for the comment on "Without You" glad it worked for you

  • @berni1954  Feb 2

    Thanks for your comment on my "Somewhere" - I left it vague as to whether she needed the gun to give UJ what he deserved or protect herself from anyone trying to take her back. Or whether she planned to use it to survive or simply needed it for protection (the setting being the US). 😉

  • @crisp1  Feb 2

    Thanks for your really nice comments on The Rivers Run Dry! Happy FAWMing!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2

    Thank you for the great comment! 😀

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2

    Maybe we could look at a collab .

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 2

    Cheers for your comments on Rain matey . And I see you are flying already , and your from sheff 😵. Superb . Although I from the peaks I count myself as a sheffielder ..... ish

  • @scubed  Feb 1

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on “Jupiter is Rising in the Morning”! 😊 I really appreciate it. Hope you have a great FAWM!

  • @judypie  Feb 1

    Ya, fka twigs proved a step too far so I’ve gone midway and banged it out on the guitar but through a pedal on garage band. Just need chords for the bridge and then I will record. The disordered guitar also works at hiding my sketchy voice, I was shouting too loudly at a gig last night forgetting I was gonna be singing for the next month-FOOLISH😂

  • @judypie  Feb 1

    Shall I email you the track before I post the collab? I feel like you gave me your email address but I lost it, doh! Jorh@jorh.com??

  • @judypie  Feb 1

    Ooh glad you said yes as the verses popped right out too 😁 Don’t know whether to keep it on guitar or try and fka twig it up a bit and play with garage band. But that means remembering how to use garage band. Hmmmmmmmm. Also I have a hoarse voice from today so am painfully missing the chorus I wrote HAHAHAHA it’s all fun and games isn’t it. I may have to leave til another day to record! Hmmm I just can’t imagine where a third season would go. We can’t have ANOTHER killer get involved? I like it as a 2 piece but will obvs five back in if they go for a third.

  • @siebass  Feb 1

    @jorh no problem, it was a fun collaboration. Glad to see you back this year!

  • @franniezest Feb 1

    Hi, thanks for taking a look at my dream song!

  • @nikke88 Feb 1

    Hi!

    Is it okay that I write some kind of a tune, add "vocal" melody on it and you write lyrics with the help of that "reference melody"? Looking forward for some nice pairing with You!

  • @jorh  Feb 1

    Hey, we’ve been paired up in random collabs. Checked out some of your tracks on sound cloud - the production is amazing, really liked the tracks breathin’ and lullaby. Not sure how you’d prefer to do this - if you want me to write lyrics to a particular theme you like or keeping an eye on my lyrics and see which you fancy? Or something else?
    Looks forward to collabing 😀

  • @roelvanveldt Jan 27

    Hey Jorh, so good to hear from you! I am happy to meet again. Yes, I love our collaboration song "I Am Here", though I hope I can make a better recording someday. I look very much forward to continue working with you on new songs in 2020.

  • @colgoo Jan 23

    Okay! I am in....we’ll see what I come up with for our collaboration this year! Your lyrics are some of my favorite to sing!

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 23

    Of course! Together again, the sequel! Happy FAWM!

  • @judypie  Jan 23

    Yes, really enjoying it so far! 😀 Ah I tried sex education last year when it first landed (on sky I think) cos I love Gillian Anderson but I abandoned after a couple of episodes actually! Not quite as offbeat as eotfw is it? Not from what I remember..

  • @judypie  Jan 23

    Yasssss! Holla! Will keep my eyes peeled for your lyricz! You seen season 2 Eotfuckingw? I am mid-way!

  • @aneil Jan 22

    See u in Feb

  • @judypie  Jan 14
