Artist Bio

I'm back for my third year and can't wait to see what it brings. I haven't written much since last year but hoping FAWM will get the creatives juices flowing again!!

I only write lyrics (i still haven't got round to learning my keyboard despite my best intentions ha!). I often write from other people's perspectives as well as my own.

I have done a few collaborations the last few years, and absolutely loved it. It's great to see my lyrics come to life, see how other's interpret them, and make new friends. I look forward to doing more collaborations this year and getting inspired by other FAWMERS great work.

    It was funny how quickly it came together actually - I think from first looking at the lyrics to recording it was about an hour..

  • @jackketch 1 day

    I'm so glad you like it! I've never done written a song against someone else's lyrics before so thanks for giving me the opportunity. I'm quite pleased with how it came out. My normal style is tongue in check/slightly novelty so it was nice to do something a bit more romantic as it was massively out of comfort zone, which is surely the whole point of this exercise 😀

    Check out @mmmarcus for your rock songs. He is the real deal. I did a collaboration with him last year and it was amazing! He knows how to polish a song. You can also just type in “punk rock” or “heavy metal” or whatever genre you are looking for a music collaborator and listen to (and comment on) people’s work. You are finding some great collaboration partners this year....which you deserve, you write mighty fine lyrics!

    Thanks for your comments on It Hurts. Theatre is exactly what I was thinking it would be best for. Nice to have the affirmation.

    Thanks also for the suggestions on sky - I added a link there but I’m not too in love w how the melody is going. I’ll take a look at your bridge idea ! And the rhyming thing:/

    thanks so much for the comment on my 'make believe' song - i just attempted to add a soundcloud link (but couldn't get it to work so i put the link in the liner notes?!) 😀 i'm very new to all this so thanks for taking the time to read my lyrics (EDIT Got the link working!!!)

    Thanks for your comments on 'Mesmerized". I appreciate it!

    Hello! Looks like we've been selected to do a random collaboration - I'm up for this if you are, have never done it before!
    Had a little look through your lyrics - some great work here! I think I could definitely set them to some music. I already listened to one and it was generating a tune and a rhythm in my head. I don't know if you wanted to have a look at some of my songs and see if there's any particular lyrics you want me to do, or any particular musical genre you have in mind? I'm quite good at parodying genres and would like the challenge, although as you can see my comfort zone is probably folk/country/blues..

    Glad you liked our song! I heard that chorus in my head the moment I read it, so your lyrics gave me that ear worm!

    Thank you for your kind words. Missing my friend, but it's a good thing all in all. 😀

    Appreciate your comments on The Dead Are Riding Tonight...I'm eagerly waiting for Metalfoot's music.....!

    Thanks for your lovely comment on Unexpected Item. Glad you enjoyed it.

  • @colgoo  1 week

    One key difference between your love song and our collaboration last year is that it is easier to swap genders on a parent-child relationship, keeping it universal, than it is to swap out gender on a love song. If I were to sing out on “With Each and Every Rising Tide”, it would dilute the importance of LGBTQ issues, pushing the song into heteronormativity. I could not, in good conscience, do that to your song!

    You should check out Jack Byrne’s music. This is his first FAWM.

    I think he could do an amazing collaboration with your lyrics. I met him at our Boston area FAWM over Party last year and we did a collaboration during 50/90 that I absolutely love. I really enjoy telling people our “how we met” story.

    Thanks for listening to and commenting on "Andrew." I really appreciate you taking the time!

    Thank you for your kind thoughts on my song Birth. So glad you like it. Yes, the piano is a great instrument. Unlike other instruments, you can play a bass line with your left hand while your right hand plays melody. The old Boogie Woogie music is a good example. It's like playing two instruments at once. I love the piano. I also love the sound of the tenor sax, but you can only play one note at a time with it.

    Thanks so much for listening and the kind comments on my song ' sometimes i wonder'. I really appreciate it !

    Hi, hopefully you weren't upset about my comment on your love song! I didn't mean at all that it was unoriginal. I will write a love song for my wife for Valentine's Day and it will be a slightly different way of saying what I've been saying in every song I've written for her for 12 years. Your song was put together nicely, and ready-made for music.

    Yes! The pop noise was totally harking back to high school chem class and my chem teacher popping little vials of hydrogen gas.
