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.

    Okay, I started early, because I didn't think you'd mind 😀 Here's what I have for struggling to love - let me know what you think. I can post it or you can. Hope you like it. This is a download link for it.

    Ah I can make a nice jorh ear necklace for my jewellery box! This isn’t getting creepy at all.. 😛

  • @judypie  Feb 21

    Hehe yes Jorh! Lend me your earsssss! Pronoun swap would be easy I guess, just would be nice to keep it true to the show! I’ll see how much time I am left with. Could always have a play post-Fawm :-0 IS THAT ALLOWED? 😛

  • @downburst  Feb 21

    Oh... I thought you were writing a new one. But I'll look over the stuff you have up!

  • @ceilidh  Feb 20

    Music is now posted for Stay Alive! and other songs 😀

  • @treble  Feb 20

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments about my Trouble With the I.R.S. skirmish lyrics. Very helpful and I'll incorporate your suggestions into the final version!

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 20

    Thanks for the comment!

  • @nancyrost  Feb 20

    Insightful reading on Crimson, thank you for letting me know my meaning is getting across!

  • @srcoops Feb 20

    Thank you for your kind remarks regarding Home

  • @mmmmarcus Feb 19

    Thank you very much for the nice comment on After The Storm! Glad you liked the track!

  • @suziewithaz  Feb 19

    Thank you for the comment on Celtic Moon. I appreciate your words.

  • @rbmarty000 Feb 19

    Thanks for your comments.. very good of you to read the entire lyrics.
    I like the way you write.. very interesting and you are very good at scansion. I would like to try one of yours.. perhaps you have a suggestion. I like A Beautiful Stranger..

  • @dutch1967 Feb 19

    Hey thanks for that generous comment on Never Been. yeah, I'm happy the way the song turned out. I tried to keep it simple and focused on the feeling of being 'in love', more than what usually follows in relationships. The immediate, overwhelming feeling of being in love is the greatest in the world, I think. Yes, a VERY close second is the feeling of realising a great love is returned, but the waves of rushing hormones in the early stages of being in love... wooooh!

  • @jonmeta  Feb 19

    Wow, thanks! —for listening and commenting at length and saying very encouraging things.

  • @caterwauler  Feb 18

    Thank you for your kind comments as well. Have a great FAWM!

  • @jackketch Feb 17

    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 Feb 17

    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 😀

  • @colgoo  Feb 17

    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!

  • @misterd Feb 16

    Thanks so much for listening and kind words on my ukulele song!

  • @factorytale Feb 15

    Thank you for the nice comment

  • @jackketch Feb 15

    Hey, sorry for leaving you hanging - super busy week at work so haven't been able to FAWM. Will get back onto it this weekend if that's ok!

  • @tjeff  Feb 15

    Thanks for commenting!

  • @ceilidh  Feb 14

    Thank you for your comment on Stay Alive! I'll try to let you know when a demo is up!

  • @tiedyehero Feb 14

    Thanks so much for your kind comment! I'll get ya back as soon as I get a chance!

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 14

  • @kc5 Feb 14

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

  • @franniezest Feb 14

    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:/

  • @franniezest Feb 14

    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!!!)

  • @s7even  Feb 13

    Thank you for your encouragement on “that’s why I pray”. Very much appreciated.

  • @kc5 Feb 11

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

  • @jackketch Feb 11

    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..

  • @colgoo  Feb 9

    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!

  • @adnama17  Feb 2019

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

  • @igg Feb 2019

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

  • @andybalham Feb 2019

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

  • @colgoo  Feb 2019

    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!

  • @colgoo  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @rebeccajasso Feb 2019

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

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @misterd Feb 2019

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

  • @chipwithrow  Feb 2019

    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.

  • @francessmith  Feb 2019

    Hello John, thanks for your comment on Silver Ship.

  • @crisp1  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the kind words about my lyric The Night Reigns. It has now been turned into music.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2019

    You are very welcome. I'm sure you'll find good collaborators for your beautiful work.

  • @valeriecox  Feb 2019

    Hi there. Thanks for the comment!

  • @aprilm  Feb 2019

    Thanks for your comments on Blood Wolf Moon! I am so flattered. I'll watch for your songs. Look forward to hearing what you produce!

  • @judypie  Feb 2019

    Oh cool, I never heard of her, will check her out! 😀

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2019

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

  • @srcoops Feb 2019

    Thanks for your kind words. I am here is a strong effort with a lot of meaning.

  • @colgoo  Feb 2019

    Love the idea of collaborating with you again....I will look over your lyrics.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2019

    Thanks so much for your kind compliment.. <3
