Influences: Disney and Depression. And Bjork obvs.
FAWM 4 for me! My first year being a half hearted attempt, I’d only just picked up a guitar and had no idea I knew how to write songs but was very happy to find I could:) I managed a win in 2017 and 2018! I never start a FAWM with any expectations to complete but the bug has always bit me in past years and made me want to push myself across the finish line. Will see how we go but my full time job is always getting in the bloody way!
I have no bells or whistles (for shame!), just an acoustic guitar and an iPad with earphones and an in-line mic 😀 My partner @adforperu (he’s a musical genius) bought me a beautiful tanglewood electroacoustic for my birthday last year so I’m thinking of hooking that up to my iPad and recording it in Garage band. Wish me luck with this! I have little musical knowledge so please forgive my ignorance, still trying to get my head around what a ‘key’ actually is. God help me.
HAVE A GREAT FAWM! I can’t wait to listen and just soak up the general FAWM vibes. Thank you for listening/commenting on my stuff!

Aww glad you liked ‘a beautiful stranger’ and I’m so happy jack put it too music cause I had a bit of a soft spot for it! Hope you’re not overran cause I’m looking forward to all the other great songs you have in your locker 😀
Yeah PLEASE don't email me horse sounds. That would scare the shit out of the internet.
**Pawing the ground**
Translation: "I really don't care Julie. I want horse sounds. And Hay."
No. Ms. Iwilleatyou can't sing worth shit. In fact if you flush a toilet it would be more melodic. And yes I am prepared for her backhand slap just for saying that.
So how are you doing with reciprocating? I think I got everybody but man....this is NOT easy.
Just have to say...
Love your comments!!
Someone told me last year that I curse a lot in my comments and
So this year I made a conscious effort not to.
Glad I found someone who doesn’t give a shit..
Oooo thanks Julie. I didn't see actually! *searches feed*
Ahh Julie, thanks for such a thoughtful comment. Made me feel all happy inside! x
Thank you for your kind comments on "When You're Sleeping." The lyrics began with a real moment and bloomed into something bigger. I was so fortunate to have Karlos as a collaborator.
Just having someone "steer" you in the right direction having watched what you're doing can help (I'm a coach and trainer in my day job, not physical, mental). So, being serious, if you and Adam fancied dropping in for a cuppa, a jam and some tips any time, feel free!
Aww, Julie. 😊
You say the nicest things, thank you!
I give lessons, but I guess it'd be a bit of a trek. 😉
Practise with a goal in mind. That's what seems to work for me. That, and almost fifty years of playing bass... 😉
Hi! Yes, I'd love for you to give a go at it. I guess just do a track of vocals-only while listening to it and send them to me? Does that work?
Yes, I'm going to take a break commenting now as otherwise I'll just end up chatting utter shit. Time for a nap. I know! I'm not the most observant hahahaha. Not sure how I missed it was a stave.
It is in fact a stave. Although I've only just noticed hahahaha. Yeah I'm so sorry. I was thoroughly confused and have since edited my comment in a blind panic hahah
Sent you an email ♥︎ I got my tools fixed
Dude.....check this out....Dirty Cheats Done Dirt Cheat. We must write that tune.
OMG why aren’t you on my watchlist haha i wondered why I kept missing your songs doh 🙈 I’m glad you liked “beautiful generation” it took me a while to get mildly happy with it. I’m 100% sure you would do something amazing with it (as always) so it’s there for the taking if you change your mind 😀
Thanks for the kind comments on my song Julie✌🏼 Yes, Nanna crochet’d that blanket. She also crochet’d an amazing guitar amp cover for me by special request! What a gal!
Thank you for your lovely comments on 'the winds are changing' - i always struggle with knowing if they're lyrics or poetry arghh! I love Madrid too, i had a great time even if i did drink a little too much 😉 I can see i have lots of catching up to do on your songs - i'll make some time to listen to them over the next few evening, cause i know they will all be fab 😀
Judypie you still not appearing on my feed . When I saw you done 8 I was like 😵😵😵😵.
Ok much pleasure to look forward to 🙏🏻👍
I'm totally familiar with brighteyes! Thanks for that comparison. Probably my two biggest influences in that genre are Sufjan and Elliot Smith.
Thanks so much for the comments. Much appreciated.
Hi Judy. Thanks for listening to my "That Dress She Wore" - glad you liked the twist at the end. I had been watching too many series on Netflix before FAWM 😁
You’re so clever. Your liner notes are always the best. Hopefully Tomo will be better soon and we can make more music. Your songs have been so good this FAWM.
Yes! Animatronic vegetables. It was wild 😜
Haha...you're the hero Julie. Seriously. You are impressive with your songwriting. And what is it? 3 years doing this? That's really impressive. You have angels working through you 😀
I'm actually listening to it....ok...I can hear it maybe just a tad?? I think I know where he is coming from. It's Ritchie-esque...but I don't hear *me* sounding like him. OK...well.....I'm a bit blown away from the comparison. I do respect him as a musician I just never thought....
And *Me* sounding like Adam??? No way. He's got a much higher range than I do. Great voice. Flattered though! It's interesting what different people hear. I'm gonna play All Night Long tonight while drinking whiskey.
Oh GOD!!!! My buddy just emailed me and said I sound like Lionel Ritchie on It's Not Hard.....WTF?? Of all singers.
GTFO on my Pizza? Sure why not. Garlic Tomatos Fries and Onions....mmmm mmmmm.
Pizza? Yum. I like mine with everything on it. Including anchovies.
You're not a judge so sit on a chicken and qwack like a duck. Oh and please tell Adam I love him. He really is an inspiration and if it weren't for him...i would not be a bad ass riff master. Give him some tea when you tell him.
Aww. Julie, you are really kind, thank you. 😊
And the chords were really simple, mainly C D A E G and F. I think the right hand picking is what makes them sound complex, and a few hammer-ons. The "secret" is practise. 😉
Thanks for the constructive crits. I'll have to dial that bass back in a bit!
Hi! I see u got lots of new ones i didnt checked yet. Ill jump here soon.
Don't be absurd. I had some for lunch too.
Julie Marie Englebert.
Remix sounds good 😉 I could send you the spoken parts with "fuck" 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁 jokin.. 😉
You r such a sweetheart. I love your comment, thanks. U made my day!
Stop spreading my secret French ways!
Maybe leave him tied up and force collabs only with you for the rest of fawm 😜👍
Hey Judypie! Thanks loads for dropping by and taking a listen. And thanks even more for the lovely comments. 😊
Wow I just heard it, it's amazing! thanks! I'll make a tea now. Good idea.
Nice... great progress.... I'm still dazzled and feel like I was knocked out from my first song, gonna recuperate with other people's songs and continue hopefully very soon. Enjoy the movie.
How are things on your side?
Julie ! thank you so much for your nice comment man... You really warmed my heart, I needed this support for the beginning, I'm so happy inside right now! You don't know how hard it was mentally to finish this, darn.... It's the first time I'm recording without acoustic/electric guitar/piano I think.. just two electric guitars, it came out cool.
😁 😁 BIG SMILE.
Thank you !! hahaha....there needs to be some metal somewhere. Will see what comes out...
Niiiiiice Spanish track...the last bit with the Spanish is lush.
Hi! Thanks for your really thoughtful message on my board. I can’t wait to listen to the two songs you posted already. And yes to that T-shirt! Cheers!
Hey you 😀 Check your email. Off to listen to your tunes.
Lol. After reading the liner notes of "your'e my everything" I don't know if I should take the lyrics and song seriously or not but anyway, it is a great song. I like it more if it's serious, but that's your art.
Don't stress about it come on... no excuses, you got more than enough! can't believe I missed your first post. I was so busy, unusual. How is it going now? Sorry about my numbness earlier I was having some bad vibes.
Ah yes, that was probably one of my faves to come out of last year. A challenging one to write compared to the usual beats and such things!
Thank you for the kind words Julie - especially the video game reference haha!!! The kids are dragging me away right now but I'm going to listen to yours tonight. WOO WOO!
Happy fawm to you too! It's hard to get the first one out, I need some more time, but no pressure, as long as I have something I'm happy. I wanna produce the first one a bit to get some motivation boost. How are things in your area?
Oh haven’t written anything else yet . Just want your vocals and melodic invention on a collab . Woohoo 🙌 x
Ah thank you lovely. Honestly you would have cracked up had you seen my recording balcony 😵. I wanna send you some guitar stuff and let you do the rest . Honestly I am all collab crazy this year 🙏🏻
Keen to hear what you’ve got in store for us this year, I think you wrote the catchiest tune I heard last year... the line that kept repeating at the end...
Which song from last year are you referring too? Maybe the one Ad and I did?
See ya round😊✌🏼
Thanks for the really kind comment on "You Won" - I look forward to hearing your music this year! 😀
yo yo YO!
You should TOTALLY write some rdr2 songs!! 😀
Did you get garage band working? Lotty got an iPad and it’s got it on so think I’m gonna use it if I can work it out!
Me too, Look forward to hearing your great work again this year!
Hope you have a great FAWM!! Thanks for collaborating on scars last year, it was great fun 😀
Thank you so much for your kind words and helpful hints. Have a great month!
Hahaha I'm a little late to the parti but here we are! Ooh nice you two buy each other instruments, cute! I just steal Michael's heheh. Happy fawming! x
I am having waaaaay more fun with the fake band names thread than I ever imagined! Can't wait to start the actual songwriting!
hi, beautiful!! 💕💕
can’t wait to hear that emotional and lovely voice of yours (I hope work won’t get in the way too much for you!)
Haha, I wrote one in my head today. Can't wait. Tomorrow I'm doing 3 object writing in one. Big exercise before fawm. Make sure you make the time for it!
Hi Julie!!! Have fun! I start to feel fawm in the air. I think it should be added to the international calendars.
Hello. Hope you have a good FAWM.
He Julie, thanks for your friendly words. I'm looking forward for your songs, and for finding maybe some bit's of sheffieldness in them.
hiya there! let'sver beaver thisver motherbeaving FAWM, yeahver!
Heyo! Here we go again...
Hope you have a good one this year! Looking forward to hearing more of your stuff.
Thank you very much!
I also love the pic, hehe. His name is Theo.
Oooh, those Tanglewood acoustics are real nice, what a gift! I hope to hear fome of it.
Here I am! Where are you?
HEY! Have a good FAWM, looking forward to hearing your stuff 😀
Hiya!! Happy FAWM 2019!
Hi lovely x
Well hello there! I need an internet magic course for how the hell Daniel managed to get a gif on here

You’re not right.
Thank you. 😀
Glad to see you back, I hope you'll have a great FAWM. ❤️
Did you use GarageBand & stuff last year? Reckon you'll have done a good job so I'll stick with it unless you advise otherwise!
It might be a disaster but it's going to be a FUN DISASTER!! LOL, well I think GarageBand and Apple mic works just great but then what do I know haha! Can't wait to hear your stuff too!!!
Yeah well as soon as you are done with the 3 giraffes get to work on some choruses. Leave the dishes to Adam. Make him useful.
Because we follow a lot of the same people, I have noticed what appears to be a social rating scale based on the number of repetitions of the word "Hi".
Can I ask what the criteria are? Like, if you're interesting you get a Hi! but what qualifies you for a second or third Hi?
That's a good sign! I have a few ideas too. So looking forward to hearing you sing & play again
FUCK YESSSS!!!!! AWESOMMMMMMEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
I mean, ok... I'll let you know when and if I am available. Really really busy and stuff. Have to do the dishes and the giraffe needs a bath.
Hey you! I'm unsure what's going on but I took a peek at the backwards thread a little earlier.....hope everybody is cool.
Anyhow, you ready for 2019? You ready for another collab? Let me know if we have a round 2.
Hi lovely 😀 yay, Fawm soon! Wooo
