Deb Flanders 7


Madison, W US   Jan 2016

Artist Bio

Influences:   Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro, Judy Collins (among others) were playing on my college turn-table in the 70s. Now a big fan of Sara Groves and Chris Rice. Love early 20th century English composers - Fenzi, Butterworth, Vaughan Williams, Holtz, Elgar. Also French impressionists - Debussy, Satie, Faure.

Pianist, guitarist, budding ukelele-ist, and lifetime singer who thinks music is one of God's best ideas!

    Great to meet you and your partner too!

  • @johncrossman  Mar 11

    No problem. Missoula's on here from a few years ago, but it's not too far off from a I, IV V song.

    Let's see, the only slight variation is the major VI. If you make it to the fawm over party, I'll have it on hand. Bring your new guitar!

  • @nancyrost  Mar 8

    Yay! I'll look for you!

  • @nancyrost  Mar 5

    Hi, Madison fawmer! Hope to meet you at Theresa's in a couple weeks. We'll nail down the time soon.

    Party planning here:

  • @johncrossman  Mar 3

    Yeah, that slacker Hannah! I seem to run into her occasionally but not lately. She perhaps has her hands full. 😀

    I think many of the inside jokes in my lyrics are, like, maybe just jokes inside my head so you're not missing much. Trying to amuse myself. 😀

    Funny you should mention... 2 John's & a Nancy are appearing this week at Wild Hog in the Woods (a.k.a. the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center) next Friday, 3/8. That's fawmwqueen @nancyrost, rocker @dasbinky and me in our 2-3x yearly gig. Maybe less.

    Falling that, the local post-fawm gathering is always nice. TBD I think and mentioned in the forum here for Madison people. FOP for "fawm over party." Usually food, music and conversation. Bring food and a friend, family member or fellow musician. Anyone who wouldn't be bored by a bunch of sort of shy musician-types taking about fawm. Check it out!

    "Bells" was very good for me, and my wife as well. Thank you.

    Glad you liked "She Was Gone." I'm looking forward to performing it soon. And I love the fun ones, too; "This Will All Make Sense" and "Wildlife" are going to get some attention soon. Thanks for dropping by.

  • @hazzard Mar 1

    Thank you so much for your supportive and friendly comments on a few of my songs! I'm now in catch-up-and-listen mode too! I'll be listening to yours soon:)

  • @kc5 Feb 28

    Thanks Kadmad202. My eye is certainly on the mini, just hoping for the price to come down a bit. Thanks for sharing your experiences with the Taylor!

  • @hummingbear Feb 25

    Posted it to a new songfile, check it out. (Just noticed you'd watchlisted me. I think we both need to watchlist each other for file sharing to work? Live and learn...)

    Love what you did with it, thank you so very much!

  • @hummingbear Feb 24

    Or, if it's quicker / easier, just send me an email - address on my profile.

  • @hummingbear Feb 24

    I think this will work - I set up the song with you as collaborator, allowing you access to the file. I locked it so others cannot see/hear it, for now. If you post changes, or post a second set of lyrics, I can see it. And/or post the sound file and I can hear it. Never done the locked file setting, but I think it should work.

  • @hummingbear Feb 23

    Thanks for not being afraid to read Bacteria! No music, unless you want to tackle it? (I'm not a musician.) There are a some rough spots with the rhythm so it might take some minor adjusting, depending on the melody.

  • @hummingbear Feb 23

    Thanks for commenting on Natta / Night Night. I don't have a melody in mind, am leaving that up to my collaboration partner @zoom, if she chooses to take this on. (We live an ocean apart and I posted it while she was sleeping...)

  • @zoom  Feb 20

    thanx for your comment on my latest song - the demo is now on there too 😀

  • @ceilidh  Feb 20

    Music is now posted for Touch Not the Cat and other songs 😀 Meow!

  • @jonmeta  Feb 2019

    Thanks for your support on "At Home with my Baby". That was my thought exactly: the title sets you up one way, but the song goes in a different direction. Thanks for listening!

  • @mikeb Feb 2019

    Thanks for the listen and comment on 'So Long Until Next Time' - appreciated!

  • @ceilidh  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your comment on Touch Not the Cat! I do have music, and thought I'd figured out how to get it from my iPod to our home computer and up to the FAWM hosting site, but when I tested this with Sugar the iPod gave us an MP4 which could be converted to MP3, and when we tried it with three more songs, it sent them with a .band designation instead of .mp4 -- except for the one it said was too big to e-mail. *grumble of thunder* I'm off to spend some time with your Cat now... 😀

  • @johncrossman  Feb 2019

    Hello hello, welcome back!

  • @kadmad202 Jan 2019

    Looking forward to FAWM 2019! Just a few more days...
