@kahlo2013 

Madison US   Jan 2013


Artist Bio

Influences:   All genres and styles - from Baroque and Blues to Renaissance and Rock.

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers or They/Theirs

After many years of loving deeply, learning broadly, laughing freely, and living fully with a wild and crazy muse as my guide, I began writing songs and started to play music as inspired by a fellow former FAWMer. We made an album together. That was in 2013. I have since had the remarkable opportunity to collaborate writing music with many awesome FAWMers far and near who inspire and delight me with their talents and passion.

I am grateful to you, my fellow FAWMers, for your inspiration, encouragement, and generosity! You never cease to impress and amaze me. I am sure this FAWM will be no exception! Enjoy!

Always open to collaborations, challenges, and co-writing! Happy to write lyrics for you or have you put music to mine.

ALL LYRICS are OPEN for COLLABORATION unless I note otherwise. Just let me know! I am open to any musician’s minor tweaks and musical ideas! Thanks so much for looking!

  • @rickamorphis  2 weeks

    Hi Liz! I didn't FAWM much this year but I wanted to ask you if it would be OK if I used our collab from last year ('I Just Want You') on a Bandcamp release I'm planning for next month. Of course I'd credit you in the liner notes. And also, congrats on the most prolific FAWM I've ever seen!

  • @sbs2018 3 weeks

    And “Dancing to a Different Drummer.” 😀

    Hey, thanks for commenting on Daydreams, the Wanderlust challenge.

  • @dzd  3 weeks

    wow! thank you so much.
    is a toughie and I made it tougher on myself by listening to
    an originalish writing/recording of that and others(10+ yrs old now)
    hah and there was some stuff in there I do wanna keep
    maybe just a followup? I dunno, hah, good times 😀

    this list of 127 just too daunting! hahaha still cracks me up, great job on the few I have heard! 😉

  • @sheslin 3 weeks

    Elizabeth - thank you so much for listening to my songs and the very specific feedback you give. It makes me so happy when someone likes one of my songs, but I am overjoyed when they express exactly what they liked because it helps me greatly. So thanks for taking the time to listen and to give me such great feedback!!

  • @tamsnumber4  3 weeks

  • @aneil 4 weeks

    Thx for busting that song .... and that idea well sometimes I think the radio has become an Algorithm but I cling to the hope that passion and creativity will always have a place in the Human race

  • @kadmad202  4 weeks

    All I can say is Holy Cow, Liz! It took me forever to scroll through your song list. That's what a successful FAWM looks like! Congratulations😊. I really enjoyed writing music for your beautiful lyrics. Thanks for the opportunity, and maybe we can do it, again!

  • @sunnymae  4 weeks

    Hey Elizabeth
    Check your email 😮)
    I feel very lucky to have joined the ranks of devotees who clamor every year to write for Kahlo the Rockstar Lyric Goddess! You are so highly tuned in...just amazing. Cheers!

  • @iwilleatyou  4 weeks

  • @sw1n3flu  4 weeks

    Thanks for all of your comments. Gawd you’re nice xx

  • @karlsburg25  4 weeks

    Ah thank you Elizabeth ,
    And I remember seeing some of your lyrics two years ago and I actually did an instant hit record and play and sing demo but I lost it so I am so happy we were randomly collabed, but like you say , maybe not so random . The story just got to me straight away and the way you write them so rhythmically makes my job pretty easy ( when computers aren’t crashing 🤣. )
    Thank you again and yes let’s stay in touch maybe for kit of fawm collabs 😀

  • @berni1954  4 weeks

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Glad you liked my "last" song (Iberian Femme Fatale). I know that this behaviour is not unique to Iberia. But it was such a contrast with relationships I had had in Britain. There I can't remember a lass who just put me in her list of conquests and deliberately manipulated me into falling for her before casting me aside. One night stands and looking straight through you the next day had been more the British equivalent. 😜

    However, I bless Iberia for having given me my partner of the last 33 years 😊💜

  • @karlsburg25  4 weeks

    Oh my goodness I just uploaded!! I can't thank you enough for giving me such amazing lyrics to work with. I ended up creating a bit of a large production, then my Mac broke on me!! Woke up this morning and Phewee managed to finish it. I had to slightly change the order of the lyrics to fit the music but i was very careful to make sure it still flowed and was true to your story. I really hope you like it and once again thank you for making my last song an utter pleasure to work with. Yay x

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on “Waiting for the Supernova”! I really appreciate it. RE Dogs: To show you what a total nerd I am, “the Dogs” are the constellations Canis Major and Canis Minor (Orion’s hunting dogs). “The Bull” is the constellation Taurus.

    It's just a common cold. It'll be gone in a day or two, but I can't really sing effectively, which is annoying

    Oh believe me I could feel your connection to the River in my bones. That's why the lyrics spoke so loudly to me. It was such a visceral reaction as if I had been there a million times. I thank you for giving me the honor of paying homage to your Sacred Place. xxsunnymae

    95? Wow! Hey, I just wanted to thank you for all your comments. I've been writing up what I thought was a storm but now appears to be a dust devil compared to your tornado. And when I haven't been writing (or working!), I've been trying to listen to as much FAWM music as possible, so I haven't been getting back to everyone. Anyway, you're always a champion when it comes to leaving comments, so thank you! Enjoy the last week!

    Thank you for the kind words, Liz 😀 x

  • @sunnymae  6 weeks

    Hi Kahlo... you are too kind. I'm glad you enjoyed my "Second Chance" skirmish. For the first time I'm lacking concentration during FAWM, normally one of my favorite times of the year to write.
    I appreciate everyone's encouragement. 🤗

  • @fecknom  6 weeks

    They can go for it; that's fine! 😀 I'm still going to work something up - but it would definitely be cool to see what two different people come up with.

  • @johncrossman  6 weeks

    I should probably apologize for sticking you with my anti- song for you to merge with @izaakalexander's nice tune... but nah. As they used to say, 'Tis what 'tis!

  • @wacha  6 weeks

    Thank you for all the kind words on my songs. "The Better Parts of Me" ended up much different than I intended but I'm very happy with the results.

    I didn't think I'd get nearly as much done this year since I really can't record during the week but I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I've been able to get done on the weekends.

  • @sunnymae  6 weeks

    Hey Kahlo!
    So glad you enjoyed my wackadoo beat poet tune. 😮)
    I appreciate the listen.

  • @tiller2  6 weeks

    Hi Elizabeth, prolific as usual, you are! I had an idea for a lyric that I could never pull off. But you're good at this kind of topic 😀 "Shower Dance" about the awkward yet intimate choreography of two partners taking a shower together in a tight space, washing each others hair but basically just trying to get clean. Free idea and worth every penny.

  • @oaksnprairie  6 weeks

    Wow, you just pop those lyrics out! Thank you for your ideas on Pieces. I think I'm going to let it rest for now. Sometimes songs need space to grow.

  • @billwhite51 6 weeks

    thank you for our comments on the valentine songs. the self portrait one was inspired by a new film from france i think you might like, called Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

  • @siebass  6 weeks

    Happy to have the chance to make some good music with you. Glad you dug it, it turned out better than I had hoped.

  • @moonraccoon  6 weeks

    I may have to butt it into the queue to get it done today. I have 9 songs recorded ahead of it, that need editing before posting. *sigh* All these great lyrics that I can't resist!

    Hey, I was having trouble finding the Madison area FAWMers FB page. Does it just go by that name?

  • @ceilidh  6 weeks

    Thanks for the feedback on By Candlelight as well as Spinning Fire! Now that I've wrestled with the Garage Band drummer, the danger is I overuse it on future songs...

  • @pearlmanhattan  6 weeks

    I'm so glad you liked my setting of Only Lonely Life - yes, add it to the existing for sure, and you can post it in updated demos and the random collab thread if you are up to it, or I can if you like. I felt a lot of this song. I've been in two marriages like this - and it's why I'm single - the lyrics are very relatable for sure. Hugs to you, great collab!! 😀
