@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!

  • @nuerdetjuligen  Mar 25

    Thanks for all your very kind comments! And congratulations, dang girl, you hit the century club! nice job!

  • @rickamorphis  Mar 14

    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 Mar 10

    And “Dancing to a Different Drummer.” 😀

  • @sbs2018 Mar 10

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

  • @dzd  Mar 9

    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 Mar 9

    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  Mar 8

    Thanks for listening to my song "Bench by the Sea" and my collab "This Time", I really appreciate it!

  • @emkaydeebee  Mar 8

    Hey @kahlo2013 ! Thank you for your lovely comments on my songs, so kind of you to listen to a few! Nice selection you listened to too, thank you!

  • @bjunker  Mar 6

    Thanks for the nice comments on "If I forget you" & "Only For a Minute". It was a fun year, looking forward to 2021!

  • @sph  Mar 5

    Thank you for your ear and your words - in your lyrics as well as in your comments

  • @acousticmaddie  Mar 5

    Thank you for this years FAWM. I hopw we get a chanche to collab next time/Maddie

  • @aneil Mar 5

    Blow me over do you even sleep in February! What awesome work! Would really love to do a collaboration with you! Thx for your encouragement and input! Please give my album a listen if you have a chance

  • @aneil Mar 4

    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  Mar 3

    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  Mar 3

    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  Mar 1

    Only 127 songs?

  • @sw1n3flu  Mar 1

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

  • @karlsburg25  Mar 1

    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  Mar 1

    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  Mar 1

    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

  • @debs  Mar 1

    AHHHHHHH I DID IT!!! 🙃

  • @marthie Mar 1

    Any songs you want me to look at? Let me know...

  • @splittybooms  Mar 1

    Sorry I didn't get around to collab with you this FAWM.
    We'll get one during 50/90 hopefully!!

  • @matthew62  Mar 1

    Thanks for your kind comments regarding "thirst fish" and "so many faces". Much appreciated.

  • @johncrossman  Mar 1

    Sneak song attack! 😀 Here at the bittersweet end...

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 29

    120 great FAWM. thx for all your comments.

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 29

    hope you're not really crying 😞 - thanks for your comments xx

  • @judypie  Feb 29

    Thank you Elizabeth! I don’t think I ever saw a win quite as spectacular as yours! 😁

  • @janeg  Feb 29

    Thank you so very much for commenting on five of my songs! See you next year.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 29

    Only just started having finished the writing though 👍

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 29

    I think I may get it done 😵😵

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 29

    Hey there. I have a really good tune for the words you sent me but i may run out of time, but if its ok with you (if i don't get it done) i'd love to work on it after FAWM.

  • @sunnymae  Feb 29

    Awhh Kahlo.. so glad you caught a nice Buzz on my Firefly song!
    Posted at 3 a.m. and was so wired didn't fall asleep till 5! This sleepy head just woke up. 😊

  • @davewermers Feb 27

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 25

    Thank you for commenting on my songs "Erase Me" and "The Naked Eye", I appreciate it!

  • @bronnyd  Feb 25

    holy sh*t did you actually write 103 lyrics this month in not even 28 days yet???? I'm just hitting 10! wow still having a real blast with FAWM. Love your collabs and your lyrics are really good!!

  • @keithcuts  Feb 24

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 24

    Whatever you like. Go for it.

  • @sph  Feb 24

    Hi Liz, thanks for your nice words for "Coffee". As always I'm very much behind in commenting but this time also in making music 😏
    There comes a time...

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 24

  • @redlady8029  Feb 24

    I would appreciate rewriting lyrics with you. I can sing and play my songs. I need help with rhymes, flow word pictures.

  • @redlady8029  Feb 24

    Thank you for your wonderful comment. I am looking for someone to collaborate with--if you are open. I understand you may have other projects--songs your working on. Thanks again for understand and feeling what I was trying to convey in the lyrics.

  • @hoppiern  Feb 23

    Thanks so much for your comments on my songs!! I so appreciate you listening!! 😊

  • @scubed  Feb 23

    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.

  • @treble Feb 23

    Thanks so much for your kind comments on my skirmish song Waiting. I'm in awe of how productive you are! Way to go!

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 23

    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

  • @matthew62  Feb 23

    Wow! You're really churning again this year!
    Thank you for your kind comments on several of my songs. I truly appreciate it.

  • @standup  Feb 23

    Thanks for providing a theremin! And the great shot of Nancy!

  • @sunnymae  Feb 22

    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

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 22

    Thank you Liz for your beautiful comments!
    Nadia

  • @crisp1  Feb 22

    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!

  • @scubed  Feb 22

    Thanks so much for your kind words on “The Hummingbirds Return”!

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 22

    Thank you for listening to Office Supplies. Sometimes the list song is the best option!

  • @sunnymae  Feb 22

    Heehee...I thought you might like this one! Glad you enjoyed She's Back. i had fun singing it and throwing the kitchen sink in the mix. Clean up in March. Thanks Kahlo!

  • @sheslin Feb 22

    Thank you for your lovely comments on I Wish I Believed. I loved those lyrics and heard I song when I read them. I can't believe you have written over 90 songs - wow!!

  • @jamkar  Feb 21

    Thanks Liz! 😀

  • @redlady8029  Feb 21

    I see your open to collaborations. Would love to collaborate with you.

  • @davewermers Feb 21

    Thanks for listening to and commenting on "I'll Always Have Time for You".

  • @scubed  Feb 20

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on “Picture in a Frame”!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 19

    Thanks for your nice comments! Marthie never ceases to amaze me.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 19

    Thank you Liz. As always I prefer not to tell what my intention or meaning with a song is. This is becaourse I like to expereience all the different ways people cant interpret it 😀 Sorry <3

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 19

    Thank you for the kind words, Liz 😀 x

  • @sunnymae  Feb 18

    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  Feb 17

    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  Feb 17

    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!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 17

    Thank you Liz. For all the lovcely comments. And wow great work so far. I cant even come close to keep up with you. Superb work girl

  • @bitshred Feb 17

    Thank you so much for the listens and kind words Liz! Appreciate yah!

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comments on my songs, "Wash Me Clean" and "Insecure"!

  • @srcoops  Feb 16

    Thanks for your very kind comments on Loving Hands. She has been holding my hand for 65 years. Lucky me!

  • @berni1954  Feb 16

    My take on Emily's kitchen is up. Hope you like it. I was trying to capture the feeling of joy in the lyrics in my bouncy main melody.

  • @kadmad202  Feb 16

    So happy you like what I did with your beautiful Northern Lights Noel lyrics. Let's do this again sometime!

  • @treble Feb 16

    Thank you for your kind and supportive comments on my skirmish Sugar Song. I am so impressed by your productivity. Way to go!

  • @katmtl Feb 16

    Thank you for listening! I’m totally excited to take you back to the 1980’s! ❤️❤️

  • @ohleeoh Feb 16

    OK, thanks for letting me know.

  • @wacha  Feb 16

    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  Feb 16

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

  • @tiller2  Feb 15

    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  Feb 15

    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 Feb 15

    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  Feb 15

    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  Feb 14

    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!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 14

    Thanks for your nice comments Liz!

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 14

    Thanks for stopping by "Revive Me" Liz, your kind words are much appreciated! 😀

  • @berni1954  Feb 14

    So glad you like my setting of your "Wise Woman" 😘

  • @siebass  Feb 14

    Okay, I just finished the music for Mirror Mirror tonight. How do you want to be credited in the liner notes?

  • @dragondreams  Feb 13

    Thank you loads, Liz. 😀

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 13

    Can you add me to the collab so I can add the demo? 😀 thanks

  • @kevinmason  Feb 13

    Thanks! Not sure why that was so difficult 😀

  • @kevinmason  Feb 13

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

  • @ceilidh  Feb 13

    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  Feb 12

    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!! 😀
