Out to make the world a better place, one song at a time. When not FAWMing, you can find me on an Internet near you at:

http://www.youtube.com/SocialKlyma (live streams on Feb 18 and March 4th)

I've been developing a show called ALL TOGETHER NOW. It's not your average 2-hour interactive musical variety show live stream. I'm always on the lookout for new musical guests.

This is my first FAWM. I've been in a CoViD-induced funk. I'm here to be inspired. My demos will all be acoustic-one-take on a Zoom H2 recorder. Lyrics and melody are paramount.

I'm open to collaboration and look forward to hearing a lot of great songs!

Cheers, all.

    Really enjoy your songs--thanks for the kind words on mine. I'm a fan!

    Thanks so much for your listen and comments on "This Is Home." I appreciate your feedback on which lyrics stood out. Hearing from right after I posted absolutely made my night. Thank you!

    Hey friends, my first FAWM collaboration is a song called "Promise," written with Phil Norman. Phil produced and recorded a cool demo of the song. Here's a link to a video of me playing it, just voice and piano: https://youtu.be/DFov0IRXtI4

    Hope ya dig it!

    Thank you once again for a lovely and detailed comment. I often spend a lot of time on word flow and various kinds of rhyme, so it's nice to know it's being picked out and appreciated! I hadn't thought about it before, but I agree that cello would be an excellent addition.

  • @themelgoexperience  Feb 18

    Thanks for your comments on my songs so far--I really appreciate the feedback! I'm very much enjoying listening to yours and think you're a fine guitar player, writer, and singer indeed.

  • @cleanshoes  Feb 18

    Whoa! Thank you so much for mentioning me in the recommended songs thread. I'm incredibly honored by your comments. Nice to make your acquaintance as well!

  • @midwayfair  Feb 17

    Whoa, I had no idea you were here, Greg! No wonder you've got like three albums every year 😀

  • @klyma Feb 17

    @metalfoot Right?! SO good. Here in February Album Writing Month, I try to focus all my commenting on writing, but man alive, she sings great. I love her voice and how she uses it. Her brilliant lyrics are lucky to have such an amazing delivery system at their disposal.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 17

    Just saw your post on the Recommended thread and thought I'd pop by to agree with every word you said about @cleanshoes -- an amazing talent.

  • @tjeff  Feb 17

    Thanks so much for your comment on my west wind song. Your point about "prairie" is well-taken, thanks! If I re-visit the song I will definitely be looking at that.

  • @cleanshoes  Feb 16

    Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comment on Boys Will Be Boys. Much appreciated!

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 14

    So happy you like our song. Thank you for your lovely feedback 😊

  • @klyma Feb 13

    @evinwolverton Great to hear from you! Just listened AGAIN to your fabulous song (and recommend everyone else go get some). I'm gonna try something and send it to you. 😀

  • @evinwolverton  Feb 13

    Thank you for your comment on End Of Illusion! I’m so glad you brought up the “end of the dream” tags not adding anything — I agree. Some form of repetition feels right there. Should it simply be “end of illusion” 2x? Or is a repeat even needed?

  • @klyma Feb 12

    Oh, cool. That means I did my job 😁

  • @themelgoexperience  Feb 12

    Also I’ve had your internet song stuck in my head the last couple of days

  • @themelgoexperience  Feb 12

    Thanks again for your kind comments on my songs. I sure do appreciate it!

  • @natalieedelson  Feb 11

  • @raygunnsraygun  Feb 11

    Hey Kylma, really enjoying your work that I've heard so far. Just to say I've subscribed to your YT channel so hopefully will catch some live streams in the future.

  • @robynmackenzie  Feb 11

    Thanks so much for the repeat listens and the recommendation for She Kills!

  • @prsongsmith  Feb 11
