Artist Bio

Influences:   I am planning to focus on songs for Easter in this year’s FAWM. Let’s play, write and listen! Music with a melody- if it can't stand on it's own acapella I won't write it. Classical, folk, pop I guess.

3 Playlists I’m creating for FAWM this year:
1. Easter themed musical in Afrikaans) Hy Leef! Paasfees

2. Easter English songs

3. Psychology songs: pathology and academis facts(music helps me remember those AND it’s homework for the subject I’m taking) Psychology 3

The Fawm playlist is all the songs bunched together...FAWM 2019

#TheCherryFarmer #TheYearOfYes
I’m a mezzosoprano who likes to sing and play everything in C(you can check) and prefers low heels except Saturdays ... and then just for ten minutes.

Please subscribe to my youtube channel


I’m busy with a #SpotifyDrive😄🍒. You can support me by following the #WomanOnFire playlist please! Thank you🍒

See you on the other side of February!

    Just realised: i didn't thank you here for your suggestion on "Storm so bad" *91924 that I make a song of the liner notes. So I did: "Flying Tadpole's Travelling Blues Band" But I did thank you in the liner notes! (just tidying up the post-FAWM mess!)

  • @calumcarlyle  Mar 7

    Hi @marthie, you can hear all the fawm episodes I've done so far at thanks!

  • @aneil Mar 6

    Thanks again for your impact ifluence and assistance and 3rd FAWM writing together. May the cherry trees blossom and the harvest be plentiful.

  • @aneil Mar 4

    Thx for another great Fawm you may want to listen to my names Simon to add to the Easter repertoire

  • @cindyrella  Mar 1

    Thanks for our collaborations!

  • @calumcarlyle  Feb 28

    Hi Marthie, this is the one i mean:

  • @larryw Feb 27

    Thanks for the comments on "ironing" just a fun thing after someone used that phrase in a text exchange!!

  • @billwhite51 Feb 25

    that has possibilities. lets have the rest of it and ill see what comes

  • @billwhite51 Feb 25

    nothing lying around, but send a lyric to inspire me.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 22

    I thought you might like my song with Jeff.

  • @meadows  Feb 21

    @mathie Sorry, I somehow click on the "report abuse" link on one of your comments on my song by mistake. I just saw this, and I cannot take it back and I don't know the consequences. What shall I do?

  • @larryw Feb 20

    Hi do you want to have a go at this one?

    The Threads We Have Sewn

    Life is a tapestry of emotions
    Woven over many deep blue oceans
    With laughter, tears and fears
    We know they never can be broken

    Never can be broken


    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable
    The house we have built
    Is unshakable
    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable
    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable


    Tears fall around in patterns
    Sometimes it just has to happen
    We gotta smile all the while
    In the end love is what matters

    Love is what matters


    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable
    The house we have built
    Is unshakable
    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable
    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable


    Stronger than a spiders web
    In a house of granite
    Closer to my heart
    Than the furthest planet
    We can do this
    We really can
    We know we can

    The threads we have sewn
    Are unbreakable
    The house we have built
    Is unshakable
    The threads we have sewn

  • @larryw Feb 20

    Thanks for the comment on Butterflies, I now need to practice it!!

  • @larryw Feb 20

    I'll not tell you, because I keep it under my hat 😉 but give you a clue .... I like her!!

  • @larryw Feb 19

    Just a thought, do you have an MP3 of this I can use? just for my iPod if you do my email is

  • @larryw Feb 19

    Wow, love what you have done with For the Love - you have really captured the feeling is this song so well, I can hear this in a film, lets talk about where we can take this

  • @barbara  Feb 16

    Lol, That's so true.
    I just meant if you mention that FAWM is an online group to an outsider, they might assume ".com" and end up somewhere they might witness a bunch of "org"! It's a running joke around here.

  • @barbara  Feb 16

    Hi Marthie, thanks for reading 'Don't Call Me,' and for making an excellent point about referencing FAWM for outsiders. I think that could easily happen in the first line of the chorus. But then I should probably also mention "dot org!" for safety's sake, right?

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 12

    Thx Marthie, love what you did with nightiimes. Excellent

  • @igg Feb 11

    Yes of course Marthie! The professionals awaits your magic.....!

  • @timfatchen  Feb 9

    AlertAlert! marthie no sound on your easter #21 on YouTube!!

  • @mattblick  Feb 8

    Hey Marthie - Happy Easter!

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 8

    Adding music is a little more complicated sometimes, because of time and doing several projects at once, but I plan to do so. I have a lot more equipment, and want constructive criticism on my recordings, as I want to get better. I am always open to colaboration as well.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 7

    very welcome to have a go at night times are the lonliest if you wish. in fact i am mostly on lyrics only from now so take what you like- you always do a great job.

  • @igg Feb 7 have been a busy girl.... Nice to see you so active....Maybe we get to do something together this year?....

  • @timfatchen  Feb 7

    Ha! Marthie it's too early in the morning of tomorrow to listen carefully to a couple more of yours, but I loved your comment on "Storm So Bad" I had to share this with you. At the end of last century (!) I was one of the trolls on a seriously trollish sailing newsgroup. I trolled in verse, one such being a filk of the MajorGeneral's song (Pinafore). In which "I took the Bobsprit test and came out schizoid paranoiac". And I had, and I did, and I know it's not that far from the truth. I've just had a long time, and a loving partner, to find out how to control it. And one of the best ways to control it is to let it loose for some exercise where it won't damage me. And so... in the songs, and as a political gadfly, in letters to the editor of our national newspaper (I'm into the hundreds at this stage. They're just the published ones!) People think I'm just being funny/satirical! The rest, I leave to you!

  • @factorytale Feb 6

    Did you lose your children to an alcoholic violent man as well since you say you live the new beginnings in my horrible lyrics about the judge taking my children away dooming them to live with this monster?

  • @cindyrella  Feb 6

    Hey Marthie, here's a little Easter kids song.

  • @benjo  Feb 6

    Hey Marthie

    thank you thank you
    for your lovely words
    on my lyric
    ain't it always like that
    means so much coming from you


  • @cindyrella  Feb 6

    Ha ha-I don't think this is the right bunny song! 😀 But I will try to write one.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 5

    Thank you Marthie, I appreciate you taking time out to listen to other's' songs when you're so productive yourself! You're 8 for 5 now! Slow down!! 😉

  • @cindyrella  Feb 3

    Well, I started out with one idea of an Easter song, but this one came out instead. Not sure if it will work for what you want, but I wanted you to see it.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 1

    Hi, gorgeous! Excited to hear what comes out of the piano and that beautiful voice. 😀

  • @benjo  Feb 1

    Hey Marthie

    hope you're well and in good voice as always,
    looking forward to hearing your art again this year
    have lots of fun, hope we can connect again,


  • @audrey  Jan 31

    And happy FAWMing to you too Marthie. Hope you have a productive and fun time. I think I'm going to focus mainly on instrumental pieces this time, although I have one idea for starting a new set of lyrics, which I may also do.

  • @moonshadow Jan 30

    Welcome, Have great FAWM,

  • @dutch1967 Jan 30

    Hi Marthie! Thanks for the early welcome, this year promises to be a real rollercoaster. Remember: throw your arms up and just let the fawm train take you where it wants.

  • @hummingbear Jan 28

    Happy FAWM! Making Easter songs is a timely project, good luck!

  • @smiley Jan 26

  • @mikegtz  Jan 26

    Marthie, thanks for coming over to say Hi to me. I will subscribe to your You Tube channel and while I have heard of singing nuns, I haven't heard of many singing nurses. But I will be listening.

    Hey lovely lady. Sadly i won't be able to partake this year as am in Thailand with only phone technology, although some have pointed to a couple of suggestions so may attempt a couple of raw demo tunes. Can't wait to get on keeping tabs on your Easter theme though. Have an amazing time x

    Hey Marthie 😀 What an excellent topic! I may write a few on that topic myself!

  • @lvgd09  Jan 22

    Hi Marthie, I just subscribed to your YouTube channel. Listening to "Just As I Am", sounds great. The piano on this video is a bit too loud though as I can't make out the lyrics. Still, great job and I know I can learn a lot from you. I'll be watching.

  • @jamkar  Jan 22

    Hey Marthie! Easter is a perfect theme. Let's write something together!
