    Okay, I think I added you correctly. At first it kept putting the wrong song with other lyric.

  • @cindyrella  Mar 6

    Oh wow Marthie! How did you reach some of those notes!?

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 4

    thx Marthie. very nice . i will add you

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 3

    Love love love second wind band - makes me smile and can’t wait to play it for Marley, Larry, Peggy, Pat, Katherine, Doug, Abby and the rest of the band! We rehearse on Thursday!

  • @billwhite51 Mar 2

    you voice has such style and swagger, so much personality, on the song with arthur. ill have to wait until he adds you to leave a comment.

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 2

    Dear Marthie - wow! sleep and horizons are absolutely gorgeous and such a lovely surprise to wake up to! I think the link you left me with an idea for second wind band was not the correct link.

    Your music is absolutely gorgeous. Your keys vocals and melodies are gorgeous.

  • @billwhite51 Mar 2

    here are two of my favorites .
    what do you have?

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 2

    a bit confused on second wind? you sure it's my song? lyrics and story are nothing like mine.

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 2

    added you as collab and put link in!

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 2

    thx Marthie cold wind was outstanding! one of my favs we have done together!

  • @arthurrossi Mar 1

    Dear Marthie! You never stop to keep impressing me... How did you manage to create so many that beautiful, high-qualitative songs within such a short, limited time?! I LOVE all of them. Your piano, your voice and your ability always to find the right melody that conveys the mood of the words are amazing. Thank you soooooooo much for having given me this honor. If you have a chance, could you, please, send me the mp3s including "If I had one million women" on my email address, which is
    ? Thanks so much for all once again...

  • @cindyrella  Mar 1

    Sorry didn't see this in time but you are welcome to do any for whenever. Easter Lilles or Float Off on Cloud Nine

  • @arthurrossi Mar 1

    Hey Marthie! Here are a few lyrics that might be worth a look:

    And by the way, I replied your email regarding Austria a while ago, if I can do something, please, let me know...

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 1

    i have at least 2.

    i think the best for you is cold wind

    the second would be ironically second wind

  • @andyt13 Feb 28

    Wowsers, 33 songs! I thought I had a lot with 29! Good job!

    The Lost Child
    Lyric by Bill White
    Feb 27, 2020

    Let me put you on a golden pony
    And I will lead you up the trail
    Through the clouds onto a plateau
    Where you can see the sun again

    You were lost down in the jungle
    Swamp where crocodiles play
    With a snake your only bracelet
    And your crown a bird of prey

    Oh why were you the one to see
    Such a sad and frightening sight
    A lost child scared and choking
    On a piece of shattered light

    Now you have stopped crying
    The stars with sparkle on dried tears
    And I'll return to our father’s house
    Until you need my help again

  • @cindyrella  Feb 25

    Thank you so much!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 25

    Hi Marthie I wondered if you might have time for or

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 21

    How about "time for reflection" or " Through the Fog for collaboration.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 20

    i will give you a couple of names when I post them. thx

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 20

    I'm going to post a few lyrics over the next few days, see if any take your fancy. must try get our annual FAWM 50/90 collab 😀 .ps we have had a fair bit of rain.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 16

    Hi. Wanted to know if you maybe could do either my pink rose song or my Day After?

  • @cindyrella  Feb 10

    Hey there. I have to catch up with you! Was wondering you you might do the music for this one?

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 7

    I have the sense that neither one of us have down time and we thrive on staying crazy busy!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 7

    Wow! Marthie, that is stunningly gorgeous. Your timing, phrasing, and dynamics in both the piano and vocals are so exquisite and take the lyrics to such a new level conveying the feeling. I love how you express the words I write. I feel like you get inside my head and understand the nuances so well. A million thanks!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 4

    Marthie! I am so happy to see and particularly to *hear* you here! 😀 Thanks so very, very much for the wonderful song that you made of "If I had one million" women… It is simply amazing… The lovely melody and playing in combination with your gorgeous voice confer such an authentic, deep vulnerability to this song that I always keep wondering how you always manage to conjure up that deep emotions like these… Thank you so much...
