    Thanks, Pearl! It was the perfect skirmish at the perfect time for me. I enjoyed doing that one.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 12

    Hey! Thanks so much for the great song you made for "A stranger gave me love tonight"! I Love the atmosphere you create with the music and with your fantastic performance here. Thanks so much for giving me this honour! Please, let me know if you like me to add you as collab or if you prefer to repost the song (or both). May I also ask you for a favour? Could you, please, send me the demo on my email address, which is
    ? Thanks so much once again! 😀

    Oh wow... Pearl... you amaze me with your incredible musical sensibility and sensitivity as you deliver this tyrics. I love the style and the strings that accentuate the melancholy and the Americana perspective. I was surprised that someone who commented on the lyrics said that this was normal. You capture that all too familiar loliness that some feel within a relationship. Would you like to post new so more may see/hear it or would you like me to add to the existing lyric. Happy to do so! Love this more than my words can express! So grateful!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 12

    Do either of these that I just wrote work, if not, no worries, I will write more!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 11

    Thanks Pearl! Will do!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 11

    Hi Pearl! I feel like I won the lottery with the opportunity to collab with you again. I am open to any ideas as long as you sing! I am about to catch a flight and will be on the road for work with just my iPhone for several days - I hope to write a lot of lyrics during my down time but won’t be able to do much with music. So if you have a topic/theme/genre you would like me to write some lyrics for so could do that ... alternatively if you send me music I could try to write lyrics for that. Or we could do-write a song via email across the miles writing the lyric together and the I could contribute some music to a track if you wanted. Writing lyrics and sending them to you would be easiest for me, but what would you like? Liz

    Ah, yes! Jobs and marriage. Haha. Thanks though, I really liked his setup and I was thinking about attempting a live stream songwrite/record of my own. ...yeesh. Sounds scary now that I say it aloud. 😁

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 10

    Hey! There was a guy on here maybe a few years ago who did love streams of song creation from start to finish— do you remember who that was? I seem to recall you being among those who participating and helped him write lyrics and such.

  • @kellyk Feb 10

    Thanks for the welcome!

  • @treble Feb 7

    Thank you so much for your comments on my skirmish song Rhymes with Orange. Glad it made you laugh. I would have felt bad if it made you cry. 😀

  • @jonmeta  Feb 7

    I went ahead and put up "Wet Socks" (placeholder title) bc, you know, FAWM. But ideally it should be in your key and you should sing it. If you like that idea, now or later, send me a key, up or down in relation to Ab (where it is now), and I'll give you a track so you can sing it. That's what I really want to hear!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 6

    Hey! I would look very forward to it! 😀

  • @kovbleu  Feb 3

    Thanks so much for your really nice comment on "This Promise." I truly appreciated the listen. 😀

  • @arthurrossi Feb 1

    Hey! I am so happy to see (and of course, to hear) you here again! Thanks a lot for your that kind words… I had to skip last year´s FAWM, and I missed it too much... I am looking very forward to your new songs, my friend!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 1


  • @kahlo2013  Feb 1

    I would love that!

  • @jonmeta  Jan 31

    We got paired!
    *Update* Would you like to start off by sending some lyrics? Doesn’t have to be a full song though. Then I’ll try some music and we can go back and forth. If you hear some music / melody with the words though, no worries. Send that too and I’ll add to / develop... It’s hard to predict the Muse! We can use email (I got yours).

  • @crutherford Jan 31

    I was looking through the fav songs of last year thread and listened to your snow pants song. What fun!

  • @tuneslayer2018  Jan 30

    Hey, nice to see you! IF it hadn't been for Easyshed in the favorite songs thread I might have gone with the Cute Little Pawprints.

    How ya doin'? Here's hopng for 14 1/2+ excellent songs.

  • @natrin Jan 20

    Hello, have a great FAWM! 😁

  • @kc5 Jan 20

    Hope to be checking out your music this FAWM. I always thought of you as a great lyricist!

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 19

    Looking forward to another year...

  • @timfatchen  Jan 18

    @pearlmanhattan send more chickens. I'm hungry.

  • @pfoo  Jan 18

    Hey - looking forward to some 4-track collabs with you. Have an awesome FAWM 😀

  • @hummingbear  Jan 15

    Wishing you your best-ever FAWM. I missed seeing your vlogmas this year; was under the weather and would have enjoyed more entertainment. Clearly your many talents were drawing you in other directions this year.

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    have the best FAWM this year!
