Influences: 1960's folk, mostly. And almost anything in the filk community.
Middle aged mom. Casual amateur singer /songwriter, part of a folk band with my brother and teenaged kid. I write mostly lyrics and ask other people to do music for them, so if you do mostly music and want lyrics to work with, talk to me!
yes we got matched up on the random collaborations thread! let me know what lyrics i should use (i probably won't have time to start til tomorrow eve or later due to work)!
thanks for the message! (and I guess if you both wanted, your kid could send you an mp3 recording or something, in this age of technology- i actually recorded a friend of mine singing/talking over a skype call and used that for a collab we did where we were not able to meet, btw..)
Hi!! I'm excited to make a song with you 😀

Also: hi! Nice to have you here with us!
Welcome to FAWM!!! You will love it. <3
We're crazy, aren't we?
Welcome to FAWM! This is my second year here, but absolutely loved it last year! Hope you have a great one 😀
Hello! Pull up a chair, grab yourself a drink, silence your inner critic, relax, enjoy! 😊😎
If you are wanting to offer lyrics up for music, you'll find a couple of song tags that help: #needs-music and #lyrics-only will clue others in that you don't plan to add music yourself and you are willing to have a music collaborator for the song. This will make more sense in a couple of days when you can post some lyrics. Happy first year! I hope you have a blast!😀
Happy FAWMing! Starting on the first you will be able to post what you've created. I write lyrics too. I usually use tags like lyrics-only, needs-music, needs-collab to advertise that I want to work with someone. Some people also post to the forums.
Starting Friday there will be "skirmishes" - challenges to come up with a song in an hour based on a prompt. It's a fun game, look for those.
You'll get the hang of it! Have fun!
Welcome! Hope you love it here as much as we do. 😀
Hey! Welcome to FAWM and I hope you have a really positive experience here. If you have any questions about how FAWM works, post a note on my wall!
