Artist Bio

UPDATE: I'm going to have to stop FAWMing. I'm just too tired, mentally, and I'm busy doing a musical. I don't want to torture myself with deadlines, which I've been doing since September. I'm sorry, I'm really, really tired. Good luck to all of you!

************
Oh, man. Here we go again. I haven't planned anything for FAWM this year. I just finished the nerdcorevpc.com competition as a producer and it really, really wore me out. I'm pretty fucking tired.

I suppose I should try to FAWM at least a little. I was thinking of making a chillout album/electronica thingy. I love writing musicals, but I kill myself every time. Plus, I'm in rehearsals for a musical that will be performed in May, so there's that, too.

Life has gotten significantly busier since last FAWM. I've performed at unofficial showcases at SXSW 2019, made lots of Nerdcore friends, done collabs, released an EP called "Tears For Keanu", rehearsed and performed in a musical, "Kiss Me, Kate" in the Brussels Light Opera Company, and completed a competition a couple days ago in which I came in 2nd place by a fraction of a point. Everyone keeps telling me I was robbed hahahaha! I've been going hard since June and I've only been able to breathe right now.

So, yeah, I'll try to take it easy this year. Unless I feel like torturing myself. Which may happen. I don't know. All I know is that I love making music and I love this community.

Happy FAWM 2020, bitches!

    Hey, seen your profile update. Totally get it, and sometimes stopping rather than trying to battle on is the bravest and hardest choice to make. I’ve been so inspired by your musicals the last two years (since I joined) and I’m finally writing my own this year. V diff subject matter and v diff production level, ha ha, but that’s fawm! Break a leg in your May performance! πŸ‘πŸΌ

    you deserve to have been busy!
    have a good chill-out one then, unless you don't, in which case we'll be your guest

  • @kovbleu  Feb 3

    Well - girl - you have been so busy! Take it easy this year and have some crazy fun. Your musicals are so epic I know they have to be incredibly draining. Congrats on all of your events and recent competition (stupid fractions).

    Breathe. Make whatever comes to you. It'll be amazing, because you are!
