Artist Bio

Influences:   Anything that makes me laugh, cry, or feel anything....and my FAWMily!

I am a little late to the party this year.
I have not been feeling music until FAWM started.
Besides Covid, health stuff, etc, I thought I had nothing left to say and I was ok about it. I have been doing dotted Mandala Art and have really gotten into it.
Then Feb 1,my body and soul reminded me
it was time for FAWM.
So glad to be here for my 13th FAWM
Looking forward to reconnecting and making new FAWMily

My music is mostly bluesy-jazzy, with some Django thrown in. I like to mix it up with a little comedy now and then

Love collabs and skirmishes.
**UPDATE February 27th **
After having a good start here in my 13th year, I got Carotid artery surgery on the 9th and figured i would be recording by Valentine's day.
Just a few days ago my singing voice started coming back.
Miraculously I got to end FAWM in a joyous song.
I wish I could have had the whole experience, but happy that I participated.
I will be listening to more of the great music I had listened to pre surgery. I love FAWM

    Thanks for listening to my song "Blue Snow", I appreciate it!

  • @lanasolyluna 7 weeks

    Thanks so much Sherry. Hope you’ve recovered!

    So glad you enjoyed "I'm Leaving" with @cynthiawolff Those vocal effect were so cool and that was Cynthia singing! She ran with this one. I was happy to supply the lyrics for her. I did that twice this FAWM and it's liberating and exciting to see what someone else comes up with. xxos

    Hi Sherry.
    Thanks so much for your visit and sweet comment..
    I hope you are doing well and continue to get better with each day..

  • @sunnymae  8 weeks

    My Sister!!!!
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful journey with me. I went all the way there and that final piece, when you became one with your ancestor repeating a ritual that was based purely on the elements at hand..a primal revelation indeed. So glad you enjoyed Timeless Time. That's exactly what I was going for!

  • @beat  Mar 12

    Thx for taking your time to listen and to write. I appreciate your comment.

  • @jonmeta  Mar 11

    Sherry, thanks for listening to so many of my songs! I appreciate your thoughtful comments. I hope you are continuing to improve. My best wishes and a (virtual) hug for a complete recovery.

  • @wobbiewobbit  Mar 8

    no way! i must leave forgettable comments i am sure. i have definitely heard you over the years and it is a pleasure to do so again

  • @bradbrubaker  Mar 8

    Just listened to Twisted. Thanks for the rec!

  • @rockstarsmd  Mar 8

    Thanks for your ebullient comments, @sherrycanary ... they made my day!

  • @kahlo2013 Mar 8

    Thanks, Sherry, for your kind comments today and for checking out some of my songs, I truly appreciate it and hope you are doing well!

  • @kathym  Mar 8

    I'm still catching up on sending thank you notes for your having stopped by my song "When it Snows". I am so touched by the support and comments this song has gotten. I played this at a zoom open mic even though it's not quite polished and it was well received. I will be back in touch if I get the demo up in case anyone is around to listen. Your time and support mean so much to me and I really appreciate your having taken time for me, Sherry!

  • @gm7  Mar 7

    Thx so much for listen to not one, but three of my kind.
    appreciate it.

  • @oswlek Mar 7

    Thank you so much for your generous comment on "Candles", Sherry. Yes, those verses are tricky. You'd think I'd just write something a little easier to deliver, but that's what fell out so I ran with it. 😄

  • @cindyrella  Mar 6

    Thanks for your comments!

  • @tamsnumber4  Mar 6

    I didn't know "GORGEOUS" until I met you girl....Thanks for that, you are something special!!!

  • @tamsnumber4  Mar 5

    Thanks for listening to my songs "Start Walking in Your Dreams" and "Amelia", I appreciate it!!

  • @matthew62  Mar 4

    Thanks for your kind comments regarding lover's lamp and leaving normal. Also, I hope you're healing well.

  • @iwilleatyou Mar 2

    Thanks Sherry! Another FAWM completed! We'll see if I get to 2022. I may take a year off so maybe 2023. Or 5150.

  • @hummingbear  Mar 2

    Hi Sherry! I didn't know about the surgery, but read your update. Glad you're better! A friend had what I think was the same surgery, expected it to go smoothly, but had voice problems for several weeks. They completely resolved, it was just a bit of a detour. Wishing you a full recovery too!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 28

    Hi Sherry! So sorry, I didn't know you'd had surgery. I hope your recovery goes as smoothly as possible. Thank you for the message. Yeah, I've posted quite a bit of stuff, but a lot of it (especially what I've done in the last couple of weeks) is just experimental messing around, 'cause I've felt pretty rough, both physically and mentally (and it's come to light that I may have been living with Asperger's syndrome my whole life, but it went undiagnosed due to some of the other issues I have).
    But anyway, enough rambling about me. I wish you well. You know I love what you do, and love your incredibly soulful voice and songs. Much love. All the best ❤️

  • @barbara  Feb 28

    Hi Sherry! I'm so glad you made it back in time for the closing bell! We'll have March to reconnect. Regarding Black Orpheus, no... I am very Orpheus ignorant; just a Wikipedia synopsis understanding. Perhaps I can dig it up on the internet? Meanwhile, wishing you an excellent continuing recovery!!

  • @sunnymae  Feb 28

    You made a great comeback you Diva you!! So great to hear you singing that last tune. Enjoy listening and catching up with friends. We're all still here. Probably will be going strong in the forums at least through March. Luv ya... xxsonya

  • @oddbod  Feb 24

    Hi Sherry - are you still about and are you up for a bit of a challenge?

  • @sunnymae  Feb 18

    Wow Sherry...thank you. 😀 There's nothing nicer than being acknowledged by a fellow friend and peer. I'm so glad you stopped by for a listen. Keep getting better. You have so much love from this wacky group of ours. I wouldn't trade the world for FAWM February...well maybe a houseboat in the Greek Isles, but there'd always be the internet. xoxos

  • @wolfkier Feb 18

    Thank you. Hoping that made you feel a little better, my friend. 😀

  • @wolfkier Feb 17

    I saw that you were in hospital and need a bit of Valentine's tuneage.
    I hope you're feeling better and will be back posting soon.
    Here's a little datenite moment for you. Hope you enjoy.

  • @oddbod  Feb 9

    Hey Sherry it's a pleasure listening to you. If I can squeeze in something with you that would be good.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 9

    All the best for tomorrow Sherry. I have looked at A Dream of Destiny and would like to try, btu I'm behind the eight ball until the last week. Is that okay by you?

  • @oddbod  Feb 9

    Hey Sherry - sorry things are a little hectic with collabs - I got a big "to do" list so listening was partly taking a back seat.

  • @hoppiern  Feb 9

    Sending you love and best wishes - hope you like your song 😀

  • @sunnymae  Feb 9

    Hey Sherry I know you're going in tomorrow. Sending you lots of healing light for swift and successful surgery. You got this and we got you! Going to check out your Twist on twisted.💜💜

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 8

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. Would love your thoughts on our other songs if you have time 😊

  • @cts  Feb 8

    Things for swinging by for a listen, Sherry.

  • @goldarrow  Feb 8

    Hi Sherry, welcome back! Enjoy the month, I am sure you have way more to give us! You are off to a great start!

  • @goldarrow  Feb 8

    Hi Sherry, welcome back! Enjoy the month, I am sure you have way more to give us! You are off to a great start!

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 7

    Hi Sherry, that will be awesome. Thank you so much. I'm looking forward to collaborating with you. Please pm me if you would like I can send you my MP3 or wav file.

  • @jonmeta  Feb 7

    I think I’ve got something! A bit more uptempo swing this time. I’m taking a break right now and then will send you a scratch track with the melody I have, and one with just chords so you modify the melody as you wish. Range is F below Mid C to F above with a lot of the melody centering around the D. I’ll probably send a second chords track transposed a whole step down so you can choose what feels better. Or anywhere else you want so it fits your voice. Will try to get it to you in the next couple hours at your gmail, so you have Sunday evening to work on it.

  • @the3queens  Feb 7

    Thanks Sherry! Likewise, I know from FB you've had your share of difficulties this year. May we get a break this year!

  • @jonmeta  Feb 6

    Sherry, thanks for such encouraging comments. You’re really sweet. I’m sorry about the surgery thing but hopefully the end result will be worth it and you’ll be even stronger after recovery. I will sit down at the piano tomorrow and maybe what starts as noodling will take on a life of its own and become something worth singing to. I’ll tell the Muse that it’s a medical emergency 😉

  • @barbara  Feb 5

    Hi Sherry! Welcome back, sister.
    Reading your liner notes, that “nothing left to say” feeling resonates. Or maybe it’s more like “I’m tired of saying *that*, and I don’t know what else there is.
    But, I fully expect to blossom forth at some point, cuz that’s what FAWM does! I’m happy you heeded the call to come...

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 5

    Either I'm drinking too much or your last post is reverse yoda talk. Wait, that would make it normal right? Nevermind. I'm getting a beer.

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 5

    Thanks for your comments on my songs. Yes, Bud light is the lowest of lows. Truth be told, it's Coors light that people drink around here.
    I am so glad you are here- and know you have lots more to say!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 5

    Heeeey! You're not doing anything *I* wouldn't do I hope.

  • @jonmeta  Feb 4

    Yay! Yeah, let's do it. I could do a couple instrumentals like last time, and send them. Are you happy workign that way? Or send me somethign in progress that you trust me with.

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 4

    great to see you back here! wouldn't be the same without you!!!! 😀

  • @sunnymae  Feb 4

    Hey Sherry! If you're here then the Tribe is whole! Glad you felt the invocation. I'm so glad FAWM has arrived.
    Lotsa music and good health flower child love comin' your way. xxs

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 1

    💖, hugs, and 🎵 being sent your way. Hope you are feeling better soon!!!

  • @cts  Jan 31

    Feel better. Feel good. Feel wonderful. All the good feels are being sent your way.

  • @klaus Jan 30

    Hi Sherry. Hope to see and hear you soon.

  • @jonmeta  Jan 29

    Hi Sherry! I hope to see you around here and maybe... another collab?

  • @cts  Jan 29

    Hi Sherry! Hope all is well with you. Are you back for more FAWMing? Shall we come up with more unique, sonic goodness?

  • @wolfkier Jan 26


  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 21

    Hey Sherry, I'm thinking of you girl!!

  • @oddbod  Jan 11

    Hey Sherry, hope you're back fighting fit for this year
