Influences: Anything that makes me laugh, cry, or feel anything....and my 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.
Last summer I discovered a new passion. I started painting dot mandalas.
I am looking forward to connecting with old friends and making new ones.
I hope to be productive in both, as paint has to dry in between:)
I will show up Feb 1, tabula rasa and see what happens!

Hi Sherry, I thank you for your thoughts on 'Not Broken' and for your caring thoughts just for me. I'm pretty pleased with the way things developed for me this time, and letting it be very different was both uncomfortable and eventually kind of freeing. I'm sorry I haven't listened near enough yet; I seem to have a part-time job (mainlining MSNBC) on top of my full-time job, so it's been a struggle to create as much as I want and also take in all the treasures around us here! Not dead yet, though!
I'm so glad you got a kick out of my Whimsical wackadoo bad hombres! I had so much fun doing that and it was great to get out of my system. Thank G-d for music or I don't know how else I'd have been dealing these last few years!
Solid is good... Congrats on your solid FAWM!
Hi there! If you want to find my music stuff on Facebook you can look for Santa Dharma or my solo page Holly Lanasolyluna. Thanks so much for all your sweet comments. I'm sorry I'm so behind with listening. Work and life have been hectic.
Yes, I’m also pleased! It is nice to connect with you!
OK, I'm jumping into the conversation - I felt like i didn't get a chance to have the same kind of conversations I had in past years (and missed it), but it was mostly my own fault because I just went insane with my writing. Same deal as Rob, I wrote a ton of songs, listened to a ton of songs, commented on a ton of songs and participated in the forums a ton. But, whenever I have a song idea I generally try to go with it and don't stop the flow, and that just kept happening. I have more and more people I want to collaborate with each year (and yes, you are on my list!!), and I just couldn't get to everyone this year and complete the crazy ideas for experiments I had as well. It was a different year for connecting, but still a great year. I always love you music and also love the conversations, so I'll need to try to balance that more next year. Of course luckily, we can always continue to catch up the rest of the year. 😀
Yeah, isn’t that a strange feeling?!? This almost felt like a transitional year with some fading and others rising. I was completely “in” and pretty much did what I always do....14 + songs, collabs, some challenges, 300 comments.....but still a strange year. Same for you?
Thanks a lot for your nice comments! It's really nice to hear a lot of creativity and jazz in your work!
Thank you so much for the kind words on Bosses song)
Congrats on the win, Sherry! Always a pleasure to get with you on a song. I hope you're around for 50/90.
Yes, my shed thing was intentionally riffing on Come On In My Kitchen. Glad it was recognizable. 😀
Thanks for the listen and comment on my shed song!
Thanks for listening and commenting on Geometry. Much appreciated.
Thank you so much for your many comments, Sherry! I will be sticking around to listen and comment; it's been harder to carve out the time during February this year.
'Here on my own' was kind of a composite experience. I lost my mom last March, but lost her much more so in the five years of her dementia leading up to it, so her death was in some ways just another increment, a quiet loss. So it's been a process of having remembrances of her as she used to be now arise, and she's not here, but I'm more 'with' her than I was able to be while she was here and incapacitated. I've lost two pets since then also, one of which was in fact recent. But it's about the missing, the fondness, the remembering, and the odd aloneness of continuing on, even while we're all marching the same direction, so there's a dash of midlife angst thrown in. And maybe a bit of midlife wisdom.
Hi there! Glad you liked it. There was so much that I wanted to do, but of course I was running out of time. Perhaps we can clean it up some more down the line, but thanks again for the collab. I'll be back for commenting but right now I really need to rest! Thanks again, hon!
HA! Is phone sex even still around?? I figure nowadays it's text sex.
thanks- will definitely check out your stuff! , just been busy as you can see writing a whole bunch! thanks again!
~Hey Sherry! Thanks so much for your comments 😀 I was scratching my head for ages thinking 'Pete.. Pete...?' Hahahah Ad had to tell me who you meant (we just call him iwilleatyou in my house) 😝
I look forward to lending your music my ears now that I have no more writing to do 😁
Hiya Sherry, I'm really sorry but I've got absolutely nothing left in me. I'm pretty frazzled, both mentally and physically. I was talking to Lyns about it last night. I don't think it's from doing the music / FAWM stuff, not sure if I'm coming down with something. Sorry to let you down, but when I was trying to write something yesterday and the chords were blurring and I couldn't even tell what I was doing, I decided that I was done with writing and recording for a few days. Hope all is good with you.
I sent you the MP3 mix via email you can post it here at FAWM
Thanks for listening... yes that was me singing. Three songs this year so far, actually, and I try to sing a few every year for my dad's lyrics. My first year was all songs that I sang. I prefer doing music, but every once in a while..... 😀
Sherry, definitely. Let's do it! I'm a big fan of your voice.
Sherry! I just told Lyns how ace your punk song is. She wants to listen to it later this evening. Love it!
Sherry did you get the song links? (email) Did they work?
Thanks for reading so deeply into my song about Hats, Sherry! I appreciate you taking some actual time with it and I'm looking forward to hearing your creations!
Ha! Thanks Sherry. Cwtch is a Welsh word meaning 'cuddle' or 'hug'.
Hi there! I already have someone working on a female vocal for that track, but thanks for considering doing it!
As we're both simultaneously awake,ref collab, sherry did you get the second link? the original one totally lacked the backing!! do you want sheet music? (lead sheets, pdf)
Thank you for being so encouraging!
Thank you so much for your comment on Barnyard Jig! I'm working with someone now, hopefully we'll have an updated version soon!
Hi Sherry, thanks for your thoughts about Never Settle. I'm glad to hear it resonated with you. If you were to have any interest in bringing it to life musically, I'd be all for it... I don't see myself making a demo, so if it speaks to you, feel free! If not, no worries of course.
Thanks Sherry, for stopping by. And absolutely if you see a lyric you like, I would be honored to have you put music to it!
Oh, interesting. They sound rather authentic. Good work mixing them in then.
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Vagrant Sea", I really appreciate it!!
Looks like I'm having some kind of email server issue. It says it hasn't been able to connect since early this afternoon. Try send it to valcoxmusic at yahoo instead.
Hey Sherry. When did you send that email? I don't see it in my box.
Hey thanks for the mention in the recommended thread Sherry. Appreciate it.
Sherri, thanks for your comment on "No More Money". The major chord at the end was an accident. I didn't even notice until you and someone else did. As you may know, that would be a Picardy Third. Thanks for listening.
How are you with Reggae? I sent you an email, with the details
Well aaaaaaaalrighty then! I'll get to work and get back to you. Give me a few days. Merci. 😀
Hi Sherry, I'm a bit late but I made it. Glad to see you.
Hi Sherry, Thanks for your comments. 😊
I’ve moved to Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico. It’s a small artists community, previously more of a fishing village, in the Lakeside area right on Lake Chapala, about a 46 minute drive from Guadalajara. Wonderful weather, friendly people, beautiful flowers and color and music everywhere. I’m loving it!
Thanks for your comments on Too Much Junk. Amazon Prime is one of my primary junk, I mean stuff I can't live without, sources too LOL.
Hi Sherry. Happy FAWMing to you too. 😀
Collaboration mandatory. This time....YOU sing 😉
Hellooo Sherry! Enjoy FAWM!
Sherry! You are a brilliant and beautiful person and musician. Glad to be in your company for the next few weeks!
Hi Sherry, nice to see you back looking forward to some sweet Django inspired tunes!
Hey Sherry, I'm glad to see you're back. Have a great month. I'm looking forward to hearing what the muses bring you.
Hi Sherry! Looking forward to hearing those great pipes of yours on some new songs!
Yep...here we go again. I have NO idea what my muses have in store for me this year, but I'm just showin' up! xxS
Great to hear from you! We CAN get out the door, but with the negative wind chill temps, we aren't interested in even opening the door.
See you later, sweets.
Hiya Sherry - Happy Fawming!
