Influences: I guess I have a sort of Sara Berailles sound, although I listen to a lot of musicians that play in a different style than I do. I think my biggest two influences are Mitski and St. Vincent.
I'm a 17 year old songwriter which means my participation in this is highly dependent on how much homework I'm getting. Hoping to make it to 14! (she/her)
(2/15) To whoever donated to FAWM on my behalf, I am extremely honored. Thank you for supporting this wonderful community, and for thinking enough of me to do so in my name. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your kindness and generousity

Thank you so much for your lovely comment! It's so easy to write sad songs forever - wishing you more luck with happy songs than my ADHD ass had! 😀
Hi thanks for visiting the song - I'm just waiting for the track to upload it wd be great if you wanted to pop back and hear it then!
Thank you for your kind comments on "The Morning Mist". Very much appreciated!
Thanks for commenting! So nice that I found you 😀 Thank you for sharing your songs!
Thank you so much for listening to Black Mary. I appreciate the feedback. I'm looking forward to listening to your songs too. PS I also love St. Vincent... she's a real guitar hero!
Thanks for appreciating My Mitey Demodex. Your compliment was so huge, and completely unexpected for what I thought was a hard-to-listen-to song.
Hello, I just wanted to say thanks for commenting on my song Nothing To Say. I don't take FAWM serious or I'll get stress. Today was "what on your mind" and my response is nothing to say...lol. Next time though I'll try to create a story. I liked your Being Female song, it's cool.
(Thanks for the comment on the Silly Love Song.BTW, which brought me here). Yes, there is a sort of SB sound, perhaps because at present you have a similar voice and there's a similarity in the unusual fits of lyrics to music, not straightforward (nor boring). But don't let comparisons concern you. What I've listend to points ot all sorts of goodies for the future. Do what you can in FAWM, and think about keeping with this community in 5090 too.
Thank you so much for your comments on Blood Wolf Moon! I am so relieved to finally get at least one song recorded! I am so happy you enjoyed it. I'll try to come back for a listen on the weekend 😀
Thank you for your kind comment. I actually was trying to write some awe-inspiring music for TV or movies, and so tried to think of what might inspire awe. My husband said for him it was seeing the photo Earthrise for the first time. I had to agree. That is an awesome photo. Thanks again. I appreciate your comment. 😀
Much for listening and commenting on my song ‘Slip between the cracks ‘. I appreciate it . Thankyou
OH THANK YOU SO MUCH
for you lovely comments on my lyric
bridge over brooklyn
means a lot thank you
Thank you for you lovely comments on 'I fly' - colleen did a fab job on it, her melody was beautiful 😀
thanks for your amazing (and hilarious) comment on my Bra Off Time song. 😀
Thanks for the comments on my song 'Bridges'!
Also, seriously... 17?! Wow, you have a bright future. 😀
First off - thanks for checking out the song I just posted. I really appreciate you taking the time. It was fun to put together, uh, kind of. 😀
Second, I love your style. Great songs so far and a strong style. You don't sound like her, but you might appreciate PJ Harvey's early stuff. My favorites are her first two Dry and Rid of Me, but she put out the demos for Rid of Me and that's what your stuff (kind of) reminded me of, only in the vocal/guitar aspect, plus really good songs. Check it out, if you have not before:
Looking forward to coming back for more!
Thanks for your comments on "Pop My Socks". The song structure and most of the tracks were compiled on the phone with Logic for rearrangement and adding a few more instruments...yes, amazing what you can do with these devices. Thanks again.
Wild precious life chorus concept demo is up if you want a listen. Thx for your interest
Thanks so much for listening and the kind words on my songs . I really appreciate it . Thankyou .
You’re only 17?!!!!! Wow! You are so talented! I hope you are submitting a college application to Berklee College of Music or other music programs. You’ve got some serious skills!
Thank you for your comment on "Quicksilver Flame." I've always loved the story of the Snow Queen but the part about the Devil's mirror is almost always left out and we only hear the story of Kai and Gerda.
Thanks for your comment and making me happy! 😀
I think I got the timing, thanks 😀 I'll upload the song tomorrow and you can let me know then if its wrong.
Thanks so much for the vocal track. It sounds amazing. Could you send me a short clip of you singing along to the song so i know how it syncs up with the instrumental?
Thank you for the listen and comments on Maybe!!! Much appreciated 😉
You could do that, or you might want to add it as a new song for more people to see it. Its up to you.
It would be perfect if you could sing for my song 😀 If you ever want to collab I'm up for it. By the way your song is VERY nearly finished just some final touches and I'll send you it tomorrow 😀
Merci for your kind comment and i wish you a great FAWM !
Howdy. Exquisite Corpses are a truly fun, awesome and amazing part of FAWM. I'm addicted to them. Thanks for listening!
Great! It should be finished by at least Tuesday evening (or I guess just Tuesday for you) 😀
Okay here's a WIP instrumental for you to sing over. If you could send me isolated vocal tracks (with the harmonies recorded separately if possible) that would be great. I also added and extended some sections so sorry if its hard to find each part 😀 https://soundcloud.com/ciaransaw2018/...
That’s cool about the harmonies. I might have to try that.
Great! I'll get started and send you something soon to sing over.
Thanks a lot for your kind comment on my first song ! It's really motivating for this month. 😁
Little black dress has a great and catchy melody. It all flows really well together.
Thanks Sky. Loved your comments on my song "On the Threshold of the Void". I'm away this weekend, (NO INTERNET. CAN U IMAGINE?) but I'll definitely come and give your output a listen when I get back. I remember being seventeen.... I hated it.. I was always falling in love with the wrong person and missing those who had a crush on me. Hey, now there's material for a song 😀
Thank youuuuu for listening Skyler!!
Thanks for the comments and wish you a musically eventful February!
Thx for your comment on wild precious life you right i have been singing the rhythm into my phone bass line and all dying for time with my instruments happy fawm!
Thank you so much for your kind words on Burn the town down and my vox <3
YES St. Vincent.. Hope we can collab again this year!
Hello again. Will you be back this year for another round of FAWM fun and madness?
