Ohio US   Feb 2011


Artist Bio

Influences:   mainstream jazz

ZeCoop's and Guatecoop's dad. Occasionally provide lyric ideas for them. 82 yr old with no musical talent other than buying instruments and paying for lessons for offspring. Retired. Have great marriage of more than 60 years to my high school sweetheart.

I first started writing lyrics in 2011 when I heard ZeCoop was going to do this crazy challenge, and I just kept writing more. I officially started participating and posting lyrics to FAWM in 2018 and have enjoyed the collaborations with the musicians, as well as the supportive and friendly community here. Would like to look into collaborations (lyrics from me - music from you) with others.

You can hear collaborations from previous years on my Bandcamp page:

    you better be! im looking forward to collabing next year. sorry i couldnt this year but was out in the wilds with no means to record.

  • @nancyrost  Feb 28

    Thank you so much. I would be delighted!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 28

    Glad you liked it. I liked the lyric a lot ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Feb 27

    On my to-do list for tonight! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @seemanski  Feb 27

    It has been added, hope you like it.

  • @seemanski  Feb 27

    Hi, I have completed my demo for green if you want to add me as a collaborator then I shall add it.

  • @srcoops Feb 26

    Once again, the FAWM month has been great fun for me. The kindness of comments from so many, the skillful collaborators, and the chance to have freedom to write about anything that comes to mind all combine for a highlight to my year. It is my hope that I will be able to do this again next year. If not, I have gathered a heaping portion of good times into this year. Thank you all!

  • @gordon  Feb 25

    Hello again! I couldn't resist and had a go at Look on the Right side. Hope you don't mind, I just really liked the positive lyrics.

  • @chipwithrow  Feb 24

    Looks like I'm not yet added as a collaborator for "Food." Go ahead and edit to add me when you can - looking forward to sharing the demo. Fun song to do - fit right in with my music.

  • @chipwithrow  Feb 24

    Add me as a collab on "Food" and I'll post the demo - banjo/guitar/vocal again!

  • @wacha  Feb 23

    Glad you like my take on "The Congressman", it was a pleasure working with you again.

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 23

    Thanks for the comments on the Family Farm. Mariemont, yep that's close by. I grew up in Anderson.

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 21

    @srcoops Received your note on the farm song. Thanks for the "clearance". I wrapped up the lyrics today...finally. I plan on recording it over the weekend. I think you'll like it.

  • @gordon  Feb 21

    I had a go, and it could be better, but it is what it is. (long day, misbehaving software, etc etc) Still, great lyrics and I enjoyed having a go.

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 21

    If @gordon whats a shot at Farm Boy, i say let him have it. Work and my personal life are keeping me pretty busy and I'm not spending the time on FAWM that I would like.

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 21

    Still working on My Dad's Old Farm, but honestly you probably won't recognize it. I've using it more as an inspiration and have pretty much completely rewritten it. For instance, it's now my grandad's farm.

  • @gordon  Feb 21

    I've got a very long day ahead, but i'll see if I can come up with something for Dream Girl. Watch this space....but not for a bit!

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 20

    Two friends - even cooler knowing it is a true story. Nice.

  • @roelvanveldt Feb 20

    Hey Mr Coops, I'm so sorry to keep you waiting for my music on the uninvited guest. Illness with me and my partner has delayed my contributions to FAWM. I promise though they will be ready by the end of the month at the latest.

    ยง Roel

  • @srcoops Feb 18

    I am at the stage of life where nothing is a sure thing. FAWM has been a great last minute thing to put in my life's bag. I hope to be around for next year but, if not, it has been great fun. Thank you all!

  • @gordon  Feb 17

    Just read your comment. Ha, ha, your lyrics make my music look good! Honestly, good lyrics are hard to come by, and you have a knack of writing lyrics which are easy to relate to and simply stated. For me the collaborations by people from all over the planet are what makes FAWM such fun!

  • @gordon  Feb 17

    Hello again! I hope you don't mind, but I had a go at Home. I just thought the lyrics needed to be sung, and as no one had done so yet....

  • @sapient  Feb 15

    Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€
    I wanted to do something that would take me out of my comfort zone, and rather like the idea of a calm song about rage.
    I'll get it posted!

  • @sapient  Feb 15

    How does this sound to you?
    http://files.fawmers.org/FAWM_2019/sa...
    It's a bit of a different one for me!

  • @sapient  Feb 12

    That looks like both encouragement for my thinking on the music for a new song (thanks!) and a fantastic life motto all rolled into one ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sapient  Feb 12

    Ah.. That's the sort of thing I like! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Can you give me a couple of days to work on it, then we can post it with the words and music together at the same time?

  • @sapient  Feb 12

    Hey there! I still have us marked for a song together before the month is out! I might try something a bit different this time, so will spend some time with your lyrics in the coming days to see what sparks...

  • @nancyrost  Feb 6

    Thank you, Mr. Coops! It looks like you're having an inspired FAWM so far - looking forward to catching up on more of your stuff.

  • @chipwithrow  Feb 5

    Yes, indeed - I'd love to put Old Friends to music! Don't add me as a collab just yet - I want to do guitar/vocal and then add banjo. It will take me a day or two to brush up on my picking.

  • @srcoops Feb 5

    I don't think I have posted this before

  • @ghostinyourpiano Feb 4

    Hullo! I'll certainly keep an eye out and see if anything really speaks to me ๐Ÿ˜

  • @gordon  Feb 4

    Hello again Scroops. I couldn't resist doing something with Shrinking world and hope you don't mind. The only thing I changed was to add the first line again at the end to sort of round things off a bit. Really nice lyric and I hope I have done it justice.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 4

    here's what I came up with for "Hate" -- if you like it, I'll post it officially.
    http://bythefont.com/alex/fawm2019/me...

    Let me know!

  • @nancyrost  Feb 4

    Eighth grade! That is wonderful! Really enjoyed working with your words, and so glad you like the music. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @timfatchen  Feb 3

    11?? I need to get my much younger (ha!) body and brain into action...

  • @nancyrost  Feb 2

    I have a different suggestion for co-writing: Can I send you some music for you to write lyrics to, then I'll record the vocal over that? It might take me a day or two to get to it. Let me know what you think.

  • @max  Feb 2

    Thanks. May that day be years away!

  • @roelvanveldt Feb 1

    Thanks for your quick response. Can't wait to record a nice rendition of "The Uninvited Guest"! Any preference for a musical genre?

    ยง Roel

  • @gordon  Feb 1

    There you are, see what you think. I just repeated a couple of verses from the beginning and sang the title at the end.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 1

    We gotta keep the geezers' end up!

  • @ghostinyourpiano Jan 29

    Hullo! I'd love to work with some of your words! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @chipwithrow  Jan 29

    Hi to you, too! OSU '88 here, wife '93. I'll be sure to check out your lyrics!

  • @nuj4x Jan 26

  • @gordon  Jan 21

    Looking forward to writing songs again, and also to see what you come up with in your lyrics. Not long to wait now...

  • @guatecoop  Jan 20

    Hey there, Dad! I am really looking forward to reading and hearing what you come up with this year. I would love to be able to put some music to your ideas this year. You are also hooked up with some great people around FAWM, so you should have a good year again. I would love for my wife to sing another of your songs this year, so keep them coming my way!

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 19

    Im on the road. But if i can i will try and do a collab again this year

  • @sapient  Jan 18

    Can't wait to see your lyrics again this year... Who knows what might happen! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • @sjbatavia  Jan 18

    Hey there SrCoops, I'm looking forward to it. Let's see if we can make a little music in 2019!

  • @toms  Jan 18

    Absolutely.

  • @wacha  Jan 16

    Hopefully we can collaborate again this year!

  • @nancyrost  Jan 16

    I'd like that!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 16

    Well, good sir, I hope we can make a couple songs together again this year!

  • @zecoop  Jan 15

    I know that you are ready to go... I hope this year is even more fun than past years! ๐Ÿ˜€
