Stephen Wordsmith 0


Wellington NZ   Jul 2008  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Laudanum

Lyricist who drifts between gazing into the navel and the soul.

Pronouns: He/him
Preferred pronoun: You (I'd rather be talked to than about)
Constructive criticism: Welcomed

Collaboration policy:
My lyrics should not be assumed to be exclusive (too many excellent multiple takes). However, if you are not the first to claim a lyric, I recommend checking with the other FAWMer(s) that they're OK with you jumping on board. Similarly, you can quietly ask me if you want exclusive rights to do a demo for a song, and I will likely grant you that.


15 years! 15 years I've been drinking from this well of madness. My FAWM account is old enough to apply for a driver's license. Fortunately, I am yet to have a hit.

    Hi Stephen - I sent you a mail with a re-record of our collab from last year - not sure if you got it?

    Dang. I was wanting a sword with a witty inscription. I guess I'll settle for the superb lyric posts you're so well known for.... I guess. ;)

    Hello, Mr. Wordsmith. Or is it Swordsmith? I always get that confused.

    Regardless, I look forward to your endeavors.

    Hi! I've admired your work since I started FAWM not long ago. Happy FAWM time.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  4 days

    I like that rather be talked to than about.

    Looking forward to seeing what words you spin up this year, and possibly making one or two extra noise laden.

    You must come to Madison and visit WORT with me one day.

    Also, you and your spouse are my fashion icons!

  • @sapient  4 days

    Well, I'd not seen that one before - and I like it!
    My personal alt-favourite is Token Inert Wasp, which I'm saving up for if ever I need a 2nd FAWM account ;)
    Happy FAWMing!

    Yes! Let's do a tomfoolery! And a antics! And a shenanigans!
    (apologies, I still have no voice for our drunken bird friend. I have a stack of songs written that I'm unable to finish due to the reason I mentioned before).

    Making music to your lyrics was one highlight of my 5090 experience. Anticipating FAWM.

  • @sph  4 days

    Happy to read your new lyrics and get inspired. Have a wonderful month

  • @pearlmanhattan  4 days

    My dearest friend ave favorite writer, how delightful it is to see you. Happiest of FAWM to you.

  • @timfatchen  4 days

    My wife still pines for a quiet, uninteresting life. I point out that, at three score years and ten and a bit more, if it hasn't already happened, it's not going to. But I'm sure we can do something interesting in the FAWM sense, and not just in the endgame.

  • @dragondreams  4 days

    Oh mighty wordsmith. Could this year be the first year we actively collaborate. Maybe a spoken word piece?

    Hi again Stephen :) Can't wait to read all your wonderful thoughts and meanderings.

  • @w1n  4 days

    Hi Stephen
    Looking forward to making music with some of your words again, and as always spend years actually finishing a recording afterwards.
    Have a great FAWM

    So glad to see you here. I'm about to release a version of Step Forth on an EP. I can get you the file for your recording!

    That, and I'll probably see some wonderful you've written and have to take a crack at it again.

    Let us, my friend, write a song together. Or two. Or more.
