.. it’s either a mess or magical or somewhere in between. the magic is usually you


the backdrop on me:
I'm not a musician, and I don't sing. I'm an artist of paint and words...probably inspired by you. I tend to reach states of euphoria when exploring forests and chasing sunsets.

I've been absolutely humbled and amazed at what the musicians here on fawm have come up with when breathing life into my lyrics. I've somehow stumbled into the graces of some talented musicians since starting fawm, that have made amazing demos out of the abstract stories in my head. It has encouraged me to keep pushing the limits in my writing and in my creativity pursuits. Thank you for that know who you are.

{{edit 6 Feb 2021: this past year has been a pretty rough one for me outside of the thing we’ve all gone through. I’ve realized after just a few days into fawm that I need to do things a little differently this year.

if we’ve not collab’d in the past and there’s a lyric of mine (you’re the best for even taking the time to read my junk) that you’re interested in putting music to, let me know and feel free to let me know a song of yours that might give me an idea of the treatment you’re thinking. there may be some lyrics that I write that I’m expecting nobody to want to put music to and it’s probably better that way and/or I’m just more comfortable with past fawm friends only doing. so please don’t be offended if I have to pass on your offer. I’m normally so much more open about it but apparently I’m a closed up clam right now. I hope that makes sense because nothing really does to me right now. it’s still better to come say hi so I get to meet you and hear your music because you might be right for another lyric I write or in the very least I’ll get to have your music floating around in my brain (the best part about fawm). please see remaining info about collabs below.

for those I’ve already worked with .. do your usual thing of letting me know what you’re interested in and we’ll go from there.}}

past collab info:
if any of my lyrics resonate with you and you want to put them to music...please let me know - and come say hi. : ) If a demo ends up being made, go ahead and post it and link me as the collab. If a demo has already been done by another musician, don't let that hold you back from doing your own. I know some may not agree with that. I feel like one musicians effort to create a song does not diminish the efforts of another with the same lyrics. that would be like saying I shouldn’t paint the stars because Van Gogh already did. Or, only Monet should have painted his love, Camille. But then we wouldn’t have the works that his buddies, Renoir and Manet, did of her.

As for making them available to the general public in any form (including YouTube videos)...that's discussed on an individual it stays here on FAWM unless otherwise discussed. : )

Also.. I'm no writing expert by any means.. but I get sad if my work is heavily rearranged or changed, especially the meaning. I understand that in order to fit the technicalities of music.. sometimes changing is what's if something isn't working.. let me know - lets work it together.

    Thanks for coming by to listen and I appreciate your fantastic comments and suggestions! No worries! 😀

  • @majordanby  Mar 10

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments on all of our tracks! I hadn’t checked in for a few days and it was a lovely surprise to see you’d taken the time to comment. Consider this effort as payment for the free tracks 😉

    I’ve got a new studio computer so we’ll start making some proper produced tracks soon. Loads of songs written last year to draw from so I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do!

  • @adforperu  Mar 8

    Aahh that listening sesh! thanks so much 😘

  • @judypie  Mar 8

    Haha no that’s cool, Ad did want to change it and asked I removed the reference to cats.. you know to make it more a universal message. I told him where to go! I’m keeping my punchline 😁

  • @fearlessflight2014  Mar 3

    Barbara Streisand?! Well that’s a first. 😀 she’s a pretty amazing singer so I’ll take it- thank you. And thanks for dropping by our song.

  • @johncrossman  Mar 2


  • @johncrossman  Mar 1

    Hello my friend. Look at that, coming on strong in the home stretch! I have a lot of commenting catch up I want to do, maybe I should be less wordy, like this! But I've been thinking we might have been on an every-other-year collab program (sorta?) and I neglected to pick up the baton. No excuses about a muddy period of my own (sounds like a fog inducing movie title and also a #sidehandedexcuse), but would you be open to an early March musicking of a lyric now that the dust is settling? If so, I have 2 thoughts.

  • @adforperu  Mar 1

    Congrats on storming FAWM! You certainly found your muse 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 28

    You truly ARE awesome. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    (I mean I am not ruling it out entirely... You're lyrics are so good.)

    (p.s. - I have a funny related story that I will e-mail you)

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    (And I'm not thinking about me, haha)

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    You know that I really want to hear your melody, right? And I would love to hear you sing it, speak it, whatever it. 😀

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 27

    It was so much fun! I'm glad you liked it and got surprised myself how it turned out to be. I just had my Double Muff distortion pedal going and couldn't help myself. Once I started it just moved on... and I really like the chorus. It was a pleasure singing that I tell ya! We might do something else again soon I think. Would like it for sure.
    Peace <3

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    Wow, those are awesome!!! It would be so fun to find a vocalist to try them out. I am sure it would be pretty epic. 😀

  • @pumpkinhead Feb 26

    I did it!

  • @zecoop  Feb 26

    Aw, thank you - I have been running myself ragged between work and FAWM, but having fun. I have read some of yours but have not had time to comment, but I *will*. You are so sweet. By the way, if you'd like to write lyrics to that one, please go for it and I could find someone to sing! I know yours would be epic.

    And yes, Karl did vocals for the other song. It is here:

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 23

    Cheers Sue!

  • @majordanby  Feb 23

    Aw thanks, Sue. I’ll check that out. Although not sleeping is a bit of a superpower during FAWM! 😉

    You’ve done loads too. I’ll try and catch up with your output soon.

  • @blueone  Feb 21

    Heya - just to let you know I've dropped you a message on Soundcloud about Shirley ave. Hope you enjoy 😁

  • @yam655  Feb 20

    Re: "Simple and black and white" My process is heavily influenced by improvisation. They sort of circle around the topic lightly before diving in. But some of it is just an outer shell, a part of the process that must be navigated in order to get to the juicy bits.

    In that case, you're probably right, I could probably just cut off the earlier section and focus more on the meat. That might help with some of my current problems with it. Probably no demo during FAWM. (Unless someone else wants to adapt it.)

    We'll see how things look in March. I am feeling at least two album releases this year, though.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 18

    Sorry. The lead singer from the 80s shtick was was too much fun.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 18


  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 15

    Sorry my language was a bit violent. I meant more that the lyrics cut through the bullsh@t’. Cut to the truth. I’m sorry, I’m racing round and listening and my comments are very spontaneous.

  • @blueone  Feb 14

    I feel honoured to be given the chance; I'll try my very best to do justice to it! It'll probably take me a week or so to have something ready, but I've already got some ideas bouncing around. I'll run it by you before uploading to FAWM to see if you're happy with it 😁

  • @blueone  Feb 14

    Hey - thank you so very much for your kind words today, and taking the time to go through my songs. It means a lot.

    If it's not taken already I'd love to collab on Shirley Ave if you're up for it?

  • @metalfoot  Feb 13

    I'm glad you liked them!!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 12

    I really hope I didn't offend you or overstep bounds by posting up two songs this morning.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 12

    hope you're OK with what I did for killing time

  • @johncrossman  Feb 11

    No worries about commenting, I'm flagging a bit at the moment and have been sporadic at it myself lately. Glad the fog has gone it's foggy way, and I hope it was never as dark as payne's grey. 😀

    On the rockingest song in my set, I had help simplifying my thought process and picking a musical style. My other option was to go upbeat bluegrassy. I like the result. Except for GarageBand drums, it's a jc creation, pretending to Fight some Foo (gee, maybe that's not the way to put it!).

    FAWM on!

  • @judypie  Feb 11

    Oh bless you Sue! Been taking a fawm break due to general stresses of life but I came back to check it and saw your comment (therapy session) haha. It’s so (Sue)awesome when you can write something that resonates with people so thank you for sharing your own thoughts and what’s been going on from your perspective! Maybe we could write a song yeah! I would love a Sueawesome collab since we’ve never done it before I’m just having a hard time focusing on music at the moment so probably can’t promise anything ❤️

  • @zecoop  Feb 10

    Got it... blah blah blah -> I love your voice. so there!

  • @websheldon  Feb 10

    Hiii - thanks so much for the comments! I read your notes on collabs - is it just the ones that say "lyrics only" that shouldn't have music?

  • @adforperu  Feb 7

    Thank you 😀 I have since edited in some liner notes to explain all

  • @adforperu  Feb 7

    Haha, you do! 😉

  • @pitt  Feb 5

    I gone and done it. 😀

  • @dragoonerzero Feb 4

    Thanks for helping a newbie out!

  • @vegansongs  Feb 4

    Hi Sue- I just and email re: Two truths and a lie.

  • @dragoonerzero Feb 4

    My take on Killing Time is up!

  • @sheslin  Feb 3

    Also check your email 😁!

  • @pitt  Feb 3

    Check your email 😀

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 2

    Hey Sue! I'll be back later to check out your lyrics. Having technical issues with my lappie I need to straighten out but dropping by to say hello.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2

    That would be awesome for future reference! Thanks for the offer. 😀

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 2

    Hi Sue, thanks for kind and motivational words. Look forward to digging your beautifully crafted story lyrics.

  • @pitt  Feb 2

    Hi friend! Thank you for listening to my song! I really hope we can rekindle our collaborative superpowers this year!

  • @zecoop  Feb 2

    😀 I'd never want you to beat it, Sue! Welcome back to FAWM!! So glad to see you here!

  • @majordanby  Feb 1

    Thanks for your kind words, Sue! Determined to get across the line this year!
    I hope your creative juices are flowing too!

    Sue Awesome is awesome!

  • @piney  Jan 31

    Hope you are well too. 😀 Wishing you a wonderful FAWM.

  • @judypie  Jan 31

    Hey beautiful lady! All good here, currently enjoying a lazy Sunday morning 😀
    Well Ad’s studio is on the ground floor and I record in the the studio on the top floor (which is also where my home office is). So I’m anticipating working all day, then setting up my studio and basically never leaving the room 😂

    We may occasionally meet in the kitchen for cups of tea I suppose 😁

  • @quork  Jan 31

    Great to see you back, Sue. Seeing your output - and what people do with it - is one of my annual FAWM highlights.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 30

    There's a rumor going about that 1) it's twenty-twenty-one and 2) creators will create here in Feb. Let there be some truth breathed into these rumors...

  • @quork  Jan 18

    Hi Sue, happy FAWMing.

  • @adforperu  Jan 10


  • @judypie  Jan 10

    How diddly do! 😀

  • @andygetch  Jan 10

    Hello Sue. I look forward to reading your wonderful lyrics this year 😀
