Influences: whatever plants itself in the depths of my soul
t e n y e a r s
.. 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 privilege...you know who you are.
USE OF MY LYRICS: 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 is 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.
As for making them available to the general public in any form..that's discussed on an individual basis....so 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 needed..so if something isn't working.. let me know - lets work it together.

Thank you so much for everything you've said about my songs, Sue. Means the world. Lorelei is a rock in a river in Germany - the myth is that mermaids would sit on the cliffs above, combing their hair and looking tempting, and sailors would be distracted by their beauty and crash their boats into that rock.
Having said that though, I just googled it and the cliff is actually what is called Lorelei... the rocks in the water are just some dangerous rocks. So I guess that line doesn't work too well. 😝
I love that an acceptable excuse for eating a sandwich in a car at 2.30am is "it's summer" 😂 ooooo I have email!
Awesome sueawesome!!! Thank you for the ace comments. Yes, I believe I did record the answering lines separately on my Coventry song. It's something I do occasionally, when I have the words I want, but there just isn't enough of a gap for me to take a breath. Although sometimes I just do it because I like the effect. I think it may have been a bit of both in this case. Hope you're well <3
I need to delve into your lyrics now that I have a bit more time and breathing space. Maybe we can do one this year!
I seriously have to play catch up here. Just caught up with work and collabs but looking forward to reading more of your lyrics soon.
Hey, don't worry! Get yourself better, absolutely no rush or obligation to do anything, we're still good, yo (sorry, dunno why I'm talking like that)
No problem - get well soon
Hi Sue A. I hope you like this strummy version of Heliacal Rising. If you don't, let me know and it'll be history.
p.s. I am really looking forward to reading the rest of your lyrics. REALLY looking forward to it. 😀
I was *this* close to calling it that, but decided to cut the "thousand" part. How funny is that!! 😀
You don’t know how relieved that makes me! I was worried you’d think I took liberties and you’d hate it. It was such a pleasure to put your lyrics to music.
You're on a roll with cool band names. Death Growl Heroin 😀
Thanks for listening to all of my songs so far in FAWM! You are far too kind! 😀
Thank you Sue for taking the time to listen to my song, and for the nice comments.
Don't worry about the lyrics Sue, this year is all love songs and that one was about my best friend. That said I am a cat you know so cats speaking on the phone is just everyday business for me.
To work WITH 'em...
Ah sue, I'm so glad you were happy with what I did with your lyrics. You have such a beautiful poetic way & it's an honour to work work 'em. X
Thanks for your thoughts on "Suicide City." Unfortunately, I lost the original demo when my laptop was stolen. I had back-ups of most of my stuff, but that was one of the things I lost. 😞
I deny that you don't believe it.
Right then. Thanks. Allow me some time cuz I need to practise a lot in order to get this recorded in one take. Hope it all works out well. Bit nervous I am....
Hi Sue, wish you a happy FAWM. I'm a little busy getting a few things out of the way but I'll join the party in a couple of days.
I deny it :-p
Hiya Sue! Happy FAWM 2019!
Hi there, Light Chaser.
For kicks ... yay!
I would feel honored by any ink drawing or painting by @sueawesomeart That would be .....well... you know .... awesome! 😀 Have fun this FAWM. Here's hoping there will be some lyrics from you this year where I feel the urge to work with... you know.... for kicks 😉
Happy FAWM, Sue. The dotted Prussian skyway will get finished.
Ah work/schmirk! I can forget about it as soon as I leave the office, so excited to start 😁
HI HI HI 😃😃
Hello Sue! Here's to another year of FAWM and some lovely lyrics on your part!
Ahaha, ah yes, I was wondering where our six-figure budget music video was 😉 But no, that's cool! Glad you're around. And you're flat out WRONG I'm afraid. How about if you write a poem that I feel resonates, I have a go at laying a musical backdrop that you read over? Pleeeeeease
Coming soon... some awe?
I bet you can't beat your record from last year's FAWM. What was it? 40 entries???
Awesome Sue... I'm glad I don't need to wait until FAWM to run into you on the internet, but am always glad to see you here too!
Hello, reve fluer is beautiful 😀
Suuuuuue, hope you're around this year. I want to hear some spoken word stuff 😀
