Ok hello 2021 and all you lovely people in fawmland!
So last year was out, this year with a now one year old demanding most of my time, I will do my best. Will snatch little piece of time where I can, let's hope the lack of time will make me super efficient! I'm aiming for a minimum of 4 songs. Let's face it they will probably be baby songs with glockenspiels etc
Apologies in advance my time for listening and commenting more than one word will be limited but again will do my best!
Gah the last week, actually more, we've been knocked out with plagues. Caring for a sick baby whilst sick = unfun.
Anyways I'm bowing out so happy though to have gotten 6 songs, so proud! Also so proud of all you, I have just been astounded at the talent on this site, so inspiring. I WILL get in some listening and commenting, my apologies for getting so behind but now we are well again can give a little back.
Thank-you all so much for your support and comment and congratulations on your creativity
Hey Susy...so glad you liked a twist on Twisted!
I was now available for most of FAWM, so I have been playing catch up. Always been a fan!
Congrats on the birth of your now one year old child!
Thank you for checking out "Vista" and for your kind comment. I really appreciate it. 👍
Thanks for listening to my songs. It's been a treat to find you here this year and I had you in mind in my February song about the fun of adding someone to your watchlist😊. Thanks for the great songs - can't wait to hear what you come up with next year!
Thank you, Susy, for the nice comments on "Camp Meeting".
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out a couple songs, Susy. Judging by your choice of imagery and your proclivity for darkness, "Vista" might be worth listening to if you have the time.
Thanks again. 😎
Thanks for the listen!
Just wanted to say that it was great having you and 'im indoors back this year. I've really enjoyed hearing your tunes again!
Thank you for your lovely comments. They mean a lot to us ❤
Thanks for coming to visit our Dr Sues song!
Thanks for the comment on Proud William - and I'd of course love you to do BVs...IF you could find the time.
Ah thanks so much for listening lovely. And Doc martin. My uncle Nigel (the one who lives in cornwall and inspired the sea shanty) has a holiday home in the village where Doc is filmed (port isaac) and me and .....ahem a couple of ex girlfriends have been there to stay. Its like a toy village as cars can't get down there due to the streets being too narrow!!!!. and convict ancestors. Hee hee. I am now imagining recreations of you and your hubby on a pirate ship dancing your assess off entertaining the crew 😉
Yes! Please send things my way too: firstname.lastname@example.org Experiencing freak ice storms in TX and may be without power for a few days though so if you don't hear back just assume I'm snuggling in our living room tent with my kiddos staying warm!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments on ammolite. But believe me, I can definitely be corny! hah. Loving everything you've created this year If I get my shit together enough this year to send you a collab, what's the best way to do that?
Got bored of being uninspired, so just recorded a couple of ideas on my phone. Shall I email them over, see if they spark anything on your end?
Well abso-bloody-lutely! (I was going to hit you up for some backing vocals last year, but creating a brand-new unique and amazing human being from scratch was probably higher priority.) Islands in the Stream or bust. (I'm Dolly, right?)
I'm very much at the empty-tank why-am-I-even-doing-this stage, but maybe writing something for your voice will get the motor running. Give me a shout if you think of something in the meantime. Wooo!
Thank you for your kind words on my song, “My Baby” ❤️
Thank you! If I discover something that could use your voice, I'd love to reach out.
Thanks for checking out How Much? and for your kind comments.
Glad you liked it!
Great to hear from you, Susy. Yes, the doggies are great, thank you. I'd love to see a picture of Ziggy with his new hairdo, if you get the chance.
I hope it's all going ok with Juniper. Best wishes to you and the family.
Yay, Susy's back! Missed you last year, but I suppose with a newborn you've got your sleeplessness needs sorted - FAWM's a bit redundant. Excellent to see you making music again. (Best to you & Mikey - pandemic parents should get a little bonus trophy.)
You're heeeeere! Yes please to making wonderweird sounds with you. <3
My first FAWM, I wrote almost all my songs for my kids. One of them was a preschooler, and the other wasn't verbal yet. You can do it!
For my first several years I'd get a good handful of songs recorded at bedtime. Folks around here are totally happy with quirky nursery rhymes and stuff. (IMO, there's not enough fun nursery rhymes.)
Ha ha. Hey lovely. Just as you were typing the hello message i was listening to your banging tune. Great to see you and for once i wish i am dreaming of the hot sunshine you must be enjoying down there (although secretly we got snow today so i bought a sledge 😉 ) x
Well, congratulations, was looking forward to seeing what you came this, looks like I'll have to wait for next.
Hi Susy! Just 1 week till FAWM!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.
"Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.
But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
Hello to one of my favourite artists in the world! Lyns and I have a CD in the car with loads of your FAWM demos on it. We listen to it all the time. Lyns is a massive fan, I think she listens to your music more than she listens to mine. My favourites are "You've Got Time", and one which I don't know the title of, but there's a lyric that goes "like the space around us always stretches out" which is a phenomenal piece of writing and arranging. Oh, and "The Birds Came Back". And Lyns really loves "The Pope Should Have A Baby" (Ha!),
I hope all is going well with you guys.
Hope to see back this year, Susy!
🙏 🙏 🙏
