I write lyrics and music. I look for opportunities to move my writing in different directions. FAWM was an incredible experience last year. It moved me forward in my writing. This year, I want to collaborate on more songs. I like the challenge of writing for different genres and tempos. The ukulele is my instrument of choice. Piano and keyboards, as well as, fiddle come in handy. I find the ukulele to be an incredibly versatile instrument.
I am not a singer. I hear other voices in my head when I write. They are always on key and they rarely talk back.
This is my second FAWM. I reached my goal of 14 last year. MY GOAL THIS YEAR IS 18 songs with an AUDIO file for 14. I did not post any audio last year.
I want to collaborate and skirmish on more songs. I have kept a “notebook” of song ideas. FAWM is just the tool I need to look at these and finish, or let go of, some lyrics.
I appreciated the feedback. I will listen to 5 new artists each day.
I hope your mind is nimble, your fingers are limber and your vocals on key. Let’s do this!

Thank you for Baggage Claim, too. You found it fast!
Thank you for listening to Sunglasses. I'm not sure I'd feel hidden in blue hair, but then I haven't tried it yet.
Thanks for your comments on "All Night".
Still hoping for some audio from you! I like the new profile photo.
Thank you for checking out "Reflections" and taking the time to share your thoughts. I really appreciate it!
Thanks for your nice words 😀
Happy fawming 😀
"sooky" One of these wretched not really translatable words. Urban Dictionary gives this example:
>>Sook: An Australian slang term used to indicate another person is soft, easily upset, or just a plain pussy.
Joe: I'm in so much pain right now, I've got such a bad bruise on my knee.
Bob: *Looks at Joe's Knee* You call that a bruise, don't be such a sook,
John: Yeah Joe you pussy, don't be such a sook.<<
The word was originally Scottish, for "suck", implies being a baby about something.
Thanks so much for your comments on “Racin Through My Thoughts.” It was such a blast! I noticed your influences are some of my favorites. This is my second FAWM, too. It’s been very enlightening.
How could I forget about Ukulele Aquisition Syndrome? Maybe because it's been a almost a year since I got a new one (up to 7 now).
Thanks for feedback on my song much appreciated.
Suzie, thank you for your comments on "Finding My Way Home". Much appreciated.
What's UAS? Closest thing I could find was the Ukulele Station of America.
Good to see you here again--and looking forward to hearing your music!
Hey Suzie, thanks for the comments on Lies and Goodbyes. Sometimes I think the pressure of a 1 hour skirmish (even if that starts at 5am) can be more productive for me than trying to sit down and write. I have several fragments going right now. I just need to nail them down!
Thanks for the comment . I finally figured the hosting process and now have a demo for it.
LOL - I totally get the inner voices "always being on key and rarely talking back". Thanks for your comments Suzie, I look forward to hearing some audio from you this year.
hi Suzie and yes lets do this!
my mom told me she met some uke fawmers a while back! super cool. she's thinking about participating for the first time this year... happy fawming!
Welcome Suzie and happy FAWMing!
P.S. Your soundcloud link doesn't seem to work.
Welcome back! I look forward to hearing your work.
Happy FAWM 2019! Hope you have a great time and write lots of new songs!
