  Feb 2008


Artist Bio

Influences:   Aimee Mann, Carole King, Tori Amos, Laura Nyro, Kate Bush, Bette Midler, Fleetwood Mac, Indigo Girls, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Beatles of course!

2019 I've had another challenging entry into the New Year and I swear I just want to quit making music and playing because of all the frustrations. Maybe FAWM will pull me out of that.

MY 11th FAWM!! A WHOLE DECADE!! What do I win??
2018 - I am hoping to do FAWM and crossing my left fingers since I started the year out by slipping on the ice and breaking my right elbow (not good for a Pianist and piano teacher!)
2017 -gosh I don't remember but more than 14
2016 - 31 plus a couple corpses; I didn't count!
2015 - 28 never going back to under 14
2014 - 10 songs - my Mom was in rehab for fractured back and my cat died of cancer
2013 - 14 songs! almost all collaborations...wow all these years I thought it was 13 but I organized my files on dropbox by years and found it was 13...I had doubled a number!
2012- 10 songs : 5 collaborations- a first for me
2011 - 13 songs
2010 - 8 songs
2009 - 4 songs
2008 - just lurked

Trump administration - let's see if I can write when I'm soooo upset!

    loricitro@aol.com? Ah, I see my error. Re-sent to the correct email, via Paypal.

  • @nancyrost  Mar 3

    It was Paypal. I wonder if I mistyped a character or something. I'll check.

  • @tiller2  Mar 2

    "We honor the muse wherever we find it." So true, Lori, and thanks for commenting on "Easy Shed My Tears." I was feeling my mortality late at night and, as the song challenge opened a tiny rift for creativity, those thoughts rushed out and took over. πŸ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Feb 27

    I'm OK with you performing it and I see that Amanda's good with it πŸ˜€

  • @ajna1960 Feb 27

    Knock yourself out @the3queens re Wriggle Them Fingers ! All I ask is that if you send in setlists to your PRO, that you include this, as I will have registered it by then πŸ˜€ Thank you, this is a real honour.

  • @nancyrost  Feb 27

    Sent via Paypal FRIENDS - looks like it'll take a day to process, but you should have it then. Yep, I always have to remind people about the fees when they're paying me. I'll look into getting other payment services; it's a pain!

  • @nancyrost  Feb 27

    Hi Lori, I'd like to send you a Fawmstock deposit but don't have Venmo or Google Pay. I do have Paypal, or could snail-mail you a check - are those options?

  • @metalfoot  Feb 26

    Wriggle Them Fingers has music now.

    Hi Lori. The cut up method is when you take and article of writing, a short story, a newspaper article, or a chapter of a story in a form (whether an article from newspaper or magazine, printed copy of a story--something you don't mind cutting up) and you cut the words up anywhere within a sentence giving a few or more words on some strips, one on others, two on others and then rearrange the words to create new lines. Oftentimes you will get some unique word pictures this way. Play around with the words rearranging them until you get something somewhat obscure, yet cohesive, then you create a new theme based on what you come up with and arrange your strips into your song story. Sometimes you might have to change something for the cohesiveness of the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1InC...

    Thanks, Lori! I sing a handful of my own things for 5090 and a few for FAWM - mostly I sing when I do morphs, exquisite corpses, and auntie sin games because I have to and I try to push outside my comfort zone.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 21

    Hey thanks for stopping by and commenting on Cheques. I can't take credit for the hook line but will own the crappy guitar bashing. πŸ˜‰

  • @cts  Feb 21

    Hey Lori - do you accept Zelle as a payment for FAWMstock?

  • @misterd Feb 21

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song ' Im so glad i got rid of facebook '! Cheers mate !

  • @timfatchen  Feb 19

    if I send a drop box link you can have the actual .wav file so you can do the trick of split mono (panned hard L and hard R and float your voice right down the middle: dropbox okay?

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 15

    Thanks for commenting on Faith. I updated it per @airbagtester 's comments as it made sense. πŸ˜€ We should do a skirmish this weekend...have not done one at all yet this month!!! lol

  • @timfatchen  Feb 13

    "Near the walled garden" Lori, lyrics, go for it. FYI the alternative title is "Paradise in Sight" , that may help or hinder. Actually I suggest ifyou record it you put it up under that title as a collab (I'll be gone within 6 days, not back till Mar 5) and use a joint copyright statement on it. Do you want a better (higher quality) track than the 190bps CD standard MP3?

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 13

  • @crisp1  Feb 13

    Goodbye is all yours, Lori!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 13

  • @dragondreams  Feb 11

    Hmmm... My tablet has just refused to play anything from Soundcloud! 😣
    I'll be back tomorrow to listen when I'm on the PC. 😎🀘

  • @dragondreams  Feb 11

    Aww, thanks Lori. 😊
    I'd had coffee... It just hadn't started to work at that point though. πŸ˜‰

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 11

    LMFAO! NOOOOOO!!!! I had to switch things around for the song... there are still parts of the conversation I'm remembering that I need to put in there... lolol...(just need to switch those around, too...you know...add some drama lol)

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2019

    Hi Lori!!! Don't quit - I feel like that sometimes too. Take care of yourself, and take a deep breath. It really does fall into place eventually. πŸ˜€
