So here we are. 2019!
This February kind of snuck up on me and I don’t necessarily feel mentally prepared to take on the FAWM challenge. But I will be around so we’ll see what happens!
I am a pianist and singer from Madison, WI. I started writing in 2013 and love creating my own music. Besides playing music I love to spend time with my husband and our four boys, run/workout, read, and volunteer at a local hospital.
I look forward to listening and enjoying the amazing music from all you amazing people! FAWM on!
***Well I managed 17 songs despite not feeling into it this year. Thanks for all the support. This place is amazing.

Thanks for commenting on my collab song "Reach For The Stars", I appreciate the listen!
I'm still hoping for another collab with you, you know... It's been a long time! This year was nuts, but just putting that out there. 😀
I totally agree, Theresa! The first one was such a cool surprise. I'm still in awe that you figured out how to combine Rob's music and my lyrics the way you did. And I love, love, love Beethoven's Baby. I hope, too, that we'll be able to work together down the road!
Thank you. February should be for writing and recording, March for listening. It’s manic what with life and everything. Still lots of fun.
Thank you for still listening.
We’re still catching up on our listening. Your songs are brilliant and your piano and vocal are truely wonderful.
Congratulations on the win!
Thanks for listening and commenting on my collab "Since We First Touched" I appreciate it!
Sounds great, Theresa - thanks so much!
Thank you for your comment on my version of fakeit. The challenge was a wonderful way to end my first FAWM! I was amazed at all the different directions the song took!
Thank you! No, I don't plan to do what you do!!! Goodness. The nice thing was that I didn't feel weird about singing this time. It was so cool to have my son hum the tune and transpose that into instruments...then when he was recording the drums, he said that this was the best thing that he has done in his entire life....probably not accurate, but it obviously made an impression and was worthwhile for him. Thank you so much.....
Thank you for offering to host! I'm assuming it'd be a small group for a Madison FOP. Would you have some weekend dates in March that would work? I just put a poll in the local Facebook group. I can edit it based on your availability. And we can post in the forum for those non-Facebookers too.
You are my hero! I couldn’t survive a zong today! Thank you!
Thanks for your comment on Only My Song. I hope your managing through the winter well. I had family all over Wisconsin. I grew up both Southeast and Northwest of you, since my Dad moved us around due to his work. But I loved Wisconsin, especially Madison and its surroundings.
Thanks for the comments on Unturn the World, Theresa. And congratulations on "winning!"
Thanks for your kind compliments on Too Hot to Handle. Appreciate you taking the time to listen. And congrats on 14+ (18! So much for being done. 😀)
Thanks for your comments on Germaphobe Blues, glad you enjoyed it!
Thank you so much for your fantastic work on Felis Catus. I couldn't imagine anyone could have done more justice to the spirit of the thing.
Also, are you Katie Melua in disguise? We're friends now, you can tell me.
Hi, Theresa - you are most welcome to put the song to music. Thank you for stopping by and putting your hand up.
Thanks for your sweet comments on my song 'Your Touch In The Dark'.😊
Thanks so much for your kind comments on my song ‘Away from the flame ‘.
Thanks for listening and commenting - much appreciated!
thanks for your comment Theresa, I have surprised myself as always and am getting better than i ever thought i could be will the positive songs. i thought i would not be able to do it. my guitar playing has improved and i am inspired to try an open mic on my own with a few of my new tunes. I have never performed without the backing of a band so this will be a challenge. We shall see if i manage to find the bottle to do it.
Thanks so much for your kind words about my song. Cheers Greg
We need to make an album next, this one is amazing.

Thank you for commenting on The Window!
Thanks for all your comments - they mean so much coming from you. I listen to and comment on your songs because I love your music - from the insights and use of language in your lyrics and your musical sensibility to your lovely touch on the keys and beautiful vocals. It is my pleasure and a privilege to listen!
Thanks for all your nice comments!
FYI - Demo is up on Winter Light Festival and some other songs!! Working on more...

You're most welcome. It's a good song.
Thanks for commenting and listening to "Nothin' To Lose", appreciate it!
Thanks for your comment on Bike Ride, much appreciated!
Thank you for your great compliment on Hope Beyond Hope.
I'm *rotten* at solos, Theresa. Hate them with a passion and yet in certain songs always seem to feel they're necessary for some reason. Next time I'm just going to leave an 8 bar space and let folks use their imaginations.
All you need to do is catch a shooting star, Theresa Ann!
I’ve just about worn out your songs from last year. Please treat us with some more of your work! I’m willing to bet you could right 18 songs.
Oh, come on, you’ve got it in you...all you need is a little inspiration.
Hehehe, I just read it and listened!! Sorry about the delay! I hope that it didn’t mess with you having to interpret a delay like that. I love it! How that occurred to you is beyond me, but I love it.
I really appreciate your nice comments on my song! Thank you so much for listening! I am looking forward to hear more songs from you!
Thanks for the kind words on "Get Yourself Together" glad you like it!
Thanks for your lovely comments on my lyrics - look forward to hearing what else you create 😀
Thank you for your comment on She Says. I'm glad you enjoyed the song.
Thanks for the comment on '24 Hours to Midnight'!
Thank you very much for your nice comment appreciated <3
Thanks for your comment on “I Want To.”
Hey lovely . Great to see you here . Sending you all the best from Thai 👍
I would LOVE that!!! Thank you! I will put in my notes!
Looking forward to your songs, and cheers to a productive FAWM!
Hey, Theresa! I'm so glad you're here. Even if you just write a few songs, that's a few more than you've written so far, right? I, for one, am looking forward to anything you do!
Hey there! How are things with you?
Hi there! Hope you can FAWM this year... 😀
