My 8th FAWM year.... (I still need to re-write Or at least edit this for 2019)

I have made many new friends here - and for me, that is a very big part of the action. Collaboration is important not just for any individual song, but because there will be a future from there.

    Hi there Russ! Wondering. . . have you written a bluegrass tune before? Either way - would you be interested in collab-ing on one? I have lyrics and a melody but it's the usual, melancholy sound of mine. . . and the lyrics kind of shout out happy bluegrass, but I don't know. . . I realize there's not much time left, but let me know what you think. (I can send what I've currently got if that helps) Thanks! Angelina

    Damn, baby! We do such good things together!

  • @boyatheart  Feb 21

    Thanks for the head's up. It's playing now. Soundcloud glitch I think.

  • @kc5 Feb 18

    I never would have thought of that. I had a totally different, yet cloudy vision for it, but did a 007 search and listened and I think your idea is brilliant! How fun would that be! Are you up for that?

  • @kc5 Feb 18

    Hi Russ, I'm not quite sure the genre on soul seed, but I think it might need a gentle, simple touch with a bit of intensity in it. This one is challenging me a bit. What were your thoughts?

  • @angelinapowersuit Feb 18

    Big overall thanks for your feedback on my songs, Russ! I really look forward to reading them, you always have something unique and insightful. to say. THANK YOU!!

  • @mishykatz  Feb 18

    Thank you for the wonderful comment on May My Angels Always Guide Me!!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 16

    Thanks for the supportive comments on โ€œMine Tonight.โ€ It started off as a specific Four-on-the-Floor song instead of my usual Kick Drum template - hence the 80s sound. I really appreciate your comments. This is definitely the direction Iโ€™m heading in.

  • @aesthetic72 Feb 15

    thanks so much for your nice comments ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @kc5 Feb 11

    Thanks for checking out "Lacey Down in the Dirt" and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it!

  • @angelinapowersuit Feb 7

    Hi Russ! THANK YOU for your comments on "Cling!" Means so much to me! And helps me to get past the anxiety of sharing my music. Can't wait to hear what you've been up to!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 7

    Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on โ€œI Want To.โ€ Iโ€™m realizing that thatโ€™s my strength and traditional songs are my weakness. I appreciate your validation that my instincts are right on.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 5

    Thanks for the listen. Had some fun with โ€œTequila Take Me Home.โ€

    Hey Russ! Thanks so much for your supportive words. I'm trying something a little different this year. I'm trying to reduce my social media time and yet still write songs, so I'm marking my songs private for now because temptation to read comments on my songs/comment on other songs pulls me back into social media time, which I'm trying to wrangle into submission to me, not the other way around. At some point its likely I will publish what I create, but probably a 1x/week sort of thing when I will also comment on other peoples' creation. A little unorthodox, I know, but I just need to command the social media presence in my life, not let it command me, so I'm trying some new things. I'll be in touch!

  • @capriciousangel Feb 3

    Yes, I am back!
    Let me know if you need some lyrics!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 2

    Thank you for your note here about โ€œEverybody Liesโ€ up on Reverbnation/SoundCloud.
