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!
Thanks for the head's up. It's playing now. Soundcloud glitch I think.
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?
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?
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!!
Thank you for the wonderful comment on May My Angels Always Guide Me!!
Thanks for the supportive comments on “Mine Tonight.” 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 I’m heading in.
thanks so much for your nice comments 😀
Thanks for checking out "Lacey Down in the Dirt" and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it!
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!
Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on “I Want To.” I’m realizing that that’s my strength and traditional songs are my weakness. I appreciate your validation that my instincts are right on.
Thanks for the listen. Had some fun with “Tequila Take Me Home.”
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!
Yes, I am back!
Let me know if you need some lyrics!
Thank you for your note here about “Everybody Lies” up on Reverbnation/SoundCloud.
Hi, yes Taunton is in the South-West of the UK, almost tropical 😉 but I live in Italy right now (almost flooded) but moving to Portugal this year!
