Artist Bio

Influences:   Peter Mulvey, Gillian Welch, Elvis Costello, Jeffery Foucault, Tom Waits, They Might Be Giants,

**Note: I'm always curious what will happen if other people put music to my lyrics. If you love a lyric and feel compelled, please take it and run**

I think it's been seven years since I last did FAWM.
Over on Facebook I run a little group called "The Fearless Songwriter" (It's here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Fearl...
Six times a year we write seven songs in seven days, or aim to at least.
@BethDeSombre has taken on the mantle of hosting a Challenge in February for Fawmers the last few years and will be doing it again this year.

Anyone who likes my lyrics and wants to take a break at doing their own music for them--hack away.

    Timmy!! Thanks for suggesting fawm to us over at Fearless Songwriting Challenge. This was a blast and I’m totally hooked. Thanks again and see you over at FSC in April!! Enjoyed all your songs as per usual!

    You made me laugh out loud with these two comments on my Salmon of Knowledge song:
    "The ballad of the Salmon and his Finn, perhaps"
    "Guess the Celts valued Omega 3 fatty acids for brain power too."
    Glad you enjoyed the song.😊😊😊

    Thanks! Had the lyrics 3/4 done from the early afternoon of our collab day. Got home and decided to finish it up. Thanks for working together on the song. I think it takes a while to get a good flow in collaboration and figure out how each other works and thinks. I realized yesterday, that when I “collaborate” with myself I’m working with a “partner” I know intimately.

    You're amazing! Congrats on your solid win. With such great songs!!!!

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 13

    An INFP and you’re in Mass! What were you thinking for collaboration?

  • @s7even  Feb 13

    It was my pleasure. What a great song.

    Timmy! Thanks for the kind words on my tune! I didn't know what "mellifluous" meant and I look it up. How kind of you to such a colorful adjective with me 😀

  • @berni1954  Feb 11

    Glad you liked my "Fire & Rain" CGBs are great fun.

    As for the "On the Sly" line. Well, last FAWM I wrote an entire song based around that line:

    I look forward to listening to the rest of your stuff this month. I am only going on the six songs I have heard so far, but I really do think you are the most truly poetic writer I have found here. 🖖
