Thank you for stopping by to comment on my song "Miracles", Valerie. I have tried to keep things positive this year. 2020 is in the rear view mirror and I'm trying to bring good energy in to share. I'll have to stop by a few of your songs. Seems like this year I've ended up around a small group and not listened nearly enough to those I've been fawming with for years.
Thanks for your nice comments Val!
Yes me too re 42, i have had a complete change of life the last 4 years and following the signs has been a vital part of this. I too say no such things as coincidences. Rather meant to be happenings.
Glad you liked my "Queen Beaver" number. I was worried about the falsetto. It used to be much stronger and grittier. Age does not forgive... as the Spanish say.
Thanks for the comment! Hope you're staying warm!
Yo I’m without electricity as well...sad to say it’s eliminated a lot of distraction. Thanks for checking my stuff out, Hallmark Cafe 4 Lyf
Thanks for your comments on my blues tune! Glad you could relate.
thanks for the ORacle prompt and for commenting on Red Cloak. glad you liked it...i think the idea of red riding hood came from a musical by sondheim called "Into the Woods" with fairytale characters....glad it resonated with you!!
Thanks for your kind words.
Thanks for commenting on my 10x10 challenge. And yes, I had to gather strength to let that 9-seconds song go, but I'm ok with that now (I think 😝 )
You're always welcome and it's always a real pleasure 😀
Oh my goodness, I love your genius suggestion to change the title of “The Me I Am With You” to simply “Exponentially”. Thank you, thank you!
Thanks for the feedback! Sorry to hear about your pup, they do always break our hearts, don't they?
Hello! Thank you so much for listening to Devotion! I was so happy hearing your comment!❤️❤️ I love Madonna and Bananarama!!❤️❤️
Thank you Val for your kind comments! I appreciate it. Always means a lot coming from someone with your musical skills and talents.
Thanks Val. It was very strange. I went back several times and the more I looked, the more amazed I was.
I probably will. The problem is there's one particular section in that book I want, but the public domain audiobook is over 12 hours long 😁 I'm sure with some searching I guess I could narrow it down to chapter and go from there though. It might get me off #slothcore for a bit until I probably inevitably combine the two 😁
Means a lot. Thank, Val. 😀
Thank you for your comment
Thanks for the nice feedback, Val!
Thank you for your comments on Sonata in Gm. Much appreciated. It would be good for someone to collaborate on this for sure, maybe some vocals....
Glad you liked my "Beginning and End" - I was worried it would sound clichéd, but I think the fact I'm using it as a very real physical sensation rather than a metaphor helps keep it outside cliché territory.
Massive thank you for your comments Valerie 😀
Thanks! and oh my....I haven't even thought about Toad the Wet Sprocket in a long time, until reading your influence list, so thanks for that!! 😁 Even if you don't dig their music(I do), but that's got to be one of the best band names of all-time haha.
Glad to see you back here again!
Glad you liked my Art Criticism in song, Val. If you are interested, after FAWM, check out my Youtube Channel Playlists for songs I have written inspired by Art and Poetry.
Thanks, Val. That "raw emotion" stuff is your ace. Don't lose it. 😀
Thank you for your generous words about "The Peregrine", it made my day <3 Happy fawming to you!
Thanks for your kind words about Brambino. I like the idea of it being prelude to something else. Perhaps could lead into something else. I like the idea of bringing changes of tempo and dynamics into other kinds of music.
Hey Val, thanks for your comment! Great to see you back here again 😀
Hey Val. 😀
Thank you for the listen and the kind words. And if it made you smile, good! Because that was the intention. 😉
I think its safe to say that I probably only heard one of those albums on your existence list - so I hope we can still be buds 😀
Really looking forward to your smooth shizzle this year after I bombed out last FAWM really badly and I hope you're still play that $5 piano of yours too
Hey, have a nice 2021 FAWM! Looking forward to your songs 😀
Greetings, and glory to your FAWM!
ROCK IT Snow Angel and I will be back to give you a listen!!!
Happy FAWM 2021. Looking forward to some great music!
Hi, Val! Happy FAWM 2021! Best wishes to you this year! 🎵
