Influences: The Kinks, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Billie Holiday
Songwriting for years. This is my Fifth FAWM.
On collaborating- If I am inspired it will work well. I do both music and lyrics- phrasing for melodies and trying to find the hook!
I usually play rhythm guitar to write but also a keyboard arranger that I really love using for one touch production and recording! Listen to past FAWM and other songs of mine on the soundcloud link.

Thank you all! Our world needs more inspiration and kindness. FAWM delivers.

Thank you for stopping by to comment on my song "Asking For A Friend". It was a fun skirmish for sure. Your thoughts are all important to me and as I go back over my songs to develop them, I will keep all comments handy. I really appreciate your time and support, vs!
Hey Laurie, I got a laugh out of this and thought you might too. I was looking at the random title generator to get the link for someone asking about how to generate a skirmish prompt and this was one of them:
'the vegan in astronomy' 😀
Thanks for the listen and kind comment 👍
Sure - link to email on my profile page and I will send you 3 back -
We could - or you suggest a few, I pick one for us both to write to... so we write to the same title.
That sounds good! I like the idea of reciprocal song title - do you want to throw out a few options and then I’ll choose the one we should go with?
Hi, we are paired to provide each other with a challenge. Do you have a preference how we do this? I pick anything for you and you pick anything for me or we both do a similar or complementary challenge? Have you ever been to Wisconsin?
Either that or send it to me and I will mix it. I like doing that kind of stuff anyway. Thanks!
For sure! Just keep in mind that I don’t mind multiple versions, so if you’re not into that, no worries. Thanks for checking it out!
Thanks for your comments on "Not Ready for Steady". It's not a ticking clock. A couple of nondescript samples from a collection of household sounds run through a bit crusher plugin.
Thank you for your kind comments on 'Ready, Steady, Go' The first chorus in it is a narration of what happened precisely!! 😀
Thank you for your comments on my "Ready to Go"! It cheered me up after a weeks pause in FAWM!
Thank you for the appreciation and kind comments on 'Don't Put It Off' 😀
Thanks for your kind comments on My Old Town.
They are talented boys (men) indeed,
Thanks for the kind words! I’m dealing with a power outage inPortland, so my FAWM has ground to a halt
Hey thanks for the kind words! 😊
I'm not sure I've got the ability to write a pop punk song, but if I find the time I might give it a go? If you find someone else whilst waiting for me then that's cool!
Thank you for the new demo - I love it.
Thanks for the listen and comments!
hey-- not seeing the email but will check and see if it got hit by the spam filter or something! 😀
Thank you for letting me know !
I love Double Crossed! A classic and if you see anymore of my lyrics you want to try, go for it.
I guess we're paired for the random collab? 😀
Thanks for the comment on my skirmish song!
Yes, you can post collabs to soundcloud and set it to private, then copy the link it posts before you close the upload screen. Then enter that link into the link space in the FAWM upload screen - only people who follow the link can listen to your song and it will not show up to the public. Hope that helps!
Yes, email is probably best. It is on the top of my profile. Thank you !
Hi there ! You asked if you could musicate my song lyric 'Without You'. The answer is yes 😀 I will add you as a collab person.
Just a quick question: someone else also asked, but after you, so unless you are happy for there to be more than one FAWM version, I will decline the other request. Please let me know asap ! Thank you and stay safe, Amanda
I emailed you back
Sure, go for it!
I appreciate your kind words! Thank you kindly
im still alive. lets get this party started.
Hi Laurie, hope ya have a great FAWM! I enjoyed our collab last 50/90!
Hey Laurie, great to see you here again!
