Influences: Melissa Etheridge, Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac, Paul Williams, 10,000 Maniacs, Sarah McLachlan, Madonna, The White Stripes, Ghost
2016 - 12 songs
2017 - 14 songs, including 1 collaboration
2018 - 19 songs, including 8 collaboration (though there may be 1 more on the way)
I am going to try to put myself out there for some more collaborations and hopefully after February I will refine the songs some more and get a FAWM album done.
I am currently recording everything on a TASCAM DP-008EX and then importing it into Reaper.
All of my acoustic songs are done on my Tanglewood acoustic guitar though occasionally I will use my Yamaha Guitalele. For my softer, dreamier electric stuff I use my Tangelwood hollow body guitar. For the the more aggressive electric I will use my Fender Squire Strat.
I play some cajon so that appears from tiem to time as does the shaker and tambourine.
I did get a new ukulele which may or may not make it onto a recording.

hey, my email is a bit wonky, and in case you didn't get my message, I'm happy that you like the Black Ice lyrics. Looking forward to what you come up with, suggesting only a hard-driving rhythm (obvious) and some icy sounds at the slick spots (cymbals, fx, dunno). If you need electric guitar, I can provide. Open to word changes, too. Drive on! 😁
Thank you for sending me the vocal tracks for The Other Side, I dont seem to be able to download them though. Maybe downloads are not enabled for those tracks?
Hi, I emailed you a lyric for "Black Ice" I hope you like it 😀
Thanks for the comment!
Of course, you could also pitch an idea or a twist on one of mine!
I have several lyric ideas I could email you if I have your addy; you could pick one, I’ll write, you can add to, and make the music. A plan? email@example.com
Hey there, we're matched up for the randocollab! Both as "eithers." Any preferences or ideas bubbling up? I'll listen to some of your songs later today and see if they spark an idea... 😀
Wait, wait, wait. I thought you were already on my watchlist. That answers my previous comment. Ha! 😀 Well, that's fixed now. <3
Thank you so much for your kind comment on "Here Again." I really appreciate the listen!! Now I'm checking out your songs because I can't figure out how I haven't already yet this year! Kind of crazy week it's been, huh?!
Thanks for your comment on "A Culture...". When you say "sad truths and painful things", some days that feels like the true meaning of life.
It would be amazing if you could do the vocals for my song 🙏 As usual make sure to send me the vocal track when you're done 😀
Thank you for the listen!!! <3
Thanks for your comment, Catherine. I finally write a song I can imagine people singing along to and it’s about throwing underwear!
Yeah, Get Yourself Together is a GREAT song. I want to listen again but am in clinic seeing patients all day. Later!
Ha! Songs have a funny way of coming to us and sometimes I get on a kick in some area that is so far removed from my real life I wonder where is came from and what it all means.
Coming from you, praise on any one of my songs is mightily appreciated. Listened to all of your stuff: Great vocals and guitar playing wacha. Awesome.
Thank you so much for your kind comment.
I'll get started on the full arrangement and send you something soon!
I checked out The Ballad of Marion Crane! I love the raw vibe and the grittiness of the guitar. Great track and thanks for sharing the first line and the song 😀
Er should have been thanks so much of course 😜
Hi lovely . Thanks so Kick for the comment and yes you can totally add tambourine or whatever else to it . Please do 👍
Liked your link to "The Ballad Of Marion Crane", nice production. No lyric there, so, just to say - great sound, feel, great to see the evolution.
Is it okay?!? YES! Please!
Thanks for stopping by Catherine! Much appreciated! Happy FAWMing!
You're in St Mary's Hospital. (Let's not ask why.) Nurse Sharon slips something into your hand when the doctor isn't looking. Be stealthy! Otherwise, the orderly will surely take it away.
It is an old parchment with a spell scratched on it: Call Friend. Call Friend will bring another person to you, right to here, anyone in the world.
I am running late, but just wanted to say hi, and welcome back my friend!
Hi!! Miss you in NJ, but so glad to be here with you!
Hey! Hope we can collab again this year 😀
You've got me listening to all of this new music (new to me) and now I need to purchase that Feist and Renaissance, I can't imagine what your own music will do LOL!!
Welcome back Cat! Good luck.
Hey, Catherine! I am SO looking forward to this year and really hoping we can collaborate again, too!
Welcome back to FAWM, can't wait to hear the new tunes!
Hi. Good luck and relax into it!
Hello!!! Ready for another year?!!
I thought you did a great job on my stuff last year and would be very happy to work with you again.
My dad is really excited about another year of FAWM, and mentioned (a few times) how much he is hoping people will want to collaborate with his lyrics again. So, if you are interested in any, he'll definitely be up for it. 😀
Happy FAWMing from Pittsburg... I feel like there might be a song about bridges....
Hey there - welcome back to the fun!! Looking forward to hearing yours... 😀
