she/her they/their

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?

  • @tiller2  2 days

    Hi, I emailed you a lyric for "Black Ice" I hope you like it πŸ˜€

  • @hmorg 2 days

    Thanks for the comment!

  • @kraftec 4 days

    Here's the final version of The Journey. Feel free to upload anywhere, although you may have to convert it to mp3.

  • @tiller2  4 days

    Of course, you could also pitch an idea or a twist on one of mine!

  • @tiller2  4 days

    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?

  • @tiller2  5 days

    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... πŸ˜€

    Thanks for commenting on Hope Beyond Hope. I'm just grateful my sensibility (if not my voice - I'm out of practice) was up to the challenge of complimenting @crisp1's words.

  • @kovbleu  1 week

    Wait, wait, wait. I thought you were already on my watchlist. That answers my previous comment. Ha! πŸ˜€ Well, that's fixed now. <3

  • @kovbleu  1 week

    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?!

  • @moonraccoon  1 week

    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.

  • @kraftec 1 week

    It would be amazing if you could do the vocals for my song πŸ™ As usual make sure to send me the vocal track when you're done πŸ˜€

  • @kraftec 1 week

    Here's a WIP instrumental of The Journey. If you could record the vocals and send me the isolated tracks that would be great πŸ˜€ Downloads are enabled if you want to drag it in to your DAW

    Thanks for your comment, Catherine. I finally write a song I can imagine people singing along to and it’s about throwing underwear!

  • @beesmusic 1 week

    Thank you, @wacha for your nice comments about 75x. My goal for FAWM is to write with a lot of truth, however painful. I am glad you liked this tune, very appreciated and a high compliment coming from a great songwriter like yourself!

  • @kahlo2013  1 week

    Yeah, Get Yourself Together is a GREAT song. I want to listen again but am in clinic seeing patients all day. Later!

  • @jamkar  1 week

    Thank you.

  • @kahlo2013  1 week

    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.

  • @ahasuerus 1 week

    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.

    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 πŸ˜€

  • @karlsburg25  1 week

  • @ustaknow 1 week

    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.

    Call Friend

    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.

  • @jamkar  2 weeks

    I am running late, but just wanted to say hi, and welcome back my friend!

    I thought you did a great job on my stuff last year and would be very happy to work with you again.

  • @zecoop  4 weeks

    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. πŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  4 weeks

    Happy FAWMing from Pittsburg... I feel like there might be a song about bridges....
