It's 2023 and we are here! again! Whoop-whoop!

Sooo late for the party. Was held up by a nasty flu... , so let's get FAWM 2020 started!

FUN FACTS about me: I am left-handed (how fun ist that) / I like to sleep on my belly / I learned to ride the bike twice (despite common believe, that you only need to learn it once). If you want to make my day, tell me some fun facts about YOURSELF on my soundboard!

Fun FAWM Facts: only person who has rapped in German at FAWM 2017... as far as I know :-)

2017
I am Singer-Songwriter from Germany and this is my second your of FAWM. I am quite focused on lyrics, so it probably doesn't surprise you that I work as a teacher for German and English at a college :-)
Last year I wrote around 5 songs... I can be quite critical with myself.

This year I got myself a loop machine to play with and a viola. I love strings, but my main instrument is the guitar. (If you are lucky I might dig out an electric guitar that I've got lying around somewhere.)

Updade:

19/2

"I lend my untrained ear
To 200 talented FAWMers here
Now please put my humble name
On this golden wall of fame"

Listening to all those songs has been an absolute joy and inspiration. I am in awe of all those heartfelt lyrics I found. Some told stories that have happened to me also, but I could have never put it into words myself. I found it deeply healing. And I have laughed a lot along the way,the humor and wit I came across blew my mind. I guess, the heart of life is good after all.
Quoting my fellow FAWMER @michaelsalamone: I became "a giant fan of other independent musicians and that makes me extremely happy."

Thanks for the comment on Untitled, very much appreciated. The bass drone sounded fantastic as the initial track I put down. So loud, but I had to reduce the volume considerably as it had all the meters in red. I'm shouting untitled, but I'm tired sounds better, gives me lyric ideas, I may revisit later. Thanks for the input.

Thanks for your comments on Tapping Maple trees. It's the process by which we get maple syrup. Drill a hole, hammer in spile, hang a bucket, collect the sap, boil it down, ratio sap to syrup, 40 to 1.

Thanks for checking out Glimpse and leaving a comment! It would be a dream come true to perform it live!

@nadine
Thanks for your comment on "Glimpse". I wish we lived closer, but 6000 km is a bit too far for band practise xD

Dittos from me on "Always You". Thank you for your kind words.

So glad you enjoyed Always You. I was very happy when Jeff offered to sing and produce this one. I love the dreamy vibe he created, and his delivery was exactly what I was hoping for. I'm smiling at your comments.

Thank you for your comment on my song "Good luck with loving me"! And reading other comments, great to see all the fellow left handed peeps here :)

Hey hey! So good to see YOU on here. I didn’t remember that you had done FAWM in years past! Hooray. I’m adding you to my watchlist 💖

Sarah, I originally stated to write this in German but realized I did not know the word for “comments” and I’m starting over in English.

We are all yearning to hear a message from God and for me, my church attendance helps me to connect to that even if it’s not what the pastor thought should be the message should be.

I will be back around to listen to your songs. I think you should write one about learning to ride a bike more than one time. That’s a great metaphor for a theme for a song!

I’m also left handed

Hi Jessica, thanks so much for the lovely comments and follow, I’ll get you back for sure! It’s definitely my fave so far, and the sequel ‘dearest mother’ was my fave from last year.

Thanks for your comment under 'Get it done' I appreciate you taking the time.

Hey Jessica, ja da wohnen wir ganz nahbei. Das könnte durchaus mal ein 1:1 treffen geben. Freu mich mehr von dir zu hören :-)

@jeff9
Thank you so much, Jessica, for such lovely comments about "Pack Up and Leave". Doug, who wrote those lyrics, can write ones that almost sing themselves sometimes.

Hi Jessica!
Erst mal herzlichen Dank für deine netten Worte zu meinem "Bibel-Song"!
Ich hatte auch mal eine coole Zeit in Göttingen, das ist über 30 Jahre her. Ich habe "so halb" bei meiner damaligen Freundin gewohnt. Bin in Hann Münden auf's Gymmi gegangen - da war Göttingen schon so was wie die "große weite Welt". Aufgewachsenen bin ich übrigens in Reinhardshagen, falls dir das was sagt.

Dir auch viel Vergnügen in dieser schrägen FAWM-Welt!

Gruß aus Augschburg,
Volker

OK I just fixed my second song. Thank you for alerting me to a problem with it!
[avatar]
Thank you so much for your kind words Jessica! 😀

Fun fact: I've basically taught myself every instrument I play!

@artie
Thanks for saying hi, Jessica! We’re in full-swing FAWM mode over here. Just trying to pace myself. Last year I took it too seriously. Third year’s a charm I hope. :)

@cola
Thank you for the warm welcome, and I hope you have a wonderful FAWM as well!
[avatar]
Hey Jess it is wonderful to see you here again!
[avatar]
Yes, lots of catching up, I'm sure. My 'lost socks' chorus are growing up on me and won't sing the song anymore. LOL

Hey Jessica! You rock!
