Thanks Nadia. I just responded.
[avatar]
I'm so glad you liked Stranger Tides. I may come up with a new lyric to end with that would leave the listener a less hopeless - the point was to bring awareness to the issue of climate change and ocean warming. Maybe something to give hope/point to change.
[avatar]
Here is the recording of my collaboration on Soaring High, adding lyrics. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. https://write.fawm.org/songs/289564
[avatar]
Working on Stranger tides - should have it posted within the hour! Thanks for you help with the song, I think it came out well!
[avatar]
Thanks, Nadia, for your very kind words about Too Bourgeois For Me!
[avatar]
Thank you, Nadia! I also feel like "Alive" needs some positive lyrics but I'm not able to write some. Also need a vocalist. Leys see what happens
[avatar]
Thank you so much for commenting on my song "Quiet Desperation" and I appreciate your patience until I was well enough to get back to FAWMing!!
[avatar]
Thanks so much for the kind words.
[avatar]
Hi, Nadia, Yes, when you collab with @davidtaro and ask for "magic," that's definitely what you get! I'm so glad you enjoyed our collab, Firefly, and called out that very surprising (and very cool) Bridge. I love the words you used to describe the song. Thanks for commenting.
[avatar]
Thank you Nadia for your kind comments on Don't Play House with my Heart, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! 😁
[avatar]
Thanks Nadia for your kind comment on Watcher of the Sky and for your good wishes x
[avatar]
Thanks, Nadia. A good weekend to you, too!
[avatar]
Hi I'm back on my computer. I did not receive an email yet - have you sent one?
[avatar]
Thanks for taking "Hearts Lie All the Time" out for a spin, Nadia. I appreciate your nice comments. By the way, I had indicated that I would try do something with "Gutters Full of Rain". I see that @billwhite51 has already completed a version with beautiful vocals by @cola. Well done! I have a verse and a half written and will continue, if I can, to complete my version. The idea is to get practice top-lining which the lowest on my skillset list. Not trying to compete with Bill or anyone else, just getting practice.
[avatar]
no problem with the collab credit. i had a similar problem with a song i wrote with sonya heller which i credited to her name rather than sunnymae, her fawm name. so she had to advise me that her name did not appear as collaborator.
[avatar]
Hello Nadia,
Could you please add my name as a collaborator to Gutter Full of Teaars?
[avatar]
Fantastic- I thought Stanger tides may lend itself to keyboards too! I’ll be away this weekend, back Monday. No hurry.
[avatar]
Happy Valentine's Day, Nadia! I took a few days off next week. Would love to try and do a skirmish the same day/time as you! I'll email you <3
[avatar]
Thank you for your comment and for pointing out the long tail on the demo! Fixed it now :)
[avatar]
Feel free to turn it into a song if you feel inspired! Thanks for your comment, too. Good night!
[avatar]
Thank you, Nadia, but you really didn't have to. Maybe its just time for me to take a break and think about music in general. The last couple of months I feel more frustration than fun :(
[avatar]
We added music to "Viscious Circle"!
[avatar]
Thank you. And YES it upsets me when people write about my vocals. Guess I won't do any vocal drafts the next festivals. The comments don't help me cause they take the focus from everything I like about songwriting (composition, arrangement, production) to something I don't enjoy (singing, acting, performing) and where I'm not even good enough at. I'm tired of being put in to the wrong box.

Helsinki doesn't click with me cause I don't find myself in sparse arrangements. It's a songwriting exercise I might drop. But I'm happy people enjoyed.
[avatar]
Thank you so much, Nadia, for your sweet words on Sonny Sunshine, the song for my grandson. They really made my day! -- and I shared them with my wife and my daughter (Sonny's mum) too, and it made them very happy too.
[avatar]
You commented on lyrics for https://write.fawm.org/songs/285430 (@metalfoot) Music demo now up, same URL.
[avatar]
For some reason, your "unexpected dance" was not loaded in. I participated in the skirmish so wanted to listen to what others did with the challenge. Thought you'd want to know.
[avatar]
I'm afraid I have no emails from you and I checked my junk folder too. Winchperry@aol.com
[avatar]
Thank you for your nice comments on Worth the Wait and my sickly voice! Lol. I'm feeling better today but sound just as bad.
[avatar]
Aw, thanks so much for your kind words about my silly sourdough song! I'm about to bake the bread I started making 24 hours ago so fingers crossed it comes out as delicious as the song makes it sound LOL.
[avatar]
and thank you for creating the music that inspired those lyrics.
[avatar]
lets compromise. find a singer and if she has trouble fitting the words to the music i will help her out. i was so inspired by the music itself that i wasnt thinking consciously of how the exact melody would go..but i will happily do that in the event the singer has trouble doing so.
[avatar]
i didnt record a vocal guide, i wrote the lyric to go along rhythmically with the music, but thought it would be better for the singer to create their own melody. if you think differently, i can work on the melody. let me know what is best for you.
[avatar]
I'm away from home but still trying to participate with less tools in Montreal. So, no rush to send "Gutter Full of Tears". Whenever you have a spare moment will be fine.
[avatar]
And congratulations on the win with that last skirmish song too! 🎉🎉🎉
[avatar]
Well, well, well....I see the muse has been very kind to you. You're almost to the finish line. Fantastic. You know I'll be back for some listening and inspiration. I just wanted to swing by and see how you were holding up. I'd say pretty well.
[avatar]
Hi Nadia. You said you'd like to hear music to my "Rise" lyrics. Beth Kille did some great music if you still want to hear it. https://write.fawm.org/songs/285497
[avatar]
I was thinking I was making headway ( although all not recorded and posted) but come to your page and think "Gee, I'm really underachieving."
[avatar]
That's the way to go! I also write independently of FAWM. The community just gives me that extra kick to collaborate or try weird things
[avatar]
Thanks for your listen again! I see you're neatly done with the challenge. Wow!
[avatar]
Hi, Nadia, and thanks for your sweet comments about Ballad Of a One Hit Wonder.
[avatar]
Thanks Nadia!
[avatar]
Righto - the curly's in there too. Excellent!
[avatar]
Thanks for giving "Crumbling" a listen, Nadia. I appreciate your visit and your positive comments.
[avatar]
I'm sorry that my comment on Magical Memories was confusing! In that part, I was commenting on the words in the tarot card prompt in your liner notes, not on the excellent song you wrote. I was just trying to say that I found "moisturizing" to be a really funny word to see in the context of a tarot card!
[avatar]
Thanks for your comment on “Go ahead and say sorry”. I’m really pumped with the idea that this skirmish could be pictured in a film.
[avatar]
Thank you! Me too :)
[avatar]
Thanks Nadia! I'll be in touch!
[avatar]
Received and replied. 🙏

Yes please to the link, Nadia. x

Hey, thank you for leaving such a nice comment on "My Light In The Dark" - I really appreciate it
[avatar]
Thank you, Nadia! You are already halfway there and it's only day 4 :O
[avatar]
Great seeing you here! Have a wonderful FAWM!
[avatar]
Thank you, Nadia, for the listen and nice comment about Silver Moon & Your Kiss.
[avatar]
Happy New Musical Year to you! Thank you for your comment on the lyrics of Witch of the Willows, I have now successfully uploaded the demo.
[avatar]
All fine. Everything I upload here is free to comment. We won't be able to rerecord the vocals during FAWM that's why I uploaded. The instrumental is 80% done.
[avatar]
Thank you, Nadia! It's been a tough decision to postpone the song until I can sort of play it. I plan to replace the vocals, cause I really don't want to have my clean vocals out there anymore. I feel bad everytime I receive comments no matter if they're nice or not.
[avatar]
Ahhhh I love the whole movie that played in your mind for my song, that is so cool!! Thanks for sharing, that made my day.
[avatar]
Thankfully I didn't spill the whole glass!!

[avatar]
Hi Nadia!
[avatar]
Thanks for the greeting, Nadia. I'll be away for 10 of the 29 days, so my output will probably be a bit less. Hopefully a decent song or two will find its way out of my head. I know that your magic fingers will be successfully busy for FAWM.
[avatar]
Hi Nadia, glad to see you're here! 😀 Happy FAWM!

Hey Nadia! Hope you have a lovely FAWM!
[avatar]
Thank you! My gear is still not 100% there. Busy recovering the back up and had some cryptic messages. I hope that I get my systems running until end of next week, but I won't take FAWM as serious as the last months. Too much work in the background... I'm happy if I end up with two songs, honestly!
[avatar]
Hi, Nadia! I always look forward to hearing your beautiful work! Hope you have a FAWMtastic 2024! ♫⋆。♪ ₊˚♬ ゚
