I love it here. I've loved learning new instruments and meeting new people...and of course letting my muse have fun creating. My main 'instrument' is my voice, but I also play guitar, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, autoharp, steel drum, piano, flute, and a very robust cowbell.

A note on comments: I do not intend to make my living with my music, but do want to get better, so gentle constructive comments are very welcome. If there is a certain song I'm thinking I may want to do in public I will ask for serious critique on that song and hope you'll let me have it :-)

Pronouns: her/she
Nicknames because of FAWM: Princess of the Cowbell or just Princess, and Mistress Darci - from one rather suggestive collaboration in 2014.

Happy FAWMing everyone!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed "Deep Heart". It's been a bit of work and I'm happy how ot turned out 😀

Hi, Darci, I’m glad you could relate to I Call Myself A Gardener. I thought panch really captured the happy vibe I was going for. There’s something magic about a backyard garden…and we don’t have to be experts to enjoy it! Thanks for your comments.

Hi Darci. I wondered if at some point and if you have time if you'd do my Coffee in Hand?

Great!
