gwynjones


I've been writing, performing, recording and releasing songs and music since my teens. I write some songs by myself but I also like to collaborate.
I have a small home studio where I do what I do and I am usually there for at least a part of most days.
My background is primarily in Country, Rockabilly and Folk but not exclusively so.
I appreciate any comments or suggestions on my posts and I hope to contribute constructively to what other people post.
I think the most important part of creating music is to have fun while you're doing it and not to get too hung up about it because with any luck, there'll be another song along soon!
Have a great 50/90 2022 everyone!

Hi Gwyn. belated thanks for your comment on Prelude 0822. Yes, there should have been more but Life got in the way!

[avatar]

Thanks so much Gwyn!

[avatar]

Hey, Gwyn - thanks so much for listening to so many of my songs over the past few months. Your encouragement really means a lot to me. I was especially excited that you liked Every Dance That Daddy Played and Workingman's Freud. It's so much fun to have ideas for songs, and then find ways to bring them into the world.

[avatar]
@donna

Thank you for your lovely comment on 'I Want to Go Back'. Much appreciated.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank for your comment on "Deep Heart", Gwyn. It means a lot to me πŸ˜€

[avatar]

Hey, Gwyn - Thanks so much for listening to Jeff's Music is a Workingman's Freud. I'm so glad you liked it. I'm loving your songs, and looking forward to listening to lots more.

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn!

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn!

[avatar]

Oddly enough the whole phone lights in a stadium thing was exactly what I was aiming for. Thanks for the kind words. There is some awesome talent on here, yourself included.

[avatar]

thnaks for your comments on goodby jean-lu. i did have woody guthrie in mind, somthing like the glamorized outlae ballads like pretty boy floyd..but ive played deportee so many times, its dust
has probably settled permenantly in my lungs

[avatar]

Gwyn, It means a lot that you enjoyed Bye, Bye, Prima Donna. I was quite taken with Cheslain's treatment of the lyrics. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Look at how many songs you have! You're going to blow through 50 any day now!

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'Alone'!

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks, you comment on "Quarterlife Blues" means a lot to us. It's my 2nd blues on the guitar (I'm a newbie) but David rocked awesome solo and licks! So happy about Andreas lyrics, too!

[avatar]

Ah, Gwyn, thanks so much for the Rotten Roses comment. Means a lot coming from a master of the genre. I'm assuming entry into the Country Club also means my Stetson and cowboy boots are in the post ;)

@jeff9

Thanks, man, for the nice comment on "Lingers On".

@sbs2018

Thank you so much for your appreciation of β€œOne Night in Vegas Version 2.”

@jeff9

Thanks for those mighty kind words for I Love Your Eyes, Gwyn. Very encouraging.

[avatar]

Go for it mate!

@oswlek

Glad you enjoyed @richaaaay 's terrific "Cerulean Blues", Gwyn. And I appreciate the tip of the cap to my meager contribution. πŸ˜€

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Gwyn, for taking a listen to A Second Look.

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn for your nice comments. It looks like you're pretty prolific as well!

[avatar]
@sbs2018

Thank you for your kind comments on my songs, especially appreciating the quirky lyrics of β€œDancing with Travolta.”

[avatar]

Gwyn, Thanks for the comments on Criminy, Jake. I thought Tuesday really captured the vibe of what I was looking for. Glad you noticed the song, because my page is feeling like a ghost town! :)

[avatar]

πŸ’“

[avatar]

Well, don't you have a way with words! Thanks for your "flowery" comments on I Call Myself a Gardener. I think @panch did a great job with it, and if you'll pardon the pun, the song grows on me the more I listen. πŸ˜€

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn. Thought you might like it :)

[avatar]

You have to hear my new song with Jeff! https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/7935#c23119

[avatar]

Gwyn, So nice of you to comment on the lyrics to The Movie in My Mind. I'm eager to hear the song, as well. It may be a while yet, but definitely during 5090. Thanks!

[avatar]

Thank you Gwyn for your wonderful comment on Hampton Court. I too think that Henry VIII didn't write Greensleeves. The song always fascinates me and I often think about his love to Anne Boleyn and how tragically it all ended. The challenge made me think of their love story again. Thank you for listening. I appreciate your comment and support.

[avatar]

Gwyn, Thanks for your generous praise on Night Comes For Everyone. Means a lot, coming from you.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Gwyn--for dropping in for a listen to Workaholic Country Blues and for your nice comments.

@sbs2018

Thank you so much, Gwyn, for your appreciation of my Laurie Anderson style songs, which I just kinda stumbled upon. Had so much fun!

[avatar]

Jazz Joni🎷oh, yes!! Thanks Gwyn. What a smile 🎢

[avatar]

Gwyn, thanks for the compliments on The Movie In My Mind. I am really looking forward to hearing this in a few weeks.

[avatar]

Hi Gwyn, thank you so much for your gorgeous comments.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thank you, Gwyn!

[avatar]

Thank you for the encouraging feedback on "I'll Dance Alone" and "With You, My Friend" I appreciate you checking them out!

[avatar]

Thanks for such great comments!

[avatar]

thank you for all your listening and comments. i treasure them all. about the last train to broadway. the story is true but some of the places have been given different names and a few details have been changed. also, i have given myself a different personality than my own.

[avatar]

Yes, tomorrow sounds good. Thanks

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn. Yin and Bang sounds amazing! Really fun. :) And the addition of the 'Uh!' bit is inspired.

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn. Alex did a great job with my lyrics!

[avatar]

Thanks for the note on Yin and Bang. Look forward to hearing it on Soundcloud!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you so much for the kind words about @greengrassgirl and my Christmas number.

[avatar]

Oh, Gwyn, thanks so much for your comments on Santa's Only Son. Glad you liked the different take on the holiday. For me, Christmas songs are the hardest to write, so I'm very pleased that you like it. And I was delighted when Jeff offered to compose the music and sing it, especially in a style he is so good at. Thank you.

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn. It's so hard.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on my Yin and Bang lyrics. Excited to see what you come up with

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'Under Desert Skies', my collab with Simon.

[avatar]

I would love that! Thanks!

[avatar]
@atitlan

Thanks for your generous comment on what was just a throwaway challenge track. The Buchla plugin can go back to gathering dust now.

[avatar]

Hi Gwyn,
Andrea namechecked you in relation to my Yin and Bang lyrics, specifically around the Elvis link. Not sure how easy the lyrics would be to turn into a song but if you fancy having a go with it then let me know!
Simon

[avatar]

Thanks a lot for your kind comments on Bubbles and Almost You :) πŸ™πŸ»

[avatar]

thank you for your views on the nothing to say vocals. after a few more listens, i knew you were right. for the new version, i recorded a new vocal track that works much better.

[avatar]
@sbs2018

Thank you so much for your comment on my collab for β€œAn Incredible Journey.”

[avatar]

Hi, Gwyn, Thanks for your nice comment on Bonnie & Clyde. It brought me back here to your page, where I see I have a lot of listening to get caught up on. Soon, I hope! You are very prolific!---And may I add, "Very Good!" πŸ˜€

[avatar]

Hey, thanks so much for listening to Wrestling with the Beast. It was so much fun to sing. I'd love to get to hear you and/or @jibbidy34 do that song, or any other song that I've sketched out. You guys are such a great team.

[avatar]
@crisp1

Thanks for your encouraging comments on Marco Polo and You Can't Go Home Again!

[avatar]

i pulled the vocals back in nothing to say because i felt they interfered with the music. my intention was to fold them into the music so that they would be there like a secondary lead instrument.

[avatar]

Gwyn, Thanks for your generous praise on Come Back. I am very pleased (understatement alert!) with what David did with these lyrics. I'm so glad you liked the song. Thanks!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Gwyn, for your generous comments about a couple of my countrified offerings. So gratifying to see that stuff in those styles can sometimes connect with folks on your side of the ocean. Very impressed with your own quality output this round.

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks for the very kind comments on my collaboration with @jeff9, I'm Always on the Defense . He brought my lyrics to life with his wonderful country style and amazing vocals. As @tjeff has already pointed out, you mistyped the correct jeff as collaborator.

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks for the very lovely comment on my collaboration with @jeff9 . He brought the lyrics to life with his wonderful country style and amazing vocals.

[avatar]
@tjeff

Hi Gwyn - you might wanna go back and edit your comment on I'm Always on Defense. Andrea wrote that with a different Jeff (jeff9).

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you, Gwyn, for the encouraging comments about my collab with @cindyrella on Vibrant Green Heaven.

@aneil

Thanks so much for listening wow ! You have so many songs already. Thx for your interaction

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn. He did a great job.

[avatar]

Gwyn, What a compliment on You Take Me There! I liked your description "an unplugged version of a major hit." Thanks.

[avatar]

Hi! I'd be honored to have you but music to it! Looking forward to hearing it

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment @gwynjones sending My Greeting's and kisses to your Twin as Appreciation for your kind comment

Wow, this is a nice way to start my day! Thanks so much! Please use my full name on SC; Andrea Brennan

Thanks Gwyn!

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks for your comments on When I Had it All. I truly appreciate it. I have some lyrics I would like to collaborate on if you have time. I posted them in FAWM (Full Throttle Ahead). I had a couple takers, but nothing had panned out. I love your music and I think you would be a great fit. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks :)

[avatar]
@marthie

Thank you for listening!

[avatar]

Nope! Ms Rice wasn't anywhere to be heard! The female choir is singing "Rejoice!" in Ukrainian (Raduisya!)

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on my 'When the cats are on the prowl' lyrics. Very encouraging to hear. I had great fun writing it

[avatar]

she does sound like my daughter estrella on that first verse. i wonder if its coincidental or on purpose.

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn!

[avatar]

I'm so happy with how Working All the Time turned out. If you ever find you're in the market for another set of lyrics, I'd love to apply. I can always send you three possibilities and see if any of them move you.

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind words!

[avatar]

Gwen, So glad you liked Kate's and my collab on But I Did. I was blown away by her treatment of the lyrics. What a great experience for a writer. Thank you!

[avatar]

Wow. I love your rendition of "Working All The Time" so much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Let's create a new song artifact, rather than replace the recording in the old one to limit confusion. Do you want to add the new song, and I'll add the lyrics? If not, I'll create it.

[avatar]

Yes. Yes. Yes. Can’t wait to hear what you make of Working All the Time. Let me know if you need anything.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Appreciate the kind words about "Cranky Old Men". Gotta laugh to keep from cryin' sometimes.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks a lot for listening and commenting! I'm glad you enjoyed πŸ˜€

[avatar]

thanks for the kind comment on "Look Sharp!"

[avatar]

Thanks for all your great comments!

[avatar]

Hi Gwyn, thanks for your comment on Nothing Special, it means a lot. It's been a slow start for me but there is more on the way.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for your kind words 😊 Using MIDI ist just a workaround for songwriting. I don't feel well producing final versions with fake instruments. Unfortunately I'm not a good instrumentalist which is why I collab a lot. If I don't find people, these drafts will never be final.

[avatar]

Gwyn, Thank you for your comments on Memories are Everywhere. I appreciate your taking the time.

[avatar]

haha thanks Gwyn :)

[avatar]
@geoff61

Thanks for your comment Gwyn on Goodnight Mumma., I must say you are cracking along this 50/90.

[avatar]

Thanks Gwyn. I'm glad he is too. :)

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind comment in the Lyrics to My son

[avatar]

Hi, Gwyn, I was so happy to see your comments on Broken. Thank you! I agree that David really nailed it. I don't think he knows how to do something half-heartedly! And look at YOU with all your great songs! What a powerhouse!

[avatar]

Roddy did good huh? Thanks for listening

[avatar]
@jeff9

Hi, Gwyn, and thanks so much for the comments on I'm Not Sick. That lyric is heartbreaking but irresistible not to sing.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for your comment! Plot twist: Every guitar you hear on that song is my nylon acoustic. I don't own an electric yet.

[avatar]

Okay. Thanks for your reply!

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on. Same Movie, Different War. Yes, that lyric hit me like a brick. And I am sad. I can make quilts to give to the refugees coming to our community, a token gesture.

[avatar]

Hey, I wrote this duet. Wondered if you and Georgie might be able to do it? https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1150

[avatar]

@gwyn, Thanks for your comments on our 3-way collab: Baby, What About Me. I can always count on Georgie to get to the heart of a lyric, and JoeyMcMichael's backing track gave her a nice platform to show off that country side of her. Looks like you have an impressive start on 5090 so far! When do you have time to eat and sleep? :)

[avatar]

Great! TY

[avatar]

Hey there. Wondered about this? https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/786

[avatar]

Thanks for l your wonderful comments!

[avatar]

Hi David, good to see you here! I've not out anything up yet, but hoping to, maybe we can collaborate again. Have a good 5090!

[avatar]

David, please do - post your recording of "Where The Lonesome Cowboys Ride". I'm sure all will enjoy the listen.

[avatar]

David, ref "Where The Lonesome Cowboys Ride".. You really came across with that "high-lonesome" cowboy sound. I like it & thanks for recording it....Larry

[avatar]

Hey, Gwyn...Nice to see you back here. Thanks for the comment on I Hate Love.I hope we can do some songs together again this time around.
