UPDATE: If you’ve dropped by this page recently, my “song a week” project was successfully completed in May 2011. You can read my final post on it here.
On 3 May, 2010, I decided to challenge myself as a songwriter. Below is the blog post I wrote that day about my “song a week” project. Have a read, take a listen, and join me on this journey. If you like what you hear, please leave a comment. Thank you!
“I’ve been thinking about what to do with this blog, and I’ve finally come up with an idea that really excites me.
You know, songwriting is my main passion in life. I feel I have so much inside me that I want to share with everyone, and there’s nothing I love more than sitting down with my guitar and crafting music and words into a song. The satisfaction than I get from performing my own songs to a live audience is beyond words. Sometimes, however, it gets hard to find the time to write… and songwriting I feel is a stream of creation that flows faster and stronger the more you give. My work so far has been a mere trickle.
It’s time to change that.
For one year, starting today, I will post one new original song on this blog every week. That means by the end of the week, you can expect to see either a video or mp3 uploaded here, with lyrics of course. I already have several videos on my YouTube channel, but these don’t count. Each song will be a completely new creation.
This is my challenge to myself… not easy I know, but it’s going to be fun!
What will I write about? The sky’s the limit. I’m open to suggestions, too 😉
Wish me luck!”
