So I decided I need to do something more with music, and I want it to be an ongoing project, something that will keep me thinking creatively. I’ve considered the rock-opera / folk-opera, but I’m just not sure I can pull that off. (I did write one in high school, but we won’t talk about that.) I’ve wanted to write more, though, and what better way to start my 28th year than with a song project?

Butch Hancock had his tape-of-the-month, Paleo had The Song Diary, so why not? It’s fairly reasonable to assume someone (in this case, me) could write and record one song a week. Of course, four a month and fifty-two a year sounds a bit more intimidating. But one week at a time.

The first song is written and will be recorded and available by saturday. Then I’ll be down to fifty-one! Unless I decide to keep the project going, but don’t get your hopes up.
