QOTD : Finding time to write music

February 7, 2011 | 11 Comments

As you may have noticed, my posting hasn’t been as regular as usual. In fact, I haven’t even had a chance to check out the changes that were completed last week on the collaboration project!

Getting to the song title or chorus ASAP

December 29, 2010 | No comments yet

Hey everyone, hope your holidays are going well. With all the hubbub these past few weeks, I haven’t had much time to write music. The other day however, I got to record a bit with some friends which was a refreshing change from my normal work week. Yesterday, I sat down to polish a couple of my own songs, and it got me thinking about the phrase “Don’t bore us, get to the chorus!” (I often get cerebral with songwriting when I’m not in a particularly inspired mood).

Ok, we are a go! Participation for this project is closed, and I’ve sent out invitations to the Dropbox account to everyone who showed interest. If you missed out on this project, we’ll get you on the next one. Hopefully this will all work out awesome, and will be the start of a cool collaborative community.

Collaborating (& announcing a new collaborative project with you!)

October 28, 2010 | 11 Comments

A couple nights ago, I had the opportunity to attend a small songwriting session with two likeminded individuals. As a guy who mostly sits in his studio, writing solo, it was inspiring. Joe Gilder has talked about just getting the song done, but I’m a super procrastinator and it’s pretty hard to finish them without having a hard deadline or being accountable to anyone else.
