Song A Week
So after the release of 'Selected Demos 2002-2009' I've been trying to work out what I'm actually gonna do next, and after some thought I've decided to take on a similar project to US solo artist Jonathan Coulton, if you don't know who he is then check him out here.
Jonathan worked as a Software Developer until 2005 when he quit his day job and started a project called "Thing A Week" in which he released a new song every week via his website. That's exactly what I'm going to be doing. I'm not intending to quit my job though, I actually enjoy what I do for a living plus my time management skills and strong British work ethic mean I'm capable of holding down a day job AND being creative ;-).
Anyway, the format is fairly simple one new song every Friday for one year starting Friday, 1st Jan 2010
Some guy by the name of David Cornthwaite thought it would be a good idea to try and skateboard all the way accross Australia, and someone else thought it would be a good idea to make a documentary about it. Now, this is a hard thing to do and if you wanna do it right you're gonna need some quality tunes playing in the background to make you look good doing it. Luckily the documentary maker Peter Coventry had the sense to get in contact with me and I sorted him out with a selection of my most wicked music to date, for more info on this incredible feat head over too www.boardfree.co.uk.
