I think the creative muscle is healthiest if it's flexed in more than one direction. So even though I don't consider myself much of a musician, I've started writing songs.
One of the delicious benefits of this is that it's allowed me to connect with some really cool, talented musicians around the world. Here's one of my favorites from the song-a-week-for-a-year project I took on at the start of 2021, made with the uber-talented William Ax.
William is from Brazil, grew up in Ireland, and now lives in Portugal. We met in a song-a-week subreddit. So, y'know, maybe the internet isn't entirely a trash heap.
Before the song-a-week project, I had written several dozen songs.
Some were a bit silly (like THIS RIDICULOUS METH-COOKING REDNECK ONE), and some were more serious... including an album that I live-stream-Facebook-recorded at a friend's studio (HERE'S THE LINK of the performance), then posted to Bandcamp as, "Under Our Own Piece of Sky."
