I recorded one song PER MONTH for a full year
(This is what happened)
In 2019 I set a personal challenge – to write, record and release one song PER MONTH for a full year.
It was a real turning point in my career as a professional singer, but also a crux in my career as a voice teacher too – because it was a true learning experience as someone who wanted to “do” rather than just “teach”.
So I guess the first question you probably have is exactly WHY I would put myself through such a ridiculous ringer – the budget, the timeframe, the pressure, the stress, the expectation?
Well, that’s EXACTLY why I wanted to take this challenge.
In short, I found I was spending 12 hours a day working on other peoples voices and musical dreams – and less and less on my own.
Honestly, I just wanted to take a brief moment in time to actually be the singer and musician I trained so hard and worked so intently to become – and this was my final chance.
Approaching my late 30s, first kid on the way, my “meeting some young guys at the pub to start a band with” days long gone, I honestly felt like this was IT for me as a singer.
If I couldn’t do this one simple vocal challenge, then my days as a pro singer were done and dusted – and maybe even my career as a voice teacher.
Those that can’t do – “teach”, right? I didn’t want to be one of those guys.
I wanted to DO.
So, I did it.
Here’s the first album worth of material that I got out of the vocal challenge of writing/recording/releasing one song per month for a full year;
