From 2008 through 2014, when I wasn't teaching and/or running sound for everything you can imagine happens at a performing arts center, my primary function was creating original songs to be used by various online entities.
I didn't receive much direction from the clients. I would get an email with vague requests. Write a song about money. Write a song about John Henry that also pays tribute to the ballad song form. Write about the planets in the solar system or how to count by twos. Write a song about baby frogs.
That was it, and I took it from there. Some of the tracks I did, got a bit over the top. We would stack vocals so high it would make Freddie Mercury blush.
The video below was the result of a wonderful collaboration between Lincoln Park's songwriting class and the media department. I wrote and played all the music and sand the lead vocal. I also helped out with the lyrics.
Espeically the rap section.
I'll be posting more videos and tracks on this page in the near future, but for right now I just want to get it done and posted!
