So, what’s up with all these tiny ass songs?
If you’ve been following my social media accounts for the last couple weeks you’ve seen the miniature songs I’ve been posting each day. There’s a purpose behind them. Let me tell you what’s up.
I’ve been working really hard on the standup parts of my show for the last couple years. And that focus has taken my brain away from songwriting.
While I’ve written a few things recently, they’re not anything I’m super excited about or think can compete with my previous work.
I’ve been going through this thing of really really missing writing songs but also feeling intimidated by the process of doing so because I’m out of practice. It’s the words. It’s always the words. And of course, when writing comedy music the words are kind of important.
So I was thinking about a low pressure way to put my brain back on song mode without having to worry about sustaining a premise for 2-3 minutes.
And that’s where #30SecSongs comes in. A daily song that clocks in at 30 seconds (give or take 15 seconds).
I stockpiled 150 ideas to get it going while I write the rest of them. And the plan is to put one out every day for a whole year.
Some will be funny. Some will be duds. Either way you get a little something new from me each day and I get to whip my musical mind back into shape.
Let’s see what happens!
