NJ 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge

Hi everybody (hey Dr. Nick)! Don’t know where the time went, but summer’s over and we’re now less than a week out from the inaugural NJ 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge. Everybody that has expressed interest in contributing a song, we’ll be checking up on you throughout the day.

As stated earlier, the larger compilation while be made available with the pay what you want model. All proceeds will be donated to the Monmouth & Ocean County Arts Council. We’re hoping to have the official launch party at Asbury Lanes on 10/17 for the awesome The Orwells/Skaters show. Mark your calendars.

I have a spreadsheet with all interested parties including:

If you would like to be added to this list, please e-mail by no later than 6pm Wednesday, 9/17. For those who have expressed interest in being included in the documentary, here’s what I’ll ask. My original grandiose vision of how it may be produced has been limited just a tad as I had several key electronics break over this past weekend (don’t ask).

So my two headed beast of a film crew is now down to myself and a few contributors filming as one team. If you’re able to find someone to film a bit on you or produce something yourself, then I can guarantee it will make the larger film. If that’s not possible then I will do my best to accommodate everyone as much as possible. A lot of time request overlap has been submitted, so look for an e-mail asking how we might best be able to sort things out.

Other than all that, I really can’t wait to see what Saturday yields. If you need to get in touch with anything at all,

Stay frosty,
