The 4th Annual Songwriting Challenge

Well, it’s that time again.

It’s my unique honor to present to you the fourth compilation of songs produced from our annual songwriting Challenge. I’m truly and deeply humbled by the time and energy that all of the artists put in here in creating 59(!) new and original songs.

This project was spawned from a time in my life where I was still recovering from a fog of depression and needed something positive to work on and look forward to. It’s with that in mind that the songwriting challenge will always benefit various mental health/arts charities and this year every penny raised will go to the National Suicide Prevention Lifelife in honor of Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington and anyone who has struggled with/ultimately succumbed to these harmful thoughts/ideations. The 4th Annual 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge is now available as a pay-what-you-want for individual tracks and all 58.

I would like to use this space to thank all of the artists that have participated in this challenge over the years and in this iteration. Also, big thanks to Jon Stewart who plays the drums and totally has a van.

Also, piggybacking off of what I said above, if you find yourself feeling down or depressed/anxious and would like to find something positive to work on, hit me up – speakimge@gmail.com – let’s do some cool stuff and help others in the process.

Stream the heck out of the 4th Annual 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge below and mark your calendars for October 20th, 2018 for the 5th!
