A few weeks back, we announced our intentions to curate a 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge across our beloved home state of New Jersey. Speak Into My Good Eye is now proud to divulge the details of this great cultural endeavor with all of the proceeds set to benefit the Monmouth County Arts Council.
On Saturday, September 20th, we invite anyone who may be interested, whether in a formal band or not, to submit to a large compilation of original music with the conception, writing, recording, and finishing of one single done in one day. Additionally, Speak Into My Good Eye will be commissioning a documentary project to record individual artists in different phases of their own processes over the entirety of the 24 hours.
To submit to be a part of the compilation, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and for consideration to be included in the documentary, e-mail the same address with your preferred time and two back ups. The more flexible the time-frame, the likelier we’ll be able to include you.
Chris and myself are absolutely ecstatic about digging in and really bringing out the best of what our great state has to offer, and we hope you’ll join us in helping to make this dream come true. Our initial response a few weeks ago added up into the hundreds, but that doesn’t mean we’re closing up entries. We want as many artists on this compilation as possible. It will be made available in whole with a pay what you want model, again, with all proceeds benefitting the Monmouth County Arts Council.
We look forward to working with each and every one of you in making this a reality, and we hope to hear from you at email@example.com. Spread the word!
