The Project Will Begin Soon…

by on Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

I’m working out the kinks in the site design and making sure that all my ducks are in a row. Once I start this project, I don’t want to be interrupted for stupid technical reasons!

I should also mention that in addition to posting audio for each of the songs here, I will also post lyrics (if there are any), as well as what instruments I used, and other little amusing/unnecessary details. I may also post some videos of the process if I’m so inclined…

Look for the first of the 30 songs to go up in the next few days!

What is This, You Ask?

CJHello everyone, and welcome to!

I’m CJ- singer, guitarist and songwriter. If you have found this site, you probably either know me personally, or know me as the singer in Atlanta band A Fight to the Death. I currently have a bit of spare time away from AFTTD (our drummer had an accident and is unable to play for a month), and I plan to use that time to get this little project going.

I plan to write and record 30 songs in 30 days – one each day. These songs will range in length, style, instrumentation, and certainly in quality. Some I will record in my home studio, others I’ll record on my iphone in my backyard. I might record myself playing my 1980s Casio keyboard in the shower. I might overdub 16 tracks of nothing but xylophone. Either way, each day I’ll have a new song that will sound nothing like the music that I usually perform with A Fight to the Death.

Each of these songs will be available here at after I finish it. For free, of course.

Now here’s the kicker: once my 30 days are over, I will cordially invite other songwriters to take the reigns and do a project of their own. My hope is that this site will provide not only a challenge to me and other writers, but will also provide listeners with a month-long virtual audio diary of a performer’s life.
