I have an idea that I would like to share with you. On the current album there is a song, which is the tittle track of the album. It is a song that is close to my heart. I would even go as far as saying it is a selfish song 😉 I wrote it about my self, I wrote it to release some of my feelings based in self-doubt, guilt and the need to justify my existence. Sound kind of deep, I know… But sometimes us songwriters need to exercise our own demons.
But the more I thought about the song, the more I sang it, the more I realised how universal the subject of the song actually is. I recorded and posted the song itself in a simple acoustic form HERE.
Now for the album I would like to try something I haven’t done before. I would like to get some of my fellow artists to join me singing the chorus. And I would like you to do this from your own computer. How? Let me tell you how 😉
Have you ever heard of Melosity? Melosity is a new Irish startup, that only went live with their website last month. Basically it is an online recording software. And I thought what would be a better way to put it to the test than try to collaborate with as many people as possible. Basically I am looking people to sing backing vocals on the chorus, more the merrier.
And just for the sake of clarity, and I hate that I even need to say this, but I do, you will do this from the goodness of your heart. I will hold the sole rights to the recording. I would love you to collaborate with me, but if it is money you are after, this is not a gig for you. So far my albums barely break even, and for me to make profit out of any of these will take a long time. But even more so, I want this song to be a labour of love, not paid employment. You will be credited for the work on my blog and if I end up printing physical copies of the album, your name will be mentioned in the album notes. I hope you understand what I am trying to say here. If you do and still want to be part of it, read on.
What you need to do is head over to www.melosity.com and register an account with them. Then drop me an Email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know you want to be part of it and I will in get back to you with further instructions 🙂
I am hoping we can make something beautiful together 🙂
