FAWM Update

So today brings the end of my February album writing month challenge (FAWM). I didn’t quite get to 14 songs, but I did get a lot more done than I thought possible and I really enjoyed working on the songs. So here’s what I did get done:

1) Your Code Name is Jonah: Main vocal melody, chords and arrangement, pre-chorus and chorus lyrics written, bunch of verse ideas which need tidying up.

2) The Capital club: Concept/plot, main chords, vocal melody and chorus lyrics written.

3) Empathy Drains: All done, demo recorded just needs tidying up.

4) Unexploded: Arrangement, verses and bridge lyrics written (I already had rest of song)

5) We Breathe: Finished just needs recording (I already had chords and main hook)

6) The Clock Changer: Concept/plot, chords and general style/arrangement done, some lyrics.

7) Feel The Burn: Finished just needs recording, was originally going to be a guitar tune put may change to piano for recording.

8) The Girl Who Named Pluto: Main vocal melody, chords and arrangement, chorus and outro lyrics written, bunch of verse ideas which need tidying up.

9) Right Hand Man: Main vocal melody, chords and arrangement, chorus and some verse lyrics.

10) Flight 305 (The Tale of DB Cooper): Finished just needs recording.

I’ll share the demo of “Empathy Drains” in the next couple of days then will post the others as I record them.

FAWM 2017

FAWM is February Album Writing Month! Every year I think about doing this, so finally I’ve signed up to try and write 14 songs in the 28 days of February. You can keep track of my progress here:

Rise Bailey Rise – FAWM 2017

I keep an Evernote document on my phone of new song title ideas which I add to all the time so I’ve picked a selection of these to work on. I’ll also use it as an opportunity to work on a few ideas which I have had for a while bouncing round my head. It will be a mix of full lyrical songs and instrumentals and I’ll hopefully get some of my musical buddies involved too along the way.

Gigs this week…

So after hiding in the studio for the last 9 months I’ll be doing a couple of gigs this week. Friday night I’ll be supporting my buddies Rusty G’s at the Craufurd Arms, Wolverton for their album launch. Then on Saturday I’ll be supporting the excellent Dan Walder for his solo album launch at The Cannon in Newport Pagnell.

The new EP “Four of Four” really is on its way, 2 weeks ago I was lucky enough to get Nicole Collarbone in the studio to record the cello on my track “Spaces” so I’m pretty much done now. I’ll keep you posted
