RPM project 2009(2009)
These songs represent a quick and dirty living room recording session which took place over a few days in late February at the “Hail-famous” address, 1615 Willow St. We were trying to complete an amateur album of 10 songs for the Record Production Month (RPM) challenge hosted by The Scope newspaper of St John's, Newfoundland. Some of these songs have been hibernating in my subconscious for years, while others were forced out for the occasion. The end result: raw yet textured compositions and hastefully written lyrics that in process became necessarily, if not uncomfortably, honest. We had fun. Now we are done. And we can listen. Check back as more songs are added!
