50/90 is The FiftyNinety Challenge, the marathon of songwriting where participants attempt to write fifty songs in the ninety days between July 4th and October 1st. Songwriters test their creative mettle by trying to create a finished song in less than 2 days every day for nearly 3 months.
During these 90 days participants encourage each other, collaborate, give and gain feedback on their new creations and push themselves to practice and refine their skills in songwriting. Whether long time vets of songwriting or picking up the pen for the first time, participants will grow their skills in making music... and just might have some fun along the way.
And this is the collection of some of the better songs to come out of my "win" in the 50/90 challenge of 2011.
The goal isn't for perfection, but for completion. Of one song. Any song. And by completing just one song at a time, and sharing it with a supportive community, working towards improvement as a songwriter, as a performer and as a musician.
Each track is pay what you want (including free - with an email address) to download. The album is $5 (or more) to download to help cover the free download credits. Anything you pay here goes towards making music, including a professionally recorded, produced and mastered EP released March 2015. So give what you want, or what you can, or wherever those two meet.
