The end of June has come, but Song A Day will never cease! Thanks again to everyone for their continued support. Here are some closing thoughts:
I'm not sure I can fully describe what this month has meant to me. I have a feeling I'll need some time to digest everything and then I'll look back and have a much clearer picture. It's July 1st today. I can say with certainty that I have grown a lot musically...that I've learned so much from the friends that I brought on board with your help. I can say with certainty that I love the songs we made together...that it's going to be difficult culling them and figuring out what goes on the album! I can say with certainty that I'm sad to see this month end...that in a perfect world, I could do Song A Day collaboratively for the rest of my life. Alas, the end of June has come, but Song A Day will never cease!

Hey there! Just a friendly update from your neighborhood-ly song a day guy! We're smack dab in the middle of the month of June. 15 songs, 15 days and I'm still going strong! I'm also exhausted! Wow!
So, this video contains two things:
1. News that I'm sending out the first rewards! Those that gave $100 or above all get a polaroid a week! We're a little behind, but here they come! Everyone will get their rewards! As I've pointed out in the past, I'm terrible at logistics. But I'm doing my best!
2. My brother-in-law, Justin, has been out with us and filming out fun! He's been releasing really great little short docu-type things each day. Cool! I've included one here.
