At its best, music brings people together and preserves the memory of those involved. The "365 Songs for 365 People" project is empowered by this dynamic. Since I was a kid, I've always enjoyed writing little ditties. Most of the time, I just write ridiculous ones for friends and my long-suffering partner Kate. I've decided to use this ridiculous skill to create a sort of "musical experiment" that involves everyone from friends to family to strangers.
So consider becoming involved. I've started a Kickstarter for the project. The funds raised will go to purchasing basic recording equipment (something I've always wanted but have never been quite able to get), which I will to use to continue projects such as this, along with songwriting efforts in general.

After donating $5 or more dollars, the particpant(s) will email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Via this email, participants will give some info/describe an important (or not important!) memory of theirs, which will become the fodder for the song. Participants will have their name put on a card, which will be emailed to them on the day before their song is posted. I will also have a copy of each person's respective card to keep track. One song will be posted each day to soundsgoodsongs.com, www.stovepipestover.com, and also to stovepipestover.bandcamp.com.
First song will be posted on January 1st, 2015 and continue to the end of the year. I will be using the time remaining of 2014 to get a head start so get your info to me!
Let's get started!"
Risks and challenges
I have looked hard at my own personal schedule, work schedule, resources, etc. In light of these obstacles, I have made for myself a schedule for writing the songs, recording them, and, most importantly getting them out to you and the world. If a setback arrives, each person will be informed and a new deadline date for the respective "song packages" will be set. But I'll work tirelessly to ensure that this is all done according to schedule. I will take the remainder of 2014 to get a "jump start" on the project. I will also post mini "update" videos to show you some progress.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
