My photographer and perpetual traveller friend Taylor told me to check out Andrew, a songwriter taking song requests at SongsToWearPantsTo.com. You can make either a "free request" or a "paid request". Andrew reads all free requests and writes 1:11 songs for the ones that interest him most. He guarantees to fulfill all paid requests for $40-400 based on length, subject, genre, and deadline.
Kinda interesting. I love the "free request" idea…it’s fun for readers, but also a blast for the songwriter. There’s no need to impress with a fully-structured, well thought-out and arranged composition. Just pump out some audio when you’re inspired…that’s what all songwriters should be doing anyway, no? (..as my guitar slowly gathers dust, sigh)
Fun stuff, and a great idea. Where do the pants come in? I have no idea.]]>
