This is my first 50/90 Challenge! I'm very new to songwriting, so I hope that participating in the challenge this year will help me grow a lot as an artist, in a "trial by fire" sort of way.
Some of my favorite musicians include Two Door Cinema Club, Eve, DECO*27, Franz Ferdinand, sasakure.UK, WALK THE MOON, half•alive, Police Piccadilly, Gesu no Kiwami Otome, balloon, The Jungle Giants, Yoh Kamiyama, and wowaka/hitorie.
Comments/criticisms are much appreciated - I know I have a lot of learning to do, so any insights from more experienced ears are going to be super valuable in helping me figure out what works and what doesn't.
Finding the right chords to go with a melody is something I really struggle with, especially since I don't play any real-life instruments (though I am currently learning guitar!) so hopefully I'll be able to grow this skill in particular over the course of the challenge. I'll likely be doing a lot of beginner experimentation with virtual instruments, guitar, and maybe kalimba. In the past I've done a lot of covers with synthesized vocals (using the UTAU software specifically) so I'm sure those will make an appearance as well.
I'm looking forward to writing alongside all of you!
