A Canadian, born in Toronto. Grew up in northern Ontario. Now live in Delft, the Netherlands.
2017: This will be my NINTH 50/90. I might not be too active this time around. Lots of editing projects on the agenda (though I can't complain).
I'll try to swing by though to post a few challenges, listen to/read what others are creating, and - I hope - throw in a handful of lyrics, maybe even with an occasional melody.
Some lyrics might already be designated, though.
I need to produce one last (the 10th and final) lyric (a ballad) for an album for one of my co-writers in England.
I'll also be working on lyrics for a punk band in Scotland. Now THAT's going to be a delightful challenge.
Wishing everyone heaps of fun & inspiration as we play in this wonderful, magical sandbox where everyone giggles and shouts and throws their songwritery toys around, and nobody gets hurt.
A few of my songs are here. They pretty much cover the waterfront in terms of genre (though punk hasn't been included yet. )
Disclaimer: Collaborations are welcome during 50-90 under the agreement they will not be considered joint works. All contributions (music/melody/lyrics) will be individually owned UNLESS other agreements are made in advance (which will include pieces being open for submission to licensing libraries for commercial use).
Thus, a composer is free to use the music for another project, post-Challenge, and - because I generally re-write my lyrics extensively - I may want to take the lyric in a different musical direction.
Also, please keep all 50-90 collaborations within 50-90 walls. If you have any questions, please PM or email me.
