A different kind of challenge

DSC03133

It was last year that I posted about the importance of SUSDAT – Show Up, Sit Down, & Type (or paint, or compose… or whatever). Having a regular rhythm is especially important as an independent… well, anything! I think so many artists, bloggers, musicians would agree – the practice of regularity provides focus, inspires creativity and most importantly becomes a useful tool in developing as a musician, writer or creator.

A few weeks ago, Ben and I decided to take this idea of regularity and turn it into more than just writing or composing – which is normal practice for us. Instead, we set ourselves a challenge to release a live cover version of one song each week on Youtube, which we release every Monday.

There are lots of reasons behind why we chose to do this. The main one being – we want to continually challenge ourselves to develop and improve on what we are doing, and singing live cover songs in one take, in our own style – with no room for mistake-fixes or autotuning(!)  – is quite a challenge (for me anyway).  So here I am –  embracing this challenge fully and in doing so, also feeling quite vulnerable…

Here are our the tracks from the last 3 weeks – all different in genre, style and well… see for yourself…

There you have it!

If you have any suggestions for songs we should cover – let me know by leaving a comment below! I’d love to hear your suggestions. Oh…and if you follow us by subscribing on Youtube – you won’t miss a single #MondayCover!
