Secret songwriting project 2010

Given all the activity around here involving Explone and Kirby Krackle, you might think that I've gone and dumped the whole singer-songwriter thing in favor of being a four-string sideman.

Ack! Thppt! Wrong!

In fact, I am working on a secret third project, co-writing songs with a talented friend. Some of you reading already know this. To you I say: shhh!

I don't want to give away too much, since we only started a few weeks ago. But I will say that it's some of the most meticulous songwriting I've done in a long while. We're jointly working on lyrics and melodies, and sometimes it feels like teaming up on a tricky crossword puzzle, trying to fit just the right words with just the right syllables to just the right rhythm, and pushing each other to do it better.

I don't think I've ever worked so hard on songs before and I feel obligated to step up my game.

The ultimate goal thus far is to get into a studio sometime this summer. In the meantime, I'll be dropping hints on this site leading up to the release of this project. Here's your first:
