A couple of years ago I wrote a 30 second song as a writing challenge with The Ignition Lab, a group of songwriters I got together with to write. The goal was to come up with a short song that could be used in a TV commercial. I ended up writing something I thought could be used for a home improvement store. I revisited the song again this year and tweaked it a bit. You can see the video on my RLW YouTube page.
Thanks for listening.
Until next week.
“I’ll Take You Away” by Rachel Lee Walsh
Thanks for joining me for the second week of Fifty-Two in Fifty-Two. I dug out an original song I wrote two years ago titled “I’ll Take You Away”. I love pulling out old songs like this and getting to see what inspired my writing at the time. I wrote “I’ll Take You Away” during a crazy cold winter season in New York City when I was ready to escape city life. Playing the song and looking back like this made me laugh a little, particularly now that I live in the sunny burbs of Northern California and barely have to wear a sweater in January. Check out the video on my RLW YouTube Page.
Thanks for listening. See you next week.
Hello and Happy New Year. In 2013, I completed a project with 5 other songwriters called “The Ignition Lab”. We were each looking for motivation and a creative approach to getting new songs written so we started the challenge of writing a new song each week and posting them online. Yes, 52 new songs in 52 weeks! For 2016, I’m revisiting the idea of 52 songs in 52 weeks as a solo project. Each week I will be posting either a new original song, an interpretation of another musicians song, or a new performance of one of my old songs. You can follow the whole year of songs right here or on my personal YouTube page.
