"We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are." Max Depree
In 2015-2016, I did a year long recording project called The 52 Weeks Project. The idea was to record a song a week for a year, to challenge myself to actually *start somewhere* with music. I'm a singer from Minneapolis. I like humor and keeping things light-hearted, so I'm going to try to keep this blog a fun diary of my pursuit of music, with a bit of the rest of my life thrown in.
I used to be a pro photographer, for about five pretty successful years before I realized it was not what I wanted to do with my life. I was so unhappy, burned out, and was honestly beginning to think I could never find anything to make me happy. Or at least, that's what I thought I was thinking. What I was really thinking was I'd never find anything that made me as happy as music does. Eventually I stopped pretending music wasn't what I wanted to do.
Fast forward a few months to October 2015 and I began working on the 52 Weeks Project, a year long commitment to recording music just to get it out there. There were a few setbacks, starting new jobs and quitting photography officially and a few dark months of depression but I finished the project December 2016 and have since begun to write more and more music with the goal of writing and recording a record. I hope you'll stick around!
