What is Project 2020?
12 months – 12 songs. It’s as simple as that!
Every month in 2020 I will write, record and release a new song.
At the end of 2020 I’ll have the whole year summed up in 12 songs, which I intend to gather in an album that I’m going to call “Millennial’ (now the zeroes on the balloons make more sense, right?) I’ll put in it my experiences, my thoughts and feelings as a millennial.
Why am I doing this?
Because I can 🙂 But more importantly, to push myself. More often than I would like, daily life gets in the way and I don’t get much time to sit down and write new music. This project will force me to make time!
How can you get involved?
The songs will be out on the 15th of each month on Spotify and on SoundCloud, so maybe follow me there? 🙂
If you’d like to support my project, get access to behind the scenes and physical copies of the CD with all 12 songs at the end of the project, you can do so on Patreon
My music is free to listen to on YouTube (and always will be), so enjoy!
Song #1, January – “Maze”
Here it is, the first song of Project 2020
I wrote this song as I was going through some changes in my personal life.
Before the year ended, I left my part time job in a school and started another job – my first full-time, 9-5 job. I had managed to avoid this, until this point. Suddenly, I was an adult
…an adult with less time to do music.
So I promised myself that I won’t allow myself to become tired by my new job and slowly but surely give up on my dream. Everyone had to have jobs before they could afford to make a living out of their art.
Hence, Project 2020. If I write and record a song a month, there’s no way I’m going to let this go! I might even be more productive than before.
As mentioned before, my previous job was in a school, working with special needs students. I took it on because I needed a job, but, before I knew it, I started to like working with children and became interested in their stories, their wishes, their dreams in the making. I wrote this song as a good bye to everyone at the school. Wish I had more time to tell you/to teach you/to guide you – and wish I had someone to guide me, into this unknown scary future.
The future is a maze for all of us, “a complicated pattern of twists and turns of fate”. Let’s discover it one step at a time, and while at it, enjoy the journey.
