Big deal right? How hard is it to hit a post button over and over? Well, in this case, these two amazingly talented songwriters are collaborating on songs in public. The day started with Scott posting a text snippet and the song grew from there. Thirteen and a half hours later, the first song was done. Two guitars, two voices, multiple harmonies … hell, the thing even has a harmonica solo! And now, as I type this, the two crazy kids are working on song number two.
Oh, and they’re 2630.6 miles apart, collaborating via email and instant messages. I’ve been a part of many a band that couldn’t get it together when were all in the same room. This? This is phenomenal.
And if all that wasn’t enough, they’ve raised almost a thousand dollars for Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which supports music education in underserved schools nationwide.
Here’s to the two bestest, brightest, bravest songwriters I know. Bravo!
