Hi. I'm Sam.

I started songwriting again in 2022, so this is my first 50/90.

I used to be in bands and just played whatever no one else was playing, but gave it up after nothing panned out. After a friend and I were talking, they told me that "All you need to be a songwriter is a guitar and a little pain," and I realized I had both.

Looking to write a rough, one-take-through, DAW-less song nearly everyday until the end of 50/90, meet other songwriters, and challenge myself to keep moving. I'm starting a little late (July 26th), but I'm going to give it my best shot!

Songs (37):

@miga

no problem. Although I know there was one other link with the same issue - I just don't remember which one it was! If I stumble across it again I'll leave you a note. Now to listen to that song...

Hey, thanks so much for your continued listening of my songs. I really appreciate it. Hope you've had a great 50/90, and good luck with the final days of it :)

thank you. :)

Thanks for all your comments and feedback, it is greatly appreciated:)

Thank you so much (again) for your kind words. I've been working for the past 17 months on a project WK100, and "album" of my 100 best and favorite songs from 16 years of songwriting. These are final, I hope, mixes, looking for critical ears. If all goes well give some health issues, I hope to be ready to put the bow on the collection and "release" it (ie leave it alone forever) in about a month from now, with 11/11/22 as the absolute last date I'll allow myself to commit to the project. If you're ever in a bitter, highly sensitive, critical state and need to relieve some stress, here's the 100 tracks, choose one or more and write me all the things you think need fixing. LOL. . https://wolfkier.bandcamp.com/releases

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments on "Got To Let It Go" it's good to know that you get it and my heart goes out to your challenges as well. Music is truly a wonderful companion in those particular times :)

Thanks for the comment on my Deep Challenge song. I was I’ll prepared to go that deep, but whatever. It worked out I guess. 😀

You're welcome. Enjoy your first 50/90 experience! The frustration is not only about going DAWless (you manage way better than me), it's about being put into the wrong role.
