Letters to the Editor, Vol. 1

One of my favorite songwriters, Andrew Osenga, has just released a Web CD.

Couple of cool things about this project:
  1. It's available by download only (click the photo above for a direct link). If you like the music, he asks for contributions through Paypal.

  2. He asked his blog readers for ideas for all the songs. They threw out ideas and he worked several of them into song lyrics.

  3. He found some software where his blog readers could record background vocals and send them to him. He received more than 50 replies, and he meshed them all into one of the songs as a chorus. He calls them "webground vocals".

  4. From inception to completion, he spent 20 days total on this project.

Pretty amazing!
