The 100 Songs Project 2014

In May this year, I was super-fortunate to be picked to record my song "Childish" as part of the QUT 100 Songs Project! Around 72 acts were chosen to record a grand total of 100 songs, in about a week - a marathon recording session! The fancy-pants Gasworks Studio was transformed into Brisbane's own song factory, as day and night, musicians were recording tunes in the three recording rooms.

Luckily I'm a late-night person, because I was given a 10pm-2am slot to record and mix a song, but it seemed perfect to record a song about the stars and the moon while the stars and moon were out! (However, producer Craig McCollough did have to tell me "Wakey wakey" after about 12.30am. Engineer Jake Tomlins seemed to draw energy from the night.)

As much as I would have loved, I didn't get to record in the room with the luscious grand piano, so this version is recorded with a keyboard, but overall it's not too shabby. Let me know what you think!

Thanks to QUT for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this exciting project!

You can buy the song for just 50 cents. The cost of a rapper!
