I finished February Album Writing Month with 20 new songs. You can find them here on my site or I’m @ductapeguy at the FAWM website.
I was not alone. 410 of 2267 registered writers completed 14 or more songs with 1 person writing 125 new songs. All in all, over 9000 songs were written as part of FAWM. As we approached the finish line, I invited other FAWMERS to send me audio reflections about their own experiences. Here they are.
1) Spoken word intro
2) Billy Day by Sean McGaughey @ductapeguy
My great-grandfather, Joe Horrocks, hauled freight with a horse team and wagon around 1915-1925 in Northern Alberta. There is a story passed down through the generations that he once met a man who had a trained team of moose.
I did some googling and found a brief article and picture at the Alberta Archives about Billy Day and his moose-drawn carriage. I wrote the story of how I imagined he came to have a team of moose.
