A song a week

In an effort to force himself to work harder at writing songs, Simon has recently launched a blog called “a song a week (every week for a year)”, where each week he writes and posts a brand new song. The first few songs are up and he’s hard at work creating the next one. Local producer Chris Tuck has got involved, ensuring studio-quality recording of each week’s song. Visit www.asongaweek.simonvangend.com, where you can listen to the songs and sign up to receive email notifications of each week’s new song.
