Good news! Although our April 1st 54 Below show is sold out, we’ve got your back and saved a pair of tickets. We thought it’d be fun to have a little contest, and the winner will get ‘em.
Here’s the set up:
In every song we write, we try to put into words and music something that people have thought or felt but never heard in a song. From “TMI” to “Almost First Kiss,” our goal is to crystallize an experience, to express something we sort of knew but didn’t know we knew, and to provide a greater clarity for thinking about our experiences. Sometimes, our friends provide inspiration; one friend’s experience with his father became “Make It Here.” Derek’s experience with his neighbor became “Wall Lovin’” (partially). More recently, when our friend Gregory Haney dropped the term “white gurl wasted” we knew that had to be a song—-one he’ll be debuting on April 1st.
So here’s your challenge:
Tell us what our next song should be. What experience have you had that needs to be a song? What did you hear someone say on the street or see on the news that needs to be sung? Or just give us an evocative title. It can be goofy or gross or heartbreaking—-or even all three.
There are two ways you can submit.
1) Youtube Video:
a) Make a video telling us what you want us to write a song about and why! Either tells us a story or just a title. STYLE POINTS COUNT!
b) Post your video on Youtube and title it: CARNER AND GREGOR 54 BELOW CONTEST: [Your name]
c) Like our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/carnerandgregor
d) Post your Youtube Video on your Facebook wall and tag us in it!
2) Email Submission (For those more personal stories)
a) Like our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/carnerandgregor
b) Write us an email explaining your idea for our next song.
c) Subject Line should read: Submission for 54 Below Contest: [Your name]
d) Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission deadline is March 17th. Winner will be announced March 20th!
