Here’s what’s included in the “Original Song Written For You” adventure package:
⚡One original song written on a topic of your choice (assuming we vibe with the idea) The process begins with a zoom or phone call in which Noah & Ivy can hear your idea. Both of us are used to writing songs when we’re inspired by our own experiences and feelings, so we want to make sure we can really connect to the feeling, the inspiration and the meaning of the song you’re wanting. We’re also open to getting a feel and vibe for what the songs might sound like to you. Maybe you have a melody a bass line or chord progression you’ve come up with. Maybe you have some lyrics or even a name for the song. If we resonate with what you have in mind and we all want to move forward with the project, then Ivy and Noah would write the lyrics and compose music, including your inspiration and ideas into the composition.
Writing a song can take time. So we want to give ourselves a couple months to put a song together. Once Ivy and Noah have a rough sketch of the song, we’d start playing it with the band and allow other layers of the song to develop. We’ve learned the hard way that we can’t rush this process. Songs need time to marinate, for new creative ideas to flourish and sometimes it can take a while before we feel it’s ready to record and publish. We all want to feel solid, like the song has ripened, has become it’s best self, and only then would we begin the recording process. If everything stays on schedule, the recording, mixing, fine tuning, and mastering process takes about a month, from start to finish, but sometimes longer. So it’s realistically 3 to 4 months before a song is ready to publish.
Once the song is ready to publish we’d schedule it to release worldwide on all streaming platforms available through our distributor, these include all the big ones, like Apple Music, Spotify, Google Music, YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp and the list goes on.
Lastly, as a finale for this process, we’d schedule a live public stream performance of the song dedicated to you or the person of your choice.
