The Swellers Post Personalized Songs

Posted by - 10:26 PM on 08/24/08
The Swellers have posted 15 personalized songs up for download on their purevolume. Keep your eyes peeled for the AP.net song.
Message from the Bandn one week we wrote 15 songs and now they are all recorded and up on our Purevolume page for free download! Max from Say Anything was doing this thing where he'll write you a personalized song about a problem you're facing. You send him 2 paragraphs detailing your predicament, pay him $150, and you get your very own acoustic song. We liked this idea, so we copied it, except we offered to do it for FREE.

We started this project completely for fun; to maybe write songs for a couple of our friends and fans. But from our bulletin, and a few news sites, we received hundreds of messages from all over the world from people who wanted a song. Due to the overwhelming response, we closed submissions a little over a day later.

We narrowed it down to 16 songs, wrote and recorded them in a week, and here they are.

It was quite the learning experience for us to read all of these messages. The fact that people can open up to people they've never met or talked to before is HUGE. The bottom line is, everyone has a common bond in music, and everyone needs someone to talk to.

ALL OF THE PERSONALIZED SONGS ARE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD!

And all of the lyrics are included with each song! So check them out!

Thanks for your support.

-Nick and Jonathan

is it me or does this kind of completely defeat the idea of a personalized song?
