A description of the project:
“From 1985 to 2004 Jacob Wren wrote songs. Lots and lots of songs. Then he completely stopped. At the time not very many people heard them. Every Song I’ve Ever Written is a project about memory, history, things that may or may not exist, songwriting, the internet and pop culture. On this site you can listen to, and download, these songs.
In a way, because hardly anyone heard them, these songs don’t yet exist. If you are reading this, we would like you to consider recording your own version of one of these songs, changing it, making it your own, then sending it to us. We will post every version we receive.
There will also be performances and events. Karaoke nights will allow anyone to sing the songs Karaoke-style, with Jacob playing guitar behind them. Solo performances will feature Jacob performing all of the songs in chronological order (it takes about five hours.) Band Nights will feature a series of local bands in different cities performing one of Jacob’s songs each. After each version, Jacob will interview the band about what it was like to cover the song, and the band will interview Jacob about what it was like to write it.” From http://www.everysongiveeverwritten.com/en/solo-and-band-nights/
