Hi! My name is Susan Busatti Giangano. I know, it's a mouthful...
"Teddy and Me" is my pet project. I've committed to writing and recording one song per week for one year, 52 songs, 52 weeks. Them's the rules! ;-)
I am working on week #48 at this point.
It's been quite the ride!
When I decided to take on this project, I knew that it was going to be difficult, but I was thinking only in terms of how hard it would be to create a new song every week.
It would be tough, but I would end up a better songwriter, musician, engineer (well, that could only get better) and hey, I would end up with lots of new material to choose from.
What I wasn't prepared for was the emotional roller coaster that I was about to board.
Every week is different. Some songs are exciting and fun to create. I can't wait to put them up! I listen and listen. I get some positive comments and life is beautiful. I'm just plain giddy!
A week later, another song is evolving, yet not so effortlessly. Thursday Night comes. It has to be done, but it's just not quite what I had in mind. It's a bit slow. I need to redo the vocals. Oh, I have some definite ideas for the lyrics, but I have no time. So I put it out. I just do it and I'm devastated!
Stop thinking Susan! You're thinking too much!! Stop stressing and make some music, God damnit! Process... it's process!!
Yeah, I talk to myself. Let's just keep that between us, o.k?
Oh, and Teddy is my 80 pound golden retriever puppy... He helps... Well, not really, but he sits on the couch and listens... Sometimes...
I am loving this ride! ... I would really love your imput!
My very best,
