We’ve got exciting news!  Write to Remember will be releasing an album or two from Motion Jones.  If you haven’t heard these acoustic indie rock tunes, please check out Motion Jones on MySpace.com.

The songs are recorded, but we really want to make an awesome album for you, so we’re raising money to get Free Time & Baby Teeth mastered.   Since we’re poor, we’re reaching out to you for help.   We are asking for $5 from our fans to sponsor a 30 second block.  You could even do $30 to sponsor a whole song!  Our goal is $360 and with your help we’ll have it done in no time.

What’s in it for me, you may ask?  You’ll be able to download the entire mastered album and cover art for free when it’s released.  Pretty sweet, eh?  What are you waiting for?

Please donate now!

Introduction

Welcome to Write to Remember’s World Wide Web Log. Write to Remember is a record label, but the reality is that record labels are becoming less and less important. Music continues, so we’ll be writing about what we’re listening to.

Welcome to Write to Remember’s World Wide Web Log.  Write to Remember is a record label that Lewis started to put out music by his band, Half Dug.  It was his ambition to work with musicians and put out and promote a group of bands that he felt passionately about.  He even studied music business in college and educated himself on the releasing independent records, starting a record label, understanding the legal environment of music business, etc.

The reality is that record labels are becoming less and less important and even unnecessary for a band to succeed.  Years later, Write to Remember has two releases:  a posthumously recorded and released a full length album by Half Dug and an EP by Washing Away, a solo project that has not played any shows.  To say that this label is a hobby would be an overstatement.

Music continues, however.  The branches created by former band members spread and flower all the time.  In the absence of our own bands, we at Write to Remember will mostly be writing about what were listening to and our relationship to these songs.
