By this time tomorrow, you could be part of an international songwriting sensation. Let me explain.

The musicians

We have a couple of musicians staying with us right now, who are travelling around Europe in a campervan writing their first album together. They are called Eva and Manu and they look like this:


They are not new to songwriting. They both went to Berklee College of Music in Boston (which is a pretty big deal actually – ex-Berklee students can be found all over your iPod). Manu has already released one album and Eva has five or six to her name.

The idea

While I was working in the woods yesterday, I thought it would be very cool to have Eva and Manu write a song while they’re here. To add a little spice, I thought maybe they should write it in 24 hours. And because social media is doing such amazing things in the world at the moment, I thought maybe everyone else could write the words.

They said yes. Now it’s your turn.

The rules

a) In the next 24 hours, you can leave one word in the comments section under this blog post. (If you are shy, you can send an email instead. And if you can’t choose one word, send a couple – just don’t go mad.)
b) At 0900 tomorrow morning (French time), I will give the words to Eva and Manu. They will then have just 24 hours to write the song. This will be filmed and posted here immediately.

Got that? You and your friends write the words. Eva and Manu write the song. If it’s good enough, it could even be on the album.

I am going to start the whole thing off with the word: Hands.
