about

King Everything is participating in the 12in12x12 project. 12 brand new songs written and recorded in 12 hours. This is the March 2013 album of 12 songs. Oh... over-achieving... 24 (or 25) this month.

I wrote all the songs and recorded the guitar and vocals in about 12 hours. Maybe a little more, but not much more.

Then I posted these unfinished songs on Soundcloud and asked people to help fill them up and finish them off. I spent additional time fiddling around with what I got.

This album is the finished product.
