Confession Call #1: HS Queer Baiter

We’re trying something new here at Song Confessional and are calling on YOU to help us out.

If you’ve been following along and thinking to yourself, “I could have totally written a song for this confession!”, well now’s your chance!

We’re asking you to listen to this confession (taken at Red River Revel), write and record an original song inspired by it, and send it to us. If we like it, we’ll feature our favorites on the next episode of the show!

Your song doesn’t have to be studio quality. Record it on your phone, and produce it on an MPC, whatever your method is will work for us. Just make sure you follow the information and submission requirements in the google doc here. Submit your song no later than December 13th.
