Let's Tell Our Nirvana Tribute Story

Dear Amazing Collaborators,

Before I address this particular project, I would like to address the why? I've battled the why back and forth, and I think it's this.  You are all so talented.  Some of you need to be in movie sound tracks. Some of you need to be scoring video games. Some of you should be rocking stadiums.  I don't think in the sea of media it's likely that happens through traditional means.  I believe taking charge of our creations, and working together on larger scale projects we can show all your music in different contexts.  If we can use our talents to create our own Media environment who knows. To the form letter....

I hope this message finds you well and filled with creative energy. First and foremost, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for your enthusiastic involvement in our Nirvana Cover Compilation project. Your talent and dedication are truly inspiring.

As we move forward with this tribute to Nirvana, I have an exciting vision to enhance the project and create something truly special - a documentary that not only showcases our unique renditions of Nirvana's iconic songs but also shares the personal stories, inspirations, and feelings of each participating artist. This documentary will give a deeper perspective to our project and make it even more memorable.

The Vision: I envision a documentary that combines our song covers, presented as lyric videos, with heartfelt interviews of each of you. We want to explore the "why" behind your song choice, your personal connection to Nirvana, and the emotions you've poured into your covers. This will add depth and authenticity to our project and allow our audience to connect with the music on a whole new level.

Your Participation: I kindly request your participation in this exciting endeavor by sharing your thoughts and experiences. If possible, we'd love to receive video responses to a series of questions. However, written responses are also welcome if that's more comfortable for you.

The Questions: Here's a list of questions to guide you in sharing your story:

  1. Why did you choose the specific Nirvana song you're covering?
  2. What does Nirvana's music mean to you personally?
  3. How has Nirvana's music influenced your own musical journey?
  4. Can you share any memorable moments or anecdotes related to working on your cover?
  5. What emotions or messages are you trying to convey through your rendition?
  6. How has this collaboration with fellow indie artists impacted your creative process?
  7. Are there any challenges or surprises you encountered during this project?
  8. What do you hope listeners will take away from your cover?
  9. How does it feel to be a part of a community project like this?
  10. Any message or shoutouts you'd like to share with your fellow collaborators?

Submitting Your Responses: Please record your video responses or written reponses and send them to onlythehostmusic@gmail.com

I genuinely believe that this documentary will add a beautiful layer of storytelling to our tribute project. Your voices and perspectives are essential in bringing this vision to life.

Thank you once again for your incredible contributions. I can't wait to see and hear your responses and, ultimately, present this documentary to the world as a testament to our love for Nirvana's music and our vibrant indie artist community.

If you have any questions or need further guidance, please don't hesitate to reach out. Let's make this project unforgettable together!
