National Solo Album Month

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” — Jack London

Here’s an interesting challenge. Write and record an ‘album,’ start to finish in November. You get an entire month to do it.

November is National Solo Album Month: anyone interested will write and record an entire solo album in the course of 30 days.

Based on the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), NaSoAlMo is the brainchild of Douglas Wolk. There are no prizes because NaSoAlMo is a challenge, not a competition. There is no entry fee and there are very few rules. The album must be at least 29:09 minutes long and there can be no more than one cover song. Your album must be written, recorded and all instruments played entirely by you.

Sign up by the end of October by sending an email to At 12:01 November 1, you can start work on your solo album. Let him know when you finish. If you finish, you are considered a winner of the competition.
