I was recently asked to participate in my friend (and fellow songwriter) Timmy Riordon’s annual “Songbomb” Songwriting Challenge. Every February he challenges himself to write 28 songs in the 28 days of February. This is a VERY difficult and time consuming task to challenge yourself to do.
In order to encourage him along the way, he asks his songwriter friends to contribute a song on a respective day of the month to help keep him focused on the final goal. Today is my day to help him on his quest!
CLICK HERE TO GO TO HIS WEBSITE AND TO HEAR WHAT I CAME UP WITH. Also be sure to check out ALL of Timmy’s songs from the month so far and the other talented writers who have contributed.
Tim and I challenged ourselves to write a song on the topic of “adversity” and/or “overcoming adversity.” Enjoy!

Happy New Year! Brian and I are playing a show tonight at the Intercontinental Hotel in Milwaukee. FREE! We play from 9-10pm and are opening for Jake Paul. Come on out and hang out with us!
As you may already know, about a month ago, Brian, Lesleigh and I had our first ever music video shoot! The video is directed by our friend Jon Kline and will feature the song “Lord Knows We’ve Got Time” from our new album “Here We Go” (Click Here To Buy).
THE VIDEO IS NEARING COMPLETION! So keep checking back here at TonyMemmel.com for updates as you will definitely want to be one of the first people to see this. The early footage looks really cool (if I may say so myself)! We’re all very excited about it and can’t wait to share it with you.
