HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT: Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows is releasing a solo record, and HE CALLED ON HIS FANS TO DESIGN the front and back cover ARTWORK. There were over 1,400 submissions. Last night, he narrowed it all the way down to two covers because he said that he “couldn’t live without either one.” They will both be pressed for a limited edition release — 500 vinyl copies of each selection, and also available for digital download. LESLEIGH’S ARTWORK HAS BEEN CHOSEN for the official album artwork for Adam Duritz’s “All My Bloody Valentines” !!!
Here’s what he had to say on the band’s Facebook page:
“Lesleigh’s heart is perfectly jarring in its artificiality, a cold reminder of the holiday itself sometimes, but the back, broken pieces scattered about, is a more fragile Valentine.”
We are so excited about this! We both worked very hard on this project, and we are so thrilled to have our work featured on one of our biggest influences’ new project. Adam Duritz has made the album available for free download, so please check it out. Thanks so much for reading!

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!
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.
