I sat down with Hochstein's Beth Bailey to talk about Ad Hoc's upcoming performance on WXXI:

Dear all,

Your enthusiasm and support over the past forty weeks for the Song of the Week project has been incredible, which makes this announcement all the harder to make:

Due to my growing responsibilities as a musician and teacher in Rochester, I am no longer able to commit the time to a weekly song. I thought I could balance it all, but if the past two weeks are any indication of what is to come, then maintaining a weekly song blog is just not possible.

...

This is great news for me as a musician - as I am able to do many wonderful things, but bad news for Song-of-the-Week lovers.

HOWEVER!

I will still continue to write, record, edit, and produce tunes. I had WAY too much fun coming up with songs, and will continue to do so on a somewhat irregular basis. I will continue to post my musical exploits here, and hope that you will continue to follow.

Sincerely all the best,
Matt

Nope. Most likely Sunday. Definitely Monday. Week 41 also on Monday.

Still working on #40, hopefully done by Friday.

Eager song-fans: I'm probably going to have to change my weekly release schedule...you'll still get a weekly song, but the release will be a bit of a surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll be working on WEEK FORTY this morning/early afternoon, but I don't anticipate it being ready until the end of the week. Stay "tune"d! #greatpuns

Oops...forgot to post this morning. Just remember when you listen I've been sick with wonderful upper respiratory wonderfulness all week. I've got a fun tune in the works for week 40 next week...

Sorry for the delay...still not feeling 100% vocally, so turned Week 38's song into a trumpet thingy...which actually worked really well.

The song of the week will be slightly delayed this week due to illness. Oh well.

One for all the teachers.

Watch yo selves - it's about to get mildly political up in here.

Acapella? Acapella.
