How to Write an Album

12 hours. 12 songs. One album!

The Undercuts are our dynamic five piece band that will write and record an album from scratch in 12 hours. You'll get to see the creative process and final product and engage with it however you choose. From lyric and music writing to album art to playing on the final recording; everybody is welcome to inspire and influence all aspects of the albums production.

Each new hour brings a new song and a new songwriting method for the band to embrace.
By the end of each hour, that song will be recorded.
