So far, Courtney's solo project has been a product of circumstance, rather than a culmination of hard-fought decisions. After hearing about the RPM challenge from other musicians in the local scene, Courtney wrote and produced her first album Claws of the Beasts Inside in her bedroom, just to see what it would feel like to write alone, and to be solely responsible for all musical decisions. The existence of this album has lead to solo performances, a concert tour in Japan, and a general sense of positive instability and growth. 

Courtney is currently working on her second album, also as part of the RPM Challenge.
