27/11/2016 - All pledges (past and future) will now receive a digital download of the EP when it is all done. One day left!
For years writing songs and playing music has been my side thing. Calling it a hobby meant just that; I didn't have to take it seriously. But since leaving my job in the city I decided that this is something that I have to do - I'm recording an EP. And I would love your help in making this happen.
To show you where we are going, we've released a little teaser - you can find this track at www.thejacklewis.com/my-island if you so wish... As this song had only me, my sister and my brother in law, it didn't need the extra funding so it was readty for early release.
In order to make radio / spotify / itunes ready songs to the professional standard they need to be, I'll need a studio, producer/engineer, session musicians, and mastering. This adds up to approximately £3,000. This will give the EP shimmering electric guitar, solid grooving bass and haunting trumpet, giving the songs the vibe they have in my imagination.
Getting these songs out into the world is something I feel compelled to do. The work we have done so far has been a steep learning curve that I feel will shape my next steps.
Any contribution is greatly appreciated!
