Hello I'm Pete,
I am raising £1000 to record my first short solo EP. Drawing influences from Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, John Mayer and Goo Goo Dolls (to name a few) this EP will comprise of two cover songs. Along with the standard EP I will be recording acoustic versions to go in a seperate deluxe version. Funds will also be spent on aquiring licensing permission for the two cover songs, printing of the album, promotion and merchandising.
On the 27th July 2017 I underwent Below the Knee amputation as a result of having a rare form of cancer called 'Synovial Sarcom' in my left foot. I want to raise awarness of Sarcoma cancer so that someone else may not have to lose a limb through ignorance. Once recorded I would like half the profit from any digital a physical sales of this EP to go Cancer charities yet to be decided.
I've always used music as a way to find some inner peace and as an outlet for my emotions.
In my late teens I battled addiction to drugs and alcohol. in my early 20's I overcame this battle and picked up my guitar and started playing again.
I've been playing guitar and singing for almost 15 years and its taken a tragedy for me to really starting writing music with earnest. I want to share my passion with all of you.
I promise that all the money raised will be soley used for this project and nothing else. Every pound will be used on recording, printing, merchandise, production, video recording and anything else I can squeeze into this musical venture. In return for your support I also promise to deliver on all pledges in a timely manor and keep everyone upto date via social media with photos, videos and such.
If i dont meet my target and am unable to move forward this project all donations will go to a selection of Charities in support of Youth Cancer, Sarcoma Cancer Research and Addiction Recovery.
Attached is a link to my Facebook page where you will find a rough video recording of the 'original track' that will be included on the EP a song I wrote called 'Hollow'. I continue to progress with my songwriting and if this venture goes well I hope to release more original music in the future.

I'm undertaking this project while rehabilitating from major surgery and as determined as I am, I face many challenges doing this alongside the rehabiltation from amputation and ask everyone to be patient.
Many Thanks in advance for your support,
