New stretch target

Wow!  Thank you to everyone who has made pledges.  I am absolutely delighted to be able to get my new album mastered and to provide you all with limited edition copies of "Down The Railway Line".  

If this stretch target is reached, I will also be able to produce standard edition copies of "Down The Railway Line" for sale at gigs and through my website as well as digital downloads and streaming.

Thank you!

A brief introduction

My name is Andrew Huggan and I am a folk singer/songwriter from Scotland's smallest county, Clackmannanshire.  I draw my inspiration from my lighthearted outlook on life and the adventures I have had travelling around Scotland.  My debut album "Travels", was Celtic Music Radio's album of the week when it was launched in December 2012, following a successful crowdfunding campaign.  Songs from this album have been played on radio stations across the UK and even as far afield as Hawaii!

My story

I have been trying to pin down the elusive second album ever since the release of "Travels" and was beginning to think it was maybe a one trick pony.  So I signed myself up for Glasgow Songwriting Festival in 2017 and ever since then my muse has been unlocked.  I have written 10 new songs since "Travels", four of which were started either at or shortly after Glasgow Songwriting Festival.  With the news that I am going to be a father this summer, and having enough new songs under my belt for a new album, the deadline has been set.

About my new album "Down The Railway Line"

The songs that will feature in "Down The Railway Line" are based on my memories of growing up in a small Scottish village called Fishcross, my experiences of both exciting adventures and the mundane weekly routine as well as a glimpse of what the future holds.  I grew up in Fishcross and spent uncountable hours playing down along  the path that used to be the old railway line that ran from Alloa to  Dunfermline.  "Down The Railway Line" is a fitting title for the album, the railway line being symbolic of the journey we all take through life.  "Down The Railway" is being recorded and mixed in my home studio and will be mastered by a local mastering engineer who I have worked with previously.  The album will then be released as a limited edition CD initially. 

How you can help

By making a pledge, you will be helping to cover the cost of mastering and having the CDs produced.  

I have made pledges to numerous crowdfunding campaigns over the years from many different bands and artists.  Every time I have found it a highly rewarding experience.  As soon that album pops through the letter box, you really do feel like you played an important part in it's creation.  I would love for you to share this excitement with me.
