After funding the entirety of the J-Bear and The Giants album so far, I'm left in the difficult position of not having the cash-flow to release it in time for our launch on Fri 28th June at The Big House Blues Bar in Darwen, Lancashire. This Crowdfunder page will be our pre-order system for the new album. A £10 donation will get you a CD copy of REEDLEY HALLOWS. A £20 donation will get you a CD copy of the album, a ticket to the album launch and travel from Colne to Darwen and back again. Your donations will help cover the final costs of this album including the mastering of the album, CD printing, album artwork and the bus from Colne to the album launch.
The tracks themselves are picked from a huge body of work that spans back about 10 years. Some I wrote before the idea of a band existed, others that we wrote as a trio on the build-up to the first recording session. I always try and put as much blues and as much soul into my music but playing with such talented musicians really does take J-Bear and The Giants to another level of defying the blues "norm" while still capturing an authentic electric blues sound.
As it stands, this Pre-order system is only way to get your hands on a hard copy of the album over the web. As I'm sure a lot of you know already, I've worked really hard to fund this album and get it this far, so please pre-order the CD and come down to the album launch on Fri 28th June.
Thanks very much,
