 New stretch target

If I reach the stretch goal I will also release a limited batch of highly requested vests and hoodies!


Hi, my names Sam. Welcome, or welcome back, to my crowd funder. I've been very lucky to successfully fund my last 3 albums with amazing support and I'm hoping I get to do it again! I've decided to keep creating and pursuing music independently, so no fancy record label to give me thousands of pounds (just to ask for it all back later...) which I why I need your help again. There's something I find really special about these crowd funders in that I know this wouldn't be possible without the help of so many lovely, and supportive, humans. 

So, a bit more about the album: Not My Cup of Tea. 10 songs, written over the last 5 years, following a pivotal moment and directional change in my life. I won't say any more about it as you'll hopefully get to hear it soon enough but according to my brother, who's always had the first listen, it's my best one yet... but whether he's right or not is a mystery to me.

As always, the album is finished and ready to go. It's recorded, mixed, mastered and all the artwork is complete, I just need some help getting it plonked onto CD and vinyl (that's right, vinyl straight out of the gate this time!) 

As has been the case in the past, there are a limited number of exclusive bundles with merchandise that will not be available after the crowd funder is completed so if you like the selection of things you see, now's your chance to grab it! Included will be a T-shirt, mug, coaster and tea towel. (Designs at the bottom of this page.) 

This will be an all or nothing campaign, meaning, if the goal is not reached, all pledges will be returned in full. This is always a terrifying concept as this is the highest amount I've ever aimed to raise (mainly because Vinyl is not a stretch target this time). I don't yet have a plan B if it isn't successful but whatever the outcome, any support that you show means the absolute world to me. 

So, my fingers are crossed and my heart is racing but I cannot wait to share the album with you all, as soon as I can.
