We're still collecting donations

On the 1st July 2020 we'd raised £7,800 with 136 supporters in 42 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Well I did not expect that! I really cannot express how grateful and overwhelmed I am by the support! The extra money now raised will go towards a superior processor for my laptop so the creation of music and videos can be delivered to you quicker and to a higher standard.

Now this is a long shot as so many of you have already been so generous BUT If we raise enough money I can use these extra funds to also book musicians and hire venues for my dream of a solo UK tour. 'A SONG A DAY KEEPS CORONA AWAY - THE GREATEST HITS!' (working title). I couldn't think of a better way to repay you for your kindness than to bring you the music you love in concert across the country and hopefully one day, the world!

Thank you for reading and being part of my journey. Don't forget to check out the rewards I have on offer for your donations! 

Hello everyone! I would like your help. Right now we are all in a weird and turbulent time. For many it has meant working from home, being furloughed by their employer or even losing their job altogether. Being a professional singer, you can imagine due to the whole social distancing thing, I have no job. All of my work has been cancelled. Eek!

When lockdown started I really felt I had lost my purpose. Regardless of this, I decided to use this extra time to be creative. On the 23rd March 2020 I vowed to sing and upload a new song everyday during Coronavirus in order to brighten anyones day with music. A SONG A DAY KEEPS CORONA AWAY. Now 56 songs in and counting, I have kept my promise and from reading the 1000s of comments people have written, it is truly a privilege to provide comfort and joy to so many across the world in these hard times. My purpose has been restored by the love you have shown.

My reason for crowdfunding? I WANT TO MAKE THESE VIDEOS BETTER FOR YOU! Slowly but surely I've been improving the quality of my songs but I have hit a wall that can only be overcome by buying new equipment such as a better audio interface, DAW, microphone etc. Before, I would have been able to fund these improvements myself but no gigs means no money! This is where I would like to ask for your help.

If you are kindly able to make a donation towards my goal it will allow me to not only improve the quality of the free entertainment I am providing but will also help for future projects such as creating an album, collaboration with other artists and provide me with more touring opportunities across the world so I can bring my music live to you!

For anyone who does decide to donate I want you to know that I truly appreciate your generosity and it really does mean the world to me that you have taken the time to listen. Thank you.
