New stretch target

Any excess donations will be donated to Charities in support of Youth Cancer, Sarcoma Cancer Research and Addiction Recovery, When these donations are made then I will make updates on social media so everyone knows where their money has gone.

I am raising £1000 to record my first solo EP. Drawing influences from Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, John Mayer and Goo Goo Dolls (to name a few) this EP will comprise of all original material. Along with the standard EP, I will be recording live studio version of Hollow. Funds will also be spent on promotion and a launch event (profits from which will be going the charity).

On the 27th July 2017 I underwent Below the Knee amputation as a result of having a rare form of cancer called ‘Synovial Sarcoma’ 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 a percentage of the profit from any digital sales of this EP will go 3 charities, you can find out who they are and more about what they do on my Facebook page.

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 with 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 my own music with earnest. I want to share my passion with all of you.

I promise that all the money raised will be solely used for this project and nothing else. Every pound will be used on recording and a launch event to raise even more for charity. 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 don't 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 rehabilitation from amputation and ask everyone to be patient.

Many Thanks in advance for your support,
Pete Felton
