SKIN&BONE were formed 2 years ago and started writing our debut album straight away. Influenced by bands such as Chickenfoot, Shinedown, Van Halen, Dokken and lots more we wanted to create a stripped back hard rocking sound. Even from the start the we knew that we wanted to involve fans with every part of the writing and recording process, inviting them to recording sessions and letting them hear rough demos of songs asking for feedback. We also used a community funded studio to record the album, the money paid for the sessions went back into encouraging local groups to record and perform music. Having no record label we design all our own artwork and promotional material, we even asked fans to suggest titles for the album.
We love what we do, playing music and involving our community all the time. We are now at the point where our album has been recorded but to release it we need to get it duplicated and printed. It's not going to be gold plated encrusted with diamonds! Again we want to source a company the uses recycled materials and to get the best quality product for you. This is where you all come in. In a perfect world musicians would be paid loads and live that rock n roll life but in reality we do this for the love of it. We are not a huge money making machine who couldn't care about fans. We know that if it wasn't for you all we wouldn't be doing this. So give us some support and we will give you some great stuff back!
So what are we offering? For £10 we will send you a copy of the album, we'll even sign it. £20 gets you the album 2 unreleased tracks AND the album artwork ALL signed! £30 gets you a whole lot more! the album, the unreleased tracks, the artwork PLUS original lyric sheets and the studio worksheets showing what we did during the recording of the album. ALL signed just for you.
Then the treats get interesting. As well as the album for £40 you can get a hour long lesson with Richie or Johnny. Richie will teach you some great guitar tricks as well as some hints and tips into his guitar style. Johnny will give you an hour of vocal coaching. How to warm up your voice and get the best out of it. Both lessons will be done via SKYPE at a time that's best for you.
Then for something really special you can either have the band perfom a 30 min acoustic show with some original and cover tracks, again all done via SKYPE for £100. Or for £200 you could have the band play in your front room, garden or anywhere you can think of. The band will do an hour long set with a mix of originals and covers. We will also hold a Q&A session afterwards. We will even throw in photos of the show and a signed, framed copy of the album artwork.
Please remember that if we don't get ALL of the target money, we DON'T get a penny. So pledge for these great treats and spread the word. With your support we can do this. But without we get nothing!! Once the money is raised we will then contact you and arrange your awesome treats! So KEEP supporting us and KEEP ROCKING!
Thanks for your support, Johnny, Richie, Scott & Simon
