Thanks so much for visiting my crowdfunder page!
I'm a folk/blues/pop singer-songwriter from the South West of sunny old England.
I've been writing and peforming for the last five years, but over the last year or so, songs have been coming out of my ears! My music has really evolved and grown-up and I feel really ready to record my first full-legnth studio album and present these new songs to you in the best way possible.
I feel mega lucky for the support of really loyal followers that have built up over the years and I'd LOVE for you all to be involved in creating this album with me!
WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE FOR MORE OF THE STORY!
I want this to be something we can be really proud of and something that you really enjoy listening to. If you are able to support in any way financially, big or small, I would be forever grateful and in return, I'd like you to be involved in various parts of the project if you want to be. Recording is an expensive job but my promise to you is that the final product will be something really special. Heres what your contribution will pay for:
- Five full days recording at Earthworm Amber Recording Studios, with the best producer I've met; Jon Buckett. Recording 10 - 12 songs (depending on time) with a multitude of musicians. (£1250)
- Musicians to play on some tracks to make it sound even more beautiful to your ears, including percussion, double bass, and strings. (£450)
- Mixing and mastering - this is the technical bit that makes all the levels sound lovely to your ears and has to be done by a professional technical person because I have no idea how to do technical things... (£500)
- Artwork and printing - Design of CD and digital artwork and then CD production. (£450)
- Press release, advertising materials and digital marketing. (£350)
I've always felt really connected to my followers and have become good friends with many of you, so I dont want you to just pledge your money and then leave me to it. I'd love for you to be involved in helping choose the artwork and songlist and create something really personal to all of us. Of course this is not obligatory, you can be a 'silent pledger' if you wish..
- EVERY PLEDGE ABOVE COMES WITH A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OF THE ALBUM.
- Every pledger will get a public shout out and thank-you on social media (unless anomynous).
- Every pledger with a facebook account will gain an invite into a private facebook group where we can discuss ideas together, hear sneak peaks of the new songs, and get video updates from the studio. Those of you that dont have facebook will be updated by email.
- Every pledger will have their name printed in the album CD artwork (unless you tell me otherwise).
- Pledgers can chose to select certain rewards in return for their pledge. Look Right to see rewards available ->->->->
- Any money raised over the target we will put towards making a cool music video together! :)
The plan is to record early October and to have the album released by end of November, followed by a short UK tour in Spring! So hopefully you can dance around the Christmas tree to the finished tracks this year!
Thanks for looking and (hopefully) pledging. It seriously means so much to me and, cheesy I know, but I really couldn't do it without you. I feel some-what overwhelmed with the amount of support you guys keep giving and I promise to do you proud on this record.
YOU ARE AWESOME!
