My name is Geoff Robb and I have spent the past 18 months writing music about trees. Please watch the video above to hear samples from the new album and find out how you can get involved.
I'd like to invite you to join me in the process of transforming my compositions into an album through crowd-funding by pre-ordering your copy.
I am lucky enough to be able to record at home and only need 1 more piece of equipment to do this. The rest of the money raised will pay for the mixing and mastering of the recordings, the actual CDs and the album artwork and design including a 12 page booklet about The Music of Trees project and the inspiration for the trees behind each composition.
Every CD also comes with a digital download of the album.
I am also going to produce a podcast about trees which you can contribute to by describing a tree that has had an impact on you. Use your smart phone to record yourself and then upload it online. Your story may be chosen to feature on the album and podcast.
Upload your tree story and find out more here:
I've written 10 pieces for this album - each inspired by a different tree: Willow, Birch, Hornbeam, Holm Oak, Cherry, Linden, Scot's Pine, Elm, Ash and Yew.
This summer I was due to be performing a tour with over 30 dates ending at the Edinburgh Fringe before it was all sadly cancelled due to Covid-19 so I'm trying to find the positive in the situation and use my time to write and record.
Every donation makes a difference so please spread the word by sharing on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and email!
I am also offering a FREE online concert in association with Wandsworth Arts Festival on Sunday 24th May at 7pm which you can register for on Eventbrite
Here is a video of 'Returning' from my last album The Burren which was also funded by crowdfunding.
