Hello lovely people
I am excited to announce that I am starting work on a BRAND NEW ALBUM!
During my recent music tour around New Zealand I wrote lots of new songs, very inspired by my experiences, adventures, & the enormous sense of space I got from traveling there. They seem like strong songs. Good songs. Songs that might be needed by people right now…
We feel like the World needs more magic at this mad chaotic time. and music is pure MAGIC. and we want to put some musical magic out into a world that so urgently needs it.
Essentially we are asking openly & unashamedly for people who like our music – to help us fund the making of the New Album by PRE-ORDERING themselves a copy – and thus by doing so – helping us to pay for the Recording Studio costs… as we frankly just dont have the spare money to pay for a recording studio. Its not cheap!
Why dont you have any money? I hear you ask… well- due to illegal music downloading it has become a really challenging time for musicians to make a living from their music, and, this is the new way we musicians make albums. Its called CrowdSourcing. – its a cool concept where we ask our supporters and fans to HELP us make our albums. We ask them to GET INVOLVED.
It feels like a nice modern way of to make an album.
We INVOLVE you. We will send you videos of us working our magic in the recording studio & demos of the new songs if you pre-order an album.
‘Tell us about the new Album Bob…’
Ok. I shall! – The direction of the new album is sounding more folky than our last Album. A bit EARTHIER. Most of the new songs were written in New Zealand, which is a very clear & earthy country! Some of the songs have a little Mauri tribal influence, and some have a very English folky feel. Like our last album – we intend to MASH UP the styles and genres into a melting pot of goodness for you. We’d like to make a deep, grounded and uplifting Album with a little more focus on the message of the songs this time round…
The message of the new Album which is provisionally titled ‘SIMPLIFY’ – is simply this. That the world is getting really crazy & unnecessarily complex, over-technologified, and well – kinda bonkas…and we ALL need to slow down – and simplify.
So this Pledge Campaign is to try to raise funding needed for us to enter a studio and spend some time recording, arranging and loving my new songs into existence. into a much-needed album of simple beautiful songs. Songs that will resonate with people and help calm them down in these times of ever-increasing busyness & stress.
What do ya say…? Can you help us by pre-ordering a copy?
We ask you, our very beloved supporters, to become part of the ENERGY of this album… and to help make it happen…
Choose from a whole host of ‘Pledge’ Options…ranging from a £6 pledge for a digital download of the new album – to a £200 pledge to actually SING on our new album, and lots of other options in-between….
A thousand thank you’s to you for your support
Its also totally fine if you dont too.
i know how it is…
