When I started making music I was desperate to find ways of getting people to hear it. I was playing as many open mic nights and shows as possible and trying to get exposure anywhere I could. This led me to the adventure that was Orange Unsigned.
I successfully managed to get my music across to a lot of people but in the process I was chewed up and spat out by the big budget, major label, music business. But it wasn’t all bad. It was an amazing experience; I had a top twenty hit, I spent two crazy years on the road playing tours and festivals, released two albums and last year I put together my latest collection of songs at the brilliant CHEM 19 studios in Glasgow with Producer Paul Savage (Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap, Mogwai). During this time I gained lots of awesome fans of my music. Now we have full control to work together on the release of the album and this is where I need your help!
This will be my third full release and I am very excited about the prospect of putting these songs out and taking them on the road. I have teamed up with the people here at PledgeMusic to make this release possible. By ‘pledging,’ you will be contributing to getting the album pressed and help to fund a tour and video to support the record. There are lots of pledges on offer from simply pre-ordering the new album to having me record a cover of your choice.
There is no limit to what you can pledge and once we reach our target, some of the money will go to my chosen charity, Mary’s Meals. They provide amazing school feeding projects for children in the poorest areas where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.
This record was so fun to make and with your help we can give it a great release and put together an awesome tour!
Thanks for your support.
