Bobby Long’s project is done but don’t be sad, there’s a new one…
Thanks for following! You'll get any future updates.
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I am really excited to be partnering with PledgeMusic to make my new record. I have been so incredibly lucky to have you and many others supporting me over the last five years. In that time, I have released a few EPs, two full albums and a poetry book, and you have been at my shows and supported me by buying my music and spreading my music to your friends as well as to total strangers.
Now I need to ask for your help. I am doing something a little different this time around. I am launching this campaign and I want you to be a part of it. By either pre-ordering my album or purchasing one of the many packages we have put forward, you will be directly helping me to make my next album. I have been writing the songs for the last six months, and I feel the best I have ever felt writing songs. I feel this will be the most important record I have made to date. With your generous support in tandem I feel we can make something positive and collaborative.
Whether you simply purchase the digital copy of the record, the home demos or if I end up performing a private house concert for you and your friends, I will be recording this album with your support and generosity in my heart. The plan is to make an album based around my solo live shows. I will record based around my voice, harmonies and my acoustic guitar and then build based around the songs and lyrics. I have progressed naturally to this outcome, but I can’t help feeling this is many people’s favored way of hearing me play. This is why I think it’s the perfect time to collaborate with you in making this record and with the kind folks at PledgeMusic.
To those of you who have been there with me along the way and those of you who are discovering me for the first time on this site, I hope you will join me on this journey to make what I plan to be an extraordinary record. Together, we are an enviable team, and I know we will have real success.
For my third album, I’m going back to where I began—to make an album that captures the intimacy of my live shows based around my voice, guitar and new songs. By pledging, you will get the digital download upon release and exciting updates along the way.
My new album available on CD. PLUS the album download and access to the exclusive updates.
