Howdy pledgers!

This album will be created with a little help from you wonderful ‘pledgers’ and all my talented friends around the world that have kindly donated their talents to help this album come to life. I have been recording 9 of my new songs with cameos from all sorts of lovely people like Curt Smith from Tears for Fears, my ol mate Nik Kershaw, Robbie Nevil, my little sister Keely & even my dad, Chip as well as loads more of my special and generous musician and engineer friends, making this album a very special project and extremely close to my heart.

95% of artists are faced with a Catch 22. If you sign to a major record label, (and most artists never even get close to a deal), the label pays the bills, (videos, artwork, manufacturing, promotion etc), but then if you don’t turn into a big seller, the label will drop you and you’re out on your own. I know this because it happened to me back in the last century – (as well as to thousands of others, before and since).

By pre-ordering or ‘pledging’ for my new album you’ll join an exclusive group of people who will be part of the process, gaining access to exclusive updates, bonus footage, demos, studio photos and lots more. We’ll then release the album to you digitally before it’s on sale anywhere else. In addition to this, there are a wide range of exclusive, signed, limited edition, and bespoke items and experiences all of which are available right here. Just check out the list on the right hand side. With every item bought on the list I will include the album in digital download format.

We will be working towards a target amount of pledges and you will be able to track our progress with the percentage bar above. Once we’ve hit 100%, we can start putting the wheels in motion and sending you the items you’ve pledged for.

I will be donating 25% of the money made after I reach my target to Love146, an amazing charity with one goal – The abolition of child sex slavery and exploitation. Nothing less. Please visit them @ http://love146.org/

I believe that this meeting of creativity and new technology is indicative of the opportunities that lie ahead for composers and artists and I hope that you find my new association with Pledge Music as much fun as I find it energising.

I’m really looking forward to this experience. I’m willing, you’re able, let’s do this thing!

Be sure to leave comments, check in for updates and PLEASE help me get the word out on your social networks….

Thank you so much for sticking with me!

Love
Chesney x
