Greetings! Welcome to my third solo PledgeMusic campaign for my brand new album Journal of a Journey Buoy.

For those unfamiliar with Pledge, it’s essentially a pre-order but with a tonne of perks. The funds raised make the album cycle a reality so in return I’ll be showing my gratitude in a number of ways all the way through until 2015. To name but a few of the bonuses there will be an abundance of unheard material given away, exclusive behind-the-scenes videos plus your name in the CD booklet.

You can pledge just £8 for the digital copy of the album which also includes all the free update content. Check out the incentive list on here too if you’re after some extra cool stuff including my back catalog on CD, tee shirts, personalised songs, handwritten stuff & more.

For my previous album Dreamoirs I wanted to venture a band sound but for this piece I’m capturing my sound with an exclusive solo acoustic approach. No bells & whistles or additional parts, just one man & his guitar. Minimalist & bare bones.

Journal of a Journey Buoy is the most lyrically & sonically personal album I’ve made & I hope you feel the same. It’s been refreshing to explore something so reflective & intimate.

Also, once the campaign is funded 5% of all funds raised will go towards Shelter, a key charity in helping housing & homelessness.

Lastly, thank you so much as always for supporting my music. Without your help all this simply wouldn’t be possible. Music is my life so I’m eternally grateful to have people care in any way!
