Hi there

Welcome to the wonderful world of PledgeMusic and to my page.

For those of you who don’t know me, I have worked with 4AD Records as part of the collective, This Mortal Coil, as lead vocalist on the 4AD project The Hope Blister, and vocalist on a one-off album project with Interscope Records under the band name The Kindness of Strangers. I have also self-released an EP of Randy Newman songs.

It’s been a dream of mine to release an album of my own songs and I’ve been working on this with co-writer, Irvin Duguid, for quite some time.

I’m in the home straight now and many of you I know are really looking forward to hearing the album. All the songs are written and recorded and I just need a little help to get me over the finishing line and make this dream a reality – it’s so close, it’s agony! The album will be called “Diary of a Lost Girl”.

All you have to do is choose something from the list of exclusive items and experiences, shown here on the right. No money will be debited until the target at the top reaches 100%. Whatever you choose from the list you will also receive, free of charge, a digital download of the album as soon as it is released. And if that wasn’t enough, by pledging you will also get exclusive “Pledgers Only” access to the backstage updates section where I will be posting music, artwork and news on the album as it moves towards completion. It really is that simple – if you Pledge or promise to buy the album, or anything else, I can make it!

We are in the final stages of mixing and mastering and for this I’ve chosen to work with Calum Malcolm, who has already completed three tracks. Calum is the man behind The Blue Nile’s recordings and perfect for my music.

A successful campaign will help me finish the album and release it both digitally and on CD in a limited edition format giving me the product I need to get back in the running in the music industry – where a lot of you have kindly told me I should be!

The best thing about Pledge is that it helps others at the same time as realising the dreams of so many talented people. I will be donating 10% of everything pledged once the 100% target is reached to Attitude is Everything, a charity I was involved with at its inception while I was Assistant Music Officer with Arts Council England back in the 90s. It’ll be so good to be involved again and I know first-hand how tirelessly the charity works to improve access to music for deaf and disabled people.

Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to “meeting” you!!

Love, Louise
