Hello again dear friends,

I’m sure you’ve heard it said, that the album is “dying!” Still people ask me when I will make another.

The world of music has almost split into 2 categories now, those that stream single songs and and those that still like the concept of an album, a body of work that takes them on a musical journey like a novel or a movie, and want their favourite musicians to keep creating while making a livelihood. A great album can take us through a lifetime, a streamed song seems fleeting and remote.

I have something extra uplifting in mind for this album. I have found a Manhattan Jewel hidden among the skyscrapers, a small Church built by the same man that created the metropolitan Opera House (c1850) It has great acoustics, but even greater instruments, a Baldwin Grand Piano, a Harpsichord and a full pipe organ. Pastor Chris (a beautiful man) heard me perform there in a Christmas special and is allowing full access. I want to bring you along for the making of this. The history of this Church should be big help to bring attention for the launch. I have a 20 Euro note stuck to my fridge that someone paid for a CD with, on it they wrote “there’s a lot of love in your music” the goodness of this environment should only help to capture that elusive love; Playing this organ truly excites me, and that’s how the special songs come about.

I’m teaming with PledgeMusic once again to release this album – you all supported me greatly through my last campaign. Through the changing music industry, I have been in and out of different labels and experiences. When I found PledgeMusic I finally found somewhere that was a perfect fit for me, my music, and most importantly, you, my supporters.

By pre-ordering my new album here, you will have access to exclusive updates that I will be posting so you can experience the album as it is made. Also, every pre-order comes with a digital download of the album, which I’ll send out as soon as its ready!

During my last release on PledgeMusic I promised that I would not short-change you with my music and I hold that promise true. Join me as we do this again together.

Cheers,
Pierce

I have received messages from some kind friends that just wanted to send in a pledge to support the new album, they didn’t want to bother with the incentives, and in some cases, the incentives didn’t match what they wanted to Pledge. So this is for those of you that feel this way. You will definitely still receive a download of the album and all the the updates. There is a minimum of $11 – above that you can pledge whatever you wish. Thanks so much Pierce.

Only one available. This “Orange Coloured Sun” is a painting by my Brother Seamus, he only started painting in recent times after his wife Patty died, it has really saved his life I believe. His favourite song of mine is “Orange Coloured Sun” so this is how he sees it. It’s an oil painting on canvas (I can sign the back to you if you wish) 16" by 12" I’m very grateful that He donated this to my Pledge Campaign.
