Dear friends and supporters,
Thank you for visiting my Pledge page – make yourself comfy, I’ve got a short story to tell….
In summer 2013 I decided to stop making music on my own, under my given name, and concentrate exclusively on collaborative projects. This turned out to be kind of short-sighted. Over the past three years I’ve had a truly wonderful and fulfilling time working with others under different guises (Liu Bei and Parla) – writing with and performing music alongside like-minded musical folk is an incomparable experience – but I began to miss working alone and singing the songs I’d released over the years.
Three years later and here I am, with my tail between my legs, screaming like a deranged lunatic “I was wrong, my stupid brain tricked me, let’s release a killer solo album?!?!”
So, I’ve been working on this brand new record, ‘A.M’, with the gifted (and handsome) producer Aidan O’Brien these last few months, and now I can’t wait to share it with you and the whole known universe.
In order to get this record out into the world and soaring, there’s a few things we need to get sorted first – mixing, mastering, artwork, CD pressing, PR costs – and, in the spirit of diehard independence, we’re looking to do all these things with the wonderful power of crowd-funding…that means YOU! No careless record labels, no frustration and heartache, just a perfect, 100% fan driven release.
How can you help? Simple – check out the exclusive Pledge incentives, get yourself something special & unique and spread the word – sharing is key to reaching our goal here. And then, before you know it, there will be a new Richard Walters album in the world that YOU helped to make. Amazing, right?!
