Elizabeth McGovern’s project is done but don’t be sad, there’s a new one…
Thanks for following! You'll get any future updates.
We have had a great year since releasing ‘How Not To Lose Things’. It’s been a pleasure to meet many of you at gigs. Our highlights were ’Queen Elizabeth Hall; with Gretchen Peters and Barry Walsh, playing with Sting at the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Isle of Wight Festival (for the second year running), performing in Edinburgh at the Fringe over nine nights and headlining our own tour in Sweden.
We’re excited to be able to let you know we’re recording a new album set to be released in February and you can be part of it through PledgeMusic. It’s certainly a new model but we think the lovely people at PledgeMusic have shown the way in what had become a stale and jaded industry.
You can participate in several ways. You can re-order a signed album and even have your name on it, have us play an acoustic set at your house or a venue of your choice, be our guests at a gig on the Mike & The Mechanics tour we are guesting on, attend an all day guitar lesson (in a group of 10) with the Nelson Brothers, receive signed drum heads by Terl and other items you can see listed below.
PledgeMusic will make sure that no money is debited from your bank account until we’ve reached 100% of our target and you can follow our progress using the blue percentage bar above. Once we reach our target and release date, the items you’ve pre-ordered will be delivered to you and all the exclusive experiences can happen.
A percentage of the PledgeMusic proceeds will go to World Vision a charity that Elizabeth is an ambassador for and we are a World Vision band http://www.worldvision.org.uk/
You can follow the progress on the PledgeMusic website but please continue visiting us at www.sadieandthehotheads.com and our social media
Thank you so much for being a part of our journey.
