Hello friends – I have some news!

I’m extremely excited to announce the launch of the crowdfunding campaign for my third album “Direction Of Travel”, in partnership with PledgeMusic. So excited in fact that the first 50 pledgers will automatically get their name in the album credits as a thank you for their support!

My last album “Little Battles” was successfully funded in this way and ever since, people come up to me at gigs to ask when I’m going to start raising money for the next record. Thank you to those people for showing such interest and support!

I wanted to wait until I had a decent number of the album tracks written and demoed before setting up this campaign, and the time is now right to invite you to get involved. 5 songs are finished and demoed so far, and many more semi-finished songs are ready and waiting for me to get stuck in to them this summer. I’m currently reviewing studio and production options, have a list of my dream guest musicians in my head and am already starting to plan the cover art and videos.

The money raised from this Pledge campaign will go towards studio time, guest musicians (live drums, piano, strings and more) and music videos, and I’ll be stumping up the rest of the cash as well as continuing to work on promoting the project online.

I’ve come up with a fairly dizzying list of Pledger rewards, so please have a good browse and see what piques your interest. My favourite rewards last time were the ones where we got to hang out, so there’s lots more of that sort of thing as well as beautiful printed items to accompany the new music itself. I’m looking forward to sharing sneak peeks of the album in audio and video form throughout the process too, and everyone who pledges gets access to the backstage area where you can also let me know what kind of updates you’d like to see.

The “Little Battles” campaign was an amazing experience – knowing there was a group of people there rooting for me was the best feeling, and I hope I can get you even more involved this time.

I feel so ready to focus on getting this album out of my head and in to your ears, I couldn’t be more excited about the new songs and I’m looking forward to embarking on this musical adventure with you. Thanks for reading, and please share this link with your friends!
