My career as rock guitarist and songwriter started in the UK. In the late sixties I was playing with “The King Biscuit Blues Band” and then I became a founder member of the legendary rock band “Wishbone Ash”. The inventive harmonies and twin guitar work I created during this time with colleague Andy Powell resulted in the two of us being named as “Two of the Ten most important guitarists in rock history”. Some of you have been with me since my Wishbone Ash days and some of us met more recently.
Regardless of when we first connected, we are all seeing the music industry go through changes. Or rather, music consumption has changed and much of the industry has not. I’ve been through it all, I’ve done major-label releases and been a part of the big tours and I’ve lived the life on the road.
This year is the 40th anniversary of the 1st Wishbone Ash Album, making this the perfect time for Eclektic Value which is the name of my first solo record. And by “solo” I mean SOLO. I play all the instruments you’ll hear on the album. In fact the entire album is being produced on a laptop using the latest recording software.
But I didn’t set out to do project entirely alone. I’m setting off on a musical journey and seeking a select few of my closest fans to join me. Together, we will reflect on the past and how it’s led us to where we are now, and then we’ll shoot straight into the future, creating new and exciting concepts together, this journey is open exclusively to a group of my most dedicated fans.
As the journey progresses, I’ll share demo tracks and updates from the studio with you. I will keep you updated with everything that is going on. I might put on a special concert for Pledgers only. You may even get VIP passes to see me play a major music festival, along with Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash in London this July if you decide to make that level of pledge.
As you can see on the right, I’m putting together a wide range of unique things that you can make a pledge for showing your commitment to the journey. I will be adding many more as the journey progresses. . .
As a part of this musical journey, you’ll see the creation of Turneround Records, a brand new form of music label, a label that I have designed truly for the internet age. I’ll be seeking out new bands and artists to develop, release and work with me as producer, as musician and in many cases as mentor.
You’re invited to join me on the journey, you’ll be able to become uniquely involved with the launch of my album Eclektic Value and Turneround Records, enabling you to become a real part of the new music industry and be able to participate in a way that no other music label has ever allowed before, you’ll be actively involved the process of selection, production, release and promotion of new brand music.
While we’re doing this, we’re also doing something extremely important – we’re raising money for Food For The Hungry, we can’t let children go hungry. Food for the Hungry implements transformational development programs in impoverished communities around the world. I will be working with them to promote their work and you can also help after all we should all be giving something back.
So if you a fan of great music, if you remember Wishbone Ash, if you have a passion for the music business and want to be a part of this exciting journey, please review the wide range of items that you can pledge for and become a part of Eclektic Value.
Join me on the journey.
