The Baby Blues

Pre-order the debut album from visual artist Daryl Waller. Lots of extra content available!

Dear Pledger,

My name is Daryl Waller and I’m a visual artist from Cornwall, UK.

In 2008 I turned my attention to creating music and sound for the first time. Now, six years and many demos later, I call upon your “pre-order help” in order to be able to release my debut album, ‘The Baby Blues’, into the world.

You can buy the album on a lovely looking CD…. but there is also a whole host of extra content, including the acoustic guitar used to create the record, a limited edition album poster, an original watercolour painting, lyric sheets, secret notes and much, much more.

I recorded this album between 2010 and 2013 in my art studio in London and a hired beach chalet in Hayle, Cornwall. It took a long time and was a tough but rewarding mission. I didn’t think I’d ever make it…. and almost deliberately erased the whole project on two occasions, convinced it was a wasted effort. I’m glad I stuck it out. If I can do it anyone can.

The album features synth from Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), drums from Chad Matheny (Emperor X), spoken word from film-maker Philipp Virus, cello from Rob Williams and vocals from Erica Jarnes.

The record was mastered by Pete Lyman, Infrasonic Sound in 2014 and is ready for pressing. Long live artwork and physical objects and artefacts!

I hope you can help me make this album become a reality.

Thank you!

Daryl x
