The Next Album...

First, an old live recording with Dan See and Dan Gulino (the Dans) at the Pigalle Club in London. Oh how times have changed.

As we try to shake off the dirt from being knocked down in 2020 we look ahead to the next chapter, which here means finishing what we started together with 'the dans' all those years ago.

We've since found 'pocket master' Dan Gulino's hiding spot and verbally committed him to assign his fingers the task of playing the bass, and as always Dan See sits fixed ready to reinstall his status as the 'spirit drummer'.

In order to be able to book the studio, pay the musicians, master the album, and release it (digitally) all independently, we humbly ask your financial assistance upfront. In return there will of course be a free album download for all contributors, and a chance to take part in a livestream Q&A session previewing the album, and for those who put in more than £20: a free ticket to the eventual launch show in London. Feel free to give as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.

Edit: Since starting to work on new demos I've realised that in order for us to stand a chance of leaving the studio with a finished sounding album, we'll need the wizardry input of Steve Pringle (keys, piano, synth on 'Here I Am and There You Are') so the costing has changed below. We've now secured a session in May at top London studio: Master Chord and I'm very happy to add that due to fan support we already have this cost covered.

Supporting this album enables me to hold onto the rights instead of typically signing away 50% to a record label and publisher in order to fund it. I am much happier giving some of those rights to my band instead, having learnt recently that session musicians receive nothing from streaming - which has become a main source of income in recent years for many artists including myself.

Basic costs:
4 days Recording / 2 days rehearsal:
Master Chord Studio + Engineer = £2,400
3 Musician fees / £150 per day = £2,700
Running total = £5,100

Other considerations:
- Mixing / Mastering
- Rehearsal Room for 2 days
- Promotion

Thank you for visiting! For the love of music,
let's do something great together in 2021.
