This project is a double pronged attack!

First, I want to record my debut five track EP with a full band at the end of this month. My music is acousticy/bluesy/funky (at times!).

The reason this is happening now is that I have the opportunity to use some supremely talented creative professionals both on the musical side and engineering side for much less than they normally charge which is why my (financial) goal is so modest.

So, the money raised will pay for an engineer to record, mix and master a broadcast quality EP featuring my songs played by myself and top-quality musicians.

Secondly, I want to tour this and other material in people's homes through house concerts in the UK in May because music is about playing live and affecting people for a moment! Any money left over from recording/printing the EP will then help me to travel around the UK for a month of touring.

Risks and challenges

As a full-time musician for the last 3 years I have dealt with every single challenge that can come about from working with other musicians (even professionals!). From late arrivals to not showing up to sessions I have experienced it all and thankfully have managed to find musicians who are not only seriously good at what they do but also exceedingly professional which is why they get so much work!

Risks and challenges with touring? Watch "spinal tap"! I will be touring by myself so don't think I can really get into much trouble… In all seriousness, I typically play 150 gigs a year so know what I need to do to be professional, perform well and get booked again!
