The Pooches from Glasgow, Scotland plan to write a song for every pet the world over to help fund finishing their debut album.
My name is James William Hindle. I was a moderately unsuccessful singer-songwriter through the 2000s. I released a bunch of albums, toured the world - well, America and London - with my friends in of Montreal and Ladybug Transistor and was used to soundtrack scenes of emotional teen intensity on such TV shows as The OC and One Tree Hill.
Since moving to Glasgow a few years ago I became somewhat musically stagnant for a long period of time. BUT, this has now changed. With my new project - The Pooches - I have found a new lease of creative life. I have recorded a new album over the last 3 months and it's pretty good. I would even go so far as to say I love it. And I really want you to listen to it and love it too.
Which is where I need your help. Having recorded the whole album for nothing at home, I now need to get it mixed and mastered professionally so I can really do these new recordings justice. As I am sure most of you know, stuff like this isn't cheap so I am asking you guys - fans, friends, foes - to pitch in to get this pooch off the ground!
I hope you enjoyed the song on here...it's a bit silly, but what the heck. You get the general idea!
RIP JWH...long live The Pooches!

I will aim to write and record the song for your pet as soon as is humanly possible, however this will depend on receiving the image and story about them from the backer. If by some miracle I end up receiving dozens of requests, it may take me a wee bit longer to do each song justice, but I will keep in touch with you via email regarding the status of your song.
