'Second Life' is my debut solo album which will be released in March 2017. It's a collection of songs that I've been working on for the past few years, self-produced and largely self-recorded, with the help of some friends and collaborators at different times. I'm trying to raise some funds to finish the mixing and mastering of the album.
Since the break-up of my former band, The Last Tycoons, I've written a couple of albums' worth of material and these songs have gone through several different guises before arriving at the point they're at now (over the next few weeks I'll share some of the different versions of songs with pledgers, demo versions, rough drafts etc). From this collection of songs I've selected 8 for my debut album which I think form a cohesive record. I released the first single from the album, 'Carmelita', at the end of 2015, thinking that the album wouldn't be far behind it but since then I've hit a few snags technically and financially, and now just need a small push to get it over the line. Any support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Risks and challenges
Most of the challenges involved in this record have been overcome already. All the recording is done and several of the songs are mixed. I have a couple of options for finishing the mixes, and if I don't have the money for them I'll mix it myself. Whatever happens, this album will be coming out next year.
That said, there are complications that can happen, particularly manufacturing vinyl. For example, there could be a problem with a test pressing and it needs to be sent back or re-mastered which can cause delays so I ask for people's patience in sending the physical copies of the album. I'll be sending out the downloads in the meantime so hopefully that will make the wait more bearable :)
