Barluath are embarking on an epic journey, nay quest, and they are looking towards their second album. The band want to retain control of their own material and own the final product... and the galaxy (different kickstarter fund). This will allow the band to keep the album their own work and make the music that they love.
To do this without the help of a recording label it requires significant financial backing and this is where we turn to you. We need you!
We need to raise £2500 to get us off to a start on recording our album. This might not sound like a lot to get a full album recorded and printed, but we will also be funding the rest of the cost from our own coffers, in addition to proceeds from our first album "Source".
We will be going into the recording studio in October to begin recording and hope to release the finished album in January 2015.
Risks and challenges
Some of the challenges we have faced:
Pushing boundaries and finding material that is original but still connected to our tradition: As graduates from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland we have all had some of the best teachers and have been exposed to the tradition so that we may treat our material sensitively. All of us are active musicians and as such are always finding and creating new material.
Self Representation: Until this year, all of our gigs have been booked and managed by the band. This has given us the skill set to release our album and promote it to its full potentialLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
