Dear friends and fans, I've been working hard this year songwriting, recording and touring in France. I've already recorded 5 covers as a demo for touring with my band Texas Martha and the House of Twang http://texasmartha.com/ . In fact, Texas Martha and the House of Twang are the #1 Americana band in France (Reverbnation). 

The band and I have recorded three new originals in Hesat Studios in Bordeaux and I've been working with Terry Bradford (UK) highly acclaimed producer of the Fureys and an extremely talented singer/songwriter/ musician in his own right. We've finished two songs together, Streets of Bordeaux (https://soundcloud.com/martygalloway/rues-du-bordeaux) and Long Way from Home (https://soundcloud.com/martyfields/long-way-from-home-1). 

Texas Martha and the House of Twang have had numerous concerts in France and I am thrilled that we are already booked across Europe (France, Switzerland and Spain for this spring, summer and fall of 2014) and I am planning a fall/winter 2014 American tour. I've already invested my own money (and blood, sweat and tears) into the the "Long Way from Home" album but I need your support in getting the album finished. 

I'm estimating that it will take about 10,000 (USD) to finish the album for studio time, musicians, mixing and mastering.  I'm thrilled that Nan Mcraven, my dear friend (and patron apparently) has offered a challenge grant to match up to 5,000 (USD) of the proceeds raised on Kickstarter. So that means your contributions will double.THANKS NAN!  I'll use this additional money for the necessary replication, artwork, promotional materials and publicity  after the album is completed. It is thrilling that I'm halfway there before I even start!

We have two CD release parties planned, one in Austin, Texas and one in Bordeaux, France for the fall of 2014.  I hope to see you at one of these events.  I've been so humbled by the support and faith that so many of you have had in me this year.   Thanks for helping make this dream come true! Marty

Risks and challenges

There is little risk involved in completing the album. Of course, there can some delays with the studio, scheduling musicians and publishing. We are already in the process of production and have deadlines to finish the cd for the summer festivals.
