Firstly, thank you. I'm grateful that you've taken the time to visit this page and read the words. Concave is a labor of love. It is a deep desire to create, to honor influences, to stoke imagination. Thanks to technology I can take a lifetime of tinkering, learning and fulfilling a desire to play multiple instruments to create something that typically takes several people to do. The end result: a challenging but hopefully pleasing musical experience. 

Because Concave is not a band in the traditional sense earning money to fund recording through staples like playing live and selling merchandise is limited.  I humbly ask for your participation and support by helping to fund the next Concave release.

If you are new to my music I invite you to download the previous Concave record "History Is The Future" available for name your own price at http://concave.bandcamp.com

The funds go towards 5 days of tracking in the studio plus mixing and mastering.  I will be handling production of physical items like CDs and merchandise that is offered in the rewards.  The record will have 8 tracks and will look something like this:

  • Keeping Score
  • If At First
  • Bastard's Smile
  • The Truth About Confusion
  • Dead Air
  • Dream Of The 90's
  • Because One Day We Will All Become Dust
  • Death Equals Death

Thank you again, I look forward to you sharing in this experience with me.

warm regards, James Findlay

Risks and challenges

Fortunately, because I have a great working relationship and friendship with Aaron Rauber of Franklin Street Recording Studio I do not foresee any complications with the production of the album. My previous album "History Is The Future" was funded entirely out of pocket and produced there with no issues.
