Update! We have a couple of spots left on the couples picnic. If you want to nab these, the picnic will take place before the Sunday 15 September Soul Fam gig. Also, we now have one spot left for the VIP Soul Fam package including a song request and dedication.

Got an idea for a pledge that isn't up there? Get in touch through the Kickstarter message service or email natkickstarter@gmail.com. 

If you've got this far, chances are you've been to a few of my gigs, so the first thing I want to say is thank you so much for your support and your loyalty. I've been so lucky to have such an encouraging network of fans and friends.

Now the exciting bit! Over the past couple of years, I've been collaborating with the amazing pianist, Tom Cawley. We've been busy beavering away, writing lots of songs that I'm so proud of. The songs are a slight change of direction to my previous releases. I wanted to create something intimate and personal, based around a small band, returning to my jazz roots, whilst still fully embracing the 'Nat' sound that you know well. Have a listen below!

These songs are really special to me and I'm so excited to share with you. It's now time for me to get this music out there and I need your help to do that! Making an album is costly and I can't release it without your support. Besides, an album funded by the people who want to hear my music makes sense to me and feels special. Plus, you get access to the music long before our general release in October! Those who know me, know that I'm a hard worker - so I'm not asking for money for nothing. I've thought of lots of fun ways to give back to you for the pledges you make! Take a look at the rewards on the right. But CHOOSE your reward carefully, cos you can only pledge once! However you can pledge as much as you like over the amount, should you wish to. 

Here is where your money goes (the boring bit):  Studio hire, sound engineers fees, musicians fees, mixing, mastering, licensing fees, album design and photography, album pressing, marketing, advertising & digital media costs and perhaps most importantly, PR costs - I really believe in this album and I think it deserves to be heard.

Risks and challenges

Everyone involved in the album wants to make sure that we treat you well and that we run the project transparently. In the unlikely event we can't fulfil a pledge, we will immediately offer your money back. Some rewards require specific dates to be fixed with you, which isn't always straightforward. So please do feel free to email Fran at natkickstarter@gmail.com if you have any questions before you pledge.
