Ben Ales - Debut Album [The Fool]
Ben Ales - Debut Album [The Fool]

 

The aim of this campaign is to fund the production of my debut album The Fool.

L'obiettivo di questa campagna è finanziare la produzione del mio disco di debutto "The Fool"

This album will be my first one as Ben Ales, a solo songwriting project started in 2012 in London. 

Questo album sarà il primo come Ben Ales, un progetto solista iniziato a Londra nel 2012.

During the last 3 years, I have composed consistently in search of what I could consider my true sound and lyricism.

Negli ultimi 3 anni, ho composto costantemente nella ricerca di un suono e un liricismo che potesse rispecchiarmi.

Here a medley of most of the song that will be part of the Album.

Qui troverai un anteprima dei brani contenuti sul disco.

Risks and challenges

The challenge will be having the product ready before the end of July and ready for the official launch date event in August.

We organised the session planning each song in advance per day of recording to make sure that all the tracks reflect my expectation.

I will focus 100% on this project in order to ensure a successful outcome.

Fully produced by myself I'll be able to distribute all the rewards without the need for any approval.
