About

Hi,

Welcome to our kickstarter campaign. We are Billow Wood, a band from the West of Ireland. We are currently embarking on recording and releasing our debut studio album.

We have been working hard towards reaching our goal of recording and releasing our original debut studio album. This has been something that we set to accomplish by February 2020. We have been working on writing Billow Wood material for the past two years and are now in the process of recording. 

So a little about us; Billow Wood is comprises of Bríd O'Donnell, Ciara O'Donnell, Harry Lawlor and Mark O'Donnell. We have been surrounded and brought up on folk and traditional Irish music from a very young age. Our energetic live performance can be attributed to playing in family bands growing up. 

We now focus on fusing Folk/Trad/Indie and Pop elements to create a new unique sound that we are fortunate enough to showcase around the world. Our music so far has brought us to every corner of Ireland and we have traveled extensively throughout Europe to countries such as Germany, France, Austria and Holland to name a few. 

We had an amazing experience travelling to the continents of Africa and North America, which were two extreme cultural experiences for us. We count ourselves very lucky to be able to showcase our original music around the world.

We have since traveled to North America more frequently showcasing our music at various festivals and music venues. We are excited to see where our new album is going to take us, and the people and characters we are going to meet on our journey. 

Although the life of a musician may sound glamours, it is a very demanding occupation, with many set backs, rejections and failures. The rewards for this job can sometimes be little to none. However, we are determined and honored to continue creating music and showcasing to audiences around the world.

So this is where you come in. We are looking for your assistance, to complete the recording and promotion of our debut album. We are not looking for donations, but to purchase rewards such as signed hard copies of the albums to full house concerts. Your pledges will help to partially fund the process and bring our album to life. We are very dedicated to our craft and feel we have something quite unique to offer. 

We look forward to bringing you on this journey with us.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who pledges to our kickstarter campaign, and we really hope you enjoy our new music as much as we enjoyed creating it .

Thanks a million folks,

Bríd, Ciara, Harry and Mark

Billow Wood

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk we face is not being able to fund the remaining of the recording of the album, along with printing and promoting our work. All the tracks for this album have been written and arranged and just waiting for us to get into studio. So we hope with your help we can see this project through to the end.
