For the past year or two I have been writing songs for a new record, collaborating with some amazing writers and musicians to hone a collection of songs that I am really excited for you to hear!

Now it is time to record this new EP. I'm really excited to be working with producer Jonny Bird (Martin Smith / Army Of Bones), so you can be guaranteed a huge helping of guitars when we work together! The motto is 'Go Loud or Go Home'!

Here's a live video of one of the songs that will feature on the new record:

Instead of trying to persuade a record label to fund a project like this, I thought it would be amazing for you to be my record label, to be a part of making this project a reality. 

We have a week booked in the studio at the end of March to finalise the recordings, and then the record will be mixed and mastered in April. 

The aim is for a May/June release.

I want to be transparent over the use of the funds, so here is a quick rundown of the EP budget:

==

Producer/Musician/Studio Fees: £2300
Travel and Accommodation: £200
Mixing and Mastering: £800
Initial run of CDs: £200

Target: £3500*

*NOTE that Kickstarter and the payment processor Stripe deducts a fee amounting to around 9% of our funding goal, so that will affect our final budget, once the project is successfully funded. 

The EP is mainly going to be a digital release, so the limited run of CDs is for promotional purposes and the Kickstarter backers only. 

What happens if we raise more money than the target? 

Simple. The extra funds will go towards a music video, which all the backers will receive for free!

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the support - let's get sharing and see this project come to life!

Risks and challenges

The main risk with any creative endeavour is delays in the timescale. Hence I am working closely with Jonny Bird as producer to keep everything to deadlines. The songs are well prepared already, and the studio time has already been booked, so I am confident the EP will be mixed and mastered in April.

Of course if there are any unforeseen circumstances due to illness or similar, I will be in constant communication to all the backers with updates.
