Hello!

Welcome to 'Cracks', my fifth album.

I'm super happy with it and I honestly think it's my best yet.

The money raised through this campaign will contribute towards manufacturing costs, recording costs and artwork costs.

It will also contribute towards travel costs, which are always high. This year there are three tours of Europe planned, plus a tour of Japan.

As I say in the video, I have the confirmed backing of German label Red Wig, French label Moncul and (I'm honoured to say) 'Cracks' will also be the first ever release on Spanish label Bar Marfil. I have worked before with Red Wig and Moncul. Delighted to be with them again.

For the last few years, I have toured extensively as a DIY musician, playing inspiring places and meeting inspiring people and communities. It's not always an easy way to operate, but it works and the rewards are great - as an artist and as a human being (one and the same thing, eh?)

If you don't know me already, here's a video of a song that will appear on the forthcoming album:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv9oitB2Mf0 

And here's my bandcamp page, where you can listen to all the previous albums (and a collaborative single with Minutemen bass legend Mike Watt):  https://howiereeve.bandcamp.com/ 

Here is the website of the cover artist, Rocco Lombardi:  http://lalberosfregiato.blogspot.com/ 

Rocco Lombardi limited edition two colour silk screen art print. (Nice, eh?)

This will be my fifth album release. 

All of the previous albums (and a tour) have been successfully funded by kickstarter campaigns in the past. 

I tentatively and humbly hope that will happen again with this wee campaign.

Risks and challenges

Release is confirmed as a joint effort by all three record labels.
Catalogue numbers have been given: rw043; TOFU178; BM01.
In terms of my contributions, I have trust and agreements with the record labels, the recording engineers and the cover artist.
I am running this campaign as an individual but very much have a solid network of support among experienced friends helping to make this lp a reality.
