About



I'm a songsmith in Birmingham, England with a bit of history… Along the years I have been in some class groups - such as The Ugly’s, Magnum and Electric Light Orchestra. Now in 2019, I am looking to kickstart (!!) my new album. 

‘SEVEN’ has got seven great songs on it (plus a fab bonus track), it’s my seventh CD album and I want to release it on July 7 this year. It is almost ready to go but it needs mastering, artwork and video production. The plan is to release digitally on all platforms (Spotify, iTunes etc) with physical CD sales managed by Tunecore or CDbaby. Be aware that the budget I am asking for is for a minimalist release, not big-time like ELO. There’s no outlay for advertising apart from social media (Facebook etc). 


        I work from my home studio called ‘Grimm Doo’, which is also the label name under which SEVEN will be released. As well as writing, recording and gigging, I also keep my hand in as a Flight Instructor.
        Have a listen to the sound-bite samples. If you like what you hear, please join with me to get my music produced this July. My heart is to get this music available to the big wide world out there. Thanks for reading this far and if you feel able to come along side me, please choose a pledge, and remember, it won't cost you anything unless the project meets its goal by the deadline!

Risks and challenges

The risk in this kind of enterprise is in the fact it is an art form - you can never be sure if people will like what you are doing. Really this website's methodology - seeking the up-front support of prospective customers - is a great way to limit the inherent risk. Making music is an onerous investment in resources and time even before the hard cash needed is looked at. In my case the songs are already written, the studio time has mostly already been accrued. In this, the final stage, I'm asking my fans to be in the loop with me, and I hope I don't offend them in this. I guess I'll find out!
