Hi. Dave Scott-Morgan here. I'm a song-smith in Birmingham, England with a bit of history… Along the years I have been part of some class acts - such as The Ugly’s, Magnum and Electric Light Orchestra. Now in 2019, I am looking to kickstart my new MOrganisation album SEVEN, made with love, lots of tea, and the help of my great music creation tribe.
‘SEVEN’ has got seven great songs on it (plus a fab bonus track), and I want to release it on the seventh day of the seventh month 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 my Indie label name under which SEVEN will be released. As well as writing, recording and gigging with MOrganisation, I also keep my hand in as a Flight Instructor.
Have a listen to the sound-bite samples above. If you like what you hear, please join the team and help it get completed this July. My heart is to make 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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
