Jonny & The Baptists: New Live Album for 2019

We are asking directly for help to make our next album, to accompany our 2019 show "Jonny & the Baptists Love You and Hate Bastards".

It's a collection of 15 songs about tribalism, factionalism, love and friendship in this time of discord and opposition. We're going to record the album live in front of an audience on Weds 3rd July at the The Phoenix, in London. We need to pay for the producer, engineers, equipment hire and production to make the recording; and then the costs of pressing the CDs and their cases to a very high-quality.

We don't have the kind of financial resources to pay for this upfront and recoup it from selling the album in the autumn, and that's why we need your help! Nor do we want to lose our independence and sign to a record label that could pay upfront for costs, but demand a higher-percentage of our frugal earnings and possibly limit our freedom to write whatever we want.

So if you like what we do, or what we have to say, or just like us, please help us out and make this record happen! 

We love you.

Risks and challenges

We've written it - we're ready to record it! The only thing that might hinder us recording it is the kickstarter not getting fully funded, so it's sort of all or nothing! If it's funded - we are a-go-go.
