About this project

I am LUKE BENNETT, an experimental fingerstyle guitarist based in Brighton. I moved to Brighton from my hometown of Cardiff in September to pursue a career in music by studying at BIMM. I've recorded one full length studio album named 'Automaton'.  

I was lucky enough to have lots of help and advice from my peers when recording 'Automaton' and produced a great sounding album in a short space of time. I have finished writing the follow up. The new EP will be called 'Natural Nomadic', and features some of my most ambitious work to date. As you all know, making an EP isn't cheap. I was lucky enough to have friends help me on my last album and it didn't cost that much to make thanks to those guys.

I am now a broke ass student and won't be able to take money straight out of my pocket to make this one happen. I feel that if I had a solid budget behind me I could do it at a great studio with an awesome producer and make it the best sounding it deserves to be.

Demos of all 5 tracks will be made available to hear in the coming months once they have been recorded. I can reveal that this EP will have a full band, plus extra care will be taken in the artwork and recording to ensure that the EP will be of the highest possible quality.

If you pledge, you will get whatever you've paid for PLUS your name in the liner notes on the CD. It is worth noting, ignore the estimated delivery date as I am still unsure of when it will all be recorded and ready to go. I'm hoping it'll be before then, I just had to put a date to carry on with the campaign.

Risks and challenges

In the event that anyone I have enlisted should pull from the project, I have a plethora of talented friends/ artists/ studio engineers who would be willing to step in and help out!
