About this project

Once upon a time there was a band. And the band was good. Then came the job. And a beautiful wife. And amazing little people. And the music went from being a dream to a hobby to an occasional whim to something I did last year. 

Life happened. 

Over the last five years I've been working hard to reverse that trend. I've learnt to sing. And to write on my own. Ideas took shape. A style of my own slowly formed. Confidence and belief developed. A new course was plotted.  

From the ashes, a collection of twenty tracks in the form of five EPs has emerged that collectively form the "Re: Awake" project. Themed around the intense and conflicting dynamics of a close, personal relationship, "January", "Polaroid", "Incision", "Wayside" and "Bridges" will be recorded sequentially to give the project the time and space it needs to find its own identity and feel. 

The little people are not so little any more. But they are just as amazing. And demanding of what spare funds and energy that I have. 

Kickstarter could change that. You could change that.

Risks and challenges

The songs are largely written and structured so in some respects much of the hard part is done. Each one needs to be fleshed out but from experience, I know that will only happen when the pressure is really on and when I can harness the input of others. I've had a lot of recording and engineering experience from the band I was in for almost a decade so both studio time and any additional home engineering should run well. The only stumbling block at the moment is lack of funds for equipment and access to expertise and space to make it happen. The hardest part will be finding guest musicians to put additional tracks down but I work at a school and have a lot of friends and contacts through the Music Department. Once the ball is rolling, things should unfold nicely - especially with the funds to adequately pay people for their time and talents.
