NEW ALBUM PRE ORDER CAMPAIGN

As an artist I am at a crucial point in my career.

My last three albums have been made on small budgets, as an indie artist in small rooms over an extended period of time, and mostly solo or with one or two others at any given time. I’m proud of those records, especially “Seven Day Cure” and the fact that I’ve survived through what has been a very hard time for everyone in terms of economy but especially the Music Industry as it has adapted and re-invented itself into the digital age.

So what now?

Arguably my best-loved albums are “Vine Street Stories” and “Here Comes The Caviar”. Both have a feel and a sense of time and place that has been hard to replicate. I wrote all those songs and road tested them with a band that I had worked with a lot.. before we recorded them!

We recorded those albums over a short time-frame, with a producer, old school, with the whole band laying down tracks together. You just can’t beat the feel you get recording that way no matter how much technology and time you take over it.

So, the plan is this.

I have been writing new songs for two years, on the piano and the guitar and playing them every chance I get, road testing and honing. In March I will tour the new tunes and warm up the vocal chords and musical chops. In May 2015 we will spend a week recording those songs in an old school world class studio here in Los Angeles. We will have a collection of amazing musicians from NZ and California. We’ll hang out and play music and at the end of it, we’ll hopefully have something special recorded.

How you can help…

When I asked you two years ago to take a leap of faith and BUY an album I hadn’t even recorded, 480 of you stepped forward, placed your trust in me, and helped launch an idea that is still being talked about in music industry circles.

I am asking you again to take that leap again and pre-order the new album. We have a ton a great exclusives to ‘pledge’ on including hand written lyric sheets, CDs of unreleased demos, my stage piano and trusty lamp and a weekend in LA in the studio.

Our target is to raise $30,000. The money will be used to pay for a week in a top class studio, hire a producer and a top mix engineer, pay and feed the musicians including two or three we will fly up from NZ, filming the recording, Artwork and manufacturing CD’s
