Ladies and Gentlemen – Bill’s Lost Love,

It is my absolute pleasure to introduce to you – Bill’s Lost Love the Animated Music Video by Sarah Eddowes!

This video is 6 months in the making and has been made possible by all of the incredible people who donated to my crowd-funding campaign several months back. Using a combination of mediums and majority clay figurines, Sarah has succeeded in bringing the words in my song to life. I feel extremely honoured and humbled  that I get to have this piece of art associated with my music.

Enjoy and share it around.

Greetings,
Now that I’m at the 50% mark of my Pozible Campaign, it’s time for another big update.

Here’s a video:

If you decided against the video, allow me to fill you in…

 

New Tracks

I’ve just put out another 2 songs from the album. This makes a total of 4 songs now available for your listening pleasure. There is currently a whole new EP’s worth of music to listen to months before an official album release!

About the tracks:

Bill’s Lost Love – A dreamy, folk song with lush instrumentation and a driving narrative. This one is getting animated into a music video

Dead Man Walking – A raw, Americana style song set in the mind of a man on death row.

Freeride Train Blues – A slow-driving acoustic blues featuring banjo, upright bass and dobro.

Set in Stone (feat. Alison Avron) – A duet about new love, featuring the wonderful talents of Alison Avron. And also violin, cello, piano. Here’s a link to Alison Avron’s website.


 

New Pozible Reward

Against my better judgement, I’ve decided to add a reward to this campaign which has the potential to end me. For $40, I’m giving people the opportunity to request any song they like. Anything. I will then learn that song, record it for youtube, and dedicate it to you at the beginning of the video. As I said, I’m willing to learn any song. This is a golden opportunity at an extremely fair price. Go to the page and scroll down the right column until you see the reward. OK GO.

 

 A Name for the Album

I’ve officially decided on a name for my debut album. It’s called… drum roll……. ‘Set in Stone‘. Named after one of the tracks that I’ve put out today, I chose it because the title simply fit. This album was always going to be called ‘Set  in Stone’, I just didn’t know it yet.

 

::::TLDR::::

** New Music! There are now officially 4 songs up and listenable for this album.
** New $40 reward where you can request ANY song and I’ll learn it, record it, dedicate to you on Youtube.
** The album is now called ‘Set in Stone’.


Finally, Thank You to everyone that has supported this project so far! If you haven’t yet and intend on doing so, don’t delay! …And tell your friends! With your support, we can reach this goal.

Help me reach my Pozible Campaign target and pledge!

Erskineville Hive Bar Residency

If anyone was wondering how things are going with my Hive Bar Residency, it’s been going awesome. In fact, I’ve turned many of the nights into a bit of a jam by encouraging friends to bring along their instruments. I’ve even collaborated on a couple of the weeks with the guy doing every other Tuesday – Marc O’Connor. Many, many good times had.

On the topic of Marc O’Connor, he’s gone back to Ireland for a month or so, which means that I’ll be taking over his Tuesdays and doing it as a weekly thing for the next month or so. 

If you’re in the area, come along. I kick the music off at 7pm. For more in-depth information, check out the post prior to this one.

Back to the Pozible Campaign.

Again to my crowd-funding campaign.. If you enjoy some of the DIYs that I post on here or even the music that I create. Please consider pledging to my album. I’ve also got some fantastic rewards up there.

Until next time,

Speak soon
