Just 4 days left

May 2016



Hi pledgers,

Just wanted to thank you again for investing. It doesn't look like I will hit the overall target but as I am not in a gigging band building a fan base I sadly don't have a huge email list of addresses by which to promote it. I have had to rely on social media and people sharing the links.

However, your help has enabled me to crack on with the studio work and several tracks have advanced dramatically over the past few weeks. I am even considering setting a date for the album release as 1st July 2016 (exactly 100 years since the first day of the Battle of the Somme). I shall keep you posted on that one.

In the meantime, here is the latest version of a very short but important track in my story. I wanted to depict the troops marching through their town after signing up to fight en-mass. Friends, workmates and family members all rushed to join up in the early months of the war - the Pals Battalions as they were known.

Conscription didn't actually come into force until late spring of 1916. This track is designed to depict the patriotic nature of those early soldiers and their excitement at going off on such a big 'adventure'. The track is yet to be mixed or mastered but I hope you like it.

NB. I sounds better on headphones that on your average computer speakers :-)
