Get involved and help promote the latest soulful album from Bristol-based producer Andy Compton.

Hi. My name’s Andy Compton and I’ve been making music for over two decades. I have my own independent record label, Peng, and have released no fewer than 29 albums. As the vast majority of musicians will tell you, making a living from music is hard work and a constant challenge, but it's what I love doing so have no plans to stop.

My latest album, released under the name 'COMPTON', is called ‘Bristol Boogie’. It’s a love letter to smooth 80s groove and I’m incredibly proud of it. While producing the album I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with some super talented musicians and singers, including Ladybird, Sabrina Chyld, Celestine, and Incognito’s Katie Leone. It’s been a blast.

You can hear more of the Bristol Boogie album here.

Bristol Boogie is available to buy digitally right now, but I’ve put so much into making the album I want to give it an extra big promotional push to really make it shine and get it noticed. I want the sweet sounds of Bristol Boogie to be heard and enjoyed by as many groovers, soul-heads and devotees of quality tunes as possible.

Unfortunately, as an independent musician with no big label support, I simply don’t have the finances to make this happen on my own, so I need people who believe in good music to get involved and make a pledge.

What the money will be used for:

  • Remixes: Pay for a guest producer to remix a track from the album
  • Vinyl 12”: As well as being available digitally, the remixed track will be released as a limited edition vinyl
  • Videos: Record high quality promotional videos for two tracks from the album
  • Launch party: A night of good music and good times in a Bristol venue to celebrate the release of the Bristol Boogie album and remixes

What will you get for making a pledge?

As well as my eternal thanks for your support, anyone pledging will, in return, receive something from me. The pledge rewards include a full digital copy of the Bristol Boogie album (pledging here is the cheapest way to get it), signed 12” vinyl of the Bristol Boogie remixes, the chance for you to be credited as Executive Producer on a professional music video, and the opportunity to book myself for a private DJ set.

Have a look at the full breakdown of all the pledge rewards on the right-hand side of the page. Hopefully there’s something which catches your eye and matches your budget. I’ve tried to put together a collection of rewards which are genuinely worth making a pledge for.

And if you can’t afford to pledge you can still give support by simply sharing this fund-raising project on Twitter, Facebook, and even via good old fashioned word-of-mouth! All help is warmly appreciated.

Thanks for your support.
