I am coming to play some songs as part of the Summer Warm Up Tour. That’s a thing we’re doing with Summer in the City – trying to get out across the country to reach more people. If it’s well supported we’ll keep doing it and add even more cities next year!
An instrumental track I wrote
There is a new thing I’m doing. It’s a website called Patreon, which has been set up by YouTube legend Jack Conte. It’s kind of like kickstarter, but rather than pledging towards one big production, you pledge towards people who make smaller things more regularly.
I’ve set up a page for people to help support my songwriting. Basically the deal is every time I write a new song, you pay me $1 and I send you a demo of the song. So it’s really just agreeing to buy songs off me in advance. You can also pledge higher amounts and get extra rewards if you’re really into it! Just check out the page to see what they are.
Don’t worry if you haven’t got the money to be sending me dollars – I’ll still be making YouTube videos and releasing music in the same ways I have been – this is just for those who can afford it to help me turn songwriting into my career.
Thanks to all the people who have already signed up as patrons, and everyone who’s helped me over the years. I’m really excited about this idea, think it could be a real game-changer if enough people get behind it!
New video for an old song!
CDs – itunes – bandcamp
I had this idea to cover a song that I hadn’t heard before.
Just to prove how down with the kids I am, here’s a cover of a smash hit single (from about 10 years ago)
You can download the mp3 here.
Also, people who live in or near Brighton – have a look here.
The RNLI are putting on a show at Audio in Brighton. I’m playing at it with several other acts including Charlie Simpson of Busted fame! You should totally come. Tickets can be found here.
There’s also a competition running to find one more act for the gig, so if you fancy playing on the same bill as yours truly (and that Charlie guy) head on over to the facebook page and enter the competition!
See you there. x
EDIT: There’s now a facebook event page so you can confirm your attendance and invite your friends.
