Hi, my name is Stephen Mahon, I am bass player and songwriter based in Waterford, Ireland, Over the course of the past twenty years I have played with various bands, released albums and singles as a group effort with bands such as Shane Barry and The Distractions, Dirty 10to1 and Band of Clouds, This will be the first time I have tried to release something myself independantly, 

The current project is a John Frusciante cover that was recorded by myself (Stephen Mahon) with the help of some friends from around the world, My hope is to release the track as a seven inch single along with another track on the second side of the vinyl, 

If  the project is successful the funds will go towards the production of 250 gatefold sleeve 7" vinyl, I have spoken with Disc Manufacturing Services Limited based in the UK about production of the vinyl and have received the quote from them, they estimate after funds are received at their end it would take approximately 6 weeks to manufacture the vinyl and ship to my address in Ireland http://www.discmanufacturingservices.com 

Also the single I am planning on releasing is a cover of a John Frusciante song who is a past member of Red Hot Chili Peppers, I am heavily involved with the online Red Hot Chili Peppers fan community and I admin a fan page on Facebook, Red Hot Chili Peppers Collectors Page which has over 4,000 followers at present and I also run a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan website www.aradiojoe.com which specialises in Chili Peppers fan video projects which we produce DVDs for, we are now hoping to add vinyl singles to our website, 

This project has been made a reality thanks to the contributions of many friends,
