A Cluster of Narratives

By James O Connor Music


Plans are underway to start recording new music. With the support of you the funder I would love to once again capture some of my latest songs in the studio.

Music has always been a labor of love and I've been focused on creating original songs which is extremely satisfying for me. The new release will contain some of my finest songwriting to date.

Since the success of my last Fund it campaign I have realised how genuinely supportive you all are of not only my music but to me personally and for that I am so grateful. In order to continue this process I would ask if you could pledge whatever you can to keep the art of creating original music alive. 

Here's a break down of projected costs of the project:

3 days recording x €250
2 days mixing x €125

Mastering tracks 10 X €50

Duplication of 250 units =€380

8% Successful fundit campaign =€150.40

Total =€2030.40

I will be covering additional costs that arise due to rewards including postage, packaging and courier services.

Once successful I will go ahead and commence recording. My only real concern would be on allowing enough time in the studio to complete all the tracks as sometimes things take longer to capture. I have given it three days and I will make an arrangement with the engineer regarding my concerns with this timeline so as not to have to rush or sacrifice the quality of the work. I will also be contributing from my own pocket to compensate for any unforeseen delays or problems surrounding the project which may arise along the way. 

I want to thank each and every one of my supporters who have always been so encouraging and positive towards my music. It really does mean an awful lot to me to know that your generosity will once again be a part of something very close to my heart and to show my appreciation all funders names will be credited on the physical release.



Exciting News!

Dear Funders,

I hope this message finds you all safe and well. I want to update you with some very exciting news.

Its hard to believe how quickly time has passed since this project began in March of 2018, but I have continued working on recording the songs whenever I got to the studio during that period.

When I started initially to record the songs it was going in one direction, until I sat down with producer Owen Geaney and studio owner Ollie Plunkett. Together we decided to push the album in a whole different direction altogether. This meant that even more time and effort would be required in order to achieve the desired sound, and Im proud to say we have certainly achieved this.

To make a long story short, I wanted to tell you that Its finally finished. As I write to you this morning the tracks and artwork have been sent away to the Duplication company. I have set the official release date for Friday 3rd of July but I expect to get a signed physical copy of the CD to you before then,as soon as I have recieved the finished product I will get it straight out to you.

I will be in touch with each funder, regarding postal info and fulfilling your rewards. Unfortunately I will not be able to have a live perfomance of the album due to the pandemic situation, but I will come up with something that wmight work online instead. You might also be happy to hear that each of your names has been credited on the album cover. 

Finally, thank you all so much again for your patience and kind generosity, none of this would have made it this far without you,

Best Wishes,

James O' Connor




"Slowly but surely"

Hello funny funders,

I hope this message finds you all in good health and enjoying the beautiful summer we have been getting so far. I have been very busy over the last few months on many different projects so my appologies for not posting an update sooner.

Ive been involved in so much recently, including songwriting workshops, summer camps, performances as well as teaching, writing and recording.

You will be pleased to hear that "A Cluster of Narratives" is heading in the right direction albeit slowly but surely it is taking shape and its going to be an album that I know you will thoroughly enjoy.

It will take longer than Id initially estimated to complete but I dont mind to be honest because at least I know Im not trying to rush it to have a finished project. I want to give it the attention it deserves and be totally satisfied before its released to the public.

Thats all for now folks, so in the meantime stay safe and sound and keep the best side out. Thanks for your patience and support.

Kindest Regards,

I can't thank you enough for continuing to believe in me and what I'm trying to achieve with my music.
