Aoife Scott - New Album

By Aoife Scott




About Aoife and New Album 

Hi Everybody, I'm a folk singer songwriter and I'm about to embark on the journey of recording my second album. Since making my first album I have literally been on the road, gigging all over the world - from France to Fiji, and It has been the most incredible journey. I'm really excited and so grateful to be here and ready to record.

This new album is one that has been developing for the past 3 years while we have been touring with my first album "Carry The Day". We've been collecting songs/writing songs/collecting ideas and I'm really excited to be able to go in to the studio to record now.
The first album took a long time to make, and I learned so much from the process.
Also I learnt so much from crowdfunding the album, and how crowdfunding can help with everyone getting involved from the very beginning.

This time around I feel a bit stronger, a bit braver, and very grateful for where I am today.

What I've been doing since the release of the 1st Album  - Carry The Day

The past 3 years I've spent on the road with Andy Meaney, my partner, touring the album "Carry the Day" with the lovely lads in my band. We have been very lucky. We've toured Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and driven the whole width of United States on a nationwide tour. Myself and Andy have been writing songs, collecting songs all along the way. I've also been writing with Enda Reilly again (Co-writer of songs on "Carry the Day"). This time we've gotten the chance to work with Ron Block of Union Station (Alison Krauss) and we can't wait to start work with him.

Crowdfunding - How you can help

Crowdfunding has been a major part of my life since I started on my music career. Involving everybody is the best part of making an album! Sharing the time and ideas from day one.

The money funded will be spent on the recording/producing/mixing/mastering and duplication for the project. Any extra funds will be used for promotional purposes and publicity. The album will be released in Autumn/Winter 2019. With album launches and Album Launch tour to come with it.

Thank you - Go raibh míle maith agaibh

Thank you so much for reading, for considering and for supporting this project in advance. I know that I am so lucky to be in a position to make this album, and I am so grateful for all of your support in advance. Go raibh míle maith agaibh.

Happy Tuesday - Studio Blog and Pictures

Hi Everybody! 

Happy Tuesday!

We've a morning off today from the studio, and I got to write a little bit about what has been happening! I've set up a new tumblr page (I dunno if that's a trendy new site, or really old one...but it looks cool!). I think it's a cool place to post thoughts, words and media, and it's pretty easy to use!

It means I've a bit of space to post pictures from the studio for you, maybe some videos, and my thoughts about what's happening to me in here.. hooooopefully you'll find it interesting. If it's boring sure, let me know as well haha!

Here's the link to the Tumblr Page : https://aoifescott.tumblr.com/

You can check it at any time to see new posts etc, it means I won't keep spamming your emails with updates! 

For now - Here's a photo of my head the first day recording 

Happiness is : 

Thanks so much everybody,

Aoife Scott 2nd Album - Update - 'Guess Wha"

Well Everybody - Hope you are all well :)

So, We have news!

First off : We made the target last week and I haven't even had a chance to send you an update, a thank you message and how grateful I am to be here. It is amazing - we blew the target by 20%...the total was €13,263 

an un-believable amount! Thank you so so so much! 

...And Guess wha..

We're in the studio!!

The lack of contact from me, has been that we are literally stuck our heads in soundproof booths singing and playing our hearts out every day since the deadline. We even wrote a brand new song today and are recording it this afternoon - talk about creative vibes! 

We're so excited to be here - And we couldn't have made it here without all of our support. 

I recieved the list of fundit rewardee's from the fundit organisation today, so it means I can see who got involved and what rewards were chosen now! And, If it's okay with you guys, I'll send some photos to your email and maybe a sneaky video to show you what's been going on in the studio! To come over the next day or so :)

Go raibh míle míle maith agaibh, 

Beir Bua,

Aoife Scott - Second Album - 1st Week Down

Hello Everybody! 

(Note : You're getting this as an email cause you funded the 2nd album project on Fundit!)

So first off - I just want to say Thank you SO SO SO much for getting involved and purchasing a reward! I'm so delighted! 

I am so excited for you all to be involved in the 2nd album. It is just amazing and I'm so grateful to ye all! 

We're one week down and I can't get over how it took off in the first couple of days... It was nearly 50% funded in 24 hours! Unbelievable! 

Right now, we're at 20 days left and at 70% funded! Which is just incredible. I couldn't have asked for a better start to the album than this. It's very excitin, and also really so amazing to know that so many people are believing this to happen. It's a pretty cool feeling! 

At the moment, I can't see what rewards are bought, or who's bought them... so I can't thank ye individually just yet!

But I will! :) 

We've another 30% to go, and because it's an all or nothing deal...if it doesn't reach the target, then none of it comes my way. But that's fair enough!

Fingers crossed all goes well and we reach the final target very soon! 

Thanks again everybody, and thanks so much for the support!
