Power to the people.
Dear fantastic funders,
here is a free download of a tune by the artist David Cleary made from a phone message I left on his answering machine 6 years ago.:http://soundcloud.com/deasy/cloudless-night-featuring-nina
Next week, I will be given your email addresses and funding details so I can contact you all about your rewards.
Thanks from the very bottom of my heart fro believing in this project and helping me to get there!We made it. It has been en emotional roller coaster and feels so empowering to be making a record this way and to stop the waiting. Your kindness, good-will and sheer determination(I saw all your FB posts and Twitters) for me to get there has been very moving.
So, I will spend the next few weeks preparing the preliminary rewards such as the ancient 4 track Ep, the cookery programmes etc. ie. the ones that can be given before the album is made..
..then to record part 1 from 21st until 31st of August, then in late Sept to record the choir, to mix, master, do the art work, press and duplicate and have it for mid to late NOVEMBER>
Hurray. Power to the People!
We did it!
this is brilliant.
Thank you everyone of you pushing me on to do this and believe. You have been unbelievable!
Thank You to fundit for trusting me enough to take on a wee one with a small social network and for being on 24 call to all my little questions for 50 days!
Now I am off to start preparing the other rewards before we actually start making the album.
Thank you. Nina
Run Forrest Run
I am all feathers. I return to bed and wake up to a whopping 73%..oh my..this is so exciting. I am so moved by all the positive sharing and encouragement. I really believe now it can be done. 8 days left. It's All or Nothing..Tick Tock.
The new album Goldmine should be quite acoustic with me being accompanied by an amazingly brilliant drummer (Sean Carpio)and very lovely piano player(Fabien Leseure) and a spaced out atmosphere maker guitarist(Reuben Meagher) playing mellow dreamy sound-tracky type songs of emotion and pure intention(be that dark or loving) and a full choir of young people with a lot of high voices...and and..
Cuckoo of thanks
This Goldmine is growing along in waves of calm and swells..thanks to all of you who have funded..18 days to go..and 40% there..it can be done..here is a new video by Dutch video maker Maarten J. Boer for my new demo Cuckoo http://www.vimeo.com/25559631

Thank you early birds
Thanks all you lovely early birds for digging in my Goldmine and starting the buzz.
This is going to be work to achieve the full amount but with your help, it can be possible.
Thanks, Thanks, Thanks.
As you know, the rewards don't happen until the end of the 48 days and the success but I will be sending you updates of secret song performances during the time to all pledgers.
At the moment, I am trying to get the word out and keep this Goldmine fund growing. Stand up and bring it to the world I say.
