Inni-K - Second Album

By Inni-K

description

About

I’m very excited to be at the stage where I'm ready to make my second album. Since the release of my debut album in 2015, which was made possible by the generosity of all who supported my Fund it campaign for it; I've been lucky enough to perform all around Ireland, Europe & further afield & am delighted at the growing opportunities to play my music. 

Since then, I’ve been working steadily on songs for my second album, which is due for release March 2019. They are new & different & I can't wait to bring them out into the world. Between now and Friday 7 December I’ll be raising the funds needed to make this happen. 

The Team

I've gathered a wonderful team to help me make this album to the quality & standard I envisage. My main musical collaborator is friend, drummer & percussionist Brian Walsh; whose been playing & touring with me since 2013. We'll be recording in December with engineer & producer Alex Borwick in Dublin & inviting some great guest musicians to join us.  

Why I am Crowdfunding

I am crowdfunding for this project to make up the significant upfront funds needed to accomplish all the costs involved. I really like the direct link crowdfunding fosters between the artist & the audience, who in the end listen & hopefully enjoy the music they have played a role in making happen. The rewards on offer - singing workshops, tickets to the album launch along with the album itself of course - I believe will be enjoyable for both my audience & myself. Some rewards may even serve as nice experiential gift options at this time of year.

Your Contribution

If this Fund it project is successful, all the money received will go directly towards the following: studio rental, engineer's fee, guest musician's fees, mixing, mastering, CD duplication & artwork. 

Buíochas / Thanks

Thank you sincerely for reading & supporting my project. I am excited & totally committed to making this album to the best of my ability. It simply couldn't happen without your support & generosity & for that I am extrememly grateful.

Update #3 - On the other side!

Dear supporters, 

Happy New Year!

Well, it's been pretty busy since I last updated here leading up to the exciting finishing line of my fundit campaign for the new album!! New Year, new album, new things on the way...

I'm really delighted to announce my second album which now has a name.....drumroll...THE HARE & THE LINE is set for release 1 March 2019, with the first single coming out 1 Feb!! I can't wait to share these songs especially with you wonderful humans who helped me make this happen.

Hotpress link to album announcement

I'm currently getting the artwork finished, Its looking good, and the tracks will be mixed and mastered in the coming week. It's all extremely exciting right now, as the culmination of months (you could say years) of work comes together. Please see below for the live dates coming up - be fantastic to see you along the way at a gig & share the songs live with you!! http://www.inni-k.com/tourdates/ and please feel free to share the dates with friends & family in far away places we'll be visiting : )

There was much jubilation, relief and joy after we got over the line on Friday 7 Dec, and we didn't loose any time getting straight into recording the following Monday!! in a farmhouse in Wicklow before Christmas, followed by stints in Hellfire Studios in the Dublin mountains & Rathfarnham and various fantastic musicians houses around Dublin. 

This is an album I am really proud of. It's current, more raw perhaps than before. It was also less of an alone venture than ever before with a fantastic team around me in drummer (& pianist now by the way!!), friend & collaborator Brian Walsh; engineer, superb human & co-producer Alex Borwick; along with great musicians we had join us - bassist Caimin Gilmore; guitarist Dónal Gunne; bassist Cormac OBrien, Patrick O Laoghaire (I have a Tribe) on backing vocals; Seán Mac Erlaine on clarinet & saxaphone -  sax on one of my songs - I know!! It is a bit different lads!! Just to give you the heads up! It feels like me, now, and I'm very glad to have present-tense material to share with you & play live.

Update #2 :: 3 days to go!!!

Oh my dear friends & supporters!!!

Many thanks to the 125 funders so far...your support is extremely heartening!

Just 3 DAYS left now till the deadline THIS FRIDAY 11am (all or nothing deadline!) We're very nearly 70% of the way there, fingernails are more or less intact and the FINAL PUSH is ON to hopefully get us over the line in time!

If you know anyone who may enjoy a ticket to a singing workshop in January as a Christmas gift (sean-nós singing or harmony singing) 19 & 20 Jan, Dublin; or, Tickets to the album launch in April in Whelans, please feel free to pass on the link to my fundit page.

I hope we have good news this Friday morning 11am!!

Thanks you all so much, 

Inni-K x

 

Update #1

Hello dear supporters, 

I hope your Monday is off to a good start. Tús maith leath na hoibre. 

A wee update here...we're half way through the campaign already and just passed 33% of my target! I'm so very grateful for all the support I've received so far. Thanks to each and everyone of you who have gotten onboard. 

I need to reach 66% by THIS FRIDAY 30 Nov to be on target to reach my goal of €10,000 by 11 am 7 Dec, and am trying to get the word out as much as possible. It's a huge task & I'd so much appreciate any help with funding or spreading the word. 

The Christmas gift ideas of tickets to singing workshops: sean-nós singing and harmony singing workshops, are proving popular as are tickets to the album launch in April. 

If I don't reach my target I don't get any of it, so it is all a bit nerve-wrecking but so exciting as well to think of recording these songs & to think of all the people who are helping me make it happen. 

Meanwhile the songs are really coming on. We go into 4 pre-production days next week to finish arranging the songs, getting ready to hopefully record in December!! Really can't wait to share them with you. We tried out a couple for the first time at the Cobblestone gig last Friday, and got some great feedback:

Thanks once again to everyone who has funded already. Onwards to 66% by THIS FRIDAY!!

Le buíochas, 

Inni-K
