Welcome to the FundIt page for my debut album Cherry Blossom Fall!
My friends and I have completed recording and are moving on to the final stages of production. We are looking for any fans/music enthusiasts/patrons of the arts out there to help complete the project and get it out into the world.
Recording took place in O Emperor's Big Skin HQ, Cork and Basement Takes Studios, Dublin with a fantastic group of musicians from around Ireland.
There are nine tracks in total; we went mad and got strings, horns, pedal steel and a whole bunch of other aural delights.
I am delighted with how the recordings have turned out and I'm proud of the work put in by everyone involved; from the musicians (too numerous to mention here) up to and including the artist Cassie Kirby who has done a wonderful cover design for the album.
You can use this website simply as an opportunity to pre-order the album but there are also options to contribute more and we have devised some prizes and incentives for doing so. €3000 will go a long way towards covering the cost of production which includes hiring musicians, mixing, mastering, cover artwork, printing etc. but obviously the more the merrier! Any additional funds will be put towards promoting the album and getting it out to as wide an audience as possible. If, for instance, 300 people pre-ordered the album we will have more than reached our target!
My promise to you is that we will honor the faith you have shown in us with your financial contribution by making the best work we can now and (all going well) long into the future.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy the videos and snippets that we've posted here!
