Ronan Gallagher Time Waits For No One

By The Ronan Gallagher Band

description

In 2019 with the support of many generous Fund it funders like you, I released my debut album 'Always Broke Never Broken'. With two tracks hitting the No. 1 spot on four major internet radio stations and getting airplay on our local, national and international airwaves and some memorable gigs too, it's been a hell of a ride. Now, a year on, and with your generous support I want to record my second album 'Time Waits For No One' which, due to a recent illness, is aptly titled and the spur for recording it. In these difficult times music has come to the forefront of many people's lives and is helping many of them get through the current lockdown so it seemed reasonable to try and add to that mix with a whole new album. It will be produced by Marc Geagan and will contain thirteen new songs including the title song from which the following lyric is taken.
'Life is out there waiting
Live it while you can
No point in hesitating
If you understand
This is no rehearsal
Your future's in your hands
Time waits for no one...

If successful the money will be spent on recording, mixing, mastering, design. production, duplication and release of CDs. It will also go towards paying the fees of the musicians who play on the album as well as on marketing and promotion of the album.

Having released my debut album to great success last year I have learned a lot about the process of recording and producing an album. I will be once again using some of the finest musicians in the country to bring their talent and creativity to the songs. Time Waits For No One will be recorded and produced in Stracomer Studio in Bundoran by Marc Geagan who did an excellent job on my first album.

Video: I Won't Do That from my debut album Always Broke Never Broken made possible last year by the generous support of funders like you.

 

  


With my first album 'Always Broke Never Broken' I learned that one of the key strategies needed to push an album is promotion to local, national, and international internet radio stations and Spotify playlists which we will be doing in conjunction with a high profile social media campaign.


In today's music business crowdfunding has become a necessary way for independent artists like myself to raise funds to produce our music. Being a two way street, crowdfunding helps the artist get their music out and you, the funder, get to own some great music and receive many other rewards for your pledges and support. The funding and success of my last album and this album would not be possible without your generous support.

                                                                                    

I would like to thank you for reading about my project and I hope you have been convinced enough about its merit to pledge to fund it and join, or even rejoin me as I continue on my musical journey.

Many thanks indeed.

CD's Ready for posting

It's been a long year with pandemics, lockdowns, and bleak news, but things are looking brighter and the world is beginning to slowly open up again it seems. The world may have stopped but the music never did and with your help I'm delighted finally to be releasing 'Liberty' the first single from my upcoming album 'Time Waits For No One' this evening at 7pm but as a funder you can see it here first. The CDs are ready too and your albums and download links plus any other rewards due will be coming your way in the next few days                        </div>

At Long Last

It's been eight months since I put up my first Fundit Campaign post to raise funds to make my second album 'Time Waits For No One' and, just like with my first album 'Always Broke Never Broken' you rallied to the cause and in a few short weeks we reached our target. In retrospect that was the easy part. With Covid restrictions and lockdowns this album took a lot longer to make and was not without its logistical problems especially when you consider that there are eighteen musicians playing on it. But despite the frustrations and obstacles and with the talent, patience, and ingenuity of producer Marc Geagan and all our musicians we got it made safely and I'm delighted to let you know that the CD goes to press in the next couple of weeks and I will be announcing a release date very soon. Thank you all for your patience and your support and I hope the album lives up to your expectations. It's certainly got myself and my producer Marc Geagan excited. You are also the first people outside of ourselves to see the album cover which I designed. It's a composite of two photographs, one of my own dog taken by me, and one of the Milky Way over Sligo taken by Eddie Lee.

I'll be interviewed on The Mickey Duffey Show on www.finnvalleyfm.com next Sat 6th March at 6.30 and he will be playing a sneak preview of a couple of tracks from the album if you care to tune in. Till then thank you all again and more news to follow soon.

Many thanks

Ronan
