New album "Rain Dance" - I need your help!
Hello FundIt friends!
Shane here. I hope you're all keeping safe and well in these difficult times. I haven't spent this much time at home in the last four years, and while I'm enjoying the time to practise and to compose, it's difficult knowing that many of my scheduled concerts and festival appearances this year are now postponed or cancelled.
On a much more positive note, my third studio album "Rain Dance" is being officially launched on Tuesday at 9pm! I can't believe it has been two and a half years since 'Marrakech' and the amazingly successful campaign that you all made possible!
I wanted to let you in on a secret that I am not publishing online: the album is available right now on shanehennessy.ie! You can choose either a physical CD option, or a digital download to get the files immediately. I am very excited for you all to hear the music I have been working on, and I'm looking forward to hearing what you all think!
I am very grateful to Culture Ireland for including my album launch livestream concert as part of their #IrelandPerforms series. I will be going live on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, VK, and Instagram on Tuesday at 9pm Irish time (that's 1pm PST, 4pm EST, 10pm CET, 11pm MSK, and 6am AEST the following day).
The Facebook livestream will be at this link, and the YouTube livestream will be at this link.
I would like your help in making the livestream as big a success as possible! On Tuesday, I would greatly appreciate it if you could
1) Share the YouTube and/or Facebook livestream on your own social media channels
2) Leave a comment letting me know where you are listening from, so that it reaches more people!
Then, you can enjoy the free concert!
This is a difficult time for everyone - especially those of us who work in the performing arts and entertainment industry - and so your support in times like this is particularly touching. I am hugely grateful to all the people who are essential workers who are putting their lives at risk so that we can defeat COVID-19.
If you are a frontline worker in the medical field, I would like to give you the gift of my new album as my way of saying "thank you". Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll figure out how to get your copy to you.
No-one is certain about what the future looks like, and it might be a while before we see each other in a concert setting again, but I am determined to work my hardest to keep bringing you music and to keep doing my part to brighten your day. I am working on a lot of new music and some cool new collaborative projects. Stay tuned for a lot of new music this year!
I wish you and yours all the very best, and I hope you'll be able to join me on Tuesday at 9pm Irish Time for the album launch livestream-concert! I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of the new tracks!
All the best,
