WHISPERS 2 IS OUT NOW !!!!!!!!!! and available worldwide . for a digital copy go here, for a physical copy of the cd gohere, (we should have vinyl copies available in two/three weeks too …. more news on that shortly .)
i am releasing this album independently on my own label (black crow records) and there are no other record labels involved in the marketing and distribution . the upside of this is that it enables us to give as much money to UNICEF as possible . the downside is that at the moment all physical copies have to be shipped from the uk which unfortunately means there is a postage and packaging cost involved . sorry to those of you who have to pay a little more but be assured that there is good reason for it
the video below is a vimeo file so can now be watched in germany . it is in my opinion some of my friend bryan dos reis’s best work (and that is saying something !) its a short film which includes the four video’s that we have already released plus the fifth and final one and links them all together with more footage from my european tour and some music from some of my fellow busking buddies that we met along the way . I’m so lucky to have worked with bryan on this and i really hope you enjoy it .
as i mentioned earlier , there is absolutely no money being spent on marketing . none of these songs are ever likely to get on the radio and chances are it won’t get picked up by the press in a big way . this entire project is based on word of mouth so please , if you can , share the video’s , the music and the message with as many people as possible . even if you can’t afford to buy a copy of the album – the sharing of it is just as vital .
i’m really proud of this record – both musically and also the cause that its contributing to . i want to thank all of you for getting behind it in such an amazing way and i really do hope that you enjoy listening to it . i’m so so lucky to have such generous and genuine people supporting me and what i do .
a special thanks to dan medland , tim clark , david enthoven , rebekah tayler , hannah crofts and every one at i.e. music for believing in this project and for working so hard to make it a reality . also a huge thanks to chris valejo for engineering and co producing the record with me . to sarah lanarch for her gorgeous art work and to bryan dos reis for this amazing short film and video work .
thank you again .
hello passengers , whispers two comes out in less than a week !!!
here is the fourth video from the album – its called “catch in the dark” and its a song that i wrote a few years ago whilst on tour in holland . You can see it here
we thought it would be fun to make a video whilst walking around to show off some of the stunning places i played gigs in and also to see what kind of reaction we’d get from people around us. ( check out the kids in berlin ….. cheeky little rascals !! ) we had so much fun making it and watching it back now makes me realise just how lucky i am to visit such beautiful towns !!!
by the way – we’ve already raised over £30,000 for UNICEF UK on pre sales alone its amazing what a group of kind hearted and like minded people can achieve . thank you all so so much for backing this project .
if you haven’t got yours yet you can pre order both physical and digital copies here.
as always , every like , comment and share is greatly appreciated .
so much love .
