I am making an album of music. This is my second such album under the moniker 'Ocean Of You' and I'm very excited to share it with you. The last time I released an album I had the pleasure of working with a friend on the recording/production and mastered it myself, keeping costs down. I then used my own money to initially host and promote it online however there was never a physical copy due to budgetary restrictions. I then used the initial sales to fund the global distribution of the record across the various online music retailers/platforms but because of the disjointed nature of the release and lack of funds from the get-go it lacked impact and fell short of the reach I'd envisioned.
This time around I am recording and producing the album myself but I do need some help to get it off the ground so I'm appealing to you to for that help!
Donations made to this page will go towards the mastering, worldwide digital distribution, promotion and eventual production of physical copies (initially CD and possibly more bespoke formats depending on success of this funding campaign). This means that when the album is finished (it's getting there) I'll be able to quickly get it to a point where it's available to everyone who wants it and co-ordinate the release in a more professional and effective way (rather than just sticking it on BandCamp for a couple of months until I save up enough to launch it properly).
Update - Oct 2018
As you can see the campaign has been running for quite a while now (understatement alert). A variety of health issues and other personal factors over the years have hindered my progress with this project however I am still here and still creating. I am closer than ever to bringing you this fantastic album of original music I just need your help now to get me over the line. All donations will automatically receive for free my entire discography to date (including access to any new releases prior to the album being finished).
I thank you in advance for your kind contributions!
