New CBP music writing campaign
For those of you who don't know who I am or what I have done, or indeed what I do now... My name is Justin Greaves, I am an independent musician by trade and I'm currently writing and recording as Crippled Black Phoenix, and also Se Delan.
My past bands have included Iron Monkey, Hard To Swallow, Teeth Of Lions Rule The Divine, The Varukers, Borknagar, Electric Wizard ... and more
I have also written and composed soundtrack music for films and documentaries such as : The Devil's Business, Little Deaths, Future Shock - The Story Of 2000AD... and others..
I am starting this campaign for one simple reason, to continue as a musician and song writer, producer and overall director of music.
The money raised will go directly to the costs of producing demos, writing songs, recording music, creating artistic direction and basically supporting myself while I do the above. The aim is to carry on as an artist and carry on creating under my own name as well as my bands Se Delan and Crippled Black Phoenix
This money is going to directly effect the next year of making music, the new CBP album, another Se Delan album and tour, more song writing for soundtracks, and later in the year, a CBP tour with special extra releases and extra songs. This is the time frame I have given myself for this one last try at being a songwriter and music creator.
YOUR PART IS APPRECIATED!
If you can help no matter how small, you will be making the biggest difference to me. After 12 years of keeping myself going, making and creating CBP (and now Se Delan and soundtracks), I hope, this continues.
In a way to say thanks for the support, in addition to helping see through the next 12 months of creating music, everyone who donates will recieve a one-off album of new songs. If I achieve the target, this album can be completed. And if I don't reach the goal, everyone who contributes will still get a download of new song and other cool unreleased stuff!
Thanks for reading. Thanks for your support!
I just got through the first part of recording the new CBP album which has gone really well... I have spent the last couple of months writing and preparing for this, which is basically full time work for zero pay... but the album is going ahead with the help of those who donated.
I have had great news, an offer of work, one being "work from home" which is perfect, and another job driving, again perfect. ... The trouble is 1. My laptop died and I have no replacement, and 2. My car is currently off the road with a blown gasket... You see my problem?
So, forgive my constant reposting, but if I can raise more through my campaign and get closer to my goal, I can get a new laptop and get my car fixed in order to work! :) ... it's about being able to grab opportunities when they appear.
In the meantime, I am heading off again to finish the CBP album, another 2-3 weeks working full time unpaid (as the album budget advance from our label all goes directly on the recording costs)... but I can't and won't give up on this... the new CBP tunes are sounding massive :)
Thanks for reading, thanks for the support. Hugs to the haters.
