This time, I went for a somewhat different pricing policy. I have been reading and hearing a lot about a strategy often referred to as ‘name your price’. The idea is that artists allow their audience to decide how much the work is worth to them. So, we are talking about VALUE for money. If the consumer thinks my music is worth something, and I am worth supporting in creating more music, then they will invest in me and my work over the long haul; while it remains completely possible for him/her to also edit the suggested price to zero and get the EP for free if they so choose.

I decided to create two different editions of the EP: a standard edition (Name Your Price) and a deluxe edition (Fixed Price). Here’s how each is different:

Standard Edition – EP in either High Quality mp3 or HD wav formats 
                                   –  PDF Liner Notes

AND…..
– 24 minute “Making of….” video
– selection of photos taken during tracking sessions.

I am very pleased with the EP. I really actually believe that this represents my best work to date as a songwriter, recording artist, musician and also as a mixing and mastering engineer.

I took a very fresh and different approach to the songs this time around, through all phases, I worked hard to try and make all that I have learned and gained from my influences and make it my own, with my own sound and my own way of doing things.
I think I have made some big leaps forward with this record. The next one will be even BETTER!

I am planning on releasing an EP every year from here on out, and also a full length album every two years or so.

So, dearest Reader, please go and check it out HERE. If you like what you hear, please consider purchasing it. I would really appreciate it a LOT!

Until next time……………

So….it has been a couple of months without a blog post. Sorry about that! Has everyone been well? Good!

What have I been up to the last two months? You ask. Well…..Mostly I have been writing  a bunch of new songs,and then recording and mixing them for a new EP that comes out on May 8th at 8pm (UK time). I like the number 8. Not sure why though.

That has been the main focus of my time. The EP is called Belonging To Tomorrow and features myself plus guest musicians from the UK and around the world. My good friend George Gibson has create some awesome art and graphics work for the EP, for which I owe him way more than just his fee!

Wanna take a wee look?…………..

Awesome!

I have already pre-released a song from the EP for free, which I posted to Soundcloud, to give folks a wee fore-taste of the record……

 

Tomorrow night, I will be mastering the record ready for release on Sunday, and then on Friday and Saturday I will be creating the bonus content for the “Deluxe” version of the EP.

So, this Sunday, May 8th 2016, this blog will be dominated slightly by celebrating the release of Belonging To Tomorrow. Until then……………. Take care, folks!
