WE ACHIEVED THE 4.000 EUROS FOR THE RECORDING AND MIXING OF THE RECORD! THANKS EVERYONE!
WERE STILL RUNNING TO FUND THE MASTERING AND COPYING OF THE CD. 1.800 EUROS AND 15 DAYS TO GO. WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP!
WE DECIDED THAT THE TITLE IN THE RECORD WILL INCLUDE THE NUMBER OF PATRONS INVOLVED IN THE FUNDING. IT´S THE FIRST STEP OF OUR GRATITUDE.
¡THANKS, DEAR PATRONS!
I was 8 when my mum held my hand and took me to my first guitar lesson.
In my left hand I had a huge plastic bag with my dad´s broken spanish guitar. I wanted to be Elvis.
Since that day that I perfectly remember -must be because of the happiness in me- more that 20 years are gone now. Now that I´m 30 and I went through a lot of bands, three music schools, hundreds of rehearsal spaces, lots of gigs, the best and the worst jobs...it´s time to present something original, authentic and mine.
Time to give back what music has given me and thank all the people who helped me knowing more about it and enjoying it.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
I will spend the week of July the 23rd recording 10 originals with superb musicians I found in my time in Pamplona, Madrid and Amsterdam.
Some songs are new and some others have 5 years, but they all represent my way of understanding music.
They represent the music I like, indeed.
From Ray Charles to John Mayer. From Otis Redding, Shuggie Otis, Amos Lee, country&western, soul, blues and every music that comes from the heart.
This are the musicians chosen to make it real:
Joan Comaposada: bass guitar
Philippe Lemm: drums
Ion Celestino: trumpet
Alberto Arteta: tenor sax and flute
Gabri Casanova: hammond organ
Aki Spadaro: piano
We found a great studio to work in: Musigrama, in Madrid. A place where they love and dedicate body and soul to record nice music in a way it can compete in radios and in the international scene.
Their equipment includes some nice oldies like the well know by the experts Neve Vintage mixer. It´s the place where we can get that analog sound that our music need.
Musigrama has been the office for such musicians as Camarón, Niña Pastori, Sabina, Paco de Lucía, Stevie Wonder, among many others.
WHAT´S THE MONEY FOR?
The first 4.000 euros will cover the recording and mixing of the 10 tracks at Musigrama Studios, Madrid.
The following 1.800 euros will pay the mastering process (1.000) and the copies (800).
WHAT DO WE OFFER?
As a gratitude for your help you will receive a reward, according to the amount given.
It can be the record (10eu), a signed copy and a t-shirt (25) etc.
WHY DO WE DO IT?
The goal of this record is not only to capture 10 songs in a cd. We want to aim 2013 music festivals and promote a new career in music for this band.
Our target are Spain and Middle Europe pop, blues and soul scenes.
Don´t hesitate to ask about anythink we left behind. We´re glad to word for and with you to make this record someting worth listening to and buying. Thanks for making it happend with us. Welcome on board!
