I play the music that lives within me... the Blues, and all its branches... my music takes listeners on a journey, from the plantations of Mississippi ca. 1900 to the land we live in today... I'm not only trying to preserve the music, but to also help it grow, and expand the vocabulary that is the blues... and having a great time along the way!!!
Where The Support Will Go
The support you give me will help to defray the recording and production costs of the new music I have written, both as a solo artist and with my regular band (who appeared on the last album I released, Mulligan Stew). While I certainly can (and plan to) record as much of this music myself in my home studio, there are certain areas that are beyond my expertise and equipment level (mastering, for one-drums are another!!!). This is where most of your support will go-to help make the next record as good as we can possibly make it, with no compromises or excuses... for a reference point, follow this link to hear the Mulligan Stew CD, which was done completely at home (except for drums and mastering) www.reverbnation.com/francrobert
How Often Will You Hear New Music?
I'm planning on releasing the first tune about October 1st, 2013 to patrons only with 2-3 tunes per month following until the CD is released (shooting for a Spring 2014 release date). There is a strong possibility of you, the patron, getting some songs that will not wind up on the CD-I have 10 songs already demo'd (to at least a listenable point!) and there's another 3 songs waiting for the demo treatment... and I haven't stopped writing, either!!!
So, are you with me??? Thanks for your support!!
