Dear Friends, Cousins, Brothers and Sisters, Parents & Godfathers...

Thank you so much for making your way to my Patreon page.

My name is Fraser Anderson. I’m a singer songwriter, born and bred in bonny Scotland, and in the past 18 months I've performed my songs in more countries than ever before.

WE HAVE BIG PLANS FOR THE FUTURE AND WELCOME

YOU

TO BE PART OF IT ALL!


Over the last 15 years, my music has been warmly celebrated by my growing loyal fanbase,  journalists and radio presenters.   

Now we've reached a tipping point that's hugely exciting.  After all the time I've spent writing, recording, gigging, raising three children and living the life that goes hand in hand with all of that,  I'm now playing regularly to audiences who often tell me they feel deeply moved by my music, which fuels the reasons I do this.  

If you don't know my music (listen here) just try to picture it as being the guy who sits quietly on a wooden chair by the fire, staring into the open flames with a glass of whisky in one hand, a smile in the other and a few good souls around him to talk with till the sun comes up.

So here I am, welcoming you to sit with me by the fire while I pour you a whisky……


_________________

ONE YEAR has now passed since my successful Crowd funding campaign to record the last album, 'Under The Cover Of Lightness', and since then, so much has happened.

The album got over 80 reviews from publications across the UK and Europe and got played on a bunch of radio shows. We’ve been on 12 foreign tours, in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France, and all the way to Canada, playing over 40 gigs and performing in front of over 10,000 people.  Along the way, we’ve created a few music videos, recorded a follow up EP to the album in Toronto and made lots of wholehearted beautiful new friends across the world.

ALL OF THIS WE HAVE MANAGED TO FUND OURSELVES.

(somehow).

At times I don’t know how we’ve been able to achieve this much. As a proudly independent artist, myself and my team have been punching way above our weight all year, accomplishing far more than anyone thought our limited resources and support could have achieved - and that’s continuing in to 2017.

We’ve already been invited to perform an official showcase at Folk Alliance in February.  This is a hugely influential music conference in Kansas in the USA. It's a massive opportunity for us, proving the work we've put in so far is making a difference.  

One way or another we have to find the funds to enable us to attend.

As one of the few British acts invited, we simply cannot afford to miss it.  I’ll sing my heart inside out to almost 1000 key people in the North American music industry giving us the biggest opportunity in my career so far.  

Alongside this, we’re booking more tours, getting more help with PR and exposure, plus we have a run of singles lined up to record and release throughout 2017 and we’re working on a super exciting, uber modern new project which could easily become ridiculously exciting - both for myself, and potentially benefit the wide music industry.  We’re keeping that one hushed for now…. All I can say is that something huuuuuge is a brewing ;-)   Moohahaha!  (Evil laugh)

With all of this already achieved and a dream team of hard working talent behind me, this is the closest I’ve ever been to competing head to head with the big girls and boys.

But...

to really do this

AND I MEAN, REALLY DO THIS!


WE NEED ROCKET FUEL.


We need support. True patronage. We need to find the funds for touring my incredible new band and pay for flights, lodging, petrol, filmmakers, animators, and loads more for the next 3 or 4 years.

I know my fanbase: You’re smart, warmhearted, supportive, beautiful people.
We all started learning how to trust each other with the last crowd-funding campaign.
It was a bit like we were going out on a serious date together.

This new adventure is more like us getting married.

I'll even get down on one knee... :-)

As the wonderful Amanda Palmer says: "In these days of negativity, this community based grass roots movement is the bright side of the net: it is how the web can really *save artists* in an art-economy that is floundering. AND it means YOU need to step up and support the artists you love, the political cartoonists you want to see bravely satirizing the system, the painters you want to see reflecting their realities, the musicians you want filling your hearts and your speakers, the journalists you want to see writing about the state of the world."  

And more than this, I want you to be involved. I want you to feel part of this as things grow and move forward.

THIS IS HAPPENING!!!! HERE YOU ARE!!!!


So here’s how it works. My last Crowdfunder was a one-time deal, this is more of an ongoing commitment to me and my music.

By pledging a monthly amount on the side of the page, you’ll get the rewards listed, and by joining us you’ll be propelling me and the band forward, plus you’ll be adding to the flow of love and positive energy we already have.
 You'll be part of the team!  woo hoo!  

Of course, you get to road test this whole thing if you're a little scared (you can pull out before you're charged at the end of any month, so it's totally risk-free).  

I look forward to sharing the beautiful ride with you, and I love and thank you from the core of my bones.
