Hi everyone and hope you're having a great start to October so far! Exciting times and huge news today as I launch a brand new single from Better Than The Book & Jabun: "1314"!
On August 22nd 2021, the night of our 100th full moon together, I proposed to Eva with this song, a mixture of my 2 musical personalities with influences from her favourite musicians too, and she said YES! WOOOOOT! A huge thanks goes out to Eva for being my everything buddy and now fiance, all her support during the ups and downs throughout the years, and for letting me share this track with you all. It was made for her ears but I hope you enjoy it too!
Thank you also to everyone else who's been a part of my musical journey and our relationship all these years so far too: all our family and friends, everyone who's played the music and spread the word, and my closest regular supporters on Patreon with special mention to the top tier contributors Michael White and Nathan Puray! We couldn't have got this far without all your support and I'm super excited to see (and hear) what comes next! My love to you all and thanks so much!
1314 is available now on Bandcamp and should be out on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc... imminently if not already:
And you can also listen to the song on YouTube, SoundCloud and Newgrounds!
But what does "1314" mean and what's the deal with the artwork?! If you want to know the full story behind the song then you'll have to become a supporter on Patreon, and with such a big release, there's a tonne of rewards out in celebration too! All patrons now have music downloads for 1314 and the full-resolution artwork, and for the $10 patrons I'm also sharing with you another ambient LIVE Jabun jam, this time from my 2021 808 Day celebrations! On top of this there'll be the usual monthly project/studio updates in which I'll be sharing with you some pictures and sounds from my newly completed homemade / recycled spring reverb unit too! If that sounds good to you then become a patron for as little as $1 and remember you'll be receiving the entire back catalogue of rewards for your tier too as soon as you sign up including the full Better Than The Book and Jabun discographies and MUCH more.

That's it for this post! It's not often I do public Patreon posts any more so the next one will be whenever the next big update or new release is ready. Until whenever that may be, I hope you enjoy the new music, and thank you for supporting my projects here on Patreon! Take care, all the best, and happy listening!
