This album was funded via Kickstarter by a huge variety of lovely people, all of who believed in me to make something that was worth their time and money. Here’s just a few of them:
Sian Masson, Gwilym Stone, Mary de Ville, Laura Whitehouse, Marilyn Campbell, Martin Sandford, Katya Bates, James Gibb, Mark Stevenson. Poppy Folk Club, Jamie Dooley, Phil D'Eath, Graham Collins, Mike McCabe, Katey Logan, Andy McCabe, Kirsty McCabe, Andrew, Shelley Jane Thomas, Martin Clarke, Gemma Davis, Andrew Lane, Katy Spicer, Simon Aldridge, Steve Smither, Huw Lynd-Evans, Just So Festival, Anthony Redden, Andy Gibb, Andy Webster Helen Carr, Gary Smith, Mike Kirby, Sarah James, Ian Hunter
Special thanks must also go to Laura for putting up with me and nagging me into action, Rich Collins for all the time, effort, and hard work he put into the record, Pippa Curnick for making this album look better than I could have ever hoped for, Julian at Hairpin Records, the folks at Just So Festival for their endless support, Neil Pearson at EFDSS for his good advice and willingness to listen to my silly ideas, Paul James for encouraging me to think big, Bev and Ray Langton, all the lovely musical friends who contributed their talents, and my lovely family which very much includes my dog Ella, she of curly tail and wet nose and the inspiration for at least a third of this album.
Finally I want thank YOU.
If you’re reading this then it means that you’ve chosen to listen to my music.
I wanted to record an album that would make people of all ages smile, sing along, and (if no one’s watching) dance around the living room like a maniac. I really hope that I have succeeded, even a little.
