You may have noticed that I’m releasing a lot of music recently, well, there is a reason. Neigh, it is not blind marketing, but strategic marketing. It all ties in with the WAVES launch, and here’s how.
WAVES will be an extremely customisable album; You’ll have the option of choosing the artwork on the CD, as well as the track listings! Let alone that, each album comes with a unique, hand written pun.
Now, I couldn’t do this if you didn’t know the tracks could I? So, every week running up to the launch of WAVES, I’ll be releasing a brand new, or re-produced track!
So, here’s how it’s all going to work:
Step one – Choose your track listing:
I’ve always been a big fan of giving the customer exactly what they want, even if it means I have to go the extra mile, so with WAVES, I am offering people the opportunity to hand pick their very own track listing for the album! With a selection of 30 original pieces (all listed in the contact form at the bottom of this post).
Of course, being me, the selection consists of blues, jazz, ska, folk, rap, orchestral electronic, maths and of course experimentalism, so you have plenty to choose from!
All of the tracks will be released as singles on my Bandcamp page over the coming weeks, so if you’re unsure what songs you want then you can have browsing listen.
Step two – Choose your artwork:
I’m sure by now you’ve seen my array of CD designs. Sadly, hand drawing hundreds of CDs is very energy and time consuming, and I doubt I’d be able to make it viable hand drawing each one, so instead I’ll be replicating a selection of deigns for you to choose from. Batch by batch, I’ll be progressing through the 20 odd designs. The first batch include Chameleon, Elephants and Vulture. With some special exceptions.
Step three – Collect your album:
Sadly, I can’t currently afford to invest in proper payment options or forms for you to complete & pay online right now, so the first stockpile will ONLY be available at the album launch at The Soundhouse on 28th December (get it in your diaries!). The albums will cost £12 each, cash only (or Paypal options if you contact me before 30th November. Leave a comment in your submission if preferred).
If you want a copy of WAVES, simply use the contact form attached to at the bottom of this post, list your 10 tracks, name your preferred album artwork, and confirm your attendance to the launch party at The Soundhous, Leicester on 28th December, 2017. Again, feel free to contact me if you wish to pay in advance via Paypal
I would like to remind you this is an exclusive opportunity, as time goes on I will simply release a 10-track album on random artworks, so will you NOT have the customisable option forever!
All submissions must be in by 8th December.
