One year ago today, I began recording what would become my second album. I remember feeling terrified, awkward and stranded - equipped with only my guitar and a clutch of songs, wondering how I could turn this all around and into something I could be proud of.
A year later, "Let Out The Dark" is complete. And I love it. I think it represents me well and I dare to say I'm proud.
Now, it's a matter of keeping on pushing towards my crowdfunding target - necessary to be able to press up more than one copy! - then embarking on the countdown to release - more than likely, this will be January 2017. This will give me time to promote it properly, giving it the best possible chance of being heard.
It's a risk, and very scary to put yourself out there. I can only wait and see how it's received. But, to all of you have so kindly and generously supported me so far through Pledgemusic, thank you with all my heart and I hope you will be glad to hear the record when you get your downloads next month, and your advance copies once they are pressed up. And maybe you can tell people about it too...
Til next time,
Love, A x
