When buying a bands CD’s down the pub I often hear people say they’re chuffed for supporting Independent music. I totally understand what they mean and it’s awesome that they’ve just got themselves a new album to listen to but.. This sometimes goes a step too far.

Only a few are guilty of this but sometimes it feels like people ‘support independent’ to the point of thinking of it like charity. If people buy my music purely to make it so I can eat food, then great!! But the idea was, that I would make something people will want to listen to and those people might buy it. A bit like with the famous bands off the telly.

I really really love that people buy my music. I love writing out addresses and posting out CD’s and I want them to feel good that 99% of that money goes to the artist and mostly straight back into making more music. But remember It really is the same as the stuff on the radio.

Having said that I want to say a massive thanks to everyone who has bought my new album so far I really appreciate it! it means I can keep making music. And hopefully I’ll keep picking up new listeners along the way.

You can grab my new album at the shop link at the top of the page. I’m doing a post office run first thing tomorrow morning so it’ll be with you nice and snappy!!
