Day 16-actually HOPE is coming!
Well. Um. I uh. The thing is. Um.
What an earth can I say? This is absolute crazy. Magic seems to happen over night on Sellaband. I went to bed last night about at 85% of target and by 11.30 ish my time this morning it was all over.
I was teaching at the time but guessed something was up when my right thigh started vibrating furiously(oh er) pleasant as this was, I soon realised that it was mobile phone, and later inspection about 1pm showed me that it was lots of messages streaming through of congratulations. I didn't need to see the page to know we had done it, I just couldn't believe that we had. Only 16 days later.
I remember the first time I came onto Sellaband and we had allowed ourselves about a year to raise the $50k needed. We raised it in 50 days. Again when I joined back up for my second project at €4000 I allowed myself an optomistic 6 months. And yet here we are you've done it again.
All of YOU are the dream makers. YOU are the people that make things like this happen. I have my music. I have my message, but I'm just little me. To be a success we all had to pull together and make it happen. Throughout my blogs I hope you notice that I always said 'we've raised the funds, because it was never just me in it-it was all of us.
I'm working really hard on making you the best album I can make. I have THE most wonderful musicians and team behind me. They have the same spirit and motivation as I do, and I wouldn't be doing any of this without their help either.
But for now, thank you.Thank you for being on the road with me-I think we might have to sort out a european tour!
