I Met A Man
Awake Crowdfund Campaign
Thanks to your generous pledges and donations we have sailed past our target and reached 105% of our goal. We have all raised over £5300 via email and on social media - thank you. You worked so hard to help us achieve this by spreading the word and staying onboard. We are humbled by your support. However much you have contributed we want you to know we are incredibly grateful – we know how many pressures we all face on our finances – making a commitment to new music is no small feat. So thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
And now we will beaver away finishing AWAKE and getting all your rewards ready! We will have the bulk of these done by the beginning of April, so you will have your albums 6 weeks before it is officially released. For those of you who ordered vinyl this will come a little later, as we are making sure this is of the standard and quality you have come to expect from us, which means using the only cutting engineer in the UK qualified for such expertise. For those of you who ordered T-shirts we will be in touch to ask you about sizes too. The official album release date is May 11th. We will send you all the other updates as they come in…
Until then, know that we have started March with a spring in our step, in spite of the snow, and we hope you carry a little inner flame knowing you have been part of making a dream possible for two folkies.
May the road rise with you all.

Ships late March 2018
AWAKE has several original songs, some traditional songs and covers that encapsulate the journey of waking to your true calling. We have done much of the tracking for AWAKE already, but an album of this quality takes a lot of money. We are here to ask for your support to bring this new album to the world, though its production, pressing and promotion and we have all kinds of stuff to thank you for your support. So you can pre-order it here, get posters of the art and T-shirts or postcards, and if you simply want to donate, you can do that too! And when you do, spread the word! Whichever you choose, thank you for supporting our music and for championing us… May the road rise with you!
