Help us record our debut studio album!


Dear lovers, strangers, friends, fans and family,

We need your help to finish our first full length studio album, “Somewhere Under The Rainbow”.

Click here to donate now, or keep reading below for the full story!

In September we are heading all the way to the U.S. of A, to Seattle to work with our amazing friend, producer and master-er, Blake Bickel, and a host of incredible guest musicians.

“Somewhere Under the Rainbow”, will be a journey album – traversing 11-14 songs of love, loss, rebirth and joy. Some of them you have heard before – many of them will be brand new to your ears! While we can’t release the EXACT track listing, we can tell you that one of the songs on the album has been co-written with award winning writer, Neil Gaiman.

We have been planning, writing, singing and preparing for this album for two and a half years. We are SO excited about it, and SO close to making it a reality… But we need your help to raise the final $10,000, to book the studio, purchase necessary equipment, the printing, the pressing, and to pay Blake & the musicians.

As we are new to crowdsourcing we have set our target to half of what we actually require to make the album – so if we are lucky enough to make $5000 – the fundraising won’t cease there!!!

We have a fantastic array of rewards (check em out below!) that we are incredibly excited about too – from digital downloads of our music, to a tour scrapbook, to the chance to make a cameo appearance in a film clip from the album!! Whatever you are able to donate to this project will be a HUGE help, and essential in bringing this album to you.

Please help spread the word far and wide – Facebook it, tweet it, text around, send a chain-letter – we deeply appreciate it.
