Texas home-boy and all-round good guy Ryan Hamilton has just got home from a run of intimate dates in the UK to announce that he’s already well on the way to recording album number two and has launched a Pledge campaign to fund it. Given that Hell of a Day was one of the best albums we heard in 2015 (and it’s still on constant rotation here are Moshville Towers) to say that this is great news is an understatement.
As ever with Pledge campaigns, there’s a lot more than just a download of the album on offer. From handwritten lyrics to test vinyl pressings to stage backdrops (oops – that one’s been sold!)… oh, or a day in a Scottish castle with Ryan as he records the album? That’s got to be worth a few (hundred) dollars!
The Pledge has two months to run and – after being online for a couple of hours – is almost at 20% funded already. Don’t forget that even if you go for the cheapest option (digital download) you get access to exclusive content, early previews of tracks and anything else that Ryan feels like uploading.
Oh, and 2% of the goal – when funded – will go to the SPCA of Texas.
All we need now is a release date!
I'M RECORDING A NEW ALBUM!!! I've joined forces with the amazing folks at PledgeMusic to make it happen.
Check it out…
You can pledge to pre-order my new album, receive lots of cool exclusives, & get behind the scenes access to the entire process! If you were part of last year’s PledgeMusic campaign (my first album, Hell of a Day, has been out for over a year. How crazy is THAT?!) … you know just how fun, unique and exciting this experience can be!
Here's how it works: EVERYONE who pledges/preorders gets an AccessPass. This includes a digital download of the album before it is available anywhere else. PLUS, access to a pledger-only section of the site where you will see updates on the recording process, behind-the-scenes videos, exclusive photos etc…. Even sneak peeks at the new tracks before they’re released!
After the success of last year’s FAN FUNDED album, I’ve learned just how important the support of “pledgers” can be. I hope you’ll join me once again on this crazy adventure. I’ve written SO MANY new songs over the past year, and I seriously can’t wait to get into the studio to record my second solo album! I think this album is going to be something really special.
No record label, no manager…. just me and an awesome team of wonderful people making things happen these days. I know I can count on all of you amazing folks who continue to believe in me. Now go check out all of the cool exclusives, help me spread the word, and let’s make an album… TOGETHER! Here's FB friendly, so the don't block my post) the link! ;-) pledgemusic(dot)com/projects/ryanhamiltonnewalbum
Hugs and high fives from Texas! Thank you for your support! Let's do this! -Ryan
