Sam Bradley: England to Canada and the Making of an Album

 


Well...in case you missed it, Sam blogged yesterday on his website about what he's been up to this year! You can find the entire post at SamBradley.com. But, we here at A Soulful Sound wanted to kind of focus on one particular section of the post...his CD and how he intends to fund it. 


"While she is away I will be turning the house into a studio. I have been here for a few months now and have been writing new songs (not all of them quite finished) and will attempt to make my DEBUT ALBUM! I have tried to make albums in the past but due to complications have reduced them to EP’s so I am changing my outlook and this project will have a more DIY approach. I am very excited to see and hear what happens. 
I am going to try and come up with a few unique ways over the course of the next couple of months to try and raise a bit of money to get this project completed. My first idea is to eBay off my writing guitar so please keep an eye on twitter for when that happens!"


So, Sam will be a very busy person in the coming months! That's so exciting! We were jumping for joy yesterday with this news!






And...UNIQUE WAYS TO RAISE MONEY??? Excuse us while we go in search for all the change in our couch cushions so we can be ready to give it all over to Mr. Bradley. And....if anyone wants to join together to go in on bidding for Sam's guitar we can share custody of it....that's possible right? Well...you know what they say 'dream big or go home.' 

So, while Sam is busy recording and doing the fun things musicians do...we will be planning contests for those that donate to Sam's CD! So, on top of whatever cool things we know Sam will come up with..you will also be entered to win something from us! 

But, until Sam makes those announcements and we're brainstorming some awesome prizes to those that donate...save your money and let's make this CD (and the tour that will hopefully follow) a possibility! 


We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate each of you and all you do for our site and Sam.

Poor guy...we all hope he will be feeling better soon!


While looking for a song for our Music Monday Feature, we found this gem, Sugar Mama, written by drummer and member of Sam's backing band, "The Men", circa 1999, Mark Kerrey.
