Red Cable Sunday
Join me on this journey! my debut single Prelude to the Nocturne featured on Radio 2 (Alan Titchmarsh) and Radio 3 (The Late Junction) and thanks to funders raised thousands of pounds to make a video for new single Relentless with radio play on BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music and RTE. You can see what I have done with my last crowdfund in the above video 🙂
The support of funders has meant I can expand this project and involve collaborators for the album which will feature Prelude to the Nocturne, Warflowers, Relentless and live favourite, Snowdrifts.
There are a range of perks to suit every funder, from instant MP3 downloads, signed cds of the new album, vinyl, comics and props from the relentless video to handwritten lyric sheets and lyric picture books, bespoke videos and personal gigs/piano lessons!
Without the backing of a recording company, unsigned artists need to raise money to pay for recording studio costs. The album needs to sound cinematic and impressive which is why I would like to have string players for some of the tracks. Score sheets, rehearsal time, recording costs, mixing and mastering all add up as costs. And finally, a good PR campaign will mean that all this hard work and support gets the potential of being heard in places I cannot reach on my own.
You can help make that happen 🙂
Making a high quality album or video simply would not be possible without funders. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that this album could not have happened without you and get some cool perks along the way! My debut single was recorded on a laptop but ended up being featured on national radio, tv and newspapers. I cant wait to see where this album ends up!
What people said about Relentless
“Denis Fernando’s music is always worth listening to and on this tune his voice and piano is totally beguiling. The thought-provoking dystopian video too creates a tension with the music. I just hope this gets seen and heard by as wide a public as possible”
Max Reinhardt Presenter on Radio 3’s The Late Junction
“Red Cable Sunday is where the underground meets everything else. Relentless is a poignant short film that is verging portraying on Britain’s modern reality”
Caffy St Luce, TheZineUK
What people said about Prelude to the Nocturne
“Red Cable Sunday brings the ol’ johanna back into fashion, tickling the ivories (and ebonies!) to great effect while performing a self-scored, gershwin inspired yet politically motivated instrumental tune”
Dexter Bentley – Resonance FM
“Two really beautiful, moving piano pieces on this debut single from Red Cable Sunday. Stunning!”
Piccadilly Records, Manchester
My new single Relentless has a highly creative video which was all down to its funders. Its always fantastic to interact with pledgers at shows or via my email newsletter which will keep you updated on progress 🙂
