Jane Willow Debut Album Pre-Orders

By Jane Willow

About Me
I’m Jane Willow and I’m a Dublin-based Dutch folk musician. I moved to Ireland in 2011. I was fascinated with Irish music and the vibrant busking and open mic scene. In 2017 I decided to go for it and I released my first single ‘On My Mind’. In the past 3 years I’ve played in well known Irish music venues like Vicar Street, The Button Factory and Whelan’s. I’ve done shows in Ireland, The Netherlands and Germany. And I’ve been the support act for Andy Irvine, Glen Hansard, Paddy Casey, The Unthanks, David Kitt, Aoife Scott and Kíla. My songs have received radioplay on RTE Radio 1, BBC Radio Ulster and Radio Nova. Also, in these last 3 years I’ve released 1 EP and 5 singles. It’s been an incredible journey!

The Album
Over the past few years I’ve also been working on my debut album. On this album I’ll have my amazing band with the addition of a string quartet. Anthony Gibney will be on sound, mixing and co-production and Joe Csibi (head of the RTE Concert Orchestra) has done the string arrangements. And my band includes Scott Flanigan (piano: Van Morrison), Alice Grollero (bass) and Dave Hingerty (drums: Josh Ritter, Kíla, Glen Hansard). The album will take influences from Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Richard Hawley and Bill Callahan.

Why Crowdfunding / Fund It?
If you want to help independent musicians like myself release more music, you can help by pre-ordering the album or choosing one of the other rewards like a socially distant House Concert (5 to 15 audience members depending on restrictions). Or a T-shirt, Tote Bag, Concert Tickets, Video Call, Songwriting/Guitar Lesson and more. Please make sure to send me your post address details for delivery of the signed CDs.

  

The Costs
This album will cost me at least €10.000 (or more like €13.000) to make, I can cover half these fees myself with some of my savings, but need help covering the other €5.000. Expenses include; recording studios (Audioland Studios & Ventry Studios), musician fees, rehearsal fees, string arrangements, the string quartet, music videos, CD duplication, mastering, and online distrubution. And with corona; with cancellation of gigs it means artists like me rely solely on album sales for income.


The Risks
I believe there are music lovers that will help me raise the target of €5000. If I raise more I'll get to shoot shoot a more high budget short film style music video for my song 'Let There Be Light'! I'll be recording the album over the autumn/winter. The album's official release date might be pushed back with corona (2021 or 2022), but funders will receive the album months before its official release with the bonus song!



Thank You!
Thanks for supporting me and my band and for being so lovely. Feel free to spread the word too!
I hope I’ll see you around, at a socially distant house concert or, one day, at a real gig again!

Jane Willow - Debut Album Update | Post



Hi lovely crowdfunders!!! I've great news! This one woman operation put a good few CDs on the post to you today! I also made a handmade bird stamp for the card that I'm giving with the signed albums. It was a fun and long process. But totally worth it!!

Most CD orders will be arriving over the next month or so. Some might get there earlier, some later. The T-shirt / tote bag orders might take longer depending on weather I can convince my housemate to help me out haha.

I already emailed you the (early) funders only digital download of the album a few weeks ago (through janewillowmessage(at)hotmail(dot)com). Thanks for the lovely response so far. I can't wait for the album to be out officially on November 19th! Feel free to help spread the word about 'Burn So Bright' when it's out.

Also I'm working on a Breda, Netherlands headline show, but it might be another while until I can make that happen as some things outside of my control aren't going as planned at the moment. But keep an eye on my social media or mailing list for that.

And I'm performing in Dublin Whelan's on Monday Jan 31st to celebrate the album's release. It will be the only full band show for the forseeable future. We'll play the album front to back. For tickets go here.

I hope to maybe see you at one of my upcoming gigs or house concerts. And I hope you're all doing well.

Thanks so much for everything!

Jane Willow - Fundit.ie - Digital Album! (Nederlandstalige email/clarification)

Hi, I just thought I'd send a Dutch language email too. Nederlands versie onderaan.

To clarify the download to the album is not in this email as this is public email that visible on the fundit.ie website. For the digital download of the album (dropbox) check for an email coming from janewillowmessage(at)hotmail(dot)com You are getting the a private download of the album early (months before its official release) because you wonderful crowdfunders at fundit.ie made it possible for me to record this album and I want to make sure you know how much I appreciate you by giving you the album early. Also you get two bonus songs! No one else will have this album yet, so obviously don't share the album download link with anyone (!) or talk about it too much until it comes out officially in November if that is possible. I hope you got my email with the digital download okay from janewillowmessage(at)hotmail(dot)com I hope you are as proud of the album as I am! :) xx Jane Willow

 

Hoi, om even duidelijk te maken, in deze mail staat de download niet omdat deze email die je nu krijgt publiek op de fundit.ie website komt te staan. Ik heb je een ander mailtje gestuurd met een digitale download van het album (dropbox) via mijn email janewillowmessage(at)hotmail(punt)com Dus check in je mail daarvoor aub. Jullie super geweldige mensen hebben mijn album gecrowdfund / gesponsord via fundit.ie en daarom krijgt iedereen het album een paar maanden eerder als bedankje daarvoor. En je krijgt 2 bonus songs! Het album komt officieel pas uit in November, dus deel alsjeblieft het album niet (dit album is alleen voor jullie fundit.ie crowdfunders) en indien mogelijk praat pas over het album als het uitkomt later in November. Het mailtje met de digitale download komt dus via janewillowmessage(at)hotmail(punt)com Ik hoop dat je het album mooi vindt! Ik ben er echt super trots op! xx Jane Willow

Jane Willow Fundit Update: I need Your Address Details / T-Shirt Size Details

Hi!

I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the sunshine! I'm hoping to get some address and T-shirt size details of some of you so I can start start sending out rewards to you lovely lovely folks! Hence this email/update.

I myself am doing pretty good right now. I'm vaccinated! And I might have some upcoming gigs, but am waiting on the details. Also a few days ago James Taylor featured my cover video of his song in his newletter!!! Whaaa! It's so nice that my live YouTube cover videos are getting such a lovely response.

Most importantly though, we’re finally mastering my debut album that you made possible. It's pretty hard to record and mix music during corona times, but we're nearly there now! And you are the reason that I managed to record this album, pay my musicians, sound people and studio fees. Thank you so much for helping me through fundit.ie back in October '20 to make this all possible!

 

I plan to release my debut album in November 2021. With Dave Hingerty on drums and Joe Csibi (Head Of RTE Concert Orchestra) on string arrangements! And with a lovely guest appearance from Steve Wickham (The Waterboys) and Pat Byrne (Winner The Voice 2012). Very awesome!! Ahh!


If you can please forward me your address details so I can send you the signed CD (for anyone who donated €20 or more). Also please let me know what T-shirt size you need if this was part of your reward. Check here about the rewards if you're not sure anymore which one you had (the fundit was Oct 2020). Or if you've any questions let me know.

I also sent out emails to anyone who donated over €100 about upcoming the (covid-compliant) house concerts. If you haven't heard from me check your spam inbox or email me.

I hope to have the digital download of the album to you in a month from now long prior to its official release in November 2021. And I hope to have the physical CD and other rewards to you in the next 2-3 months. Though some songwiting or cover rewards might take a little longer.

If you haven't gotten a physical CD from me by late September please reach out to me by email. Or if any other rewards have gone missing let me know.

Thanks again for helping make this album possible. It really means a lot!

Jane Willow Album 100% Funded!!!

Ahh!! Yesssssss! My album is 100% funded! 107 people supported the creation of this album with an average donation of €48! I can not believe it!

Thank you so much making new music possible! Just to paint a picture, one day of recording the string quertet alone costs me 1950 euro (350 euro per string player + 450 for the studio). And that's not including the fees I'll be paying for string arrangements. Or the costs for the other amazing players on the album (drums, bass, piano, electric guitar etc). So THANK YOU for making it possible!

We've 4 more days left in the album fundraiser (it ends on Friday 10am October 16th)! Any extra funds I raise will go towards recording a music video for 'In Your House There', a song that will be on the album. I just heard the first rough mix for the song and I'm very proud of it!

Here's a snippet of 'In Your House There': https://soundcloud.com/janewillowmusic/jane-willow-in-your-house-there-snippet/s-FYFiB634tp3

Thank you again and I hope we raise some extra funds so I can pay a filmcrew to make a beautiful video for that song! If you know of a music loving friend that might want to order the album too, please let them know now. The fundraiser closes on Friday 10am Irish time.

Thank you!!

Jane Willow's Album is 76% funded!

Hi,




A quick update to say that the album got 76% funded in the first 3 weeks of the album fundraiser. With your support I wouldn't have made it there! Thank you!!


We have one week left to get to 100% funded. We have to make the target to get to keep the funds raised.

If you'd like you can help spread the word, maybe you know a music loving friend that would like to join? With a little more support we can push this album fundraiser over the line!

Hope all's well and that you're keeping safe.
