Hello from Bernard Fleming & Oisin Daly. AKA - Vudu Nation
Connected by an almost insane love of creating music we first started collaborating 2 years ago. Having come from diverse musical backgrounds and visions it fast became apparent our differences suited the more experimental sides of our nature.
Following over a year on the road as RUBEN S7ONE which incurred the usual Rock & Roll drama such as members coming & going, equipment lost/stolen, broken & our jeep blowing up on a day which ended with the highlight of playing at the CORK x SOUTHWEST 2011 festival alongside such great names as JAPE, FRED, YUCK, & the amazing PATTI SMITH.
Our reputation as a band on stage was one of high energy married with strong musicianship. That will always be our minimum going forward.
Following the departure of two members of the band we decided instead of recruiting new members to end the chapter that was RUBEN S7ONE and deliver the long overdue EP that we had planned.
So this brings us to now....... &
With a brand new approach what was an EP fast became a Concept double album due to the impossible task of choosing which songs to omit.......
The album....... "BINARY"
Which is due for release in early April 2012 featuring a high profile LAUNCH GIG in CORK which will be the culmination of over two years writing, arranging and production experimentation. We believe we have found our niche.
With that as you well know self funding any project of this nature & magnitude is a strain on all resources, especially financial. Though we appreciate how tough times are we believe in our abilities and potential to deliver to a standard and uniqueness in our music and we are aiming to achieve at the highest possible level.
This is where you guys come in. We have an ethos in our music that it is for everyone, So it gives us great satisfaction in reaching out to you for assistance as you can have a hand in any of our present & future development & achievement. Any & all funds raised are allocated directly to the costs of recording, mastering & marketing as well as the pressing & delivery of the CDs, posters etc. These funds will be spent predominantly in Ireland to support our small business economy so you are also making a difference from the ground level up.
The level of funding we are seeking is a small but very significant percentage of the costs we will incur in 2012 whilst delivering our sound live to you in Ireland & beyond.
Please take some time out to listen to us on Soundcloud, Reverb Nation and also on Facebook.
We would like to thank you in advance for your kindness & support.......
