What is 'FOLIAGE'?

This is a 4 track EP in which I've stepped out from my usual acoustic guitar/vocals format to arrange and produce the songs for a larger group, including drums and bass, electric guitars, piano, percussion, backing vocals, a brass trio a string quartet... For this occasion I wished to bring to life all the sound colours and textures I had in my mind.

Take a listen to the same song bit in acoustic and 'foliage' version, so that you can have an idea:
[Soundcloud item unavailable]

That's why the EP is called ‘Foliage’.This is also illustrated on cover, which is a painting by the artist Toby Rainbird-Webb created specifically for this project.

To make honoer of the bright and colourful character of the record, we're going to officially release it on March the 20th,celebrating the Spring Equinox.

About the rewards

we've designed very interesting rewards. There are packs for all budgets with an excellent quality/price ratio.

  • There are two special editions for this campaign patrons only'
  • All the rewards will be dedicated and signed personally on the website and the special brochure included with the EP.
  • There are exclusive items including high quality framed posters, t-shirts, notebooks, launch party tickets, private concerts... All sorts!

What are we going to invest the money raised in?

Most of the artistic production is now finished (recording, mixing, mastering, artwork...).
We'll invest your contributions in the executive side of the production, which is essential for a music project. In a way you'll become producers!

  • First edition of cds and merchandise
  • Music video
  • PR campaign (to make a booze about the release, interviews and reviews in music magazines, radio airplay, publishing, social media, etc.).

We'll keep all of you who take part posted about the news related to the project, the stages and deadlines of the production, all interviews, reviews and everything else related to the PR campaign.

Calendar

  • We'll run the crowdfunding campaign from late November/December to mid January.
  • From late January to March we'll lead the PR campaign and produce the music video.
  • The EP release is due on the 20th of March coinciding with the Spring Equinox.

All the patrons will receive their EP in digital format exclusively 2 weeks before the release.

Belvolguts/des mecenes,

Us escric per posar-vos al corrent del desenvolupament del projecte a partir d’ara i de l’entrega de les recompenses.
Com deia el calendari orientatiu a la pàgina de Verkami, la data ideal del llançament oficial de l’EP serà el 20 de març, tot i que potser que varii per questions de la campanya promocional. Sembla que el 20 de març quedi lluny, però en aquests 2 mesos s’ha de fer tot això:

  • Gestionar la publicació dels cds i les recompenses
  • Gestionar les presentacions a Catalunya i UK (segurament es faran cap a mitjans d’abril)
  • Enregistrar i editar el videoclip
  • Actualitzar el web
  • Contactar amb l’agencia de PR i dur a terme la campanya de promoció, que normalment comença de 4 a 6 setmanes abans de l’estrena.

A finals de gener, principis de febrer, us enviaré un altre email per posar-vos al corrent del punt en el que estiguin totes aquestes questions.

Bon dia estimats/des mecenes
Després dels primers 10 dies volia compartir amb vosaltres com va la campanya:

  1. Portem el 31% del total, així que la cosa va tirant.

  2. El Taller de Músics, que té un canal a Verkami, ha recolzat el projecte (jo hi he sigut alumne i professor), la qual cosa és molt bona notícia de cara a la imatge de la campanya!

  3. El vostre suport ha activat la meva part creativa i he començat a escriure una nova cançó dedicada a vosaltres. Aquí en teniu un trosset:
    NOVA CANÇÓ EN PROCÉS

Moltíssimes gràcies de nou pel vostre support, seguim! xxx

Good morning dear patrons,
After the first 10 days I'd like to share some information with you:

  1. We've reached the 31% of the overall goal, so it looks like we're slow but steady!

  2. The music institution Taller de Músics who has a Verkami channel, has decided to support the project (I used to study and then teach there), which is great news in terms of the image of the campaign!
