the Brobdingnagian Bards Record, Produce, & Release More Music and Lyrics
Are you a
fan of our music? Do you enjoy Celtic music? Folk music? Filk music? Do
you want to hear our latest songs on an album? Do you like our free Celtic lyrics directory?
know we don't have a record label giving us millions of dollars to live
our dreams of playing music for the world. In fact, our only income comes
from selling CDs after shows. Or from amazing fans who reach into their
wallet and place a five dollar bill into our tip bucket that reads, "Et
twenty years from now. Do you want to feel like you made a difference
in the world? What could you have done differently?
We drive in my Toyota Corolla throughout the United States, stopping at
McDonalds after McDonalds for another fast food meal. Often you can see
us sitting in your local airport reading books and writing songs as we
wait for our next flight to Colorado, New York, California, or Missouri.
It's not an easy life. It certainly isn't cheap. If we can maintain this
lifestyle on the road, we can continue to make a difference. All we need
is a little help.
I don't want
to bore you with all the expenses we incur from our music from gas to
vehicle maintenance, cell phones to internet connection and web hosting,
printing costs, duplication, purchasing recording equipoment, mailing
CDs and promo kits. And lets not forget how much I spend on replacing
broken strings. The list goes on and on.
I always felt it was important to give our fans a LOT of music, despite
the exhoribant cost. Yet, Andrew keeps telling me that we really need
to stop and catch up. The problem is we record more music than we can
reasonably afford to print. We're still paying off the CD duplication
bills from two CDs ago. Heck, two years ago, I had to borrow over four
thousand dollars from my mom to pay for just the duplication of Memories
of Middle Earth, and we have yet to pay it off!
We love making
music for you. I want to continue singing and recording, sharing my love
of music for the rest of my life. But to do that we need an extra hand.
We put together some sponsorship packages that I hope
you will consider reading over. Music doesn't have to be force-fed to
you by corporate radio stations. It can be savored like a fine wine or
relished like a warm Guinness. That's what we try to do. If you can help
out today, that's okay too. If you still just love the music, please take
a moment to drop us an email and tell us. We love to hear your kind comments.
Because quite honestly, that's what our music is all about. It's about
sharing our music with friends around the globe.
bards and we're friendly!
