Help Alex V Get To USA!

Project 2013-09-05 03:05:51 +1200

My name is Alex Vaatstra and I am a violinist based in Dunedin, NZ. I would dearly love to be able to play and record music over in the USA with my band the Julian Temple Band. I have greatly enjoyed touring the length and breadth of NZ with the Julian Temple Band (JTB) and now the time has come for us to make a journey through America bringing our unique sound to a wider audience. 

During my time working with the JTB we recorded the album "Upsidedownbackwards" and within a week of its release the album debuted on the Official New Zealand Music Chart reaching number 7 within 3 weeks. I also greatly enjoyed many tours around NZ with the JTB including a nationwide 18 date tour in the summer of 2013.




 As a versatile performing violinist I have enjoyed performing with many other Dunedin based musicians and bands including Nannystate, Alphastate, Kahu, Paul Cathro, BiKK, The Southern Sinfonia, Left or Right (it was only one song but I'll claim it!), Mama Yeva, the short lived Hand Shandy, The Alan Starret  The Ed Lonsdale Alex Vaatstra experience! I also teach the violin and get a real thrill when young violinists start to want to have a jam and record a song in the lesson in addition to practicing their solo Bach! Over the years I have recorded a number of string parts for a diverse variety of projects and albums however I am particularly excited about the new Julian Temple Band album which we plan to record  in the USA.

I would love your help getting to the USA; Julian has already booked an abundance of epic shows for our tour and has new songs for us to record. The rhythm section is all ready to go and with your help the violinist can make it over there too! It would be a trip of a life time for me as I have yet to venture too far afield and my dream has always been to travel to make music. Simply put, please help me I am very poor
