Hello, Good Friend (Nick Dow EP)

Project 2019-06-24 19:01:33 +1200

The dream to record my first professional album has been achieved thanks to those of you who supported it a couple of years ago! I was blown away by how many of you helped, and delighted by the response to the finished product. Now it is time to release something new. I have new music! A new vision for where I am going.

The last album was a culmination of my life's work to that point. This collection has a stronger, more positive voice. I'm not trying to change the world, but I hope this small contribution will be helpful to some.

In April this year I travelled back down to Lyttleton to record with the world-renowned Ben Edwards (Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding). Due to some unexpected circumstances life got in the way, so I’m having to go back to finish everything off. With another recording session there comes another cost, and the obstacle I am facing is the finance.

Since releasing the last record, I have been working as a child support worker at Point England School, teaching piano privately after work and working as a session musician to save up for this. Sadly, it still isn’t enough, and I have not been successful in getting any grants from the limited music funds available. I had hoped not to have to rely on your generosity again. And I do appreciate we all have our own dreams to resource. But If you can help in any way towards achieving this second big step in a career long dreamed of, I would be forever grateful!

Much love,

Nick
