Help Support Dave’s NEW Album on Pledge Music now!!!

Hey Beat Fans,

OK, this is something I know all of you have been waiting for…a NEW ALBUM –>
For Crying Out Loud!

And all of you can get in on the ground floor and make this happen through PLEDGE MUSIC.

Here’s how…well p’raps I’ll just let Dave explain it to you himself:

If video freezes, pause it & allow it to fully load before playing, ty!!

I am the most excited anyone has ever been about our PledgeMusic campaign! I have always enjoyed interacting with the band’s fans, and this Pledge campaign provides us with a tremendous opportunity for even greater hi jinks and connection!

Over the next coming weeks and months, we will take you through the laughter and joy, the pain and fear of making a pop record, from early dark brooding fumblings to its final triumphant and glorious release! Ahhh!

Will it be like making sausage or political compromise, or will people behave because there are cameras around?! Haha! Become a part of this adventure and find out, by being an artistic benefactor, a modern day Medici to this monumental project!

The songs have been hand picked from a cauldron of passion, cuddled for endless nights, then tested for connectivity in front of selected crowds, and are now ready to be fully realized and revealed! I would be as pleased as punch if you would join us on this journey….

POWER TO THE PEOPLE…!

A portion of your Pledge will go to Doctors without Borders, a wonderful group that bring comfort around the world, wherever needed. Compassion in the face of cruelty, courage in the face of fear, we are proud to stand with them.

Thanks and see you soon,

Love,

Dave Wakeling
