Indiegogo pledges shipping

Thank you everyone who pledged to Ben’s Indiegogo campaign in support of his new album, Rattlebag! The album is finished, and beautiful.

The Rattlebag CDs, Lullaby CDs, Lyric Sheets, Stickers and Tshirts are all in. We are in the process of breaking the orders out by region and then packaging the materials to send out this week.

The vinyl is still being pressed due to delays at the production plant, but we will give an update as soon as we know when you can expect those.

We are so looking forward to sharing this record exclusively with you, our Indiegogo supporters! If you didn’t pre-purchase the album through Indiegogo please standby for news about future release.

Support Ben’s Upcoming Solo Album

indie_logo

BIG NEWS – Ben has just returned from a short tour in the States including some time spent in Los Angeles where he wrote new material for his second solo record.

For those of you that have seen him live recently, you have heard the first bluesy track, “Patience and Rosaries.” Building on that tune, Ben is preparing to finish recording, packaging and exclusively releasing this record on his own. To do that, he is going the route of crowd sourcing through Indiegogo. Please have a look and pass this link on to everyone you know.

If you haven’t heard, “Patience and Rosaries”, there is a preview of it on his Indiegogo page, filmed by Becca Ellson with edits by Billy Green.
