DAMON JOHNSON Launches PledgeMusic Campaign For 2018 Solo Album
May 17, 2018, 8 days ago
Guitarist / vocalist Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders, Brother Cane, Alice Cooper) is "coming to you with much gratitude, excitement and information about my upcoming solo album, Memoirs Of An Uprising.
And I will be working for the first time as a solo artist with PledgeMusic.
The recording of these 10 brand new songs is almost complete. I’ve got a few more overdubs to do, and then straight into getting it mixed, mastered and packaged.
But this album is extra special for me because for the first time ever I’m going to release a solo album on Vinyl, as well as CD. And through this PledgeMusic campaign there will be lots of super exclusive items available only to YOU, and loads of unique video content from home, the studio, and the road.
The fact that I’m getting to make this album at all is purely down to the support and love you all have shown for my music over the past three decades. And as I discussed this fact with PledgeMusic, they have encouraged me to 'un-earth' and make available one-of-a-kind items during this campaign… things like bundles of exclusive photos and memorabilia from all my various band endeavors; my small Peavy practice amp that I’ve written songs on ever since Brother Cane’s Seeds album; a 'still-in-the-shrink-wrap' copy of my long time out-of-print Dust CD; even autographed guitars…and much more.
Again, this is the first time for me to work with PledgeMusic as a solo artist. And the catalyst is absolutely this new music I’ve created. The songs are inspired and my band (Tony, Jarred & Tony) played and sound amazing as always. And I feel these songs deserve as much exposure as possible, even in this day and age where the business of making and distributing music has changed dramatically.
I’m asking for your help. I need your help! I’m at least asking you to check it out what we’re offering through this PledgeMusic campaign.
So come back to this page often as some archival items will be added regularly. Now, please go tell your friends who might not be in the flow of traffic to check it all out, too!
Thank you for giving me this life in music. I’m so proud of this next album. Together, we’re gonna give it the eyes and ears that it deserves. You guys are the best…
Love & Music - Damon"
