Help Richard Clapton Make His Next Album In Nashville

Richard Clapton has turned to his fans to generate a budget to record his next album in Nashville.

Clapton has started a Pledge Music crowd funding campaign to raise the necessary funds to record the new album later this year. To launch the project he has compiled a number of collectibles to entice fans to contribute. They include records from his personal collection and hand-written lyrics of some of his classic songs. He will even come to your house and play … for a price.

“Crowd funding is a great way for you to engage directly in the careers of your favourite musicians and feel like being part of something worthwhile,” Richard says at his Pledge Music page. “It is also a great way to collect special memorabilia and other artefacts from the special private collections of the artists. In my case I have kept certain items from my career some of which have become quite valuable. If there was ever going to be a reason to part with these items of Australian music history then this is it – it’s almost recycling when you think about it – using stuff from my past to finance my future”.

To be part of the Richard Clapton crowdfunding project head to Pledge Music.
