Dave's upcoming album 'Journal of a Journey Buoy' is being released through Pledge Music. Pledge now!
For those unfamiliar with Pledge, it’s essentially a pre-order but with a tonne of perks. The funds raised make the album cycle a reality so in return I’ll be showing my gratitude in a number of ways all the way through until 2015. To name but a few of the bonuses there will be an abundance of unheard material given away, exclusive behind-the-scenes videos plus your name in the CD booklet.
After reaching 258% of it's Pledge Music campaign target, 'Dreamoirs', Dave McPherson's latest studio album is finally available for general purchase!
Many thanks to those who Pledged - you've not only been able to get your hands on the album but also helped a great cause along the way with 5% of all funds raised being given to the Find out more about the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
For those who didn't get round to Pledging, you can get your hands on the album via Dave's on line store.
Thank you so much. Music means everything to me and so does your support. Next stop 300%!
For those who have already Pledged, don't forget that you can Pledge more than once if anything else in the incentive list takes your fancy.
'Dreamoirs', set to be released this Spring through Pledge Music, is set to be one of Dave's most involving records to date. With the campaign launching on the 1st of February 2013 you can get your hands on an abundance of exclusive music, multimedia, unique updates and mountains more from Dave as added bonuses just for Pledge-ing. Play a helping hand in keeping music personal in a manner that massively benefits you as listeners, artists and charities - Pledge!

I've been toying with a crazy new concept outside of my 2013 Pledge campaign for the last few weeks and have an experiment I want to challenge myself with as well as involving you in the process.
Commencing on January 1st 2013 and ending on December 31st 2013, I'm going to write 365 acoustic songs. These will be sent weekly (7 songs each Monday for the most part) so as not to overwhelm your inboxes! For the conceptual price of £36.50 (via paypal) you'll receive all 365 songs (10p per song) digitally (via wetransfer.com) throughout the year.
Only 365 will initially be able to be involved in the idea as one special inclusion is that each song will be named after those who decide to become part of my challenge. After that people will still be able to purchase the bundle of songs but not have a song named after them.
Oh yeah, one more thing. Anyone that gets involved before the end of the year also gets sent my 238 song digital bundle of old solo stuff/side projects etc via wetransfer. So that's 603 songs for £36.50 which if my maths (calculator) serves me well is 6p per song. Who says purchasing music has to be expensive? Thanks as always for being part of my musical adventures.
I'm excited to announce that you can now purchase and stream all my music from one page! I'll be uploading the rest of my discography soon plus it still needs a lick of paint here and there. Let me know your thoughts. Happy Friday! http://davemcpherson.bandcamp.com/
