do it yourself

bernie torme

Always a bit of a maverick, Bernie Tormé has embraced the DIY ethos made possible by the web, and is working on a second album to be funded through his fan base. It’s a great way to get things done, especially in this day and age of disappearing record shops, disinterested labels and monolithic web retailers.  You can read all about the new project on his pledgepage (plus be able to listen to some cuts from the last album – the guitar / harmonica duetting sounds great) and people who join up get all sorts of extras, bonus bits and pieces, right up to the chance to actually get involved in doing the backing vox!  On top of all that 10% of funds raised after the goal is reached go a teenage cancer charity.
To be fair, Bernie probably doesn’t need us to plug him – his last CD was funded four time over – but he is one of the good guys.
Thanks to Lee Worrall.
