I love that guy…
Now before we start I would like to say a BIG 6 foot thankyou to DREW for reclaiming www.imogenheap.com! Hurrah! It’s always been slightly infuriating that some random guy had STOLEN it from me about 6 years ago, Over the years I’ve tried every now and then to get it back off whoever it was but it was quite difficult when the guy demanded I send him, not a photocopy, but my actual passport! Yeah, right…like I’m going to do that. Very bizarre…anyway about a week ago, out of the big lucky blue I received an email from this guy who said he was in the process of buying imogenheap.com as it had been up for auction and that he needed to get our details of us so he could transfer it over as as a gift to me! WOW…thank you! Such a sweet thing to do. MWAH! again in public!
It’s been a strange start to the new year. Trying to find some other rhythm to my days. For the last year I’ve had a mission to accomplish. Must Finish Record…no matter what else was uncertain in my life that was the absolute no brainer. I’ve been itching to get it finished for so long, I don’t know what I expected would happen once it was (apart from jumping for joy and perhaps a spot of celebratory catch up binge drinking) I guess I thought I’d just come to that part once it was done. So what do I do now and In what order?
My heart is now firmly on my sleeve…
I’ve started by making CD after CD to send out to various people. I’m beginning to rally together a team in the UK to help me get this album off it’s arse and out into the big wide world. If I can get my ‘dream team’ together to work this record, then I really believe I/ we can do this. So right now I’m looking for distribution, press, TV and radio people to come onboard, UK only, just to start with…
I’m not taking on the world just yet. I’ve decided to get the artwork and my band together here in London. I have my studio already and it seems silly to let the space go unused while I dissapear off. I’m starting over here for once. For some reason I’ve always gone to the States first but this time I thought I’d give it a bash on home turf to begin with. I plan to get the album out on all major legal music download sites by the end of February, then I’m going for a UK release mid April. If countries around the world want to pick up on licensing the album then I’m all for it…bringing people in along the way who really love the record and who want to work with it. Giving the attention to places who take an interest. To “GO where the LOVE is!
Ever since I decided to do things differently, great things have come my way. There are a dozen or so people who’ve hopped on throughout the journey so far who have been so fantastic and helped me beyond the call of duty that I feel like I’m just going along with the current and I don’t want to get in the way of a good thing.
I’m going to try and film as much of this as I can too (it’ll be head shots of me until I work off that studio belly and tan). Got a great DV camera for Christmas (thanks everyone!!!). I wonder how it’ll all pan out??
Until we scribble again…xxx
