Frequently asked questions
Songs of the Watchmen
When will I receive my copy of the album?
At this stage we can't give a definite date as to exactly when that will be. Much depends on how quickly we raise the money and how quickly we're then able to book studio time - but we hope it will be by the start of next summer (if not before). We will of course keep you updated if anything changes along the way, and when the album is due to be released you will receive your copy in advance so you can be among the first to enjoy it!
How will you send me my copy?
If you’ve ordered a digital copy we’ll send you an email with a link from which you can download the album. If you’ve ordered a CD we will post it to you free of charge.
I’ve ordered the chord charts – when will I get those?
When we send you the download link for the album we’ll also send you a download link to the chord charts.
I requested a YouTube cover of one of my favourite songs – when will I get to watch it?
It’ll take us between 2-4 weeks to practise, record and put the song online. When it’s done we’ll send you the link and make sure you’re the first to see it!
How’s the online gig going to work?
As soon as you’ve made your order we’ll get in touch to organise a time and a date for the gig. We’ll do our best to find a date within 2 weeks but that might not be possible depending on our respective schedules. The gig will last between an hour and an hour and a half. We'll do some songs from the new album, share some stories and even do some requests. All other details we’ll send you nearer the time!
Tell me more about the songwriting workshop!
We can do a 1-on-1 workshop, online or in person (depending on location), or if you’d like to get lots of people involved we can do a group session online or in person (again, depending on location and Covid-19 government guidelines). As soon as you’ve made your order we’ll get in touch to organise a time and a date. We’ll do our best to find a date within 2 weeks but that might not be possible depending on our respective schedules. The workshop itself will be very practical, with lots of interaction and participation. We will share with you songwriting tips and tricks that we have learnt over the years, and you will have a chance to put them into practice over the course of the session. No previous experience required!
What kind of songs can I ask you to write?
We’re happy to write a song for any occasion: for a celebration, a solemn occasion, a specific person… whatever takes your fancy! We’ll get in touch with you to make sure we know exactly what you want so you absolutely love the final song. We’d estimate it will take us a month to write the song and record a demo for you – but if you have a specific deadline please let us know and we’ll do our best to get it ready by then! Please note – we do reserve the right to refuse any request that goes against our faith or compromises our values.
I want to dream together! What are you offering?
Whatever you’d like - let’s think big! Our only stipulations are that it is in accordance with Covid-19 government guidelines and that it’s something crazy or epic. We’ll get in touch and work something out together!
What happens if you haven't raised all the money you need by the deadline?
We are confident that we will be able to raise everything we need to record the album, and we will do everything we can to ensure we reach our target. If we are still short of our goal by the deadline we will make a decision then as to what we do going forward - potentially to extend the deadline, or simply to go ahead with the project with the money we have. We will of course keep you all up to date with any such decisions we make. One thing is certain - we are firmly committed to making this album and will remain committed to honouring every donation we've received towards it!
