“How do you fall in love with somebody you’ve never met?” is an exciting new concept story album, brought to life by the fabulous cast of Julie Atherton, Richard Fleeshman, Russel Tovey and Anna-Jane Casey.
The twelve original songs will tell the story of a girl who is asked the fateful question of the title. There will be tears, there will be laughter, there will be furniture. There is unlikely to be blood. The songs on the album will also form the basis of a portable stage-show, set on a sofa in a Manchester salsa club.
To pledge please click here.
Your pledge will go towards the creation of the concept album which includes writing, recording studio time, engineers, musicians, a cast, theatre, CD manufacture and distribution, printing and all other production costs. You are helping to make this amazing idea into a reality. Best of all, you will receive (at least – depending on what you pledge) the finished album that will make you laugh, cry and utilise the lounge furniture for years to come.
