Hey friends Luke here from www LukeHurley.co.nz just want to tell you I havent forgotten you and thank you for subscribing I have news. Jan Bille the guy who produced Reha (if you are unfamiliar with this album has offered to produce another album for me. Listen below.
Some opportunities have emerged but this one is the ruby in the dust. I believe in NZ and in the great technical and production skills we have in our own land. We don’t need to go to the big continent on overinflated debt driven budgets to record in namo studios when for a fraction of the price we can do it all at home with heart and soul. And not have to resort to hard living to satisfy the dubious multi national “spirit” of global enterprise. Who cares? a five year old can go international from a smart phone.
It’s come full circle International is zzzzzzzzzzzz and national is exciting why? cause in the end its about the music and not the prestige of “reaching the world” and its way harder to win over your own country than to get overseas kudos.
It’s like you have to wander all over the world to find the pearl of great price when in fact it was right there in plain sight sitting on the mantle piece.
The former manager of a great NZ studio told me that he could have made much better albums for artists who were compelled by their labels to blow their budget overseas Same budget applied at home would have delivered masterpieces
With that in mind please support this venture as we get no funding from the “normal” channels why?coz the songs i write are not nor ever purport to be commercial
Thanks for you great support without it I wouldn’t have a leg to stand on
Please let us know if there are any gigs possible in Hokitika in the next four days as that is where we will be. After that Christchurch call me if you have any leads. No gig too small as the cliche goes 021 0259 2919
