Press Release – for immediate release – Tuesday 3rd February 2015
People Powered Music
Irish singer-songwriter Mick McHugh is taking his career to the next level with the launch of his Pozible crowd funding campaign to record and release his Debut Studio Album.
Born and raised in Dublin, Mick has been based in Australia since 2005. The hard working musician has toured consistently and has had the honour of supporting some of Ireland’s greatest singer-songwriters and bands – Damien Dempsey, Mundy, Paddy Casey, Mick Flannery, John Spillane, Aslan – as well as Australian Idol winner Damien Leith, UK hit songwriter Ralph McTell, Pete Murray and has performed at The Sydney Opera House, Dublin’s iconic Vicar Street, and being on the same line up as The Pogues, John Fogarty and John Butler Trio at The Byron Bay Bluesfest.
In 2014, Mick joined Troubadour Music’s management roster, and with their guidance and experience, and your support through his Pozible crowd funding campaign, they are planning Mick’s debut studio album of songs that have been written across Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.
Mick believes songwriting is measured by how it makes people feel, if it helps people through difficult times or to celebrate the good moments in life. Mick says “Music is so powerful, and we can’t underestimate its value in society. Music and songs have gotten me through so many moments and helped me feel the magic in life, and that is what I aim to give back to others every time I write a song – I want to inspire, to get people through, and to write powerful and meaningful songs. For me, it is about the connection between humanity.”
Mick needs your help to reach his target. He is using an online Australian platform called Pozible, whereby the public can pledge a financial support and choose a reward for their pledge – such as a signed copy of the album, a digital download of the album, or a personalised happy birthday message from Mick, a CD pack from Troubadour Music’s artist touring roster, or a house concert where Mick will come and perform for you and your friends in your own lounge room!
This is independent music at its purist, people powered music, where you, the public, get to be part of helping independent artists record and release their music.
Mick McHugh’s crowd funding campaign launches 2pm, Tuesday 3rd February 2015 and will run for 60 days till 12pm Saturday 4th April. To make a pledge to Mick’s campaign, please visit:
