Fightstar Frontman Charlie Simpson Solo Album Update

Hello Pledgers!
First of all I would like to thank you all for making this exciting solo project possible. Your support has been truly incredible, and since being in the studio I haven’t been able to stop writing and working on the new songs. Its going so well that I’ve written way more than I expected! So as well as an exclusive mini-album just for you guys which I expect to be mixed, mastered, and ready for delivery by the end of October, I’m going to keep working on some of the songs I’ve written and hopefully end up with a full length album by the end of the year! Without your support, none of this would be possible.
So, let’s get down to business. Over the next few days we’ll be in touch to start fulfilling your pledges, and we may need some info from you to get this done. Have a read of the details below for the category that you’ve pledged in.
House concert
Congratulations to Jo Loveday! An exclusive intimate performance in your front room! We’ll be in touch this week to sort out the details.
Charlie’s signed Gibson SG guitar & 2 x Signed PRS SE guitar
Congratulations to Rachel Herworth (see pic below), Richard King and Andrew Vanstone! You guys will be emailed individually so you can let us know if you want a special message or dedication written on the guitar. Keep your eyes peeled on your inbox!
Sing gang vocals on a track on the mini album
The date has been set and the studio has been booked! This will be taking place on the afternoon of Friday 3rd September. I will personally give you some vocal tips and you will be working with a world class producer so bring your best singing voice!
Full day studio webcam w/Q&A
This will also take place on Friday 3rd September. I will set up the webcam when I arrive in the studio in the morning, and will chat with you as I work throughout the day. You will also get to watch me work with the other pledgers on gang vocals and give us some encouragement! There are still a few of these left, so snap them up before they’re all gone!
Design a page for the mini album artwork
Pledgers will be emailed with the details for delivering the artwork in the next couple of days- please keep your eyes peeled on your inbox!
Handwritten lyric sheet to a song from the new mini album
Signed & framed original mini album artwork
These will be sent out to you in September. When the songs are finished I will give you the option of choosing which song you’d like me write out for you. Hold tight!
Appear in a video
Pledgers only gig
Web streamed acoustic show
Come down to rehearsal
All of these will most likely be taking place in early November. We will drop you a line when we have more details!
Tour soundcheck access
2 x VIP tickets to any show – incl soundcheck/meet & greet
We will be putting a plan together for a live tour in a few weeks, as soon as work in the studio has finished!
I think that about covers it all. Phew. Now back to work! I can’t tell you guys how excited I am about the songs I’ve been writing. I never expected it to be such a great experience. It’s tough doing everything myself in the studio, but its inspiring work and I cannot wait to share it with you all.
As usual, my team will be on hand to answer any questions you guys have.
Love Charlie x
