Nothing fills a stocking like…

…Caleb’s frankly magnificent calf muscles. But you can’t have those for Christmas, you weirdo, you’ll have to get a Layers CD instead. Yes, our third studio album, “Fistful of Change” is taking shape in the studio and we’re optimistic that it should be ready to be piled onto reindeer-driven sleds covering for striking Royal Mail operatives in time for Kwanzaa.

It’s been a brilliant week to be a Layer – firstly our crowdfunding campaign, powered by the wonderful people at Fundsurfer, exceeded our cautious expectations and raised almost £1800 along with some amazing offers of practical support.

Secondly, we’ve been recording all weekend. Time in the studio is always great fun but this weekend has been extra special as some of the tracks near completion and we can start to hear how they’re going to sound when finished. In addition, this weekend saw DB studios deluged with visitors coming to sing on a very special project – more on this very soon.

It’s been humbling to receive such generous support in terms of funding, expertise and time and we’d like to take this opportunity to everyone who put in time and effort this weekend to come and make a musical contribution. It was great fun having you all in the studio and we hope that you’re as thrilled as we are with the results when you hear them.

Is it just me or does this look like Jim’s giving an informative tour of DB studios?

There’s an incredible amount of work to be done over the next month or so but we very much hope that in just a few short weeks, we’ll be packaging up CDs, t-shirts and VIP passes for our backers. All we can offer for now is a bottomless reserve of gratitude and a request to hang on in there for a little while.

News of a pre-release bonus track soon – watch this space!

Unlimited love from The Layers.

I like books and I try to read lots. I'd like to write them too but it takes ages so mostly I write rambling blog entries. When I'm not doing that I cram as much participation in sport and music as I can in the tiny gaps between long bouts of working my arse off.
