Over the past year and a half, in the spaces between working on my solo album and producing others, I have been quietly collaborating with my good friend and extraordinary songwriter Paul Freeman (Roger Daltrey, Robbie Williams) on another project called Bellows. I’m very excited to announce that our record is finally done! Here is a preview of our first single, “More.”
We tracked the whole record in my Brooklyn studio and finished right before I moved to LA. A month later, Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast. My studio was right on the border of evacuation zone 3 and would likely have made it through unscathed, but many musicians and artists in other parts of the city lost everything, literally. Although I felt incredibly lucky to be reading about it from weatherless LA, I also felt helpless being so far away from my recent home, and it was impossible not to imagine what it might have been like to watch my (uninsured) instruments, gear and belongings take on water.
Paul, Eddie Jackson (the album’s mixer) and I wanted to do something to help those struggling to return to normalcy after Sandy, so we decided to donate the entire Bellows record as a benefit to help raise funds for those in need. 100% OF PROCEEDS FROM SALES OF THIS ALBUM WILL GO DIRECTLY TO RELIEF AND REBUILDING EFFORTS in New York and New Jersey via The Brooklyn Recovery Fund and the New Jersey Relief Fund.
The record will be available exclusively for preorder ON THIS WEBSITE ONLY.
You will receive the following in your preorder package:
- Digital download of the entire Bellows record delivered to your inbox
- Limited edition Bellows poster designed and illustrated by Alex Wong
- Digital download of brand new unreleased song by A City On A Lake (Alex Wong’s solo project)
If you order by December 17th from within the continental U.S. (and the USPS cooperates) you will receive all of the above before Dec 24th juuuuussst in case you were considering giving this package as an awesome holiday gift (which would speak volumes of your generosity and impeccable taste.)
Please pass the link on to anyone you think might be interested in helping and/or our music. Thank you so much for your support and for making it possible for us to help our East Coast brothers and sisters this Holiday season.
If you’ve read this far down, you are undoubtedly one of the people who give me the ability to make a life out of making music, and I am deeply grateful for your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Wishing you all a rejuvenating Holiday.
