SONG PREMIERE!! ‘HEADED SOUTH FOR A WHILE’

The roots website Americana Highways have today premiered Ags’s new single ‘Headed South For A While’!

They say: “Ags Connolly’s vocals contain an indelibly gritty wisdom that brings comfort to your jittery heart, and the way accordion is played adds a Western tinge to the production.”

‘Headed South For A While’ is the first single from Ags’s new album ‘Siempre’, which is due for release on 16th June 2023.

NEW ALBUM RECORDING COMPLETED!!

As was recently imparted to all the backers of the Kickstarter campaign, the new album ‘Siempre’ has now been recorded and mixed!

There’s still a way to go before it sees the light of day but the sessions were productive and successful, ably engineered and overseen by Stuart Jones at Woodworm Studios in Oxfordshire.

More news to come as things move forward with ‘Siempre’!

JUST OVER A MONTH TO GO ON THE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!

The Kickstarter campaign to fund Ags’s new album ‘Siempre’ has just over a month left to run!

The campaign is intended to enable the recording and production of the new album, and will only succeed if it is fully funded. Support so far has been incredible but there is still a little way to go!

If you haven’t had a chance yet, head over to the campaign page to see what the fuss is about! Check out Ags’s plans for the album and the rewards on offer for backers – oh, and ask any questions you may have…

You can back the campaign and read all about it HERE.

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED!!

Yes folks, today Ags is launching a Kickstarter campaign for his next album, ‘Siempre’. As you may know, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that raises money for projects through ‘backers’ who essentially buy a piece of work (in this case, the album) in advance, among other exclusive rewards, to support the process of it being made.

This album will be a further exploration of the ‘border’-style rhythms that have gradually crept into Ags’ albums and he is excited about the songs that are lined up for it. However, Ags needs your help to make it a reality… 

There are full details and a more thorough description of the project and how you can back it HERE.

Please take a look and consider backing the campaign. Thanks in advance for your time!
