Hi my name is Paul Bonetti. I am a singer/songwriter from Brisbane, Australia.

My first full length album is being released to the big wide world in May 2015. That's just two months away!

This album marks a step-up from my usual live sound. I am typically known for performing my diverse collection of songs armed only with my voice and acoustic guitar. This album, on the other hand, presents my songs the way they actually sound inside my head, recorded and produced with lots of excitement and energy.

The album is jam packed full of tunes that map out moody, bluesy, quirky tales of suburban love-lorn sentiment. All wrapped up in a tight little package featuring smatterings of indie-pop, R&B, country-shufflin, balls-out rock, and soulful acoustic ballads. These diverse styles have allowed each of my songs on the album to find their ideal musical home.

So far, all the tracking and recording has been completed on the album: punchy horn sections, sultry cellos, clarinets, trombone, tight-knit vocal harmonies, quirky synths, grinding Farfisa bass organ, and smokin drums and bass.

I have recently had the privilege of being in the studio with the incredible talent of Yanto Browning, who has been mixing the 11 tracks on my new album. Yanto has worked with the likes of The Medics, Kate Miller-Heidke, Art of Sleeping, Yves Klein Blue, The Belligerents and The Jungle Giants. And with this experience behind him, I have been so grateful of the way he has brought these tracks to life.

Check out the great ways that you can support this project.
You can pre-purchase your own copy of the album, plus there are many other gifts and goodies that you can get by pledging your support!

Many thanks in anticipation of your support. I hope you enjoy the tunes!

How The Funds Will Be Used

To help get the album out, I am seeking to use crowdfunding to finish it off.

So far, I have covered all the pre-production, hire of musicians, recording and mixing costs myself.

I am asking you to help me fund the final leg of the journey. My crowdfunding target is $2500.
The funds will be used for:

1) Final audio mastering costs
2) Manufacturing of CDs
3) Promotion costs

In return for your support there are many rewards on offer, from pre-purchasing a copy of the album, to booking me for your very own house gig!
