Josh Houseman

<p> Simply put, <strong>Josh Houseman </strong>travels the world, discovering, and writing and performing<strong> original Folk songs.</strong></p> <p> After several concerts in Australia and years of playing concerts in his native USA he has settled<strong> in France,</strong> where he lives and plays most of the year. </p> <p> Throughout his travels the Californian singer songwriter has developed a style that is all his own, the guitar percussive and precise, the voice spiritual but aggressive, the text poetic and surreal, all combining to create a personal rhythmic journey. In France he continues to write and perform new songs all the while further developing his musical universe.</p> <p> The next stage of the process<strong> is the recording of a professional album thanks to your contributions!</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> To discover Josh's universe, click on the video and "Enjoy."  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/cCMbAqk4LWQ?wmode=opaque&amp;fs=1&amp;feature=oembed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> "<strong>Rabbit Hole</strong>" - album Sorstoowandher - 2010:</p> <p>  <iframe frameborder="no" height="166" src="http://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F55469244&amp;show_artwork=true&amp;maxwidth=900" width="500"></iframe>   </p> <p> "<strong>Dark Gold</strong>" - album Sorstoowandher - 2010:  </p> <p> <iframe frameborder="no" height="166" src="http://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F24909888&amp;show_artwork=true&amp;maxwidth=900" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> "<strong>From Far Banks</strong>" - album Kidding In The Caravan - 2008:</p> <p> <iframe frameborder="no" height="166" src="http://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F24903995&amp;show_artwork=true&amp;maxwidth=900" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>   "<strong>All Across The Morning</strong>" - album Runner - 2009:  </p> <p> <iframe frameborder="no" height="166" src="http://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F53384377&amp;show_artwork=true&amp;maxwidth=900" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>  </p>

Allocation of funds

<p> The collection of 3500€ will be put towards the recording of an album<a href="http://www.malambo.fr/" target="_blank"> at Malambo, a professional recording studio</a>. The recording and mixing of the album " <strong>BEFORE YOU WERE THINKING </strong>" is planned for April 2013.</p> <p> If we are able to attain 5500€, we'll be able to further the process by mastering and pressing 500 CDS!</p> <p> To finish, if the collection reaches 6000€, we'll be able to organize a promotion concert in June 2013 in a special and intimate place, <a href="http://doublelune.com/lcdh/blog/participer/tac/" target="_blank">TAC (Territoire Art et Création) in Bois Colombes</a>, France near Paris.</p> <p> The Malambo recording studio has been following Josh's project and already has a plan in place to help diminish the expenses of recording, but we will still need your support to produce a high quality album. Josh's music already pleases a large number of people, but the recording of a professional album would allow him to develop his music and to catch the attention of professionals who could provide many interesting opportunities.  </p>
