Singer/songwriter/guitarist Ben Ottewell, best known as one of three lead vocalists in the British rock band Gomez, has launched a crowdfunding campaign through IndieGoGo.com to raise funds to record and release his second solo album Rattlebag.
View the campaign on the singer's indiegogo page.
Watch a clip of Ben playing the first song written for the album, "Patience & Rosaries," below.
See if that inspires you to donate. It's worth it, we promise.
Rattlebag will feature 11 new Ottewell songs, written over the last 18 months. The follow-up to his folky, 2011 solo debut Shapes & Shadows, Rattlebag will feature "more of a blues influence, probably more shouting and more guitar solos," Ottewell says.
Shouting and solos? Sign us up, Ben!
While Gomez is a three-singer band, Ottewell's powerful tenor has graced many fan favorites, from early songs like "Get Miles" and "Revolutionary Kind" to the more recent singles "How We Operate" and "See the World."
The campaign runs through December 12, so you have plenty of time to support this amazing artist.
