My latest release, Condor Leader takes flight one week today!
A massive thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered my 5-star release through my Bandcamp page. The digital download will be available for the foreseeable future but, there’s only 100 of the Limited Edition signed CDs and they’re already half gone! If you want one, then you’d better be quick!
The countdown is on. Three weeks today Condor Leader, my upcoming mini-album that PlanetMosh gave 5-stars, will be released!
I’m getting rather excited about it. Can you tell? The glowing feedback that I’ve received so far has really got me buzzing. I can’t believe that this little album that I recorded on a 13 year-old computer, running obsolete software has been so well received by critics.
It’s a testament to the fact that anyone can make good music from their own bedroom, without having the huge overheads of recording in a studio. If I can do it, then so can you too!
If you’d like to hear what all the fuss is about, then you can listen to the lead track “Whisky Man” now on my Bandcamp page. You’ll also be able to pre-order it for £5 from here too. Better still, for £10 why not bag yourself a hand-numbered, Limited Edition CD? It also comes with a digital download that will be available from the moment Condor Leader is released on 23rd July. Be quick though, as they’re already half gone!
Dazzle Rebel is not a rebel without a cause but with one due to the songwriting suss of Condor Leader.
Dennis Jarman – PlanetMosh
The first review for my upcoming release, Condor Leader is in and it’s a 5-Star review!
Dennis Jarman of PlanetMosh waxed lyrical about Condor Leader in the first review of Condor Leader. Stating that “Whisky Man has a feel good groove that flows with a cool as f**k vibe that brings to mind the Smooth era of Santana”.
His enthusiasm spills over to ‘Stop The Silence’ and then calls me out for my main influence on ‘Blood Red Valentine’ stating “‘Blood Red Valentine’ throbs on bass lines like ‘Psycho Killer”. Guilty as charged, sorry-not-sorry!
‘Swan Song’ and ‘Back Home and Sober’ get glowing praise before he rounds off the review with title track ‘Condor’, stating “the spotlight is stolen by an earworm guitar solo”. Something that I have to admit that I’m rather proud of, as I do try to make my guitar solos memorable.
‘Whiskey Man’ has a feel good groove that flows with a cool as f**k vibe that brings to mind the Smooth era of Santana.
Condor Leader is available to pre-order now from www.dazzlerebel.bandcamp.com with the digital version available for £5 and a hand-numbered, Limited Edition CD, which also comes with a digital copy for £10. It will be released on 23rd July 2021 on all major digital platforms. If you’re on Spotify you can pre-save Condor Leader now by clicking this link https://show.co/sIH7b26.
Be one of only a hundred and bag yourself one of my Limited Edition Condor Leader CDs!
There’s been a very special parcel delivered to Dazzle Rebel HQ. My first AND ONLY batch of Limited Edition Condor Leader CDs!
What’s more, they are already selling FAST! I’m so blessed to have such good friends and fans. Thank you.
If you’ve not bagged yours yet then you can pre-order now from Bandcamp where £10+pp will get you both a one of only one hundred, individually numbered and signed CD AND a digital copy all of your own (because, let’s face it, how many of us have a CD player handy these days, huh)? So, you can keep your mint, Limited Edition CD but still play the album in full.
The CD will begin shipping in time to hopefully reach you by the release date on 23rd July 2021. Don’t worry if the CD doesn’t reach you in time, as the digital version will be available for you to download on this date anyway.
If you’d prefer the digital copy only, then that is also available for just £5 from Bandcamp too. If you’d prefer to stream it on Spotify then you can pre-save it now here. The digital worldwide release for the album is 23rd July but, if you order from Bandcamp, you’ll get track 1 “Whisky Man” immediately as a thank you.
As you can see below, I have been busy with a sharpie individually numbering and signing all one hundred copies!
If you would like any special message added, please get in touch via one of my social media platforms, once you have placed your order (ideally Facebook or Instagram, as I’m more active there). I’ll do my best to accommodate your request.
I really, really appreciate your enthusiasm over this release. You really are amazing!
Yes, that is right. I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at getting a little extra funding through Patreon.
For now, this will be for hardcore supporters of my work only. This is because there’s currently no added content or bonus features. All you get is your name added to the end of my YouTube vlogs and my eternal gratitude! That said, it only costs £1 per month, so that’s not a bad price to pay for your name on screen, really.
Speaking of videos, there are more coming soon. Honestly! I’ve been frantically busy with loads of things, but I’ve been recording lots of footage behind the scenes. I’m very nearly to start editing this footage, so once the content comes, it will come fast and regular!
Expect more behind the scenes music videos, acoustic performances and plenty of motorcycle content too. Once the world returns to some kind of normality where we can meet up again, I am hoping to start a new music and motorcycles series too. This is when I meet other motorcycle enthusiasts who have something to say about music too. If you’d like to be part of that, then drop me a line below and we’ll see if we can arrange something soon.
Back to Patreon, though. I do intend to add extra tiers at some point in the future. I’ll be giving you plenty of incentive to upgrade too, with lots of added features above the “Rebel Heart” entry membership. That’s all in the future, though. Once I’ve had chance to get rolling with making more content! ALL of the money I make in Patreon will go directly into funding more creative content. The more money I make, the more I’ll have to spend on upgrading my equipment for music and video making.
So, if you fancy helping me out, join my Patreon now! If you join before the end of July then you’ll even get a special thank you video all to yourself! What’s more, if you’re one of the first 10 patrons I’ll even send you a personal, handwritten letter thanking you (just remember to include a postal address when signing up)!
You can pre-order both the digital downloads and a very limited edition CD (only 100 copies) that’s individually numbered and signed by me! If you order the physical CD you will automatically also receive the digital download.
Once the order is placed you will receive a digital copy of the lead track “Whisky Man” immediately as a thank you. The album will be released on 23rd July and will also be available on all major streaming services from this date. If you ordered the physical CD I will be shipping these out so that, hopefully, you’ll receive them by 23rd July. Just remember to post a photo of your signed, numbered copy to social media and tag me in it!
Have a great weekend folks and thank you for your continued support, it really does mean a lot!
