I’m proud to announce that my new EP, the first release to be crowdfunded through Crowdshed, will be launched on the 31st of January – just two weeks time!
Luddite Ballads is an acoustic release, and includes the political anthem (if I can call it that!) ‘A Movement and a Reason’, as well as the title track ‘The Ballad of a New Luddite’, John Martyn’s epic ‘I Don’t Want to Know’, and an instrumental piece ‘Old Friends’. Hope you like it.
You can now sign up to pre-order it on BandCamp! Make sure to grab a copy for just £3 (£5 for a print copy) – https://josiahmortimer.bandcamp.com/album/luddite-ballads-ep-pre-order
It’s being released through York-based independent record label Rack Mount Records.
Here’s how Luddite Ballads has been described:
“Combining mellow sounds with defiant sentiment, Josiah Mortimer’s debut EP Luddite Ballads is a breakthrough collection of anthems for a disenchanted generation. Bound by masterful guitar and crisp vocals, Mortimer’s first offering paves the way for a new era of radical acoustic music.”
Luddite Ballads will be out on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all the major online distributors (yes, I get the irony) at the end of the month.
Over £3,000 was made to master, print, distribute, and promote the EP. Thanks to everyone who contributed to make it happen!
Let me know what you think when it’s out. Fingers crossed and thanks for the support!
