The official launch of This is the Sound of Adamsdown will take place on Friday 2nd March, 7pm, at Hungry Planet on Clifton Street. We’re hoping to have a few live performances and refreshments will be available.

Following the launch we’ll be organising a full-on promotion to ensure this fantastic CD gets the audience it deserves and puts Adamsdown, Cardiff on the map – just as Adamsdown Song received fan messages from all over the world.

Anyone wanting to review the album is welcome to pick one up at the launch. All performers, their friends and families, as well as anyone from the media interested in the CD, or indeed anyone interested in promoting it or getting involved in any way, are welcome to attend.

We’re particularly interested in meeting anyone interested in making videos of the songs, or shops and stalls interested in selling it. Shops keep £2 of the £5 selling price and can get the CD sale or return.

All profits from the CD will go to a fund for future creative projects in Adamsdown.

This is the Sound of Adamsdown is already for sale at Hungry Planet and is now available for download at Amazon.

Keep spreading the word! Mentions and links on social media are invaluable.

CDs here at last!

The first batch of This is the Sound of Adamsdown have now arrived and are looking good! Anyone wanting to buy a copy or take some to sell should ring (029) 20213053 or use the email address to the left. The price is just £5: sellers keep £1, or in the case of shops, £2. Once costs have been met all profits go to future community music projects.

The CD should be available online shortly: since the price is set by retailers this is likely to be a little more than the physical CD, although you will be able to download individual tracks.

A launch event is planned shortly.

CD in production

This is the Sound of Adamsdown is now in production and also submitted to I-Tunes, Amazon, Spotify etc where all being well it should appear within a fortnight. I-Tunes does not allow compilations but it will hopefully be clear that all tracks on the CD are the product of the same two musicians, with a range of featured vocalists.

With the completion of the last track, Crystal Moment, a rethink of the track order became necessary, and the result can be seen in the track listing on the back of the CD. Hopefully everyone will be happy with this – the track listing is not a top ten!

What is clear from the reactions of everyone who’ve heard the album is that we have a pretty good product. We’ll be organising its promotion shortly, and if anyone is interested in helping with this, do get in touch.
