With my entire back catalogue of music now uploaded and archived on Patreon, there will no longer be regular monthly music rewards, but I'll be aiming to release at least 1 Album / EP a year and will continue to post monthly updates on what I've been up to and project progress as well as the monthly behind the scenes DEMOlition Pigeon rewards for the $10+ patrons starting August 2022 (next month). More Better Than The Book will be coming next as I'm busy recording/producing the project's 3rd album, but until the next post and then, thanks so much for supporting Better Than The Book, Jabun and my various music projects on Patreon, and I hope you enjoy the music (and articles) above and to come!


Onto some monthly updates, it's been a super hectic one this time with a fair few trips away as well as some unfortunate time off ill. There's been lots of (going to) gigs with an amazing trip to see Gorillaz (as well as Dreamcatcher and a whole load of other bands), Suzanne Ciani in Quadrophonic (an amazing experience), and finally the Red Hot Chilli Peppers (supported by Thundercat) for a fun birthday/retirement celebration for my Dad! Fantastic musicianship all around and those former 2 headliners especially have been a huge influence on my Jabun work, with RHCP's Flea being a huge inspiration to my bass playing too!


Meanwhile between those fun days out, I finally got the dreaded Covid which was no fun at all, put me out of it for about a week and has left me with some extended health difficulties even after "recovery", all of which very much hindered my goals for the month... When I was working however, I've been back to arranging horns for the upcoming Better Than The Book projects, as well as recording a few ambient Jabun jams and being back to working on some not-sure-if-secret-but-I-don't-think-so animation audio work for the biggest animation job I've had yet! Very exciting times there and I can't wait to show you when the time comes later this year!


Speaking of upcoming projects, with my music backcatalogue all out now, I thought I'd share an update on what's in the pipeline to come and where it's at. I'm a bit swamped with freelance and other non-audio work at the moment, but in terms of personal projects when I have the time to persue them, the next one I'm aiming for is as you probably already know Better Than The Book's next album project. There's a 10 track ~35+ minute album in the works + a 4 track ~13+ minute bonus EP and instrumental versions of each, and all of these are just awaiting the horn parts, vocals and a couple of extra things + the mixing and production, artwork etc... Unfortunately things are going rather slow at the moment, and the illness with Covid has really done a number on my voice and lungs so I'll need to really train up to get back to full health there (majorly sucky). I'm aiming to release the first of these 4 grouped BTTB projects at some point next year (the 10 track main album), then releasing the others at (probably) 6 month intervals to space things out. There's certainly a lot of BTTB to share and I'm really looking forward to getting it out into the world!


On top of that, there's still over 70 minutes of Jabun demos as well as a few more live jams to share, though that's much less structured at the moment. I'll aim to get back to that after the Better Than The Book projects, though I'm very sure it's all going to keep me very busy on top of freelance work and non-audio work. All in all, lots of stuff in the pipeline though unfortunately no concrete ETAs just yet, but I'll keep you all updated with what's going on each month and if you're a $10 patron, you'll have demos and behind the scenes peeks too.


In terms of other news this month, Inner Space was featured on the Tank Tribune No.61's phonograph playlist on Newgrounds! Thanks as always for sharing the music TTT and keep up the great work!

That about wraps things up for this post. I'll be back in August for the usual Patreon reward posts (apart from there being no new monthly music), but until then I hope you have an amazing July to come and thanks as always for supporting my music however you can! Take care and I can't wait to show you what I've been working on!
