About Me

The Greg Foat band have been jamming for many years and they hit the big time in 2011 with the album  "Dark Is The Sun" (2011).   Their label - legendary Jazzman Records - had  their finger firmly on the pulse.   The critically  acclaimed album was rated among the best Jazz albums of 2011 at the  Gilles Peterson's  Worldwide Awards, scored 5th in the BBC's Worldwide Awards 2011, was in the iTunes Top 10 Jazz album chart and was mentioned on several occasions  in The NME.

How the funds will help my music

I have just finished my 6th Album which will be released in spring of next year.   This is a new side project entitled  'The Honey Bears'.  It is somewhat different  from previous albums in that it will be quite ambient and experimental in nature.   It is a collaboration between Warren Hampshire of The Bees and myself. 

 

We will be recording at the excellent Mattias Glava studio in Gothenburg, Sweden, which has all sorts of incredible vintage analogue equipment.   Mattias has produced hundreds of amazing albums for many bands including 'Soundtrack Of Our Lives', 'Dungen' and 'Hawkan Hellstrom'. 

 

The funds raised from this crowdfunding campaign will enable us to  record and produce the album.  This special album will be pressed up on 180gm vinyl, in a limited run of only one thousand hand numbered LPs.
