its still not ready
ok why well im getting a team together and the date of the album release keeps getting pushed back . after you gave so much i decided i would approach the biz for 3 reasons one people kept on saying you should be everywhere . which i always answered with a angry wanting to do it all by myself (but i understood my speech was just hiding my fears of success and here’s a big truth figuring out im greedy and not want to sharing the cake which makes no sense a cake all to yourself makes you fat and lonely )
i was mixing in canada in montreal last september and a friend said mark people need to hear these songs and if you do it with out help it will get lost in a pile . i heard him and all the people who said the same thing maybe over a 1000 times and so now trying to get a team together is one of the harvests things I've done . and im looking for a manager cause theres to much and im making a mess of it . there is a label interested in germany and canada and thats pushing the release date back :/ to next year its frustrating so very much . but good news videos are being made and the 1st single should come out in 2 months or so ( but hey maybe even that gets pushed back.
so if you have any questions do ask and i will get back to you
thanks again for your support and know you are great for helping and know im doing my best to get it out there so the work thats been done is fruitful

question to the people who backed the project
hi there smiles for you all and a huge thanks again. i would like to ask a question that has been turning around in my very full head your answers will help me very much !!!!!
I've been proposed by a label a contract for another album that i have recorded NOT «i am who i am» NOT THIS ALBUM but another just making sure its clear not all of you speak fluent english so one more time just to make sure I've been proposed a contract but not for «i am who i am »
what does this mean for the project you've backed? well it means it will be delayed and another album that has been finished for the last 2 years will come out before
so my question is will you understand and not go crazy at me?
I've already started working on «i am who i am» and the work continues
so look forward to your feed back its very important to me what you guys have to say on the matter
to all the people that supported the we make it project for the next album"i am who i am" thank you for your trust . i will do my best to make a great album . it has already been started and hopefully will be finished by the april if all goes well
the money that you've gave will be used wisely
thank you all !!! and much love to you and happy thoughts!!
thanks to all!! nearly there
guys im very touched by all the support that has been given before i started the we make it i wasn't sure what it would feel like to have peoples support and it makes me want to work so hard on it
i will do my best that is for sure!!!! the good news is the files that were locked in my dear friend james computer has be unlocked and will be sent james best friend julian by next week my great friend seb has stepped up and offered to finish the album and we have already started the session i think this is going to be a double album :)
to you all love ,light, and happy thoughts for you
rock on :)

james was the engineer I've been working with on this album we had started out just testing and then it was quickly seen that we got on really well and worked really well together . he was a driving force behind organising my messy ways he will be great missed and this album will be dedicated to him and family rest in peace my dear dear friend
