I would like to say how much enjoyment it gave me contributing in some small way to the making of Fairchildren through the Kickstarter project. I've never backed an artist before but I'm sure others will agree that it made us feel part of the production. The album was fantastic - great work OTT! On that subject, I wanted to ask if you think that crowd/fan-funding is the way forward for many musicians now?

It was a fantastic experience for me and I'm glad that transferred to you too. I think it is the future of independent music.

It keeps our art out of the hands of the soulless bean-counters at record companies and it enables a direct connection between everyone involved. I hugely enjoyed every aspect of it - even hand-signing 1000 CDs to each individual recipient - and I will definitely do it again.
