27% From Freedom

Wow!

My Pledgemusic campaign sits at 73%.

Once I hit my target, I get the means to have the CDs and T-Shirts pressed and packaged.

Personally not only can I not wait to see them, the earlier I reach my target, the lower the cut that PledgeMusic take.

So, if ya haven’t pledge but do intend to, take alook now. Some of the exclusives are as little as £8.

Thanks and best wishes,

Billy

Another 5* Review!

5.0 out of 5 stars This was really deep! Beyond the velvet rope, and more intense, March 17, 2014
Borrowed this book from a friend…all I can say is “Wow.”
First, the premise was very intriguing. I mean, how the heck do you get a bunch of wildly famous musicians to do something for someone who’s NOT super famous?
This book was a non-stop ride. I was totally blown away from the get-go, with the opening line. “You‘re looking at a man whose dreams didn‘t come true.” That’s about the most honest and bold statement that I can possibly fathom. Also, I thought it was interesting that the piece was prefaced by a quote from Kerouac. This was a very Beat poet-type book, so it’s highly appropriate.I like that the author is someone who’s lived hard. As Kerouac would say, he definitely “burns like a roman candle” — as a fan of the rockumentary genre, this was definitely my kind of book. In an odd way, it reminded me of Nicki Sixx’s The Heroin Diaries, but without the drugs. Something about the art process, the intention, is similar in these two books. This book is more interesting in certain ways, because the author hasn’t (YET) had the type of wild success that Sixx has enjoyed. We seldom get to hear from people like Billy Franks, people who make a living and who have been playing music their whole lives, but haven’t necessarily gotten together with an uber famous band. It’s a really interesting perspective.Like the author, I also believe in a charmed life. There is nothing negative about this book. I enjoyed the positive energy and the commitment to the creative process. I think it’s a great testament to the author that, as the book went on, I cared less and less about the “results” of the quest and more about the adventures they encountered during the pursuit of this astounding goal. It’s a great life message, reminding one to simply enjoy the ride. Highly recommend.

My Book

 

 

Hard to believe my small self published little book is still moving hearts and minds around the world.

Hardly a day goes by when I don’t get an email or a post somewhere and some other dreamer is telling me that those 200 pages inspired them to continue their pursuit of their own dream in spite of overwhelming odds.

My guess is that it really is something we all share.

We all dare tom dream.

If you haven’t read it yet, go to your local Amazon site and search, A Far Cry from Sunset.

More often than not you can loan a copy, get a sizeable extract or even get a copy for free.

I’m really not interested in taking your money. The cut I get from Amazon is so negligible that I never notice any change in my income because of royalty payments.

I just like the idea of it being out there, ya know?

Stay well, keep on dreaming.

Billy

Right Now - This Is All That Matters…

My friends..

I want to send  A Letter to the Times

I need you to help me write it.

Campaign logo

pledge

I have spent more than a year composing and recording rough demos of the songs that will line up to be the defining album of my career.

Those of you who know me also know my hopes, my struggles and my dreams.

 

For me, it all comes down to this one set of songs.

It’s called A Letter to The Times and I am about to start recording on

Monday August 18th.

 

If I can distill the quintessential quality of all my work spanning 3 decades into this one album I will, on my own terms, have succeeded in every way that that I wanted to from the day I wrote my first song.

 

Wish me luck and follow my adventure here:

With love and very best wishes,

Billy
