Last chance to donate for the London to Brighton Bike Ride, introducing Bob Axell to the JabunAudio Partners list, some minor updates + no update next week due to exciting times!
It's been a busy week doing some final prep for this weekend (more on that later) and working on promotional things. Not a lot to report, but still some things I'd like to share. Lets get right to it!
Firstly, it's less than 3 days until the London to Brighton 54 mile Bike Ride, which I'll be cycling this year in order to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Legs are toned, carbs have been eaten, and after an intense early day of cycling in the pouring rain on Sunday, I'm feeling just about ready to tackle the challenge! It's gonna be tough, but it's all for a good cause! Speaking of which, there's still some time left to donate if you can and the cause could still do with your generosity. Since last week's announcement, people have raised £30 of my £100 goal! Thanks so much to everyone who's helped so far, and lets work hard to get some more pennies in the bucket for Sunday! You can make a donation on the web via the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/NickStanding Thanks as always for the support, I'll be warming up my muscles for Sunday!
Next on this week's news, Bob Axell has finally been added to the JabunAudio Partners List, and it's been well overdue! I've known Bob since 2013 when we worked on our nu metal collaboration "Cyberdevil's Back" after meeting through Newgrounds, and it's been a trilling collaborative ride ever since! This independent lyricist, rapper and writer, carries a positive attitude and an infectious passion for all things creative. Leaving civilized life to traverse the northern wilds of Sweden every summer, Bob spends his time writing, rhyming, and designing websites, occasionally delving into photography, animation, and film as well. With an affinity for nature and food, and a yearning to change the world, he strives to be acclaimed as both an artist and author. Our most recent collaboration was “Head Above Water” from the 2016 Better Than The Book album “Two Years On”, and I highly recommend you check him out on his official website, personal blog and lyrical service. Hope to be collaborating with you soon Bob, and for a dose of Nostalgia and nu metal, have a listen to our first track together:
There's not actually a lot left to report this week. Better Than The Book has a new streaming location at HearThis if you're interested, but other than that, it's been pretty quiet or busy with other maintenance / background things. There'll be no update next week (though I may make a small Facebook post) either becaaaause... I'm going to NORWAY! It'll be my first holiday abroad since I started JabunAudio so I'm very much looking forward to it! Not only that, but as if my legs haven't taken enough punishment already this month, I'll be going on an expedition with a huge chunk of my family to climb the tallest mountain in Northern Europe! Should be fun, and I've no idea what to expect, but I'll be back at the end of the month to report!
That's it for this week. Hope you all have a good time until we next meet, and please if you can, head over to the British Heart Foundation to show your generosity. See y'all in two week, hope you have a good one, and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio. Take care!
