A Message From Eon Sinclair

The first recording that Bedouin Soundclash ever did wasn't on a computer. It was to a cassette on a Fostex 4-track recorder, it meant we could only record 4 things at a time. If any of us made a mistake, we had to rewind the tape and find the spot, and record it again until it was right. And when we had the song done, we then uploaded to our desktop computers to share.

Since then, I've been fortunate to have recorded in many real studios, in Toronto, Vancouver, LA, Woodstock, Liverpool, London. And no matter how old or vintage the gear is, it always ends up being recorded to a computer.

Now, I record whenever I want using programs on my laptop. I email to generate business and use social media to interact with fans. I can design a quick poster or record a song and share it immediately. I even leave my vinyl records at home now and use my computer to DJ for convenience.

Not having a computer these days has become an inconvenience. I'm going to remember what that feels like on December 4th this year, and I ask for your support in helping Sky's the Limit to raise money for youths in need that WILL shine with the luxury of a laptop that many of us take for granted.

Watch the video! A reality in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2014.

Thanks in advance! I will be reporting how my day is different to let you know how tough it can be.
