Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Stornoway has many places that support artists, and musicians. It has An Lanntair, The Sea Angling Club, The Golf Club, The Woodlands Centre, the Callanish Visitor Centre, and McNeills but what it doesn't have is an actual MUSIC STORE where people can chill out, buy records/cds/cassettes etc., buy instruments or music equipment (yep, it doesn't have a store on the island that sells instruments), and it doesn't have a place where independent artists can just hand their work in without being charged or without them being sent through hoops.
Owlsound are planning to change this. Owlsound are an independent music company based in Stornoway who operate throughout the UK helping bands/solo performers go on tour, we provide live and studio engineering, and help find dedicated musicians to fill in when you need them. Owlsound want to create a new musical hub in the town that'll bring a new something to the already brilliant creative culture up here.
We care about solving this problem, and opening up this hub because we're passionate about art,and feel that there's something missing from Stornoway. Musicians and artists don't have a specific place to call a home, that's what we're going to offer.

About the fundraiser
Isle of Lewis, United Kingdom
Owlsound are a music company based in Stornoway who help independent musicians go on tour, play gigs, record their music or anything else that they need. We're also looking for a base of operations that'll allow us to help even more by giving artists a new place to inhabit.
