Only 3 days to go!!!


On Friday at midnight our fundraising campaign for our 6th record, English Dream, will end. If you're considering supporting the project, this is the time!


Here's the link:


Please note that it's a flexible funding campaign. We will receive whatever is donated even if we don't reach our target. Several patrons have already pledged money towards the record outside of the indiegogo campaign. So we have more than double what we've raised on the website. But we still have a long way to go! We still need to cover the manufacturing costs. And even a little bit of money towards a publicity budget could make a big difference. So these last few days are critical.

A huge thank you to so many friends and fans who have already donated so generously this time around. Each donation and show of support means the world to us whether it be $10 for an advance download or $500 for an original watercolor by Maria Eugenia.


Who is Maria Eugenia you may ask? She is a remarkable Brazilian artist who lives in Sao Paolo. A fan of the band without ever having seen us live, she made two beautiful illustrated music videos of Spottiswoode songs. To our amazement, she came to New York this month to see our 15th anniversary concert and then offered to donate some of the original illustrations she used for the videos towards our fundraising campaign. We love her! She has also promised to make larger prints for those who might prefer them. You can peruse over twenty of her available illustrations here: 


There are many other rewards offered: signed CDs, liner credits, posters, a print of the New Yorker illustration of the band, artwork by our trumpeter Kevin Cordt, an exclusive album of photos from our infamous wedding, house concerts, commissioned songs and more.


Please chip in if you can. We'd be thrilled if you simply shared the link with your friends.


Thanks so much for helping us make our music.


Rock and Roll!

"Nothing short of transportive."  Steve LaBate, Paste Magazine

"Not only one of the best albums of 2011 but one of the best of the decade." (Wild Goosechase Expedition)  Lucid Culture

"Nothing short of remarkable and after a dozen or more spins guaranteed on my year-end list of favorite albums.” (Wild Goosechase Expedition)  Jeffrey Sisk, In Tune

"Spottiswoode is a musical tightrope walker, hovering between styles without a safety net. A wordsmith with an immaculate sense of timing, this set of his songs can stand up against Randy Newman and open the ears of fans of Rufus Wainwright." (Piano 45)  Here Comes The Flood

"New York-based septet Spottiswoode & His Enemies is a swirling cocktail of indie-rock, folk, country and even big band music. The real entertainment, however, lies in the songs and their clever arrangements." (That's What I Like)  WNYC, Soundcheck with John Schaefer
