Irish singer-songwriter Carol Keogh has launched a campaign on the Irish website Fundit to fund the recording and release of her debut solo album, Mongrel City. Her friend and collaborator Jerry Fish has decided to make his hit single Back to Before, a duet featuring Carol, available for download in support of her campaign. The track will be free to download for the limited period of one week from today.

Back to Before appeared on the 2009 album ‘The Beautiful Untrue’ by Jerry Fish and The Mudbug Club. People who like what they hear can help Carol make her debut album by visiting and pledging to pre-purchase her album and other great rewards. Her Mongrel City campaign ends on Sunday, 9th December.

Carol Keogh has been writing and performing since the mid-90s with bands such as The Plague Monkeys, The Tycho Brahe and Autamata, as well making notable guest appearances on recent albums by Jerry Fish and Sharon Shannon. For the past few years she has been developing the songs for her debut solo album, Mongrel City, many of which relate to her hometown of Dublin, the mongrel city of the album’s title.

On Monday, 15th October 2012, Carol Keogh launched a crowd-sourcing campaign on the Irish website The campaign, if successful, will realise Keogh’s long-held ambition to record her debut album, ‘Mongrel City’, with her backing band The City Fathers. Crowd-sourcing has become an increasingly viable way for artists to fund projects through pre-sales of work and other rewards.

As well as the opportunity to pre-purchase the finished album in several formats, Keogh’s reward packages include handwritten lyrics booklets, tailor-made cover versions, original oil paintings, private performances and acoustic renditions of songs from her back catalogue with previous bands. More information about Carol Keogh, the band and her visual art can be found on her official website.
