Dave McPherson asks fans to support his new album

InMe singer Dave McPherson is offering fans the chance to buy answerphone messages and house gigs from him to help fund his new solo album.

The frontman, who has been making solo material since 2007, is recording an album under the name The Hardship Diaries, and is offering fans the chance to contribute to the process in exchange for gifts.

He is offering fans the chance to buy an answerphone message from him for £20, to have a song written about them for £150 and to play at their house parties for £500.

Fans can also buy VIP gig packages for McPherson‘s forthcoming tour (see below), some of which cost £150 and include dinner, drinks and being taken to and from the gig. Fans must live within a 15 mile radius of the venue to qualify though.

McPherson is selling the gifts through his Pledge Music page,, and has said he will continue to make new gifts available in the coming weeks.
