Beautiful video...and filmed at Hattie's London gig at The Pheasantry in King's Road. It's great to see that the pledging has now reached two thirds of the target!

I love 'To the Bone' - the new song and video that Hattie has shared. I see her 'Pledge fund' (ie pre buying her CD in advance - and any other 'goodies' you fancy) has reached 70% of what she needs to make her album of new songs. Her pledge fund - http://www.pledgemusic.com/hattie-webb-to-the-bone says that 305 friends / fans have 'pledged.' But The Webb Sisters have over 11.000 'likes' on their Facebook. Hattie has 1500 or so on her new Facebook Hattie Webb. And Hattie (and Charley) performed to millions of friends on the LC Tour. Sister Charley is enthusing greatly about Hattie's solo project - but 305 'pledges' (as much as I am sure Hattie is very grateful) is a low number. Hattie's pledge site says there are 6 days to go to raise the final 30%. It would be so easy if just a few more LC fans supported Hattie. John Etherington (in his super interview) told us that the Harp Hattie is using on her album (and video) was a gift from Leonard to Hattie. Come on Cohenites !

Hattie's pledge report now shows 74 % and 17 days left, so the period has been extended!

The obvious reply is that those forum users are Leonard Cohen fans, not necessarily Hattie Webb fans.

I don't know John. I've never heard any of Hattie's solo stuff.

I think that is a very fair answer. I do wish Hattie all the best but the one person who could easily offer the whole pledge, hasn't, or have I missed something?
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2017 and fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Hi Vicomte, Pledge Music seems to be a means by which many indie artists involve their followers in the process of the album being made, and includes giving them tasters, updates etc. It has to be a good thing, if it means the artist gets the majority of money for their work, rather than vast corporations such as Amazon. All good things, John E

It's very wrong to challenge or 'assume' anyone's personal possible financial contribution. Apparently Hattie's big harp used for her Pledge video - and up coming recording - was a special gift from Leonard. Harps are expensive - perhaps costing more than the whole 'Pledge' fund? This says enough about Leonard's generosity and feeling for the whole band family. They seemed to be a very close 'family' - and Leonard has shown repeatedly that - without his band family with him - he would probably not have toured. It's a rare situation - led by Leonard's humility and generosity - totally different to most 'hired guns' and their 'band leader.' Anyway - I am sure - looking at Hattie's Pledge fund video - that something very special is in the works. The 'free' tit bits, free songs, hand made by Hattie christmas card surprises to 'Pledgers' all seem to be much appreciated in comments on Hattie Webb's (and The Webb Sisters) Facebook.
Hattie certainly seems most appreciative in her efforts and comments to friends and fans. And this is before we receive her undoubted fantastic new recordings.

Meh. There likely hasn't been 500 different people who've spent appreciable time on this forum since Dec 16 when the interview was posted. 341 is not a bad number, considering.
