Irish guitar legend Bernie Tormé announced on Friday that he was mounting his third consecutive campaign to release new music ('Dublin Cowboy' three cd package) via the PledgeMusic platform and the full target was reached just under nine hours later.

Bernie said about this outstanding result: "100%! What can I say! In eight hours and 45 minutes! Jeeez!! Thank you ALL from the bottom of my jaded Dublin heart! I better get to work now! I love you all!"

'Dublin Cowboy' is an ambitious three CD set that includes an electric studio album, an acoustic album, and a live set - a big bargain in light of the fact that Bernie's first two PledgeMusic projects were such complete successes for both the fans and the man.

As most know, Tormé made his bones over the years as an electrifying guitarist in the classic Gillan line-ups, and with his famed tour of duty with Ozzy Osbourne in the immediate and tragic aftermath of Randy Rhoads' death, as well as his own very successful solo career and the band, Tormé.

Bernie said about the package before the campaign started: "I'm so psyched to be doing my third crowd-funded album on PledgeMusic, and in celebration of number three it's also a triple album. Triple offender! Titled 'Dublin Cowboy' because that's what I am, it's going to be a studio album, acoustic album, and a live album altogether in a dinky little slip-box.

"It's a totally new experience for me, and that's the best thing about it! It'll be released in March 2017, and we'll be rocking it live throughout the UK in April 2017. Can't wait!"
