A brand new album by Cole Roe featuring 8 new original songs.
The songs for my new album, "First" are all written and ready to go! I'm very excited to head to the studio this winter to record them all. This kickstarter campaign will help raise the money to pay for studio time, CD duplication, and help pay for other musicians who will be playing on the album. I plan on recording at Schaefer Sound Productions in Raleigh, NC. This is where I recorded my first single from the album, "Tailgate Season" (available for free from my website, www.coleroe.com ) and I think it turned out very nicely!
I've got 7 other songs ready to be recorded, but if I exceed my goal by a decent amount, I will add 1 or 2 songs to the track list depending on how much studio time I can get.
Lastly, I would just like to say thank you to all my friends, family, and fans who have supported me and my music over the years. It means the world to me that I can do what I love to do and that it brings joy to others. I'm so excited for you all to hear this new album and I can't wait to share it with you!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As far as the recording itself, there really aren't too many risks or challenges involved. I hope to record the next album with Mike Schaefer at Schaefer Sound Productions in Raleigh, and he's an absolute pro. The other musicians that I'll have play with me on the album are also top knotch, so other than just getting our schedules lined up I don't really see there being a problem in the studio.
The biggest challenge I will be facing is what happens after the record gets completed. The number of people who actually buy CD's is rapidly declining, so trying to get people to buy mine is going to be tough. There is also going to be the challenge of putting together a tour to promote the album once it comes out. Reaching out to venues all over the east coast, trying to attach myself as an opening act for more popular artists, as well as the logistics of travelling between one place to the next pose the biggest challenges for me.
