FIRE ON THE VINE is set to release on July 30th. We really want that to happen.
WE HIT THE MARK! YOU CAN STILL DONATE AND RECEIVE THE DIGITAL ALBUM BEFORE THE RELEASE DATE!
At the start of the year, I put my foot down. I decided: I’m going to do this. I’m going to make an album.
Almost three years ago, I released the EP Shoes for Men and Beasts. At the time, I intended only to share the songs with friends and family, but it expanded beyond those boundaries. The EP took me farther than I expected, and since its release, new songs have been gathering in the quiver. Enough to make an album.
I’ve been pouring everything into it, wringing myself dry in an attempt to create something worth creating. I’ve shelved academic pursuits. I’ve discarded certain domestic comforts. I’m consumed with this one aim and I’m getting closer. I’ve gotten this far, but I need your help.
Now, my friends, the time has come for a full length. It’s my first full length. And Oh! What a full length it shall be! Trumpets? Of course! Live string section? Check. Banjo, yes! Dulcimer, yes! Stomps! Claps! Mason jars! Bad notes that we left in because that’s cool! Yes and Amen!
It will be pressed to vinyl. An amazing cast of artists and musicians have surrounded me during this process. Friends from all over Seattle are taking part. We’ve spent hundreds of hours in the studio. It's been a good time. We're planning an album release show in July, which will be followed by an early fall tour.
To get this thing mixed, mastered, designed, packaged and promoted, I need to raise some money. The album can’t happen unless I do. I've paid a third of the total cost on my own. I need help getting a hold of the rest.
You probably get the scoop by now--you rustle up some money to throw into the well and I send you something awesome as a means of showing my gratitude. I've detailed the rewards in the column to your right (my left). Take a look! See what catches your eye.
Thank you for anything you can do to propel this project. It shakes and silences me to know that you would give to help realize my album. I’ve pored over these songs for a long time. This is what I’m doing now; this is what I have. My plan is this album. And the album is for you as much as it is for me.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
