I'm going to record my first album, called Stations. This has been a longtime dream of mine and I hope that you will join me in this.
Ever since I was a kid, I've dreamed about the day when I'd be able to record my own album. I've been playing piano since I was five years old and writing my own songs since I was in high school. As much as I've always wanted to record an album, I always had a laundry list of excuses (i.e. it's too expensive, I don't have the time), but I'm ready to give this project the green light. And I'm really excited for it!
Over the last few years, I've been in a really creative mindset and I'm really, really excited to get the ideas that have been in my head out onto a record. Many of you may have heard some demos that I've released, and while they are fine, they are merely demos. This campaign will allow me to professionally record a full-length album. I'm definitely contributing to the project but I can't do it all by myself, so that's where you come in.
For those of you not familiar with Kickstarter, it's a simple concept: I set a fundraising goal, and I don't get any of the money (and you don't get charged for your contribution) unless my goal is reached. I'm asking for $5,000, even though this project will cost closer to $10,000 (recording, mixing, mastering, promotional material, CD duplication, artwork, etc.). In other words, even if I've reached my goal of $5,000, please keep giving! On the page, you will see a list of giving incentives. I'll be leaving regular updates for everyone anyway throughout the process, but some of you will get some extra goodies for your contribution.
I think it's important that you know how much I really, really believe in this project and how ready I am to finally get it off the ground. I cannot thank you enough for your willingness to participate with me and this project!
