Meet Our Producer, Nate Sabin!
I sat down the other day and spoke with Nate Sabin, a great friend who's not only producing this new album, but is also a backer, like you. He shares some insights about why it makes sense to support music we love which I thought you'd like to hear. Much of it you know already--you're backing this project, after all!--but he articulates it in a way that makes sense and sheds light on how some of the money is spent.
And on that note.....we're about $2500 away from our goal, (!!!) and if you know folks who you think would like my music, but might be "on the fence" about the whole Kickstarter thing, this would be a great video to share with them. You can share it easily from YouTube straight to your Facebook wall as well, and any way you spread the word is helping, so THANK YOU for that!
Sorry for the bad sound quality--hopefully the close captions will help. If you click the lower right corner of the screen you can watch it in full screen mode.
I'll be in touch again soon.....5 days and counting!
