In May 2012, The JoyFM, one of the largest Christian radio stations in Florida, held their CellPhone Superstar competition.Thanks to many of you 45,000 votes were made and I won! The prize for winning was one fully produced, mastered and engineered song from Inertia Sound Studio in Lakeland, Florida. The song turned out incredible thanks to the producer and co-writer, Conrad Johnson. The song will be released to radio on October 3!
I truly enjoyed working with Conrad and the song turned out so well that we have decided to write and create an album together THIS November. I need your $upport to make it happen.
My wife Deanna and I both serve on staff in the local church part-time and travel sharing the gospel through the Word and music the rest of time. At the launch of our traveling ministry, we prayed about having monthly supporters and we felt God leading us to another method. This method is when a big project (like this new album) comes along we would then ask for fans, friends and families to be backers of that specific project. This new album is one of those projects!
I want you to know this... This album will be used to point people to Jesus through music. The book of Psalms is the largest book in the bible and it is essentially, a giant hymnal/song book! I believe music speaks in a mighty way and, when coupled with the Word of God, music can be used to encourage, convict, give hope and ultimately, point to the Lord! This IS what this CD will be used for. And I pray you can tell that just by the first song, "Yahweh."
Here is how the finances to this album breaks down. Each song costs $2,000 to make. This includes co-writing, production, professional musicians and mastering. Artwork costs about $500-$1,000. And to duplicate 1,000 CD'S costs about $1,400. If we raise $11,000 I will make a 6-song EP with the song 'YAHWEH' included. If we raise $20,000 I will make an 11-song full-length album. There are NUMEROUS incentives based on the amount you give so please make sure to check them out! Thank you!!!
Thank you for praying for this album and contributing to it financially. I couldn't have won the competition without you and I can't make this album without you!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest risk is wether or not we can raise the funds. If we do not raise the full amount, every person who contributes will be refunded 100% of the amount given. I truly believe we can reach this goal together.
The only other risk is in the writing process. Writing is arduous and tremendously rewarding. Sounds like an oxymoron, right? We are under a time crunch to get the album finished so the writing is even a bit more tough because of it. You know what though, God is good and sovereign and I am believing and trusting wholeheartedly that God's hand is on this album.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
