Highly acclaimed guitarist Matthew Yeakley seeks funding to record his adventurous quintet record
The Matthew Yeakley Group
Why am I writing you today? This letter is a call to arms.
As many of you may know, I have been in the process of trying to get an album recorded for some time now, and have been writing for that eventual album for even longer. Well the time is now, I have all of my ducks in a row to make this album a reality. I have the studio and engineer lined up. I have the amazing cast of musicians lined up. I have a fantastic artist lined up to do the art work. I have duplication services ready, and waiting patiently. I even have radio and online media outlets ready to broadcast the album once it's finished. I have everything mapped out to a timeline that puts this album done in one month, once I tip that first domino. The only thing I don't have together is the funding necessary to start this chain reaction.
That's where you come in.
I've started a kickstarter campaign to ask for help from my family, friends, and fans. "No man is an island", "It takes a village to raise a child (make this album...)" If I try to do this on my own its going to take another several years. I can't wait that long, I can't let more time pass, I must strike while the iron is hot. If you choose to make yourself an active participant in the making of this album, I will forever be in your debt. Think of it as pre-ordering the album... Everyone who helps contribute will get a copy of the album once it's done.
I know I probably bug you a lot on facebook, or twitter, or chess.com, to come out to the gigs I do. This is lightyears more important to me, and I truly hope you will help me realize a project that I have been writing and working towards for years.
