Life is like a movie. Every movie has a soundtrack. Help us create the soundtrack set to the story of our lives.
Every life tells a story. Help us tell both sides.
Life is full of ups and downs. Our days can take drastic turns in an instant, changing everything we know to be normal. Through every season of life, through every drought or storm we face, through every high and low, one thing remains constant - Jesus. Though we may rise and fall, He is our Rock and our Shelter. But for all the times we lift our hands to praise Him... there are times that we can hold tight to the empty desires of life. The reason He commanded us to "deny ourselves" was because He knew it was going to be a war we would have to wage. The war of light and darkness. The war of us against ourselves. The "Me Against Me" album by the Micah Tyler Band will set music to the battles we face against selfishness, pride, and weakness in the effort to make Jesus the actual Lord of our lives!
Who is the Micah Tyler Band?
The Micah Tyler Band is a Christian Soul/Folk/Pop band from Southeast TX that's been traveling full-time since February of 2011. They recorded their first album, "Better," in Nashville back in May of 2010 which was released in August of 2010. Better has opened up many doors to build a cool local following in their area and has garnered the attention and respect of both their peers and industry minds.
The Micah Tyler Band are made up of Micah Tyler (Lead Vocals/Acoustic Guitar), Haley Warren (Background Vocals/Occasional Tamborine), Will Gallagher (Keys), Caleb Johnson (Bass), and Daniel Begnaud (Drums/Percussion).
Why use Kickstarter to fund the "Me Against Me" project?
We have been praying and searching for a way to make this album since this past spring. We've researched for a while now and Kickstarter's reputation is incredible. There is no other program that we have found that is more devoted to the backing of the projects and the artists than this site!
Why a new album?
Their first album, "Better," was recorded in a demo studio in Nashville and cut every corner possible to keep the cost down, including NOT having the album mastered, doing the entire 8 song disc in less than 30 hours, and having studio musicians play and not using the actual Micah Tyler "Band" to play the instruments.
Since recording the first record and traveling all of 2011, they have redeveloped, rewritten some of their old songs and penned some great new ones, including a few co-writes with "Dove Award-Winning" songwriter, Jennie Lee Riddle (writer of "Revelation Song")!
The bottom line?
The Micah Tyler Band needs your help recording a full album of 13 tracks in May of 2012! The new album will have a blend of genres and styles of Soul, Folk, and Pop-Rock. We've got lot's of cool things to give away and we want you to be a part of this amazing oppurtunity.
This is OUR story - all of us...
