Raising money to finish my FIRST DEBUT ALBUM of all original music!
Hey everybody! It’s about that time to finish the long awaited debut album of my originals! This album is going to be a crazy, fun-filled, full-band experience! It’s going to be jam-packed with a lot of great talent from Taylor Barefoot – Barefoot Productions in Brighton, Ma, Joe Merrick – Guilty Dog Records in Hanson, Ma and several other musicians, producers, engineers from Sanctum Sound Studio in Boston.
I’ve been working on this project for over 3 years and so far, it has been quite the journey. It’s pretty amazing watching the bare bones of my songs - written on the acoustic guitar – transform into this great collection of musical madness. I’m super excited about finishing everything up and getting these CD’s into your hott little hands and blaring on your systems ASAP!
In order to make this last part of my journey possible, I’m going to need your help!!! By way of this fantastic Kickstarter.com platform, we can work together and make some magic happen! Here’s the deal…Kickstarter is an ALL-or-NOTHING kind of process. I’ve set a goal and a time in which that goal needs to be reached. If I don’t reach my goal, no $$ changes hands and this CD will remain unfinished. However, with the help of your pledges, I can MEET or EXCEED my goal. After doing so, the fun can continue and creative craziness will result in my VERY FIRST ALBUM!!
Now, some of you may think this goal seems a bit steep…however, every bit of it is necessary. What remains to be done is still a lengthy list. Some of these behind the scene pieces are:
· graphic design work
· copyright fees
· studio time
· studio musicians
· merchandise for incentives
· shipping costs
The list goes on!!!
There are some incentives for the different pledge amounts. Feel free to take a peek at those (listed on the right-hand side of this page) and see which one speaks to you!
I’m looking forward to the day when I can say it’s finally done! It’ll all be thanks to YOU for your continued love and support…and OF COURSE…your generosity!
Without all of you, none of this would be possible. Thank you for helping me to keep my musical dream alive!
