CCM artist, 33Miles, will be recording their new project as a 'live' night of worship in Spring 2012.
33Miles (33milesonline.com) has been a group for over six years now. We have had the great privilege of traveling the country and sharing the Gospel through music, hearing story after story how God uses the music of 33 to inspire, encourage, and challenge people in their "faith walk" with Jesus Christ. It's truly humbling how God took two guys, in two different walks of life, and brought us together to bless His name through songs like "What Could Be Better", "One Life to Love", "Arms that Hold the Universe", and many more. What's also amazing to us is that you, our fans, keep coming to our shows, listening to our music, and continue to encourage us along.
This last year, after hearing the stories of how the economy was affecting so many lives and families... we finally began to see and feel it's affect on us. We were forced to make difficult, yet frugal, decisions like letting our friends/band mates go, parking and now selling our bus, scaling everything back to an acoustic duo, and in the middle of it all, we separated from our label, INO Records. There have been many humbling days, many of which we have questioned if we could, or should, even continue as 33Miles, mainly for the well-being of our own family's. However, we have seen our online fan base continue to grow daily, Food for the Hungry sponsorships have been through the roof, and you, the fans, continue to challenge us to fight the good fight of faith. More importantly, we have the promises of God... and God's promises always prove true.
So here we are... taking another step of faith... it honestly feels like a leap. Throughout this last season, God has really taught us about worshiping and seeking Him passionately no matter what we may face in life. The ability to worship, in the middle of our trials, is a powerful gift from God. What we continue to hear from you is that life is hard, as we well know, and God has used 33Miles to help you along... and that's what we want to do. We want to give you something that will spur real heartfelt Christ-worship in the middle of this crazy life. In the middle of the music industry, you can get really caught up in music, radio, record sales, the lights, the production, and forget that it's about building relationships with the fans, about exalting Christ and showing His love to you, the fans... and we have the best fans in the world. We are amazed that you come to our shows, continue to listen to and share our music, and encourage us along as we are trying to do the same for you. So the plan is for 33Miles to record our first "worship" project this Spring.
Now, you're here at Kickstarter and wondering "what is this all about"? When you part ways from a label, the funding for a project becomes a little tricky, but thanks to this new website kickstarter.com, there is an exciting and new way to do it. If it's about you, the fans, and doing something for you... what better way to do a project, than build it with you? We need you to prayerfully consider giving and helping us fund the creation of this thing. There are a list of rewards to the right of your screen that will be our way of saying "thank you" for your support. We are trying to raise $20,000 or more. The drive to raise the money will last for 35 days. Kickstarter will not charge your card until the minimal pledged amount, $20,000, is reached. If we don't match or surpass that amount, your card will not be charged, whatsoever. So you can see why reaching the goal is so important. Do it as a family, a youth group, a church, a business... get creative! REMEMBER... your credit card will NOT be charged if we don't meet the minimum goal of $20,000 by the deadline... so help spread the word!!!
We are excited and look forward to recording the new project. Thanks for everything. You truly are the best fans we could have ever asked for.
