This update is for the world. FTW, indeed. I'm very pleased (what an understatement. I'm giddy. Ecstatic. Over the moon) to announce that I picked up the Gold Master of the record on Saturday. That means that all the recording, mixing, and mastering is complete. All that's left is to design the packaging (the phase we're in), duplicate it, then ship it. I am still tripping out to listening to MY songs being brought to life in the most exquisite and masterful musicians on the planet. (Truly - we had Bruce Springsteen's bassist, Lady Antebellum's guitar player, Winona Judd's utility guy (mando, banjo, guitar) an awesome drummer and a GRAMMY and Dove Award winning engineer/producer). I was standing in the recording studio among giants, and was quite humbled, let me tell you.
I've also been working with an amazing industry professionals here in Nashville on the packaging and promotions plan and will launch/release the record "officially" sometime in either November or Jan/Feb '14. The results of the recording process are so amazing that I really want to make sure l do the release, promotion and distribution of this right.
Kickstarter backers, THANK YOU - I couldn't have done it without you! I absolutely mean that. I'm going to have a special message for you here on Kickstarter in the next 48 hours... I hope you're going to like what you hear. :)
