Full-length album to follow the release of last year's "Beach Day" EP ... "Broader Horizons" reaches out for more
I recorded my "Beach Day" EP in Nashville, TN by pooling all of my savings and raising over $3,000 from friends, fans, and family. It was a life-changing move for me and so much has happened since then. Great press, radio interviews, lots of killer offers to play better shows, out of state tour dates, and the coming together of my band, The Swingin Papas! All of my dreams began to come true and I want to thank everybody who’s helped me so far along the way.
I feel like this is a make-or-break point in my career. I so badly want to give back again. I want to make more music for my fans and friends and family and the music community.
I have a full-length album’s worth of new songs ready to record. I want the new album to match the production quality of my “Beach Day” EP. In order to make that happen, I need your help! I’m an independent artist and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I love connecting with my fans on a more personal level and I feel that a grassroots following is the only way to go in the music biz these days. I can’t do it without you!
Here's the deal ... If we raise $6,000, I can cut the album locally with my live band, "The Swingin Papas." They're amazing and we all work so well together. The album will have each of our own little touches on it and it and will be part of St Petersburg, FL music history. The 6k will also cover the cost to print discs.
If we can reach $14,000 (or even get as close as $12,000), I can cut the album in a one-of-a-kind Nashville studio the same way I did "Beach Day."
All of your contributions will be invested into the album. If we raise more than expected, the additional funds will be appropriated towards touring and marketing expenses.
Thank you so much for checking out my Kickstarter Project!
Make sure you check out some of the silly and awesome prizes to the right!
Peace, Love & Beach
Kind regards and much thanks,
