I appreciate everyone’s patience this summer! Initially I was leaning towards making a digital release, and hand-preparing any physical copies of the CD. During the project, I decided that I wanted to have the physical CD version professionally produced as well, which has taken more time and money but I really feel that it will be worth it. I’ve seen a preview of the CD design, and the style is very unique! It captures a lot of the emotion that is in the music.
The CD artwork should be done this coming Monday, and then I will square away all of the final details with the CD manufacturer that I’ve selected. After that, there’s an 8 day wait for the CDs to arrive to my house, and I’ll ship everything to the Backers as soon as I receive that shipment. In the meantime, I’ll be working on getting the beautiful songwriting journals embossed (see a sneak peek in the included picture), and revising the tshirt design.
In addition to the Kickstarter goodies, I’ll be updating my website, working with TuneCore for my distribution needs, collaborating with my PR contact on a press release, and preparing for the CD release event. I'm looking forward to wrapping up this huge step in my musical aspirations!
And in case anyone is wondering, I hope to find some spare time to watch the Olympics! Hopefully you will too. Game on, Summer Olympics 2012!
THANK YOU to everyone who helped with this Kickstarter campaign!! All of you (the Backers, the film production crew, the people who helped spread the word through Facebook and Twitter, and many more) deserve to be recognized for your incredible support. I'm about to meet with my producer for a long session that will help guide the next two months of recording, and am excited that this project has made it to this point! I couldn't have done it without your help!
If you'd like to see the original music video of "This Old Radio" before the Kickstarter comments were added, you can view it by clicking here. Hopefully another video will be made by the time the EP is released, so stay tuned!
With my kickstarter campaign coming to a close, I've been thinking a lot more about my songwriting. I'm working hard to get the lyrics just right, and am so excited to finally be able to share my songs! Thanks to all of the generous pledges, I won't have to keep waiting and waiting for that day when my songs are released; it will be here before I know it!
I really appreciate all of the support I've received over the last month. To quote the song I featured in my kickstarter video, "you light up the world for me." Seriously, thanks everyone for your interest in my project. You have made a huge difference! :)
