Joseph Aaskov is a solo artist from Maine. He's hitting the road and going on tour to promote his new album, due out in August.
Hello, friends, and welcome to my kickstarter page!
First of all, here are some links to old demos. They might give you just a taste of what the album is going to sound like.
This kickstarter is very pivotal for my album and tour. I've been working and saving toward the tour, but it just isn't enough to get me where I need to be. If I don't raise enough money ($2,500.00), then I don't get any money at all, because that's how Kickstarter works. More money is always welcome, and will definitely be used, but $2,500.00 is my minimum goal. This is my first solo album and tour, and I need all the help I can get!
The song in the video up above isn't necessarily a representation of what my music sounds like, but I hope it highlights the important parts of what this is all about.
The album (yet to be named) is being recorded in my barn and I couldn't be more excited. It's a bare-bones album, which I've always been a fan of. Much of it is just me and a guitar. These days I hear so many songs over-produced, often times to the point of losing its soul, and I wanted to go in a different direction. The hope is that this will showcase my songwriting abilities and gather the attention of the listeners through a very natural sounding record. It's due out some time in August.
The tour will begin at the end of August and coincide with this album. This way I'll be able to sell them at the shows so that I might have a chance of keeping some fans along the way, and each fan really counts! Along with my sister, Sarah, who will be my manager, I will make my way from Maine, to Georgia, and back again. It's an incredibly exciting thing for us, but we NEED your help in order to do it!
Your money will go to things like: Making the album, all things tour related, and merchandise.
Of course, through your lovely donations, you will be presented with rewards! Who doesn't love sweet rewards? On the side of the screen you will see a whole bunch of things that you will receive with each donation. Each little bit counts, and you will always have my undying thanks for your help. Hopefully some day I won't need to raise money to make my dreams happen, but for now I need to ask for help. And even if you can't donate, please spread the word! Thank you!
With great love and appreciation,
P.S. Below is a live video of a song that will be on the album!
