Josiah James aims to release his Second Album "ALL FORGOTTEN THINGS" in early 2012. This CD's made for Jesus to share with others.
Hey everyone! Josiah James here and I need YOUR help. I'm wanting to record my new record, "All Forgotten Things", but I have reached a road block and am unable to finish it due to lack of funds.
It was about 3 years ago that I recorded my last full length album, "The Morning Light". I've taken a lot longer then I desired to record a second full length due to not having the budget for it. My goal in raising the money is to fund the recording, producing and printing of this album. Think of this as a pre-order of the CD. By giving now, you will be an integral part in guaranteeing that this project will happen and hopefully be successful!
A lot goes in to making an album happen. From renting the studio, paying the producer, mixing, mastering, art design & manufacturing. I set my budget at $12,000 which will cover all the basic expenses of recording. I'm needing $4,000 via this kickstarter to meet the rest of this goal.
The idea behind the album theme and title, "All Forgotten Things", is that we all from time to time, like Israel, forget what God's done for us, and we tend to stray away in small and/or large ways. We forget His love, His holiness, His goodness, and worst of all, that He is capable of saving us. This album will be a tool used to remind Christians of God's promises and to share the love of Jesus to those that don't know His saving love.
Since this is going to be a high production record, all your prayers possible would also be hugely needed and appreciated!
I will be posting updates on recording through this Kickstarter site, Twitter, Facebook and my website! Thank you guys!

If we don't reach our goal of $4,000, I will not receive any money and no one will be charged for their pledge. Unfortunately, I will also not be able to record the new record in October.
You will not be charged unless we reach our goal of $4,000. Once this milestone is reached and the campaign has ended, your credit card will be charged for the amount of your pledge. We ask that you sign up using an e-mail that you check often, in case your card bounces at the time of charge.
If for some reason you would like to reduce or increase your pledge amount, you can do so by simply logging into your Kickstarter account. If you do need to give less, please be considerate and do not reduce your donation right before the campaign ends. We will gladly refund any money after the fact.
I will do my best to deliver any and all incentives once the album has been completed in January. For skype dates and personal concerts, we will deliver these at the time most convenient to all parties involved.
If you feel the need to donate outside of Kickstarter, for whatever reason, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org about different options (Checks, Paypal, benefit concerts)
