I'm just about finished recording my new EP "Gypsy Wind," but I need help w/making CD's for you to hold in your hands! And listen to!
Well...I am floored...this is nuts. It's the third day of the kickstarter and the goal has already been exceeded (granted it's a small goal, but still!!). I want to thank everybody so much for contributing. This is an album i really believe in and am really excited to release. The songs are very personal to me but were intentionally written to be relatable. Hopefully everybody is able to take something away from it! May 15th is the day!
This kickstarter will still be up for a few weeks, so I encourage you to view this page as an EP pre-order page. Your cards won't actually be charged/debited until the project deadline. Check out the different rewards to the right, hopefully you'll find something that looks great to have. Don't forget to listen to the single...$1 guarantees you the single being emailed to you today! Hooray to that
I'm Michael Trieb, i like to spend my time writing songs in order to explore, to explain, to vent, to question, and to celebrate. Songwriting and music has always been a significantly therapeutic mode of expression for myself, personally. My songs tend to come from a place that is yearning to say something that can't be communicated well through any other means of communication.
2010 saw the release of my debut full-length album, "Again and Again." While being recorded pretty crudely in my basement after coming home from work at midnight all summer, i was able to say what I wanted to say at that point in my life and close the book on some things. 2012 is a new year (so was 2011, but anyway) and I've got some new things I want to share with whoever is willing to listen.
So...cutting to the chase...I'm just about finished recording my brand new six-song EP, "Gypsy Wind." I'm really pumped about it and want as many people to hear it as possible! I'm blessed to be surrounded by creative people who have been helping this album become a reality. Something that differentiates this album from the previous one is that a ton of my friends play on it. The album as a whole is a lot more dynamic and deliberate.
The purpose of this kickstarter is to provide some sweet rewards in exchange for your help in funding the printing of physical CD copies (CD wallets) of my EP. Any other funds raised will also go toward distribution and copyrighting costs. The plan is to release the album online, as well as CD's, on May 15th!
What makes this kickstarter unique is that I'm more than willing to create some original pieces of art for anyone willing to spend a little extra money. This includes Haikus, and paintings!! Check out the video for a little more info on that. Any questions, just ask! This album means a lot to me, and I'm excited to share it with as many people as possible!
