Mike Monts Music is an acoustic solo project by singer/songwriter Mike Monts De Oca from Lakeland, Florida.
Hey guys! Welcome to my Kickstarter project. Here you can help me fund my dream - recording, manufacturing and releasing my very first solo album. I've put a lot of emotion and hard work into writing what I believe are heartfelt songs that many types of people can connect with. This is a process that I won't be able to finish without your help.
Here's a brief overview of how this whole thing works. You pick a backing level (or something you're comfortable with) and donate. If my project, at the end of 30 days becomes 100% or more funded than your card on file gets charged the amount you pledged. If at the end I don't reach my goal than I get nothing and you don't get charged a cent. No harm, no foul. Sounds pretty easy eh?
Here's a little bit about me as a musician:
Mike Monts Music is a solo project straight from the heart of local musician Mike Monts De Oca. Playing guitar mostly all of his life, Mike is experienced with playing through several bands, as well as the good ol' days of jamming in the dorm room. Needing a new direction to take his music, Mike used inspiration from musicians like Mumford & Sons, Damian Rice, John Mayer and Ray LaMantagne to drive his songs toward a destination. The results are songs written about love and struggles in life, with a sort of Pop/Folk feel.
My CD, entitled "Writing on the Wall," features all the music that I could never write while playing with a band. The songs on this album are very special to me and I would love for you to hear them. Thanks in advance to any help you can provide!
Music has always been a huge part of my life. Growing up with music all around me has helped shape who I am as a person and as an artist. After playing with bands and toying around at bars and coffee shops I have decided to produce my very own solo album. The recording process is one that takes much time, dedication and money. After recording I plan on manufacturing physical copies of my CD, as well as hit the online market - such as CD Baby, Amazon Music and iTunes. This project will also help fund marketing and advertising material to help get my name and music out there. Thanks so much for being a part of journey. Its going to be a great trip.
