We have recorded 10 new worship songs. Now we need to master and manufacture this CD and we need YOUR help - and every bit helps!
Something New is, well... Something New! - for us anyway.
Steve (that's me) and Sandi (that's her) Padilla (that's both of us) have made 10 new recordings and now we need our friends help to put the finishing touches on it.
I started working on this CD one year ago when I had the crazy idea to build the whole CD on an iPad. With the iPad app iMS-20, we built several tracks and went out with our iPad and a few other instruments and played on the street, in churches, and even in an Irish pub! It went so well we took it to the next level and bounced the iPad tracks to our home studio and layered more instruments on top of that. The first result was "Revelation Song". Starting out with an iPad solo, it goes into some simple drum beats and rhythmic pulses behind lush strings and piano. For fun, I then made a video for the song with scenes from various anime movies and put it up on YouTube. The response was overwhelming, so we continued with our project and one year later we were done!
Now we need to master it, have graphic design work, a photo shoot, and manufacture 1000 CDs. This will cost us $2500 and we are using Kickstarter.com to help us reach our goal. You can pledge any amount and if by our deadline the goal is not reached, you will not be charge for your pledge and we won't receive a dime. However, if our goal is met then you, as a pledge, will receive cool stuff from us and our sincere thanks. If, for some reason, we get more than our goal, we will use the extra to order more CDs.
So please give and help us reach our goal! We lead worship at our church, other churches, camps and conferences on a regular basis. Having this CD will mean not only blessing others with encouraging music, but blessing us and our ministry to give us something we can offer at our events and concerts.
The songs on this CD are deeply personal and most talk about my recovery from an emotional breakdown and substance abuse. God has delivered me from the bondage of alcohol and mental illness and these songs speak of that experience and how God can deliver all of us from the chains that bind us in this life and give us true freedom to experience Him in all fullness in this and the next life.
We hope that these songs will encourage and bless you as we all walk on this journey together.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and whatever happens with this project we know that God is for us. And if God is for us, who can be against us?
