I'm working on a full length CD with respected producer, and artist, Chris Cunningham. I need your support to make it a reality!
About this project
I am super excited to get into the studio with a phenomenal producer and artist to work on my first professional produced full length CD.
Over the last year, a number of my original songs have been played on FM radio stations across the nation, as well as in Europe and Australia. They have also made their way to several respected internet stations. I attended the Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis were I received a number of offers to play in venues across the country.
Now I need a CD with the high quality required for an artist to move to the next stage of their career. And this is where you come in. Producing a CD isn't an inexpensive proposition. Indie artist, like myself, don't have the funding of a major label to absorb the production costs. I have set my goal at 1/2 the amount necessary. That's because Kickstarter doesn't collect, or distribute, money if you don't meet your goal. I'm hoping my supporters will exceed my goal and fully fund this project
The songs are ready to go. All I need to do now is get into the studio to complete the recording process, add the background musicians and vocals. Then it's off to mastering and duplication.
Here's some info on Chris Cunningham, the person I've chosen to produce my CD:
"With over 20 years of experience as a nationally touring singer/songwriter, producer and recording engineer, Chris brings a vast skill set to artists seeking a quality and meaningful studio experience. Signed to Red House Records, a highly regarded Americana / roots label, Chris has a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and triumphs of having a career as a musician and a deep desire for sharing his know-how, skills, and experience with others. He founded Basecamp on the intention to foster, connect with and serve the wider community of songwriters and acoustic musicians both in and outside of Montana and to further extend his passion for creative expression in the world. "
Having a producer of Chris' caliber agree to produce your work is quite an honor. A producer only wants to work with artists they know will uphold their reputations. So I must be on the right track.
I hope you feel this is a project worth supporting and can contribute any amount you feel comfortable.
All my best,
