Studio booked! Time for a new record!
As some of you may know, I put out a CD for kids recently. 'Rough Day At The Sandbox' is something of which I'm quite proud. I've become a "Juice Box Hero" of sorts (ouch,sorry). Anyway, some parents of the little monsters have been inquiring about my recordings for the "grown-up" market. I've put out a few recordings over the years but it's been a while. I've recently written some songs that I feel are among my best work and I'd like to share them with you. Also, there are few chestnuts that got lost in the shuffle that need a home.
So here's the plan:
I forget sometimes that many of my dear friends and co-conspirators are World Class musicians and studio engineers. Some of these people I've been playing and writing music with for close to 20 years. I'd say we have some chemistry.
I've got the studio booked for mid-July and a pretty good game plan as far as production goes. I've seriously thought about pitching the idea to a record label but honestly, I'd prefer to keep this between the artists and the listeners.
I've set my Funding Goal at $11,000. This will almost cover the cost of recording,mixing,mastering, paying the recording engineer, paying the musicians, CD manufacturing, and artwork. I hope. It's gonna be really tight but this KICKSTARTER thingie is an "all or nothing" proposition. If the funding goal isn't reached by the deadline, you guessed it, bupkis. Game over. So with that in mind, I set the goal a bit lower than I know the whole thing will cost. This way if I make the lower goal, at least I can get to work on it.
If you do decide to be involved in this undertaking, I am most grateful. If it's not your thing, please feel free to pass this along to someone who might be interested. Thanks so much.
