About

I'm  so excited to be recording my first new CD in 7 years!  The new music will make you dance, pat your feet, bob your head, and sway to sweet, melodic compositions unlike anything you've heard from me before.

If you're not familiar with my music, please feel free to watch my live performance video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVZ2ns132TI.  Also, visit me by stopping by www.reverbnation.com/darrylevanjones and www.fluteman.com

Why Kickstarter?  Kickstarter is the perfect outlet for new and upcoming artists who want to step outside the traditional boundaries of presenting their music.  Think of pre-sales - you are basically ordering the new CD ahead of the commercial market release, with some additional incentives.  As an artist, I'm pouring myself into this project, giving you best of me.  I can't wait to make it for you.  It would go a long way to me making a splash in the industry for you to buy it first.  I assure you it will keep your finger on the repeat button!

Why so much money?  The cost of producing a CD is expensive as an independent aritst, yet feasible where the focus of the financial support will be production and other aspects involving getting it to the public.  There are a myriad of costs including producers, musicians, licenses, mixing and mastering engineers, graphic artists, and, CD manufacturing.  (This doesn't even include marketing and promotion.)  I sincerely hope you'll agree to be a part of my Kickstarter campaign, in exchange for some really cool rewards - not to mention my deepest thanks and appreciation.

The new CD, "Relentless", is unlike anything I've done before.  I have been on a "Relentless" mission to bring my music to the forefront, a place where listeners are able to see and hear how the flute transcends perceived boundaries.  Not only is the background music done with live musicians (instead of programmed keyboards), but there's a more energentic sound showing my growth as an artist.

Risks and challenges

If I'm not able to reach my funding goal, I will not receive the money that has been pledged. "Relentless" would become the story that never gets to be told.

If I am funded, there still could be other challenges. There could certainly be delays, since I'm using a lot of different services and contractors to produce the CD. This is a multi-step process with lots of components that have to come together to deliver a completed CD project.

With all that being said, please do me the honor of joining me in being "Relentless".

Thank you,
Darryl Evan Jones
