This past winter, those of us in New England had to find inventive ways to keep our sanity, and one method I used was to post on facebook asking if there was a song anyone wanted to hear me play. This led to me posting a bunch of old recordings -- many of them from back before I really considered myself a real songwriter -- along with a few new ones. After a few weeks of this, my record label, 75orLess Records, sent me a note asking if I wanted to put out a CD with some of these songs on it ... and here we are!
The recordings will be remixed and mastered by the good folks at Machines with Magnets, so, even if you've heard these recordings before, you'll be getting better sounding versions of them.
My fundraising goal is $500, which will cover about 2/3 of the costs, including mixing and mastering, licensing fees for the covers, and manufacturing costs.
If you missed getting my last CD, 'Time To Break Up The Band', the 'Band Fever' option will get you a copy of that, plus this new 5 song CD.
What's on the album?
The tracks are:
- 1. My Little Lobster
- 2. I'm Sick (Of This American Life) (They Might Be Giants cover)
- 3. Maybe I Know (Lesley Gore/Ellie Greenwich cover)
- 4. I Wish That I Was Vegan
- 5. Swat the Bees
The Ringtone Option
I'm offering this reward again for this campaign. Since I don't have any studio time, this will be a home recording, just me, whatever instruments I have around, and whatever GarageBand tricks I can muster. With that said, I will try to make your ringtone as awesome as I can!
Risks and challenges
The songs are already recorded (though I might try to re-record one or two), 75orLess has already agreed to manufactor the CDs, and the mixing and mastering is already scheduled, so this should be pretty straightforward.
If some unforeseen disaster did occur that prevented the CD from being made, then I should be able to refund everyone's money.
So I'm trying to think of what could go wrong here, but, really, I think this is a pretty safe one.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
