About this project

Growing up in the Seattle area, it was impossible for a creative mind like me to avoid getting drawn into the music scene. After years of being inspired by the successes of other local artists like He is We, I decided that I wanted to move past playing small local shows and let other people hear my music.

Everyone knows that dreams don't come cheap, and that reality hits you harder when you're a college student trying to make your first CD. However, with the help of Kickstarter, you can make my dream a reality!

Help me fund my first album! This will be my debut EP. All recording and mixing will be done locally. I am planning on recording 5 songs, but if I raise enough money, I'll also make a "deluxe edition" with a bonus song and extra artwork.

Here are my projected expenses:

  • Studio time/mixing - $1,350
  • CD production/distribution- $1,650
  • That's an approximate total of $3,000. Kickstarter and Amazon take a cut though, so feel free to donate more!

Any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to contact me at samjaeckel@gmail.com. Thanks!
