Hello!! I'm Derek Bishop,
singer-songwriter and keyboard player!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my KICKSTARTER campaign. If you havent watched the video above — please do so now, as it explains so much of why I'm here. But, just in case videos scare you, here it is all written out.
Basically, I'm in the process of recording my second CD. My first CD, RESISTANCE IS BEAUTIFUL, was released in 2011 to great press, reviews, and was loved by many. It contained 12 songs of what I like to call "extra-catchy, eclecto-piano-pop." Basically, those are songs so darn catchy they stick in your head for weeks.
For my new record, I have all the songs written, plus my favorite producer and and my new band are all ready to go.
Basically, I need your help.
I want this new album to be the best it can be and I need help to fund the recording, distribution and promotion of the CD. Any little amount helps, and every dime I receive, I will double with my own money. There are also some great rewards over here on the right to help entice you! :)
I'm so proud of this music and I want to share it with the world.
But I also want to present it in its best form. Please help me reach my goal of $8000 so that I can continue with my dream to make and play music..and share this new album with you.
By pledging, you are actually taking part in the creation of the album. I will keep you updated with news, videos, and so much more. I will use my time and energy to ensure your money goes to a cause that is worth supporting and believing in.
I could not have come this far without your help. Thank you for that – and thank you in advance for our future.
For your viewing pleasure, here are a couple self-produced videos from my last album:
