I'm Edan Archer, a singer songwriter recording my first single off a full length album- to analog tape!

Thank you so much for coming to my Kickstarter page and taking the time to see what this project is about. My name is Edan Archer, and I’m a singer songwriter from Gainesville Florida, now based in Miami. I am raising money to record the first single of a full length, professionally produced album! If I’m able to raise the money, this will be the first truly professional recording I have, despite writing songs and playing gigs for over 15 years. In today’s music industry, quality recordings are necessary to take things to the next level: to share online, sell to fans, and play on the radio. Thanks to Kickstarter and amazing people like you, it might just happen. 

Kickstarter is a place where people can donate money to help fund projects they believe in. If we meet our goal and raise the money, then I get to record the single! If we don’t reach our goal, your cards are not charged and we receive none of the donations.

 Right now I have the opportunity to record with producer Bobby Macintyre. Bobby has recorded and toured the world as a drummer with the Twilight Singers featuring Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan, as well as many other writers and artists. He’s going to produce, engineer, and mix the album at his studio, Studio 71, where we will use vintage analog equipment to capture warm, living, classic sounds on actual 2” tape! We will then master the song at Capitol Records in Los Angeles to ensure the best possible quality sound.

Bobby and I have been going through my songs and picking ones for the album, refining the sound, and deciding how to best arrange them. We have chosen ‘Beautiful Thing’ as the first single, and are ready to arrange it with a full band! You are an essential part of making that possible, and helping us start the album with a powerful single that can open doors for the rest of the project. The money we raise together will go toward buying reels of analog tape, studio time, hiring musicians, and professional mastering. Any money we raise over our goal amount will be put toward recording the next song we choose for the album. 

This first song is just the beginning of a full-length album and everything that comes with it- videos, music festivals, tours, and much more. Any amount you are able to pledge helps tremendously! And if you believe in this project, please take a moment to share it with your family and friends to help us reach our goal. Thank you so, so SO much for believing in me and my music; it wouldn’t be possible without you!
