Hello! I think you are wonderful for reading and taking interest in my journey to record my fifth album. Though I reside in the Ozarks of Arkansas, I have a unique opportunity to work with two talented folks in Montana: Chris Cunningham of Story Hill and  Connor Garvey, singer/songwriter.

I feel like this collection of songs are my best yet, and I am honored to have you interested.   This kickstarter campaign has been created to reward you for helping me cover the cost of the producer, the musicians, graphic design, and duplication fees.

However, if double the goal amount is met, I would like to commission a local artist to paint the album artwork, hire a photographer for a professional shoot, and have enough left over to promote this album to radio, print and on the road.
About these songs...these songs are inspired by my actual life. Yes, maybe a melodramatically, but never the less, most of the songs are true.  My hope is that this album makes you want to sing, sing, sing! Even if someone has told you can't sing, you CAN, and you SHOULD! I want you to sing along with me! I hope we sing everywhere together: in your car, while you are working, or on the Grand Ole Opry.  I will be experimenting with some new styles and instrumentation that I think will be pleasing to your ear!

As you may know, I left 3 Penny Acre several years ago to pursue my own sound and songs. I have really challenged myself with writing and vocal arrangements this last year, and I am excited to share the nooks and crannies of my voice with you. The journey has begun. The question is, will you accept the invitation to come along and be a part of this this album? I hope so.

Your Fan Forever,

Shannon Wurst
