Brad has a degenerative disease. Millions watched him play his guitar during a brain surgery to control it. Now, time is running out.

My name is Brad Carter.  I am an actor, artist, occasional stand-up comedian, and a guitarist from Macon, Georgia now living in Los Angeles, Ca.  In the past few months I've had two surgeries on my brain to help me play guitar again. Maybe you saw it on the "Today Show" or your local news. I never knew any of that was going to happen. All I wanted was to be able to play guitar for a few years longer.  I have a disease called "Essential Tremor". This is a progressive neurological disease and there is no cure. My doctors think it could very well become Parkinson's in the near future. I want to make the most of the time the surgery has given me by recording an album and sharing my story with you. Thank you for becoming a part of this Kickstarter project. It means the world to me.

Scroll down to learn more about my project, see who will be part of the album, and take a look at some incredible pics from my surgery. 

Surprise guests announced every few days via Video Messages offering SPECIAL PERKS! Guests so far include: Tony Hawk, Lance Krall (Free Radio, The Lance Krall Show), and Gerry Bednob (40 year old Virgin, Zak and Miri Make A Porno)

I want to do what seemed so impossible and out of reach only a few months ago: RECORD A FULL LENGTH PROFESSIONAL ALBUM!  I have been given this awesome and unexpected opportunity to tell my story and share it with the world. I want to record an album and tell you my story through my music.

Some of my favorite artists and friends have agreed to pitch in on the album. I'm very excited to have:

SEAN WATKINS 
(Nickel Creek, Fiction Family, Watkins Family Hour) 

TOM BROSSEAU
 

JESSE THOMAS

Mary Elizabeth Winstead will provide backup vocals on a couple of tracks.

SO WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO? I have spoken with an amazing producer and friend of mine Jim Roach. Jim broke it down for me to a minimum of $45,000.00 This includes prep, recording, studio time, producer time, studio musicians, guest musicians, mixing, mastering, packaging, and artwork to support the album. 

Here is how the $45,000 breaks down:

Producer fee - $2500 x 10 Songs = $25,000
Studio Time- $300 per day x 20 days = $6,000
Mixing - $500 per song = $5,000
Mastering= $1,200
CD Production= $1,100
Recording Total = Approximately $38,500

Then we add in:  
Kickstarter Fees (5%)
Amazon Fees (5%)
and team support, editor of my KS vids, PR and Publicist expenses, shipping of the rewards, and TAX. Yes that's right I get taxed on this.

We're looking at a minimum Goal = $45,000

For 7 years I have struggled with losing control of my hands to a disease called "Essential Tremor", making it more and more difficult to play and perform. Having played music for many years, losing the ability to do the thing I love the most has been quite difficult and heartbreaking. I have run the gamut of emotions with this and sometimes the depression has been overwhelming. I've done my best to adapt to my tremor in order to keep working as an actor. 

On May 23rd of this year I was given a chance to fight back and prolong my skills through a medical procedure called "DBS" (Deep Brain Stimulation). This is a procedure that involves the placing of electrodes in my brain and a control in my chest. By using electrical stimulation to a tiny spot in my thalamus, my doctors hope to improve my condition and to be able to manage it. The surgery took about 7 hours and I was awake for 6 hours of it, and YES it was SCARY as HELL!

You have to be awake so that you can respond to your doctors and find just the right spot to place the electrode. It is incredibly complicated. The thalamus also controls speech and there were times when I completely lost my ability to speak. It is the most surreal thing I have ever experienced in my life. 

The worst thing I ever felt in my life. Let's just say I picked the wrong day to stop cussing.

Because I was the 500th patient at UCLA to have this procedure done, the hospital asked to film the surgery, and honestly I thought it would be really cool to have it. I mean how often do you get a video of your own brain surgery? 

I played my guitar during the surgery and it was tweeted live and suddenly it became world news! It was viewed over 30 million times on just the first day. Before long it was on every news channel in the world. Hong Kong, Australia, Iran, you name it. Weird.

UCLA PRESS CONFERENCE AND UPDATE ON MY RECOVERY

Stretch Goal #1: $55,000 MUSIC VIDEO
Of course I hope to overshoot our goal and be able to afford to do more, including a MUSIC VIDEO (because you can't have an album without a music video).We need a minimum of $10,000 for our Music Video. I have an amazing concept for my first single called "Drunk Again" and have some AMAZING guest cameo's in the works.

My good friend Sean Bridgers (Deadwood) has agreed to direct the video! Check out some more of Sean's work! http://www.travelinproductions.com/


On top of that we will have Special Guest Appearances

by Dayton Callie (Deadwood/Sons of Anarchy) 

Earl W. Brown (Deadwood, Something About Mary)

Leah Cevoli (Deadwood/Robot Chicken) 


Leah will also be a Co-Producer on the Music Video.

We have many other surprise guests we're in talks with and will announce them throughout the campaign!
Over to the right-hand side of your screen we have a really cool list of rewards. Digital downloads, signed CDs, T-shirts, a signed guitar, a signed banjo, producer credit, private concerts, studio tours, and lots more. And to top it off, we have some secret celebrity guests offering unique rewards throughout the campaign. So be sure to check back 

often.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I originally launched my Kickstarter in July. I had no idea how much work Kickstarter was and I foolishly was attempting to run this campaign on my own. After just a few days, I was overwhelmed with follow-up Doctor visits as they continue to dial in the device to control my tremors, and realized it was best to pause my campaign, bring a team together to help me and relaunch in a few weeks.

I will be giving constant updates on the progress and keeping you in the loop. You can also "like" me at www.facebook.com/bradcarterfanpage for constant updates and follow me @DisIzBradCarter
Thank You.
