For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to record an album of hymns. Throughout my life, hymns have spoken to me in a powerful way, in a way that most other songs cannot. They have spoken louder this year, as I've been faced with some significant struggles. So, now that I'm a fully independent solo artist once again, and am free to record whatever I want, I've decided to create a new album, simply entitled Hymn.
This album will contain six timeless hymns that mean a lot to me, hymns such as "It Is Well With My Soul," "Before The Throne," "I Have Decided," "Nothing But The Blood," and more. I've put my own spin on these hymns, staying true to the emotion behind them but arranging them in a unique fashion, running the gamut from electro/pop to one arrangement that simply features bells, drums, and vocals.
Hymn will also feature six hymns that I've written myself, hymns that have been borne out of my experience as an imperfect believer in a fallen world. Hymns that you, too, can hopefully identify with and sing. These are songs you may have already heard me play live: songs like "What Kind Of Love Is This?", "Father," and "I Need More."
I've already recorded much of this album, but simply don't have sufficient funds for the rest of the recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing, and promotion costs necessary for this album to be released. I need your help to make this album and prayer of mine a reality.
Thank you so much for your contribution to this Kickstarter project. It really does mean so much to me.
Risks and challenges
I don't foresee any challenges to releasing this album once the project is successfully funded. This is the eighth album I've released and am very familiar with the start-to-finish process. The only setbacks that might arise are small potential delays in getting the album mixed and mastered, due to a lack of available studio time on days that work with my schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
