Music From Another Room

$5,611

After spending the last several months writing and 'testing' some new material, it's been encouraging to get such great feedback! Having the opportunity to perform on the Songwriters Across Texas TV show, having my new, unreleased song 'One More Mile' chosen as a Publisher's Pick at the Austin Songwriters annual symposium in January, and performing them in other venues as well. But now it's time to get back into the studio so I can share it with the masses!

These songs are a collection of my most recent singer/songwriter material. Stories about struggle and hope. Stories about faith and doubt. It's a collection of some of the most honest, yet encouraging, songs I think I've written to date. Songs like 'Old Country Road' and 'Beautifully Crazy' (listed as 'One To Watch' by the Nashville Songwriters Association International, or NSAI) will have you singing along and grooving in your shoes. Tracks like  'One More Mile' and 'Beautiful' will remind you of the strength that lies within the human spirit.. and that the things in life that really matter aren't really 'things'.

Of course, then there's the song called 'The Devil I Know'.... :) 

Why the title 'Music From Another Room'? Because sometimes, the things that get our attention are the things we least expect. Like the barely-audible music you can almost hear that captures your attention...it becomes a still, small voice you can't quite drown out. 

So I hope you'll join me in my project. You won't be disappointed. Not only have the songs already begun resonating with people, but I've already begun enlisting some of the most talented musicians and engineers in Austin, TX (the live music capitol of the world!). 

Risks and challenges

Outside death and taxes, there's nothing certain in life. HOWEVER, I don't expect any complications to arise after this is funded. I've done studio projects like this before, as well as worked with some of the musicians and engineers on previous endeavors. I will NOT be working on completing or fulfilling any other projects while trying to accomplish this one. Fulfilling the 'Music From Another Room' project will have my full attention and energy.
