I was born way up in the cold and the rain. Spent some time wandering round, chasing trains. Went to a school and learned to spell my name. Woke up by the ocean and can't much complain.
To finish my first independent album, The Killing Frost. The songs were all recorded this fall at Room With a View Studios, now they just need to be professionally mixed, mastered and pressed onto CDs.
If I reach my goal of $3,000, $1,700 will go toward mixing & mastering and $1,300 toward pressing the CDs. (Any money over my goal will go toward promoting the album).
The Killing Frost is an ode to life in The North. Stories about growing up in broken country, weathering cold, short days, and the constant needs to leave and return home again. The characters are widowers, children and travelers. They search for things: warm weather, lost memories, the last frontier...
The recordings are simple and raw: just live takes of me playing and singing in the studio, some using just a single microphone. There's also a little banjo and me banging on a drum here and there.
The Future is good! I'm gonna play a ton of shows, hit the road, and keep pursuing my dream of playing music full-time.
So, thanks for all of your generous support!
Risks and challenges
The recordings are done, so there's little risk that the album will be delayed. But unexpected things do happen. I'll do my best to prevent any delays, but If something does come up, I promise to keep you informed and happy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
