I have been lucky enough to have friends and fans and co-workers and co-collaberators all wrapped up in one big traveling circus of a family. We've played so many shows together and jammed so many times that getting in the studio with them just feels natural. This will be the third time it's happened on a cover album like this, and the first two were so fun I'm honestly counting the days till I can get started on the next one.
The last one, Covers with Friends, debuted at #8 on the iTunes charts and also appeared on the Billboard charts, but I can honestly say those accolades pale in comparison to the simple joy I saw when the fans got their hands on it. It's been very well received both in and out of the SPN fandom and it's been really fun to introduce some new voices to the fans.
This next project will be similar to the last one with some classic covers, and I may include a different take on a few more modern hits as well. But the song list and guest list are yet to be determined!
As far as who will be involve on this project, I have no definite answers at this point but I can promise you two things, everyone who was involved in either of the first two will get the invite, and I've made some new musical friends since those went into production who will also be getting a call from me! (And yes, before you ask, I will be asking Jensen, Jared, Misha, Mark, Rob, Rich, Osric, Tim, Brianna, Kim, Mike, Ruth, Julie, Mandy, Matt, and a few others!) now obviously, that is probably too many for this 10-12 song album, but as always, schedules, work, fam, etc, will determine who has time and who doesn't, and those that can't maybe we'll work on getting them in the studio at another time!
I'm confident we will raise the necessary capital to make the album, so that's why I put the goal at $1. This is simply an invitation for anyone that wants to be part of the process! There will be exclusive email updates, pictures, stories, and possibly videos from the entire process, plus some fun offerings you won't be able to get anywhere other than this project, so I hope you can join us!
Risks and challenges
This being the 3rd time I've done a covers album, and the 4th time I've funded a project with Kickstarter, I'm very well aware of the challenges, but I'm up to the task! the main challenges will come with the fulfillment, (as in about 5% of the orders for whatever reason will not show up where they were sent!) So I'll have to tackle that when it comes up, like I'm currently doing with Covers with Friends!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
