Just like a garden in your back yard, something home grown tastes real - it tastes fresh - it doesn't taste processed. Just as your garden takes time to grow and muscles to cultivate and harvest, so does this project. With your help I can harvest the seeds I have sown.
Home Grown Volume One started as a vision of bringing my roots music to a wider audience. It is a mix of country and gospel songs, all written or co-written by me. I want to create a project that will be as close as possible to the music that you would hear live and in person. To that end I am not using over the top production or guest artists. I am playing any instrument that you will hear.
All the songs are written and I have studio time booked. When I'm finished there will be the expense of duplication, registering with the online retailers, etc. In addition to duplication for the purpose of having product at gigs, I will have the expense of promotion to online retailers, online radio, satellite radio and of course demo copies for Nashville executives to hear. All this takes money above and beyond studio and duplication.
Thanks to you the goal is met. To add a little extra goodness to this, if we make the $1,000 mark I will include TWO custom guitar picks to anyone that receives a CD. Here's the rough draft of the pick...
And if we make it to $1,500, I will include a custom T-Shirt for anyone that pledges at least $50. Here's the rough draft of it...
Risks and challenges
All ten of the chosen songs are written and complete, and studio time is booked. The artwork is in production. There is no risk as the CD will be completed anyway. By backing, though, you will help me complete all the additional goals outlined above, as well as pick up some special goodies for yourself. :-)
I will communicate with you, the backer of this project, on all stages of production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
