ME + YOU
If you are like me, sometimes you long to experience music that lives honestly and deeply in the great mystery of God. Songs that move you to pray and to worship. Songs that lead you into the heart of another person who then leads you deeper into the heart of God.
But sometimes, like me, you just need music. Music with no bent. Songs that move you to sing, to dance, to feel. Songs that lead you into the heart of another person and then, by the nature of the beautiful, deeper into the heart of God in another way.
With this new record, I want to give you just that. Songs of life and love (ME) and songs that had nowhere to go but prayed (YOU). These songs connect so closely but represent something so unique when kept apart. These are songs that weave in and out of the narrative of my life and probably yours too.
So what kind of music is this anyway?
If this is your first encounter with my music... Hey! Great to meet you! We will have piano-driven soul songs, love songs that we can sing together and if you liked my last EP, some of the same acoustic-driven, catchy tunes you are accustomed to hearing (ME).
There will also be songs that live deeply in that ache to know God and to understand our place in that story. These songs and hymns will be filled with rich strings, piano and guitar that bring our deepest prayers to life (YOU).
So will you join in me in this project?
Everything in us longs for community. We long for a life that is meant to be shared. I live in this reality as a musician. These songs I am privileged to make are not my own. They are meant to be shared and would mean very little if we did not share in them together. That is why crowdfunding is so incredible. We really, like for real, get to make and encounter beauty together.
We have two songs down and six more to go. By jumping on this project you will help fund...
- Production fees
- Studio time
- Mixing and mastering
- Merch (CDs, sheet music, etc)
A 100% of what we raise for this project will go directly to ME + YOU.
And think of this - if you look at those bigger rewards and think, "man that sounds awesome, but I don't think I can swing $500 or $1000." Get a few friends together, pool your money (you pay for it so you can get those credit card points) and BOOM, you have a trip to Nashville with your best friends or BOOM you get to host and plan a house concert with your best buds.
When we did this for the first time five years ago, I had no idea how powerful an experience we could create together. I have so many stories to tell of the hearts that were moved. And now we get to do it again. Thanks for being you. The world needs it. I need it. I can't wait to journey with you all on this project!
Risks and challenges
If this is your first rodeo with Kickstarter, there are inherent risks when launching a campaign. First, there are physical and emotional risks for me as it threatens to make me curl up in a ball in a corner for 45 days as a nervous, introverted wreck. Secondly and more seriously, if we don't reach our $12,000 goal, ME + YOU doesn't happen. But we have a big and beautiful community and an even bigger God! If we do this thing together, we will get it funded in no time.
So if you are jumping on board, please share this with everyone who you think will be interested! Insta, Facebook, email, Tom from Myspace, your mailman. The bigger the community the better.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
