What amazing support! thank you all so much for putting this way over the edge! obviously this means we'll be able to do a little bit bigger and better album now that we have the funds to do it, AND, if we can get to 30,000 before this crazy train ends we're gonna throw a HUGE release party in Los Angeles and you guys, the kickstarter backers get first dibs on tickets!!

My name is Gil McKinney and I am an actor and singer based in Los Angeles. Over the past few years, I have been lucky enough to begin building a fan base by attending conventions as a guest for the hit TV shows Supernatural and Once Upon a Time. It is at these conventions that I have been able to perform for and meet so many wonderful people from all over the world. Many of whom have encouraged me to record an album. 

Well the time has come to make this dream a reality. My hope is to get into the studio as quickly as possible and have this album available by May of 2017. I will collaborate with the most talented musicians I know and bring on singer/songwriter, Jason Manns, to help produce it. 

Join me on this adventure, and I will work hard to deliver something very special to You! 

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter and first solo album. So I will be learning as I go. With that being said I have brought on Kickstarter alumni, Jason Manns, to help guide me through the entire process. I have no doubt that together we will knock this out of the park!
