I'm making a Christmas EP! Figured it's time for some new Christmas songs, and to do my part in bringing back the true meaning and spirit of Christmas. The EP will be called, "New Christmas".
Three of the songs will be written by me. One of them, "Christmas Found Me After All", will be a re-recording of a song I wrote and recorded already in 2012. I want to do a new version with fresh vocals, since I sing much better now. The old version is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-lbr1IL4BQ
Two of the songs are well-known, "The Christmas Song" (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire... by Melvin Tormé and Robert Wells) and "Silent Night". The latter, I will sing in five languages: English, Swedish (my native tongue), Norwegian (my father's native tongue), German and French - to give the EP an international feel and send an international message of Christmas joy and peace!
I will have wonderful, gifted and well trained musicians to help me record instruments such as the cello, the viola, the guitar, the piano (on "The Christmas Song") and the djembe. And I sure want to pay them fairly. There will also be a need for funds for mixing and mastering, and marketing. (I play the piano and the violin myself.)
Risks and challenges
One risk I see is if any of my musicians get sick or for some other reason can't complete their part/s. If that happens, I do have people in my network, who could fill in or know others who could.
Another risk is of course if I myself get sick, so I can't finish the project. If that happens, I will get the extra help I may need to get it done on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
