Help us complete this project!

What is the project?

To focus on my worship songs and see an album through to completion. In the past, I've tried to do everything by myself, because I was afraid to bother people with my music. But God has been working on me to allow others to share in the process and help write, produce, record, market, fund and make this album happen!

What have you done so far?

I have written over 60 songs since July of 2011 and selected what we feel are the best seven of those songs and also chose my three best worship songs from the last ten years. I am also very excited to record two of Jeremy Byng's songs (Grace Community Church, Goshen, IN). With the intro, that's 12 tracks that are completely written and ready to record. You may have heard Whatever You Need already. (If you haven't heard it yet, check it out in the video below) It was recorded in Nashville, TN during a project for Barefoot Republic Camp, so it's done. But we still need to record, mix and master the other 11 tracks.

How can I help?

There are three big ways you can help -

1. Pray! This isn't just an album of music. It's songs written specifically for use in the church. It's our hope that people are drawn to how AWESOME God is by the scripture and lyrics in these songs. And we hope that those outside of the church would also be drawn to Christ through the music and words and come to know Him! So we need Christians to pray.

2. Share! We need everyone that cares about this project to tell their friends and neighbors about it. Share the video on Facebook. Email the link to this page to your friends. Talk about it at church. And tell your worship leader to check it out. Maybe they will find a new song to lead at your church!

3. Fund! There is a reward for everyone here. Even if you haven't heard my stuff before and you are just curious, you can get the whole album for as cheap as $1! The same price as a song on iTunes. You can't beat that! Or you could choose any of the other rewards and help us raise the money to get this thing completed. (Also, if you think of a really cool reward that you would like but do not see listed, shoot us an email and we'll see if we can do it.) kickstarter@aaronscantlen.com

What do you need $5,000 for?!?

First of all, that is unbelievably cheap! On a record label, the budget would be $15,000 - $50,000.

And actually we would love to get $7,500. This would allow us a little more time in the studio for each song. We have to hire four main musicians as well as approximately six featured artists/musicians. We have to pay for 2-3 weeks of studio time for recording, mixing and mastering at T. Bush Recording Studio. There is the cost for pressing the CD in a cool eco-wallet package, as well as incidentals such as photography, web site, t-shirts, wristbands and other miscellaneous costs. This stuff adds up quick!

Thank You!

I just want to thank everybody that has helped already and will be helping either here on Kickstarter or on the album to come. This will only work if we join together and make something collectively that none of us could do alone. But most importantly, it's up to God to make this endeavor grow, so we'll be obedient in what He has asked and see what He does! To God be the glory, forever and ever!

He who began a good work in you

Will not stop 'til He sees it through

There's nothing that our God cannot do

He will see it through to completion
