"The Apostle's Mead" The drinking man's Gospel CD

$1,555

32

 On November 8th we are recording a drinking man's Gospel CD. Growing up in Ireland, I sang about God in churches and in pubs. We believe that God's house is a "public house". We sing Gospel, loud and rowdy. If you can't imagine what that sounds like just think of Southern Gospel Hymns sung like Irish drinking songs, then throw in some jigs and reels between the cuts.

This is our second time funding a CD on Kickstarter, "Half and Half" was our first. We are very grateful for all your support and welcome your feedback on our website or facebook. We are pretty confident this will work again so we are throwing in a bonus based on our stretch goal of $1800.

If we reach our stretch goal  of $1800 we will include some Irish Christmas Carols as downloads. (Temporarily exclusive to our kickstarter backers)

Here is the track list so far:

Every Time I feel the Spirit

Glory Bound

I Saw the Light

Keep on the Sunny Side

I've Got Peace Like a River

If I Should Fall From Grace With God

Jesus Walking on the Water

Oh Happy Day

The Holy Ground

Whiskey Heaven

They'll Know we are Christians by our Love

When the Roll is called up Yonder

This Land is Your Land

The House of The Rising Sun

Risks and challenges

We have already recorded 5 CDs and funded our last project "Half and Half " on Kickstarter as recently as last year. We've done this before so I'm not expecting many challenges.
That said, we are recording the whole CD live in one night, so there may have to be some pick up sessions in the studio to add backing vocals etc. Even so, that's something we've budgeted for so it shouldn't delay the release. We've set that date for February of next year, just in case. If we don't encounter any bumps in the road it may be out a little sooner.
