OK...Here's my story.
I'm a Pro Bmx'er with a strong passion for playing guitar and writing my own music for the last 20 years. When not riding my bike or traveling, I work on writing my own instrumental guitar songs. Over the last 10 years I have been lucky to have my music used in friends BMX video parts, Web edits and a Indie short film, as well as my own BMX videos.
Escapsim is my 3rd independent release and is 6 years in the making, living through 4 different states, hard times, good times and injuries from riding, all processed through my head and out of my guitar. Recording officially started in March over 2 weeks in my small living room converted to studio. I was extremely lucky to have my friend Jeff Livingston produce Escapism WAY beyond what I ever imagined it could be. Through Jeff, came Ron Marschall on drums (Christie Front Drive/Tierra del Fuego) and the unexpected Matt Wiser (Tierra Del Fuego) on Pedal Steel guitar, and the positive aura of the skate legend Ray Barbee on guitar. These guys contributed so much passion and talent to Escapism, it has literally left me speechless and hard to express my gratitude.
Here's where I need your help. The album is pretty much done. It's been recorded, mixed, and ready to be mastered for digital distribution and vinyl pressing. I wouldn't ask something of you with out giving back, which is why I have come up with awesome incentives and products specifically for my Kickstarter supporters.
Risks and challenges
I feel lucky that the bulk of this project is already completed so the room for risks and challenges are minimal, other than not reaching my goal. Besides that, there could be scheduling issues with the companies I have sourced for these final developments so there could be delays, but not anticipated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
