EDEN KAI - 2nd Album Project

¥1,597,683

このページをご覧いただきまして、ありがとうございます。EDEN KAIです。ハワイでギタリスト/ウクレレ奏者/シンガー・ソングライターをやっております。

Thank you for visiting my Kickstarter page. My name is EDEN KAI and I am a guitarist, ukulele player, and singer-songwriter.

14歳の時に父親の仕事の関係で八王子からハワイに引越し、新しい環境に馴染むことが難しかった自分は、YouTubeを見ながらひたすらギター、そしてウクレレを練習に明け暮れる日々でした。

When I was 14, I moved to Hawaii from Hachioji, Tokyo because of my father’s job. It was difficult for me to adapt to this new circumstance, so the only thing I got really hooked on was practicing guitar and ukulele by watching YouTube.

たまたま高校2年生の時に出演した2005年のハワイ州の音楽大会「Brown Bags To Stardom」で自作の「Beautiful Stars」というギター・インスト曲で優勝することが出来ました。その頃から自分は音楽の道というものを意識し始め、ハワイで2枚の自主制作のインスト・アルバム『Touch The Sky』と『Feel The Earth』をリリースし、『Touch The Sky』はハワイの音楽賞ナホク・ハノハノ・アワードでノミネートされました。

When I was in 10th grade, I won the “Brown Bags to Stardom” statewide talent competition in Hawaii with my original guitar instrumental composition called “Beautiful Stars”. After this, I seriously started to think about my career as a musician and I released two instrumental albums called “Touch the Sky” and “Feel the Earth” in Hawaii. “Touch the Sky” was nominated for Best Instrumental Album at the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards known as the Hawaiian Grammy Award.

2016年にはNetflixの『テラスハウス アロハ・ステート』に出演して、音楽とは違う経験をする事が出来、人生の勉強になりました。そのお陰で昨年には日本デビュー・アルバム『Music For You』もリリース出来て、様々な日本の音楽イベントに出演し、皆さんに僕の音楽を生で聴いて頂く機会を持てました。

In 2016, I appeared in a Netflix reality program called “Terrace House Aloha State” and had a great experience in addition to music. Because of this appearance, I could release my Japan debut album “Music for You” in 2017, and I had a lot of opportunities to show up and perform at many music events in Japan.

現在、2ndアルバムを制作しています。今年の夏の終わりにはリリースを目指しています。皆さんに成長したEDEN KAIの音楽をお届けできるように、音源制作の毎日です。

Currently I’m working on my 2nd album which I am aiming for release at the end of this summer. To show my improvement, I’m working on composing and practicing music every single day.

新しいアルバムは日本語の楽曲、英語の楽曲、カバー曲やギター、ウクレレのインスト曲など収録したバラエティーに富んだ内容を考えており、日本でレコーディングを行います。既に国内外の素晴らしいミュージシャンの方に今回のアルバム制作のサポートをお願いしています。今回Kickstarterに参加して、以下のように、このアルバムの制作費、そしてアルバム発売後のプロモーション資金を募りたいと思います。

My new album will include a variety of Japanese songs, songs in English, cover songs, and guitar & ukulele instrumentals. I will record all songs in Japan. I have already asked great musicians not only from Japan but also from abroad to support this project.

ご支援頂いた資金の使用用途

● レコーディング・スタジオ代とレコーディング・エンジニア費用

● プロデューサー、ミュージシャンへの報酬

● ミキシングとマスタリングの費用

● アルバムのアートワーク・デザイン

● Kickstarterの参加費用とリワードの発送費用

Your contribution to this project will help me with these following fees:

ご支援頂いた方には、特典付きアルバムをお届けする他に、ノベルティ・グッズ、スペシャル・ライヴご招待や、皆さんの元に伺ってライヴ・パフォーマンスさせて頂く特典などをご用意致しました。

For those who supported my project, I offer you a variety of rewards such as novelty goods, invitations to my special live performance, and for me to go perform at your place.  

ハワイに住んでおり、渡航費もかかるので、すぐに皆さんに会いに行ける状況ではありません。ただ、「ハワイ」にはどうしてもこだわりたく、今回制作している歌には、ハワイでの暮らしを歌ったものや、ハワイに住んでいるからこそ感じる自分の想いを歌っている歌もあります。

Because I live in Hawaii and the costs of traveling, it is not a situation where I can visit everyone soon. However, I am creating songs mostly based on my life in Hawaii. In fact, the new album includes songs singing my own feeling that I felt living in Hawaii.

皆さんのご支援で、この2ndアルバムを完成させ、早く皆さんの元へ新しい音楽をお届けに日本に行きたいです。そしてEDEN KAIを末永く応援して頂けるように精進していきたいと考えています。

With your support, I will be able to successfully complete this 2nd album and would like to come to Japan and your countries soon to deliver new EDEN KAI music to everyone. And I will be totally committed and devoted to continuing creating music for you to enjoy. I sincerely appreciate all your support.

どうぞ宜しくお願いいたします!

Thank you so much!

EDEN KAI

Risks and challenges

アルバム発売は2018年9月末を目指して進行していますが、どうしてもスケジュールが少し後ろ倒しになる可能性もゼロではありません。その場合は速やかにバッカーの皆さんにお知らせすると同時に、アルバム制作進行状況も定期的にアップデートするようにいたします。また、バッカーの皆さんの元へ伺って演奏するリワードに関しては、スケジュールを相談させていただきながら日程を決めさせていただきたいと思います。

I’m planning to release the album in September 2018, but there is a possibility of delay. In that case, I will announce to all of my supporters as quickly as I can and will keep sharing progress status updates.
Also, for the reward that I visit your town and play, I would like to arrange the schedule with consultation.
