We are so excited to introduce our new band The Homestead. Here's a little bit about who we are and what we are up to.
The Homestead is a collective of worship leaders and musicians that began leading worship for the local church in the greater Houston area. We started playing together in 2012 and we knew there was something different with this group. A new sound, a new spirit. It was special. After a few years of leading worship for different communities we started feeling the need to write songs for the people we were leading. There were things that we wanted to say in worship that weren't currently being said, so we just started by writing the songs that we felt needed to be sung.
Last year we felt that the time was coming to record these songs that we had been writing, and that we wanted to actually become an official band so that we could expand the reach of our music and our ministry. The Holy Spirit has been really active through the whole process, from the songwriting to the naming of the band.
We will be recording a live CD/DVD of our original music and a couple hymns. It will be all acoustic, all live, and all real. It might not sound as "perfect" as a studio album, but that's the point. We want it to be a real worship experience. We want you to be able to feel like you're in the room with us. It will have an intimate vibe, but one that's full of life, full of real worship offered to our amazing God and Savior Jesus Christ.
The money raised will pay for recording, mixing, mastering, video production, disc manufacturing, and distribution. Any money raised above and beyond the goal will go to the miscellaneous costs that come from running a band such as marketing, graphic design, additional recordings and videos, website, etc. Thank you so much for your support, it means the world to us!
Risks and challenges
Launching a band and recording a CD has its risks and its challenges, but we really believe in what we are doing, and we know that with such an incredible community of support we will be able to share God's love and beauty with the world through our music. We hope that you will join us in making this dream come true!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
