Songs + The Final Countdown
As I sit down to write this we are at $8k toward our $12k goal with 8 days to go! That may sound daunting, but I think we're nearing our busiest week yet, and I'm extremely hopeful and excited!
Yesterday I was taking stock of the songs I've written so far for this project, and I was struck with how closely they parallel my spiritual journey these last couple of years. I see in each of them not just a few catchy lines or hooky melodies strung together, but riches mined from deep places, and those are the best kind. I jotted down the current list of titles (see pic) and started dreaming a little bit about how they're all going to sound and fit together on this record. CAN. NOT. WAIT. for you to hear them.
Tomorrow I'll be posting a video on Facebook about our final week, aimed at getting folks to pledge. If you see it PLEASE SHARE IT on your page, too, along with the link to the Kickstarter page. Below is a pic from that video...I like to call it "The Kickstarter Countdown: Whatever it Takes!" :-) Don't worry, it's a funny video....not as desperate as it looks. Ha!
I'll be posting another video in a couple of days introducing my producer Nate Sabin and sharing a bit about our collaborative process. I'll send you a heads up when I've posted it, I think you'll really enjoy meeting him and hearing more about how we work together.
(I hope you don't mind a few more updates than usual in this final countdown week!)
You guys, I'm humbled and grateful we're this far already. Looking forward to an amazing week.
