Hello and thank you for checking out my kickstarter campaign. I’m very excited to share something with you that has inspired greater meaning & purpose in my life. I have channeled my heartfelt passion and many years of experience as a musician, songwriter, and health coach to create something special for humanity.
2 years ago, after playing 11 shows in a row here in Key West, Florida , I decided to take a 3 day silent meditation break. During that time, while listening to one of my favorite meditation CD's: Jonathan Goldman's Ultimate OHM, I got inspired with this idea to blend the worlds of modern music and sacred healing music together, using mostly organic instruments. I've composed a double CD that leads you on a journey of well being. With pure, loving intention, each track contains specific frequencies & tones that promote peace, joy, and harmony on the mental & physical planes. Using singing bowls, guitars, cello, violin, flute, djembe, shakers, drums, bass, saxophone, keyboard and vocals, I have created an intricate soundscape for wellness.
I was planning on releasing 2 cd's but instead chose to just combine them into one. The first part of the record are 7 tracks that blend healing tones and inspirational songs together. Each song is in the key that resonates to each specific chakra and the lyrics are based around what that particular chakra represents. The music and words are intended to bring more balance and healing into the subtle energy centers of the body and it takes you on a purposeful and peaceful journey.
The second part of the albums consists of a wondrous stream of toning for all the chakras whereby I’ve created a deeply relaxing and healing audio experience intended for individual & personal use, and to enhance practices at yoga studios, spiritual centers, spas, and meditation gatherings. This music is designed to help you be just one click away from total alignment!
We are now in the final stages of mixing the record. The artwork is almost complete and we are on point to have a release date in early May! Your financial support will help fund the rest of the production and mixing as well as the mastering, duplication, and marketing of these records, so they can be shared with the world and fulfill an intention and destiny of healing. I am also planning to tour out west this summer (and maybe longer) to support the CD so anything more than what is already allocated will go to making it as successful a tour as possible!
So that you know where your investment is going, here are some of the costs I've already incurred so far as well as some of the things that still need to happen to bring this project to fruition:
- musician fees: $1250
- first recording session in New Mexico: $1000
- recording and mixing in Philadelphia: $1500
- Mastering: $600-$900
- Art and CD design: $300
- Kickstarter videos: $600
- Duplication: $1100
- Marketing: $500-$1000
- Finish Website: $800-$1000
- Tour support: $1000-???
This is a very special project for me as you will hear in the video. Although my heart still beats to Rock and Roll, I have been on a new path of creating music that is more of a healing and sacred nature. I believe it is something that the world could use and everyone can truly benefit from. Especially in these challenging times. This project is my most purpose driven contribution to the collective’s well being. I truly hope you like what you see (and hear) and you can see the healing potential this music can bring.
From my heart to yours, I thank you for supporting me and this project. I look forward to guiding you towards more peace, love, and harmony ~ one tone at a time.
I am deeply thankful for the contributing Artists who graced this record:
Risks and challenges
There aren't many risks or challenges here that I can think of. I purposely waited until the record was in its final stages to launch the campaign because of the potential obstacles and challenges that do come up (and we have had them!) We have finished almost all of the tracking except for a couple little things. Most of the mixing is done as well. We will be finishing up the mixing in the next month, then off to mastering and then duplication for n intended release date of early May. Besides any unforeseen hindrance that is beyond our control, I think we are on target to release at stated time. I do plan on hitting the road to support the record and this might be the one area that needs to logistically make sense. If there are any unforeseen setbacks, I will do whatever it takes to get the CD completed in a timely matter but I truly don't think it will be an issue.
Also, the more funds I can raise, those monies will go toward planning and implementing the tour to support the CD. I will be planning that out in the next month as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
