Pillar of the Sun is the sixth, full-length solo album from North Carolina based singer/songwriter Mike Garrigan.

The albums Voyage of the Malamander & The Return of Spring left quite a few songs on the cutting room floor.  Pillar of the Sun is a collection of outtakes from these two albums--dressed up, mixed up, and presented in its own unique way.  

In the digital age, internet distribution via web-based stores is a cinch. As convenient and prevalent as digital distribution is, for us, there's nothing like a printed CD with artwork. The physical CD is how we sell music at shows. Media opportunities (like album reviews, concert announcements, bios, etc..) are also usually CD dependent.

The purpose of this Kickstarter project is to raise enough funds to print a CD. We would also like to raise some money for some basic promotional items (t-shirts, web stuff, and posters). The cost of designing, manufacturing, and promoting an eco-friendly CD package is around $1500.

Thank you for your help!
