We have a six student high school music class that is writing and recording their own CD here at Oakdale Christian Academy. They have named themselves "33 A.D." We are developing the songs through the middle of February, producing and recording through March and April with the final version to be released in May 2011.

Please watch the video to hear one of the potential cuts for the album - an original written by students from the class. In the video you also get to meet each of the students.

We need your help to do this! Help fulfill a dream of these students! We are looking for funding to help cover costs of some studio equipment and the duplication of the final CD. Any extra funds over our goal will go right into equipment for the music program here at Oakdale Christian Academy. Also, any gift over $50 will have a portion that is tax deductible as a charitable gift.

Jason Johnston is the teacher and producer. He has over 10 years of experience teaching, recording and producing albums, including his own. This will be a very student directed project in terms of content and musical expression, with their teacher making sure the project gets finished in good quality and released.

Please encourage these students with your support and stay in touch here at kickstarter as well as at the links below. We'll be posting previews and news as the project develops.
