I hope that you can experience life more fully after listening to this music.

Two and a half years ago I began working on my first full-length album, entitled "A Narrative."  I wanted to create an instrumental album about working through a problem.  It ended up becoming a concept album based on the flow of a story.  No story in particular, just the concept of a novel.

For the past year or so I've been working on my next full-length album.  This album is going to be a bit different than my first album.  It's going to be BIG.  This means that I've been incorporating a lot more instruments, professional musicians, and better recording gear, as well as the songs themselves sounding much more full and lively compared to my first album.  I've been trying to push myself to write/create music that I've never done before.  It's been a challenge, but I am so excited about these songs.

I wrote/recorded my first album basically by myself in my apartment which was very cheap to do.  As a result of the album being a bit bigger, there are costs that are necessary to make it sound as good as it can be.  Some of the costs are paying musicians to record on the album, having someone else do the final mastering, web designers, videographers, graphic designers for the album artwork, artists for prints, production of vinyl copies of the album, etc.

I've already done a lot of work on my own and have invested quite a bit of money in to this project.  But I need your help in order to finish this album and get it out there for people to listen to.  I need an additional $3000 to finish the project.

Basically this Kickstarter is a pre-sale and if you pledge $10 or more, you'll be reserving a copy of the album that will be sent to you before it comes out on iTunes, Amazon, etc.  There are a lot of other goodies that I'm really excited about and can't wait to produce.  Check out the column on the right to see what kinds of options there are for this Kickstarter.  

Kickstarter works on an all-or-nothing basis.  So if I don't raise at least $3000 before the 30 days are over, then I will not receive any of the money.  Credit cards will be charged only if the Kickstarter is fully funded after the 30 days.  The goodies will be mailed to you sometime after the funds have been received (there will be a notification from Kickstarter asking for your address so I can ship stuff).   Shipping is included in the pledge.

Thank you for supporting the music.  It means the world to me that you would listen to the music and to give your support.  You can check back here, my new website (anewnormalmusic.com), or the Facebook page for updates.  If you'd like to listen to some of the music I've already produced you can go to the Bandcamp page.  You can check out a video on Youtube that I made describing my heart behind the music.
