About this project

This new project will be a collection of my favorite love songs, some that you helped me pick out on Facebook…and some of my own choosing. Some of them will be covers, songs that you might already be familiar with, and some will be originals that I’ve written. Here's a little sample...I hope you love it!

I plan on releasing the project around September 1st, 2017, with the release party in Nashville being somewhere super cool around the beginning of October. (Party invite is one of the rewards --> )

If you'd like a breakdown of the complete budget, please feel free to ask. Just shoot me an email to: mark@marksmeby.com.

If we surpass the goal, I have plans to use the extra support for creation of videos, new photos, PR & marketing costs, production upgrades, and additional Kickstarter fees. You will only be charged once we reach the goal, and if we don’t reach the goal, you will not be charged a thing!

So please pre-order my new CD today and let me know to which exclusive bundle you'd like your name attached!

Thank you so much!

Detailed information about all of my various creative projects can be found on my website at www.livehopenow.com.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

If we don't reach the goal here, it's not the end of the world. There doesn't appear to be any chance of "failure" here. I'm still making the music and you will get to hear it somehow!! The upside of this is the community aspect, building a team of people who want to help my mission, and make it their own. I'm grateful for your willingness to join us!
