It's been 4 years since his last release. He's got a s#@tload of new songs. So it's time for Scott Reynolds to get back in the studio!

Hey everybody, I'm Scott Reynolds, and I wanna make a new record!

I've spent the last twenty some years making records, and touring around with bands like ALL, Goodbye Harry, The Pavers, The Bonesaw Romance, The Steaming Beast, or just me and my guitar. The last record I put out was called Adventure Boy. It was produced by mega-genius Dave Fridmann (He's also produced bands like OK Go, Mogwai, Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Weezer, Thursday..... and he played in the band Mercury Rev. So I was honored to have him on board.) Plus, I enlisted the help of Flaming Lips' freakishly talented multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd, my buddies in The Pavers and Bonesaw Romance, and Colorado country killers Drag The River. I'm extremely proud of what we accomplished, but I still have a long way to go before I'm ready to say that I'm musically satisfied. And the pile of songs I've got right now, might be my favorite I've ever written.

Check out this demo of one of my new tunes that will appear on this yet untitled mega-CD. I recorded it with help of my old pal Stephen Egerton from The Descendents/ALL:

I'm asking for $15,000. I know that sounds like a lot of money (and it is) but it's actually the very minimum that I need to accomplish what I'm envisioning for myself. The recording itself is only a fraction of what I hope this Kickstarter campaign can help me do. I want to publicize this record the way no record label can right now. Label money is spread so thin in this current market, that there isn't a lot of extra cash lying around to help with publicity. So producing, say, a kickass interesting video (possibly the best way to gain a little notoriety these days) is just about impossible for a guy like me. I simply can't afford it. Also, I'd like to be able to get out and tour on a level that hasn't been possible in a lot of years, maybe even get a reasonable tour vehicle and/or some better equipment. Nothing will ever replace touring as the single most effective way to spread the word. But it can be a very expensive undertaking, especially if you haven't done it in a while. I'm dying to come to your town and play for you. So I'd love to be able to put some money toward making that happen.

But mostly, I want to have the freedom to actually dig in and create my favorite record ever without fearing that my family will go bankrupt. The industry isn't like it used to be. People don't pay for their music anymore. So it takes some seriously creative thinking for ham and eggers like me to stay afloat, while creating quality records. That's why I'm so crazy about this Kickstarter idea. If you guys get on board with me, not only will you receive whatever rewards were promised to you. But I'll also promise you the best record I've ever recorded, and my undying gratitude forever. You'll have made a friend for life. And you can never have too many friends. Right?

Anyway, Thanks for visiting my profile! .............. Scott 

Oh yeah! Also, I'm also offering paintings in some of my rewards packages. My paintings are cool! I was originally going to be an artist (went to school and everything). So check 'em out below, because you might want me to paint one for you! 

And if you can think of anything else you might want from me (that you don't see here), message me on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/scott.reynolds.1650 Anything is negotiable!
