About this project
I am so excited to begin recording this new record! It will be full of new, original material and recorded with my amazingly talented touring band. Recording an album is an expensive, and intensive endeavor these days. Record labels aren't like they used to be, and many artists are footing the bills themselves, which is why we're so thankful for platforms like Kickstarter to really tap in to our grassroots fan-base. If this campaign is successful, the money will be spent to cover the recording and release costs which will include:
- 8 Days of Studio Time for the recording
-Engineering/Mixing/Mastering the Album
-Hiring a Producer to help the process go smoothly
-Remote engineering and studio time for SPECIAL GUESTS!
-Album artwork, graphic design, and packaging
-Various other incidentals that I haven't even thought of yet!
As you can imagine these things add up quickly even when you don't run into anything unexpected. Thank you for taking the time to read this, for watching our video, and for considering donating to the arts and personally helping me realize a dream. THANK YOU!!!!
