About

HISTORY

In December of 2010 I released my first album Prometheus. It was a highly conceptual album based on the stories of Prometheus, an amazing character out of Greek mythology. I also released a companion piece to the album called Epimetheus. The companion piece was a short and abstract electronic EP.  Since the release of that project I have been working on finding my next great inspiration, which I found in life itself.

ABOUT LP2 (short for "second album")

Since finding the center piece for my next album I have been writing a very personal and light concept album on life, death, religion and love. Because of the delicate and personal nature of the music, I know that I cannot appropriately and efficiently capture the energy and emotions of the performances with the low-price equipment and cheap post-production methods I am able to afford and have used in the past. I want to do the material justice and create something moving and unique. I want to create something that people can connect to and feel. This project is important to me and I want it to be important to someone else as well.

FUNDING

With the funding I will be upgrading some of my equipment, including my microphones, my microphone pre-amps, my interface, and a few very necessary studio additions. I am going to be recording in places from local studios to old but beautiful churches (with amazing sound that cannot be recreated elsewhere). With nicer equipment I will be able to capture these performances in ways I couldn't before.

I will also use the money on post-production costs. This includes mixing and mastering. In the past I have used cheap services that have severely degraded the sound quality and overall value of my recordings. With this money I will be able to use professional services and retain the quality of the music.

Any surplus funds will go towards distribution, CD printing, or touring.

RELEASING THE ALBUM

When finished the album will be released in all major online distribution stores (iTunes, Amazon, etc). Physical copies will also be released at the same time. Just prior to and following the release I will begin playing a string of shows to promote the album.

LINKS

All updates on the album's progress can be tracked on Twitter (www.twitter.com/colbybmiller) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/colbymillermusic). I will be posting pictures, video and audio to share my experiences while preparing and recording the album. Backers of the project will receive more in depth and highly detailed progress on the album.

You can also hear Prometheus, Epimetheus, and other works by me on Bandcamp (www.colbymiller.bandcamp.com).
