About

Bob Goff recently wrote in his book Everybody, Always:

“We were born to be brave.”

I want to live in adventure! I want to do the things in this life I believe I was made to do. I don’t want fear and worry to squelch the opportunities I’ve been given to reach some potential. I want to run full speed ahead into the unknown with the assurance of what I do know: I have purpose. 

Want to join me? Want to come with me on an adventure? Let’s be brave together! 

This Kickstarter campaign is our next step into the world of music recording.   

In the fall of 2010 I entered into a small studio to record a song entitled Come To Me. My friend and producer, Erick Alexander, helped me make something that will forever be a blessing in my life. Over time I found out how much that song had become a blessing to others too, and I humbly learned the power of music and song all over again. Since that small project I've held onto the hope that one day I might make more music to bless the lives of those I love, and hopefully many others who will find my music. 

It’s time to be brave. It’s time to make some more music. 

I have written a collection of songs that I believe will impact and change the world for the better. I’ve found a top-notch recording studio in Edmond, Oklahoma with amazing sound technicians who retain over thirty years of experience in producing music albums for some really great artists. They also have a great team of studio musicians who will help create something wonderful. 

The songs are ready. The studio is ready. The musicians are ready. The team is in place. Now, we just need help with the funding to make this project a reality. 

As you probably already know, making strong quality music records and promoting them isn’t cheap. Everything costs money: studio time, musicians, mastering, mixing, copyrights, artwork, photos, CD printing, distributing, marketing…it all seriously adds up. More than I would have imagined. But that’s okay! It’s time to be brave. So let’s do this! 

Here is where the money is going: 

Recording: $7,5000 

Mastering & Mixing: $2,500 

CD Printing: $1,000 

Art Design & Marketing $2,000 

Launching & KS Fees $2,000

Total: $15,000

Like all Kickstarter campaigns, this is an all-or-nothing fundraiser. If we raise all of the funds needed then we get to make some music together! BUT, if all of the funds aren’t raised, then nothing is raised, and we all just go home empty handed. So, any financial donation you can make would be fabulous. 

Be sure to read through the various packages offered. Each package comes with benefits for the donator. (I actually think there are some pretty cool things offered!) 

Would you consider sharing this page on your social media accounts? Any help in spreading the word about this campaign would be awesome! 

Also, find me (Lee Langdon) on Instagram and Facebook and let's connect!

Come join me on this adventure! It’s time to be brave.

Let's do this. 

Risks and challenges

This is my first EP and major music project. So, I'm learning as I go. It's been amazing to have the help of people like Matt Stansberry who have walked this road before me, giving me advice along the way. The biggest risk I foresee are unexpected costs that will come up. I've done the best I can to budget this project with what I have learned so far. I hope you'll check back with this campaign often, especially in early August when the campaign will enter into it's final leg. Thanks for your support! This project won't take off without you!

    If you choose this option, I'm not sure how to thank you. Your support behind this EP blows me away and I want to include you on this journey in someway special. Of course you'll get all of the stuff listed so far in the other packages. Plus, here are a couple of things we could do: 1) If you are within a 6 hour drive, I'll drive to your house and perform a house concert for you and your friends. If you are over 6 hours I would probably need help with the travel part for sure, but I'm totally game. 2)Also, I'm going to list you somewhere on the CD so everyone knows how you partnered in the big way to fund this project.
