About

GREETINGS!

Hey guys, Brandon Seibert here. I have some REALLY exciting news to share with you all. But before I do any thing else, I want say a huge thank you to everyone who purchased and watched and danced to and partied like crazy with my first single, #banner! It has been so amazing to feel everyone’s support and encouragement. 

NEW MUSIC!

Now for the big announcement – I am making my first solo EP! If you’re wondering what an EP is, it means that I am making a short CD with 4-6 songs that I have written that I am so excited to share with you guys. I am insanely pumped to be working with an amazingly talented producer out of Redding, California named Jeff Schneeweis, producer of Steffany Gretzinger’s latest CD “The Undoing”, as well other amazing artists including his own solo projects, which you should check out.

YOU - AN ESSENTIAL PIECE TO THE PUZZLE!

I have already sensed the favor of God on this project, and I want you to join me on this journey of showing the world what heaven is really like; what Jesus is really like. And you can do that by financially backing this project. The total projected cost of this project is $9,500. And the cool thing about this kickstarter is that you can get rewards for however much you back the project. You can see each pledge amount and the reward that correlates with said amount on the right hand side of your screen. If for some reason you would like to give money toward this project without a reward in return, just because you believe in me, you can email me a bpseibert@icloud.com. 

HERE WE GO!

This project is definitely a leap of faith for me, and I’m excited and hopeful, and nervous and peaceful all at the same time. But I trust Jesus: and if He wants it to happen, then He’ll make it happen. So thank you, thank you, thank you so much, for your support and encouragement and for considering backing this project. I encourage you to share this link with every single person you know, so that we can make this dream a reality.

THAT'S THE MAIN GIST. IF YOU WANT MORE OF THE BACK STORY. KEEP READING! 

VISION AND BACK STORY

The title of the CD will be Heaven. The concept and vision for the project came from my time in Mongolia this past year. Before I left for Mongolia, I was super excited to serve Jesus and the church … to be in a different nation talking to people about how amazing He is. But I was excited about becoming really close friends with Jesus. Well a few months in, life was getting really difficult. I was struggling with the ministry, and culture, and my relationships, and didn’t feel like I had a home or had much hope. I was crying out to God, my Father one day and said, “God, Mongolia is such a dry and weary land, at least if I was somewhere else I was passionate about I would have vision and hope for it!” I felt God gently respond to me. “Brandon, every place is a dry and weary land without Me.” I was stunned. As I sat down to think about what He said, I realized, “Oh no. That means everything in my life that I’ve hoped in is hopeless.” I begin to realize that I could have the best friends on earth, or the best family on earth, or the best job on earth, or even the greatest ministry on earth, but in the end, it would never be enough. It sounds really spiritual, but it was really kind of depressing, because I realized everything I had been holding onto was meaningless. And in the moment, I hit an ecclesiastical place that I would call “beautifully hopeless”. In this place I realized that there was only one Person that I could actually fully hope in and fully rely on and would always fulfill my desires, and always be enough – Jesus. I started a journey of learning to put all my hope in Jesus alone. And this longing grew in me: To be with Him and to see Him more than anything else on earth. I wasn’t made for this world; I was made for a better place. I was made to see Him face to face in the fullness of His glory. A place where there are no tears, no pain, no hopelessness, no wandering, no confusion, no fear. But there is fullness of life and joy and peace and destiny found at His throne. Heaven is my home. This CD will contain my thoughts, feelings, and longings about heaven and the process along the way, walking with Jesus. And, I want people to meet with Jesus through this CD, which will be full of new, fresh, electronic, electric, dynamic, vibrant music that will appeal to Christians and non-Christians alike.

My mission statement for the music I create has been this: To create music that will unify those on the inside (the Church), and draw those on the outside (the not yet Church). 

Risks and challenges

Now this project is super exciting, but I want to be realistic - the final release of the CD could take longer than I thought (July or August), there also could be unknown expenses that I didn't expect, or unforeseen circumstances might arise. Lastly, God could possibly tell me to stop production. And though I don't think He will because He has initiated it, my whole life is fully submitted to Him. I commit to do whatever it takes to fulfill all the rewards that you have contributed towards.
