Update #2

30 Days to Go: September's The Time To Get In Gear!

1 comment

Hi All,

August was a hot, lazy month - though I was on the road for most of it. Travels in Mexico, Denmark, and Latvia (!) were exciting, grueling, rewarding. Now I'm back in NYC and attention is being turned to Unsung Heroes, its release and this Kickstarter project coming to a successful conclusion.

Even in August, backers have been coming in at a steady rate, but with 30 days to go, we still have more than $3000 to raise. So please, y'all keep spreading the word!

It's occurred to me that a lot of the offers for the project are oriented towards musicians and the regular fan may feel a little left out. So I'll be putting up a couple of new offers in the next few days that will be more oriented to the non-player, goodies wise. (Any existing backers who see one of these offers and wish they could have signed up for it instead of the one they have, get in touch with me personally and we'll work something out).

In other great news, I've gotten the "beta" download version of Vol.1 together enough to offer for sale as an advance version. I'm using a platform called Bandcamp to distribute it while I get the Hollistic MusicWorks site prepared for action. You can check it out at: http://brianlynch.bandcamp.com/

(BACKERS: This might make you a little antsy. Contact me through comments or directly and I will hook up something for you to listen to until the Kickstarter project's concluded.

Again, let's keep spreading the work and hope we can bring this baby home!

Best,

Brian
