Dear Friends, Fans, and Supporters,
Welcome to my kickstarter project! I want to finish my new CD GOOD COMPANY. Not just finish it but hit a home-run. I have been writing and recording this new CD for two years and it is almost finished. I only need to finish recording a few more basic rhythm tracks and overdubs of other instruments. Then vocals and mix it. After that it's going to be mastered and manufactured at the highest professional level.
The new songs are some of my best and with your help this CD will be too!
I plan on recording in excellent studios in New York and and Utah with great musicians. The songs are written and arranged by me. Then I go in the studio and record the basic rhythm tracks of bass, drums and piano onto multitracks. (We have unlimited tracks of recording in the computerized multitrack studio.) After we have the basic recordings the way we want them we add guitars, horns, keyboards, percussion, strings and any other sounds that each song calls for. Then my producer and I work very hard to get the perfect lead vocal. Then we ad background vocals where they are needed. Once everything is well recorded we mix it. I always think of this whole process as comparable to baking a cake: Mixing (baking) all the ingredients (recorded tracks) until it's done! Mastering is like putting the icing on. We will take the final mixes to a top mastering studio in New York City and the songs are put through state of the art mixers and sound processors. It takes a special mastering engineer who listens very closely and makes minute adjustments that bring out every frequency of sound until it shines and sounds amazing. They also put the songs in the running order for the CD with the right amount of space between songs.
The cover artwork is being done as the CD is being completed. The concept is (since the new CD is called GOOD COMPANY) the artwork will be made out of pictures taken of me with friends and fans sent in from all over the world. Once the artwork is finished the CD's are made by a high quality manufacturer.
Then the new CD will be released both physically and digitally. The CD will be available at my concerts, in stores, and worldwide through www.richwyman.com, ITunes, Rhapsody, and almost every other online source. I have a digital distributer and a physical distributer. I will also be promoting the CD in markets where I tour by TV, radio, newspapers and magazines, and other media outlets.
I am happy to be working with Kickstarter and YOU on my new CD GOOD COMPANY.
Thank you very much,
