(PROJECT PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRISTINA HUCK)
I want to start this project off first by saying a very very special THANK YOU to everyone who helped me create my soul album Bless The Soul recorded at Tweed Studios in Oxford, MS!!! I would not be where I am without your help!!! Recording that record was truly a dream come true for me!!!
I have a MAJOR update now in my life...most of you may know by now, but a lot of people may not know I am moving away from Mississippi at the end of December. I will be pursuing my dream in music in Philadelphia, PA and living in Wilmington, DE. I really wanted to do a personalized video for this project but I honestly would have been a little emotional in the video and decided a personal letter of my project goals would be better. I have joined up with the Philadelphia Songwriters Project and will have my first showcase on January 21st, 2014. I have also joined the Philadelphia chapter of The Recording Academy to help me with tools, networking, etc. in my music career. With my mom growing up in Greenville, my dad growing up in Brookhaven, my brother and sister living in Jackson for so long, myself growing up in Tupelo and living in Oxford for most of my life, Mississippi has been my whole life...I will never forget my home, my family, my friends...this album is for you...
NOW FOR THE PROJECT!!! IN 30 DAYS!!!
ONE MORE GOOD NIGHT: Its hard to describe in words what Mississippi has meant to me over the years, and what all my experiences have taught me. To everyone who ever believed in me this album is for YOU. The title track "One More Good Night" is a very personal goodbye song written about my time here in Mississippi. Its my sophomore album release and one that I have been really wanting to put together for a long time. Its a 7 song singer-songwriter/folk/country album that once again I will not be able to release without your help...
THIS TIME for everyone that pledges to help me and be a part of this project, I really wanted to work together with you and help find ways to give back to others in the Philadelphia area where I will be moving. So with your help I will donate any amount pledged over the goal amount to MUSICIANS ON CALL.
Musicians On Call has partnered with WXPN, the nonprofit public radio station for the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. This is such an awesome opportunity!!! They make such a difference in peoples lives by bringing live music to the bedsides of patients at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, and the Philadelphia VA Medical Center in West Philadelphia.
There are a lot of very very talented Oxford musicians on this record that will be named in the future updates of this project! This album is currently being recorded at RNN STUDIOS in Oxford, MS by Nate Robbins.
I WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR HELP!!! I know it can be tough during the holidays, and I certainly understand if you are not able to help with my project. If you are not able to help I simply ask you to keep me in your thoughts and maybe help me spread the word of this project by text, email, facebook, twitter, etc. Anything will help!!! Once again I am trying to pay for as much of this project personally as I can, but I need your help with the rest! All money pledged will help me make this project possible to cover recording costs, musicians, production, mastering, album manufacturing, shipping, etc. PLEASE remember this project will not be funded unless I reach my goal in 30 DAYS!!! I truly hope everyone has a happy holidays, a merry Christmas, and a happy new year!! God bless!!
