About 3 years ago, I had the chance to record my first project called Crying Out to You. It was a beautifully vulnerable experience that I found was alot like publishing my journal. That vulnerability was so worth it, though. And now, after traveling and singing for 3 years as a solo artist and with Country Singer Collin Raye (who I sang with on his first hymns record called His Love Remains), I'll thrilled to get back to it and record a new album with all new material exploring a topic I am passionate about: Overcoming our fears. See below for more on that :)
Three important things to note about this new album:
1. GOAL: There is a running theme in the lyrics of this new album that I think we all have experienced at some point: the challenge of overcoming our fears. Fear of love, fear of loss, fear of risk, fear of being humiliated, fear of failure. The list goes on. And this fear binds us.
Ironically, I've been delaying this project for over a year because I was afraid. Believe me, I know the feeling of fear. And my hope and my goal is to share this music with as many people, parishes, retreats, etc. as possible because I believe in my heart that fear doesn't have a place in our lives; how many times does God tell us not to fear?! And yet our fear is real. If we can learn to choose against this fear, then we can have the joy and happiness I believe we were made for.
2. WHERE'S THE MONEY GOING? The biggest expense is studio time and sound engineers, followed by paying musicians, album design, printing of the physical cds, and other smaller expenses that go into a project like this.
3. INFLUENCE: I've been heavily influenced by Folk, Jazz, Broadway, and Classical Crossover music (Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, etc.); you will hear those influences in this new album!
Risks and challenges
If the studios I am considering are booked, then it could slightly delay the rewards fulfillment process, but not by much. If there are any delays, you will be notified immediately!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
