My name is Ethan Luck and I'm making a Reggae/Ska album! That music is one of my first loves and I'm excited to be back writing music that brings so much joy to my life and hopefully yours.

Many of you know me from some of the bands I've been in before like Relient K, The O.C. Supertones, Demon Hunter and The Dingees. I've been touring and recording music for over 20 years and most recently, I have been playing with other artists as a hired gun, releasing solo material and I am a 100% indipendent artist. I've chosen Kickstarter to help fund this next album because there will be a lot more involved, since it will be my first full length record! There are obvious costs involved with making a record. The studio, producer, mixing, mastering, extra musicians, album packaging...etc. My goal is to record at The Smoakstack in Nashville, with my friend and producer, Paul Moak. I want these songs to reach as many people as possible and make the best album I can.

I'm thrilled that you would come see what I'm doing over here and hope you get involved to make these songs I've been writing a reality. To celebrate the launch of this, you can download a brand new demo for free called "You're Only Gonna Get So Far"

Risks and challenges

Since I am an independent artist, I will be doing all of this work by myself. I have many outlets to promote it (Social Media, Podcasts..etc) and hope you might get involved and help spread the word. If this project gets funded, I will be putting all my time into making this record and getting all the perks to you as fast as possible.
