From the first time I caught Jeffrey Foucault play at the Cafe Carpe in Fort Atkinson back in 2003, I've been a serious fan. Fast forward eleven years, and you might say that I am excited about releasing an album that we worked on together, and that might be an understatement.
Back in January of this year I flew all the way out to New England from my home in Denver and drove up to Verdant Studios, set deep in the backwoods of southern Vermont. In three days, we recorded the whole album live, while stoking a wood fire in the stove, eating meals together, and avoiding the raging ice storm happening outside. This is how records are supposed to be made.
Jeffrey hired an amazing band:
SO THE ALBUM IS FINISHED, BUT...
Yes, Tulsa has been tracked, mixed, and mastered, but there is more work to be done. The next steps that need to happen and be paid for, hence, this Kickstarter:
2. Pressing/Printing Physical Copies
3. Radio Promo
4. Website Redesign
5. Graphic Design
6. New Press Photos
7. Video Production
8. Tour Support
The goal I have set is a minimum that will enable me to handle the basics for above. If we exceed that goal, well, we'll do all of those things better and for longer, and my dream of releasing a Platinum record will be that much closer. World takeover, shortly after that.
Thank you for your support in making this record! Anything you can do is greatly appreciated, from becoming an official backer, to simply sharing or passing along to friends.
Risks and challenges
Releasing music these days is always risky. The industry is ever-changing, and defining a successful career seems like aiming at a moving target. One thing remains clear, to me, however, and that is: keep making more, and better, music. After the release: touring, performing, and continuing to write. All of this brings more risk, but I feel more proud of this album than anything I have ever done, and feel great about putting my career behind it for years to come.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
