YoUr LiFe. YoUr FiGhT.

I am so excited about my new album - "Me Against Myself." My hope with this album is to provide a powerful sound that moves people to re-focus their thoughts and accept themselves for all that they are. To inspire people to take responsibility for the course of their lives.

ThE aLbUm

This album explores the web of inner struggles and provides a lens for viewing how these internal conflicts can affect interpersonal relationships.  The sound fluctuates between melodic, powerful melodies and soft, gentle rhythms.The theme, "Me Against Myself" gives a solid platform to that sound. 

Check out one of the songs from the album titled, "Lackadaisical"

"My thoughts are the angels and demons of my life" - Me Against Myself - TKusitor

Life is about discovery, joy, love and connection not regret, blame, guilt and self-pity. I have learned that you can either allow disconnecting feelings to consume you or you can embrace the unknown.

"And I don't know where I'm going, but it's never stopped me from going far. This unknowing has never slowed me down before." - The Hitchhiker - TKusitor

Check out another one of the songs from the album, titled "Old Friend."

So VeRy ClOsE...

This album is set to be released on 22 June 2013.

Album Release Concert
Album Release Concert

I need some help to make sure I have an actual album ready to be released at the 'album release' concert rather than just a promise of one. After the concert I will then be able to ship a copy to anyone that helps fund this project and is unable to attend the concert. They will also be available on my website along with past albums (Miracles Happen, Tengzug Youth Choir).

What's Left to Make this Happen:

  • Production - $550.00
  • Studio Time (final vocals) - $150.00
  • Duplication - $350.00
  • Mixing/Mastering - $350.00
  • Copyright - $100.00

GRAND TOTAL: $1500

I want this album to clearly portray the powerful message within each song. This album is a very ambitious project and meticulous attention to detail is critical to create the perfect sound.

I am also the founder of 'PadaLily Music.'  For samples of my music from my first album, 'Miracles Happen,' go to http://www.padalilymusic.com.

Risks and challenges

I have encountered many emotional and financial challenges with the production of this album, but I feel so strongly about the songs on this album that I am doing everything I can think of (including this kickstarter project page) to ensure that I am able to share this album by 22 June 2013.

I believe in the power of music and it's ability to shape lives through a 'melody pure and sweet - twisted in harmony - building our song over all these years.' - Old Friend - TKusitor
