6/24/16 ~ We hit our goal!  Thank you...and now a word from Derri...and Chris Taylor on stretch goals!

So here's how this works: If we hit $25k before the end of the campaign, everyone will receive a bonus ambient instrumental mix of the new album. This means if you pledge for a download or vinyl/download level, you'll receive the bonus ambient mix album via download as well. (We won't be pressing the ambient mix on vinyl.) If you pledge on any level that includes a CD, the ambient mix of the album will be included on CD with your order.

If we hit 30k before the end of the campaign, in addition to the ambient mix, everyone will receive a bonus album of covers, chosen by the fans that have pledged in the "Song O' Matic" level of this campaign. This also means if you pledge for a download or vinyl/download level, you'll receive the bonus covers album via download as well. (We won't be pressing the covers album on vinyl.) If you pledge on any level that includes a CD, the covers album will be included on CD with your order.

Let's see if we can hit those stretch goals before the project wraps on June 30th!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you start a record you have ideas floating around in your head about what it might sound like. I’m a dreamer. I tend to think in terms of color, space and sound. Lyrical adventures that transport people to another place and time. Whenever Steve Hindalong and I would start a Choir record we would talk about what kind of record we wanted to make. I would go on about this kind of sound, that kind of vibe, and at some point Steve would always look at me and say,  “Shouldn’t we write the songs first?” Of course he was right. When I talked to Steve about this record his response was “This needs to be your voice. Your stories.” So I’m going to bring in my great songwriter friends and share my stories with you. I can’t really say what kind of record it will be in the end but I’m going to share my heart with you. I can tell you it will have a lot of moody guitars! And I can tell you that I’ll give you my best. I’m looking forward to all of you hearing it and sharing this journey with me. ~ Derri

My guess is you have questions. Hopefully we have answers....

Will you be releasing the album on vinyl? ~ Yes, we will be pressing 250 copies of the album on 180g vinyl.  150 copies will be black, and 100 will be color. (Color tba.)  This is a one time pressing.

What kind/size of T-Shirts are being used in the campaign? ~ For this campaign, our manufacturer will use pre-shrunk, 100% cotton, heavyweight Fruit Of The Loom shirts in mens sizes Small through 5XL. We will also produce the design on "Ladies Cut" t-shirts in sizes X-Small through 2XL.

If we meet the goal, how long will it be before I get my order? ~ Great question. The moment we reach goal (assuming we do), everything will go into production. Our projected schedule is that Derri will turn in a finished record in December of this year, and everything will be manufactured and shipped by April of 2017.  He will be recording the album primarily in Southern California (vs his studio in Nashville) while he also cares for his Dad, and he believes this setup will allow him to meet recording deadlines.  Whatever the wait time, we promise it will be worth it.

Is there a photo of the guitar being offered from Derri's collection?

Risks and challenges

As with all Kickstarter campaigns, the biggest challenge is the prospect of not reaching our financial goal. We are ready to meet our reward obligations, but we need your help to make this happen. Funds raised over and above our goal will be used to help with production on the new record and help to pay bills. As always, we thank you for your support.
