Joseph Campbell once said:
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”
So, in the spirit of taking the next step in my own personal hero's journey, here I am, humbly asking for your help.
My name is Spencer Michaud. I am a singer, a teacher, a philosopher, a father and an aspiring renaissance man! For the past 10 years, I have been writing and performing songs inspired by the many detours of life, trial by fire and the stories and symbols that connect us through our collective unconscious.
Over the years I have taken great pleasure in helping my students reach their creative goals. I have been blessed to know so many talented and creative young people. While I have had success as a teacher and performer, I am now ready break through with a recording of my own. I know that by walking my talk, I will be able to inspire even more people and live in alignment with my own truth.
After many years as a solo performer, the timing was right this past year to put together a band. I have had the great fortune to find two very talented musicians, Graham Lapp on bass and Gabriel Craft on drums, that now make up Spencer Michaud & The Family Tree. I have over 10 years worth of material that I would love to share with all of you, but I realize that to be truly successful you need to start small and take one step at a time. That is why I am here asking for your support to help us make a 4-6 song EP.
We have picked out an AMAZING engineer for this project, the incredible Jim Roll, who has produced a laundry list of inspired records from artists such as Breathe Owl Breathe, Chris Bathgate, Matt Jones, Charlene Kaye and many many more. We know he is the right man for the job and will help us make this project a success.
As independent artists, we rely on your generosity to keep going. Album costs include paying for recording time, mixing and mastering, album art, printing and touring to support it. After writing out an extensive budget, we are asking to raise $5000 in one month. We know with your help we can make the best record possible and share this music with the world.
Thank you for continuing to support independent music!!
