I started writing songs at a young age, and began recording some of them when I was about fifteen. I’d lock myself in my room with a microphone and an old Macbook for a few days, and then I’d emerge with an album that I’d offer up for free on Noisetrade. After a handful of EPs, this process hasn’t really changed. As I've grown as a songwriter, these songs have also slowly started to grow a following, and the last two albums have been downloaded by thousands of people from all over the world. It’s been a dream of mine for quite some time to record a full-length album that has been professionally produced and mastered, and to explore where these songs can go creatively. I can’t do it alone. With your support, we can make this dream a reality, for a release set for late Spring. I will be titling the album Promised Land, and it will contain a collection of my favorite work from the past two self-produced albums, paired with new songs that I’m excited to share.
I have the incredible opportunity to work with Everett Hardin, who has agreed to produce and engineer this album. Everett and his wife Caroline are also sought-after string players, and have toured and recorded with some of my favorite artists, including John Mark McMillan. A collection of incredible musicians will be creating this album by my side, and they also happen to be some of my best friends. We're recording the album in the brand-new Harvest House Studio in Boone, NC.
If $11,000 sounds like a lot of money, well, that's because it is. But for making the album that we're after, it really is a great deal. I promise. What we raise together will cover the carefully estimated costs of recording, mixing, mastering, duplication, Kickstarter prizes and credit fees, email marketing, shipping, and other fees.
If you're unfamiliar with the Kickstarter platform, we either raise all funds and reach our goal or receive nothing.
We have some great rewards in store for those who want to support this project. We'll have early download codes, physical copies, house shows, a custom video, handwritten lyrics, and artwork...
Risks and challenges
I'm human, and I'll be working with humans throughout this process...but I promise you my very best.
