Join me as I visit different studios across the US, record with and pick the brains of musicians. Season 1: NYC, LA, SEATTLE.
Update 5/23: Join me for my final telethon Wednesday at 3:44pm PT with special guests Patrick Epino of The National Film Society and the one and only Tamlyn Tomita! We'll be broadcasting from gohnakamura.com
I had a dream about a musical travel show, kind of like Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations," but instead of being food-based, it'd be about visiting different musicians and studios... and, yeah, there'd be food too.
So, I'm starting this Kickstarter to film a web series where I go city to city, book a few days in a recording studio, invite some of my favorite musicians over, and do what I love doing most: make music.
I've been doing the solo singer songwriter thing for about 7 years now, and it feels right for me to do something a bit different for my next project... I decided to form a musical collective of my favorite musicians all over the states (and world), and make the most awesome recordings I possibly can. This is a musical exploration that will take me across the states in Season 1. I am excited and a little scared.
Each episode will include:
- interviews of different musician/songwriter/arrangers
- checking out the neighborhood of the studio (i.e. where to eat, find solace, get a drink)
- surprise guests
- a lot of music making!
I've budgeted out each session to be about 9k to record for episode. Funds will go towards paying the musicians, covering studio/engineer costs, travel, film production costs and food (interviews will be done over a meal!)
Also, I've got a few surprises in store that I hope to reveal to you if we can hit our funding goal.
Each session will be eclectic and a unique jam. I have no idea what's gonna happen, and am a bit scared, but I think that's a good sign.
I'd like to thank you for your amazing support, and I hope you can help me make this journey possible.
