My first album - "FIRST THINGS LAST" - will be released on 1/11/11, and YOU can help bring it into the world...
I've concocted what I hope will prove to be an incredibly exciting and successful pre-order/album-funding campaign, here on Kickstarter. Think you can you give me 5 minutes of your time and a donation of even just 5 dollars? If so, read on and help me KICK IT. You'll be able to get a download of my entire record before it premieres in NY at Lincoln Center American Songbook Series and in London on the West End in January. LANCE HORNE: FIRST THINGS LAST will be released on Yellow Sound Label/Warner Brothers, and features my songs sung by a slew of amazing artists including Alan Cumming, Amanda Palmer, Cheyenne Jackson, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Ricki Lake, Meow Meow, Lea DeLaria, Alexandra Silber. But wait, there's more! From the West End: Aneurin Barnard, Julie Atherton, Paul Spicer, Emma Williams, and Hannah Waddingham!!!
One would think with the combined Tonys, Oliviers, and Emmys alone, the record would just make itself, but even with a lot of elbow grease and the tightest budget, it’s going to cost $15K to properly cover recording, musicians, design, manufacturing, and distribution. So, I’m going to be raising the funds here with the help of friends like you. I've crafted lots of unique incentives for all of the supporters; secret tracks, unpublished sheet music, and even a private concert featuring guests from the album, where I'll premiere a song written just for you. This album is a decade in the making, bringing together artists from around the world, and it’s really a dream about to come true, so please, help (and join) the dream team as we head into the studio!
