Hi! Thanks so much for taking the time to check this out. My name is Nate Sabin and I’ve been making music for as long as I can remember. I’ve done a little bit of solo recording, but I gave up the dream of being a rock star a long time ago. Much of my work has been focused on producing records for other artists, however, all along the way I’ve been a worship pastor at my local church in St. Paul, Minnesota. Leading worship is my heart.
A few years ago, I took a break from producing. I felt a strong need to step back and take a breath. When I did, new songs immediately came to fill the void—mostly songs of praise and worship.
For the past couple of years, I’ve been really excited about getting my songs in churches who could benefit from them. A lot of time has been invested developing resources that make it easy to plug the songs into a worship repertoire. Out of the desire to share this music, Catch the Wind Ministries was born.
The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to complete a beautifully recorded collection of 10 or more original worship songs. In addition to the general release versions of the songs, there will be alternate mixes and sheet music resources to serve worship leaders and churches who want to incorporate the music into their repertoire.
I’ve always felt that art should be funded and facilitated by the people who want to see it come into the world. Crowdfunding is great because it gives people who want to hear the music the chance to say, “Hey, we want to hear this.” That gives people like me an extra sense of confidence that the music is going to go somewhere once it's created.
Here's the deal with Kickstarter: if we don’t get all the funding we need as listed on our goal, we won’t get any of the funding. It’s a protection for you, so if the project’s not funded, none of your money will be spent. But it’s also important for me to remind you that in order to complete the project, we have to get the full budget.
Here’s how the money will be used:
• Completion of the recordings
• Professional mixing & mastering
• Artwork & packaging
• Shipping supplies & postage
• Amazon/Kickstarter Fees
• Promotional materials
If we exceed the goal that we set for this project, extra money will go to make this project better and potentially launch future projects as well. Catch the Wind Ministries is going to continue. I have dozens of songs that we will begin working on immediately if the funds are available.
I’m so very grateful for your contributions, but want you to know that these are not just donations, they are investments. You get something back. No matter what you choose to invest, there is a reward. Look to the right side of the page for all of the really great options.
Thank you for being a part of this. It really is in my heart to get this music out, and it means so much that you would help me see this project through. I don’t take any contribution lightly. I'm so grateful.
Risks and challenges
I've been making records for other people for something like 30 yrs. I know how to bring a project home in a timely and excellent manner. Sometimes delays are unavoidable, but I'm confident that I can find creative solutions to minimize any problems.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
