About this project

This album is going to be FUN! We've got some great music, top-notch musicians, and an excited (and exciting!) team of producers, directors, and friends that will be making this project awesome.  

We will be in the studio for two weeks with possibly a break or two for eating and sleeping. If you pitch in enough money, you will be able to be a part of the magic as it unfolds. We will be recording 13 songs during that time. Ten of those will make it to the album, and the other three will be disbursed to those of you who donate $50 or more. 

The album will be recorded by the end of the year. Then it's off to mixing, mastering, and album design. We expect to release this album on Valentine's Day, 2013 with a concert and party.

Risks and challenges

One big risk I am taking is the possibility that the album will not be completed due to lack of funding. This is why I need adequate financial support so that all of my expenses are covered during the completion of this project. Here is a breakdown of the costs:

Studio fees: 5,000 (Charles Holloman Productions)
Musicians cost: 2,000
Expenses during the 2 weeks in studio for myself, Big Shot Film, and staff: 6,000
Mixing, editing, and producing vinyls and mp3s: 2000
GRAND TOTAL: $15,000

One other challenge as a musician is maintaining authenticity while writing and recording the music on this album. I expect to overcome this challenge by allowing myself to be brutally honest during this process and allowing myself to be real and have fun during the completion of the album.
