Music is an incredible force! I have been driven by this force ever since I was 3 years old. There I was, bouncing around in my car seat to the sound blasting out of the radio; that was it for me, I was hooked! Fast forward a few years and here I am now; a performer in my own right, hoping to touch people the same way that music and musicians have touched my soul over the years.
To me, music is the great uniter. The same song can be listened, owned and loved by anyone, rich or poor, English speaking or not. Music transcends, and the wonderful thing about it is that the same song can mean so many different things to so many different people.
Over the years people have asked many times during my live performances or after listening to my demos, "When are you going to make your album?" Well, my friends, the time has come. I'm finally recording my DEBUT ALBUM! Through Kick-starter, I am hoping to raise enough money to finish recording my first full-length album. I have been working really hard to finish writing and assembling what I believe will be a record that touches the masses.
The songs on this album are thought provoking, funny, and sometimes just down-home funky! I recently recorded a song called, "Penny For Your Thoughts" and through friends in NYC I was able to put together a video to go with the song. I truly hope you like what you see and hear. If you feel so moved, I would love to have your support in accomplishing my goal to finish and release my debut album! Thank you for taking the time and interest to hear my story and see my new video.
Peace and love to you all,
Risks and challenges
The obstacles I'm facing right now are really quite simple in the scheme of things. My recording is 50% finished. After I finish recording all that is left is mixing, mastering, and the album artwork. Upon completion I plan to meet with record labels, artist management, and booking agencies I already have contacts with. Right off the bat there is great potential of getting the ball rolling which could launch my career.
This is where your funding comes in to play. That is also why I am only asking for the small amount of $5000 for this record. Obviously, I would love to exceed my goal as there are other expenses I am paying for out of pocket. There is also the possibility I will incur other costs I wasn't expecting. I will be more than grateful to each and every supporter that helps me reach my goal of $5000! Thank you once again for giving me your time and caring about my album's success!
