UPDATE: We're almost at my goal, but I need your help to stretch it out!! Remember, what I listed was a bare minimum for getting this project done - if you want more tracks, better music, and even more jaw-dropping Knox Hill sounds, then please contribute! Be my music label, and help me stay independent. The more I receive means the more I can pump into promotion and recognition with this project, so you're not just the only ones who hear it! Join my exclusive Backer Zone where I'll be gifting special sneak-peeks & materials for supporters only, and take this journey of a new CD release with me..

The Samurai X EP.

Music has no limits. It can take you anywhere you allow it, and if you're open to it, it can even change who you are. Music is unfamiliar with the words "no" and "can't." Instead it is an echo, a reflection of words like "yes", "do it", and "achieve.' At it's core, music is the definition of an artist.

I started with a dream. I made that dream into a vision, and now I'm turning that vision into a reality. It's been a long, winding, often difficult road, but the reason that I'm still here is because of the dream I started with. This is the release that I have been waiting for..

12 tracks. High octane vocals. Pulse pumping instrumentals. It's time to take the music of Knox Hill to the next level, and I need you to do it. All of my efforts have been leading up to this point, and this CD is the definition of everything that I am. Frankly: it is Knox Hill, and more importantly, it answers the question: who is Samurai X?

 Why should you support? Music hast the power to change. I'm not a conscious rapper, but I believe in hip hop's roots of giving back to the community, of being a music for the people. For all of life's struggles, for motivation to keep going, for a little spark, and enjoyment, that's why my music exists. If you really want to know why you should contribute - the message is in the music:

Gifts

I've done two successful projects on Kickstarter before, and that success is an example of how much people believe in my vision and what I'm doing. This time around, I'm giving back to the fans, and there are more exciting gifts here than ever before. I've listened to what you guys want, and now, for Kickstarter only, you'll have access to opportunities no one else will. Check the right hand side for all of the exclusives, and see what interests you.

Risks and challenges

There are risks and challenges to any CD project. The biggest are time and money. It's all about fundraising, and the money you provide goes to studio costs, mixing tracks, getting the right artwork, publishing and releasing the CD. It's a long, tough process, but one that I've been through before.

I know what it takes to make an album, and I know the time and man-power involved. It's not easy, and delays do happen because of how many steps are involved. But I am confident that I can have this album packaged and ready in a reasonable amount of time, and I'm looking forward to keeping you guys updated and in-tune with each step along the journey!
