About

I’m an independent Christian artist seeking community support to help me fund additional tracks to an indie rock album that is already in the process of being created, all unto the glory of God. As a lone artist who is also a husband, father, parishioner, employee and a student, working toward creating this album is one of many tasks that I'm trying to balance in the good grace provided to me in Christ. This album will require me to press pause on my career (roughly 2 days per song) in order to enter the studio proper. 

Take a listen to the two tracks already completed toward this project: 

My Good Shepherd 

By the Word You Spoke 

I’ve already put in 4 days at Telegraph Recording in New Paltz, NY, working with Mike Kalajian who is an exceptional producer. Together we have tracked the above songs that will be on Second Adam's Debut EP. I already have enough money saved for 2 more songs and am scheduled to record them at the end of February; so at a minimum, without kickstarter support, Second Adam's first release will be a reality even if it is only 4 songs. I'm looking for support to get more songs on the album and help me finance some of the promotional costs for the release.

My personal budget wouldn't allow for more than another 2 songs (not this year anyway), but with your help, I can add to the album's length...there is no shortage of musical material...and if you like what your hear, lend me your hand :-). $2,000 gets me 2 more songs, plus helps to pay for the album art and promotional expenses. Every $ 1,600 above the goal amount would allow me to put 2 more songs on the album. I'd love to put a 10 song album together, but I'd be completely satisfied with getting to 6!

I’m currently a student of Theology at Lee University (via distance learning) and am growing in my knowledge of the scriptures. My ambition in my music is for ministry. My desire is that my gift opens the way for me to preach the gospel, the good news of the life found in Christ. My songs do that at differing levels but I also like to use the opportunity in performance to open the scriptures and simply read and expound them at times. I hope that at the very least, you hear the good news through these songs/campaign, namely, that Christ saves sinners. 

Risks and challenges

I am a project manager, multi-tasking is a must in my line of work. You can look me up on Linked In and check out my profile to see project's I've managed in the past; http://www.linkedin.com/pub/abram-germano/25/b41/67b

As an independent artist working toward this projects' completion, the exposure to potential problems is limited. The producer and I do all the tracking with the exception of one other friend who may be involved in the process but whose involvement is not critical to project completion.

The only issue I could see is in securing additional studio time beyond a 4 song session should my supporters enable me to do so. Telegraph Recording is extremely busy and books up fast. The good thing is that my producer is nearby to where I live and scheduling my sessions with him is convenient in that respect. He is aware of this crowd funding campaign and I'm sure will work well with me should we need to book additional days for additional tracks.
