This is my debut album. The title track demo recently spent 6 months #1 on the chart at Neil Young's website Living With War Songs.
There is nothing more exciting for a musician other than performing live than to release a collection of original songs for family, friends, and fans to playback at anytime. I started this project September 2011 and finished mixing November 2012. The song files are at the mastering studio, completed, and ready to go. The anticipation has been more than I can handle at times and I'm giddy at this moment knowing that this project is on the home stretch.
Up to this point I have completely funded this project myself. This is where you come in. I need your support with the reproduction stage. This means transferring the mastered music files to CD so that you can hear what I'm all excited about. Once you hear it, I'm sure you'll be excited as well. If you know anything about Kickstarter you already know that you are not "donating" your funds. You are pre-ordering your copy of the CD. I have created several funding levels with hopes that you'll feel comfortable with one of them. If I reach my goal, you will be debited your authorized amount. If I don't reach my goal, no one pays, the project will be postponed until I can figure out Plan B, and I will be sooooo sad:( You WANT the CD. I know you do, so you might as well preorder it so you can share in my excitement of it's release and receiving your copy in the mail or hand delivered if you're close.
Many of you have asked when I will produce a CD. Well, it's just about ready to come out of the oven. I've put a lot of love, sweat, and time into writing every song, and into every session at the recording studio. Please have a look at the funding levels, choose one and help me put this album project in your ears where it belongs.
Thank you very much and I look forward to packing a CD in a mailer with your name on it and hearing your feedback.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
This is where I list challenges/hurdles that may delay the release process.
Since all that is left to do is upload the song files to the CD manufacturer the only thing that would delay you receiving your CD is the End Of The World as predicted by the Mayan calendar. UPDATE!!! Since you are reading this, the Mayans were wrong...for now.
