The count down is on! Still have seven days to add to my funding level!!
Thank you to all my Backers! My project has funded! I am so excited! I can't wait to send you all the music. Mixing and Mastering of the completed songs will begin!
For anyone who comes across this just now, after funding, I am hoping to continue to raise my pledge level for the next two weeks. Any extra pledges will go to good use, as I still have horn players and a violinist to pay and record!
This album is in the final stages!! The guitar, bass, drums and lead vocals are recorded! What is left to record? A horn section on three of the songs. Violin on two of the songs. Vocal harmonies on a whole bunch. And then....mixing and mastering. I am planning to complete the instruments and harmonies to these songs while this kickstarter is up and running and as soon as it is funded.....it will be mixed and mastered. (currently I am out of money so I have to wait to mix and master until I get these pledges!!)
The musicians on this album are friends and even an old flame. The instruments are played by an eclectic mix of musicians that I have met through my life. They are all professional musicians, ranging from a stand up bass player who travels the world yearly, to an electric bass player born in New Orleans, a kick ass drummer who I heard on a cd and waited for over a year to get to town to play on half of this album, a guitar player who was my first love...let me tell you that makes for some dynamic and interesting musical moments.... and a few hidden gems that you will have to learn about from the jacket cover of the CD!!!!
Here are three songs minus the above instruments/harmonies and mastering. They have a quick mix on them. Enjoy!
