Be one of Josh Jennings Band of Friends & support their BRAND NEW RECORD of irresistible shades of awesomeness. Love to Kickstarter!
HI, MY NAME IS JOSH JENNINGS, I'M MAKING MY BEST ALBUM YET AND WOULD LIKE YOUR SUPPORT.
I am a working musician. I play in living rooms, church basements, dive bars, coffee shops, as well as in theaters, at outdoor music festivals and old-school social halls.
It’s totally okay that you don’t know me. I am working on changing that with this project. Thanks to the interwebs, there is an emerging middle class of musicians that have found a way to have a sustainable career outside corporate entertainment. We are watching our music spread like a mighty river through digital media and it is amazing. We make music because we need to. Because we live and breathe songs and we need so much to share those songs with you.
I am launching this Kickstarter campaign in the hopes that you’ll help me make an incredible record.
We are going to be recording in Winterwood Studios in Eureka Springs, AR and we are starting soon, (January 2014)! Everyone who backs this album will get regular updates from the studio (just for the people backing this project). If we are excited about something, YOU, our record label (and newly found family) will hear about it as it's happening. These are all new songs, recorded with the utmost care, played by some seriously amazing musicians, and made with a commitment to GOOD ART.
We’ve priced it low in the hopes that you’ll tell your friends and remind them that it’s good karma to support musicians.
Here's the budget:
$2,500 for the recording studio & engineer
$500 for mixing & mastering
$1,000 to print CDs
$500 to print merchandise
$500 to design the art for the record
Thank you for being a part of the beautiful machine that makes it possible for me to keep making music for you.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Making a record is a challenging process. Not only is it very costly and time consuming, it also requires a ton of passion and creative energy. One will never know how the record will sound before the tracking begins. We have excellent songs and some arrangement ideas in place, as well as stellar musicians. But the finished product is a great unknown at this point.
The final unknown aspect of this process is what will happen with the record once it is released and set free into the world. It may be something that we carry on compact disc and vinyl from show to show and sell to audience members who enjoy our performances. Or it may be something that tons of people hear and love and talk about and tell others to check out. There is no way of knowing. One can plan all they want. But the record will have a life of its own. We will need to make decisions on the fly about how to proceed once people hear it. Hopefully the latter happens, in addition to the former. We will find out soon!
