"Salvation comes in a wrecking ball, in a plume of dust, and a heart like feathers"

Hello my name is Robert Deeble.  I am a songwriter and recording artist, a Californian expatriate living in Seattle, recording in Portland to finish my 5th studio album. 

We've been tracking this album since January. It is my 5th record and the first in 6 years after taking time off to be home with my family.  Now, as I re-integrate my art back in to my life I feel this record stands to be the best and most meaningful of my career.  Its called "Heart Like Feathers".  The band and I raised the initial tracking budgets doing house concerts and serving dinner to our fans and friends.  We are now using kickstarter to finish. 

This the album documents the difficult journey spent within my artistic hiatus. Its a love story of the soul really...  A story within a plot of depression, struggle, redemption and, as Emily Dickinson writes, a hope held as a thing of feathers...

"Heart like Feathers" was recorded analogue on 2" tape at Typfoundry Studio in Portland. Engineered by Adam Selzer (Norfolk & Western, M. Ward)  and produced by Dylan Magierek (Mark Kozelek, Innocence Mission, My Morning Jacket), the results are breathtaking. My bandmates are Jeremy Dybash on drums (originally Velour 100), Jeremy Summer on bass, Neal Vickers on cello and Lili De La Mora on bgvs.

Some very special guests have contributed to this recording including: Victoria WilliamsAnnalynne Williams (Trespasser Williams), Ric Hordinski (Over the Rhine/Monk) and Stephen Hodges (drummer for T.Waits/Mavis Staples) and our own friend choir which features Daniel G. Harmann, Kate Tucker, John Vecchiarelli, Adam Selzer, Rachael Clinton and more.

We are asking your help to mix, master and manufacture. For those of you who know my past records I put as much attention to the art of the packaging as the music. This album is no exception, we plan to pre-release it in a simple but elegant letterpress format, then follow it up with a limited edition book bind.  This limited edition version also includes a bonus acoustic cd and a films by Todd Zeller and Tommy Harrington that documents the album. To do this we need to raise an "excess" of $8,000 in addition to what we have already personally funded.  The kickstart goal is much lower than our actual production requirements so please give generously even after the goal is met. ALL proceeds over goal will fund film editing, 12" vinyl and publicity to give the record the footprint it seriously deserves.

As a "thank you" we have some rewards starting with a buck. have you seen our BOX SET?  It is gorgeous.... for donations of $65 or $75 you will receive a beautiful box set with the new album alongside all prior releases and poster art spanning over 15 years. Step it up a bit more and we'll put you in the credits, cook you dinner and play your living room.

thank you, no seriously - thank you... for listening,

Robert
