Over the years I've played in many bands, taught music, recorded musicians, and have worked to help others achieve their goals. It's been incredibly rewarding, I've had a lot of fun, and have learned a lot in the process. However, now it's time to set out on my own path. It is time to live, create, breathe and believe.
This new adventure is about putting art into the world for others to enjoy and feel inspired by. No matter where this path may lead me in the epic journey of life, my goal is to dream big, be present, share my gifts and what I've learned, and always, without exception, keep smiling.
The Come Alive Project
The gears are set into motion as I'm eager to complete my first solo album release titled Come Alive (planned release July 2017). It will be a six song EP that features my originals with a couple eclectic covers. I have already planned two followup EPs to Come Alive and together, all three albums are meant to be a complete collection. The music is already written and I've started recording. It's now just a matter of finishing the process by investing my time and finalizing the logistics.
Why I Need Your Help
Creating art can be costly but even more so, time consuming. As a result, making exceptionally beautiful hand-crafted-work takes a solid investment of both of these, not to mention great planning and attention to detail. I have the passion, drive, and expertise to make it all happen and I'm inspired to share my art/life with you along the way.
Your help will be instrumental in covering recording costs and logistics (paying studio fees, session musicians, licensing, mastering, photography, artwork, etc) for Come Alive and the two followup EPs. Furthermore, I plan to create a music video for the title track Come Alive and would also like to make a video for each of the followup EPs. Your funds will help to make all this all happen!
Here's the first music video I created last summer (2016) that won me third place in the CD Baby summer music video contest:
I've got a lot of great rewards for my backers. I think there's something for everyone at each price point.
Also note that the Come Alive EP will only be available digitally. So now is the time to get your limited edition physical copy!
If you've enjoyed my works in the past or you're new to the Jourdan Hines brand, The Come Alive Project will not disappoint! This is the foundation of something so much bigger and you get bragging rights to say, "I was a part of it from the start;)"
In addition to funding please share my story with others to help spread the word! I greatly appreciate any and all support that you have to give.
Along the way, I look forward to sharing with you live videos, photos, audio, art, and more! I encourage you to join my mailing list and follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud, and YouTube) to get updates and the latest content. You can also drop by www.jourdanhines.com to find out where I'm playing.
Thank you, together we can make this dream Come Alive!
Risks and challenges
The main obstacles are time and money. I am absolutely determined to make this project happen, however, without your support it will be more challenging and will take much longer to complete.
Furthermore, the additional funding will not only allow me to complete the project in a timely manner, it will allow me to add so much more to the final product to really make it sparkle and shine. This isn't just about creating great music, it's about spreading joy, positivity, and sharing with the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
