Over the last couple years I have culled together a collection of songs I am very proud of and that have become a integral part of my live show. Yet countless times after shows I get asked which CD has "White Trash Southern Belle" or "Old Records" or "Arkansas Traveler" and I have to sadly reply "They still aren't recorded yet." That's why I've turned to Kickstarter and more importantly to YOU for help in making what I hope will be my first full length album.
In December 2015 I left NYC and moved to Nashville with literally nothing but a suitcase and a guitar. I wanted to write and hone my craft and become a touring songwriter. And that is exactly what I did. In the process I have traveled across America, Canada and Ireland playing dive bars, listening rooms, coffeeshps, living rooms and theaters. I have met a lot of great people and great songwriters along the way. These experiences have helped shape who I have become as a artist and performer and I am ready to go into the studio and make these songs the best they can be.
MAKING THE ALBUM
I am going to record the album in my adopted hometown of Nashville. It will be my first recording made here and I will have the help of the talented musicians from my beloved East Nashville community. The money raised will go to these excellent guest musicians, studio time, engineering, mixing, mastering, publicity and the printing of physical copies! Not a dollar will be wasted.
Risks and challenges
I have written the material for a full length album but recording a full length is contingent on how much I can raise. If I make my minimum of $2500.00 I can do about 5 songs. If I get to $4500.00 I can do 8 songs, $7500.00 for a full album with some publicity and $10'000.00 for a full album, publicity and a vinyl release.
Kickstarter is all or nothing, but every donation makes a difference! If I don't reach my goal by the end of the 30-day period, you won't be charged, no rewards will be sent out, and the album won't be funded. But if I make my goal, and exceed it, the sky is really the limit on what can be accomplished.
