My name is Tanner, and I play music under the name Words Like Earth. This project is dedicated to funding my first album. Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 24, 2014.
About this project
In order to record, produce, mix, master, and package my debut album "Shelves," I'll need your help in funding this project!
Around sixty percent of the goal will be used to record 8 songs with my talented friend Dani Avila, a Mexico-City native whom I met in Boston and now runs a recording studio in Brooklyn, New York.
Forty percent will go to packaging and shipping this album once it's mastered so that you can hear it.
This album is something I have been waiting to create for a while, and I hope we can work together to make it happen.
Thank you for your time!
Words Like Earth
Risks and challenges
Some risks will be time constraints, as we only have access to the studio for a certain amount of time. Also, shipping the album may take a bit. Other than that, we should be good to go!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We have set a strict personal deadline as the first of August. Albums and prints will ship on that day and digital downloads will be emailed directly to donors! :D
Actually, this album will have a broad range of instrumental accompaniment. I play a lot of different things, and this album will combine them together! Piano, drums, and everything in between!
The poster prints are actually a collaboration between myself and my good friend Erik Rojas. He's a swell guy and a great designer and artist. While I was recently on an environmental retreat to Utah, I took a lot of photographs that we hope to use to create some really cool visual pieces. It's sort of a visual representation of the thought process that went into these songs.
The digital downloads will be available as high quality MP3 files that are minimally compressed. They will also come with a lyrics file, and a full resolution digital image of the album artwork. The whole enchilada in a digital form, essentially.
