Help Brave the River finish a double-album called "Strange Currents," a concept record based on my journey across three continents.
STRANGE CURRENTS: A concept album of longing, restlessness, and the pursuit of dreams...
Two years ago, my life felt like it was falling to pieces. In the midst of a personal crisis, I began questioning everything I'd come to know as truth. After nearly quitting music entirely, I threw myself into a new music project called Brave the River.
After moving to Ireland to study Film and Celtic Literature, I embarked on a journey across three continents which took me from the slopes of Europe's snow-capped mountains to the edges of the Sahara and the minarets of Istanbul. In it all, I found music. That music has become "Strange Currents," Brave the River's debut record. After writing over 40 songs, I performed and produced the entire record myself. It's a double-album of indie rock: 23 tracks on 2 CDs. And I'm really excited about how it sounds. But I need your help.
Pledge some dough. I write you a song.
After financing the production of the record myself, I've reached the end of my budget. But I'm not quite finished. I'm mixing the record myself, but I still need to:
-have the record mastered
-get it pressed on CD with Conrad Roset's gorgeous artwork (http://www.conradroset.com/)
To do this, I need at least $750. So I've put together a bunch of great rewards for whoever wishes to back me... my favorite pledge: $75 and I'll write you a song!
That's right: I'll write and record you a song. It could be for your boyfriend, or for your girlfriend, or for your pet cat. It doesn't matter! Just make it good because it might end up on my next album!
So check out the rewards! This record is a journey which is just beginning... and I want you to be a part of it! I'm really excited about how this record is sounding, and I want it to look really good too! So consider doing something to make a dream come true. Consider pledging to help finish this record! And then encourage your friends to check it out. Remember, if i don't reach $750, I don't get anything... all the pledges are returned. So please, help me spread the word!
I'll write you a song about whatever you want, then record it and send it your way as an MP3. Plus, you get an autographed copy of "Strange Currents." Along with that, you'll have that unending, warm-fuzzy feeling that you played an integral part in the completion of this record and helped inspire the next record! What's better?
Pledging couldn't be easier. Just hit the big green "Back this project" button up beside the video. You'll be asked how much you want to pledge and what reward you want. Don't worry, you don't have to make any new accounts. You can pay through Amazon--so it's super easy. You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help!
Yes! I'll do a weird "happy dance" each time a new person pledges. It will be groovy (and a little scary).
