I am releasing an EP with the support of friends, family, and fans. Help by being a part of the recording and distribution process.

My name is David Ruybalid.  I have been writing and performing since childhood.  I write for many different genres and purposes.  I have been so blessed to serve in a local church in San Jose.  So many of my songs have been written out of what God is doing in my life, and in the life of my church.  I have been wanting to put them together in a project for years to share and offer as a tool for congregational worship.  I believe that the time is now.


I have already finished a single called "Hope Is Found in You".  It is inspired out of a partnership that my church (The Journey) has with World Vision.  We sponsor a specific region in Zimbabwe.  "Hope Is Found in You" is a belief that worship is more than just sitting around singing songs, but if we worship a God, who is about bringing people to Him and changing lives, we then respond by action to point people toward Him.

"Hope Is Found In You" (2013 Single)

I will be releasing this EP in the fall of 2013.  It will have five songs that are all focused on being a tool for congregational worship.  

I have built an amazing production team.  I have Jeremy Unruh (Vocal Producer/Engineer), Chad Carouthers (Guitars and Bass - Jeff Deyo, Phillips, Craig, and Dean), and Brad Nyght (Head Producer - Desperation Band, Gungor, Lincoln Brewster, Darrell Evans, Kari Jobe).  These guys I trust, have known for years, and have a great track record for making great music with.


Here is what is unique about my project:

1.  I have my own recording studio.  Because of this, my production costs are so much lower. I can get really high quality players to play on the project.

2.  I have industry experience.  I have managed, consulted, and produced with major label/big named artists and producers (Dove and Grammy Awards).  Because of this, I have a massive network with endless possibilities for the future.


3.  This campaign will also include distribution.  I already signed a deal for national radio distribution, starting in October.  This will include radio costs as well as digital distribution to iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.  I will also have a thousand copies pressed and wrapped. 

With your funding help, I will be able to function on this project without a label. 

Cost Summary

Like I said before, this is an affordable package that includes recording/production and distribution to radio and online stores.  Any amount raised over the goal will go to a 2014 spring tour and possibly some guest appearances by some known artists.  

I trust that the goal will be met.  The sky is the limit and this is just a start.  Will you help by partnering with me and my team on this project?

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

One of the challenges that I know that I will run into is that of timing of deadlines. We are balancing multiple musician and producer schedules, as well as a commitment that I made to a radio distribution company. Everything will work out right, but it is a challenge to manage timelines and schedules with so many different people.

I am fully confident in God's timing and the people around me that support me. With this I still know it is a risk in so many ways. The biggest one for me is time. Risk is worth taking, but that is a fear in the back of my mind, because I am spending so much time getting this project together and less time engaged in other things. I think that it would be wrong to not take this risk. I don't want to be 20 years down the road wishing that I had taken it.
