12 stand-out and stand-alone powerpop songs. Catchy pop melodies with lush harmonies and a retro feel. Definitely my best work to date.

Mike Brunacini - Cherry Springs

$513

19

I'm Mike Brunacini. Some call me Bruno. I'm a songwriter. I've wanted to be a songwriter since I was a child. When I was 3 years old my favorite movie was Disney's Fantasia. There is something about music that resonates with me on a deep level. 

I've been writing original songs since 2005. I released my first album in 2012 and since then I've released two EPs and a second full length album. The day my second album was mastered was the day I started writing my third album, which is going to be called "Cherry Springs." 

Unlike my previous two albums, there is no unifying topic or concept. I set out in early 2014 to write a solid collection of standalone powerpop songs. I've often said that I couldn't survive without songwriting, but now it is more than a coping mechanism. My goal for this album was to really hone my craft to tell stories. Each song is an individual story which, for the most part, have little or nothing to do with me.

If you have followed my career I think you'll agree that this is my best work to date. The songs themselves, the recording, the mix, and the performance are top notch. I'm extremely proud of this record.

The album is already recorded, mixed, and mastered. As far as the music is concerned, Cherry Springs has been completed and sounds incredible. Your pledges will fund the production of physical CDs, which you can pre-order here... right now!

There are several reward packages for you to choose from and the money you pledge will go directly towards fulfilling those rewards.

There is a basic digital download of the new album, which you'll receive before the official release date.

You can order the physical CD or you can order a signed CD. There is also a reward that gets your name into the liner notes!

If you are looking to discover my previous work, you can get the "Signed Discography" reward which will get you signed copies of my first two album, the new album, and digital downloads of my two EPs.

The top of the line reward is a private acoustic performance at a venue of your choice (Within an hour's drive of Jamestown). It's important to know that each reward builds on the last. Meaning all rewards above "Digital Download" come with the digital download. 

So please, make a pledge for my best album yet!
