Life is hard.
From minor annoyances like taxes and Comcast customer service to legitimate tragedies like cancer and sex-trafficking, it's a pretty rough world out there.
But there is also beauty. Hope. Moments of overwhelming joy. Mountains, sunsets, friends, the laughter of a child.
I think the music of our churches should reflect the whole spectrum of human experience, the highs and the lows. Unfortunately, the bulk of modern music for the church is one dimensional.
So I've been doing some writing.
Some of these songs are meant to be sung together in triumphant solidarity, others are more reflective, even uncomfortable. The goal is to create a seamless journey through doubt and despair into hope. Sonically, you'll hear straight up indie rock with hints of folky vulnerability; dirty guitars and delicate strings.
I'll be recording five of these songs with producer/engineer Michael Rossback at Crystal Village Studios in Colorado. Michael has done amazing work with The Brilliance, Gungor, and other artists that I really love. It's pretty amazing that he signed on to produce this project. I'm freaking out a bit.
The thing is, I can't make this project without you. Even if I could, I don't want to do it without you. Let's create something beautiful and inspiring together as a community. Sound like something you could get onboard with?
You can hear my last project below - listen for the group vocals by the amazing Kickstarter backers. So fun.
Risks and challenges
The budget for this project is just over $10k. I've set aside half of that but need to raise $5k here on Kickstarter to complete the project with excellence. The funds raised here will go directly to studio costs. After we hit that $5k mark we start to have a little breathing room and a couple fun stretch goals.
$5k : Fully funded!
$6K : Real string section!
$8K : Live concert video!
Nothing worth doing is without risks and challenges. Thankfully, I have a great team in place to help me see this project through to completion.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
