My name is Marcus Eaton, and I have been passionate about music my whole life.
One of my very first memories is being in my father's recording studio as a toddler. I began playing guitar when I was nine and I formed my first band in high school. When I was 22, my band was signed to a record deal and we continued to travel and build a following throughout the Northwest.
As any artist will tell you, it takes years to develop one's craft. I continue to work every day to master my instrument, my singing and my songwriting. I have collected a few amazing mentors along the way and now I am at a crossroads. Everything has lead up to this extraordinary opportunity that allows me to express my artistry in a way that I’ve never been able to before.
With many shifting tides in the music industry and the music delivery method, you now have the ability to do what a record label used to do. This is the first time in history where you can be involved with the recording process.
I am thrilled to announce my dream-come-true project: the pinnacle of years’ worth of work – MY NEW ALBUM.
Over the last few years, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with the legendary David Crosby on his first solo album in 20 years. Now, some of the same renowned musicians will be working with me on my new album. I have a collection of new songs (some written with David Crosby and his son, LA musician and producer James Raymond), and an innovative approach that will undoubtedly lead to the best sonic sensation I have ever created.
The money generated from this campaign will fund my new recording. (studio time, musicians fees, art, photography, printing costs, hard drives, mastering, etc.) Any additional funding will go towards album promotion and touring.
In return for your generous contributions, you will receive some really cool incentives and have the opportunity to join me for what will assuredly be a fun and very memorable experience.
Please feel free to write me to create custom high level rewards.
I am very thrilled to have your backing on this project and I can't wait for you to hear the results!
Thank you for your support,
Risks and challenges
There are many challenges in making a record and from my past experience, the album usually takes longer than expected to finish. I will do my absolute best to keep within the allotted time frame and deliver the album to you while it is still hot out of the oven.
Since everyone's schedules dictate the flow of the recording process, I will allow plenty of time for the album to unfold and for us to get the performances that will make the record extraordinary.
Please keep in mind that while some of the rewards can be delivered right away, others can only be delivered once the project is finished. For example, the solo house performances can begin once we have mutually agreed upon a date. Downloads of previous albums will also be available right away. If you have any questions about rewards, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
