About this project

My new band is called "The Begging Sea" and this is my first song debuting right here on kickstarter.  

 "All WE'VE GOT " 

Need more info?  

Where are the funds going? OK, Well I need about 15k to pay for recording, mixing, mastering, artwork, promotion, printing, pressing etc (& probably reward blue with some organic dog food for all his hard work). I'd love to have some money left over to make a few great music videos too. All in all that's about a fourth of the budget we had for the last sherwood album. I want this album to sound just as good as the older records that I was a part of. 

When will it come out? I hope to get into the studio and record this fall and have the record done before Christmas. I then hope to set up promotions and release the album early next year. If I hit my goal then I will devote my full-time energy starting the moment I hit 15k! I will immediately start finishing a lot of the song ideas I have in my head & demo them out. I am doing this sort of old school (if that's even possible) because I'm waiting to see if it's going to get launched before I start. I have no contingency plan so it's really going to interesting to see what happens. 

What if you raise more money then your goal? Well, I'll use those funds to market the record more intensely and also to help me tour! That would be a lot of fun. For now I'll just focus on making the record and then take it one step at a time. I will be giving lots of updates so feel free to get involved and tell some other folks who you'd think might also be interested. I hope all of this is a bit comforting after a lot of fans expressed such a loss with the end of Sherwood. This is a new project and not connected in anyway but hopefully it can be just as enjoyed. Thank you again for all the heartfelt farewell emails, in some ways that helped me to pick up my guitar and have the courage to try again. 

Godspeed,

Nate

Here's what all the top kickstarters names to my twitter profile look like!

FAQ

  • That means you get all the physical items like cd, t-shirt etc. It doesn't mean you get the special order stuff like handwritten lyrics, song writing etc. You have to buy those specific offers. It's just an easier way to say you get all the items that I can ship you in the mail. Hopefully that helps makes more sense! Thanks again for checking the project out.
