About this project
Hello, everyone! Thanks for coming to this web page. My goal for this Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for pressing CD copies of my new solo recording Ross Beach: "Orange Gerbera Daisies." It's a collection of love songs, longing songs, breakup songs, and reflection songs culled from my recent writing and arranged into a loose narrative arc. It was lovingly recorded and engineered, DIY-style in my digital basement studio, and features Patrick Hargon (Jim White Band) on guitar and Pat Kearns (Blue Skies For Black Hearts) on backing vocals. It's currently being mixed, mastered and massaged by my friend Mike Merriam in Dallas, Texas. I feel that it would make a great addition to anyone's independent music collection. This will be my 19th collection of original songs, over a 21-year period. I've never made a profit on any music project, nor do I necessarily want to, but with your support I'll be able to continue creating and distributing my work while perhaps breaking even with expenses. My fundraising goal doesn't even fully cover manufacturing costs, but it will go a long way towards getting the project made and distributed. Any amount above my goal will be put towards postage, promotion and the rest of the manufacturing costs.
In addition to raising funds, I'm also hoping this will be an opportunity to spread the music around. Every donation award includes a copy of the finished product. The rewards for all levels include shipping and/or travel. Autographs are optional and are fully customizable. Thanks for listening and thanks for your patronage!
