It has been over three years since I released my first musical project, Art From The Ashes EP. This has been three years of growth, change, and a whole lot of life experience. I have wrestled with fear, self-doubt, and writer's block, but I have come to the other side with music that I can't wait to share. 

The most prominent lesson that God has taught me in this time is that his love and grace are more rich, vibrant, and colorful than I could ever imagine. 

From that truth comes The Color EP. 

I have never been more eager and excited to share songs before, and I need your partnership to make it happen. 

Here is what you can do. 

1. Check out all the packages under the "rewards" tab. Give as much as you want to give, and I will send you some pretty special things in return. More info below!  

2. Make your pledge by clicking the green "Back This Project" button at the top-right. You won't be charged until the project is completed. 

THIS IS ALL OR NOTHING. If I raise all $7,000 in 30 days, I get to make this project, you get to hear it, and we all walk away winners! If I raise any amount short of that goal, your credit card is never charged, and I never see a penny. 

What are you supporting? 

The Color EP is a 5 song project. 5 songs that I have written with other wonderful songwriters who are also dear friends. 5 songs that represent universal truths that God has taught me in recent months. 5 songs that I can't wait to share. 

Stylistically, this has elements of the acoustic, quirky vibe from my first EP. But this project is more mature, more developed, more sonically interesting, and more pop. 

It is being produced by the talented Seth Penn. Seth and I have written together many times over the years, and he brings amazing creativity to the music. He is able to take the ideas in my head and make them sound even better than I imagine. 

What do I need? 

I need $7,000 to create this album. Here is the breakdown. 

Production = $4,200. This goes to pay my producer, studio time, musicians, mixing and mastering. 
Artwork/Design - $100 
CD Printing: $500 
Kickstarter cost & fees: $600
Rewards: $600
Marketing/publicity: $1,000

$7,000 is the base number. The bare minimum to make this happen. If we can raise even more, we will get to do even more! 

Stretch goal #1: $8,500 

$8,500 will allow us to hire a publicist and really get the word out to more people. I would love to make this happen! 

Stretch goal #2: $10,000 

$10,000 would allow us to make some awesome video content! And this benefits YOU, too! 

We are already halfway through with the recording process. We have finished pre-production and some of the instrument tracking. Your funds are needed to finish this out and make it a reality! 

When is this happening?

The EP is scheduled to release late January or early February. More details will be coming soon! 

 What are the rewards? 

For full reward details, check out the "Rewards" tab. But here are a few more details on some of the fun things you could get for your donation! 

It starts at just 5 little dollars. You can receive anything from an early download of the full album to a signed physical copy of the CD to exclusive "bonus demo" content to some fun merch items. 

Check out the beautiful cover of the new EP. All photography by Sydney Goodwin Photography (www.sydneygoodwinphotography.com)

One of the items you could receive is an art print of one of the lyrics to my song "Fight Your Fear." 

It's an overlay of my own handwriting and a beautiful photo taken by the talented Madeleine Bonin (www.madeleinebonin.com). 

You could also get a The Color EP mug. Photo coming soon! 

Huge shoutout to Kate Allen (www.uncommonkate.com) for helping me design the cover art, art print, and mug. 

In Closing...

Thank you in advance for every bit of support on this project. Every bit means so much to me. 

I also ask that you pray for us as we continue to make this music. Pray that God will use these songs to affect someone in some way.

Risks and challenges

With any musical project, there is potential for setbacks and delays; however, we have created built-in buffer time to make sure this is accomplished and ready to send to you in January (official release in February). If there are any delays that will keep us from accomplishing that, we will let you know well in advance!
