"All I Need"

Three months ago, someone asked me if I ever thought about recording an album.  It wasn't long before God pressed an urgency on my heart to record a collection of songs pointing to our deepest need, to know God's love and His grace.  The idea of "All I Need" was born.

I would like to share these songs with you with the hope they have the same impact on you that they continue to have on me.  However, studio recording and everything else involved in creating and promoting an album costs a lot of money. 

This is why Kickstarter is key to the process for me.  By creating a community where family, friends and even folks we don't know can support artists and creativity, someone like me can see something that started as a dream become reality.

I hope you took the opportunity to watch the video above.  The song I am singing in the video is an original song written by a friend.  "All I Need" would be a wide variety of songs tied together with the accompaniment of an acoustic guitar.  It would include original songs, traditional songs and modern hymns.  If you are not familiar with modern hymns, this album would be a great sampler.

Finally, here is clip of the song that is the inspiration for the title of the album.  Keep in mind both the recording in the video and this clip are not professional recordings...yet!

Action

It's a true story.  My daughter really did offer all the money in her piggy bank for this project.  Here's how to join her efforts:

  • Select a pledging level.  You will be asked to enter your credit or debit card information through Amazon when you pledge.
  • *Important*  I must reach my funding goal by my deadline, in order to receive any funds!  (This must be done through Kickstarter; please do not write me a check.)
  • Your card is charged or debited only if I reach my goal.

Accountability

The funds collected for this project will be used to pay for the following:

  • Recording in a professional recording studio
  • Mixing and mastering
  • Accompaniment
  • Licensing
  • Artwork
  • Digital distribution (iTunes, Amazon, etc.)
  • CD duplication

Please consider backing me even after I reach my goal so that I can also pay for the following:

  • Additional CD duplication
  • Promotional and music videos
  • Other promotional activities, such as play on internet radio stations
  • Continued development of my voice and musicianship

Appreciation

I pray that others' hearts would be touched by this music as I have been.  I would truly be humbled and grateful to see "All I Need" completed this summer.  Thank you for your consideration. 

Risks and challenges

I have set an aggressive schedule to complete the album. However, unforeseen obstacles or setbacks can potentially occur in a recording project delaying the release. I will communicate with you regularly so that you can enjoy the journey with me!
