Huge things are happening! My next album for children is all set to be recorded, and this time multi-grammy winner, music legend, and all around good guy, Larry Klein, is producing it! (Where I come from this is what we call a, "Very Big Deal!") The songs are written and ready to go, having been honed over thousands of live performances for tens of thousands of preschoolers. It's my best material yet, and things are lining up to make this album something that will stir the hearts, fire the imaginations, and tickle the funny-bones of young children for years to come!
Larry Klein has had a long and artful career as a bass player, producer, and song-writer (Google him and in 3 seconds you'll find an impressive list of your musical heroes he's worked with, most famously his long collaboration with Joni Mitchell.) One thing he's never done, however, is make an album for children. Seeing me in action and witnessing the effect my work has on children has fired him up! He knows that together we can produce music for families that reaches the highest levels of artistic expression.
Wow. Humbling, flattering, and incredibly exciting.
What do I need?
You are an essential part of bringing this wonderful album to life! I'm all set to go, but I need to pay for recording studio time, hire musicians and engineers, and pay for the physical production of CD's. $25,000 is the absolute minimum required to produce this album at such a professional level of quality, but it's not the maximum. If I'm fortunate enough to generate more it means we'll have more studio time to reach the creative vision Larry and I share.
What do you get?
Be sure to check out all the cool rewards. They range from a digital copy of the album all the way up to having your child perform on a song. You're part of the team creating this album, and you'll share in the glory!
Important Money Details
Kickstarter is all or nothing. This means your credit card will only be charged if I reach my goal amount within the 30 day window. If I'm a dollar short come the 31st day, you won't pay a single penny. This ensures that your money will be used only for this project. But it also means that there's some urgency.
If I don't reach my goal, I get nothing and the project won't go forward.
Thank you for being part of creating artful, intelligent music for families. (What excellent taste you have.) Because of you this album will be delivered into the eager hands, hearts, and minds of thousands of young children.
It is a dream come true to bring what I love to the children you love.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges we face in seeing this project through are very small. The songs are all written, and Larry and I each bring great experience, skill, and enthusiasm. That said, we're both dads, husbands, and artists with busy lives, so coordinating schedules will probably be our biggest challenge!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
