I've set a goal of $15,000 to reach in 27 days, just to start the process of recording. However, the cost of recording and promotion of the record will cost well over $60,000 and I would be SO honored if you would consider being a part of this mission and these songs. I have decided to add some stretch goals to show my absolute highest appreciation to all of you! Thanks for backing this project, spreading the word, your kind words of encouragement, and most importantly making the Lord famous through song!
If we reach:
$40,000 - EVERY BACKER will receive a PDF of the story behind each song on the album + lyrics and chords for all songs.
$50,000 - EVERY BACKER will have access to a PRIVATE Kickstarter Backer Only LIVE StageIt show from my living room to yours.
$60,000 and beyond - REWARD #3 AND HIGHER backers will be invited to join me for a PRIVATE Kickstarter Backer Only Release Party in Richmond, IN. I'll share the new songs for y'all live, & we'll celebrate together!!

Hey friends! Adam here. For the past 10 years, I've had the pleasure of touring around the country and around the world testifying of the saving grace and mercy of the Lord. When I was 20 years old, the Lord gave me a vision of full-time ministry on the road through music. Wow how faithful He has been!! I truly can not believe that I am about to begin my fourth project since beginning ministry. This will be my 2nd album to be released across the world, with your help of course!! So exciting!
As many of you know, over the last few years I have been touring and being mentored by my friend, Jeremy Camp. Im looking forward to the opportunity to use the things I've learned in this new season as an independent artist.
This new season of Ministry has proven itself to be difficult with many obstacles along the way. But pressing deeper into the Lord, my heart has never been more secure and songs ever been more true to who I am in Him.
This new project will begin as a 6 song EP. All of these songs are born from scripture and testify of the Lord's faithfulness. My heart behind the music is to lead others into worship; sing truth into the darkness; encourage the body and to make the Lord famous through song.
But here's the thing, I need your help to make this reality! Before I can begin recording I need to pay half the recording costs by April 22nd, that's 27 days away!
I desire for as many people to hear these songs as possible. That requires a marketing and distribution budget that I don't have yet. It feels so crazy to branch out on my own independently apart from a label but I really do believe in these songs and the direction the Lord is leading. I would love for YOU to be apart of enabling these songs to speak hope and truth into lives around the world! Get this, the more support gained through Kickstarter, the better I will be able to promote and share and market this project.
Why $60,000? First and foremost, I need to pay the people that help make this music possible. There are studio costs, musicians that play on the album, engineers, photography, & graphic design - so many amazing people are involved in turning this into something I can't wait to share with you all! Additionally, I am hoping to raise MORE money so that I can afford to properly SHARE these songs with the world. I want the most people possible to hear it and the message of hope and life found only in Jesus Christ!
The team I would like to build would consist of a publicist to try and garner reviews, several radio reps to attempt to get this music on radio stations, distributors to push this music into stores, and several other team players. To give these songs a chance to be heard, it will cost every bit of $60,000, if not more! But it's impossible to even begin without your help.
I'm so honored that you would consider taking this journey with me, and that you’d want to help me make and share this music. I seriously could not do this without you. Here’s to hoping that these songs will bless your heart and the lives of many.
Risks and challenges
There are definitely risks and challenges to releasing a record independently. My team and I are very confident that we can pull this project off without a hitch! Should we experience any kind of delays with items, shipping, fulfillment, etc. we will be sure to let all backers know immediately and we will keep an open communication.
