Passage was originally released in a digital format on November 28, 2012.

I wrote this EP during a very big transition in my life. I was preparing to quit my stable, full-time job and become a full-time musician. I tried to capture both my excitement and pure terror at the thought of what I was about to do.

I chose Cape Horn, the very southernmost tip of South America, as the metaphor for this album. Cape Horn is known as the "sailor's Mt. Everest". It's where you transition between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and is considered to be the hardest sailing spot in the world. It represented well my life at that point. It was one of the hardest times of my life... continuing a full time job that I was unhappy with and preparing for the life of a full-time musician.

So as you can imagine, this EP means a lot to me, and I would VERY MUCH like to see it pressed to vinyl and be able to hold it in my hands. I'm still blown away by the support for my last Kickstarter to get the Migratory Patterns EP pressed to vinyl, so I need your help again!

I want to print these records in a special color (much like I did with Migratory Patterns). The $2600 I'm asking for takes into account the cost of printing the records, paying for the additional artwork that will be on the record, and shipping materials.

All backers will have their vinyls shipped to them at least ONE WEEK before they are available for regular sale on my website.

Thank you so much for taking part in this with me!

Risks and challenges

Part of getting vinyls pressed is making a master and getting test pressings. The March time frame is based on the test pressings coming back ok, but if there happens to be an issue, the master will have to be re-made and production will get pushed back. This is pretty unlikely, but know that any delays will be communicated to you!

FAQ

  • The test pressings are regular black vinyl records in a plastic sleeve. They sound great, and as I mentioned I will sign and number the label!
