Bringing excitement back to Christian-Messianic music!

Over the past two years, I and my father, Ray Soular, have been working hard to get everything ready to start production on my first album titled, "The Remnant". We have 12 amazing songs, have assembled an awesome team of producers, recording engineers and musicians. All that’s left is the funding. We have until April 15th to raise the $21,000 needed to be able to complete the final production of this project.

"I am so excited to have this opportunity to share the gospel and create amazing music at the same time!"

If you feel led to back me, you can do so by selecting a reward for yourself from the right side of the screen. My deepest gratitude is to you. You are allowing me to live my dream and bring the message of Yeshua to the world!


 "Jerusalem" (short version)

  "The Remnant" (Short version)

"He's Coming" Live

"Yeshua Come Back For Me"

"Into the Hands of Angels" (Psalm 91)

 **I specially tune all the instruments to healing frequencies known as the Solfeggio Healing Scale when I play and record my songs.**

Being raised into a musical family, I remember knowing from a very young age that all I wanted to do was to be a musician. At 15 years old I learned to play the guitar and began taking my first steps towards pursuing my career in the music industry. I began to get a lot of attention for videos I uploaded of myself playing guitar on Youtube. This video received over 10 million views:

People in the music industry, who had seen my videos, started to contact me. Musicians wanted me to go on tour with them, producers wanted to work with me, magazines wanted to interview me, and A&R representatives wanted to pitch me to a major record label.

Then one day right in the middle of everything I had a personal experience with God that changed my whole life.

He asked me to walk away from pursuing a promising music career and to pursue my relationship with Yeshua (Jesus). During this time He started giving me the music that He wanted me to play. In the course of three and a half years, He has inspired me to write over 70 songs.

My dad/manager/band member, Ray Soular, has been working with me to get all of these songs demoed and as ready as we can to make into a professional album. We have done as much as we can with what we have but in order to make this the most effective and quality album for the listener we can't do it alone. We have met some amazing producers/mixers/recording engineers and musicians who all want to contribute their own special God-given gift to this music and album. The only thing we need now is the funding. 

I didn't want to go to a record label first, because you run the risk of losing the purity of your vision and message so that's why I am coming to you. You can allow me to make this album 100% independent with the best team and crew we could ask for. I would be honored if you would take this journey with me.

 

"I want to dedicate my whole life to bringing joy, hope and Yeshua to the world through music."

 "The Remnant" is my vision for this generation of believers. The Remnant is a community of believers, small in comparison to the rest of the world but they are the ones who God uses to change the world. They are warriors equipped with truth and love ready to stand up when everyone is afraid to. They will not allow themselves to be silenced, because their mission is to open the eyes of those still blinded to the truth. They are happy and blessed because they serve a Victorious God. This is who I write my music for, to strengthen and inspire these believers to live boldly for Yeshua.

This project was launched on Purim, March 16th 2014, which is the celebration of Queen Esther in the bible who risked her life in order to save her people. This is to remind us to go forth and act with faith in the face of uncertainty. "Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this." Esther 4:14

This project is set to end on Passover, April 15th 2014, which is the celebration of God's victory for the children of Israel as they were freed from the bondage of the Egyptians. This is to remind us that our strength comes not from man but from God, and if He is with us, what should we fear?

Here is a break down of how the funds will be spent:

Love,

Ash Soular
