First, my thanks for the watching the Video and/or reading here. Time is precious and I appreciate your giving me some of yours. From 9/27 to 10/12/12 I'll be at Whitewater Studios in Vancouver, BC, Canada finishing a new album: JOY DEEP AS SORROW. I'm raising funds for some of the finishing recording costs, mastering, artwork, and CD manufacture. Eleven newly recorded songs. I'm again working with Roy Salmond, who produced 2009's "Christmastide". This is our third project together (the second being "Jesus Music Again" which was a collaboration with Bill Batstone and Alex MacDougall). Depending on how you count releases, this will be my Twelfth Album. If you'd like to know more about me, Google "bob bennett singer", check out YouTube and Vimeo, listen to full-length albums on Spotify and MOG, find samples on iTunes and Amazon. There are also some links listed with a brief bio when you click the small "Bob Bennett" link at the top of the page. Again, I appreciate your taking time to visit my first Kickstarter Campaign Page and thank you for your kind consideration and generosity in supporting this new release.
Risks and challenges
Finishing the recording, mixing, and mastering are the easiest parts to accomplish in terms of workload and the predicability of success. Money is, of course, important and utterly necessary throughout. Perhaps the biggest challenge for me will be to oversee the development of the artwork/design for packaging in time to submit the disc for manufacturing. My goal is to have CDs in-hand (or in transit to me) by Thanksgiving. I want to take advantage of the prime-time of Holiday Season Shopping. My son Paul will be bringing his considerable talents to bear, so that's a definite plus here. Finding the right person to execute and format the design for manufacture is the biggest question mark as I write this at the start of this Campaign. I have no doubt it'll get done well, but funds will be an important factor in how these blanks will be filled in. I've tried to craft the Rewards with enough active participation from me to make it interesting, but not too much so as to make delivery arduous or impossible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
