Ben Ford EP - Breather

$14,920

81

About a year and a half ago, my career started changing paths. It had been on a steady rate of growth. A church internship grew into a full-time worship leader position. I released a worship album, and was playing youth retreats all over the Southeast. 

But the songs that have come out of my mind over the last year and half are different. You won't hear most of them in a worship service. You probably won't hear them on any "positive and encouraging" radio stations. 

I've been more honest with myself and with God over the last year and a half. The songs that have resulted are what I'm trying to provide for you through this funding campaign. There's no record label involved here. This 5-song EP was recorded at a high-profile professional studio -- the best one in Nashville in our opinion -- but paying for that, promoting it, distributing it, and everything else is on us. So we need your help. 

Risks and challenges

The record is already 95% done. So as soon as we get funded, we pay the studio, they give us final masters (100% completed tracks), and we get the album distributed.
