About this project

Since I released my last record "Mockingbird Sing" in 2011 I have toured the country playing over 650 shows and I'm writing new songs all the time.  I can't believe it has been three years since the release of my last CD! I have written the songs for my new project and we are ready to start the recording process. Last summer I had the opporutunity to record some acoustic tracks at TreeLady Studios in Turtle Creek, PA. Garrett Haines has mastered my last few projects and I really love what we recorded there. I have always wanted a solo acoustic recording that represents what I sound like when I play solo shows. David Hydek at TreeLady and I have compiled a 5 song solo acoustic EP called "33" that you can get a digital download of for only $3 during this Kickstarter campaign. The EP is almost finished and you will receive a download code shortly after the campaign is funded. I wanted to offer the download of "33" for $3 and both downloads for $11 in hopes to get as many people involved as possible. This is where you come in! First, THANK YOU for backing this project! Second, TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Help us get the word out by reposting on social media sites and emailing the link to a music loving friend saying "Hey Music Loving Friend, I think you would enjoy Carter Sampson's music! She is awesome and you can get her new EP for $3." In 2011 I had 90 backers for "Mockingbird Sing" and it blew my mind! With this project I want to triple the number of backers and that's why getting the word out is so important.

 I am so proud of every CD I have recorded and it has been amazing to work with the talent I have worked with to date. Last year I moved back home to Oklahoma. I was born and raised in Oklahoma City and it will always be my home so for this new project I have decided to keep it local. The state of Oklahoma has some of the best songwriters, musicians and music that I have ever heard and I am lucky enough to call a lot of those super talented Okies friends. In 2009 I recorded "Good for the Meantime" with Travis Linville at Dirtybird Studios in Norman, OK and it was my favorite recording experience so for this brand new recording I am teaming up with Travis Linville and some of my favorite Oklahomans!  I am really excited to work with John Moreland as co-producer on this project. If you haven't heard Moreland's songs look him up NOW! (well after you read this) This project funded by Kickstarter will have 11-13 new original songs Co-Produced by Linville, Moreland and myself recorded with a full band at Dirtybird Studios and mastered at  TreeLady Studios. I really want to take this record to the next  level and that involves hiring a PR company and a radio promoter to get the CD on the radio waves and into the hands of new fans.

If you haven't backed a project on Kickstarter before the deal is YOU get all kinds of cool rewards like signed CDs, limited edition t-shirts, house concerts and more in exchange for helping me pay for this new CD. I have 33 days to raise $11,111, and I need every cent to make this record happen,  if the goal is not met in the time given no credit cards are charged, all bets are off and we all get nothing. 

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about how lucky I am to get to do the one thing that I have dreamed of doing my whole life. I am so grateful for the opportunities and experiences that I have had and I know that a lot of what I have is because of you! Thank you again for taking the time to read this and for being a part of this project! Sincerely, Carter Sampson
