Recording an album of beautiful music is a lifelong dream, coming true. Be part of it.

About this project

The goal of this album will be to take about 12 of my songs, and record them, not just with my voice and guitar, but with full instrumentation, making them the most beautiful representations of what they can be. I will work with an experienced music producer to help finesse each song and develop the instrumentation, and do the technical elements of recording and mixing each track.

To create a beautiful and professional quality album, I need to raise a minimum of $10,000, and so I am asking my friends, family, and fans to please become a part of my dream by investing funds towards this album. I will pour my heart and soul into it and create something that I hope will become part of the soundtrack of your your lives.

FAQ

  • Although you have the option of a longer campaign, Kickstarter recommends 30 days. I figured they are the experts on successful campaigns, so I went with their recommendation . However, if I don't reach the $10,000, I will not get any of the money--no one's cards will be charged. I don't have a Plan B for what happens with my album in the event that this campaign is unsuccessful, so I'm just keeping all my fingers crossed that it will be. Thank you everyone for your support!

    $500 sponsors half of a song. Yeah! So for this, I will write a song in your honor (you can even choose the topic). I will record it and post it on YouTube, and play it for you at a show when I am in your city. I will also learn a song of your choosing and post it on YouTube. You get ten copies of the CD (signed, of course), five Stupid Noah t-shirts, 10 Stupid Noah stickers. You get listed as a premium sponsor on the my album, and also have a square inch of space to put whatever you would like on it. I list you as a premium sponsor on my website for the duration of 2012, along with your photo.

    $1000 sponsors the full production of an entire song! You can choose one song on the album and be listed as the song's Executive Sponsor! I will come to you, wherever you are, and play a private show for you and all of your friends. (As long as you are in the continental U.S.--if you are in Europe, it might be able to be arranged in 2013). At that show, I will play the song I have written for you (or about whatever you'd like), and any five songs you would like me to learn for the event. I will also post all of these songs on YouTube. You get copies of the CD for everyone at the party (up to 50), Stupid Noah t-shirts for everyone at the party (up to 50), and stickers for everyone at the party (up to 100). You get listed as an Executive Sponsor of my album, and have 2 1/2 square inches of space to put whatever you would like. I list you as an Executive Sponsor of my album for the year of 2012 on my website, along with your photo.
