Hi! I'm Chad! Let's make a record!
Hi, I'm Chad Richard. I write songs. And I travel around from time to time with a guitar and sing 'em to folks whenever I can. I've always dreamed about what it would be like to make my living solely by playing my songs for people. But sometimes life leads us down different roads, and with that being said, my main "career" has always been in a chemical plant.
I did however, manage to dip my toe in that creative water a few years ago when I made my first full length record titled "Veteran's Grocery". I'm very grateful to have had Walt Wilkins and Todd Purifoy produce that record. We made a really cool first record with my one and only regret being that I did absolutely nothing in the way of promoting it. I guess at the time it was just more of a bucket list item to check off, and merch to sale at my shows.
I've done quite a bit of living and writing since the "Veteran's Grocery" record. I've experience a lot since then. Good and bad. Happy and sad. I've drawn from all these experiences and written what I believe to be 12 meaningful songs that I feel strongly about. With my chemical plant days numbered I'm ready to go back in the studio and create something really special and start working toward new goals in this blessed life. I want to put these 12 songs on an album titled "Worthy Cause". I believe it is!
I'm incredibly honored and thrilled to have Walt Wilkins producing again and Ron Flynt engineering. All of this fun work will take place at Jumping Dog Studio in Austin ,Tx.
We're doing things a little different this time in a cool way and I'm very excited about this project and the sound we're going for. And when it's all said and done I want to promote this record and put it out into this big ole scary, crazy, beautiful world for all, or at least some, to dig! Fun stuff!
This Kickstarter campaign is a new deal for me. It's an interesting way for independent artists like myself to fund projects these days. It's a really cool concept in that we're not asking for a hand out but instead pre-saleing the record and other rewards to you the fans, friends, and supporters in order to fund recording, mastering, and promoting expenses. You the supporter/fan/friend gets the record first, before it's released to the public in exchange for your belief and support of this project. There are different levels of support and rewards offered. It's an all or nothing campaign meaning that if the goal isn't (ain't) reached you won't be (ain't) charged.
I'm launching this Kickstarter campaign in hopes that if you've ever remotely enjoyed even a smidgin of my music and believe in what I doing that you will be kind enough to help me out by pre-ordering this new record "Worthy Cause" or choose one of the other levels of support and rewards offered. Thank you so so very much! Let's make a record!
