Kayle Clements Project - the next album.
Hello! My name is Kayle Clements. I've been a pianist my whole life, and have played in just about every situation you can think off. I've also released three albums to date, each were recorded and produced by me in my home studio. Now, I'm working on my next album. I'm expanding this project and hiring musicians, booking an outside studio, and having it professionally mastered. This is all pretty exciting, but also a lot more expensive - and that's where I hope you can help.

How I plan to spend your hard earned money. Over half my budget goes to cover recording, mastering and duplicating costs. The rest goes to musicians, marketing and maybe some pizza. Every penny we raise will go to make the album as great as possible. If we raise more than our target amount, I can spend more time in the studio.

As a rule of Kickstarter - if I don't reach my goal of $5,567, my project doesn't get funded, and you won't get charged, but you also won't get the rewards. We both lose. It's all or nothing, so every penny counts.

There are a number of different levels and amounts to get involved. I hope you can find something here that makes you want to give up some of your hard earned money.

We all know times are tough. And it may seem crazy to ask for $5,567 to record an album. But I want to take this album to the next level, and put a little more money in the pockets of musicians, a couple engineers.

Thank You! A big Thanks in advance for reading this far and thinking about supporting me and independent music. I hope you want to be involved, but if you can't, or this isn't the project for you, that's ok - but please tell your friends and family and see if they might want to get involved.
