"Bramble" is an album of songs that have grown from seed to fruit in the last couple years.  Following the release of Cold Mountain Child's previous album in 2015, I've had the good fortune of collaborating with three gifted brothers - Shane, John, and Milowe -  for Bramble's realization.  They've each added their own flavors and textures to the songs.  Drawing inspiration from human struggles, from my travels, power structures and wild nature, these songs are ready to be heard. 

 Who am I?  I'm Tyler, a songwriter who lives out in the country near the woods with my genius wife Marisol and our two goofy cats.  Born in California, I grew up mostly in Michigan and love its natural splendor and human hearts.

Alongside gardening and homestead projects, I've put together a studio in a room in our house where the tracking, mixing and mastering for Bramble happened. These last many months have been filled with recording, mixing, balancing, revising and then doing it again!  Now the album is ready for physical fabrication and distribution.  

I'd be honored if you would join me in supporting this Kickstarter to release "Bramble"!  

This campaign is a bit unique in that the sound-production work of the album is finished, so studio costs are not part of the equation.

Your support will make possible:

-the fabrication of CD's and cassettes.

-creation of new merch to support the release.

-the distribution of songs to online music services and radio stations.

-shipping and Kickstarter fees.

As a thank you for your help with this Kickstarter campaign you'll be getting the new album "Bramble" featuring the artwork of Mary "Marby" Vallee. 

Plus other treats for your kind-heartedness.

Song seeds were planted, sprouted, nourished and refined.  

I'd be so grateful for your help in sharing the fruits.

Thank you so much!

-Tyler

Risks and challenges

I'm the manager of Cold Mountain Child as well as the other hats I wear. This means booking, promoting and music production as well as the songwriting aspect of the craft. I'm 100% dedicated to seeing this album release through, as I've already invested many hours to its production and refinement.
