A Winter's Night - Solo Guitar Christmas and Holiday Album

$3,108

51

My name is Damon Buxton. I'm a guitarist & composer.

Over the years I've been asked may times to record an album of holiday music for solo guitar. And I’ve kind of resisted because I was working on other music of my own.

But this year I've gathered together a collection of traditional Christmas songs, mostly from the 1800s, plus a new song I wrote called "Bells." I've arranged them in a way that is both soothing and fun to listen to. I've designed it to be comforting without getting in the way.

I'm asking for your help to pay for things like engineering, mixing, and mastering, CD duplication, and promotion.

I hope you'll join me in working to bring this record out, it’s going to be really fun.

Thanks!

Risks and challenges

I have the majority of the songs recorded. I still need to edit the last four. Mixing and mastering will have to be done, and a cover designed. I've shipped seven previous releases, three of them with Kickstarters, without problems.
