On the 7th day of my fundraiser I have almost doubled my goal!  Thank you for your support!  Because of your generosity I am planning to start a few new projects to promote the album, including:

A music video for my song, 'Faith in a Man' by Synthetic PictureHaus

A covers album EP (maybe full length, depending on the time and money I have at the end of this whole process!)

Two guaranteed tours OUTSIDE of Colorado with the band!

Any extra money I make from this project will fund these extra ideas and any expenses that come up along the way!  Thank you for supporting me and ACTUALLY, REALLY showing your support by putting your money into my project and what I do.

On day three of the fundraiser we reached $10,000!!!

On day one of the fundraiser we raised $6,000 in 6 HOURS!!

KICKSTARTER STORY:

This kickstarter campaign is a chance for me to raise money to cover the costs of my 4th coming album, 'Like a King.'  This album features 13 brand new songs, some of which were written in the last year and some which were written long ago! The new album will be professionally recorded and packaged-with new photographs, lyrics and liner notes!  I have been working on 'Like a King' for the last few months and am very excited to announce it's release date is June 5th, 2012!  

If you've never recorded an album before, here are some of the expenses that go into making and releasing one:
Recording and studio time
Paying to have the album mastered
Paying the musicians who played on the album
Paying to have the album printed and pressed
Paying to get the album copyrighted
Paying to have the album promoted by a publicist
Paying the album artwork artist and photographer
Paying the videographers
Paying to have the album distributed to online stores
AND a bunch of other little costs and expenses that pop up out of nowhere!

I am an independent musician.  I don't have the backing of a record label or any fancy people giving me loans to pay for this project.  I appreciate you pre-ordering the album and buying these items now, because it will ensure I have enough money to pay for all the expenses as they come along in the process.  I am a full time musician, so my only income is the money I make on CD sales and from playing shows. (This is an AMAZING thing, but it doesn't leave me with a lot of extra money to save up and put towards these big purchases.)

KICKSTARTER RULES: You will not be charged until I meet my goal of $5,000.  If I do not reach my goal I will not receive any money and you will not be charged.  If I reach or surpass my goal of $6,000, you will be charged for what you pledged and the items you purchased will be shipped to you by the estimated delivery date listed in the description. 

SIDE NOTE: Don't get me wrong, guys, there are a lot of things going on in the world today and there have got to be a billion other people who need this money more than I do.  Please put down whatever you see fit.  I'm not curing cancer or doing anything too brilliant.  I'm just making music and if you've got a little extra to help me do that, I appreciate it!

Finally, thank you for supporting me on kickstarter now and especially during my last few years as a full time musician!  Your interest in my songs and videos on youtube, your attendance at the shows I play, and the way you've let my music into your lives and shared it with your friends and family has made my job as a musician possible (and really fun!).  Thank you so much for that gift! I hope you like the new album!

(The song featured in the video will be on the new album! It's called 'Faith in a Man')
