Dani Hoy's New EP: The End of A Long Road (a journey)

I've moved to the end of a very long road.

During my last project I lived in the North, Pennsylvania, to be exact. Through as series of difficult life changes I've found myself in Key West, Florida at the most southern end of US 1.

It's not been an easy journey. 

There are many fun things about living in a "wild" tourist town. It's quite beautiful, winter never touches it for long, and there is quite a lot of creativity here of all kinds. That is one of the biggest draws for me. I live to be creative.

So, here I am, 90 miles from Cuba. A lot has changed since 2013 when "Songs of Love and the Ocean" came out. There have been exciting advances and just as many huge adjustments.

I've been playing steady gigs in Key West and through The Florida Keys as well as on the mainland. Key West Chris Rehm and I have a band, The Shanty Hounds, that performs twice a week at Grunts Bar, 409 Caroline, in Key West. Come down and see us! My prior two CDs are still selling but,

It's time for something new…

My new EP, in creation now, will have 5 songs. My producer, Kevin Johnston, and I, have hand picked these songs as the best for this EP. He's already working on getting me the scratch music tracks. We are using studio musicians, some of whom are from Nashville and have recorded tracks for well-known artists such as Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes, Jimmy Buffett and more. Some of these musicians were on my previous projects, TropiGal and Songs of Love & the Ocean. The End of A Long Road will be different from these, though, in perspective and execution. I believe artists should always reach higher each time. Set new goals.

So, I need your help to make this CD come into being. Living expenses here are high and last year I was hit with some additional bills because of knee surgery. $7500 will cover recording/studio/production costs plus disc production and delivery of rewards. I've already forked over some money to get started so please chip in to help me get the EP out by April 1st. Yahoo!

Take a look at the reward, make a selection, and, when the Kickstarter is successful, we'll work out the rest of the details.

Thanks for all you can do and for helping me bring The End of A Long Road into reality.

Risks and challenges

Risks. Life is full of them. We are trying to get this project done in a very short period of time. Getting the CDs created, turned around, mailed… Hopefully we'll get this done in time. It takes a lot to schedule musicians, get the music together, mixed, mastered… This project will be completed but the timeline is our main issue.
