BIG NEWS for 2011! Many friends and fans have been asking when I will release another CD (my last real solo CD was 2006, Time Before the Fall). Between family commitments, touring, and projects for others, my own songs have had to wait a bit. However, with Kickstarter I see a way to move forward. Just as I like to get people involved in the music through singing along, clapping along, or co-writing songs in my workshop, Kickstarter will allow my community (friends/family/fans) to be involved in this project!
A Kickstarter campaign works something like a public radio and TV fund drive. There are various levels of sponsorship and special "Thank You" rewards that are available when you contribute. I will also be able to send updates and video/audio clips of the project as we go along. Some of the rewards include more direct involvement - such as a visit to the studio during one of the recording sessions.
With your help through this Kickstarter campaign, I'm going to create a new CD that takes my music to a whole new level of artistry. The songs will include some new ones, some previously unreleased and unrecorded songs, perhaps some reinterpretations of songs from my earlier CDs, and even a cover or two. I have a wonderful mix of musicians who have expressed an interest in contributing their talents to the project.
The only catch is that if the funding goal is not reached, there will be no project, and we have a 30 day deadline to reach that goal! There are also a few offers limited to the first 200 contributors - so don't put off taking a look at this!
If the goal is reached, I hope to do the recording during approximately the next 4 months or so and have a release date of late summer/early fall 2011. Thank you in advance for whatever you can contribute and for taking the time to learn about my project. Sincerely, Dave
