Help make Dave Provost's first cd since 2002 become a reality. Original alt.country from a seasoned singer/songwriter.

About this project

At long last, I'm preparing to go into the studio to record the follow up to my 2002 cd, "Home." Emerson Torrey (of the Providence bands the Schemers and the Raindogs) is producing, and a cast of characters from far and wide are in on the project, including Mark Cutler, members of the Shingles, and some other surprise guests from both coasts.

The songs for this album have taken shape over the last several years. They are a typical mix for me of roots music, country, pop, and rock and roll -- alt.country or Americana is still as good a label for the music as any, but the signature, I hope, is the honesty of the songs about "grownups trying to figure it out."

I am hoping to raise just over $10,000, which is a significant sum but will only partially fund the project. Money raised here on Kickstarter will help cover studio expenses and costs associated with the logistics of getting people and equipment back and forth from Nantucket to Providence. Depending how smoothly things go in the studio, it is possible that this funding could make a dent in duplication and distribution costs.

I have always made music for the love of it and not for the money, and, as my donor rewards show, I'm committed to giving back a good chunk of what I earn from this record to worthy causes. A portion of all my cd sales at most gigs goes to support an organization or institution that is important to me and to those who support my music. This record will be no exception to that practice.

Many thanks for your support. I look forward to sharing these songs with you and to celebrating the completion of this project when it's over.

Please stay in touch along the way...

Dave
