"Kind Ghosts" - an electronic, funky pop solo debut full-length album by Derek Nicoletto. After Telling on Trixie broke up and Derek and the Darling jumpstarted to a halt, I decided it was time once and for all to go solo, kids. That doesn't mean I play alone, but the vision, apparitions or real, are all mine. After all, I can still collaborate with people, co-write with friends, but overall and in the end, I stand as myself. The recent break up of my bands, of my marriage and the passing of my grandfather leave me wanting to memorialize the positive aspects of all these people and experiences. They are my "Kind Ghosts." Some old songs, never recorded but bubbling with potential are getting their shot now as "Kind Ghosts." Some former members of my bands will appear as "Kind Ghosts." Some songs from my childhood will be re-recorded as cover songs as "Kind Ghosts." The "Kind Ghost" helping me make it possible is Platinum-selling, honored producer Jamie Siegel, who has worked with me on every project of my recording career. With YOU, my "Kind Ghosts," and your donations, I'll be able to finish my project in the studio. Write it, record it, mix and master it, so it has the potential to succeed as many of my songs have in the past - having played now on 20+ TV programs and hundreds of radio stations worldwide. Imagine hearing one of the "Kind Ghosts" songs in "Real World" and saying - I helped make that song! It's a real possibility. The past seven seasons of that show alone have used my music. The money raised will be used for recording production costs, mixing, mastering and duplication.
I want you to be a part of this with me. Some of you have helped before when we raised enough funds to make the Telling on Trixie album "Ugly, Broke & Sober." I hope you'll find your participation in "Kind Ghosts" more personal, intimate and always, entertaining. At a minimum, I need to raise $5k. If we get more, GREAT! That means more songs and the support to share them. Check all the different levels of donation. Welcome to my new journey. It's all or nothing on kickstarter, so if you can only give $5, ask a friend who can give $45 to bump you up to a bigger reward level. This album is a milestone for me. I am solo, but not alone. - Derek
