I am an independent musician out of south eastern Wyoming and I'm headed to Nashville in late July to record my first full length album! I write and compose Americana style music that encompasses blues, country, folk, and bluegrass influences. My lyrics are very genuine and honest and the music focuses more on serving the song’s stories than showcasing instrumental prowess.
I have been working so hard on this project and I have 13 incredible tracks lined out for this album that will produce almost a full hour of music. I hired an amazing, Nashville-based band to back my tracks, an excellent sound engineer, and a top of the line professional sound studio to record in.
The only thing I need now is your help! As you can imagine this is all quite expensive, and being the independent musician that I am I don't have the luxury of a record label's budget. Between studio fees, musician fees, mixing, production, legal fees, documenting, promotion, travel, etc., I have more than I can handle. That's why I started this project...to give you, my fans, the opportunity to pre-buy the new album and a ton of other great prizes while simultaneously raising the funds needed to produce the album.
All of the income generated by this project will go solely and directly to creating my album and getting it into your hands as soon as possible! But remember, this is an all-or-nothing campaign and if I do not raise the full amount needed by this campaign's end date I receive absolutely no funding! Any and all forms of support are greatly appreciated, especially word of mouth.
I would appreciate it so much if you would share my project with your family and friends so they too can be introduced to some great new music and be a part of creating my debut album. I'll be posting project and news updates regularly through my social media sites along the way: so head to http://facebook.com/DougBalmain, like it, share it with your friends, keep up to date with what's going on with album production, get your pre-release albums ordered for you and your friends (tip: new music always makes for a great Christmas present!), and with your help we'll get this album recorded and released for the world to hear!
Thank you so much for your support!
