The first solo EP by Eric Coomer of the band KNAPSACKHEROES! Produced by Andrew Osenga in Nashville. Funded with your help.

UPDATE! We have met our Kickstarter campaign goal of $1500! Thanks so much! This means we will be able to finish the recording, mixing and mastering of the EP. We still need a few thousand dollars more to enable promotion, printing, photography, and distribution. So any help you can give is much appreciated.

Hi!

I'm Eric Coomer. I've been lead singer of the Nashville band KNAPSACKHEROES! for the past seven years. We've toured the region and played with nationally known bands. We even made it into the international finals in Hard Rock Cafe's "Hard Rock Calling" contest last year.

Now, I'm finally doing a solo EP.  My solo music is very different from my band's. Whereas KNAPSACKHEROES! is pretty difficult to describe musically, you can pretty much narrow my solo music down to "American rock music".

I began work on the EP in March, but I need your help to finish it and to get it mixed and mastered.

We are in an age when anyone can record music on their computers. So, it may seem odd to you that I need about $7000 for a five song EP. But to do what I am wanting to do I need to work with the best - the best studio with the best equipment, the best musicians and best production possible.

I'm very excited about the project, but to get it done, I will need your help. I've been able to raise some money and I've ponied up quite a bit of tax return money, but in order to get this project done, I still need about $2500. I've set the goal for $1500. That's what I need to finish the recording and get the EP properly mixed and mastered. But we need at least $1000 more to get the CD and other materials printed, to promote the EP and get it into stores such as iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

I'm working with Andrew Osenga to make the EP. Andrew is known as an excellent guitarist, singer/songwriter and as a member of The Normals and Caedmon's Call. He's also toured as a player with Jars of Clay and Andrew Peterson and has produced many excellent projects including his own. When I decided to do this project, I immediately thought he was the man for the job. After working with him, I know I was right.

I've set up a ton of great incentives (look over there on the right), so you can give a little or a lot. Either way, I will be forever indebted to you!
