It’s been several years since “The Frosts” have released a full studio album of all-original gospel material - and we can finally announce that it is in the works! Even more exciting - this will be our first studio project as a family with myself (Michael), my wife Jen, and our daughter, Jael (now 8-years-old).
Over the past few years, I have written about 30 songs and recorded demos of them in my home studio. I brought some of the demos to Mr. Brandon Mashburn, a sought-after producer in Branson, MO, and he was immediately on board. Brandon manages Mansion Studios in Branson, which is a satellite studio affiliated with Mansion Records in Nashville. We’ve also worked a deal with Mr. John Mathis, who heads Mansion Records in Nashville, for distribution and radio single releases. Now that the songs are chosen and the path is open to record, it’s time to hire musicians, book studio time, and consider marketing costs. That’s where we need your help!
Recording a project from the ground up always requires investment. We estimate initial costs to run more than $5,000. We’re hopeful that we can raise the majority of that money here through pre-sales and incentives. Here’s what we propose:
WHAT WE WANT TO DO: Record our first gospel CD together as a family
HOW WE PLAN TO DO IT: We have already met with a producer and record company (Mansion), and they have offered to give us full radio support and a radio-ready CD - but we will be responsible for production costs.
Risks and challenges
Recording is expensive. WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR: The production costs of making a studio-quality, radio-ready CD takes several thousand dollars. The money pays for the studio time, professional musicians, studio engineer, producer, mixing and post-production, marketing, and advertising costs in trade publications.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
