| HELLO EVERYONE |
My name is Jackson Emmer and I’ve been a songwriter for ten years. What began as a hobby in my teens has turned into my love, my obsession, and my job.
Since my last full length record, I’ve been writing songs almost every week, I recorded a new album six times (yes, deep down, I’m a perfectionist. This latest version is the one I’ll actually release), and I spent a lot of time on the road, connecting with musicians and music-lovers around the country.
My new album is complete and ready to be handed over to a Grammy-winning sound engineer, and then sent out into the world. I want you to be a part of bringing this music to life, and getting it heard.
There’s a myth floating around that you just post your music on the internet, someone discovers you, and then you’ve got it made. That’s not usually how it works. It takes a village. If you’ve ever been to one of my shows, heard my music somewhere, or we've played together at a party- and you liked it,- I need you now. Share my music with your friends. Share this Kickstarter with them too. Pitch in if you can. I’ve already made the record- I'm asking you to help fund the release. Together, we can launch my best album yet, and make sure this music gets heard.
This is my next step. Let’s do it together.

| PROJECT BUDGET |
| STRETCH GOALS |
If we surpass our goal before the campaign ends, I'll take a poll of the backers and create a few Stretch Goals (other objectives, additions to this project). Achieving these goals will mean more free content for everyone.
Risks and challenges
Production times can vary, so if there's a delay in printing records or shirts or other physical products, that could slow down my delivery of rewards for backers- but I've planned ahead for this when creating the release schedule so it should be smooth sailing!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
