Just a few days left. I'm completely blown away by the level of response we've gotten. Thanks so much for your support.
Hi, I'm Jason Harrod. I write songs, sing and play guitar. I've traveled all over the US and some other parts of the world playing, singing, and leading songwriting workshops.
I'm asking for your help to complete my third studio album, Outposts. This album will be comprised of what I believe are the best songs I've written.
Once, a radio interviewer asked me what my songs were about, and I said "longing." He thought that was an "angsty" answer and told me so. I know he's right, yet I still can't think of a better answer. My songs are about longing -- to know and be known by God and my fellow human beings, to be free in spirit, mind and body, to feel my soul careening over mountaintops to the sea. That said, I also try to be funny.
The record is almost finished and is sounding terrific. I recorded the songs in Philadelphia with an accomplished, talented, and kind group of people including producer/engineer Brian McTear, engineer Jonathan Low, bassist/arranger Joshua Stamper, and Drummer Patrick Berkery. Brian and Jonathan have done great work recently with Dr. Dog, the Dead Milkmen, and Sharon Van Etten. Josh and Patrick keep things locked down and truckin' for Danielson.
I'm asking for your help to raise funds for mastering, graphic design and artwork, and manufacturing. If I raise enough to press vinyl, I'll do that. If I raise more than expected, but not enough for vinyl, I'll put the funds towards promotion.
To your right are a bunch of incentives. I've tried to create levels of giving for friends of all economic standings, so that everyone can pitch in if they want, whatever amount they feel is right. Every giving level comes with at least one benefit. I hope there's something there that looks good to you. If you can't afford to contribute financially, you can help by spreading the word about Outposts and passing along news about this campaign, via facebook, twitter and whatever other means you like.
Thanks for your help!. I'm thankful to be blessed with an amazingly encouraging and supportive community of family, friends, and fans.
All the best,
